Do You Have The Wrong Perspective?
"Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence." John 18:36
"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
The gospel has not asked any man to defend the faith. You can not defend your faith. Your faith, as a shield, defends you. When the gospel is tied to the government of this world (with government, i.e., the sword and death, being used to protect it), the power of government (the sword) usurps the authority of God (faith). God has asked no man to kill another man for the gospel, i.e., for "the Kingdom of God." When government defends the faith it is not of God. It can only defend the individual and the family from the abuse of another man and government itself that might try to take the right to have faith away. Civil government must place barriers against itself in order not to harm the citizen, negating his right of faith and "freedom of conscience," under God, otherwise the citizen can not protect himself from government's abuse (from those using government for their own "self interest").
Government of restraint (limited government) is based upon the father's/Father's authority system (the structure of the gospel i.e., with the Son's obedience to His Heavenly Father), while government of tyranny (socialism-globalism) is based upon the rebellious nature of the child (human nature), establishing itself over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority system. The American Revolution removed the father's authority system (the King's authority) from the Federal, State, County, Township, City, and Village (breaking up the branches of government into three parts, the law maker, presider over the law, and judging from the law, divided from one another), yet it recognized the father's/Father's authority in the home (the father being the law maker, presiding over the law, and judging according to it), which created the next generation of citizens having a "guilty conscience" for doing wrong—the foundation of civil government. The French Revolution, and all socialist, Marxist, globalist (velvet) Revolutions since, not only negate the father's authority in the nation, state, county or parish, township, city, and village (uniting all branches through the use of the soviet system, with all branches networking between themselves through the use of departments, all dialoguing opinions to a consensus), they also negate the father's/Father's authority in the home, producing citizens of unrighteousness and abomination. While the father chastens his children, casting out those who reject his authority, government which functions without the father's restraints, following after the nature of the child, persecutes and kills those who refuse to do as it says instead—have you ever seen a two year old child who does not get his way. He would kill you if he were strong enough or had the weapon whereby to do it with.
The gospel message was therefore accepted (its system of "freedom of the conscience," i.e., the individual, under God) in the American Revolution but was rejected in the French Revolution (which engendered "freedom from the conscience," freeing the individual from Godly restraint). In essence your representative is as a child sent by you, his father to the store to buy your goods, i.e., to re-present you. When the child no longer represents the father, i.e., the constituents, spending his money (the constituents money, i.e., their tax dollars) on himself, i.e., on his "self interests," the father (you the constituent) no longer send him to the store to represent you. In the consensus process (where there is no true representation) he not only gains access to your money but your line of credit as well, spending you into debt for his and his friends "self interests." Sound like today. With American now following after the principles of the French Revolution, with its use of the consensus process, the gospel message is no longer accepted and the home (with its private as in family, convictions, property, and business) is no longer protected from government usurpation and abuse, using all that is yours (which includes your children's inheritance) for its own selfish gain.
While government can not defend the faith, it can defend the system which engenders faith, i.e., the father's authority in the home. Socialism is all about negating faith by negating the father's authority in the home. When father's no long have faith, i.e., are living for their "self interests" of the 'moment,' their children become victim to the enemy of faith, their carnal nature. The issue is which kingdom are you living under, the one with the Father's authority or the one without?
"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6
