'when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn...'

Proverbs, chapter 29 of the King James Bible tells us:

“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn...Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance... The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it... In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice... The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it... Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath. If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest...The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul... If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked... The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever...When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall... Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he... Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him... An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression... A man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit... Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not... The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe... Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the LORD... An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.”

As Christians we must adhere to the Word of our LORD and choose only those men that meet Biblical standards for leaders... Anyone less is not Biblically qualified to hold the office of civil magistrate.

Please reflect upon this testimony from the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America and see that it is a good rule for you to follow when choosing men for leadership:

When participating in political elections, the Christian should support and vote only for such men as are publicly committed to scriptural principles of civil government. Should the Christian seek civil office by political election, he must openly inform those whose support he seeks of his adherence to Christian principles of civil government.
[1 Chron. 16:31; 2 Cor. 6:14-18; 2 Chron. 19:6-7; Dan. 2:48; Eph. 4:25. RPCNA WCF XXIII, Testimony, paragraph #29, p. A-77]

Now dear friends, let us rejoice in the instruction of our LORD and turn from our disobedience in this matter... Perhaps the good LORD will see our repentance, listen to our cries for help and give us godly men to govern over us. Amen.

A discerning look at 'Biblical Patriarchy' and those who abuse it

By Angela Wittman While much of what Doug Phillips teaches regarding Patriarchy sounds biblical, because of the lack of practical application, his teachings are often taken to extremes. Sometimes, men just hear his vision of men always “leading,” and they become domineering and demanding, causing undue stress on the wife. I know of one family that divorced precisely because of hearing this teaching and not understanding what it really should be. Sometimes, men will try to emulate what they see in Doug Phillips, and start requiring their families to have all the same rules as the Phillips. Unfortunately, if there are no personal convictions behind the rules, they soon become extremely oppressive and smother the family. Some men just have no clue about how to “lead” their families; they just know that it’s being constantly preached at them from the pulpit. Having come from a home without a godly leader, these men need lots of practical examples. (Taken from: Doug Phillips’ Kangaroo Court

'Of Saving Faith'

The Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter XIV Of Saving Faith I. The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, [1] is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, [2] and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word, [3] by which also, and by the administration of the sacraments, and prayer, it is increased and strengthened. [4] II. By this faith, a Christian believes to be true whatsoever is revealed in the Word, for the authority of God himself speaking therein; [5] and acts differently upon that which each particular passage thereof contains; yielding obedience to the commands, [6] trembling at the threatenings, [7] and embracing the promises of God for this life, and that which is to come. [8] But the principal acts of saving faith are accepting, receiving, and resting upon Christ alone for justification, sanctification, and eternal life, by virtue of the covenant of grace. [9] III. This faith is differ

A discerning look at Ted Weiland's "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective"

By Angela Wittman I believe I have found within the Scriptures the key to what made America great, and this key can restore her to her former greatness. - Ted Weiland, ( Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution; The Christian Perspective , A couple of years ago Ted Weiland contacted me and asked if he might send me his primer on  Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective . After receiving and reviewing the primer, I decided to toss it in the trash due to the concern that Mr. Weiland was missing a foundational point - Biblical covenanting.  And after recently reviewing his work in greater detail, I believe the reformed and theonomic community should be cautious about Mr. Weiland's book and his beliefs. Due to some glaring "red flags" I encountered while researching Mr. Weiland, I've decided to write this warning and state my concerns. First of a
