LOOKING PAST FOOLS AND SHAME: 2008
Update FreedomJournal: We still struggle to post the On-Line FreedomJournal.
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).
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
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
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
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
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.
