The Democracy Cult
The Democracy Cult
The temptation to rule our neighbors and be corrupted by that power, devours the soul of good men. Only Jesus passed the test.
- “Show me that age and country where the rights and liberties of the people were placed on the sole chance of their rulers being good men without a consequent loss of liberty! I say that the loss of that dearest privilege has ever followed, with absolute certainty, every such mad attempt.” Patrick Henry
The constitution created an indirect democracy in the heart of the republic and attempted to chain and control it by the virtue and wisdom of the people. The people have created a common mass.
- “I often wonder whether we do not rest our hopes too much upon constitutions, upon laws and courts. These are false hopes, believe me; these are false hopes. Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no Constitution, no law, no court can save it.”
Democracy is no answer, indirect or pure. All have a hand in the covetous collection of our “neighbor’s goods”. The soiled sin of plundering our neighbors through taxation and usury is a cancer of the soul from which no society may recover.
A democracy is a government of the people - or at least 51% of them - but it is not necessarily a government “for the people”. It is a collective government, composing one great body. Instead of the individual freeman the mob is King.
In order to gain from the gifts, gratuities, and benefits of a Democracy, one must be willing to take something from his neighbor. Dependence on those benefits graced by the benefactors of the state, automatically brings about a new state of mind in the people - and a new corporate state is born out of their collective dependence. “Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.”
Covetous ambition changes men. Their own greed and sloth in turn changes the world in which they live. When they have power over their neighbor, though that power be small, it corrupts them, it tempts and taints their souls. They become addicted to their own desires, sloth, avarice, and self indulgence until they equate freedom with comfort, liberty with affluence, and the responsibility bestowed on them by God as an intolerable burden.
In a Democracy the voice of the people elect men who call themselves benefactors and guarantee certain advantages and blessings to the people. They swear to provide them but in return, demand allegiance. These Benefactors take on the responsibility of care and provide but obtain a corresponding power to exercise authority, demand compliance, and extract support.
- “Familiarize yourself with the chains of bondage and you prepare your own limbs to wear them. Accustomed to trample on the rights of others, you have lost the genius of your own independence and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises among you.” Abraham Lincoln
When we were convinced that it was no longer a sin to desire benefits at the expense of our neighbor “Faith, Hope, and Charity began for to flee out of our Church”. It is this custom and sin of coveting our neighbor’s goods, even a buckle, that separates us from the order of Melchizedek and the inheritance of the kingdom - each man becomes a new George III and a traitor to freedom and liberty, “rejecting” God, “crucifying” Christ and by the ensuing debt cursing our children “with covetous practices”. 
“He who can alter my state of mind, is my master.”
The Kingdom of God has always relied upon the freewill offerings of the people to fill its treasuries, for love is the treasure we seek. In the Kingdom it is better to give than receive. The Church was appointed a kingdom to serve and feed Christ’s flock. Their titular leaders were the best servants who gave to others rather than keep for themselves. The Church was the last servant government. When our minds were changed, the Church changed.

Why did John Adams say that the United States Constitution "... was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other"? The book "Contracts, Covenants, and Constitutions" reveals the contrasting nature of a free government and those established by contracts or constitutions. The changes in the reach of the modern American government and the morals of society have altered the path and destiny of a once free people. Chapter-by-chapter this book, free online, brings the original Constitution of the United States into historical contexts and that moral perspective. It also takes a detailed look at the prohibition in the Bible concerning government by contract, and the prohibitions on delegated authority for constitutions we have failed to address. Order
