Gideon Redux

25 Now it came to pass the same night that the LORD said to him (Bret), “Take your father’s young bull, the second bull of seven years old, and tear down the altar of the state that your people have taken, and destroy principled pluralism (multiculturalism) that is produced by it; 26 and build an altar to the LORD your God on top of this rock in the proper arrangement, and take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the image which you shall cut down.” 27 So Bret took ten men from among his servants and did as the LORD had said to him. But because he feared (Bret had always been plagued by cowardice) his father’s household and the Radical two Kingdom men of the church who propped up the city of man by their “theology” too much to do it by day, he did it by night.

28 And when the Radical Two Kingdom men of the church who propped up the city of man with their “theology” arose early in the morning, there was the altar of the state, torn down; and the principled pluralism (multiculturalism) that it produced was beside it, and the second bull was being offered on the altar which had been built. 29 So they said indignantly to one another, “Who has done this thing?” And when they had inquired and asked, they said, “Bret the son of David has done this thing.” 30 Then the Radical Two Kingdom men of the church who propped up the city of man with their “theology” said to David, “Bring out your son, that he may die, because he has torn down the altar of Baal, and because he has cut down the principle pluralism (multiculturalism) that it produced.” 31 But David said to all who stood against him, “Would you plead for the state and principled pluralism? Would you save it? Let the one who would plead for it be defrocked by morning! If the state is god, let the state plead for himself, because his principle pluralism has been torn down!” 32 Therefore on that day he called him Jerubstate, saying, “Let the state plead against him, because he has torn down his principled pluralism.”

Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.
