Re: The United States NEEDS to Repent or Die.

Brother Esaias, could you compare your writings on theocracy with what Locke proposed? Showing the difference in the two?

Infants are clean slates, hence the Bible calls them innocent.

Well, its interesting because it's a view that Bro Esaias and Locke have in common.

But, where they differ is whether power to govern comes from the people or from God.

But the proof is in the pudding.

Locke, Grotius, and other Enlightenment philosophers laid the foundation for humanism, getting further and further away from Divine Revelation, until we wind up where we are today: a godless, Christless society whose basis of jurisprudence and ethics has abandoned any reliance on God and His Word. The quotes I gave from Locke are a clear example and demonstration of the fatal flaw in his philosophy of government. He begins with assuming as true something that is completely untrue, and the rest is history. Literally.
There is a good message/sermon/lesson in there!
Many today interpret the scriptures in the light of their own philosophy!

Can you have good leadership without the Holy Ghost?
