God is an Anarchist


Written by Darrell Anderson.

I recall the last time I set foot in a church, other than for a wedding or funeral. I don’t recall the exact day or year, but that particular Sunday happened to coincide or was close to the day commonly known as “Flag Day.” During the service, the pastor asked everybody to rise to sing The Battle Hymn of the Republic. A war song. A song written to justify the deaths of more than 600,000 men resulting from the War Among the States. A song written to justify the philosophy of statism and that a few humans possess some mysterious power to rule other people, to use force and coercion and the threat of violence. A song written to glorify the blood shed by statists.

At that time my discontent with churchianity had been growing for several years. There were many varied reasons, too many unanswered questions, too many inconsistencies and contradictions. At that particular time I was growing in my own rejection of the philosophy of statism. Along with the other challenges, for a long time before that eventful day I had pondered why people maintained statist flags on the podium behind the lectern. This display had become a mystery to me. I also had grown to wonder why church leaders sold their birthrights to ask politicians to incorporate — to become creatures of “the state.”

All people founding 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations[1] in the business of religion have sold their birthrights to the politicians and cannot teach the truth. All church leaders who have incorporated their church have become creatures of statism. Being creatures of statism, all such church leaders owe their allegiance to their creator. Should an individual find a willing pastor or minister to admit the truth, those admissions would be private and not public.

On that eventful day, I refused to sing. I then finally awakened to the fact that church leaders did not truly worship God, but statism. No more mystery.

  • Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
  • Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them.
  • Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
  • Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

The Biblical book of Joshua reports that Joshua commanded the Hebrews to “choose you this day whom you will serve.” Proponents of churchianity have chosen whom they prefer to serve — statism.
