Petition News Banner

Texas Petition for the Sanctity of Marriage

PETITION to the GOVERNOR, ATTORNEY GENERAL, STATE LEGISLATORS, and PUBLIC OFFICIALS on SANCTITY of MARRIAGE in the STATE OF TEXAS

Whereas we agree that natural, traditional marriage is, according to Natural Law and by definition and historic practice, the union of one man and one woman; and

Whereas the laws of nearly all societies throughout history have forbidden homosexual conduct, ruling it a crime against the order of nature and of Nature’s God; and

Whereas the U.S. Supreme Court’s Obergefell “opinion” inventing a “right” to same-sex “marriage” was an un-natural, unjust, unlawful act that, as Chief Justice John Roberts noted in his dissent, had nothing to do with the Constitution and Justice Clarence Thomas in his dissent stated lacked “even a thin veneer of law”; and

Whereas the first clause of the U.S. Constitution clearly states: “All legislative powers herein granted [by the states through the People] shall be vested in a Congress of the United States,” to which the federal Court assumed legislative powers using an illegitimate means to reach an unconstitutional result that recognizes invalid unions for the perpetration of immoral conduct; and

Whereas not one of our key founding American “cultural” issues has been changed by a vote of the people, such as abortion, marriage, prayer in schools, and free speech, but rather have all been altered by “court opinions”; and

Whereas the “opinion” of 5 un-elected federal judges are no longer bound by the plain wording of the Constitution as understood and intended by its Framers, and as such they propose to be unaccountable to God as a higher magistrate by perverting the words of the Constitution to mean anything they want it to mean; and

Whereas when a federal act or program is considered “unwarrantable” (unconstitutional), the states have a long history of exercising their moral duty of interposition to arrest the progress of un-constitutional acts by refusing to participate in its enforcement on a large scale, and stop that act or program in its tracks, as in the STAMP Act of 1765, Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, the REAL ID Act of 2005, medical Marijuana, ACA exchanges or Medicaid expansion, and so on; and

Whereas Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Kentucky Resolves, “In questions of power, then, let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief with the chains of the Constitution.“, to which the purpose of the Constitution was to define and restrain federal power, not to allow the majority “opinion” of unelected judges to roam at large in the trackless fields of their own imaginations; and

Whereas the 9th and 10th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution reserve all powers to the People and the States which are not specifically delegated to the federal government, in this particular the authority to affirm what constitutes marriage; and

Whereas the Constitution of the State of Texas, Article I. BILL OF RIGHTS, Sec 32 affirms “Marriage in this state shall consist only of the union of one man and one woman; and the same Constitution charges the Texas State Legislature with authority to determine standards for granting marriage licenses, and codifying that authority in statute; and

Whereas under Texas statute, the Family Code, Title IThe Marriage Relationship, specifically states that A license may not be issued for the marriage of persons of the same sex.”

Therefore, We the undersigned, strongly endorse, support, and call upon the Governor, State Attorney General, State Legislature, and Public Officials in Texas to perform their moral duties as Lesser Magistrates answering to God, interposing on behalf of the People against the unlawful Obergefell “opinion” which violates God’s law, natural law, the U.S. Constitution, Texas Constitution, and the Texas Family Code, and to treat any and all such unlawful federal acts and “opinions” which intend to unlawfully legislate, as void and of no force in the State of Texas.

WE STAND UNITED WITH ISRAEL!

The United Nations, with the blessing of the Obama administration, has ambushed Israel with a resolution that places the Jewish State in the crosshairs of radical Muslim groups, like the Palestinians, while targeting Israelis for unjustified sanctions, as deemed appropriate by the UN.

We are calling on the Trump administration and the 115th Congress to take swift and formal actions against those who would do harm to Israel:

•Pass resolutions that condemn the Obama administration for not supporting Israel and to prevent any further betrayal
•Denounce and defund the United Nations
•Cut foreign aid to nations supporting the UN resolution
•Defund the Palestinian Authority

The Obama administration is throwing Israel under the bus!

Israeli leaders will have to deal with the fallout from this egregious act by the Obama administration. Israel has been continually disadvantaged by Barack Obama’s incoherent and badly executed policy in the region.

That’s why we are delivering this message of loyalty and support to our most staunch Middle East ally: We Stand United With Israel!

This petition will be delivered with your name to key members of Congress, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and Ron Dermer, Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S.

States Should Help Bring Down Obamacare

States can and should help end Obamacare whether Congress does their job, or not.

Will Republicans in Congress actually send President-elect a bill to repeal Obamacare?

At this point, a lot of questions remain. Do Republicans even have the votes to get it done? If so, will they completely scrap it, or will they leave parts of it in place? And if they do repeal, will they replace? What will that replacement look like?

With so much up in the air, it’s important to note states can take action right now that will set the stage to bring the Affordable Care Act down, no matter what Congress does.

How?

Refusing to provide any cooperation with the implementation or administration of Obamacare in the state.

The ACA was predicated on state cooperation. By ending all state actions that support the ACA and refusing to enforce any of its mandates, a state can make it nearly impossible to run Obamacare within its borders.

The federal government never intended to run the healthcare system alone, and ultimately, it can’t do it without state help. It even tried to compel states to expand Medicaid under the act, but that portion was struck down in the famous “Obamacare case,” NFIB v. Sebelius.

Additionally, we’ve seen the difficulties created for the Act by the number of states that simply refused to set up exchanges for the federal government.

Refusing to expand Medicaid or set up an exchange are two essential steps states should take, but they can go even further. Judge Andrew Napolitano noted that if a number of states were to refuse to participate with the ACA in a wholesale fashion, that multi-state action would “gut Obamacare.”

Napolitano said that if enough states follow suit, “it will gut ObamaCare because the federal government does not have the resources or the wherewithal […] to go into each of the individual states.”

BILL INTRODUCED

A bill introduced in the Connecticut House would do just that.

Rep. Robert Sampson (R) introduced House Bill 5138 (HB5138) on Jan. 4. The legislation would completely end any state participation in the Affordable Care Act.

That the general statutes be amended to repeal all statutes implementing health care mandates required under the Affordable Care Act, prohibit the state from participating in any program under or appropriating or expending any moneys in furtherance of said act, and dissolve all programs related to said act.

“The federal government can barely manage running a website,” Tenth Amendment Center Executive Director Michael Boldin said.

Boldin noted that the legislation would ban the Connecticut Department of Insurance from investigating or enforcing violations of federally mandated health insurance requirements and said this will “prove particularly problematic for the federal government.”

Insurance commissioners serve as the enforcement arm for insurance regulation in the states. The federal government has no enforcement arm. The feds assumed the state insurance commissioners would enforce all of the provisions of the ACA.

So, when people have issues with their mandated coverage, they will have to call the feds. At this point, it remains unclear who they will even call should the state be prohibited from carrying out this essential task. Issues the state insurance department would not address include prohibiting a denial of insurance for preexisting conditions, requiring dependent coverage for children up to age 26, and proscribing lifetime or yearly dollar limits on coverage of essential health benefits.

Let The Scriptures Speak Banner

Psalm 139:13-14 “13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” (New King James Version)

This is a somewhat elementary, perhaps even a crude, illustration that clearly pictures why the relationship with God is absolutely necessary. It begins by admitting that we neither created ourselves nor gave ourselves life. David admits someone else made him; he did not arise to life fully formed out of nothing. Like him, we did not determine that we would physically be in God’s image. The Creator made that determination. Can we mentally picture God kneeling down in the dirt, placing Adam’s every part where He wanted it and determining how every part would function with every other system in his body? Even everyday realities such as these need a functioning Creator to bring them to pass.

The need for a relationship with our Creator is beginning to emerge. II Corinthians 5:17 carries the need of the creative relationship a major step further: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” We are now a new creation, a spiritual creation. A process begun in Eden continues.

When Paul wrote about a “new” creation, he had his choice of two Greek words. One expresses newness in the sense of “renovation.” However, Paul used the second term, which suggests new in the sense of “brand new.” He indicates, then, a person as a new individual with a new family, a new set of values, new motivations, and new possessions. Nothing new in this sense creates itself. Even a new baby in a womb does not make itself. The baby has absolutely no idea what it is in process of becoming.

Are we making ourselves spiritually? As a new creation in Christ Jesus, we are no more making ourselves spiritually than we did physically. However, this creation is far more difficult and important because it requires our mindful and willing cooperation with our Creator.

How clearly and precisely do we foresee where our spiritual Creator is headed? To say it bluntly, without God’s calling, which creates the relationship with Him, there is no possibility whatever of knowing anything meaningful about what God is in the process of creating, and therefore no eternal, spiritual salvation would exist. Do we know how to give ourselves everlasting life? Do we know where we will fit into the Creator’s finished plan?

Therefore, it is our responsibility always to do whatever is necessary to seek Him and glorify Him, helping to keep the relationship going and knowledge increasing. Without the relationship that He invited us into, there is no possibility of ever accomplishing the end that He is heading toward and yielding to what He desires. It is as though He has opened the gate to allow us back into the Garden of Eden, right into the very source of every good and perfect gift that will enable us to glorify Him by fulfilling our responsibilities to Him. It is as if He says, as He opens the gate, “Now there, let’s begin the next step in My overall purpose!”

Adoption of Sons by Brad Scott

One of the most provocative teachings of Sha’ul (Paul) is found in the first part of chapter 4 of the book of Galatians. Galatians – you know, that book that everybody quotes to support their premise that Paul’s words have trumped our Savior’s word. Sha’ul’s comments concerning the adoption of sons have their context back in the last part of chapter 3. The teaching of the schoolmaster is directly connected to the heirs according to the promise and to the adoption of sons.

According to the Scriptures, the parents are designed to teach the children. In the hoity-toity, high-browed Greek culture, a paidagogos, or schoolmaster, was hired to teach and transport the young boys (pais) and girls to public teaching arenas, from where we get our modern day public school system. Once the young boy or girl reached a certain age, they were able to transport themselves to and fro. Sha’ul uses these customs to teach the background of what it means to be a Son of God. Once a young boy was shown the whats and hows by the schoolmaster, he reaches a point where he is able to do things on his own. He is no longer under the schoolmaster. This human example is also taught by Sha’ul, using the agricultural principles of how seed works. According to Bere’shiyt (Genesis) 1:11 the seed (faith, Messiah) is in the fruit (Torah, schoolmaster). When the fruit is produced, the seed is contained in the fruit. The purpose of the fruit is to propagate the seed. Once the seed is received, it can now produce its own fruit, which will in turn contain the same seed, and the process goes on and on. This is one reason why Sha’ul talked about the seed more than any one single individual.

In the Hebrew culture of Scripture, the parents were responsible for the children and their education. The instructions (Torah) of our Master were taught to the children by the parents. Before a boy was called a son, he was a na’ar, a yeled, or even an ‘oleyl in Hebrew. This is comparable to our words child, infant, lad or even babe. In the Hebrew and Greek culture, a boy, until he reaches a certain age, listens to and learns from his tutor/parent like any other child. In Hebrew they are called ‘oleyl or na’ar, and in Greek they are called nepios or pais. When a nepios/pais reaches a certain age, they sometimes go through a ceremonial process of becoming a “son.” Some cultures call this the age of accountability; in Israel it is called a bar mitzvah. Son is ben in Hebrew and huios in Greek. Hosea expresses this difference very clearly.

Hoshea (Hosea) 11:1
“When Israel was a child [na’ar], then I loved him, and called my son [ben] out of Egypt.”

In Shemot (Exodus) 4:22, YHVH calls Israel His firstborn. He treats the whole nation as one man. I believe this same concept was spoken of Yeshua‘ as well.

Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 9:6
“For unto us a child [yeled] is born, unto us a son [ben] is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

I submit that two different prophecies are revealed here: That He would be born (yuled) a child (yeled) unto us, but a son (ben) would be given unto us. I see a very clear reference to a crucifixion here that only a son (ben) could fulfill.

Yochanan (John) 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

I also believe that Yeshua‘ was not considered a “son,” per se, until Luke 2:41-50. There are some very provocative words used here that are designed to point us right to what today is called a bar mitzvah.

Luke 2:41-50
“Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the Passover. And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child [pais] Yeshua‘ tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it. But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance. And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him. And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers. And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.”

As far as we can verify historically, the liturgy and customs of today’s modern bar mitzvah are hard to trace to the first century, but anthropologists have found that most cultures have a so-called rite of passage or something similar, with a ceremony attached to it. It is understood that some of the customs and liturgy of today can indeed be traced back long before the first century. Some of these customs are revealed in this narrative. First of all, most cultures deemed a boy to have become a man at or around twelve to fourteen years of age. Modern Judaism uses the completion of the thirteenth year plus one day. Not all bar mitzvahs are the same. There is much difference in style, but all contain some of the same customs, especially in closer knit Orthodox communities. The boy will be the right age. His parents are to be present. He will be called up (‘aliyah) to read the Torah portion for that time. When he is finished, he will be called a “son of the commandments,” and the father will bring forth or present his son to the congregation. The son will now be responsible for himself, and is expected to follow in his father’s trade.

The text in Luke bothers to tell us what time of the year this took place, and how old Yeshua‘ was. This is not the time nor place to do the detailed study of when Yeshua‘ was conceived and born, but suffice it to say that the same writer, Luke, gives us the answer by giving the details of Yeshua‘’s relationship with Yochanan the Immerser (John the Baptist). Yeshua‘ was conceived during the Feast of Dedication (Chanukah), and born during the Feast of Booths or Tabernacles (Sukkot). This puts Yeshua‘s age around 12½ years old in this narrative. Why tell us how old He was? We know that Yoseph (Joseph) and Miriam (Mary) are with Him. When they leave, Yeshua‘ stays behind, and they assume that He is with everyone else. When they return, they find Him sitting among the elder teachers, and were astonished at His wisdom and understanding. They asked Him what he was doing, as they were in sorrow at not being able to find Him. And Yeshua‘ stated almost verbatim the conclusion of a bar mitzvah. “Did you not know that I would be about my Father’s business?” They did not understand, because Yoseph’s business was a carpenter. Yeshua‘ however was saying that He was about The Father’s business. He has become, if you will, a Son of the Father. Later on, the true Father will present His Son publically by introducing Him as His beloved Son. Yeshua‘ will continue to say that He is following in His Father’s business.

Yochanan 3:35
“The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.”

Yochanan 5:20
“For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.”

Yochanan 15:16
“All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.”

Luke 10:22
“All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.”

Let’s address the context now of Sha’ul’s teaching in Galatians 3:26-4:7. Sha’ul ends chapter 3 by stating that we are all sons of God by faith in Messiah Yeshua’, and that if we are Messiah’s, then we are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise. Now remember that the last words of Yeshua‘ to His disciples, in Mattityahu (Matthew) 28:19-20, were to go unto all nations teaching them to observe “whatsoever I have commanded you.” The heirs are likened unto children growing up.

Galatians 4:1-3
“Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child [nepios], differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage [doulos, servants] under the elements of the world:”

When we are children, we obey because we are told to. We are no different than a servant. But there will come a time when the child (nepios) will become a son (huios). Sha’ul uses the example of God’s own Son, if you will, to illustrate the process we go through.

Galatians 4:4
“But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law.”

In the life of a child, which is the context of these passages, there comes a time when the child is brought forth as a son. The Son, Yeshua’, was brought into existence through a woman, just like we are; He was brought up under a schoolmaster, just like we are.

Luke 2:49-52
And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business? And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them. And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart. And Yeshua‘ increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

When Yeshua‘ grew up, He was no longer under his parents tutelage, but He kept all the commandments because that is what He was taught. So He is found teaching among the teachers. The proverbist refers to this same idea when he says to train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. This is the purpose of the schoolmaster. When we are a child, we obey our parents because we have to. Even though their rules are to train us when we are older, as a child we do not understand this. When the fullness of time has come and we are no longer under our parents’ rule, and yet we continue to imitate our parents, we are truly sons and daughters, and are no longer children. Because Yeshua‘ is our walking example, when we follow in His footsteps, we too are now “sons of the commandments,” no longer under the tutelage of our schoolmaster, and we can now produce our own fruit. You and I are now able to cry out, Abba, Father!

Galatians 4:5-6
“To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”

Once again, the context here is the comparison of a child (nepios) with a son (huios). A child is under the responsibility of a parent (Hebrew) or schoolmaster (Greek) until the time has come for them to fly out of the nest, so to speak. Now they are placed as a son, and have all the responsibility and inheritance of a son. Remember, Abraham is our model. The English word adoption is the Greek word huiothesia, or literally to place as a son. In context here, it is the culminating process of a child becoming a son. In verse 1, the heir is a nepios, but when the fullness of time was come he becomes a huios. Because we follow the Messiah, because we are placed in Messiah, now we, too, are sons of God. Since Yeshua‘ is the only begotten Son of God, then we must be in Him in order to be sons of God.

It might be added that the custom of inheritance is that my father passes on his inheritance to me. If I am a child still at home, still under the schoolmaster, I am an heir, but through my youth and lack of maturity, I cannot receive my inheritance. In other words, I am no different than a servant. But when I continue in my father’s instructions and then I am placed as a son (bar mitzvah), I am now not only an heir, but can potentially receive my inheritance. This is the subject of the prodigal son.

Luke 15:11-12
“And he said, A certain man had two sons [huios]: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.”

The younger son was of age to go out on his own, and was able to request his inheritance first. Of course, he did not follow the instructions of his parents (schoolmaster), and soon found that his way was not producing much fruit. As a matter of fact, he found himself more of a servant now than he did when he was just a child. He went back to where he came from, and the father treated him once again like a son. In short, a son is one who reflects the image of his father. A son is one who takes the trade of his father and passes it down to his son. Now I can be about my Father’s business.

Shalom Alecheim [peace to you]!
