Think Tank: Church of the Rebels

f you have felt rejected in other spiritual groups or just want a place to talk about what you believe, this is the place for you. ALL RELIGIONS are accepted here. Even the choice to not believe in any God at all. 

Have you ever felt like the man in the story Jesus told who threw a dinner party for his friends but no one showed up? Instead, each friend had an excuse why they could not come or did not want to come.  The excuses seemed important to that person, two had bought something that needed their attention and the other just got married. Yet, even though the excuses seemed valid, the man throwing the dinner party was really hurt, angry in fact. Rather than allow the food to go to waste he sent out invites to anyone in the streets to come and enjoy the feast.

God's greatest love law demands that we love our neighbor as ourselves. As Christians, we call that our sacred duty to lift up anyone who is denied the simple truth of Human = Human anywhere in the world.

#blacklivesmatter per the USA Supreme Law of the Land

Federalist 54 is the legal argument by James Madison to support 14th Amendment as the Equality Law. According to James Madison, the US Constitution acknowledges the slaves as a moral person and when the law no longer sees them as property, they are to be afforded full rights as all the other inhabitants.

This assignment of full rights was denied the slaves at Emancipation because Abraham Lincoln was assassinated and the Acting President Andrew Johnson pardoned Civil War criminals instead. Said Acting President later faced impeachment and was saved by it with only one vote. That should say a lot to the criminal behavior in the neglect of giving the freed slaves the status of equality that they were authorized to have by the Supreme Law of the Land.

This blatant violation of civil rights demanded by the US Constitution must be corrected in 2020. So that any officer who receives judgment and persecution for violent acts done to white Americans will receive the same allocation of justice for acts done to Black Americans and any minority group, including LGBTQ.

14th Amendment is clear in its interpretation:
American Citizen = full rights and protections of federal laws and the US Constitution no matter what.
State Resident = full rights and protections of state laws no matter what.

It is time to put away the Jim Crow governing and declare the United States of America the nation where all American Citizens are treated equally under the eyes of law, and eventually under the eyes of man.

We have this authority under the US Constitution 1st and 10th Amendment to make such a demand from our government leaders and agencies as the Ethical Overseers of all branches of government.

We are the 4th Branch of Government via the authority of the Supreme Law of the Land.

Being present is a form of support. It shows you care in your church. It shows you want the church to meet its goal – to bring in the strangers so they can share in the fellowship of the church community. If the community is not there, then the strangers are treated to a meal and a good time but do not get that fellowship of the church body. This leaves the volunteers to wonder why they spent so much time and effort into the event when the church couldn’t even be bothered to show up. Instead of feeling happy at the good they brought to the strangers, they are left feeling rejected just like the man in the parable.

The Parable
Luke 14:16-24
“A man once gave a great banquet and invited many. 17 And at the time for the banquet he sent his servant[a] to say to those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’

18 But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. Please have me excused.’ 19 And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them. Please have me excused.’ 20 And another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’

21 So the servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house became angry and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and crippled and blind and lame.’

22 And the servant said, ‘Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.’ 23 And the master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. 24 For I tell you,none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.’”

"We do not wrestle w/ flesh and blood but of spiritual wickedness in high places" Ephesians 6:12

It's not the act of love (sex) that destroys churches. It is the churches' insistence that God nitpicks sin that turns people away from God by the hypocrisy shown. Churches who nitpick and condone individual sins act as a judge. Only God is able to judge sin.

"Do not judge" - Jesus

Every day I pray, "Dear God, I'm sorry we are such jerks. I'm sorry that we failed to do the one job you gave us to do - be good stewards of the earth and all that lives within it. I am sorry that we failed to show the same unconditional love, mercy, grace, you showed us. Instead, we turned ourselves into a god & nitpicked & judged sin determining who was worthy of your grace. We made a mockery of your love for the whole world.

We turned songs & cloths (flags) into idols that we were willing to go to war w/ those who did not worship it in ritual. We turned people away from God by the hypocrisy of our actions to the instructions of the Savior, Jesus Christ, who judged no one, talked w/ everyone, & walked in the crowds w/ those who society condemned and labeled. We let 7 deadly sins displace the fruits of the Spirit.

When given the opportunity to love we chose to hate. When given the opportunity to help, we chose to harm. When given the opportunity to give, we chose to hoard our money and clutch it tightly in our fists. We are flawed. We are not perfect. We can change if given a chance.

We are sorry God for abusing you for greed & vanity. We let our pride get in the way. I know that pride cometh before the fall, but please give us another chance to do better. Please do not remove the freedom that we took away from others. Do not destroy us. I'm sorry, we suck.
