Taegan has decided to write a blog every day describing the Liberty First life. So, in lieu of our regular #Point2Ponder I will be posting Taegan’s #LifeLibertyLaw blog.
I joked the other day that Taegan is like my Doctor Watson. I find these blogs very entertaining and inspirational.  I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures as much as we love living them. ~ In Liberty, KrisAnne

Who Do You Serve?

by Taegan James

We have a disproportionate view of authority in America. We think that just because someone is in a position of power over us, we must submit to them no matter what. People will say, “they know more than we do,” or “don’t challenge the status quo,” or even “there’s nothing we can do about, so just obey.” This is a slave mentality. Why would we simply submit to anything and everything just because someone in authority told us to? Churches teach and Christians believe that since Jesus said “render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s” that we must obey whatever government tells us to do (Mark 12:17). Wake up Christians. If your pastor teaches you the way to be subservient, he must not know how to read the Bible, or he is intentionally leading you astray.

You do not have to submit to authority that is oppressive! If someone tells you that even Jesus said to “render unto Caesar’s what is Caesar’s,” they do not truly understand Jesus’s words. Watch this short video of KrisAnne on this topic. She puts it better than I could ever dream of writing.

This message is not just for the Christians! The examples here are from the Bible to show Christians that disobeying the law does NOT make you a bad Christian, but disobeying God in favor of man’s law will NOT be rewarded. Recognizing and resisting tyranny is something all people must know how to do. You do not have to send your children to freedom c42Common Core schools. You do not have to sign up for the Afforable Care Act. You do not have to serve customers that violate the beliefs your private business was founded upon. You do not have to submit to federal infringements on ANY of the reserved powers of the States. Why? Because that is oppressive and tyrannical government, and we will not comply. Who do you serve this day? Regardless of religious beliefs, let it not be despotic authority.

Pursuing truth and defending liberty, always.
