Operation Agape TiE®

Part – 1

Part – 2

21st September 2017

Dear Elders & Members of the Bride of Christ,

Greetings in the matchless name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

This gift comes to you today on my dear wife’s (Anna Motupalli) birthday!

At the outset we want to make it clear that this Tech Missionary & Son of David is able to bring this $1000 gift to each member of the Bride of Christ through the freewill offerings by individual local churches and their leaders of their “tithe of the tithe” (Num18:26).

Our calling is based on Matt27:59 and Rev19:8, which means our ministry is for the whole universal Church as a Church of churches, namely to “tie” (divine-connect) all the local churches together as one body of Christ and present her as a Bride, comprising 144,000 Called & Chosen & Faithful (Rev17:14), which together with “a great multitude which no one could count” (Rev7:9) we are calling Agape® Kingdom with the status of a nation. This kingdom is conceptualised as a “community on the cloud.” It is basically a social media, custom designed for the Christian community. We get to have spiritual communion through it better than Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and even real life meetings. By that i mean, we get to know each other’s spirit, not merely our appearances, as is the case with physical interactions in real life. As i shared with you earlier, please hold such spiritual communions in high esteem. But we do understand the demerits of Facebook and WhatsApp to the youth, who are becoming glued to it for entertainment and other illicit activity. It is another reason why we want to wean them from dirty social media and other internet sites and provide a clean and safe environment for Christians to enjoy community in a Gospel-centred and Christ-headed (not mere Christ-centred) manner (i.e. in Christocracy).

At Agape® Kingdom we include unbelievers and non-Christians, who are searching for the Truth or who simply appreciate the Lord Jesus Christ and His ministry. But the Bride of Christ, comprising 144,000 Called + Chosen + Faithful (Rev17:14), enjoys the eThrone with Christ. At AgapeKingdom.org , we are giving a unique gift to local church Servants of God and Pastors worldwide who can offer their baptized church members and in good standing, a tie to Agape® Kingdom for citizenship there. We hope Agape Kingdom will offer a foretaste of the heavenly kingdom we will experience when we actually go to be with God.

In addition to the above Christian community universal church service at Agape® Kingdom… as a complementary gift to both Servants of God (who can stay engaged or “tied” with their flock 24×7 with this through special permits given them in Agape® Kingdom), as well as to EACH church member, who will join, we are giving the following, which are worth over $1000 USD, for FREE (no traps) with a freewill-offering of ANY amount received only from local Church Pastors, who are shepherding a church having at least two or three members, forming a binding corporate entity (Matt18:20), recognised in Agape® Kingdom:

Agape TiE® Ecosystem – Home

Persona Extender | EoT | eThrone

Patent pending Agape TiE® Ecosystem – Home, which is a tie of all appliances in the home, including home security, TV, AC, DVD player, Audio system, Projector, Fans and Lights,   all of which can be controlled from the mobile;

All Servants of Christ who hold positions in the Body of Christ according to 1Cor12:28 & 1Cor11:3 will also have their place on the eThrone, just as the Lord had promised in Rev3:21. This is our corporate preparation as one virgin Bride (Matt25:1ff), not mere individual preparation as virgins without blemish, to receive the Bridegroom and King of kings.

Thank you and God bless you with much fruit!

And God bless Agape Kingdom!

“I will come to you, and I will bless you” (Ex20:24c).

Abiding in His grip,
Respectfully,

Humility

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli

Humility is ranked #1 in the kingdom (Matt18:1-4) after which only are love, faith & hope. What’s more, when God sees a lack of holiness in us, it can be compensated with humility because God, who is love, “covers a multitude of sin.”

QUESTION: Would Christ love to see ourselves placed above the others?

Let’s get the fundamentals right!

1Cor 12:28 NIV: And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.

And

1Cor 11:3 NIV: Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

Mat 10:41 NIV: Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a righteous man’s reward.

Rom 13:7 NIV: Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

C.S. Lewis on equality:

“There is no spiritual sustenance in flat equality. When equality is treated not as a medicine or a safety-gadget, but as an ideal, we begin to breed that stunted and envious sort of mind which hates all superiority. That mind is the special disease of democracy, as cruelty and servility are the special diseases of privileged societies. It will kill us all if it grows unchecked. The man who cannot conceive a joyful and loyal obedience on the one hand, nor an unembarrassed and noble acceptance of that obedience on the other – the man who has never even wanted to kneel or to bow – is a prosaic barbarian. Where men are forbidden to honor a king, they honor millionaires, athletes, or film-stars instead — even famous prostitutes or gangsters.”

Lucifer BTW was the first one to demand equal rights.  Equality, egalitarianism is luciferian.

Luke 14:11 NIV: For everyone who exalts himself [above his limits] will be humbled, and he who humbles himself [below his limits] will be exalted.”

Humility is knowing our station.

The exhortation to servant-hood is directed at god-servants, not at those being served for the purpose of usurping.

Arminian Ethic & Wedleases

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: , , ,

The Washington Post proposal on this subject has surely opened a can of worms.

As a teacher, who will be judged more severely, i take upon this subject with fear and trembling. The following analysis is just to begin the discussion and should not be construed as definitive.

A partner is either a blessing or a lesson in a person’s life that God has placed. A blessing is an encouragement to continue while a lesson is suggestive of a termination.

The crime of disrespect/lack of love may not be grounds for capital punishment as some expect to happen. God gives a second chance as He does with teeth.

Women lose their virginity after the wedding and will be the losing partners in the non-renewal of wedleases. Women will also be the bigger losers as they will not possess the graces that they once did. Shame is the intensely painful feeling they would have of believing they are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging. Therefore, a divorce rather than the convenience of a wedlease seems more appropriate.

But divorce has become something of a stigma among churchgoers, so much so that the wronged party–the victim–is seen as the evil one and demonized when they ask for a divorce. Verses like “‘I hate divorce,’ says the Lord,” are invoked. And the married life, if there is one at all, goes on as a bondage rather than as a blessing.

People’s character changes and some take wedlock as a license to sin as do many a Calvinist, who believes once-saved-is-always-saved.

The relationship between a husband and his wife is likened to the relationship Christ has with His Church (Eph5:23-33). Dr. John Piper agrees that God sets aside corporate election of Israel for the sake of the election of individuals from around the world, is after the fact. What this means to a marital relationship is that there is no such thing as permanence or unconditional love. Eternal security exists only as long as the fish remains in water.

Is it not a good testimony when people renew their vows like Ram & Sita upon the expiry of a wedlease that maybe in place? Opportunity should be given to good couples to stand out in the midst of darkness. But we are not to create darkness for darkness sake. The context of an expired wedlease could exist for the renewal of vows to have any import or meaning. With a renewed wedlease, a marriage has the groundswell for happiness.

“What God has joined together, let no man separate,” holds true. But the prerogative for marriage, divorce or the establishment of a workable wedlease is with Christ, whom the Church possesses.

Children are not a side to the whole issue. Women are actually saved through childbearing (1Tim2:15). As for men, they should take responsibility for the children and not shrug from it. At this point, it seems to me that divorce, however smearing it maybe to one’s character, is the only viable instrument that society can afford to have. The Arminian freewill of renewing vows–if not a wedlease–in the context of a possible divorce, would be the only demonstration and assertion of love on the part of the husband, and respect on the part of the wife.

Friendship Evangelism

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: , ,

Initially, we do need to scratch them where it itches before giving them the eternal-life-giving-food. If that means sugar-coating your bitter-pill (truth), by all means do it! But let’s not use a hosepipe to drive the amrutham down someone’s throat. Friendship Evangelism is evident in Jesus’ own ministry (Jn6:26-27). In 2Tim4:3-4, Paul is speaking of those who exchange the truth for a lie altogether; not merely in the coating.

This is not salvation-by-works as is often misunderstood. A coating is a coating. We should not go overboard in an attempt to please. Nor should we come across as a fake in our love for others. But any humanitarian aid should only serve as a sugarcoat to the eternal-life-giving-food. Use available resources for maximizing results both in quantity and quality. A point to remember here is that God does not usually call the Qualified, but qualifies the Called. But also remember that there are matthews, whom He calls, who are from the beginning, God’s works-in-progress.

In short: Give the beggar the eternal-life-giving-food. Sugarcoat if you must. If not this life, he will have the more enduring eternal-life.

Friendship here, is anesthesia before the tortuous incision by truth on the diseased hearts of men.

But in all this, let us never forget the example that Christ set for us in His costly caring for us. How we’ve been befriended! “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).

Cry of God’s heart today

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: , ,

It is indeed the cry of God’s heart today.  It is the tears of the saints. That part of Christ that remains on earth is still sacrificing for the sinner (Colossians 1:24).

The Lord spoke to me just now through the following scripture portion and affirmed once again that the Great Commission is our primary Agape Justice (Mercy) Ministry:

Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. “For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. “When he had begun to settle them, one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. “But since he did not have the means to repay, his lord commanded him to be sold, along with his wife and children and all that he had, and repayment to be made. “So the slave fell to the ground and prostrated himself before him, saying, `Have patience with me and I will repay you everything.’ “And the lord of that slave felt compassion and released him and forgave him the debt. “But that slave went out and found one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and he seized him and began to choke him, saying, `Pay back what you owe.’ “So his fellow slave fell to the ground and began to plead with him, saying, `Have patience with me and I will repay you.’ “But he was unwilling and went and threw him in prison until he should pay back what was owed. “So when his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were deeply grieved and came and reported to their lord all that had happened. “Then summoning him, his lord said to him, `You wicked slave, I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. `Should you not also have had mercy on your fellow slave, in the same way that I had mercy on you?’ “And his lord, moved with anger, handed him over to the torturers until he should repay all that was owed him. “My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.”

We need to reach the kind of people, who may not qualify to be the bait for milking $$$. For, there are many doing so for that very reason. People are multiplying faster than the Good News is delivered. Also, Carl Henry says, it is not a good news if it is not delivered in time. As you can see the task is overwhelming. This goes to show that we need to organize ourselves as One so that we can think as one and do the Great Commission without redundancy. We need both air support (macroscopic evangelists) and ground troops (door-to-door ministers) if we are going to win in this battle for the souls of men. Please consider joining, supporting or sending someone to Agape TiE® Ecumenical Tech-Mission to form dBride.ME — a GOD’S-WILL-DRIVEN church, 24×7.

Jesus ordained that a marriage is between one wife and one husband (Matthew 19:5-6). But today i believe that the Holy Spirit is ordaining Polygyny in view of the following:

The Tower of Babel, which Nimrod tried to get all people to build was made of bricks. Whereas God told us to build houses made of stones. The difference between stones and bricks is that stones are unique in shape while bricks are similar.

For one thing, not all marriages are similar like bricks. Would it be outlandish to suggest that a viable solution for high rates of divorces, female infanticide, same sex marriages and dowry deaths is: legalizing polygyny?

Not only are we unique as individuals like stones but we ought to be in unique kinds of marriages in view of our individual uniqueness. Only then that family entity will no longer be a brick but will have all the uniqueness of a stone.

From my perspective of the matrimonial market, specifically in reference to the supply & demand  for brides and bridegrooms, i am led to believe that if we legalize polygyny (not polygamy) most societal problems will be solved including the high rate of divorces, usurpation, dowry deaths, homosexuality (lack of ordained sexuality) and female infanticide, to name a few. Since the Church apparently did not have a valid mandate from God for polygyny, it struck it down and incriminated anyone found espousing it.

In support of my argument, Jacob had two wives. And the Bible calls God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. “Woman is the glory of man” (1 Corinthians 11:7b). “There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory” (1 Corinthians 15:41).

The Church originally interpreted 1 Cor 15:41 saying that the sun is like the husband, the moon the wife, and the stars the children. But as we know today, the earth is not the center of the solar system let alone the center of the universe. Perhaps it is the home of man but it stops there. It is not the home of the Son of God. The sun should be viewed as being analogous to a true home for Christians because we are in the world but not of it. Then planets become wives and their satellites become children.

But women really want their husbands to be totally devoted to them. Therefore, upright husbands, who love the wife of their youth, will choose to NOT avail the provisions of the law to have more than one wife.

Whether this sort of order will turn out to be oppressive on righteous women is something Muslim women, who lived in a generally accepted polygyny culture, can tell us.

The law can also set a quota for polyandry in order to keep oppression low.

India stands at the crossroads of so-called, ‘modernity’ and ‘fundamentalism.’ The spirit of the government of India was willing to contribute to the debate as we try and offer solutions to problems that plague India in particular. Not equality but the question of ‘dignity’ of woman weighs in favor of a marriage between one wife and one husband (Matthew 19:5-6). When we raise the status of woman, automatically the demand for brides too will rise. But their role must remain that of second chair leadership lest she loose her dignity with usurpation and be relegated to second class citizenship leave alone second chair leadership. Let her know her role in life just as men know their role as being NOT God (1Cor11:3). As for a solution to the problem of rising usurpation plaguing the west, let us not wait until God comes down with His iron fist and destroy this lump of clay earth.

Shooting for woman’s emancipation in the same vein of emancipating the black race, is going overboard. It is being merely fashionable. “The creation itself does not lend itself to equality.” Therefore, egalitarianism/equality-bandwagon is going against the grain of creation and its creator! If the creator must support Hillary Clinton in governing, then the United States must cede its sovereignty to Agape Kingdom or the like, in order that the position she takes will remain a second chair leadership position. Other nations too, hopefully, will follow suit.

Let the women of God give a fitting rebuttal to the defiant woman, who is taking the whole world to a demise.

Rosemarie Buxton of Episcopal Divinity School wrote in response to Professor Stephen Prothero’s book (God is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions That Run the World–and Why Their Differences Matter) and his article (Separate Truths) in the Boston Globe on April 25, 2010:

According to Karen Armstrong, the difficulties arise when one religion sets itself apart as the one religion and chooses to do anything to defend itself, a sin that many religions have been guilty of throughout history.

Coming from the pen of a Christian Divinity school graduate, i am very disappointed at the above statement.

Mankind is but one-kind. And so is creation-kind. Can an offspring say that he has two fathers or two mothers? That is not only vulgar but also foolish. That there is but one God, the creator of heaven and earth transcends any sort of debate.

Now, there are a lot of injustices that are going unpunished by the government(s). The socio, economic, political, environmental crisis we are seeing today is testimony of that fact. Justice is not being meted out to all. That is why the Bible stresses on the Day of Judgment, when the Lord of lords and the King of kings will be seated on the throne and render justice to the nations.

Now for this justice to be rendered with equity, there needs to be one law that is self-evident and transcends all other laws. This Law is the Law of Agape Love that Jesus kept and “exceeded the righteousness of the Pharisees” of His time and went and sat at the right hand side of God to judge the world.

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for His friends” ~ Lord Jesus Christ (John 15:13). How much more “self-evident” and transcendent can you get.

To say that there are other ways or back-doors to God is an affront to the living God who is Jehovah Jireh–the One who provided this Way–an excruciating death for His son the Lord Jesus Christ only in order to fulfill the transcendent AND self-evident truth in John 15:13 as stated above. If there were indeed other ways then God was a stupid fool to take His son through this excruciating death. So excruciating that the Lord’s sweat turned into blood well before He was going to be crucified because He knew what kind of pain He will have to suffer.

So, i believe, after the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Bhagavad Gita’s reference namely:

“As the different streams having their sources in different places all mingle their water in the sea, so, O Lord, the different paths which men take, through different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to Thee!”

and

“Whosoever comes to Me, through whatsoever form, I reach him; all men are struggling through paths that in the end lead to Me.”

apply to the Lord Jesus Christ Himself–all streams have to end up with Him. In other words, at the Judgment Seat of Christ!

Walk the Talk!

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: , , , ,

Don’t agree!

We not only have the Great Commission to be the Light (Talk) of the world, but we also have the Kingdom-Now mandate to be the Salt (Walk) of the earth.

So let your Light (Talk/Gospel) so shine before men that they see your Good-deeds (Walk) and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

In other words, we must WALK THE TALK!

Agape TiE is all about that. To give love where love is due and respect where respect is due and thus lift up a testimony which the whole world will behold, believe and be saved (John 17:23; John 3:14-15).

John MacArthur says:

“We are kept until that hour and we are kept by an enduring faith sustained by the intercessory work of Jesus Christ who prays that we will be protected from anything that would assault that faith, whether it be the flesh or the world or Satan himself.”

Simply NOT true!

Read the context of 1 Thess 5:23. We are first asked not to quench (put out) the Holy Spirit by despising prophetic utterances. This would happen when we grieve the Holy Spirit to the point when the conscience becomes “seared as with a hot iron.” It is dead and unable to respond to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. It is then we have reached the point of no return.

Secondly, he talks about the gift of faith, which indeed it is (Romans 12:3). However everything we have is a gift. It is only when we bring it at the disposal of the Lord that it becomes useful for the Master’s use. The faith he has given must be given back to Him; that is, it must be mustered! Otherwise Jesus would have no reason to say to His disciples, “O ye of little faith.” They sowed only a little.

Thirdly, many are called but few are chosen. They are chosen only after God sees entire sanctification potential in them and then are kept [in Christ] until the Day of the Lord Jesus Christ! (1 Thessalonians 5:23)

Notice that the Lord’s prayer is that God sanctify us by His WORD (John 17:17) and not by some sort of a supernatural power!

Jesus, through the Holy Spirit/Word, on His part is able but on our part we have to yield to His promptings as well. “For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but those who obey the Law who will be declared righteous” (Romans 2:13). “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on a rock” (Matthew 7:24). “…Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves” (James 1:22).

Even the demons hear, believe and shudder. In other words, the only qualification one can get by merely believing, is a Demonship. The concept is further illustrated with a man who walked a tight rope across the Niagara falls. All were clapping their hands. There was one man in the front who was clapping all the more. The walker asked that man, “do you think i can take another person with me on my shoulders across?” The man said, “Yes, Yes, Yes!” When the walker asked him to join him across, he was dismayed and ran away. That is the difference between trust and belief.

God is able to take you across but you have to trust Him with your life!

More on this subject @ http://Skyfeast.org or for a shorter read: http://calebmotupalli.me/2010/01/13/calvinism-debunked/

This calls for an amendment of or rather the scrapping of the Westminister Confession of Faith.

Liberal Theology

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: , , , , ,

John Piper quoted S.H. on Facebook as saying:

Liberalism: Make the Gospel acceptable to the world rather than showing the world it is unintelligible without the Gospel.

Is calling the Gospel, Good News, liberalism? Is translating scripture from Greek to English, liberalism? Is making Christ relevant, liberalism? You know where i am going with this train of thought. I am sure for a conceited legalist (neo-Pharisee), liberalism, as defined, is not acceptable. Read the parables and know that our Lord made the Good News digestible. The very fact that He became incarnate, is liberalism! For someone who harps on grace, i am ashamed. A synonym for liberalism is grace for heaven’s sake. Liberalism is not about compromising. It is about being gracious to your neighbor. Thank you.

Leaving people in their sin because it is less uncomfortable than telling them the truth.

However, Brett Coffrini:

Caleb, you are using an older definition of liberalism. The modern kind denies Scripture as the inspired, inerrant, all sufficient Word of God. In his classic book, Christianity and Liberalism, J Greshan Machen argued that liberalism isn’t just another form of Christianity, but an entirely different religion.

“A liberal is someone who will fight for your right to agree w/ them!” — Ronald Reagan

“Exegetical imprecision is the mother of liberal theology.” –John Piper; Brothers, We Are Not Professionals

Brian Brobeck:

The gospel will never be acceptable to the world, that is why christ was crucified. When He said drink my blood and eat my flesh the multitudes left.

Yes. For those who stuck with Him till the end, he said: This (bread) is my body and this (wine) is my blood and made it palatable for them.

Brett, let us redefine what a liberal is. Why stay on the fringes of legalism?! If there is any liberal in the world, we should be it.

Let us not leave the sinner in his sins. As JulieBeth said it, let us become uncomfortable until we make the truth palatable; in other words, acceptable!

Unity in Diversity!

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli Tags: ,

Looks like American Christianity is realizing that being diverse for the sake of diversity is not after all in God’s best interests. Lets all look for that Biblical culture that sets us all as citizens of the kingdom of God. Remember, we are in the world but not of it. So should be our culture. It is a unity in diversity but not diversity for diversity’s sake!

China made Toy GunThere is an insidious attack by the Chinese–it appears–to subvert India and other non-communist states. A case in point is how the Chinese toy industry is used to sabotage Gun-Control that states like India enjoy today.

I was shocked when i saw this gun in my son’s possession. He bought it by himself in a nearby shop for INR 30 (USD 0.75). It turned out to be a toy gun. I had to explain to him at length how when someone sees this in his possession, they might act in self defense and hurt him. My blood brother Sudeep Motupalli Rao from San Francisco was also with us on a conference to tell him that it is a slippery slope to the real thing. Very soon he would want to use the real guns to get back at someone he does not like. He told him how guns are designed to not merely hurt a person but to kill a life which has survived fifty, seventy years through the world system.

In the United States, it is mandated now to make Toy Guns with a color to reveal that they are toys.  But China, he said, has other ways that are also “insidious.” For instance, jewelery used to contain Lead but when the government banned import of Lead based Jewelery, China is exporting Jewelery that contains Cadmium, which is more dangerous than Lead. Sudeep holds a Masters in Chemical Engineering with a PhD in Environmental Engineering.

Coupled with this insidious attack through the toy industry, China through the Olympic committee  gave India the only Gold medal. Now every kid should imitate Bindra–the sole model for them.

Whether China is deliberately doing this sort of thing is everyone’s guess. China could very well be a puppet in the hands of a much greater force, namely the MNCs. What remains however, is that we are battling against principalities in the heavenly realms to safeguard our neighborhoods.

The first world where most of the MNCs have their headquarters know very well that it is the Standard of Living that determines free flow of human capital back to its roots. They saw the devaluation of the American Dream in the World Trade Center attack. They now want to rub off the same thing on other countries as well especially on vulnerable countries like India where the person who has a voice at all, wears merely handloom clothing, which in their eyes lacks sophistication and therefore an easy target. Khadi served to make India self-reliant during freedom struggle. But in the global economy which is dominated by services, India has to show its clout. I recommend Sherwanis for the Indian political figures and IFS officers rather than the demoted handloom dress code.

Pope Benedict XVI’s encyclical Deus Caritas Est (“God is Love”) of 2006 teaches that justice is the defining concern of the state and the central concern of politics, and not of the church, which has charity as its central social concern. The laity has the specific responsibility of pursuing social justice in civil society. The church’s active role in social justice should be to inform the debate, using reason and natural law, and also by providing moral and spiritual formation for those involved in politics. (Source: Social Justice, Wikipedia)

Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California quotes Martin Luther King Jr. as saying: “The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state.”

I respectfully disagree with them. First off, because Justice (which is attributed to the state) and Charity (which is attributed to the Church) are poles apart. Therefore, in order that there be no compromise on either (justice or love), both should operate in a single system—the ChurchState. In other words, in a single Court officiated by a single Judge, where there will always be a strong tension between both the Defender (charitable) and the Prosecutor (condemning). A church that settles for polemics remains a babe.

This very Court, in the absence of a neutral Judge (being that he is nominated and impeached at will by the state today), is in the hands of Media private enterprise, which can sway any side with money power. We should not give ourselves into such a resignation.

Not a mere layman’s perspective!

The following two presentations by a university professor help us understand the reasons for the status quo prevailing in the world-at-large.

The question to ask ourselves is: Are there demerits in the status quo that we can do away with while designing Christocracy?

In the globalized society of Christocracy a homestead program similar to the one that was in the United States may be implemented as a recompense or refuge to flee to for those in the laboring nations of the global economy. Workers can begin to work in leisure as it was in the Garden of Eden and actually enjoy the products, services, farms and the households they build.

With e-governance, Christocracy can obviate the need for a bloated public sector or a huge government bureaucracy, while all the time obtaining global synergistic economy and all the other benefits that come with it.

As to the question: Who governs in Christocracy?
Answer: The organized Bride–Remnant Overcomers (the Chosen) who have a vital relationship with the indwelling Christ.

Dear one in Christ,

Greetings in the precious name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, Savior and Example!

I was reading the following reviews:

  • The Laissez-faire policy from Encyclopedia Britannica
  • Paternalism from Encyclopedia Britannica
  • Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism from SparkNotes.com
  • The Wealth of Nations from Encyclopedia Britannica

And was led to the following conclusion. (Inline text from the Encyclopedia and the Notes.)

‘Adam Smith saw humans as creatures driven by passions and at the same time self-regulated by their ability to reason and–no less important–by their capacity for sympathy. This duality serves both to pit individuals against one another and to provide them with the rational and moral faculties to create institutions by which the internecine struggle can be mitigated and even turned to the common good.’

‘The source of the ability to form moral judgments, including judgments on one’s own behavior, in the face of the seemingly overriding passions for self-preservation and self-interest is the presence within each of us of an “inner man” who plays the role of the “impartial spectator,” approving or condemning our own and others’ actions with a voice impossible to disregard. Self-seeking men, he concluded and wrote, are often “led by an invisible hand . . . without knowing it, without intending it, [to] advance the interest of the society.”‘

The first book by Adam Smith (The theory of Moral Sentiments) ‘can also be seen as an explanation of the manner in which individuals are socialized (won) to become the market-oriented and class-bound actors that set the economic system into motion.’

The ideology of classical capitalism expressed in his second book, Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776), recommended leaving economic decisions to the free play of self-regulating market forces, which was latter to be called the Laissez-faire policy.

‘By explaining that wages and rents and profits (the constituent parts of the costs of production) are themselves subject to this same discipline of self-interest and competition, Smith not only provided an ultimate rationale for these “natural” prices but also revealed an underlying [supposed] orderliness in the distribution of income itself among workers, whose recompense was their wages; landlords, whose income was their rents; and manufacturers, whose reward was their profits.’
(We will see later on whether this distribution is really in order or not.)

‘Max Weber argues that the modern spirit of capitalism sees profit as an end in itself, and pursuing profit as virtuous. Weber’s goal was to understand the source of this spirit. He turns to Protestantism for a potential explanation. Protestantism, [he says], offers a concept of the worldly “calling,” and gives worldly activity a religious character. While important, this alone cannot explain the need to pursue profit. One branch of Protestantism, Calvinism, does provide this explanation. Calvinists believe in predestination–that God has already determined who is saved and damned. As Calvinism developed, a deep psychological need for clues about whether one was actually saved arose, and Calvinists looked to their success in worldly activity for those clues. Thus, they came to value profit and material success as signs of God’s favor.’ It did not occur to them that notwithstanding predestination, which is itself a false doctrine, this kind of attitude is intrinsically conceited!

Christ’s teachings were on the contrary just the opposite. Matthew 16:24–Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” Matthew 16:25–“For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.” Matthew 6:19,20–“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Matthew 19:21–Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

What we witness today in the capitalistic world is self-interest, self-preservation and frugality in giving. People have willy-nilly justified today’s system of business, law & order and government to suite their own selfish ends. They have accumulated false teachers to suite what their itching ears want to hear. Selfishness has become virtuous.

‘Once capitalism emerged, the Protestant values were no longer necessary, and their ethic took on a life of its own. We are now locked into the spirit of capitalism’ because it has become useful to meet our selfish ends.

The biblical concept of the “inner-man” that Smith applies to society by incorporating legal institutions is good in essence. But in the context of global economics, there is little application. The governments play into their own country’s capitalists. The International Court of Justice has to take to task governments like the United States and the United Kingdom, which follow unethical immigration policies. They essentially rob the wealth of poor nations.

Spencer Johnson in his book “One Minute Manager” speaks about the 20/80 principle. In applying the principle to the economics of human resources of a nation, 20 percent of the population do 80 percent of the work. Now we all know that America is the “melting pot” of the world. So if the body of a nation is brain-drained or virtually beheaded, then 80 percent of the work of that nation is left undone. Whereas the melting pot has 80 percent more of its work complete, yet having to deal with only 20 percent. So the macroeconomics, if i am not mistaken, is the multiplication of two integrals. This is what i believe, among other things, has contributed to the boom in the United States over the years. Because people there were superior, life became more and more superior and therefore attractive to the immigrant. But America is a democracy and it is true even in a democracy there is a downside. As Lenin puts it, “A democracy is a state which recognizes the subjecting of the minority to the majority.” So the immigrant comes under the subjection of the majority white, macroscopically as well as microscopically. Macroscopically, because his class of immigrants are not white. Microscopically, because he is portrayed as an alien to the majority. All that they (majority) have to do now is manage the brain by feeding it with what it needs–a salary.

‘Smith’s system of “natural liberty,” he is careful to point out, accords with the best interests of all but will not be put into practice if government is entrusted to, or heeds, “the mean rapacity (greed), the monopolizing spirit of merchants and manufacturers, who neither are, nor ought to be, the rulers of mankind.”‘ Smith’s fears have indeed materialized. Today the governments of the USA and UK are entrusted to, or heed the interests of the capitalists when it comes to foreign policy. The capitalists twist the arm of the government to import labor at actually the expense of the foreign nations or they threaten to outsource. ‘”Civil government,” Smith wrote, “so far as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor, or of those who have some property against those who have none at all.”‘ What the government is trying to secure here is the human capital for the capitalists and at the same time to keep the ratio between the whites and the minorities high within U.S.A.

Only last week we heard the Census Bureau predict an America of greater racial diversity by 2050. How did they jump into that conclusion without conceiving a strategy of immigration policy that will stem outsourcing. The idea is to keep the minority population as diverse as possible to pit one minor against the other and thus get the upper hand being a white. So import the cream, that is, brain drain China and India because it can’t afford to take too many from there due to the size of those nations. And then import Hispanics and Africans for low income jobs in equal number to pit them against the Chinese and the Indians when it comes to voting because America being a democracy, everyone has equal weight.

Through 2003-2004 we have been watching in Lou Dobb’s Report on CNN, the Exporting of America as he calls it. Corporate America is outsourcing service jobs at an alarming rate to cheap foreign labor markets like India. It is also outsourcing manufacturing jobs to China at an alarming rate. Together of which has increased the Trade Deficit of the United States by trillions of dollars.

In this global scenario there is no question that large concentrations of workers–men, women, and children–are crowded together in oppressive physical conditions and working long hours for low pay just so that an American capitalist can take a fling at his fantasy or vanity. One in ten people in America itself are now suffering from clinical depression. ‘Smith wrote with discernment about the intellectual degradation of the worker in a society in which the division of labor has proceeded very far; for by comparison with the alert intelligence of the husbandman (farmer), the specialized worker “generally becomes as stupid and ignorant as it is possible for a human being to become.”‘ The idea is to make them so specialized and stupid that they do not realize how valuable they are in the overall scheme of things. ‘In the past two centuries managers of industry have taken, in general, two broadly different positions regarding management’s social responsibilities.’ But these have been limited to the society that they operate in, which is the American neighborhood without taking into consideration the contribution of foreign neighborhoods, which send high caliber immigrants to American neighborhoods each year.

Laissez-faire with Protestant Ethic:

‘In this view the owner or manager has no responsibility for the welfare of the workers outside the immediate plant situation. As i have said earlier, a person’s station in life is a reflection of his intrinsic merit [or rather predestination] in the eyes of God; the wages and other labor costs incurred by the firm are the result of competitive market conditions. In this view, then, the owner’s or manager’s responsibility to his employees begins and ends with operating the firm in such an efficient manner that it is able to meet competition in the marketplace, and, if all business managers similarly followed a policy of intelligent self-interest, the broad social interests of society would be better served than by any other policy. The executive most inclined toward a laissez-faire viewpoint is likely to concede that there are some social problems that are not resolved by private initiative in pursuit of enlightened self-interest. However, there are [owners]/ managers with this view of the world who tend to take a defensive position regarding the responsibilities of their firm beyond the gates of the plant. They [nevertheless] recognize that popular opinion and government policies and programs may require them to take on activities not dictated by immediate material interest, but the tendency is to do what has to be done to keep out of trouble with the outside world and nothing more.’ This policy is well suited for the self-interest of a state, which has immigrants at its shores all the time.

Paternalism:

‘The other stance begins with the assumption that management has a social responsibility to the communities in which its plants are located. If one states the situation in this general way, hardly a management spokesperson today would deny this social responsibility.’ The Ford Motor Company is a case in point, which announced last week that all dividends from stock owned by the Chief stock holder will be distributed among the employees. ‘Yet, when one gets beyond rhetoric, one finds a wide variety of views as to what actions–if any–management should take. In assessing the present scene, one might do well to examine the historical evolution of conceptions of management’s social responsibilities.’

‘The rise of unions in the mass production industries of the United States in the 1930s helped to persuade executives that a paternalistic approach to labor and community relations was no longer feasible. Extensions of management’s social responsibilities were now achieved through collective bargaining. Still, these broader benefits, such as pensions and health insurance, were limited to the workers and their immediate families. There was a tendency to assume that any responsibility for the welfare of the community as a whole should be assumed by government.’

Many corporations today have several billions of dollars in turnover. CEO’s get paid in millions each year to maintain the status quo. The orderliness of the distribution of income between the landlords, manufacturers and laborers cannot be right because tests can prove that there is only little disparity–if any–between the IQ of an owner/manager and an average worker. Even if exponential reward structure were made on the populace, it would still be inconsistent with the status quo.

No doubt the United States of America was originally white. Or was it? At least everyone assumes that and government policies are tailored with that assumption. But most of the big corporations are global players today. Therefore they have global societal responsibility. The global watchdog, the United Nations, which is really a puppet of the developed world, has taken a silent stance at such matters because it has no authority given it. It follows the same policy of “allow-to-do” (laissez-faire).

Thus developed nations, through their capitalist corporations, exploit–if not behead–developing nations because people and capital is induced to move to those areas.

This is nothing but global anarchy for the above reasons mentioned. The irreparable damage is to the tune of a multiplication of two integrals for each nation in question, which I am sure, will be in zillions of dollars.

Noah did not see the great flood that was to come. It was faith alone that enabled him to build the Ark. Today, we do not see Christ face to face. So it will be faith alone that will move us to prepare a Throne (that is, one body culminated at the neck) for Him (the Head), for the great judgment day and the millennial rule. (For details, see the vision that sprang from out of a revelation about a sharp two-edged Sword: Agape TiE ® / Totally Integrated Environment®.)

Let us pray!

No sooner did i think of writing here the model prayer that our Lord had taught us and went to look for the exact words in my Bible (NASB Life Application Study Bible) from the Gospel according to Matthew, thus said the LORD (my eyes fell on): Matthew 21:42-44; 12:18-21. This took place at around 7:20 PM on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 according to the Gregorian calendar, on the island of St. Christopher in the basement apartment that we are renting from Rona & Lee Graham which is on Pelican Drive in Bird Rock.

Carefully,
(Thus says the Lord: Matthew 23:16-22)
