“No man can serve two masters…”
By Daniel Brigman Copyright 2013
Former Secretary of Agriculture under Eisenhower, Ezra Taft Benson, has said…the United Nations is “a Trojan Horse.” This is not an isolated opinion. Over the years the tentacles of the UN has been seen encroaching into American sovereignty. Today Obama stands as Head of the UN Security Council and President of our country. Putting aside the obvious Constitutional conflict of Obama holding two such positions for a moment; I ask…which one is Obama favoring? “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other”, Mathew 6:24. The obvious conflict of interest between the Godless UN Charter on Human Rights and the sacred Declaration of Independence is being thrown in our face every day of the Obama presidency.
In 1776, Thomas Jefferson was part of a five-member committee commissioned to write a Declaration to the World explaining the Colonists reasons to War for Independence from the British Empire. The other members appointed Thomas to write the draft. It was approved with minor cuts.
In the recorded history of the English language there are certain texts that stand apart as the greatest and most influential. Among these passages are the Psalms of David, the Lord’s Prayer, The Sermon on the Mount, and the inspired verses of Shakespeare and others. But certainly any such list would fall short if it didn’t include:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…”
These are the words written in the opening paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence—the unquestioned Charter of our Nation. This quoted section is one of the absolute foundations of our Republic. I would argue the foundation. The Declaration itself clearly states that our nation was founded acknowledging the grace of God, our Creator. The founders unified under this claim. To say otherwise shows complete ignorance or an atheistic agenda or both.
Last year, one of the Supreme Court Justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, gave an interview concerning the new Egyptian Constitution. In the interview she said that the American Constitution was old and outdated and thought more “modern” constitutions such as Canada’s and South Africa’s should be used as a model. I was floored. (Does it bother you in the slightest that she is supposed to be the guardian of a document she feels is inferior?) Examine the recommended constitutions and you will find something very interesting. Both are patterned after the United Nations charter on Human Rights. The UN charter and the Declaration of Independence have some startling differences. So much so that you could even say they are complete opposites.
The UN charter has a list of 30 points that all people are supposedly entitled to. In the 29th section (3) it says the following:
(3) These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.
Basically, the other “rights” listed, (which are fatally flawed to begin with) are subject to the will of the UN; the “rights” are not absolute and the governing UN is of greater authority than the People themselves. God is nowhere to be found and the charter has no basis in Heavenly principles. The Government is the highest authority under the UN charter. Quite sad.
The endowment from God and unchangeable power of Rights, which resides solely in the People, is what the United Nations is attempting to eradicate. If God is the one that gave you your Rights then how can any government take them away? Conversely, if they are not given to you by God then how can they be safe? This is part of the charter and mandate of our Founding.
“Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed the conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?” – Thomas Jefferson
If our liberty did not come from God himself then how can we have secure hold of those liberties in the first place?
The passing of the UN Small Arms Treaty is beyond disturbing. In veiled language and ambiguous powers the treaty would give the UN the alleged authority to confiscate every form of arms in the hands of private individuals. Obama has gushingly praised and promoted the treaty in support of the UN Charter and the exclusion of our Charter…The Declaration of Independence.
“The Declaration of Independence… [is the] declaratory charter of our rights, and of the rights of man.” –Thomas Jefferson
Of the “two masters”, the UN and the Constitution, we know which one Obama has chosen. Isn’t it beyond obvious at this point? The battle line is being drawn. Will we choose a Godless UN Charter where the “state” rules supreme or will we choose a Constitutional Republic where the Rights of the People endowed by God are unalienable? I ask you to decide where you stand on the issue. Your Country may depend on it. “As for me and my house we will choose the Lord.”
