International Law for Christian Nations

International Law based largely on Christianity?

International Law based largely on Christianity?

One of my readers posted a comment that included the following:

“The problem with this is that international law is for Christian nations.  Excerpt from  The Cyclopedic Law Dictionary (verified in Vattel as well):  http://tinypic.com/r/15s7ev5/5

I had no idea of the link between international law and Christianity.  I don’t know that that link is still deemed true today in what passes for “international law”.

But, insofar as I view most of what happens on this earth as evidence of “spiritual warfare,” I’m pleased and excited to see evidence that international law was–and might still be–based on a Christian foundation.

I’m not yet sure how to apply this new insight.  But, if you’ve followed this blog or my radio shows, you might recall that I like to focus on the “man or other animals” definitions of drugs and medical devices.  Insofar as those definitions are subject to a “freedom of religion” challenge, they might also open the door to some challenge in “international law” (provided that “international law” is still founded to some degree on Christianity).

In any case, I’m posting the evidence of the International Law/Christianity “connection” without much commentary simply because I think it’s important and you deserve to see it.  That “connection” is at least consistent with arguments that most of what we see to today is the result of spiritual warfare.

If you have more knowledge on this subject, please let me know.

    I don’t know that I have additional knowledge. However, I believe it fairly obvious that Christianity promotes the value of the individual human life and the Satanic sides promote slavery and death. Unfortunately for all, Satanism is most certainly in the ascendancy. Fools are incapable of individual constructive thought. They are far too eager to be led. They far prefer catchy slogans over wisdom. They can spend a large portion of their day trading bits and pieces on facebook, but are incapable of comprehending anything with the slightest depth. They are like children splashing, yelling and playing in the kiddie pool.

      I think Christianity needs better definition.. There certainly are segments of Christianity that I doubt promote the value of the individual human life except as commodity…. I won’t name names but one of the Christian organizations authored our Constitution and King George made it so —

      THE PARIS PEACE TREATY (PEACE TREATY of 1783): “In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.
      It having pleased the Divine Providence to dispose the hearts of the most serene and most potent Prince George the Third, by the grace of God, KING OF GREAT BRITAIN, FRANCE, AND IRELAND, defender of the faith, duke of Brunswick and Lunebourg, arch-treasurer and PRINCE ELECTOR OF THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE ETC., and OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, to FORGET all past MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND DIFFERENCES that have unhappily interrupted the good correspondence and friendship which they mutually wish to RESTORE,….”

      —– was (per The Informer and James Montgomery’, et. al., exposes on that document and early American history). It is the same ‘Christian’ Organization to which King John ceded the British Empire.. and the crown (banking interests centered in the City of London) still administer the ‘colonies’ ….. and I don’t know of any British colony (e.g., United States) in the sense of being an entity that particularly values human life. Managing the enterprise and its chattel….and it’s wars.. (btw in all of this I am not speaking about Christ.) whether in the middle east or later, in the Indus Valley.

        and my pardon for moving slightly off topic… With respect to International Law….. I wonder what an independent reading of the actual current international law as codified currently might reveal…? My great pleasure would be to see that it actually reflected inclusively, the teachings of Christ. and… I wouldn’t mind a bit of Buddha, the Vedas and Lao Tse as well.

        TREATY CLAUSE IN CONSTITUTION AMERICA’S PLANNED DESTRUCTION

        Elevated education becomes a dangerous threat to the unschooled, in the art of political dynamics: and an all consuming anti-social radical
        movement used in steering away from original Constitutional studies, of which are imperative. At this point we learn that Sec.6, Art. 6 on TREATIES was an input after the Constitution was originally ratified. This little item has been used as the the shaker and mover in bringing America down. There is no other cause in the flooding of our nation over the years as professional revolutionaries have been crowding our shores since 1819, in setting up ghettos from whence Communism found its birth in a land that offered freedom from oppression. A stop gap must end this post socializing of our nation; and one must plow beneath the the surface of planned ignorance that has perverted our national educational system. The ignorant and the super ignorant must be awakened. Here we must digress in search of truth.

        For an example comes the dredging up of Harry Hopkins, New Deal Administrator and presidential advisor, as just another political robot and spy, watering under the wings of Franklin Roosevelt. Hopkins was well educated as a liberal at Cornell University, Iowa-nothing less than a liberally driven sicko- psycho, genetically coined traitor. Treading backwards through the furrows of time to our founding father’s era, lies the master key to the declination of the American Republic, as the political science of pseudo Democracy crept along our national era saddled to a little known clause previously brought to light.

        In the final days of laying down a master plan for an emerging of a people under the United States Constitution, careful examination of this document reveals the mystery of iniquity, as so subtly revealed in Art. 6, Sec..6 regarding ( TREATIES ). The only conclusion is that the little known ” City of Gold ” housed in London England, but under a latter name today, ( finance ), managed to sabotage our new born Republic in the beginning. Please read this article carefully and ponder as to when and where freedom of speech will finally be annulled. COMMUNISM is thought control, nothing more, nor less.

        JUDEO/CHRISTIAN PLUNDER OF ALIEN NATIONS
        Our US state department is a humbugging operation, as a pawn in the hands of Israel. Yes, its billions for an Asian state and billions from banksters, of whom have plundered our national homeowners via an indirect tax increase through hot-money bailouts. The perpetual plundering of honest-working tax payers have leveled off as Wall Street swindlers is swarming with illicit alien investors in, the daily rigging of marketing and and investment engineering into an engagement of petro dollars, in being rigged to counter gold gold reserves of Russia, China, and Germany’s rebellion against Western imperialism. From the West drones and stinger rockets for Eastern states that are aborting the federal reserves’ fiat currency. The petrodollar goes into the dust bin returning home to its founders, Several Western nations in alliance with Asiatic confederations on global monetary standards are going into bartering. The result of this economic intrusion caused by Eastern and Western economic downturns is a war for global markets for both sides. Since President Putin has declared Russia as a Greek Orthodox state, this is a family affair as Catholicism within America has greater influence within the US state Dept. Pseudo democracy will prevail in servicing the state of Israel as sat up in 1948. The end result is that we have several russian long-range bombers now patrolling international waters at fifty miles from our American shores. High treason is the norm in national politics.
        REBLOGGED
        During the 1990s, the U.S. imposed an embargo on Iraq to prevent that nation from receiving all of the food and medicines it needed. As a result of that embargo, 500,000 Iraqi children are believed to have died.
        During much of that embargo, Medeline Albright was the 64th U.S. Secretary of State. On May 12th, A.D. 1996, Secretary of State Albright appeared on 60 Minutes and was asked if the “price” of the embargo-related deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children was “worth it”. Albright replied, “I think that this is a very hard choice, but the price . . . we think the price is worth it.”

      Satan means adversary. Humans, as creatures of Rome, tend to assume that they are superior. Such assumptions naturally attract adversaries.

      As all religions are man-made, any progressive lier can fundle along as a prince of God, in duping innocent and honest people. Billy Graham and John Hagee were and are agents of Satan. Study both of these characters background and their instructions about God and readily recognise that Lucifer gives revelations too. I am not speaking ill against any followers, for i was duped over the years, and listened to bastardised fools milk the souls of unsuspected beings, pawning themselves off as God’s representitives. I would llike to reiterate, Billy Graham has done his part for Satan, and now is bedded-down with a conscious that Satan is well satisfied with. And now, this Hagee is a most dangerous minister within America, for he is in hock with professional revoliutionaries of oriental fundmenralism’s anti-Christ renegades. Christ was never a Jew, but Hagee was born into that cast via the mystery of birth.

        CHRIST WAS NO MONGREL
        A pharisee approached Christ in claiming that he ( Pharisee ) was of the seed line of Abraham the patriarch. Christ rebuked this devil in the flesh as a bold-faced liar. This subhuman was persistent that he was of Abrahamic lineage. Christ said: you are not of Abraham’s lineage, for your father is the devil and he has murdered all the prophets down through the ages, even killing Zachariah between the wall and the temple. At one time this Pharisee was in the lineage of Abraham, but he had race-mixed into the satanic blood lineage of Esau, God’s worst enemy, into the
        Canaanite blood line. Jacob, Esau’s brother, failed to do so, and our Lord named him Israel. From Mary through her husband, Joseph, the blood line is unpolluted back through Isaac, Abraham , Jacob, Shem, Noah and Seth. There were several nations that were forbidden that Israelites to marry. Today, the mixed lineage of Esau runs through the veins of most rulers of western civilization. These people are known as Edomites. They are God’s enemies. Mongrelism is a crime against God’s decree that mankind must disregard mixing with nations via laws made in the name of liberalism. Liberalism is communism. Communism is Bolshevism, and Bolshevism is an ancient mental disorder of a class hysteria of rogues that actually nailed Christ to a tree. Hollywood is their chief corner stone of sexual perversion, being used to liquidate the various nations of families that comprise America. The ruling elite that control Hollywood are multiple nationalities, that are not an ethnic race or nation. They are contemporary remnants of ancient Esau’s dominion over Palestine immigrating from the four corners of the earth, nomads and vagabonds.

        2 TRACKING THE BEAST
        We understand that the Hebrews were in a 400 year bondage in Egypt. This living area was Goshen. Economic slavery was well advanced in goods and services being shipped as far away into the Nile and Euphrates lower city-states. Without slaves the Hebrews would have been nothing but serfs being tied to land. These people gathered up their goods and cattle and crossed the Red Sea. Thousands of slaves accompanied them.

        At Mount Sinai a golden calf was erected. These God’s people fell into Idolatry. We must ssume that phallus depravity was the anti-social fountainhead of a wavering humanity, of which faith had began to waver. Moses was high on a mountain-top, while receiving divine instructions to his people. It is said:to his people, those under a covenant with their maker. But God had given out warning to all that awaited Moses’ return with his messages from his creator. Nothing could be more compelling than that God’s warning to all that literally touched the then holy mountain.would be punished.

        At the foot of the mountain,Sinai, ” And thou shall set bounds unto the people round about, saying,
        Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount… there shalt not be a hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live…Exod. 19: 12-13. It clearly shows that Israel and the beasts stood at the foot of Mount Sinai.Clearly, Cain was forgotten during the flood and the Canaanite came onto the scene. And now Israel has the elements of a beast among them at mount Sinai. We will no longer persue this mystery in saying that Satan has never gien up hope in destroying the nation of Shem, God’s chosen seed lineage.

        Actual truth is a frightening voice from the past, when God’s word becomes twisted, as to the corrupt manefestation of gospel truths become reconstructed upon a payed ministry of ill-advised clergymen and their little world of comprehension of which Satan has led them into the ever expanding field of filthy lucree. For sure, such humnaoids will receive their rewards.

        Our Lord wants us to be watchful. We must not be deceived by political liberaslism. The truth stings, so one great cloud of misunderstanding reveals Satan’s mind set.

        We are now dealing with a brute beast. Its nature of existence is still a mystery. But truth prevails.
        We must go in ll peter 2: 12-19 Chap 2. and the book of Jude. In 2 peter chapter 2. ” But these as natural brute beast, made to be taken and destroyed…count it pleasure to riot in the day time …having eyes full of adultry, and that cannot cease from sin…these are wells witout water, clouds that are carried away with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved forever…

        CHRISTS VS SERPENTS AND BEASTS
        In the Garden of Eden Christ warned of Satan and his seed line being in conflict with each other’s seed lineage. Notice that Adam had little nor anything to say here. So the fight between the good seed of Eve is carried on today. There is intellectual contention that seed is not derived from females, and it is incorrect to believe otherwise.We must recall that God mysteriously impregnated Eve himself. Taken this in account, the divine seed line runs back through Joseph, the husband of Mary. This is back through isaac, Jacob, Abraham to Noah to Seth of of which Cain killed. Evidently, Seth received some sort of patriarchal authority that Cain held. Eve had multiple children and cain was not the first one. It is compelling in order to know if cain was black or white. Here this is pure conjecture.
        We do now that that a mark was put upon Cain. Too, that any man harming cain would be compelled to answer unto the almighty. Cain was restricted to east of Eden, the land of Nod. Bo doubt, this area was a composition of many people. Cain took a wife. It is supposed that cain married one of his sisters. This is pure conjecture, for Cain had moved into another tribal bloodline. It must be accepted that we had two independent divisions of humanity side by side.

        Our creator is not the originator of confusion. So Satan was allowed and obligated, as previously planned, to bring to divide innocent souls into devious errors in practice his ant-disposition towards our creator’s dealing with his chosen seedline, as originating with Adam and Eve. Out of all this so seemingly confusion the holy spirit finally opted to infuse god’s mankind with the Holy Ghost to fill the earth and to multiply all creation of mankind and animal life after its kind.

        WithIn the years that Noah’s offspring multiplied secret societies prevailed. This sort of man’s weakness to fall into collusion as evil was the result of idolatry, with
        too much leisure, collective evil and sexual idolatry a national social order known as Master Mahan held devilish influence as a political force. To reveal its secrets brought immediate death. Since Cain was non-existent, in exile and forgotten, Canaanite replaced Satan’s trickery in using Cain as a sort of fall guy. Master Mahan became overbearing in corrupting with idealized phallus worship. In in this pre-flood era, God apparently was angry, when the men of God took the daughters of man into wedlock. God’s each after its kind in spirit and physical pathology were ignored. Noah’s descendants became weak in the flesh, and gradually immersed into a specific seedline, Canaanite, a nation and race that was not lost in the great deluge of the flood.

    From Vattel, Chitty’s Edition, 1883, Preliminaries, under footnote [1] http://www.constitution.org/vattel/vattel.htm

    In cases of doubt arising upon what is the Law of Nations, it is now an admitted rule among all European nations, that our common religion, Christianity, pointing out the principles of natural justice, should be equally appealed to and observed by all as an unfailing rule of construction, (2 Ward’s Law of Nations, pp. 11, 339, 340.)

    Wards Inquiry into the Foundation and History of the Law of Nations has much on the topic, http://books.google.com/books?id=BKZJAAAAcAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=wards+law+of+nations&hl=en&sa=X&ei=9ZODUaiQJeXn0wHotIHgBw&ved=0CDUQ6AEwAQ

      THE HONEYMOON ON OPPOSITE SIDES OF FENCE
      It seems that a national orgy is taking roots, as to what manner
      specific people should practice self-indulgence, in attempting bypass
      mother nature. Dr. Sigmund Freud coined the ” Oedipus Complex,” into
      play regarding individual repression and regressing as individuals
      differ as to the unknown conscious release of erotic inhibitions and
      anxiety, long stored away since childhood. During mass hysteria, as we
      witness, sublimating intellectual are coming forth, in order to
      subconsciously connect with this nationwide release of stored up energy.

      Individuals being diverted from memories of infantile fixations, long repressed
      desires, shielded via political whoredom arising forth from toddler insecurity to be loved.
      This abnormal courting of a contraceptive guardian brings on post behavioral
      confrontation, in trying to trick the alter Ego, in abiding with the Id,
      to defuse overdue anxiety, of which mentally unstable instincts must take
      group satisfaction, in clasping hands, party inclinations, that some way
      must be found to thwart massive psychoneurosis, in avoiding all temptations that has
      hounded mankind from the days of Adam and Eve. The National Psychiatric
      Association has long ago questioned just how Sigmund Freud designated
      regression and repression as tied to individual libido, two-party political rape,
      in somewhat altering this observation, and its psychological play on
      individual /class neurosis. The late Dr.Judd Marmor, in his ” Psychiatry In
      In transition ” disapproves of Freud’s contention that politically inspired mental
      cripples or religious fanatics, reconsider and denounce the personality disorder,
      schizophrenia, as applied to individuals in public office to be replaced as fools.

      The open love affair between both houses of congress in politically gang-raping
      the American hostess, will bring down this gang of open repression, not by political libido,
      or masking schizophrenia, but through the absurd two-party fondling of the constitution.
      To continue in looting the national intelligence is contrary to a responsive cliche that, more than likely, actually believes that a flea would contemplate crawling up an elephant’s leg with rape on its mind. Homo Sapiens has a class history of impulsive anxieties. Psychiatry is a dead-end.
      But, one must conclude that Freud’s two-party syndrome, the Oedipus complex, occasionally
      comes out of the congressional closet.

      question. Yet, the squabble between pro-contraception preservers and
      those against this proposal, are in the same in that two classes of
      individuals are using public sublimation, as erotic desires still lay
      deep within the unknown subconscious– repression and regression.

        CHRIST WAS NO MONGREL
        Our savior is our oldest brother as first born in the flesh of God. The enemies of all Western world righteousness carries a bloodline running back to ancient Esau.
        Esau had a twin brother named Jacob. God called Jacob Israel. God cursed Esau for intermarrying within the Canaanite race. God says: Jacob have I loved but Esau I have hated. This spiritual war moves along today, There is no such thing as a middle ground. Hundreds of years after Noah’s Ark founded ground it was discovered that the Canaanite race survived the great deluge. Noah’s son, Ham, married into the Canaanite race. Egypt was founded by a hamite pedigree and was the first great country. Nimrod, bloodline of Ham founded Babylon. Jesus Christ’s bloodline was polluted at this beginning from Ham until our present contemporary civilization. Even from the historicity beginning with Adam and Eve Canaanite intermarriage brought down God’s hand upon forbidden racial inter mixture and homosexuality, thus the flood came forth from a vengeful almighty.
        Noah had two more sons, Japheth and Shem. God chose Shem as the progenitor of a chosen Race. Our Lord decreed that this bloodline should remain unpolluted as long as Shem’s lineage walked this earth. All Western civilizations were set up by this shemitic people through the implications of divine intuition of God-fearing mankind. In fact, eighty percent of Shem lineage came from Germany and Western Europe and the Baltic area of Scandinavia. This was in
        the cause of the American Revolution of 1776. In Holy writ a people called the Hyksos crossed the Red Sea and overthrew the Pharaoh of Egypt. This was a nation of Shem–they were known as shepherds. They ruled for one thousand years. The Canaanite rule was quelled, If moses, Joseph, or Abraham had married into the Canaanite Egyptian race neither one could have held the Melchizedek priesthood that Christ had held.
        Japhet was Noah’s son. Japhet married into the Canaanite seedline. And now the Arabic nation is born. The Arabs are first cousins of the so-called Jews. This is a claim that Abraham had married an Egyptian slave girl given to him by the pharaoh of Egypt. This slave was of shemitic lineage. The name Jew was coined into world literature after our revolution of 1776. the name did not exist before that time. The translators come up with the word jew as derived from Judaism. The jews are not an ethnic nor nation for they are world wanderers as nomads. The Israeli nation sat up in 1948 is fraudulent and are of Eastern European ancestry. Their peers came out of Mongolia.
        During WW11 Russia’s red army invaded east Berlin, This army was made up of uncivilized asiatics out of Mongolia for the most part. In the rear of this devilish band of outlaws Russia had a blocking army in making sure that the Red army would not reverse its attack on Berlin. In the name of God and country shem people of all ages, especially children and women battled the invading Asiatic mobs hand-to-hand, home to home, street to street, as all hell was turned a loose against civilized humanity as the enemy of civilization had slain God’s chosen seed line. Several hundred thousands died in Berlins struggle for liberty and justice. All-in-all, it was esau and Jacob, one for the Canaanite blood line, the other for Abraham and god’s unpolluted blood line. During WW1 any and all ruling classes of Shemitic lineage were killed off. As King Solomon observed: there is nothing new under the sun”.
        Peradventure, as foreseen, the chickens have come home to roost. As we must understand that our present national leadership along with their foreign allied nations do carry the menacing bloodline that God has denounced through the ages. Since Israel’s president Netanyahu has failed to drag America into a third world war our commie-controlled national confederation is trying to open doors for him through the illegal use of NATO. Israel monetary infrastructure demands that we have an EU plus Ukraine confederacy of economic correlation.
        President Putin of Russia has blocked such commie run Western proliferation into the sight of White House Russia. Here, again, Putin has proclaimed white ( Shem ) Russia as an orthodox state religion. Esau and his gang in Washington with generals in the Pentagon cannot take Russia on ground fighting. Too, both nations hold nuclear weapons. When nations persecute Abraham’s chosen seed line, Shem, as the obvious ultimate in class political whoredom, then the hand of God steps in. We nestle hope that America will look to God in protecting His children.

    but since the children of Israel are by nature unwilling to study History, and will always take the easy way out….they will take the leaven of the Pharisees and get a permanent YEAST INFECTION called the [ ZOG ]….USGOV !

    There is a Spiritual Battle…and it is a daily battle for Souls

    http://biblos.com/zephaniah/3-9.htm

    The very foundations of America, the New Jerusalem and New Zion as spoken of in the Scriptures. The apostle wrote that “it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”

    We are still in His hands and the lash of correction will continue to be felt until it accomplishes its end. The day will come when the people will give voice to the words spoken through the Prophet Hosea: “Come, and let us return unto the Lord; for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.” Our God, the Holy One in the midst of Israel, will yet have the salute of our banners and the allegiance of all the people. Great voices in heaven have already proclaimed what will become an actual reality.

    http://www.israelect.com/reference/WillieMartin/ISAAC-13.htm

    In Search of Isaac’s Children explains an extensive group of Bible passages which are prophecies so clear and definite, that, if the Bible is the Word of God, must be fulfilled; for they are the declared purposes of Yahweh as revealed in His Word concerning His Israel people, the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred people.

    I was informed at one point that most governments are considered eleemosynary institutions, if you find a definition for it you will find it described as such: Of, relating to, or dependent on charity; charitable. This is consistant with what most people expect from both governments and religions that is to do “good works” for the benefit of all(philanthropy). However an overlooked point is that forced charity is not charity, especially in the form that politicians practice it, taking from one people and giving it to another and reaping the praise for this selfless act(cynically ironic because it truely is selfless in that they bear none of its burdens).

    Do you not expect that religion is exempt from these same perversions? Both institutions expect belief, blind or otherwise from their comsumers, for nothing that can be proven, only believed or witnessed. How is being termed a christian really much different than labeled a citizen?

    I can’t know anything from moment to moment what conditions might hold for me, unlike religion which seems entirely voluntary, government is certain it can make these decisions for me. In everything it does you see increasing regimentation in nearly all things from the way schools are run, to the roadways their statute law and law enforcement militarization. These are not the characteristics of benevolence of the gods Hermes and Eros(philanthropy) these are of the nature of Mars(militant, MARtial). I think when the Romans got their hands upon the bible they mangled it. Mixing some of the original truths expressed within it with some of that which was politically expedicious, when western and european governments began utilizing it, many of them might have overlooked the fact that Rome was a nation obsessed with military expansion and as such endeared to Mars. France uses the motto: Liberté, égalité, fraternité tanslates to Liberty, equality, fraternity. Fraternity meaning brotherhood, in Spanish: hermano, which comes again from Hermes. A government based on Mars is going behave to questions of its legitimacy more than not with the equivilant of “Because I said so” or “otherwise I’ll kick your ass”. Governments based on Hermes or benevolence don’t resort to execution, imprisonment or corruption of blood to get their way as this is conflicted with the original mission which is to be a benevolence and not a malefactor.

      “I was informed at one point that most governments are considered eleemosynary institutions”

      Perhaps it is necessary to point out that government is not State. Governments come and go and are appointed to represent State but they are not to be confused with a State. Many a good State has mistaken the acts of their agents to by synonymous for their own acts. Governments that pander to financial interests cannot be said to be good representatives of States. Governments that spend their entire term of existence in perpetual bankruptcy (a form of financial death) need to be relegated to the universe (to borrow from set theory) of other dead entities whose views are no longer relevant.

    Me thinks I must protest. Maybe I’m splitting hairs. What disturbs me is the constant and unquestioned use of the word “Christian”. I believe the so-called “universal” catholic organization captured that personna and continues to clothe itself and be identified with that term, and has been for centuries. Just ask someone who is a “catholic”! In 1517 Martin Luther re-established the truth about this matter and the resultant movement is manned with PROTESTANTS. That’s almost 500 years! Just sixty years ago (I remember) there was a definite and well-recognized demarcation between the two, but now understanding is quite blurred, thanks to the deceivers.

    I fear we Protestants are no longer Protestants. We don’t recognize our heritage. We don’t understand our future. Perhaps if we embraced more truth we would experience increased power and strength in spiritual warfare.

      We “Protestants” should embrace more truth–and less 501(c)3 “state-churches”. Thanks to 501(c)3 “state-churches,” we Protestants may no longer be “protestants” so much as secular humanists.

I am aware of a few so called 501(c)3 “state-churches”.who DO teach the so called Law of Moses as BINDING TODAY. & it is NOT the “law of Moses” but the Law of “El.” BUT, I doubt that anything I just typed out will be understood.

      Do you mean Protestants are no longer protesting? If so, why? What were the original protests about? Protestants are not called Protestants for nothing. I protested to other Protestants when I too was a Protestant. I was advised to find another Protestant group more to my liking. “The True Church of “God” the “Eternal God” is not a Protestant Congregation. This is what I eventually discovered. I had a few Protestant “preachers” tell me if they “preached” what the Holy Bible REALLY said to teach & proclaim, they would lose their “Flock.” Does this TRUTH” tell anyone out there anything?

      This the universal Catholic church. ll Protestant churches originated from the Catholic church. Therefore, they are man-made.

    Mr. Adask: I am glad this subject has finally been brought up because it will inevitably lead to a related topic dear to my heart and about which I will blog myself later this summer. That is, What are the origins, legal and otherwise, of the Roman Catholic Church? Because let’s face it, whenever the phrase “Christian nations” gets thrown around, particularly in older references, we are talking about lands dominated by the Church, i.e., Christendom.

    In a nutshell, my own research has led me to conclude that the Roman Catholic Church was in fact founded, not by Peter who never once set foot in Rome, but by the Jewish scholars to whom he preached in that then famous seat of Jewish learning, Babylonia. Following the destruction of the Temple in 70 C.E., the surviving members of the Pharisee, Sadducee, and priestly classes, all lawyers from good breeding stock and wealth, joined forces with the scholars and learned men, or “early Church fathers,” to found a new empire that would dominate Rome and reclaim the lost gold of the temple that had passed into Roman coffers.

    A network of erudite legal professionals from various centers of learning centers beyond Babylonia formed the core of what we now know today as the Vatican.

    When you look at the striking similarities between Catholic liturgy and the Mosaic law, it is impossible to turn one’s face away from the idea that the apostasy of which even Peter and John warned was right then setting in among the true followers of Christ, the gnostic Judaizers who did in fact create a New World Order in the 2nd century A.D., whose webbed fingers stretch out and control this globe down to this very day.

    Please note this quote from the research material at this site:

    http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/cienciareal/babylon01.htm
    (scroll down to the sections “Jewish Community in Rome” and “Roman Catholicism”)

    “Little wonder that one Jewish convert to Roman Catholicism made the astounding statement that entering the Catholic Church was not a “conversion” experience for him, but rather a continuation of Judaism. Roy Schoeman, the author of Salvation is from the Jews, confirms as well that the Mass is based on the Jewish ceremonial worship and that Catholic theology is based on the Old Testament!”

    I believe that the Church has never been, and was not intended to be, functioning as a Religion but has in fact been using “Religion” as a mask to front its true purpose of global domination, all “legally” established.

     
    • Adask

      May 3, 2013 at 10:28 AM

      If I recall correctly, the Bible reports that Peter was called to minister to the “Jews” while Paul was called to minister to the “gentiles”. If so, it would follow that whatever faith is ultimately most closely associated with Peter would have a lot in common with Judaism. The faith associated with Paul, on the other hand, might be more distant from Judaism.

      Thanks for your comments and research.

      “let’s face it, whenever the phrase “Christian nations” gets thrown around, particularly in older references, we are talking about lands dominated by the Church, i.e., Christendom.”

      Not lands. People(s). Religious laws attach to people. Land has no concerns at all with religious concepts, has no say in the matter at all. A people can agree to a set of rules that guide their governance but the actual government in place might be de facto or it might be de jure. The difference between the two is whether any individual agrees to be represented by that government or not. Should the government deviate from the principles that people consider Law then that people might choose to withhold their representation.

      In medieval times an annual event was to take an oath of allegiance to whatever lord was established in a region. Failure to take this oath was punishable by fine and/or imprisonment (a form of duress). The topic and end goal of allegiance was land though … nothing more and nothing less. Land and the control of land monopolized the medieval mind in the feudal system and common law.

    Does this mean that if a foreigner has an international conflict with, let’s say, the United States, then to establish jurisdiction in an international court, the United States would have to declare to be a Christian Nation in order for the court to hear the U.S.’s side?

    Could the U.S. prove itself to be a Christian Nation with its Constitution? I don’t think so. But, it could prove to be Secular in nature.

    My guess would be that the U.S. could submit to the foreign international court’s jurisdiction.

    But, is there a way to force the U.S. to concede to be a Christian Nation?

        You got that right. No doubt that if the U.S.o.A. was originally founded upon the Muslim Religion,we would not have ANY “Christian shrines”, (buildings called churches) etc. in this Country OR any other religious “temples.” We would still be a Muslim Nation today. Same goes for Buddhism,& Hinduism. Secular humanists, are what we are for the most part. But nobody seems to “really know WHY.” It’s easy to know why when you know who is calling the shots.

    The United Nations is private international law. There are few stateless people in the world today and there is a reason for this. That reason is conflict of law. If you travel with a passport then you are either a national or a citizen of some country. If that country has established a relationship with the U.N. (and I know of no country that has no relationship) then you admit to the jurisdiction of a law that is not christian based.

    Treaties are just a specialized form of contract.

      Did all “international law” cease to be based on Christianity? Or did they distinguish between the pre-1856 “Christian” “international law” and the post-1856 “secular”(?) “international law”?

        International law as such didn’t change at all in 1856. What changed was its exclusiveness to Christian states, because Turkey, a non-Christian state, was included by the terms of the Treaty of Paris which ended the Crimean War in that year.

        The name of international law did not change in 1856, at least not in connection with the addition of the first non-Christian state. There was no change in the nature of international law to coincide with Turkey becoming a participant, so there was no need to change any names to mark the occasion.

        The Treaty of Paris also codified the law of the sea for the first time, so maybe some people change a name or use an adjective on that basis.

      “With the admission of Turkey to the community of nations in 1856, international law ceased to be a law between Christian states only.”

      You don’t change the entire foundation when you add another level to the castle. A treaty of peace is an agreement between warring factions. An agreement to end a war does not make Turkey Christian nor amend other agreements existing between Christian nations. Nor does a treaty of any sort change the nature of Christian nation signing on to that treaty.

      From Ward volume 1 : “But though a particular number of States may be avowedly within the pale of the same Law; it certainly can hardly fail to happen that there may be others barely upon the verge of it; and the complexion of their character, is therefore dark and doubtful. These, may partake of two laws at the same time; or they may absolutely be under the control of one, with the rest of the Nations of their own Class; while they partially adopt the other, as far as it regards their partial intercourse with the Nations of another Class. Such States as these, are for the most part bordering upon one another, or if at a distance, connected in some measure by Trade and Navigation; and such States may be deemed to be in a kind of Twilight between the two Laws.

      In this situation, the Turkish Empire seems to have been for some time; governed no doubt in its intercourse with the Nations of the East and South, by the ferocious maxims of those countries; but turning, with a manner somewhat softened, to a connection with the States of the Western World.”

      Ward’s Enquiry into the Foundation and History of the Law of Nations in Europe” was written in 1795.

        “Did the admission of Turkey into international law change the nature of international law, or the nature of Turkey–or, perhaps, both?”

        The nature of treaties is to over-ride previous contracts (aka constitutions). The treaty establishes what each party is to agree to and they act accordingly. Treaties have been notorious for being broken though so tend to be honored or not as the whim may be. Nothing permanent here if a Nation truly wants to discard the treaty and renegotiate.

    “INTERNATIONAL LAW. The law which regulates the intercourse of nations; the law of nations. 1 Kent, Comm. 1, 4. The customary law which determines the rights and regulates the intercourse of independent states in peace and war. 1 Wildm. Int. Law, 1.

    Public International law is the body of rules which control the conduct of independent states in their relations with each other.

    Private International law is that branch of municipal law which determines before the courts of what nation a particular action or suit should be brought, and by the law of what nation it should be determined.”
    Black’s 4th Ed. 1968

    It is established then, since the Declaration of Independence was incorporated into International Law at the Treaty of Paris, all of the “self-evident” truths referenced in the Declaration are incorporated by reference into International law. This would either reaffirm or supercede any previous “truths” held to be truths so understood in the law of nations.

      If the previous definitions are valid, and if the “The State vs this state” hypothesis is valid–then we might have to invoke “private international law” to determine whether we should be tried in the courts of “this state” or the courts of The State.

    Further, insofar as American Common Law differs from the previously dominant Catholic Common Law, the American Common Law is the determining law for any disputed matter, when it is incorporated by reference into any pleading in a court of “law.”

    ALL judges take an Oath to support and defend the Constitution. All Constitutions on our soil derive their authority from the unAlienable Rights as disclosed in the Declaration of Independence. Therefore, by extension, the laws of nature are international law. So, if the “US Constitution” or the “Constution of the United States” aka THE UNITED STATES, are actually foreign within a non-territorial state, or even within the united States, judges may have a fiduciary liability, if they fail to disclose that conflict of interest.

        Our primary duty is to serve our Creator with all of our heart, mind and soul. If he commands it we have a duty to obey. Secondarily in carrying out our solemn duties we have to protect the Life the Creator endowed us with by exercising our rights. We then have the duty to use our rights to help those whom the Creator has entrusted in our care. Keeping faithful to our duties is what empowers us exercise our rights for our good and the good of the ones the Creator told us to love. Therefore if you do not know your duties you will not know your rights.

        Many have been denied their ‘rights’, indeed. Most ‘citizens’ seem to know no duty except submission to an authority figure. Most of the “authorities” are false Gods unto themselves and those that follow their orders. Again, the source of all Rights spring forth from Duties.

Maybe “Let Us Reason Ministries” is too. I’m going to investigate & find out. Anyway, what a mess.

    From,Let Us Reason Ministries

    This Directory lists the different Christian Cults and aberrational groups on this site

    While we speak the truth in love, the cults speak love in lies.

    Christadelphianism- Denying the essentials yet calling themselves Christians.

    International Churches of Christ -(Oahu church of Christ) Believe they are the only true church with only approx. 170,000 in attendance. They believe in baptismal salvation and intense shepherding.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses- Now nearly 7 million worldwide 11/2 million in the US deny almost everything in historic Christianity, they believe they are the only true church.

    L.D.S- Mormonism-12 million plus members worldwide claim to have the restored gospel that the bible left out, teach that we too can become Gods.

    Christian Science- The metaphysical teachings of a woman who started a movement -Mary Baker Eddy.

    Oneness Pentecostals- Anywhere from 2-4 million members in America (reported as 17 million world wide) who believe in the deity of Christ but deny the Trinity and salvation by grace through faith.

    Unification Church (Moonies)- Sun Myung Moon and his servants who will do anything for the new Christ.

    Unity church – A blend of various religions, metaphysics, theosophy and Jesus too.

    Iglesia ni Christo- They have anywhere from 4-6 million members world wide believe they are the only true church, and their leader now deceased was the 5th angel in the book of Revelation. Their appeal is nationalistic, specifically to Filipino’s.

    True Jesus Church- They believe they have the restored gospel from China, believe that baptism saves and that Jesus is the Father Son and Holy Spirit.

    Sacred Name Movement- A Hebrew roots movement that promotes restoring the divine name for salvation. What do they claim about themselves, their leaders and the Bible? What do they think of Christians?

    Ogamisama- A modern day savior from Japan.

        The Catholic True Church article says in pertinent part > “Interestingly, the first time this name is used is in Matthew 16:18 where Christ says he’s going to build His church on Peter.”

        My comment >The promise Jesus made was that He would build His Church and that it would never die. “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18). This statement Christ made to Peter has convinced many that Jesus established a line of infallible spiritual leaders who would insure the genuineness of the faith up to the time of His return. Is this true? The name Peter means “small stone or pebble,” and the word “rock” means “massive stone.” What Jesus was saying is that He did not build the Church upon Peter, He built it upon Himself! He was the “stone” the builders rejected (Matt. 21:42).

        The Catholic True Church article says in pertinent part, > The Catholics were blessed with such tremendous wealth and abundance because of their faith that they were able to erect the magnificent St. Peter’s Basilica in honor of the Great God. It’s filled with tons and tons of the finest imported Italian marble, silver, gold, and the costliest materials and art objects available anywhere. It is without a doubt the highest quality building in existence. Evangelist Frank Brown echoed the proud thoughts of many a Catholic concerning St. Peter’s when he commented, “The overall effect of this beautiful building is very striking… it certainly brings home very forcibly just how much this Work has grown and just how much God has blessed it… It makes it a little easier… to realize a little more how great our God is and how pleased He is that we have been faithful in His Work.”

        My comment > Satan also told Jesus this, > Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Matthew 4:9 , Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them…. (Note, Christ did not say that Satan could not do this ).

        ALL the “PROOFS” that the Catholic Church is the “True Church” can be refuted by rightly dividing the truth in the scriptures. Having “Great wealth” in & of itself is not proof of who has the truth. I have been told that some people trade their souls to the devil for earthly glory,etc. I understand this is what Bob Dylan did & made it known on 60 minutes.

        p.s. I have tried posting links before & most of them did not work. I did not know the last one I posted would work. Anyway, I want to become a member of “Big Al’s TRUE church.” All the churches are the true churches & they say so. So I have made my choice. I hope you accept tithes & offerings. I love to tithe & give offerings. BUT,I have even come across some churches that will not accept tithes,etc.This will be the only reason I will not want to become a member of the “Church of Big Al.”

    I’m more concerned that I’m real. The other guys have to work out their own salvation. Mine is more than enough for me. If I am fortunate enough to have that conversation that sparks foundational truth into a “non-believer” I will consider myself a blessed man, indeed. In the meantime, I continue to meet many people of other faiths that exceed the devotion of the loudest of “true believers.” If I get to heaven, I am certain my Mormon aunt will meet me there.

      Hi Cody,
      Re: “non-believer”
      I do not believe there are any “non-believers.” Everyone believes something. Also, Cody, will you kindly point out just one,any one scripture that says you or I or anyone will go to “heaven.” Additionally, the Scriptures mention, the 3rd heaven, which implies there are two others. IF you go to heaven which one of the 3 will you be in? Remember,though, where is any scripture that says anyone goes to heaven,1st,2nd,or 3rd ? THANKS !

      Cody,
      Re: > I’m more concerned that I’m real.

      REALLY ?? Me too. I’m really happy to hear that you are real. Are you going to answer my “heaven” question? i.e., the Bible answer, IF you do. answer. Some people make statements but when they are asked for any proof or evidence of their statement,they seem to disappear. However I don’t believe you are like that & I really mean this. I really do…… for real.

        Les,
        I haven’t pondered which of of the 3 heavens I may be fortunate enough to partake in. However, I’m certain any one of the 3 will be better than the Lake of Fire promised to the non-believers. I can’t prove my faith to anyone. That doesn’t mean that it can be disproven either. So, I think if there is any proof it will have to wait until the Lord says it’s time to find out.
        I do remember the Apostle Paul referencing the 3rd heaven which he say in a vision. I’ve never dwelt on the meaning of what he was talking about very much though.

        What are your thoughts?

        Cody

    Cody,
    Thanks for responding.

    I cannot find anywhere in the Holy Bible where the “believers” go to heaven. Christ says,Thy will be done on Earth as it IS in “heaven.” I am a believer that his will WILL be done on Earth sooner or later. The Scriptures ALSO say that the time is coming WHEN the heavenly Father,ALSO, with his Son, will “reside” on this Earth too !! This is AFTER ALL sin is abolished & the Earth is made pure again. > Rev.21:2 > I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4‘ He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’b or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

    I believe the Earth will some day be the “headquarters of the Universe. For some reason(s), the Earth has always been an important place to & for the Elohim. Remember,>”Coming DOWN “out” of heaven < key words. Thanks again,Cody.

      Les,
      It may be presumed whether believers go to heaven or heaven is brought to them, they will be there. I tend to agree that the earth will be transformed anew by His return.
      I appreciate your thoughts.

    Put this latest issue with Syria and the use of poison gas in terms of international law. Syria certainly is not to be considered a ”Christian nation”. More probably Muslim. International law does not apply to Syria. Their morality is different. Can’t approach them on the basis of their morality or religion. They are however a member state of the U.N. As such they signed on to “private international law”. This is not the same “international law” spoken of in Vattel. Syria consented to be bound by U.N. law. The U.S. should have no problem with whatever Syria does internally but the U.N. should. The rhetoric being put out by the U.S. would seem to be with the U.S. acting in the role of agent for the U.N.

    Very interesting article. I am a scholar of international law and have to confess that the issue of Christian compared to Jewish or Muslim international law is new to me. I believe however, that the issues remain comparable to traditional international law, i.e. the applicability of which law in which context. Does Christian law apply to Christian humans or territories ? etc.

    Very interesting article. Immigration is so to speak the grandfather of international law, i.e. the first contact an individual has with typically with a foreign law. And up to this date immigration law and consequently frontier law remains a hotly debated issue (maybe like marriage). It is sad to a certain degree that these coloniast rules have not been updated after more than a century.International Development Law is not one of my specialities, hence I read your review with great interest. International law remains intricate due to the involvement of several legal systems at the same time and a potential lack of enforceability. Good read.
