Pieces From The Past
Over the course of my time being a “patriot” and fighting to restore our country to what our founding fathers had in mind, I have seen many people complaining about their God given rights being violated and stolen from them; often referring to how the constitution protects these God given rights and a certain amendment; clause; article.
I don’t know about you, but I have many more God given rights than those that the constitution was intended to protect. Today we will cover one of those rights and its many forms and the many ways it can be violated.
Natural Law, God’s Law…broken down simply means; Natural: Inherent; basis in Nature, reality and truth; not made or caused by humankind. Law: An existing condition which is binding and immutable (cannot be changed). Now to violate these laws a living being or their property has to be harmed or damaged, if you can act without doing so, this is a right.
The truth is an important right, because without it you rob a person of the facts and by doing so, you are robbing them of the right to make a decision based on those facts. Now to some of you that my not seem like a big deal. Some times it may not be. Let’s take a look at it from the perspective of the lie, the receiver of the lie and what some of the outcomes of said lie could be.
An out right lie is just that. When a woman accuses a man of rape 99.9% of the time he goes to jail. If this is a lie, and it does happen more than you realize, that man is deprived of his good name, his freedom, possibly his family, his children and his home…you get the picture. The accuser, by lying has denied him his Natural God given right freedom.
You may think that if you lie to someone and they never find out there is no harm no foul. Wrong. Look at it this way.
**There is an old couple that has a storage unit, one day this storage unit gets broken into and a lifetime of precious belongings gets stolen. The couple dies before the theft is discovered. Does it make the theft right or any less of a violation of their rights to their property? Absolutely not. A lie, even undiscovered, is still a violation of the right to know the truth.
The excuse “what they don’t know won’t hurt them” or “it is for their own good” is frequently used to justify a lie of omission. Keeping something from someone robs them of knowledge, and who are you to decide what will and will not hurt someone; what gives you the right to decide for that person? You are violating their right to choose. Another lie of omission is not speaking the truth when a lie is being told in your presence. Again, you are robbing the hearer of the knowledge of the truth, and yes, this can and will hurt them, maybe not right away but eventually it will.
The last type of lie I am going to address is something that many people do and encompasses many things including but not limited to: exaggerating the truth, making things sound worse/better than they truly are, insinuating things about people without actually saying it and twisting other peoples words. I know many in this fight for freedom have experienced this first hand but I am going to leave you with an example as well.
**I recently had an encounter with someone who appeared to be really helpful with their heart in the right place offering exactly what was needed for me at the time it was needed. It was a precise answer to prayer. So, a move was made on the assurances of this offer and that no matter what I would be taken care of; only to find upon making said move that it was all a very inflated version of the truth. Upon further inquiry there were many other exaggerations told to me by this person. Not only did this put me in a much worse financial situation but it hurt my heart deeply as I truly had grown close to and trusted this person. To make things worse, when this person was approached about it twice now, this person has deflected onto others saying they were told something else. Which was not what was told to me earlier on. You see lies tend to get bigger and bigger in a web shape as you have to keep telling more to cover up the previous one and if you don’t remember what you said before…you get caught in that web yourself.
The lie/exaggeration itself violated my God given right to the truth but the consequences of that lie are extreme financial distress impacting the way I chose to live my life and putting my health at much greater risk than it already was. Just the opposite of what I was trying to achieve.
So you see, though many do not see how a lie, no matter how big or small is a violation of someones Natural God given rights, it can have a big impact. The right to Truth is, in my opinion, one of the worst rights that you can violate because without the truth you cannot make decisions that will not harm yourselves.
As in my situation, had the full truth been told, no embellishments to make it sound better than it was, nothing omitted, the decision to go forward would not have been made and no harm would have been caused.
The truth sometimes can be hard to tell but it is always the right thing to do, you never have to remember what you said because the truth just is. You never have to worry about someone not trusting you because you have lied to them, now, they may be angry at you because you told the truth…but they will hopefully get over it, if not were they worth having in your life? I would rather die knowing that I was honest and have my Father in Heaven smile at me, at a life well lived, then the alternative.
We must start to practice and protect the smallest of our Natural God given rights in order to restore all of them.
