What do I mean by "Fight every single ticket?" Well here's what I don't mean:

    Here's what I do mean:

    You were born with a truck-load of God granted rights. You have them no matter what, up and until you either infringe upon someone elses rights or God takes them away from you. You have them whether or not you go to Church. Whether or not your voted in the last election. Whether or not you contribute to the Salvation Army. It's just that simple. Now, if you infringe upon others rights, you should expect to have your rights removed or restricted. It's just that simple again. If you have your rights taken away, but you didn't infringe on anyone elses rights, then FIGHT IT. Your rights can only be taken away by your infringement of others rights. Since government is charged w/the duty to see to it all our rights are secured, it's the one who will problably take them away from you. However, this is not a carte' blanche for the government. It can only take them from you in the instance of you infringing upon someone elses rights. Absent that, you FIGHT IT. How do we FIGHT IT? I, with the devine providence of the Lord and the events He has put into place, have developed a philisophy.

    For me, all rights are religious in nature. I believe God gave me life, liberty and the rest of my rights. If we had a Godly government, none of us would ever have to deal w/the infringements. But our present government institution is not a Godly one. How do we know? Does government respect the rights God grants you? For me, it's been 99% NO. So what am I to do? I distance myself as best I can.

      2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and lawlessness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?

      2 Corinthians 6:15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?

      2 Corinthians 6:16 What ageement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: I will live with them and walk amoung them, and I wil be their God, and they will be my people .

      2 Corinthians 6:17 Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean things and I will receive you.

    So far, I've been very fortunate in these things. But they have, by and large, been on a personal, one to one level. For the most part, they envolve little or no government authorities. They do however, require some interesting ways of doing things.

      Matthew 10:16 I am sending you out like sheep amoung the wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.

      Matthew 10:17 But be on your guard against men; they will hand you over to the local councils and flog you in their synagogues.

      Matthew 10:18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentils.

      Matthew 10:19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say,

      Matthew 10:20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

    I can attest to that last line personally. Now I've ventured out into some areas that are not so easy. Many times I have been able to limit my contact w/the officier or government official. That's the best way, and actually like the first ones, where it is "one on one." You simply present your case to them w/sincerity and honesty, and they respect your rigths. However, as time goes on, I have more and more contact, so inevitably, I end up in contact w/the government in a more official way. Also, there are times when you will run into those who do not respect your beliefs. These are not so simple.

    Thus, I eventually end up in court or a hearing. I don't like to be there, but I don't mind too much either. When I get here, I want to maintain that distance, as best I can. I'd like to build a wall as high as heaven to insulate me from them. I do this in several ways.

    1. Use their own "laws" against them. My opinion is that Godless government has a serious shortcoming: it lacks foundation. Thus, many of the rules and regulations it creates are flawed from the start. This could be something as simple as proceedural arguments to language that is uncomprehensible. Read every line of every statute cited critically. Don't take anything for granted. Don't rush; read every word, one at a time, w/complete understanding. Use their own bricks to build the wall.

    2. I rely upon the times and people in our government when it was a Godly government. They left legacies for us to use. Even during some of the worst times, you can find people who had God in their hearts and their decisions show us that. There are many Supreme Court decisions and opinions that support a Godly government. So I use them to build the wall. (US v. Texas 1966 is one such case, even tho it doesn't mention "God" anywhere.)

    3. I rely on my freedom of religion. So far, they have not been able to dimish that one to the point that I cant use it to build the wall. Yes, they have diminished it enough to effect my life, but I can still pull out the Armour of God when I need it.

    You'll notice I keep refering to a wall. Well I do this for several reasons. But the one I'd like to mention now is this: The Supreme Court has declared there is a "wall of seperation between church and state." Okay, I'll accept that as Public Policy in the 90s. I disagree with it, but that is the reality of our current system. So, I choose to be on this side of the wall; the Lord's side. They want to build a wall between our people and the government? So be it. I'm on the this side of the wall, the state is now on the other.

If you would like an excellent reference for the history of religion in our country, God and The Americans was one of the very best you could find (if you can find it, it's no longer online and not on Amazon). It was fair, unbiased and supported by quotes and facts. It was also very complete, going from well before the discovery of America to present day. It was written by Paul Johnson, an eminent British author. I strongly recommend it if you can find it. Here's a few excerpts:
