THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION

by Pastor Cary Gordon

posted on July 31st, 2010 at 2:41 PM

On June 29 and 30th, of 2010, Opinion Dynamics conducted a scientific national poll.[i] It revealed that 78% of Americans believe the founding fathers would be unhappy with our condition as a nation today. No doubt, the corruption and abuse of the 1st Amendment in our courts would be their chief horror.

Unbeknownst to most of today’s attorneys, judges, and even modern political science professors, (much less our public school students and elected officials), the United States Constitution, according to Professor Lutz of the University of Houston, can only be correctly interpreted in the light of the pre-existing state constitutions. Lutz laments, “We cannot understand much of what we find in the [federal constitution] without also reading the state constitutions in effect at that time.”[ii] Only in an extended reading, can one correctly place the Federal Constitution in its intended context, as framed in 1787.[iii]

Again, Lutz states, “…the Constitution is an incomplete foundation document until and unless the state constitutions are also read…obviously, the United States Constitution assumes, in fact requires, the existence of state constitutions if it is to make any sense.”[iv] Proof of this fact may be demonstrated when one considers that the Constitution refers directly or indirectly to the thirteen state constitutions, (in existence in 1787), more than fifty times in its own forty-two sections.[v]

There is a previous post from Pastor Cary dated 24 December 2015. Entitled: There is no grace without Law.  https://cracked-pot.com/2015/12/24/there-is-no-grace-without-law-2/

Can a man change a man—short answer-NO, only Jesus can change a man.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2 NKJV.

Renewal, Anakainosis, Strongs#342, a renewing or a renovation which makes a person different than in the past.butterfly

To “renew” is “to renovate” implying a restoration to freshness or to an original state. It implies the potential of redemption’s power to reinstate features of God’s original intention for humanity and a recovery of many potentialities of the soul as designed before the fall.

The mind speaks to the intellect or understanding, but also includes all that is described in the word “mind-set,” that is, the feelings (emotions) and the will (a group as a definition of the soul, mind, will, emotions). Being “transformed” by the renewal of the mind indicates a literal “change in the form or formulas of thought or being.”

This speaks of redemption’s provision of power to instill godliness in us—a power that transforms:

  1. Our thoughts, which lead to formulating
  2. Our purposes, which proceed to dictate our actions; and, so,
  3. Our actions become character-determining habits, shaping the life and setting the course for the future.

The path to godly living is not some complex plan, nor is it energized by the flesh, but it does call the believer to willing submission to the Father’s provision and ways.

Seeing the invisible: Therefore, we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing yet the inward man is being renewed day by day (speaks to a process over time) 2 Cor. 4:16.

And have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him… Col. 3:10. By your patience possess your souls. Luke 21:19.

Seek the one who can transform a man Jesus.

 

 

Not philosophy but Christ.

Many are and have been sounding the alarm as watchmen on the wall to the latest antics of the Postmodern/Emergent group of professing Christians. These self-proclaimed elitists’ who proclaim the Word of God to be extinct and needs to be sooped up to meet the need of the social gospel of today’s degenerate life styles.

I would add the Apostle Paul’s words in Colossians 2:6-10. As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him. Rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you been taught abounding in it with thanksgiving. Beware lest anyone plunder you or take you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all rule and authority.

The Word of God stands as what it is and always will be, the eternal Word of God. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. Matt.24:35.

The supposed reason for this new approach is to reach generation X and the disillusionment with the instructional church (the graveyard of the lifeless churches in this country). The Word of God is sufficient to all peoples in all generations in all cultures.  There is the faulty reasoning for all the worldly elements likened to a centipede type of theology with its many-segmented pods each bearing their own philosophy of the world.

Into this maze comes a trail of truth to dispel the heretical teachings that put firm feet on the ground of shaky theology. It is a documentary entitled: Emergent/Emerging Church Documentary by Elliott Nesch. There is a You tube video: https://youtu.be/OF-CHA4Z2FQ.

Do you want to know a secret?

The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He shall pluck my feet out of the net. Psalm 25:14-15.

In all era’s godly men and women have practiced the fear of the Lord. The Scriptures have a lot to say about the fear of the Lord.

  • It is “clean enduring forever” (Ps.19:9).
  • It can be learned (Ps.34:11).
  • It is the “beginning of wisdom” and the “beginning of knowledge” (Ps.111:10; Prov. 1:7).psalm25-14-15

Our text reveals several promises to the one who fears the Lord:

  • Guidance: “Him shall He teach in the way that He chooses” (Ps.25:12).
  • Spiritual prosperity: “He himself shall dwell in prosperity” (ps.25:13).
  • Future posterity: “his descendants shall inherit the earth” (Ps. 25:13).
  • Divine confidant: “The secret of the Lord is with them” (Ps.25:14).
  • Covenant: “He will show them His covenant” (ps.25:14).
  • Deliverance: “He shall pluck my feet out of the net” (Ps.25:15).

God reveals His secret council in close friendships, as He did to Abraham who feared the Lord (Gen. 18:17-19), and as He did to the apostles (John 15:15).
