By now you know that Derrick Watson, US District Judge for the District of Hawaii, has stopped Trump’s travel ban. You may not know that the basis for the ruling is NOT Trump’s executive order’s constitutionality, but rather Trump’s comments on CNN during the campaign trail.
In other words, candidate Trump said something back in 2016, which Derrick Watson didn’t like, and now the judge feels like it’s time for revenge.
The constitutionality of the judge ruling is in question – I don’t know what Trump is going to do about it. But clearly the Judge has overstepped his power.
But this Judge’s decision to stop the travel ban on the basis of some comment back in 2016 isn’t the worst part. There is a bigger problem here that I’d like to point out.
And no, I’m not referring to the possibility that another liberal judge might one day stop Trump from sending troops to the Middle East if doing so is in the best interest of our National Security. Yes, this would be a problem. And Watson’s ruling is a problem because he’s setting a precedent in interfering with the Executive Branch of government in its ability to protect Americans. But the problem I’m referring to is so much bigger than that…
You see, our Founding Fathers were right. They were CHRISTIANS who believed man is sinful in nature. The understanding of this key principle based on the Bible has created the most free and prosperous society the world has ever known. The understanding of our sinful nature on the part of our Founding Fathers is the REASON Americans are FREE.
Let me explain.
The Framers, as you know, created the division of powers: Executive, Judicial and Legislative Branches. They also created the division between Federal government and State and Local governments. And in fact, the Framers granted LIMITED powers to our government – State, Federal, Local, Executive, Judicial and Legislative. They all have limited powers according to our Constitution.
Why? Why did the Framers do that?
Because power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Our Founding Fathers knew that when you give too much power to ANYBODY there’s a high chance that that person will ABUSE his power. They gave us checks and balances BECAUSE THEY KNEW man is sinful.
And yes, man is absolutely fallen and inclined to ABUSE whatever power he has. History confirms this fact. Hitler, Stalin, Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Un – these are all examples of individuals with ABSOLUTE POWER and no checks and balances. They are also all MURDERERS.
When you remove the restraints from men and give them absolute power, their SINFUL NATURE prevails and they impose TYRANNY.
Liberals like this Hawaiian judge believe that man is not sinful, but rather good in nature. And society makes him bad. Man is a victim of society and he only needs a good government to rule over him. History tells us that’s not true.
Liberalism leads to TOTALITARIANISM
NOT BELIEVING IN OUR SINFUL NATURE LEADS TO TOTALITARIANISM
BELIEVING IN OUR SINFUL NATURE LEADS TO FREEDOM
When you understand this principle, like our Founding Fathers did, then you realize we need checks and balances so that we can all be free and prosper.
Liberals are not only opposing this travel ban – they’re jeopardizing your safety and YOUR FREEDOMS.
There is not one example in history where rulers with absolute power ever restrained themselves and allowed people to be free. Not one example in history.
The Hawaiian Judge is displaying signs of authoritarianism. He’s actually proving Christians are right.
He’s proving liberalism leads to abuse of power and Christianity leads to freedom.
The Judge doesn’t like the travel ban because of what Trump said in 2016 and he’s using HIS POWER to put YOUR LIFE at risk. That, my dear friend, is what totalitarians do. They have ZERO respect for your life. If you give this Judge more power, he’ll abuse it even more. If you remove all restraints from this man, he’ll turn into Hitler or Stalin.
In any case, God is in control. I don’t know why He’s allowing this judge to overstep his power. Perhaps He’s trying to take us back to our Founding Fathers' philosophy. Or perhaps He’s testing Trump. I don’t know.
But I do know that while it’s true that we’re all sinful in nature, we can also free ourselves from sin. When you reject Jesus, you’re a slave – a slave to your desires of power, money, women, sex, drugs, etc. But when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you’re FREE from all these demons.
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
