The controlling theme of our Podcasts is that we are all children of God who is no respecter of persons. We are all created equal by God. The primary purpose of a democratic republic is to protect that equality, making all laws equal to all citizens all the time. We need to return to the vision of our forefathers that "certain truths are self evident, that among our inalienable rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If we are to survive as a republic, we must hold firm to th ...

Ephesians 6:10-18 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritua…
 
The First Epistle General of John Chapter 1 1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and…
 
The Bill of Rights Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Amendment II A well-regulated militia, being n…
 
1 Corinthians 13 1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. 3 And though…
 
Desire should not be confused with want or hope or dreams or goals or plans arrived at by reasoning. Though it is possible that desire motivates those ambitions, it is not through necessity. Many forces affect our goals. However, we must look at desire, not always as an out-of-control passion, as a lustful glance, or even as a long-awaited goal. To…
 
Whether you accept the Ten Commandments written by the finger of God on Mount Sinai on stone tablets or see them merely as a code of conduct generated by an ancient culture with thousands of years of tragic history, they are important to us because they are the foundation of our own democratic principles. All the Ten Commandments are necessary for …
 
In 1513 Nicolo Machiavelli wrote The Prince, otherwise known as The Little Book, a diabolical manual for gaining power and holding power mercilessly. I take my quotes from The Prince, translated by W.K. Marriott. An astute student of history, of scripture, of human nature, and of the rise and fall of governments, Machiavelli, putting conscience asi…
 
A democracy can only survive where the people have faith—faith in self, faith in others, and faith in God. Faith, fear’s greatest enemy, grows from righteous desires. As fog dissolves under the heat of the rising sun, fear dissolves under the rise of burning faith. Faith is the light that removes darkness from looming clouds and draws our eyes from…
 
James 3:1-18 1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. 2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. 4 Behol…
 
One of the greatest gifts of the atonement is the institution of the principle of repentance, but what is repentance without forgiveness? Hate binds us to our enemies; forgiveness undoes the power Satan has over us. Though only Christ can forgive sins, only we can forgive ourselves or our enemies. Even in forgiveness agency is preserved. When Chris…
 
With our hatred of thieves, one would think that finally we have a commandment that we can all agree on. Can you imagine how pleasant life would be living in a society without thieves? No more locks. No more passwords. No more iron bars. No more lies. No more security cameras. No more gouging. No more bribes. No more suspicions. No more ‘No Trespas…
 
“Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men.” (Isaiah 29:13) We have a tendency to worship that we may be seen of men. James tells us, “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:8) True d…
 
There are devastating social consequences for a nation that advertises and promotes sexual promiscuity and the lowering of absolute moral standards. If society does not have the courage to address licentiousness, then it must have the wisdom to address the consequences. The Ten Commandments are the law of liberty and the absolute moral standards es…
 
To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, the price of freedom is eternal vigilance in seeking truth and in keeping the commandments of God. There is no shortcut to freedom. Mortality is a brief stop on an eternal journey, not the final destination. Everything we do here affects our immortality, our eternal life, and our everlasting future.…
 
Because of the grace of God, all mankind will be resurrected, receive a perfect immortal body, and stand before the judgment bar of God. Immortality for all man is automatic through the gift of grace. However, because of the conditions imposed upon the law of mercy by the law of justice, eternal life with God must be a choice; therefore, another pa…
 
Acts 17:21-28 21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.) 22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar…
 
Managing One’s Spiritual Environment To understand America, to understand the vision of our founding fathers, who were inspired by God to write our Constitution and to found this nation, we must understand the inalienable rights of man and the obligations of freewill. God, not man, not government, created all men equal. God gave us inalienable righ…
 
Because of Christ the price for our sins has already been paid. All we must do to fall under the law of mercy is to keep the commandments of Christ. In everything we must consider agency. If we obey a law, we will receive the blessings of that law; if we disobey a law, and do not repent, we will receive the punishment fixed by the law. There is a f…
 
God loves his children of every race and nation of the world. Being children of God, we are all born with the spirit of Christ. He endows all of us with his gifts and blessings. No nation, religion, race, or culture has a corner on goodness or virtue. We all have the potential to develop the virtues of Christ.…
 
“Honour Thy Father and thy Mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God Giveth thee.” “Father” and “Mother,” “Husband” and “Wife,” “Man” and “Woman” are sacred titles, whose holy office was ordained in the very beginning. There is almost no language that can describe the feelings of a child to his mother or a mother to her…
 
"...whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." (Philippians 4:8)Ronald
 
Everything on earth is orchestrated that we may also ultimately have a fullness of truth and light. We are choosing now which path we will take—the path to a fullness of truth and light or the path to darkness and captivity. It is a continuum. On the high end, the celestial glory, compared to the sun, where the Father and the Son dwell, is all ligh…
 
To have freedom in the mortal world, one must obey conditional laws. The more laws one obeys, the greater the truth and light. The greater the truth and light, the greater the freedom. Growth in light continues beyond this life and into the eternities. What we learn here will aid our spirits there. The more we learn here, the greater the advantage …
 
Christ suffered the demands of the law of justice so that we don’t have to suffer the pains of hell. Because of the law of justice, we have hell. Because of the law of mercy, man does not have to go to hell if he obeys the laws of Christ. For those who do go to hell, man’s term in hell is fixed to fit the sin. The grace of Christ saves us from our …
 
The single greatest quest we can make on this earth is the quest for truth. The only way we can be kept from evil is by seeking truth. To understand truth, we must understand law. By keeping the commandments of God, we are on the path of truth. Searching for truth is a spiritual journey as much as a temporal journey that we all must take alone.…
 
Neither heaven nor paradise could give us the opposition necessary for eternal growth. That is why it was necessary for us to leave paradise and come to rocky earth. That is why it was necessary for Adam and Eve to leave the Garden of Eden. Fallen earth alone, with its opposition, could afford us freewill, freedom, agency, liberty, experience, self…
 
Temporal laws, which govern our physical body and the mechanics of this changing world, give us knowledge to discern between good, better, and best, or their opposites. Spiritual laws, which govern our spirits as well as all other spiritual elements of this dual world, give us wisdom to discern between good and evil. Spiritual law comprehends the e…
 
A free nation that wishes to survive cannot be silent on the issue of adultery or sexual licentiousness. If society doesn’t have the courage to address licentiousness, then it must have the wisdom to address the consequences. We protect people against fast foods, preservatives, and saccharine. We put labels on cigarette packs, pickle jars, and tapi…
 
The sabbath day is a kind of baptism where we put aside all worldly things. Notice the key words of the Fourth Commandment: holy, sabbath, rested, blessed, and hallowed. The sabbath is a kind of renewal, a benediction, a sanctification. It is also on the sabbath day where Christians partake of the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. The sacrament is a …
 
Taking the Lord’s name in vain is a form of mocking God and trampling God under one’s feet. The worst sins begin in very small steps. “Love the Lord Thy God with All Thy Heart” is the first great commandment. You cannot take the Lord’s name in vain and be reverent at the same time. Showing irreverence toward God who freely sacrificed his life for u…
 
Christ could not save us in heaven until he first suffered for us on earth, suffering as we suffer, feeling our sicknesses, our sorrows, our pains, our fears, and even our sins. He satisfied the law of justice through his perfection. Always perfect, he saved us through his works. It wasn’t his perfection in paradise that saved us; it was the perfec…
 
“The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing upon the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble, or prohibiting the petitioning of a governmental redress …
 
Science rejects God; therefore, science dismisses intelligent design. Without intelligent design, science can only defer to accident, coincidence, or what Stephen W. Hawking refers to as “serendipity of circumstances.” The biggest fallacy of science is that something can come from nothing. From that false assumption many errors in science are made.…
 
Through our works, we demonstrate our faith in Christ. Through our faith, we have claim to grace; and through grace we are saved. All three, faith, works, and grace, are necessary, but none of itself is sufficient or agency would be lost, and the two great commandments unsatisfied. Agency is always preserved. At the heart of all laws look for the l…
 
We must stand united behind the Constitution and Bill of Rights; freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, and freedom to believe, to preach, and to practice the absolute values that made this country great. Unless we reverse our course and return to the vision of our Founding Fathers, I fear for our futur…
 
Only in the kingdom of God can there be immortality and eternal life because only there is law complete and unopposed. In the kingdom of God there can be no sin, no entropy, no death, no divagation, no conditions, no change, no evil, no chaos, no disorder, and no variation. In God’s kingdom order is perfect. To understand that, however, we had to c…
 
Truth is not in just one place. Truth is in everything touched by Christ. Truth is found in part in every religion, every nation, and every culture. God will give us all the truths we are willing to accept. The wicked filter out the truth and receive only that which is pleasing to the ear.Ronald
 
Earth is the mortal manifestation of life that has no beginning and will have no end. We are each unique, with unique gifts, personalities, talents, desires, etc. God created us equal in potential and then organized laws to enable that potential through our agency. All children of God receive gifts of the spirit: “4 Now there are diversities of gif…
 
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11: 28-30)Ronald
 
Everything is subject to what Shakespeare calls “the corrupted currents of this world.” We associate conscience, not with moral absolutes, but with our evolving perceptions of good and evil. Conscience is inextricably connected to agency. We have the agency to redirect our conscience. If we trade the absolute moral values of God for the relative et…
 
Conscience is a gift of God to bring us to repentance; however, to preserve agency, conscience can only discern between our perceptions of good and evil. On earth we are burdened with guilt, harassed by doubt and fear, and subject to temptation. We suffer the wounds of a thousand imagined hurts, and wrestle with conscience. For agency to exist, we …
 
Satan, not man, gives unity to the collusions of calloused man. Satan, the father of contention, though he adapts his strategies, never changes his plans. He follows patterns successfully practiced from the beginning of time. Satan has a single plan—to destroy life, liberty, and happiness. Most, if not all evil doers, only think they are in charge,…
 
A revolution appears to be a revolution because everyone is shouting what everyone else wants to hear, each seeking the approval of the other while pretending to lead. We live in an age of self-serving heroes, each shout creating a larger shout so that one hero can be heard above the other. Meanwhile there is only thundering confusion.…
 
Truth and law are equivalent. The moment we quit seeking truth; the moment we quit holding fast to truth; the moment we see truth as irrelevant, whether in temporal law or spiritual law, and exalt man’s opinion above God’s laws; the moment we confuse darkness for light—that is the moment we slide back into captivity.…
 
Whether you accept the Ten Commandments written by the finger of God on Mount Sinai on stone tablets or see them merely as a code of conduct generated by an ancient culture with thousands of years of tragic history, they are important to us because they are the foundation of own democratic principles. Without the Ten Commandments as the foundation …
 
3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of t…
 
Christ didn’t have to suffer for his sins because he had none. Christ did not even have to suffer for our sins. He could have left us in the grip of the unmerciful law of justice. His suffering and death for us can only be attributed to two things— (1) His pure love for the Father, which is illustrated by his obedience. Everything Christ did, he di…
 
We are sons and daughters of celestial royalty. We left the Kingdom of God, our former home, because we wanted a physical body after the likeness of God and in the form and shape of our spirits, which are also made in the image of God. We wanted to live under temporal laws that we may have freedom. We wanted to live under spiritual laws that we may…
