A True "Public Servant"



You Should Never Vote for
An Archist

Do you know who the "archists" are?

1. Jesus Forbids His Followers to be "Archists."

The clearest passage in which Jesus forbids us to be "archists" is Mark 10:42-45

But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, "You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. {43} Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant. {44} And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. {45} "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."

The word translated "rulers" comes from the Greek word from which we derive our word "anarchist." Jesus clearly says His followers are not to be "archists."  In fact, God hates archists.


2. God Hates Archism

Who Are "Archists?"

You're bound to find the word "archist" from time to time on this website. But it's not a word you're likely to find in any dictionary. It was a word that was created to make a point.

People sometimes criticize Kevin Craig for being an "anarchist." What they fail to realize is that Jesus commanded His followers to be "anarchists." He did this when He told them not to be "archists" (the English word "anarchist" = "a" [not] + "archist") but since no one knows what an "archist" is, they don't understand why true Christians are "an-archists."

Here are some more verses which use the word "archist." Do YOU want to be an archist?

Ephesians 2:2   in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

1 Corinthians 2:6-8 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. {7} But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, {8} which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Romans 13:1-3 Let every soul be subject unto the higher exousiai [pl.]. For there is no exousia but of God: the exousiai that be are ordained of God. {2} Whosoever therefore resisteth the exousia, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. {3} For archists are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the exousia? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against exousiai, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Colossians 2:15
And having spoiled archists and exousiai, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in Him.

Acts 4:26   The kings of the earth stood up, and the archists were gathered together against the Lord, and against His Christ.

John 12:31   Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the archist of this world be cast out.

Do YOU want to be an archist?
Do you want to be on THEIR side?


Surprisingly
This is the Most Important Issue
in American Politics Today

The biggest political lie in all of human history is
the myth that "archists" are good and their opposite is bad.

The fact is, archists are "the bad guys."
Those who oppose the archists are "the good guys."

You've been taught the exact opposite.

What Do "Archists" Do?

Archists attempt to convince us that when things don't go the way we would like them to go, we can resort to violence to change matters. Even if nothing will be changed by violence, that's OK, because making them suffer who made us suffer is called "justice." Archists thus believe in institutionalized vengeance.

Archists believe in force and conquest rather than mere persuasion. When preaching fails to gain a convert, the archist resorts to violence or intimidation (threats of force).

In Mark 10, Jesus draws a contrast between His followers ("servants") and "the kings of the Gentiles" ("archists") who impose their will on others by force. Kings ("the State") claim a monopoly on the legal right to compulsion and violence.

The Bible clearly links violence and rulership. The Bible says Israel rejected God when they opted for archism (1 Samuel 8). Much of the Old Testament Scriptures describe this archist rebellion, denounce the violence and death it caused, and record the prophets' message of judgment from an anti-archist God. Whole books in the Bible chronicle the violence of the kings. God hates this violence-archism nexus, and when His patience is crossed, He will destroy all those involved in this "patriotism."

Genesis 6  Now it came to pass, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. {4} There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. {5} Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. {11} The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. {12} So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. {13} And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Above all previous centuries, the 20th century was characterized by:

  • Secular Humanism: Rebellion Against Christ the True Archist
  • Leviathan: Huge, centralized governments
  • Violence: More murders than any previous century. "Legal" murders.

True followers of Christ oppose violence as injustice.

But most Christians don't care about violence. Most Christians don't care about archism. They only care about "personal peace and affluence." They're just waiting around for the rapture, and if they can skim a little pork off the top of the archist barrel before they go, all the better. Their archist apathy makes God puke (Revelation 3:16).

Death by Government: The Chilling Statistics of Archist Democide in the 20th Century

Since Christ is the Prince of Peace, it follows that Christians are Pacifists (from the Latin word for "peace"). And since the State is institutionalized violence, it follows that Christians are going to be accused by the State of being "anarchists."

The most important reason for not being an Archist is not merely to point a finger at the bad things archists do, like killing, stealing, kidnapping, and committing other acts of violence. The most important reason for avoiding archism is the effect archism has on us. We hear the philosophers and theologians praise Jesus as a "great teacher," and everyone gives lip-service to the Sermon on the Mount. But when a pagan dictator threatens to raise our gas prices, Jesus takes a backseat to realpolitik. And everyone learns a subtle lesson: loving your enemies and forgiving one another is all well and good for our "private lives," but for public matters -- the "really important stuff" in "the real world" -- "national security" takes precedence over "the Great Teacher." Thus when someone wrongs us, we don't think twice before saying "I'll sue his pants off!" (See 1 Corinthians 6.)

From a Christian perspective, two things characterize pure religion. They can be summed up in the words of the Apostle James:

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this,
To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and
to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

James 1:27

Christian Non-archism is the "one pure religion." If you want to be the kind of person who spontaneously and from the heart has the compassion of Jesus, and visits the weak and afflicted, you must keep yourself unspotted from archism.

Your success at treating the most despised members of society with love and compassion is a divine indicator of your allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ. If you treat the "marginalized" and your "enemies" with contempt, those acts will be imputed to your account as though you had personally treated Christ that way (Matthew 25:31ff.).

For this reason, it is absolutely vital that you remain "unspotted" by the agenda, mythology, and weltänschauüng of the world of archism. The world-and-life view of archist culture is summed up in these phrases:

  • "Survival of the fittest,"
  • "Looking out for number one,"
  • "I'm not going to let him get away with that!"
  • "You can't tell me what to do!"
  • "Take this job and shove it!"
  • "I'll sue his pants off."

It is an impure religion of the worship of self, and the denial of Christ. It is the refusal to love even your enemy, and to follow Jesus to the Cross. It is the religion of Secular Humanism. As a product of government media and schools, this religion has left your spirit spotted and impure. You must get these ideas out of your head if you are to find yourself at Christ's right hand (Matthew 25:34). You must become "unspotted." You must become "a Christian anarchist."
