‘New’ is man’s stamp of approval, not God’s

If you were to rule the globe, what two large bodies of the free world would you have to compromise?

In the U.S., we have heard New World Order, New Morality, New Tradition, New NATO, New Government for a New Century, New Age, New Covenant of Government, New Promise, New Democracy, New Economics, New Humanism, New Frontier, New Science and Mathematics, New Realism, New Republic, New Progressivism, New Forum, New World Security, New World Communications, New National Policy, Reinventing a New Government, New Learning, and New Bridge to the Twenty First Century.

In the Catholic church, there is New Mass, New Feminism, New Catechism, Renew, New Liturgy, New Evangelization, New American Bible, New American Catholic Church, New Community Church, New Catholic Encyclopedia, New Theology, New Millennium, New Beatification-Canonization.

Following Woodrow Wilson's New Freedom, we have Roosevelt's New Deal, Hitler's European New Order, Lenin's New Economic Policy and Gorbachev's New World Horizontal Church. "New" is man's stamp of approval (placed over God's will) for unwarranted change. As Woodrow Wilson said, "Jesus Christ isn't practical enough." Thus, he sought "new" help from the League of Nations. Wilson's New Freedom has resulted in the present United Nations: Peace without Christ (which is really slavery).

Ecclesiastes states, "Nothing is new under the sun." However, rather than living in the image of God — serving as the representative of God's rule and purpose in creation — man wants to replace god. He wants to make autonomous decisions about life and creation, attempting to carry out those decisions by his own power, for his own selfish purposes. Man rebels by doing good in his, not God's, eyes (Proverbs 12:15).

In the time of Judges, the survival of Israel depended upon the obedience of disobedience of the people to God's Law. Whenever they rebelled against Him, they were oppressed by pagan nations. When they confessed and repented, our Most Holy Triune god raised up judges to deliver them from their "new" gods (Judges 5:7-8).

Warning: Communism and socialism promote equality — all equal in slavery.

    Does this mean that Ron Arthur doesn't believe in the New Testament?

    Ron, public libraries, police forces, fire departments, public parks, the interstate highway system, the Veterans Administration, Social Security, Medicare--all these shared resources that you take for granted and depend upon are elements of socialism. The constitution grants the government the power and responsibility to promote the general welfare.

    Ron says,
    "Warning: Communism and socialism promote equality — all equal in slavery."

    The United States Declaration of Independence states,
    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal . . . "

    Apparently Ron has issues not only with the "New" Testament, but also the founding documents of the United States of America.
