The Clueless Mob

This group has been around for a long time. When it came time for Jesus to be crucified, the clueless mob was there calling for His death. It says in:

          (Matthew 27:23-25)  “What crime has He committed?” asked Pilate.
         
But they shouted all the louder, “Crucify Him!”
         
When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was 
          starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I am innocent
          of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!”
         
All the people answered, “Let his blood be on us and on our children!”

The clueless mob has bought into the notion that democracy is the best form of government.  But what you see in the above scripture is pure democracy in action. It is nothing more than mob rule. It sentenced an innocent man to the cross without convicting him of any crime. We all know that the founding fathers of our great country had no intention of establishing a democracy. Pure democracy tosses law out the window and allows the mob to take over.

The Apostle Paul on his second missionary journey crossed the Aegean Sea and landed in Thessalonica. When his preaching began to make some in the crowd uncomfortable, as Honest-to-God preaching often does, the following action took place:

           (Acts 17:5)  But the Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters
           from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city.

Today in the world we see mobs in action whenever we turn on the news. People all over have learned that mob-led blackmail works – whether in the streets or at the ballot box. America’s founders attempted to form a Constitutional Republic which would allow a democracy-like system to work within the boundaries of a legal document called the Constitution. It worked well for awhile until some agenda driven politicians got involved.

The Constitution originally set up a balance for government which allowed for a popular vote for the House and state appointments for the Senate. The idea favored a legal system that gave input to the mob while honoring the commitments made to the various states. July 9, 1868, was a black day for each individual state in America when the 17th Amendment of the Constitution was ratified. The states lost their Senate appointment power which was given to the clueless mob. Thus the door was opened for America to become a mob-led democracy rather than a Constitutional Republic. We are living out that tragedy today. It is the basic reason that many of our states have secession petitions in circulation. We have passed the point of no return. We now have a mob elected federal government dominated by agenda driven forces.

 America’s founders used the Bible as the basis for law and Christianity as the basis for moral issues. This worked well until the mob took over. Honest-to-God civil rights come from God and so have a moral obligation. The dishonest civil rights we now have in America no longer honor God or Christianity – in fact – they honor the devil.  It is Christians who are becoming the illegal aliens in a country led by the Clueless Mob.  God help US(A)! Come quickly Lord Jesus!
