Power Under Limiting Control

A Conventicle Preacher before the JusticesA Conventicle Preacher before the Justices

“As the power of the magistrate is not an absolute power which he is at liberty to employ as he chooses, so neither is the right of the elector an absolute right which he is at liberty to exercise as he chooses. Both the one and the other are placed under the limiting control of the Divine Law; and it is only when they are used according to this law that they are used aright.”

– William Symington

The Abuser As The One Who First States His Case

He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.

~Proverbs 18:17~

No 3909 Page 104, accusé M. Malvy. Croquis Noël DorvilleA Cry For Justice makes an interesting point about Proverbs 18:17.  I found this helpful since I have had this verse thrown at me a few times when I tried to make the truth known about something:

“Let me explain something that is vitally important for us to get a firm grasp on…

The abuse victim who reports the evil deeds of her abuser to someone is not the first to state her case. She is, in fact, “the other” who this Proverbs says comes later and “examines” the first accuser.”

We Have Lost Our Vision, Direction, and Soul

Dissolve Into The Countryside

Otto Scott 1992:

We are living in very strange times. Some are tempted to call them End Times, for our civilization seems to have lost the vision that was responsible for its rise to world dominance only a century ago, and seems now to have lost its direction. Some might even say that it has lost its soul.

This is odd, because other civilizations — and there are other civilizations — seem to have regained theirs. The Islamic world is rising again, thanks to the oil revenues the West has handed over to them. Islam is now arming with missiles containing nuclear warheads and the most advanced warplanes — all products of the West that the West is selling to anyone who pays the price.

Prediction #3: Fewer and fewer people will value religious freedom.”
