Sound Money

Congressman Ron Paul (R-Tex) spoke before the House of Representatives yesterday in support of sound money. While making a run at the presidency he touched on this important subject at times. His statement can be read here.

God ordained that man, not the state, would be the primary guardian and steward of property. Strict limitations are placed on the state with regards to its means to acquire and use property. America's antipathy to the gospel and love affair with our bloated federal government by necessity transfers excessive property rights to the state. As such man abdicates his responsibility to steward himself, his family, his community and indeed the nations, inviting enslavement in the process.

The leading candidates for president will not address sound money policies as there's too much personal loss in doing so. Failure to protect the property rights of individuals is tantamount to "legalized" theft.

The Bible speaks to the actions of men when being popular trumps being right-- Galatians 6 reads, "12Those who want to make a good impression outwardly are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ. 13Not even those who are circumcised obey the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your flesh.
