The Central Problem with Gregg Abbott

Several months ago, I got an email from Gregg Abbott (or his designate using his name) informing me of how ruthless he had been in imprisoning the citizens of Texas and how happy I should be for his ruthlessness against our people.  He also boasts of spearheading the placement of the Law of Moses Monument at the Texas State Capitol Building.

As I look at these two interrelated issues, I see a man who thinks he is serving Jesus Christ, while he is in-fact serving the Law of Moses and wrongly calling it the Law of Jesus.

You see, Jesus Christ spent his entire 3 1/2 year time in public ministry trying to get people out of the Law of Moses mentality and into the mercy mentality of a new conception of life called, "The Kingdom."  Case in point:  "The Woman Taken in Adultery" was busted as big as Christmas having sex with a man who was not her husband.  Under the Law of Moses, she was to be stoned to death, so the men of the day got their rocks and were ready to impose the death penalty upon her.  Jesus says to the men, "He who is without sin may cast the first stone."  He is saying that sinners (people) are not in any position to impose a death penalty under his new Kingdom conception of life.  When the woman is alone with him, Jesus says to her, "Neither do I condemn thee."  Even the judge (Jesus Christ) doesn't impose a death penalty under his new Kingdom conception of life.

If you elect Gregg Abbott Texas Governor, you are putting a man in place who wrongly thinks he does God service in imposing judgements, when the Kingdom is about "judge not" (make no legal determinations of others).  He believes in imposing temporal law, all temporal law being based upon the Law of Moses, which, from a Christian theological perspective, was "fulfilled" by Christ on the cross.

I, a Tolstoyan-Gandhian Libertarian, would work to abolish temporal law in favor of the Kingdom conception of life in a five point plan, if elected Texas Governor:

My Five Point Plan if Elected Texas Governor

1)  Swear not/ Do not take oaths (ends the state and all its systems of violence).

Swear not -- give no allegiance to Caesar (government), by oath or affirmation.

2)  Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth (mitigates envy and covetousness and refocuses life on the family and community).

Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth --  do not hoard assets;  invest in people and jobs, but don't hoard assets, keeping them out of economic circulation.

3)  Render not evil for evil (ends war).

4)  Go not to law (ends the legal system).

5)  Judge not, condemn not (ends bigotry, discrimination, the prison system and the death penalty).

Judge not -- make no legal determinations of others.
Condemn not -- impose no death penalty.

Conclusion:  Peace on earth.

If humankind is to have any hope of existing into perpetuity, the human race must get beyond the idea that we are to gang up on someone and do something to them on behalf of a greater good.
