Part 10:   Free Speech: The First Amendment

 

In the name of Almighty God, Master of the universe Ruler of all the earth

 

Editors Note: Beloved those that are Free in Christ are Free as the birds that fly. Meanwhile the sun comes in the morning and goes as the midnight sun looms in the horizon. Let not any heart of God be troubled as the ditches are made for the unrighteous to fly over and for the unrighteous to fall.

Psalms 7: 15: “He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.  (Also see the case of Haman in Esther 5: 14 and 7: 10).

 

Greetings Brethren,

 

Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere. To those that believe in the Bible as the supreme authority that governs all of humankind. In this we give thanks to God the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us the straightway.

 

Beloved it has been long times in the fire as to our God given right to Free Speech. Meanwhile the First Amendment for the righteous has been challenged but there is no expiration in Freedom for the Christ like. Academic freedoms were questioned at our earliest graduate school experiences. However the fury of those that rebuke moved to an ending (less) height when we became born again.

 

Persecution of the righteous the God sent messengers will be an eternal death sentence to the ungodly. We pity the fools that reject God and Christ and those commissioned in His service. Only someone locked and blind on Stupid cannot see Heaven.

Proverbs 1: 7: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

 

We See Timeless Freedoms In God (1-5-09)

 

I kicked and squirmed as I was born for the

womb was too confining as I wanted to come

out to see all of nature and the great Creation

that Almighty God had bestowed upon all

that had sense to see.

 

All the days of my life as I remember I stood

up for what I believe is right. Many people

stood idly by and said nothing. However some

criticized as they just went with the flow while

others commended you in private as they were,

 

Afraid to say anything publicly. I never thought

about Free Speech or the First Amendment

but I did note that there was much prejudice

thinking and racism ran rampant as the rights

of the Po and the Black underclass as a young,

 

Man prior to the Civil Rights Movement was often

challenged as Jim Crow was actually White as

Black like me had separate quarters and drinking

White water and flushing a White commode was

taboo.

 

So was the school closed? But due to the backlash

that resulted from forced integration the neighborhood

school should have survived. How could it when

some groups that championed Civil Rights got into

the spite Whitey game and lost sight of quality,

 

Education. So education was dreamed as the

utopian dream by the Black underclass and we

strived to learn our letters and numbers. I went

to four different elementary schools not because of

segregation but due to the Black and poor just,

 

Trying to survive and maintain adequate housing on

$15 and $50 per week salaries. Learning in the Numbers

and English grammar I remember I was at my worst.

But I read every book I could get my eager Black

hands on.

 

The house had books as Mama and Daddy both

could read and loved to reflect on things in books.

Can any avid reader of books leave not with some

sense of freedom? Do those that read consistently

believe in the rights of free expression?

 

I didn’t know or had ever verbalized those things

as a young Black boy growing up in the south in

Tennessee but somewhere, yes somewhere Free stuck

in my subconscious mind. I loved to read and it went

with me everywhere.

 

I soon loved the debate as my Father was a great

debater and as a young man we, my Father and

brother’s had great debates on politics. We were

a house full of jack leg lawyers as we became the

neighborhood philosophers.

 

But the Spirit of learning and analysis of facts and

conclusions with some meaning were upon me. I

guess this is why I never felt I should turn around on

Truth. So as my education turned to mis-education

I lingered in the Truth.

 

I saw the miscues and vowed to see the real Truth.

As an undergraduate student there were few challenges.

But as the student matured and as I gained entrance

to graduate school I was smitten by an alleged Black

Studies Program.

 

I now first really came into competition with those that,

sought to deny you freedom of expression, academic

freedoms and the First Amendment were trampled on.

All Black was not good as they dared you to say that

someone Black actually denied you the basic rights of,

 

Free speech. I had not come to realize and coin the phrase

Black on Discrimination at this time however it would soon

be forthcoming. Sadly and regrettably many although Black

like me had been commissioned by agents of Satan to report

and cause havoc in the ranks of the intellectual who was the,

 

Real Black man, woman boy and girl. Character assassination

was the game. So was the dismissal of your worth to any place

of employment. So many Black Lists came about and I never

saw not one supporter come to my aid. As of this day I know

not one former colleague that I shared books with in many debates,

 

Study rooms, classrooms and libraries that has ever brought me

any comfort as an honorarium, research grant, teaching, or lecture

opportunity that has tenure and rank at any school Black or White.

What are they still afraid of? But if I thought the constitution had

been suspended I had seen nothing until I came to Christ.

 

Was this good or bad. It was of course good as the bad was

that I thought the greatest problem confronting the Black

community was the assault on Black history. However through

my conversion I found out the greatest crime against humanity was

the distortion of the historical record (Bible) of the church.

 

Although the censor the fools multiplied I now knew why

they came… the Bible told me so. The Spirit thus far has allowed

me a greater level of comprehension and analysis of these ungodly

problems. Thus “The Methodology For Obtaining Truth,” will forever

be upon me and allow me to see God and the Freedoms He brings.
