This program will briefly discuss the principle of using a scapegoat to take away the blame for any adverse circumstances that arise because of the incompetent, neglectful, criminal, or treasonous action, or inaction, of an organization or individual. There are Biblical incidences of a scapegoat that took away the sins of the people: Leviticus 16:5 And he [Aaron] shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering. 16:7-10 And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat. And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lord's lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering. But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.
The people were aware of their sin. They transferred their sin onto an innocent animal that was then released into the wilderness to symbolically take away the people’s sin.
There is an even more vivid illustration of a scape goat: Jesus.
John 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. [The presence, power, and penalty of sin; our scapegoat.]
The scapegoat analogy that I to which I will allude during this program is not perfect because, unlike the scapegoat of Leviticus 16 or of Jesus, the organizations using innocent people as scapegoats do not in any way consider themselves to be sinners or to accept responsibility for their incompetent, neglectful, criminal, or treasonous action, or inaction. Such organizations seek only to redirect the blame and anger arising from appalling and horrendous situations that they caused, redirecting it to others who had no role in causing the problem. Thus, the perpetrators escape the consequences that they should suffer; instead, the scapegoats will suffer the unrighteous wrath of the culprits themselves. Examples of scapegoats were the Jews in Germany during the Depression and the independent farmers and merchants of the Ukraine, pejoratively called Kulak’s, during the early days of the Soviet Union. Both the Jews of Germany and the independent farmers and merchants took the blame for poor economic conditions, and many lost their lives at the hands of governments that were eager to divert the anger of the people from the government, where it rightly belonged, to innocent citizenry. The article that is the focus of this program, “Are You Ready to Be an American Kulak?”, contends that Christians are being setup by the media to be the contemporary United States scapegoats, like the kulaks in the Soviet Union, so that the Christians can be persecuted and destroyed.
Five people died during the January 6, 2021 demonstration at the US Capitol, but the only two deaths by violence were that of Ashli Babbitt, callously shot by a Capitol Police Officer, and Rosanne Boyland, who appears to have been savagely and sadistically kicked to death by Capitol Police Officers. Never forget Ashli Babbitt and Rosanne Boyland.
The program title, Liberty and Posterity, comes from the US Constitution, the preamble of which states that one of the reasons for writing and ratifying the Constitution was to “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,” our posterity being our children and descendants not yet born. As a reminder, on the Liberty and Posterity program, we view all events and activities in relation to reality, truth, and Biblical morality, the same principles stated in the Declaration of Independence that entitle the United States to be separate from, and equal to, other nations: the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. If you have a problem with that, the problem is on your end, not ours.
