“It is the submission only of the body, not of the soul. Humbled before the God who chastises him, the Calvinist remains the relentless judge of the despot who oppresses him. There are submissions more deadly to tyranny than insurrections would be.”
Emil Doumergue--Calvin la fondateur des libertes modernes – pg. 14
This may be the best quote I’ve read in a very very long time.
Christians in America submit with their bodies to the pagan state but their spirits burn hot against the state for its grasping at the prerogatives of God, for its effeminate attempt to provide temporal salvation, and for its ongoing purposeful attempt to reduce the citizenry to abject slavery. We may submit with our bodies but but such submission does not communicate that the wicked state rules us or sits in judgment of us. No – a thousand times no – we as Calvinists, sit in relentless judgment of the Despot and Usurper. The Calvinist knows that it is only a matter of time until God sets things rights and the Calvinist can patiently wait until that time arrives. Because this is so the Calvinist can laugh at the Despots usurpations and tyranny because the Calvinist knows that payday someday is coming down on the Despotic state. It is these kind of submissions that are more deadly to tyranny then a thousand insurrections would be. This kind of submission is the wind of behavior that will reap the whirlwind of certain coming insurrection.
