Become a Pilgrim - End Slavery

Saturday, May 14, 2011 4:01:00 AM

It is nearly universally agreed,  based on the words of people, at least in the United States of America, that human slavery is evil, immoral, iniquitous, injurious, malevolent, malicious, and a heinous crime against the one subject to slavery. And it is nearly universally agreed, based on the actions of people, at least in the United States of America, that human slavery is good, just, moral, enjoyable, tasteful, righteous, and the lawful thing to be subjected to by those who have been made subject to it.

There is really nothing new under the sun. The hypocrisy, lies, thievery, molestation, and murder by those who have called themselves "the land owners" is no doubt why, in part, the freedom loving men and women of old went searching for better land. Or land they could call their own. Some of them were willing to cross oceans and deserts to find it. There is a widely appreciated fact that land ownership means freedom from slavery and oppression, the right to self-determination, and the responsibility of failure as well as success.

Unfortunately, in our day and time, and for the rest of this present evil age, it does not appear that there is any more land available to seek, even across a wide ocean, as certain people with very large armaments and questionable intent in their hearts have already laid claim to every square inch of the earth, and none of them are selling.

It is not possible to buy and own even 10 acres of land in the United States, as far as I know, despite the fact that it is a country encompassing more than 3.7 million square miles, or something like 2.4 billion acres, most of which is very beautiful. The state I live in, Oklahoma, encompasses nearly 70,000 square miles or 44.7 million acres, all of it beautiful, but not even one acre of land is available for purchase and ownership by any individual at any price. The same is true in every other state of the union as far as I can tell. If you look at your property deed, it states you are a tenant, a renter. Someone else is the landlord.

Because of this, it behooves both me and you to follow in the steps of the great men and women of old, who, like Abraham, " looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. And, from Hebrews 11:

13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
