Word Manipulation: ‘Equality’ -6
Liberalism’s number 1 tactic of deception is Word Manipulation, which changes definitions of words or creates new words. WM is a tactic designed to create confusion, allowing for control over the masses, through a ‘fear’ of misunderstanding. In addition, liberalism controls the masses using a second tactic: Cancel Culture, which bullies resistors through threats of loss: loss of jobs, loss of careers, and loss of money, etc.
Please watch this short 1 minute video by Kamala Harris on ‘Equality vs Equity’, where she states:
1.“There’s a big difference between equality and equity. Equality
suggests, “Oh everyone should get the same amount.”
2.“Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place”.
First, Kamala states: “Equality suggests, “Oh everyone should get the same amount.”” This statement is contingent upon at least 4 answers: i.who is “everyone”? ii.who decides everyone should get the same amount? iii.who is it giving that “same amount”? iv.And, where is that “same amount” coming from?”
Obviously, “everyone” refers to ‘Americans’; and points ii. and iii. point directly to the government; and point iv. refers to taxation, because the government creates nothing.
Her second statement is also direct—she believes “everyone” should end at the same place in life. As you watch the video, notice it ends with the sun shining on the two men, who have made it to the mountain top. The strong implication is utopia!
To cut-to-the-chase, the obvious philosophical origin of Harris’ statements in 1. and 2.; as well as her entire video, is Karl Marx, who declared: "From each according to his ability; to each according to his need." The fundamental assumption in Marx’ statement is the existence of a ‘sovereign authority’ who has the power to both identify and provide for the abilities and needs …of “everyone”!!! Although Marx believed this ‘sovereign authority’ to be government, we absolutely know only one Being can provide for the abilities and needs of “everyone”---God! In other words, the fundamental sin of Marxism is idolatry! Marxism deifies government!
Now that we understand the desired end of Kamala Harris’ video, what then is the means to this end? She takes Ibram X. Kendi’s, “How to be an Anti-racist” and uses his definition of ‘equality’ and ‘equity’…to establish her Marxism. Remember, it was Kendi who wrote, “In order to truly be antiracist, you also have to truly be anti-capitalist…the origins of racism cannot be separated from the origins of Capitalism. The origins of Capitalism cannot be separated from the origins of racism." Well, once America is rid of Capitalism using Kendi’s Anti-racism, what do you think will remain? If you don’t know, I’ll tell you…Marxism!
On the contrary, both the Bible, and our 3 founding documents: i.the Declaration of Independence, ii.the Constitution, and iii.the Northwest Ordinance--which are all founded upon the Bible--promote a very different view.
First, the Bible declares God created man in His image and likeness. This action created the authentic definition of equality, which is equal in being/nature*. In other words, God created mankind equal because every human possesses the image and likeness of God(Gen1:26-28). On the contrary, without the image of God, it is impossible for mankind to be equal. For example, evolution declares men evolved from a lower species, which if true means, mankind cannot be equal, because men are in a continuous state of differing degrees of evolution.
Our Founding Fathers, on the other hand, took the “image and likeness” Biblical truth, and incorporated it into the Declaration of Independence, “we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”. The word “men” in the DOI means ‘mankind’—both male and female. The proof of this fact is that the same Bible also teaches “…there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Gal3:28).
Yet, God’s goodness to mankind, does not end with His ‘image and likeness’. Allow me to list a few more things the Sovereign has gifted us:
In short, each human has these 5 things, but are not the same for any one person--male or female. For example, each human has potential, but not the same potential; and each of us has a unique purpose, but not the same unique purpose, etc.
Contrary to Marxism, Harris, and Kendi, the Sovereign God never intended that “everyone should get the same amount”(Mat25:15). Furthermore, regarding Marx’ statement "From each according to his ability; to each according to his need", God never intended for a ‘man’*** to determine another man’s ability; nor another man’s need. On the contrary, human need is determined primarily through the above five gifts (i.-v.), etc.!!! I repeat, no man*** can decide the needs of another man! And furthermore, when the Bible states, “My God shall supply all your needs, according to His riches in glory”(Phil4:19), means it takes God’s riches in glory to fully supply even one human need, let-alone the needs of all mankind!!! No government can do that!!!
Considering that Harris and Kendi (who claims to be an historian) are Black, one would think they ought to know that Marxism has dominated Black African nations for decades! And what has been the result? If it can be said that Marxism has given Black Africans the “same amount”—that “same amount” is poverty!!!
On the contrary, liberal Blacks like Harris and Kendi are fully aware of what Marxism has done to Black African nations. And…they are fully aware that Capitalism--which is another Biblical principle--has created Black millionaires and billionaires all over America, and even in other nations, including Black African nations. Why then do they oppose the very systems that have prospered so many Black people?
1.The are pawns of Satan, who comes to steal, kill, and destroy
(Jn10:10); who wants to destroy America because of what it
has done for Blacks, and many other minorities.
2.For their own personal power and riches. Obviously, the
wealth Harris and Kendi now possess--using Capitalism---is
not enough! It is the zenith of hypocrisy to attack the very
system used to make one wealthy!
3.Envy. They hate to see that America**** has prospered more
than any other nation, which in their opinion was created by
White people 5*, of which they falsely accuse of stealing its
wealth. In short, Harris and Kendi are guilty of the very
racism 6* of which they accuse America!
*FYI. Equality does not claim “Everyone should get the same amount”…but Marxism does! Equality is about nature/being, not about ‘getting an amount’ of something!
**This list is not exhaustive
****Which they call a racist nation!
5*In reality, God created America…and made her the wealthiest nation in human history (Ps67:6-7)!!!
6*I am fully aware that Kamala Harris is married to a White man. However, it is liberalism tha declares a White can be married to a Black, and still be racist…through implicit bias. I return their own logic!

Word Manipulation is a liberal tactic that:
1.creates new words
2.changes definitions of old words
Words are important because they are used to think, feel, behave, understand, build up, tear down, communicate, interpret, love, hate, encourage, and so forth. Word Manipulation is the intentional misuse of words to influence the masses in a certain direction.
Liberalism has changed the ‘Separation of church and state’ to the ‘Separation of God from state’. This legally began in 1947 in the Everson v Board of Education where the Supreme Court ruled: “The First Amendment has erected “a wall of separation between church and state.” That wall must be kept high and impregnable.”
This statement is false for 3 reasons:
1.The First Amendment says nothing about a “wall of separation”. They used this idea which had never before been approved by the governmental process on any level!
2.What is the wall impregnable against? Obviously, the church! But, to keep the wall impregnable, Congress must intervene to keep the church out, which is a clear violation of the first amendment!
3.How did they define the word “church”? God and the Bible!
Every one of the 13 colonies(states) were affiliated with a particular Christian denomination. For example, the Virginia colony was Anglican, which led to the persecution of the Baptists, whose preachers were literally jailed for preaching the gospel. After 1776, and the Declaration of Independence; and later, the Constitutional Convention in 1787-89, to legally end this practice of persecution, the first amendment was passed, which declared: "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." The intent of the first amendment was designed to prevent Congress* from creating “a federally established denomination”; and from intervening in church affairs.
To arrive at their ruling, the 1947 Supreme court examined Thomas Jefferson’s ‘entire’ letter to the Danbury Baptists**, but proceeded to lift only ‘one statement’ out of context: “I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.”
Because of ‘this’ statement; as well as Jefferson’s life-long involvement in politics; authoring the Declaration; and achieving the presidency; the 1947 court felt free to apply the phrase “separation of church and state” to the first amendment!
Two major problems!!
1.First, the term “separation of church and state” was in common use in 1776, so, if Jefferson had wanted to place it in the Declaration of Independence, he could have done so! And, if the Constitutional Convention had wanted to place it in the Constitution, they certainly could have done so, too! In other words, the term “separation of church and state” does not appear in any of America’s three founding documents: i.Declaration of Independence; ii.the Constitution; iii.the Northwest Ordinance…for a reason!! But it does appear in the 1947 Everson case!
Furthermore, Jefferson made public statements supporting the first amendment’s actual definition, which as I said was: Congress cannot legislate “a federally established denomination”; the purpose of which was to prohibit Congress from intervening in church affairs!! Following are of couple of Jefferson’s quotes:
--“No power over the freedom of religion . . . is delegated to the United States by the Constitution.” Kentucky Resolution, 1798
--“In matters of religion, I have considered that its free exercise is placed by the Constitution independent of the powers of the general (federal) government.” Second Inaugural Address, 1805
--“Our excellent Constitution . . . has not placed our religious rights under the power of any public functionary.” Letter to the Methodist Episcopal Church, 1808
--“I consider the government of the United States as interdicted (prohibited) by the Constitution from intermeddling with religious institutions . . . or exercises.” Letter to Samuel Millar, 1808
--Finally, he wrote to Benjamin Rush, a fellow-signer of the Declaration of Independence: “The clause of the Constitution which, while it secured the freedom of the press, covered also the freedom of religion, had given to the clergy a very favorite hope of obtaining an establishment of a particular form of Christianity through the United States; and as every sect believes its own form the true one, every one perhaps hoped for his own, but especially the Episcopalians and Congregationalists. The returning good sense of our country threatens abortion to their hopes and they believe that any portion of power confided to me will be exerted in opposition to their schemes. And they believe rightly.”
Jefferson’s statements are evidence the first amendment was designed to limit Congress, not the people!!!! Yet, because of the 1947 case, liberalism has willfully re-interpreted, re-defined, and misapplied the ‘separation of church and state’ so that it now results in things like: prohibiting public schools--by the government decree--from singing Christmas carols, prayer, or Bible reading! Are you aware, that public schools cannot study George Washington’s inaugural and farewell addresses because they contain too much God and Christianity verbiage? Even private businesses now forbid their employees from saying “Merry Christmas”, because of “Christ” in Christmas…in favor of “Happy Holidays”***!
The end of re-interpreting the “separation of church and state” to “separation of God from state”, is to remove God, and the Bible, from public display!!! Tragically, because no vacuums exist, atheism by way of liberalism, has filled the void of publicly removing God and His word…and therefore, is on the verge of becoming the new American religion!
2.Second, the “separation of church and state” is a Bible doctrine! In other words, for liberals to use the term “separation of church and state” in our American governing process is the apex of hypocrisy! Why? For example, the word “Trinity” is not used in the Bible, but all its components are everywhere! Therefore, for two millennium, orthodox Christianity has accepted the Trinity: Father, Son, Holy Spirit---as one of its critical doctrines. So too, the words, “separation of church and state”, are not in the Bible, but the doctrine is well represented. As far as we know, the Christian doctrine of the “separation of church and state”, was coined by Richard Hooker (1554-1600), an Anglican priest, who attempted to interpret Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 22:21: “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s”. See also 2Chronicles 19:11.
However, the actual, original interpretation of the term “separation of church and state” means, God, Who is the only Sovereign, gives purpose to both the church and the state. Therefore, the church and the state are separate, in the sense that their purposes are separate (i.e.different), yet both take their direction from the Sovereign Creator!
Therefore, liberalism, in all the glory of its hatred of God and His word, must use a Biblical doctrine, as its source to separate church(God) and state!! Sorry liberals…it’s completely irrational to use the Bible to reject God! You have been caught with your hand in the cookie jar!
On the contrary, the Bible says, God’s name is Jehovah Nissi (Ex17:15), which means banner, flag, or to be lifted high. In contrast to liberalism’s attempt to steal a Bible doctrine to support their heresy, the Bible declares that God’s Great name**** is to be lifted-up over the culture, i.e. the church, government, education, media, business, entertainment, and family*****!
In conclusion, Psalms 33:12 declares, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD…” while Psalms 96:5 says, “For all the gods of the nations are idols…” In other words, every nation has a god, but only those nations whose God is the Lord are blessed!! Therefore, only those nations whose deity is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…are truly blessed!!! For this reason alone, America has been, and still is, the most blessed nation…in the history of the world! And to retain His blessing, we must fight to keep liberalism from removing God from our culture!
*I repeat, the first amendment was directed at Congress—please read this again! Do you think the Constitutional Convention did not understand the meaning of the word: “Congress”?!?!
**who originally wrote him to ensure they would have freedom to practice their religion without government interference
***Of course, this is another liberal hypocrisy because “holiday” means “holy day”, and refers to the Bible’s holy days!!
****God has many names (El Elohe; Tsidknu; El Shaddai, etc.), all of which are God-commanded to be exalted by a nation!!!
