A Nation of Slaves and Infidels

But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. ~1 Timothy 5:8

Among the various groups of conservative Christians, this verse is still taken somewhat seriously. The main problem that our people face is that this verse is always viewed through the lens of the modern culture. No one ever expects you to actually and literally “take care of your family’s needs.” You are expected to trade your labor for money so you can trade money for all the things you need that you can’t provide for your family because you are always at work. In fact if you busy yourself providing for your family with your own hands from the land many “christians” will question whether you are “providing for your family” because of your lack of cash! Cash you don’t need to buy things that you grew yourselves! Christian men need to start asking themselves what would happen if the whole pagan economic system collapsed. Could you feed your family? Could you keep your house? Do you have any of the skills every human throughout history (until now) had for providing for his own, or would you be “worse than an unbeliever”. Lets take this even further and consider this quote by Berry.

A person dependent on somebody else for everything from potatoes to opinions may declare that he is a free man, and his government may issue a certificate granting him his freedom, but he will not be free. He is that variety of specialist known as a consumer, which means that he is the abject dependent of producers. How can he be free if he can do nothing for himself? What is the First Amendment to him whose mouth is stuck to the tit of the “affluent society”? Men are free precisely to the extent that they are equal to their own needs. The most able are the most free.

–Wendell Berry, “Discipline and Hope” in A Continuous Harmony (1972), pp. 124

How dose the church expect to ever change the culture or fight the pagan economic establishment when they are Total Slaves to the corporate-banking elite. Did Paul not warn us about becoming slaves to men after Christ bought us and made us His slaves! Why don’t we hear these things on Sunday morning. Could it be the institutional church is as dependent on this wicked system as its members. This why the establishment is not at all worried about the Tea Party Crowd or Birchers or any other anti NWO group. Go ahead and spend time and money fighting for the second amendment of the first or the tenth. They know you can’t feed yourselves, they know how to end your revolt before it gets off the ground. Food for thought, ain’t it. Articles like this are in the news every other day now and its only a matter of time before they have total control. Forget gold and silver, invest in food production while you still can. Or you could go sip some fluoride water and eat some GMO corn chips on the way to the neocon endorsed protest.
