Greetings, Fellow Christians and other Friends, 
 
        You have not heard from me for nearly two months because, unknown to me, my email was coming in fine, but not going out.  It just disappeared with no clue to me.  A longer story than worth relating here, but when I reinstalled my software after a crashed harddrive about two months ago, the wrong server port number was installed in Outlook Express.  So from that time, no one was getting anything I sent.  Some clues began to filter in, and the easily correctible problem is now corrected. 
 
        So probably two Emmaus Newses never got delivered.  My messages of the past eNewses are posted in the Emmaus News Library (at http://www.theroadtoemmaus.org/EM/EmNws/0eNwsArts06-07.htm). 
 
        And you can go online to http://www.theroadtoemmaus.org/WhtsNw.htm and survey the last several weeks of material which has piled up on the What's New Page, just waiting for you. 
 
        For almost a year now, I have been going down to the Mexican border near a small (American) town, Boulevard, CA, to Camp Vigilance, on land rented from a very friendly RV vacation spot, a couple of miles from the border fence (what there is of it).  We are very welcomed by the Border Patrol because we help fill in gaps in their very gappy ranks (thank you, Pres. Bush).  We do nothing but spot for them and radio in the information as to where we see illegals crossing.  We are also trained in first aid to help anyone we find who needs it, but otherwise, we make no contact with the aliens.  It is a sad, sad story, people being deceived and deluded by their own government to become fodder for the Globalist war on sovereign boundaries.  See the piece below  on "14 reasons". 
 
        The reliance on massive foreign labor is one of the common signs of a culture on its last legs.  I do not mean honest immigrants, I mean the control of the situation by Globalists who want borders wiped out, who run the corporations who say they desperately need the immigrants to do the work Americans will not do, etc.  They want to turn America in to another 3rd world country where they control the population economically and politically.  The evidence for all this is available.  See the "Conspiracy" section of the Politics Library.  There has never been a time when conspiracy was not rampant, there has never been a time when those with the capability (real or imagined) were not conspiring for control of the known globe.  And today is no exception. 
 
        The difference today is the success of the mind-control program (government diseducation, the media, and the political parties).  We Americans and been sold the consumerist mentality -- i.e., to keep the Globalist international corporation coffers full.  And we are quite happy with it.  Well, we hate it, and we love it.  Like an addiction.  We are often ashamed of it, but 99% do nothing about it.  OK, I'll give you 95%.  We LIKE our government Nanny.  We have no conception of the freedom for which our founding fathers fought.  And, worse, we have no conception of the Way of the Cross, how to die well.  And, not knowing how to die well, we know not how to live well.  Death makes cowards of us all.  Except for an occasional 13 or 11 year old girl such as at the Nickel Mines Amish community some months ago. 
 
        We cannot survive long on this diet.  The disaster looming over Europe will hit us in about 50-75 years --  unless we get serious with the Lord Jesus Christ.  Either Jesus is Lord, or civil government will be lord.  Choose this day whom you will serve. 
 
        I have written and commented about the growing understanding of the scam which is the IRS -- and am universally met with disbelief and apathy.  "Well, the IRS will win in court..."   Where is our backbone???   We are being scammed and people do not rise up in anger?   What kind of men are we???
 
        Well, see the piece below on the IRS losing in court.  Not the first time, and for sure not the last.  Some bold folks who are willing to risk losing are beginning to win.  And the results, if we get faithful to God and each other, will be telling. 
 
        Edwin Vieira (see below) is one of those bold and creative writers (one of those 2 to 5%) who is laying part of the groundwork for the renewal of America -- a restoration of the Constitutional Militia.  If you value your political freedom, read it.  And get equipped yourself.  And learn how to put the military into a Biblical/Christian context.  God, not our government, owns the military. 
 
        The founding fathers rightly feared a standing army more than almost anything else.  And we are illustrating why.   We have come to the point where we can no longer trust that our (standing) military will side with the people in a contest against centralized government.  The signs are not good.  And the government has been steadily conditioning the military and the police (where they can get at them), to see us citizens as their wards, not the supreme officers of the state. 
 
        And the Church is an utter disgrace -- spending most of its time fighting with each other (where is there a major denomination which not fracturing?).  That, too, has been on the agenda of the secular globalists -- infiltrate the Church (Antonio Gramsci style) to disable it from any possible spiritual warfare against the enemies of God, against the enemies of truth, righteousness, and love. 
 
        There are Godly globalists --- Jesus is Lord.  The secular folks are too late.  The global leader has already been chosen.  But the Western followers of the King of kings and Lord of lords are currently not much help to the Kingdom of God and not much threat to the kingdom of Satan.  That will change, but it appears that nothing short of a severe persecution will make the change. 
 
        Some wonder, no doubt, whether I am focused too strongly on political and social issues, and neglecting the Gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ.  Sorry, it is both/and, not either/or.  Only a saved people will be able to sustain their political freedom. 
 
        So pray, plead, beg that God will do in us whatever He has to do in order to get us, both personally and corporately, where He wants us to be -- intellectually, morally, and spiritually.  Even if it hurts -- a lot.

Greetings, Fellow Christians and other Friends, 
 
        The last two weeks I have been out of action, occupied getting my car transmission rebuilt, costing lots of bucks, and my harddrive, which crashed, reset up with software, costing lots of time.  That is normally a two day job, but with complications, it has been nearly ten days (OK, so three of which were spent at the border with the Minutemen).  Things are just getting moving again. 
 
        I had planned for some time to rebuild a whole new hard drive from scratch and then back it up just in case I needed it to start over again.  With a back up, getting started again is about a half hour job, not two to ten days.  O well.  In all things, God is good.  I did have a rest from lots of other things like keeping the website up and publishing newsletters.... 
 
        Immigration continues to be top news.  Thankfully, the amnesty bill was scuttled.  It will be back again, but perhaps the American people will continue waking up.  If you think immigration is "not a problem", see the Immigration Gumballs video with link below.  You will not view the matter the same again.  We cannot invite more people into our midst than we can absorb without destroying the very thing for which the honest folks come in the first place -- a stable culture where they can find a good life.  Open immigration is NOT the way to solve the problems of the third world poor.  Helping them with their own economy and political wisdom under Jesus Christ is.  But we have to repair our own breeches first. 
 
    I have thought that having a five year moritorium on immigration, as some have called for, was a bit too heavy.  But the Gumball Immigration presentation has changed my mind.  We had better shut down the borders until we get control of our own culture -- including dethroning the globalists -- who are the real enemy right in our own midst.  We must name them, flush them out into the open, force them to expose their real agenda, and get them out of government.  Fast.   
 
        Card sharks fool people with a moving distracting hand while the quiet, still hand does the deception.  Globalists are the quiet hand.  They cleverly remain out of sight, letting all of us folks out here noisily fight among ourselves, while they continue quietly to control the direction of the West.  That must be stopped.
 
        The situation in California, and probably other border states is approaching disaster proportions.  Some 18 hospitals were closed down last year because they were forced by law into bankruptcy by having to take patients who could not pay for themselves.  Mostly immigrants from Mexico.  The state of California has to start one new school every day of the year, on average to keep up with the growing numbers of illegal children (of course, we are not doing it, so classrooms get more and more packed...).  Many of those coming here have no intention, just like many Muslims, of integrating.  Their intent is to take over.  We have schools now in Los Angeles started specifically to train their young to do so.  This is multi-culturalism???  This is betrayal, deceit, and invasion. 
 
        How much of the current travesty and nonsense would not be happening if government were not in charge of schooling?  ...if parents controlled the education of their children.  How many children would be shooting their own classmates?  Where would sexual promiscuity be being graphically taught to children?  Almost nowhere.  Parents love their children and want to set them free with honest education to live their own lives.  Governments want to control them. 
 
        Government is rightly about control, that is why its main role is to be a referee in the social/commercial game.  And that is why it should never be a player in the game of commerce and providing the goods of life.  Least of all, providing education, for the same reason as for religion.  Both form the hearts and minds of the people -- never, never, never to be coerced at gunpoint, as we do with government schools.  (Gun point?  Yes.  When in the 1800's Massachusetts dictated government schools for everyone, people out on Cape Cod refused.  They were "persuaded" by the militia -- at gunpoint.  Your truant officer enforces ...  at gunpoint.) 
 
        People object, "Well, without public schools our country would be Balkanized!   split into a hundred warring groups!"   And what is happening now???  We are headed down the road for another civil war -- our constitution is being destroyed by our own government -- our new taskmasters who want to run every aspect of our lives -- including what food supplments we can take (see Mannatech articles). 
 
        That is astonishing.  But more astonishing is the apathy and culpable, sinful ignorance of American Christians who are not willing to pay the price for honest truth-seeking.  Whose God is their bellies (consumer mentality). 
 
        See below the article on The Misery of Diversity.  Common sense might just be breaking through.  Unity comes through an honest free market of ideas.  That cannot happen with government monopoly-control of education.  It will always become a mind-control system, not for setting free. 
 
        Lesson to be learned:  get yourself educated (NOT by the government) so that you are skilled in assessing the reliability of the "experts".   NEVER let the experts take over your decision-making.  They are your paid servants to give advice, not to run your life.  Including government. 
 
        There are a few articles below on a company called Mannatech, which produces food supplements called glyconutrients.  Some of those supplements are already on their way to changing the whole face of medicine and health care.  Read these articles.  I have tested Ambrotose.  It is a winner.  My experience can be found at the Mannatech Page (see below). 
 
        See also the commentary on the 20-20 program on Ambrotose, my response, and the responses of others, including the CEO of Mannatech.  Quite a story of media, globalist Big Pharma, and government collusion and abuse against we, the people
 
        If you have any problems with your immune system or with degenerative or autoimmune diseases, including cancers, you need to get informed about glyconutrients, Mannatech, and Ambrotose.  A nutrient which strengthens one's immune system is worth investigating for anyone on the face of the earth. 
 
        Justice Scalia writes an article on the 10 Commandments below.  A good start, but much more can be said. 
 
        And Islam gets its share of articles.  There are good ways of engaging Muslims, honestly, gracefully, and compellingly.  Ditto for homosexuality.   These are winnable battles for persons who are intellectually, morally, and spiritual mature. 
 
        But the people we really need to engage are the Globalists, the leaders (as Eisenhower warned) of the military-industrial complex, those now international corporations and banks rich enough (through national and internation grand theft) to buy out just about any political force around.  They are not honest secular folks, they are aimed at world control, and they are specifically anti-Christ.  Their God is their belly (feel-good), and they will do anything they think they can get away with.  Anything.   Their only serious enemy is a renewed Biblical civilization.  So if you are a serious Christian or Jew, expect to encounter trouble. 
 
        On the other hand, it is they who should be scared, not us -- if we are secure in Christ.  No force on earth can stand up to a mature, healthy Christian community which has no fear of death and understands Godly freedom -- both personal and political.  Such Christians won the Roman Empire, and we can win back Western Civilization -- if we are sold out to Jesus Christ -- who (the globalists are too late) has already been appointed World Governor.

Dear Fellow Christians and other Friends, 
 
        Just by the way, I count as "other friends" generally any truth-seeker.  Christians can make common cause with any truth-seeker in maintaining the open public arena of debate, even though we may disagree on issues.  That attitude certainly ought to be a primary foundationstone of any relationship among Christians -- but often is not.  That public arena of discussion is the place where evangelism ought to take place, the place where we are set free to make our own decisions about the matters before us. 
 
        I think that to be part of the burden of I Timothy 2:1 ff. where Paul urges us to pray for kings and all in high position "that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way..."  because God "desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."   A primary role of civil govt is to keep the peace just so that the issues of life and truth can be openly and honestly discussed.  That is what our US Constitution was written to provide -- not the systematic mind-control which always becomes the policy of government-controlled education, and not the legal exclusion of religion from public policy, another part of mind-control. 
 
        That free public arena provides the ground where honest pluralism can happen -- everyone is invited into the debate, not because everyone's view is right, but rather to find out which view is right.  That is what science is about.  Including the science of  honest politics. 
 
        The pseudo-pluralism of so-called "liberal democracy", which is neither liberal nor democratic, which thinks that one can live by feeling good rather than acting and relating rightly, is a cover up for a hidden totalitarian agenda -- as we see happening all over the West.  When homosexual advocates are striving for power, they are all about "inclusiveness", but when they get into power, they are totalitarian -- as in "hate crime" laws, which are not about protecting homosexual persons, but about shutting down open discussion.  The pseudo-liberals (those who do not liberate) of today claim to be the party of the people, but they distrust the common man and want big government elite to make decisions for us.  Those elected elite will soon become our slave masters if pseudo-conservatives (who cannot conserve anything) allowed it to continue.  It is my opinion that the homosexual folks are being used as cannon fodder by the globalists as tools for the destruction of Western (Biblical) morality. 
 
        Only under the law and grace of God can genuine responsible ordered freedom be sustained, that is, freedom where the rights of others to enter the discussion are respected.  That was built into our Constitution, which is being trashed by the people who are using the homosexual agenda.  Homosexualist leaders do are not protecting their constituents, they rather want to shut down criticism of their position.  If they cared about their people, they would above all, insist in open discussion of the truth rather than sell them out to a compulsive, lethal addiction.   
 
        But the attack is being promoted in many ways, e.g., through "open borders", which is promoted, not to help the poor, or to help the economy, but to import buyable votes, and to promote world control by the globalist successors to what Eisenhower warned was the "military-industrial" complex.    See item below on "What is Biblical Government?"
 
        I hear many people ranting about "ain't it awful!!!" yet very few offering any substantial way to turn things around.  The piece below about "How to Win..." is one of my attempts to point to a solution.  There are solutions, real solutions.  But winning is not mostly about "them" and how awful they are.  It is about how incompetent we have become, about becoming a new kind of people, people who can speak the truth in love, who will do so at any cost to themselves, people who can get up to a microphone or a bully pulpit or stand before someone ranting and speak truthfully and gracefully
 
        That means people who have died to themselves and so found themselves in God, who have walked the way of the cross sufficiently to become truly dependent on, and obedient to, God.  Trust and obey.   If I am dependent on and obedient to anything in the world, that thing will control my life.   God has no interest in controlling us, He wants to set us free to join Him with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength.  My decision to follow Jesus to the Father has to be a freewill gift.  No one but God can set us free to do that.   Amazing grace....
 
        Chapter III of Personality, Empiricism, & God is now online -- "Creation: a Dialogue with God".   Don't try to read this without reading the prior chapers, as it will probably make no sense.  But I believe that the cosmological argument for God (reasoning from the fact that the world cannnot explain itself to the existence of God) is a logical and compelling case.  It alone can supply the foundation for empirical science (a fact of history as well as of logic).

Dear Fellow Christians and other Friends, 
 
        Big News!   The first volume of a Personalist Cosmology in Imago Dei is getting ready, under the title, Personality, Empiricism, and God (PEG) The preface and first two chapters are online (rough and ready, but substance all there).  See link below.  
 
        Vol. II will be called Yahweh or the Great Mother? (Y or GM?), hopefully out sometime in 2008. 
 
        PEG began as my D. Phil. thesis at Oxford (1964) on the subject of science and theology, showing the logical reasons why science could not have arisen without the Biblical background, and why inductive reasoning requires the Biblical God in order to make sense at all.   It has been sitting on my shelf all this time, but turns out to be very relevant to the Evolution vs. Intelligent Design debate raging around us. 
 
        (See Rodney Stark's book, The Victory of Reason, a sociologist's interpretation of why science and the free market arose only in a Biblical framework.  Medieval scholars have known for a long time that the Middle Ages was not a "dark age" from which the secular Enlightenment rescued us.  It was a hotbed of intellectual and spiritual ferment, leading to both the rise of science and the development of a democratic republic under God.)   
 
        A "personalist" cosmology is one in which the basic entities of the cosmos are persons, not things, not atoms, electrons, quarks, snarks, and not essences or ideas.  The Biblical worldview has always been either snubbed from without by persons who think the Hellenic philosophical tradition is the only way to go, assuming that basic realities are impersonal, abstract, and ultimately unknowable, and/or compromised from within Biblical ranks by persons who were taken in by the Hellenic view.  (For an excellent summary of how the Hellenic view undermined most of Christian history, read Nancy Pearcey's Total Truth.
 
        Y or GM? will follow up with the theological issues, and a more detailed comparison of the Biblical worldview with the secular/pagan worldview. 
 
        Biblical theology collapsed during the late 1700's and all through the 1800's, and was thrashed during the 20th century.  But there are signs that Christians are regaining their intellectual credibility over the last few decades.  Biblical theology must be rewritten to answer the challenges of modernity and post-modernity.  That can be done by mining Scripture itself, not by compromising to conform to the norms of secularism or neo-paganism.  If we do not accomplish this task, we can count on remaining in the backwaters of Western civ.... as it collapses into oblivion.  
 
        Some months ago, I had promised a review of a book, Cracking the Code, by Peter Eric Hendrickson, on how the IRS Tax Code has fraudulently interpreted the statues and persuaded America that we are all required to hand in a 1040 on April 15.  
 
        There are court cases in progress, and being pushed, which rely on arguments such as his, so we ought to be hearing more in the near future.  Aaron Russo's documentary, From Freedom to Fascism,  is another example of the same kinds of claims, and which I highly recommend.  See links below.

Dear Fellow Christians and other Friends,
 
        The world at play is a sad sight.  Especially when God's own people, the Judeo-Christians, cannot stand up and speak the truth in love.  The homosexual movement continues onward.  That is not due to the strength of that movement, but to the dysfunction of the Judeo-Christian community.  
 
         It is due also to the fact that the globalist one-worlders (who have a river of wealth being siphoned off the public arena into their tills, and much of the wealth of global industry at their disposal) are using both homosexual people and the Muslims for their own ends. 
 
        That is evil and cruel, no matter how much you might disagree with homosexuality or Islam. 
 
        It cannot last forever.  And the globalists in the end may find that they have gotten hold of a bear (or two) by the tail when the two parties in question discover what is happening -- and find themselves out of control.  Certainly Islam is something globalists would not find compatible other than as a club by which to beat what is left of Biblical civilization.  They are being used to create one more crisis to keep people distracted, and another excuse to centralize power. 
 
        All this is a brilliant execution of the Hegelian-Gramsci strategy of creating an antithesis to a thesis with the intent of controlling both sides to control the outcome, the synthesis.  Globalists of the 20th century were known for having funded both sides of most of the conflicts, including the Bolshevik revolution, WW I and II. 
 
        These people, in other words, are evil minded.  They will stop at nothing they think they can get away with.  And they have the public pretty much befuddled, fighting side issues, not the real enemy.  And not giving  testimony to the real Savior. 
 
        Until we Christians stand up and can give a truthful and graceful testimony that Jesus is Lord, we will continue down our present path.  Most Christian denominations today are consumed with important infighting, and have no time for minor issues such as survival of Western (Christian) Civilization. 
 
        All that leads me to believe that one of our main tasks is the rewriting of Biblical theology so that it can stand up toe to toe with any other religion or philosophy in the public arena.  Helping to do that is what I believe to be my calling, and what the Road to Emmaus is about.  The theology that came out of the Reformation conflict, on both the Protestant and Catholic sides, failed to see what God was doing and ended up opposing reason to revelation -- the worst mistake the Church has ever made
 
        But the fundamentals are taking shape on the Road to Emmaus, and I will be pointing to them as they come on line.  But you can begin with looking at  Worldview issues (very imcomplete),  Ethics issues (quite complete), Homosexuality: Good and Right in the Eyes of God? (do you want to win the sexuality wars?), and  Biblical Inner Healing (a Biblical view of psychology and human nature). 
 
        All of these address issues from the Biblical worldview, which can stand on its own in any public debate.  It would -- if Christians knew how to handle evidence and were able to reason well in public.  The evidence is overwhelmingly on the Biblical side of every significant issue.  So it is our own fault that we are losing and continue to swirl around in the backwaters of western civ. 
 
        Some of the reading will be long and hard.  But not to worry.  It is going to be a long and hard war, so you will have plenty of time. 
 
        Tyranny over education and terribly destructive sexuality are a large part of the content below.  Not easy or pleasant reading.  But we either face the facts and force the public to face the facts, or we continue to go under.  That means the Way of the Cross (see "Dying a Successful Death".  If pleasure, comfort, and peace are more important to you than freedom and truth, you will be useless in the battle.    So let's get on with it
 
Resurrection Blessings, Earle Fox

Dear Fellow Christians and other Friends, 
 
        First of all, three big issues: 
 
1. READ THE BILLS ACT
 
        In the 1990's when I was living in Ambridge, PA, I was working with a group led by two men who had discovered (a) that few state legislators ever read the bills they passed, and (b) also did not write their own bills, that the bills were written by a special agency designed to do that.  So the legislators neither wrote nor read the bills they pass to create laws imposed upon We, the People.  The two campaigned to get legislation passed to compel legislators to both write and read the bills. 
 
        A good friend, Jim Babka, is head of an organization called Downsize DC, with the intent of doing just that, bringing our government down to the size intended by the writers of the Constitution and the people who voted it in.  Essentially, that means limited to being the referee for society (not a player in the game), caretaker of the public space, and defender against enemies foreign and domestic.  The federal government has no constitutional authority for the vast majority of laws it makes and projects it sponsors and funds (at our expense) -- e.g., welfare, education, federal reserve, the IRS, and much of its meddling in commerce.
 
        One of the main projects of Downsize DC is the "Read the Bills Act" (RTBA), which will require legislators to read the bills they point at the rest of us.  The bill is already before Congress, and will likely get a lot of verbal support which will wither when the vote comes.  So there needs to be considerable pressure from "We the People".  That is where Downsize DC comes in.  They provide a means of focusing opinion on those kinds of issues.  Visit www.downsizedc.org, sign on for their email newsletter, learn their simple system, and make your opinions known to your legislators.  Sufficient pressure requires lots of people doing just that. 
   
        Jim's e-letter keeps you informed about many items before Congress.  Well worth looking at. 
 
2. THE MILITIA AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
 
         In another direction, I just received a copy of The Nation in Arms, which is Vol. 1 of Constitutional "Homeland Security".  Author Edwin Vieira is advocating the revival of the militia as indicated in the Constitution.  The militia has fallen into disrepair, and largely coopted by the Fed, which makes it useless for the purpose for which it was intended -- namely to provide the citizens the coercive capacity to discipline a central government which had gotten out of control.  The only parallel of which I am aware is the Swiss system of cantons which have something like a canton militia.  
 
        Americans are behind the 8-ball on just about every issue before us -- about 50-75 years behind dying Europe.  There is not a single issue in which Christians are taking the offensive, or are even talking about it.  Christian failure to understand Biblical government is a tragic result of our anti-intellectual "tradition" of the last 5 or so centuries.  See my article on Vieira's work. 
 
3. GLOBALIZATION OF AMERICAN EDUCATION
 
        Of all the issues before us, this one is the second most important of all (the first being our spiritual integrity).  When we lose control of the education of our children, we lose control of our future.    Hitler mocked the parents of those who objected to his policies -- You are irrelevant, he declared, because I have control of the minds of your children, so the future belongs to us...
 
        We are in exactly that position -- we have given our children for over a century to teachers dedicated to the destruction of our Biblical faith and of our democratic republic under the God of that faith.  They understand that a spiritual renewal means the end of their plans, so they have been planning (yes, as in conspiracy...) for well over a century to control the minds of the people, beginning with the defenseless -- the children -- the children of parents who have lost their faith and their courage and common sense to stand for their faith.  I.e., almost all Westerners, including Americans. 
 
        Evidence?  Christians are losing about 85% of their children to hostile beliefs.  We do not know how to pass on our faith to our children.    That is a tragic fall into spiritual self-destruction.  And globalists are making ready to spring the final trap. 
 
        So read the article below on that subject, and visit the website for the Commonwealth Education Organization which is ringing the bell on this issue.    And get your children out of government education...! 
 
        Those are the three BIG ISSUES of this eNewsletter.  There are others below.  See especially those in bold type.
 
        Note also that I am updating my D. Phil. thesis, Personality, Empiricism, & God for publication.  It will impinge on the evolution vs. creation debate significantly, so please keep this (and that issue) in your prayers.

Dear Fellow Christians and other Friends,
 
        The BIG NEWS for Anglicans (Episcopalians are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion) is the strong discipline administered to the Episcopal Church at a recents Primates' conference at Dar es Salaam in Africa.  (Primates are the leaders of the local national churches.)  While the Western parts of the Anglican Communion (AC) have almost all jumped ship from the Christian faith (they claim to be "reinterpreting" it), the African and Asian Anglicans are almost universally solidly on the side of orthodoxy.  These cultures have not yet faced the full onslaught of modernism/secularism, so their support for orthodoxy is very helpful, but at the same time not always to the point. 
 
        This onslaught was generated by the failure of Western Christians to respond to the secular "Enlightenment", which has successfully portrayed Judeo-Christendom at out of date, arbitrary, anti-intellectual, etc.  Sadly, their picture all too often fits reality.  Christians have often acted just like that.  But that is changing as Christians regain their intellectual credibility. 
 
        The Primates at Dar es Salaam have required the Episcopal Church to let them know by September 2007 whether they will comply with a request to have a moritorium on consecrating homosexual persons as bishops.  If they do not so agree, there will be severe consequences, probably generating either a rejection of their attendence at the every-ten-year Lambath conference of all the bishops in the world -- or -- a walk-out by the African and Asian bishops from the Anglican Communion. 
 
        This will necessitate an emergency meeting of the General Convention, or at the very least, the House of Bishops.  There will be one terrific fight.  Some value the unity of the AC, others value more the ordination of homosexual persons. 
 
        Most conservatavely thinking persons are rejoicing at the strong stand of the Primates.  But I think Geoffrey Kirk below issues a fair warning.  The capacity for the pseudo-liberals to smooze their way through things is astonishing.  Mostly because the conservatives do not understand what is at stake, they do not understand how to defend their own faith against the tactic of "dialogue to consensus", or they are cowardly.  They do not understand how to "dialogue to truth".  On that issue, see below, "Dialogue in Darkness...." which documents the two opposing strategies. 
 
        We are losing America.  The drift in America toward totalitarian government continues.  As with the Episcopal Church, so-called conservatives (with a few exceptions) are unable to mount an offense (as in "the best defense is a good offense").   The unconscionable government abuse of border guards becomes increasingly obvious, even an admission of having lied in the prosecution of two officers doing their duty.  This could not happen without the consent of the very highest levels of leadership -- I mean the White House, and those globalists behind the scenes who control the President. 
 
        Bush has again supported the homosexual agenda, promoting homosexual groups in the UN.  I see no reason for considering Bush a faithful Christian, or a faithful American.  He is supporting policies which are leading to the total downfall of our Constitutional order under God.  He imposes strict "Patriot Act" laws on citizens, yet opens the borders to let in just about anyone who wants to come in. 
 
        I see two possibilities.  1.  Bush knows that there is no danger from the Muslims.  That could happen only if there were collusion between him and his globalist cronies with the Muslim terrorists.  I suspect that the globalists are using the Muslims for their own ends to foment crises to implement their global order.  The Antonio Gramsci approach.    Or, 2. he does not care about the terrorist danger because he and the globalists are so compulsively focused on bringing down the sovereignty of America to implement their globalist new world order -- of which Bush has spoken numerous times.    I think #1 is the more likely because there is support of Islam in our own government run schools, the acceptance of Muslim military chaplains (see below), and Islamic prayers at Democratic (globalist) meetings (see below) -- which could happen only with the consent of our globalist overlords.   
 
        On the oaths being taken with the Koran, see the article second from the end below with link to David Barton. 
 
        The treasonous "North American Union" continues apace, without congressional or public input.  Bush ought to be impeached for his betrayal of our constitution.  If we had a Congress with backbone... 
 
        See the articles by David Kupelian & Joseph Farah -- two of the best Christian writers in the public arena.  Clear and powerful. 
 
        Mandatory vaccine in Texas???   Mandatory psychological exams for school children???  This is not about health, this is about control. 
 
        For more on the control issue, see the We, the People law suit coming up before the Supreme Court -- about the right of the people to petition the government for redress of grievances.  The courts have consistently denied that right -- the fundamental right which keeps government subservient to the people.  A LOT hangs on this one.   Get on your knees, repent of your sins (you want to be heard, right?), and pray for these people and this case and the Court. 
 
        On the good side, note the possible candidacy of Ron Paul for President.  A very, very long shot,but it would focus the debate on reality whether or not he won.  And perhaps coalesce the forces for truth for the long haul
 
        God knows what He is doing.  He has not lost control.  He is continually sifting all of us. He put the Hebrews out on the back side of the desert "to see whether you would obey my commands".  He is doing the same with us today.  Will we obey Him in this situation, here, and now???  Will we lay down our lives for Him, here and now???  In these very circumstances???
 
        God is raising up His new Gideon armyAre you ready?

Dear Fellow Christians and Other Friends,       

The news abroad that Congressman Ron Paul might run for president is the most encouraging news on the political scene that I can remember in a very long time.   He is still, apparently, in the research stage, and not yet finally decided.  But the possibilities are enormous.  See first two articles below.  The BIG ISSUE is whether Christians and Jews will get their political ducks in a row, and learn what Biblical government really is. 

 
        The Hate Crime law is again in Congress, another attempt to take over public discussion (along with Senate Bill #1, and its silencing of local lobbying groups).  Call your legislators and tell them what you think (202 225-3121 - & give name of legislator). 
 
        The pseudo-liberal mindset is essentially totalitarian because they (like the Muslims -- as per the Pope's remarks) do not hold themselves accountable to reason.  They just want to feel good -- which means, they want the rest of us to scuttle our reasoning so that we become easy marks for takeover and mind-control.  That, my friends, is what the US public school system has been designed for since the very beginning with Horace Mann in the 1830's in Massachusetts.  And it is succeeding.  From where did Horace get his brilliant inspiration?  From the most militaristic nation on the planet in the 1830's - Prussia.  He was interested in controlling, not educating, students.  And he did a super job of selling it by playing to the fears of people. 
 
        Muslims and "liberal democracy" globalists are both interested in control, not peace, not righteousness, not justice, and not love.  They both reject submission to reason and to open discussion of issues -- which are the mainstay of both Biblical religion and honest politics.  The primary difference between the Muslims and the pseudo-liberals (modern-day globalists politically) is that the Muslims do it by force and terror, the globalists do it by stealth.  But globalists are willing to use Muslim terror to destabilize a society to accomplish their ends.   Both are utterly ruthless. 
 
        Note below that even Jews are raising warnings for Christians to  WAKE UP.  They, of course, are familiar with the signs of approaching tyranny.  We Christians are unbelievably naive and apathetic.  Perhaps the Ron Paul candidacy will wake up a few. 
 
        Two border patrol agents have gone to prison --  for doing their duty.  And the President refuses to give them a pardon.  This is deliberate policy.  No way could it be accidental.  The news has been all over the internet, and people have pleaded with Bush.  But two innocent agents are paying the price for the globalists to have their open borders.  If that is not betrayal by our president, what is? 
 
        The article on the defensiveness of multiculturalism is a simple piece of logic (if you have not given up your intellect), and it seems more and more people are waking up to the fact that multiculturalism, with its subversion of truth, will be both totalitarian and defensive, not vibrant and free.   Only in Christ can we sustain either a vibrant, joyful life, or our freedom. 
 
        On the good side, read the piece below on Holland's new spiritual revival.  Very small and hidden away so far, but there and growing.  The Muslim 2x4 over their heads and the sight of their own people incapable of responding has perhaps wakened some of them to reality.  Religion matters, who is the true God matters.  Same processes happening here in America, but, as we are about 50-75 years behind Europe in the decline, we may be a bit behind in the waking up as well. 
 
        We know that in the end, Jesus wins, not just because we "have read the end of the book" (which is, I think, an incompetent response...), but because we have begun to see and experience the presence and power of God in our own lives

Blessings, Earle Fox

Dear Fellow Christians and other Friends,
 
        The new year is off and running, with many persons are doing their best to make it go one direction or another.  My predictions are not cheerful if you are not standing solidly on the Hand of God and obedient to His Voice.  My thoughts on New Years Day are expressed below on 1.1.
 
        Living through the death of a civilization is, as we say, an "interesting" experience.  Someone wanted to find out how Jesus conducted funerals, but discovered that He did not do any.  He did resurrections.  Resurrection is my long-run prediction for Western Culture, but I think it will look quite different when it all shakes out, and we are able to pick up the pieces.  I think we are in for very difficult changes.  The Biblical foundations of America have been too severely damaged to predict anything else.  That coupled with the incapacity of the Church (the conscience of society) to even address most of the issues spells hard times ahead.  Church and State have both lost their moral and spiritual compasses, a condition which began centuries ago (see The Tragic and Disastrous Failure of Western Christendom below).   
 
        In my annual Christmas letter to family and friends, I noted five decisions we all make, like it or not, just because we are human.  There is a Biblical way to make those decisions, and then there are the world's many ways of making them.   The five decisions are the subject of a chapter in Biblical Inner Healing which just came out.  The five decisions are:
 
                1. to be a truth-seeker at any cost to oneself;
                2. to rest the weight of one's being on the Hand of God, the only safe place for it;
                3. to take responsibility for one's own actions, reactions, behavior, etc., to be open and honest;
                4. to be obedient to one's reason for being, given by the Voice of God;
                5. to do all of the above with a loving spirit. 
 
        Well or poorly, we will make those decisions.  If we follow Jesus on the Way of the Cross, they will come out right.  If not, not.  Well made, they lead to strong, free, responsible personalities -- children of God who can stand before anyone, any time, any where -- just like Jesus.  That ability to be ourselves right out in front of God and everybody is the primary power of the Holy Spirit which Jesus promises.  All other gifts of the Spirit are built on this one.  When Christians catch onto this, things will change.  The Church will grow up and begin to conduct its public testimony again, and the spiritual war we are losing will change directions. 
 
        The largely Calvinist theology which America inherited from Europe in colonial times proved inadequate on both sides of the Atlantic to deal with the rising secular "Enlightenment".  It had devolved into the moral hypocracy and judgementalism portrayed in The Scarlett Letter for growing numbers of Americans.   We have yet to replace it with anything substantial which we can, with intellectual, moral, and spiritual integrity, bring into the market place.  That, I believe, is THE MAJOR task of Western Christendom -- and, that it can be done. 
 
        If we resolve our theological disorder and malaise, we will again turn the tide.  But time is growing short, and the cost of mounting an offensive is growing exponentially as the other side gains more and more control of politics, economics, and, yes, religion, everywhere.  By the "other side", I mean (in its current chief expression) secular globalism.  The UN and all that for which it stands, our rebuilt Tower of Babel.  The Muslims are in on this, but not, I think, in the way we hear posted abroad.  See "Allah, Christ, & America" below. 
 
        The renewal begins with #1 above, being truth-seekers at any cost to ourselves.  My favorite example is Elijah on Mount Carmel (I Kings 18:19 ff.).  God is willing to put His whole case to an honest public up or down test.  Winner take all, no quarter asked or given.  The stakes are everything. 
 
        Will we join Him in that contest?  And what would that mean for each of us personally? 
 
        The articles below with a ** preceding are among my efforts to apply these principles and goals to our current situations.  I especially point to The Authority of the Bible in a Scientific World, which spells out  how we can assert the authority of Scripture with reason and grace, and, Defining 'Oughtness' & 'Love' which is my case for saying that God and God alone can provide any foundation for morality. God alone can obligate any other person.  If we can meaningfully assert the authority of Scripture in today's world, and if we can truthfully explain the Biblical foundations of morality, Judeo-Christians will be able to recapture the moral high ground from the current winners -- socialists/communists and other government centralizers of various stripes  --  the Tower builders. 
 
        Below are the articles posted since the last EMMAUS eNEWS.   You will find the whole list with many more at the What's New? page link below.
