When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. John 16:13 ESV

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, Ephesians 4:11‭-‬15 ESV

“See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ…Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath.” (Colossians 2: 8, 16)

You are right he gave us dignity and free agency, but even more Jesus gifted us the Holy Spirit baptism to guide our conscience:

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. John 16:13 ESV

So, according to God's purpose he may convict people to make different decisions absolutely.

The golden rule is also what I thought in the shower. It all comes apart when you substitute loving your neighbor as yourself with do onto others as you would want done to yourself.

For me, in other shoes as a black man with diabetes or as a person immune compromised, I don't want to force others to take the vaccine or get tested, that is up to their conscience and decisions. This is seeing them as human and your neighbor

The other party is so evil and conniving and not loving their neighbor, they are trying to force them against their conscience and without good arguments.

my first thoughts are 1) dehumanizing beings in Gods image 2) Psalm 91 3) while we obey government, we also honor our body like a temple so if our conscience/holy spirit guides us not to take it, it is sign to listen to our conscience

I emailed my church elder about it and he is looking into it as well.

His last lines were “I love you” I felt that and that he meant that.

Can any corruptician in DC say the same thing without stinking up the place with their corrupt dealings and love of money? Here’s a man who won’t sell the country for money, can’t be bought

So when he says he loves you and fights for you he means it

Federal: Damn, it’s almost like we need a mark and then shut out all those who don’t have the mark from buying or selling from groceries etc

Christians: 👀

Talked with attorney and they are claiming “insubordination” which applied in this case is unprecedented/uncharted waters. It is inconclusive if this works or not, but if one claims a medical or religious exemption and is not accommodated one has a stronger case

Rome fell when they hyper inflated the Denarius to oblivion, then vandals, and other nations came to battle them with their government collapse. Seems we are not far off if this becomes reality given how fragile the US stock market and economy is pinned up with reckless monetary policy.

If the federal government collapses from moral rot, do the states pick it up and rewrite a new nation?

If this happens, does China come and invade US?

It’s going to be other countries when the federal government collapses from this financial modern monetary theory they propped up this whole economy with, it will be states defending themselves against hungry-hippo countries, potentially China, that come to seize land.

I don’t think my enemies should even be treated like that Thomas Paine once said you should guard the freedoms of your enemy because else it can backfire on you

Proverbs 28:15 “Like a roaring lion or a charging bear is a wicked ruler over a poor people.”

Comes to mind

Also

Proverbs 28:2 (NLT) When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability.

I noticed when a large text post such as https://m.communities.win/c/home?post=12j08QHT8q

Showed, it condensed the text over itself and didn’t word wrap or hide it correctly
