ANNOUNCER: Welcome to the Bible Law Course Program. This is a series
of broadcasts about The Ten Commandants, not as a means to salvation, but as a
code of conduct for Christians. In these programs we will show that all our
nations problems can be solved with the application of God given laws.
SPEAKER: Hello, while running for office, a United States Senator said,
"Don't let the forces of evil take over, to make this a Christian
America." That's right, a United States Senator, he said,
"don't let the
forces of evil take over, to make this a Christian America." This Senator
is not a Christian. Few Christians realize that agnostics, Humanists, and liberals look upon Christianity as evil. And don't get me wrong, I am not
criticizing the Senator. He is doing a fine job. A fine job representing the
atheists, the agnostics, and the Humanists.
And while I am not criticizing the Senator, I am criticizing the Christians
who voted for him. Without Christian votes, he could not have been re-elected to
the Senate, where he continues to introduce anti-Christian legislation. We
Christians need to wake up, wake up and realize, that a war is raging here in
America. A war of words, and a war of ideas.
A war against traditional values. A war against Christian values. A war
against, the Kingdom Of God. And we Christians are suffering defeat, after
defeat. Prayer is kicked out of our schools. The Bible is forbidden in our
schools. In-home Bible Studies are forbidden by the zoning boards. Christian
crosses and Christian symbols are being forced off of public property.
Television programs and movies, take every opportunity to ridicule Christians
and Christianity. And it's not that the enemy is so smart. We are losing the
battle, simply because, most Christians don't know, or don't care, that we are
under attack. Others have bought twin lies of, "separation of church and
state" lie and, "don't mix religion and politics."
But what good does
it do, to pray to God, to ask God to do something to restore prayer in school,
and vote into office the very people who vote against it? And what good does it do,
to picket abortion clinics, while voting for the very people who make abortion
Well, does the Bible have anything to say about government?
And does the Bible
say anything about qualifications for public office? The answer is, "Yes!" Many
Churches teach that politics is dirty, that Christians should have nothing to do
with politics, that Christians should have nothing to do with government. Some
churches even go so far as to say, it is a sin to vote.
Yet 71% of your Bible is about government! Sixteen of the first seventeen
books in your Bible are about government, about kings, and about governors. The
first five books of your Bible were written by Moses. Moses was not the head
of the church. Moses was the head of Israel's government. If Moses had believed,
as do many modern day Christians, he would have never gone to Pharaoh saying,
"Let my people go."
The books of Joshua, Judges, Kings, and Chronicles are about government.
They're about kings and governors. Joshua was political leader. A leader of the Israel
people. The Judges were men in government. Kings and Chronicles are about the
kings and their governments. The kings of Israel wrote several of the books in
your Bible. King David wrote Psalms. And King Solomon wrote Proverbs, Ecclesiastics,
and The Song of Solomon.
Then we have the book of Nehemiah. And who was Nehemiah? Nehemiah was not a
preacher, he was a governor. Nehemiah was the governor of Judea. The very same
office held later, by the Roman governor Pilate.
And the prophets, such as Isaiah, and Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, they were sent
to the governments of the nation. The prophets took God's message direct to the
The Book of Daniel is about government. Nebuchadnezzar and his kingdom, versus
God and his kingdom. And then in the New Testament, the gospel is about, not
just salvation, but also about the kingdom of heaven, Jesus Christ being its
king. Jesus Christ is both king and priest. As priest, he is your savior. As
king, he is your governor. As king, he involves himself in politics. And as
king, he involves himself in legislation. And listen to this, it is Revelation
ANNOUNCER: ": for thou wast slain, and
hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and
people, and nation;
And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the
SPEAKER: Yes, your Bible says, we Christians shall reign on the earth. And
listen to this from Daniel 7;
ANNOUNCER: "But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and
possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever."
SPEAKER: The saints will take a the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for
ever. The Senator's side will lose the battle! But only after we Christians wake
up. Now listen to this New Testament verse. It is Matthew 11:12;
ANNOUNCER: "And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom
of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force."
SPEAKER: Imagine that, the kingdom of heaven suffering violence, and the violent
taking it by force. The violent taking the kingdom of heaven by force. But
Daniel said, when the dust settles, in the end the saints will possess the
kingdom, and the saints will keep it forever. So the battle of words, and the
battle of ideas, it rages here in America, just as it did in Old Palestine.
Humanists and Atheists often rebuke Christians with, who are you to impose your
morals on me?
These hypocrites say that while in the very act of imposing their morals on
Christians, only they do not call it morals. They call it politics, or
legislation, or public policy. But my friends, all legislation, all law
making is religious. It makes no difference whether we are talking about traffic
laws or abortion. All law making is religious.
Let's think about government, the nature of legislation, and three important
words, words that are associated, not with religion, but with government. The
three words are, laws, statutes and judgments. Here is a verse using these three
words. Here is Deuteronomy 7:11;
ANNOUNCER: Deuteronomy 7:11 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and
the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them. (KJV)
SPEAKER: Another verse is Deuteronomy 8:11;
ANNOUNCER: Deuteronomy 8:11 Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in
not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I
command thee this day:
SPEAKER: All through the Bible we hear these three words, laws, statutes and
What is a law? What is a statute? And what is a judgment? One of the
commandments is, thou shalt not kill. To protect the public from harm, even
death in traffic accidents, the legislature might write a law saying,
"thou shalt not speed." All criminal laws are based upon The Ten
Commandments. Thou shalt not speed is a law based upon the commandment,
"thou shalt not kill." Just as soon as the legislature says, "Thou shalt not speed upon city streets," the question becomes, what is speeding?
The sixteen year old know-it-all does not have the same ideas about driving,
as the 65 year old retired businessman who lost his wife in a car accident. So,
the legislature has to define speeding. The legislature defines speeding by
writing a statute. "Thou shalt not exceed twenty miles per hour in a school zone."
That would be a statute, under this no speeding law. The statutes of the law
make known, and make plain, what act is forbidden. Otherwise, everyone would be
free to decide for himself what speeding is.
You see, you just can not write a law saying, "thou shalt not
speed," and then let everyone decide for himself what speeding is.
Now what about the law breaker? The legislature, or Congress,
they make provision
for the lawless by a written judgment. The legislature might write a judgment
saying, "anyone exceeding the 20 mile speed limit in a school zone shall be
fined $5.00 for each mile over the speed limit." The judgment is the
punishment to be imposed upon the law breaker.
Your representatives in the legislature write laws that way. They write laws
with three parts. First, the basic law. Second, the statutes define the law's
requirements, and finally the judgments, or the penalties for breaking the law.
And God is just as smart as your legislators. The gave us basic laws. Then he
defined them via statutes. Finally, to deal with the lawless members of society,
God gave us judgments.
The law is the rule to be obeyed. The statute is the
explanation of the law. The judgment is the penalty for breaking the law. It's
as simple as that.
When it comes to statutes and judgments, Christians want things one way,
while non-Christians want just the exact opposite.
Abortion is an example. Christians want statutes and judgments that make
abortion a crime. Non-Christians want to make abortion a right. Non-Christians
want statutes that make picketing an abortion clinic a crime to be punished.
But the non-Christian's statutes and judgments are called politics, while the
Christian statute and judgments are called religion. But they are both religious
points of view. And both are political.
Every time the legislature writes a law, the legislature is imposing
morality. The question is, will the legislature impose Humanist, atheistic
morality, or will the legislature impose God's morality?
A kingdom is controlled by laws. Laws are enforced by the police and courts. In
ancient times, in ancient Rome, Christians lost the battle. The Roman Senate
wrote statutes and judgments that made Christianity a crime. The Christians in
Rome paid the price for staying out of government. Christians died in the
Coliseums. Christians died while the atheists, the agnostics and the humanists
Now let's talk about America's history. America's Christian history. When on
vacation, if you visit Jamestown, Virginia, you will find the remains of a very
old church building. This is one of the very first churches built in America.
And there is a plaque in this church. The plaque states, "that on July 30
of 1619,Governor George Yeardley convened in this church building, the first
elected legislative assembly in the New World." The Virginia Legislature
met here in this church. No separation of Church and State here. The Virginia
legislature held its meetings inside this church building. And not only did the
Virginia government hold its meetings in a church building, the people of
Virginia denied public office to anyone who denied the Christian religion.
Virginia denied public office to anyone who denied the inspiration of the Bible.
And you don't need to take my word for it. You can read all about it in a
United States Supreme Court decision. The case is titled, The Holy Trinity Church
vs. The United States. Justice Brewer wrote the court's opinion. Justice Brewer
spent page after page proving, that our nation is a Christian nation. Justice
Brewer, speaking for the Supreme Court, he mentions state constitution after
constitution, document after document. Justice Brewer proved beyond a doubt, the
United States is a Christian Nation, that Christians founded its original

MUSIC: Our Father's God.
SPEAKER: Welcome back. You are listening to The Bible Law Course Program. We
are talking about religion and politics. We were talking about the fact that
most of your Bible is about, not salvation, but about government. That kings and
governors wrote many of the books in your Bible. And we had just finished
talking about a United States Supreme Court decision declaring, that the United
States was a Christian Nation.
In early America. If you were not a Christian, you could not hold any office
at all. That's just the way it was. Slowly, that high standard has been watered
down. Watered down till today, anybody can stand for election, anyone can hold
office. The situation is changing rapidly, if the Separation of Church and State
propaganda continues to be successful, in the future, Christians will be the
only group, the only group excluded from government. The wicked will have the
kingdom. That is what the future holds for us, if we Christians don't wake up
and do something about it.
Does the Bible say about qualifications for public office? Where did the
founders of our government get the idea, that non-Christians were not qualified
to hold office? Well, it's in the first chapter of Deuteronomy, listen:
ANNOUNCER: (9) And I spake unto you at that time, saying, ...
(13) Take you
wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them
rulers over you.
(14) And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast
is good for us to do. (Deuteronomy 1:9-14 KJV)
SPEAKER: Moses said, take ye wise men, men of understanding, and known among
your tribes, In this verse we find three qualifications for public office, wise,
understanding and known.
For the most part, we do not really know the people we vote for. We know just
as much as the television and newspapers want us to know. Many good men get on the
ballot, but you may never even hear their names. The news media's first line of
attack against good Christian candidates is silence.
This verse in Deuteronomy began with "at that time." The verse had
to do with an earlier event. The earlier event is recorded in the 18th chapter
of Exodus. Listen to this;
ANNOUNCER: "Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men,
such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them,
(22) And let them judge the people at all seasons:" (Exodus
SPEAKER: Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people, able men, such as
fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness. And who meets
this, "such as fear God," qualification? Certainly not the atheist,
not the agnostic, not the humanists, and not even the self-righteous liberals.
Those who fear God are Christians. The people who founded our government knew
their Bibles. That's why they wrote their laws, and their constitutions, to
require all office holders to be firmly persuaded of the truth of the Christian
religion, to require a belief that the Bible is inspired.
The founders of this nation made 'such as fear God' a qualification for public
office. But the atheists, The liberals, the agnostics and the Humanists, they don't
like that. When they get into power, and when they get into positions of
influence, such as newspapers, and television, and government, they get even. So
today, people listen to the newspapers and TV talk shows, and conclude that
being a Christian, somehow, seems to be a disqualification from office.
Christian candidates are pressured, pressured to promise that their Christian
ideas will stay in the church, and not be brought into the statehouse. But the
Humanists, and atheists are never asked if the irreligious beliefs will be kept
out of government.
The television constantly reminds us, if by chance a Christian is elected, he
must keep his religion in the pew and out of the statehouse.
How times have changed! In early America you could not hold office, unless
you were a Christian. And public office was forbidden to atheists. Now the
non-Christians and atheists are taking over, and trying to make it illegal for
Christians to hold office.
When the founders of this nation came to this land, they brought the Bible
with them. They believed that this land was given to them by God. Listen to
these verses from Deuteronomy 17;
ANNOUNCER: (14) When thou art come unto the land which the Lord thy God
giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I
will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;
(15) Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the Lord thy God shall choose:
one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set
a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
SPEAKER: Here God says, when you come into a land that I give to you, you may
not set a stranger over you, which is not thy brother. Now what does that tell
you? Well it tells me at least this much. Brethren, to obey this Bible verse, I
can not vote for a non-Christian, And Why? Well simply because he is not
"of my brethren".
Now, I don't know about you, but if a candidate wants my vote, he must to
first accept Jesus Christ as his lord and savior. Many Christians are upset that
prayer, the Bible, and The Ten Commandments are forbidden in our public schools.
They kneel in the pews and pray about it. But how can we expect God to answer
that prayer, when we vote for the very people who make prayer, the Bible and The
Ten Commandments illegal?
Christians are opposed to abortion. A few picket at
the abortion clinics, and get beat up by the police. What good does it do to
pray about it? And what good does it do to protest, while voting for the very
people who make abortion legal?
Wouldn't it be better, to run for office? An office where you can have a part
in determining what is legal, and what is illegal?
The police treat the violent protestors of the liberal left with kid gloves. But
at the abortion clinics, the very same police beat up on the non-violent
Christian protestors. The police excuse their actions with, "I'm just doing
my job." How can we solve this problem? Well, the police work for the mayor
and council. The police enforce the statutes as written by the legislature.
So simply take some time away from the television and collect signatures at the
shopping center. Get on the ballot. Stand up for Jesus by asking the people at
your church to help. Ask them to put up signs. Ask them to make contributions.
Select someone to run for the council, or mayor, or even the Senate.
Then when you are elected mayor, then you can tell the police what to do, and
who to arrest. You can write the laws, Christian laws in place of humanist and
That is the American way. Those who run for office run America. If Christians
do not run for office, then someday they will run for the border. It happened
in ancient Rome, can happen here in modern America.
If you don't like the books used in our public schools, don't complain to
people who will not listen anyway. You and other Christians can run for school
board. Then you decide what our children read, and you can be the one to turn a
deaf ear to the liberals, a deaf ear to the humanists and agnostics.
It's the America way. Those who run for public office, run America. And
America needs Christians in Congress. America need Christians in the Mayor's
office. America needs Christians on the school board. You, your church, and your
pastor have a decision to make.
You put Christians in government, or you let the wicked rule over God's
people. So, let's select candidates, choosing men who are wise, understanding
and known. Able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and
place them on the ballot.
My friends, Christians are to rule and reign with Christ. But if all that you
have heard is the gospel of salvation, and about Christ our high priest, then
you have missed a big part of your Bible. Christianity does not stop at getting
You need to hear the rest of the story. The rest of the story about our king

MUSIC: Lift Up The Name Of Jesus.
SPEAKER: Welcome back. You are listening to the Bible Law Course Program. We
are talking about Religion and Politics. In Ezekiel 22 God complains about the
problems in the nation, problems that can be easily solved by having good men in
government, and Ezekiel says this: listen
ANNOUNCER: The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised
robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the
stranger wrongfully. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the
hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy
it: but I found none. (Ezekiel 22:29-30)
SPEAKER: The problems were the same as ours today, oppression, robbery,
poor. God looked to see who was doing anything about it. But, he found none. So,
God destroyed that ancient country. Let's not let that happen to America.
You can help turn things around. Housewives can get on the zoning board. Pet
lovers can run for dog catcher. Any office, any office in the hands of a
Christian, is better than in the hands of a atheist, a humanist or an agnostic.
Let's look to the future. Here are a few words from your Bible about Jesus'
return. It's Matthew in 24;
ANNOUNCER: "And they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of
heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great
sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four
winds, from one end of heaven to the other. (Matthew 24:30-31)
SPEAKER: After the angel looks over your town, will the angel report back to
Jesus saying, "Lord I sought for a man among them, that did make up the
hedge, and did stand in the gap before you, and for America, that you would not
And when Jesus asks, what did you find? Will the angel answer? "I found
Or will it be, when the angel looks at your town, at your church, at you,
will the angel report back, "Lord they are all over the place! The saints
are occupying, The saints are ready for your return."
Think how good it will feel, how good it will feel, to stand proud before
Jesus Christ our returning King and say, "Lord I stood in the gap."
And how wonderful it will be, when Jesus answers.
ANNOUNCER: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been
faithful over a few things, I will make you a ruler over many things. Enter thou
