In 1804 a group of New England senators conspired to split New England and New York from the U.S. When asked to be the military leader, Alexander Hamilton refused. The conspirators turned to Aaron Burr, who hesitated. He wasn’t ready for the step then, though in 1806 he led an effort to seize Spanish possessions and establish himself as the king of a southern confederacy.
When Hamilton refused the appeal in 1804, Burr urged him to reconsider. When Hamilton said he had too much morality to make such a decision, Burr replied, “General, all things are moral to great souls.” Internet
There’s only a baby step from saying “great souls” make their own morality to saying “any interest group willing to be loud enough, persistent enough and public enough” can get their own view of morality accepted and tolerated!
The Women’s Liberation movement is one of those causes. The Liquor industry in America is one of those causes. The homosexual/lesbian lobby is one of those causes. The One World, “Washington Can Do It All Good, with No Harm” advocates of socialized everything is one of those groups. The Humanist Manifesto authors, who remove God from their thinking, and elevate human thought as the final arbiter, is another.
Wherever God’s Son asserts his authority, Satan claims his instead. The contest is uneven, however. Jesus holds ALL Authority, in heaven and on earth Matthew 28:18-20. That leaves NONE for anyone else, including the devil and all his underlings in and out of government, business, the unions, the military, the universities, et al. It includes all who consider themselves above God’s eternal word. Which cannot change because his Eternal SON—his Living WORD, authors it.
When Jesus returns to claim the victory he won at the Cross and the Tomb, “on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory,” Matthew 24:30, God’s elect will shout themselves hoarse in exaltation, but “all the nations of the earth will mourn,” Matthew 24:30b, Revelation 1:7e. The redeemed delirious with joy because they humbled themselves before Christ’s authority. The nations mourning and despairing, but without repentance, Revelation 9:20-21, because they arrogated to themselves HIS PLACE, declaring that “all things are moral to great souls.”
