The Curse and the Contract

Why are we subject to the ordinances of men? Why are we under tribute? Mankind has consistently gone into bondage and under the authority of other men who make laws, compel offerings, regulate the lives of the people. They become subject by application to obtain benefits and their contract and covenants to guarantee security.

“And to you who are troubled [contracted125] rest [tolerable captivity126] with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,” (2 Thessalonian 1:7)

According to all the works which they have done since the day that God brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day the people have returned to bondage.127 The people in the camp of the golden calf (at the foot of Mt. Sinai) were going back into bondage. In Egypt all gold was in the treasury and they were bound under a central authority of that government. The people were no longer free but bound and their loyalty is secured.

“He who contracts, knows, or ought to know, the quality of the person with whom he contracts, otherwise he is not excusable.” 128

It is that power of contract that has allowed men to return to bondage and ignorance can be no excuse for those who chose to receive benefits at the expense of their neighbor.

“No State shall… impairing the obligation of contracts”129

“From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.”130
