Political Language

Pure

“Blessed are the pure in heart: for
They shall obtain mercy.”
Matthew 5:8.

Certain words are not used often in the English language, but the fact of the matter is that a specific word may be found again and again in the Bible. One such word is “Pure”.

When we go to the dictionary the definition can be quickly read and understood. There are several meanings that can be found.

You can read this in a thesaurus or a dictionary. Here are some of the descriptions that give us what pure means:

Clean, limitless, spotless, clear, unmixed and virtuous.

Like so many words they can have several meanings. In recent weeks and months, this “pure” concept has more and importantance. We can go into several areas of the word pure.

 

Here is a saying that sums it up – “We are all flawed.”

 

Most people can’t comprehend that we need to seek to be virtuous in every aspect of our lives. It’s common for most people to not struggle to be pure in their bodies. For years, it’s been known that the use of tobacco products and smoking is toxic to us.

 

Forty years ago, it was a common physical problem because everyone inhaled tobacco smoke.

 

Here are several ways it caused health problems: heart destruction, Cancers of the lung, yellowed skin and horrible breath.

We finally used massive advertisements to stop that nasty habit. Finally, the average American knew that it was destructive and we needed to keep our body pure.

 

DRAIN THE SWAMP

Political LanguageFor too long people had been following the remarks of politicians. We allowed the corrupt people that called themselves politicians and/or Democrats to have massive influence over our nation.

There have been so many lies told to us that the effect has caused the people to destroy the Marxist-Socialist liars to control too much of our lives.

 

It may have been a mistake for Donald Trump to say, “Drain the swamp!”

 

A swamp does have some good qualities. A cesspool has none. It is a place where toxic material accumulates. For the most part, Liberals control the Senate and the House of Representatives. This is the reason Donald Trump must confront, insist upon and push forward any program that he feels is for the good of all of us.

Obama Care, otherwise known as “The Affordable Care Act”, will never be rescinded. The insurance companies and legislative bodies are on the take. The Government has bestowed much graft upon them. The Free enterprise system is a joke.

 

It is DIRTY – when they allow the insurance companies to influence the government legislature.

 

These people who claim that ‘influencers’ use the free enterprise in a good way, are liars. They are a hindrance to honest government. We should seek to have a pure economic system. The fact is, if it was pure – it would be rid of corruption.

 

ECONOMIC CORRUPTION

There were at least three groups Jesus condemned. There was more distrust of lawyers than almost any profession. In Luke 11:46, tells us about this.

“And he said, woe unto you
Also, ye lawyers! Fr ye lade men
With burdens grievous to be borne,
And ye yourselves touch not the
Burdens with one of your fingers.”

 

It was probably a lawyer who condemned Paul at Caesarea even though this man was termed to be an orator. Read Acts 24:11.

“Because that thou mayest
Understand, that there are yet but
Twelve days since I went up to
Jerusalem for to worship.”

 

The second group were the bankers He took a whip after these evil men as told in Mark 11:15.

“And they come to Jerusalem:
And Jesus went into the temple, and
Began to cast out them that sold and
Bought in the temple, overthrew
The tables of the money changers,
And the seats of them that sold
Doves.”

Even today these people are despised. Why? The Federal Reserve System picks the pockets of all of us. When bankers are accused of a crime – they seldom go to jail. Banks desire for governments to borrow funds. You see money controls. If you have a credit card and do not pay it off monthly – then, the bankers control you.

The third group were judges. In our system, Federal judges are almost impossible to remove. Most state judges fall into this form of work. Jesus saw who they were in Matthew 23:26.

“Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse
First that which is within the cup
And platter, that the outside of them
May be clean also.”

 

It would be an ideal system if lawyers, bankers and judges were to become pure. They are not!

 

Recently, a lawyer told me he had a case before several appellate judges. He had learned that a well-known univiersity had been giving these judges free tickets to the football games. This man has sued the university. Did the judges recuse themselves? NO!

The legal system is not pure. It has huge breaches. The Government must be protected at all costs. Pure justice this side of heaven is a horrible joke. There isn’t even an attempt to be pure.

 

PURE PEOPLE

When people become ill, there is an immediate parade to find a pill. The medical profession has taught people that if there is a pain – then there is a pill. They have the false belief that if there’s a disease, then, there’s a pill or some method to cure the disease.

In normal situations, God doesn’t tell us the solution. God instructs us in prevention. His approach is to eat the right way. He tells us what to take into our bodies to prevent – but seldom to cure. He wants our bodies to be pure from disease.  He has a list of what not to eat and here is what we can eat:

  • Lamb, 
  •  Beef,
  • Goat,
  • Certain birds,
  • Pigs,
  • Dates,
  • Honey,
  • Certain fish,
  • Nuts,
  • Fruit,
  • Milk,
  • Cheese, and
  • Grains.

This instruction is on how to have a pure body.

 

CHURCH PURITY

When Martin Luther, the monk, rose up five hundred years ago it was not so that the Roman Catholic Church could break up into another organization. He wanted the teachings of this group to follow the Holy Scripture.

He proceeded to teach the just to live by faith and not that the just shall live by works. This man had the idea that those followers of Christ must live by the purity of the Bible. No one had the right to do otherwise. He sought purity.

All church organizations have gone through a beginning which had the same fundamental concepts. They changed things because the following second and third generations didn’t stay with the fundamental concepts. The ways of the world were brought into the group.

 

It has always been said that we must make the Church more modern to attract the world. This is a lie.

 

Here are a few that are well known. The Methodist Church has become very liberal in its theology. These people teach their leaders not to adhere to the totality of the Scripture. There are no elders. They do not immerse. Infants are sprinkled. Mission work is nonexistent.

The Presbyterian Church is another one of the groups who have shifted to a liberal view. Some of them will accept the homosexual’s life style. There are other false teachings among them.

The Methodist’s and the Presbyterian’s preferred not to be pure in the Biblical sense.

The Disciples of Christ are liberals with words. What these people did have was to give birth to Jim Jones. In the beginning, with the leadership of Alexander Campbell, Barton W. Stone, and Walter Scott – the Christian Church (the Disciple’s of Christ), was Bible orientated.

Then, from about 1900, the change happened. Who knows what these people teach? The purity of the attempt to restore the first church has vanished. The Restoration Plea is something of the past to these liberal Socialists. Their numbers have dropped. Good riddance.

The examples which are above, only prove the Church cannot stay pure. Paul in Titus 1:15-16, wrote about purity.

“Unto the pure all things are
Pure: but unto them that are defiled
And unbelieving is nothing pure; but
Even their mind and conscience is defiled.
They profess that they know
God; but in works they deny him,
Being abominable, and disobedient,
And unto every good work
Reprobate.”

It is impossible for the church to remain pure. Shysters, liars, and thieves come in and want to set aside purity. It is always evil that destroys the beginning of God’s word.

 

PURE PEOPLE

When we see what is happening in our society we know for sure that the values of another age are cast aside. Morality is no more accepted among the majority of the young. Look what is taking place:

  • Fornication is accepted
  • Acceptance of Marxism
  • Constantly living offended remarks,
  • Homosexuality is a norm,
  • Government is good,
  • Public school should be free, and
  • Education must not teach Christ.

We could list other evil ideas. Pure living is outdated when seen. There is given to us the view that nothing has any real spiritual value.

 

This way of life brings with it the final destruction of the following:

  • U.S. Constitution is outdated,
  • Two tiers of justice,
  • Politicians produce give away programs,
  • Older people should be put to death,
  • Unborn can be aborted,
  • No dignity in dress, and
  • Language can be filthy.

Remember, a pure life based on the Bible is pleasing to Jehovah God. In order to obtain an orderly society, purity must be accepted by people. Otherwise, one only has to see rebellion. conflict and division. The discipline is the United States in our time. Purity brings about unity. Purity brings about peace. Purity brings about a solid government.

 

The Old Testament teaches purity for a nation. The New Testament teaches Purity for the person.

 

CONCLUSION

  1. Seek to be pure before God.
  2. Know that when there is no purity; then there is chaos.
  3. Tell another of Jesus who was pure.
  4. Follow the only One who can assure you of purity – Jesus Christ.

 

KEEP THE FAITH!

 

HOLY, HOLY, HOLY! LORD GOD ALMIGHTY

“Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song to Thee be raised
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God ever glorious, evermore be praised!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who wert, and art, and evermore shall be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy Name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy; merciful and mighty!
Goe ever glorious, ever praise to Thee.”
