A round table discussion on the breakthrough question "Who paid for your freedom and what if they did not?" sparked a new project by the Ministry, Leadership and Communication Institute in Colorado Springs this morning. The discussion will be a series broadcast on a new on demand digital channel, Vantage Point NY. http://www.truli.net/partners/18120/vantage-point-world-media-christian-.... If you would like to join in the discussion you can join in on the Blog site: http://nyradio.wordpress.com.
The wind blew hard from the river. A group of men are gathered at the armory and they are weary, weather and stress beaten. They are subjects of the World Wide Alliance. Some are writers of the underground who ask the question "What if?" This is an audio-novel that takes history and wonders what today would be like if key factors had changed in the world. "What if, for instance the British crushed the colonies in 1776 what would the colonists have become? Would it have effected the progress of freedom, the mother of invention, and French aggression, German aggression and so in in the world wars?" Would the slave trade have continued without Wilberforce in the UK, and Lincoln in the thwarting of the great experiment?
When good men do nothing
Historians do not like to think so much of what the world could have been like if key battles, and causes were not fought. Yet the question remains on altered history in a kind of evil time machine. If evil won out in just one of these causes would the ramifications be an altered world view? The sad truth is that in recent history compromise has been hurt the cause of freedom more than anything else. The Korean War; The Vietnam War; Iraq under George HW Bush (I) and President Barrack Obama. Collateral Damage skirmishes, "end games," and our unwillingness to be strong in our morals and values and influence a world that will kill each other under the guise of religion; politics; or legalism. The world could be a lot different place if the founding fathers didn't find a backbone. The world could be a very different place if Wilberforce, sat down in silence. The world would be a very different place if Edison was not given the opportunity to succeed because he failed too much.
Who paid for your freedom?
It was a question. What if God didn't send his son to live among us and bring truth and light into the world? What if Jesus chose to walk away from the cross when Pilate gave him a chance? What if Jesus said, "Pay attention to the laws of the Pharisee. You are all going to Hell anyhow!" Instead he said, "Love the Lord God with all of your heart, soul and mind, and your neighbor as you would like t be loved." These were the greatest commandments, the two that everything else falls into place.
Emo Science versus Triology
Emotional Science doesn't want to offend anyone. Social engineering is run on legalism and political polls. Yet if Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, Wilberforce and Churchill would have just "tolerated" King George; The Redcoats; The Slave Trade; The Nazi's; Saddam Hussein, and if Jesus looked around and said- "It ain't worth it," and ran the other way, the tape would break in the midst of automatic rewind. And Satan and his force of evil rule a dying world.
The candle lit at the Flushing Armory is snuffed out after one of the men hears footsteps going by. Out on the streets there is an open market, Asian and Latin Women being sold in chains along with African American men and women in a place that would have been one of the final places on the Underground Railroad, had someone fought for freedom. While "war may be hell" it is hard to think of a more hellish experience than progressive slavery. "Hail Satan, and tolerate your neighbor," is what the rulers say. Yet on this day, progress is evident by the Solar Panel Farms that are popping up all over the colonies, including right here in New Amsterdam. The mud caked streets in every territory in the remaining Continents is a grim reminder that the only thing free in this cold world is what you can steal.
