Are Christians Idiots: Footnotes

By Brother Gregory Williams
Follow up note:
Christians were idiotes, unregistered and not involved in public affairs of the Roman government or the Pharisees. When it came to participating in the welfare of governments who forced the contributions of the people they would not do it. This is why they were commonly persecuted.
The Modern Christian thinks it is okay to do so even though it is clearly coveting their neighbor’s goods through the power and the agency of government that are often called benefactors but force the contributions of the people.
This is a “damnable heresies… and bring upon themselves swift destruction.”30 The word destruction31 can mean the destruction of money or even the whole economy.
Peter goes on to say, in 2 Peter 2:2 “And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.”
Unfortunately, it is often the modern Churches that are leading the people in these pernicious ways.
What are those destructive ways?
Peter tells you in the very next verse.
“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:3
We offer volumes of research and resources to take the scales off your eyes.33 We have put it all together over many decades. If your heart does not show you the truth of charity and love vs. force in forming a viable society no fact, no research, no expert opinion will undue your bondage.
“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)”
“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.” 2 Peter 2:4…
The word translated government is kuriotes34 meaning “dominion”. God gave men Dominion. When men give that dominion to other men they are neglecting the personal obligation to exercise that God given responsibility… Why dopes the modern Church speak evil of dignities…
“For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth — to know the worst and to provide for it. “Patrick Henry

20Mark 7:11 “But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, [It is] Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; [he shall be free]. And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.”
