The Covetous Prayers

Prayer is an appeal, an application. If you apply for benefits, deeming that your neighbor must pay for your welfare through the authority of men who call themselves benefactors,144 then you will and should become nothing more than human resources, at the whim of those elected to rule over you. The greatest threat to liberty is the offices of voters steeped in a desire for benefits, even at their neighbor’s expense.

“You have rights antecedent to all earthly governments: rights that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws; rights derived from the Great Legislator of the universe.”145 But you may sell yourself a slave to gods of your own making by consent, and seal your bondage in debt.146 Free societies are dependent upon the charitable virtue and nature of its members, not the ability to extract contributions at the point of a sword or gun.

It is a violation of the perfect law of liberty, of charity and love to covet our neighbor’s goods through governments.

Abraham, Moses, and Jesus taught the precepts of liberty, but modern churches, synagogues, and mosques have rejected God and failed the people they were meant to serve. We will not be free until we free our neighbor from the whim of our own desires.

“Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways [from] the ancient paths, to walk in paths, [in] a way not cast up;” Jeremiah 18:15
