One of the very best threads in any motion picture
is this one from Monty Python's Life of Brian.
Through a couple of key scenes we take in the blistering satire
perpetrated by that splendidly valiant revolutionary
organization The People's Front of Judea.
They share so
very much, so very simply.
The People's Front is led by a proudly
demonstrative man named Reg who inspires an upright and
mild-mannered people who just want
things in life to be better for everyone and hold
as the most significant activity to reach that goal
getting rid of that pesky ugly imperialist Roman
We are first introduced to Reg and his three cohorts
enjoying a fight at the arena, and our hero Brian
asks to be included. After an
inquiry about his motives, Reg asks him, "Okay, but
how much do you hate the Romans?"
He answers with profound conviction, "A lot."
Reg thinks for about half-a-second, and replies,
"Okay, you're in."
A bit later they are holding a
secret meeting of the group's rank-&-file, which
pitifully numbers barely a dozen. To generate some
enthusiasm Reg asks them a strictly
rhetorical question, "What have the Romans ever done
A member meekly answers, "The aqueduct." Reg
reluctantly concedes and repeats the question.
Another comes back with "The roads." Others add
things like sanitation and public safety, until some
ten or fifteen very fine things are mentioned. So Reg
then repeats the question with "Besides the aqueduct, the
roads... [all are cited], what have the
Romans ever done for us?"
The film contains much more fun from The People's Front of
Judea, they could very
well be the best thing in the movie.
I've spent my web ministry life hoping to elucidate
the distinction between the World and the Kingdom as
simply, boldly, and clearly as I can. This simple
montage does quite well with this, to be honest
one comment added to one YouTube posting of a
film's scene puts it
well. "40 years later it is still hilariously on
point. Millions of 16-21 year-olds on the Internet
fighting and talking like this daily. It's amazing."
But, alas. If that is so...
People are still not getting it.
So I will give it a go again, with some thoughts
here in this season's home page piece.
My wife and I recently spent our anniversary weekend in Solvang, a quaint little tourist trap in a
beautiful part of California known as the Santa Ynez
Valley. The town is best known for its cute overbearing Danish look and feel.
Our first morning there we strolled on a trail outside
of town to get there, and were surprised to find
ourselves running right smack into one of the
California missions, named of course Santa Inés
and I have no idea why the difference in spelling.
There it was, in all its majestic glory, as they all
are now of
course pretty-much grand museum pieces
its gift shop stocked with all the Roman Catholic
idolatrous paraphernalia one may purchase.
Still, it does stand as one of those powerful symbols of Roman
Catholic dominance in the region. Just like the
performance art so exquisitely exhibited inside
during services, the large pronounced edifice still
bellows to all the stark reality of who rules the World
Out on my morning walk the next day I thought about
and prayed for the apocalyptic revival, in contrast
to beholding this monument. I
thought, huh, for that to really happen it would have to come down. The Romanist
System is only about enslavement to shame, to
guilt, to condemnation... there is no real
But then I thought, oh, if I were to, say,
go take a wrecking ball to the mission building,
indeed to Rome, I'd be doing nothing other
than what the French Revolution iconoclasts were
trying to do. Remember what happened when they took over
Notre Dame? When they thought ridding the
world of the incessantly irritating Romanist scold would bring
niceness and utopia and everything nice? Those
heroic sans-culottes (I'm sure they were really BIPOC
in some way hat tip to the brand new historically accurate Google Gemini "A.I."
image-generating service) tossing out all those
saints and biblical heroes, replacing them with busts of the
ultra-enlightened shining halogen lamps of Voltaire,
Rousseau, and even Benjamin Franklin (and certainly
a few BIPOC famous people, you know, we can't be any
less anti-racist) you know, so
the waaay better Goddess of Reason would reign.
Reg would be so proud.
The problem too is that whatever ruling elite is in
power, it is indeed there by God's hand. Grasping
the truths illuminated in Scripture, most pointedly
for this treatise those in the fourth chapter of
Genesis, goes a long way to understanding what God
did with Cain, what his present-day minions do with all ordained
potentates, sectarian or secular and then what
happens with just about any other political thing
that racks our brains far too often.
Any organized rebellion against those powers, even
my own sometimes stirred desire to bring Rome down,
is a part of the Ministry of Sin. In God's
divine wisdom He established the Ministry of
Condemnation to keep that ministry in check,
requiring Rome to employ great evil to combat the
evil that humans routinely do. Me, Reg, the rabid
leftist sporting some kind of Che Guevara-like
t-shirt getting paid good money to rage in the
crusade by, say, splashing paint all over some
really valuable painting and then gluing hands to the wall the
most courageous iconoclasts!
Who will free us from this body of death?
Rome has so many options for System salvation, but
it does so to keep us all hypnotized by the
Romanist mandarins, visible and not-so-visible. It
will blare that it is really doing something about
the evils it provokes, but it does need those evils in
order to do its virtue-signaling about how wonderful
it is fighting them, and it does it with seven times the force any
of the very best detractors have. Think your own
special brand of iconoclastic vigor will do
anything about that?
That's the beauty of the People's Front of Judea.
They delightfully show us how pathetic those efforts
are. This one and that one and that one and this
one, over and over and over again they've been
happening for centuries before the People's Front
and for centuries after. All so imaginative and
entrancing and engaging. Today's quite elaborate
social control innovations are really just no
different. I hear them now, can you? The brilliantly
contrived excuses, proudly bleated but
"Well that's just what your group thinks
about things!" Ahh, postmodernism, one of
the finest World Op inventions for keeping people in
"Well I've looked carefully at this Christianity
thing and it's just no good!" Ahh, a complete
bastardization of deconstructionism, a
mostly silly philosophical pustule anyway, but

"Well the Catholic Church is really okay because
they help the poor but I still want it around so people can
murder their own babies if they want!" Ahh,

There're so many more. So many more hapless
blitherings to try to rationalize away the
simplicity of the true liberating gospel.
That freedom is in The Savior and The Kingdom. This
is the Ministry of Reconciliation.

The only way this is manifest across a community is
when worship assemblies become ungrafted to the
System. "Abjure the realm" as it was once
called long ago. Churches that remain obligated to
the World through their contractual incorporations
and registrations with that World are merely
subdivisions of that Roman Catholic dominion. I just
can't see how people who say they're Christians can
ignore the plain proscription
all over Scripture,
viscerally shared there in the letter to the
Galatians: "I do not set aside the grace of God, for
if righteousness could be obtained from the law,
Christ died for nothing!"
What would happen if genuine worship communities of
people who do actually have the name of Christ on
their lips were never grafted, never tied
to Rome even to begin with? The sheep of
His Pasture would then by prayer, fellowship,
worship, and real vibrant communion with Him oh my

Jesus said as much.
It is quite simple.
How then does all the institutionalized evil continue
to still metastasize all around us then?
For one, people are so wickedly inured to doing
everything the World Ops have told them to believe
they must do no matter what it is. "Hey, the Roman
Catholic Church is just as Christian as anything."
"Object to ruling forces about some thing,
but they're still right about most things." "Don't

If you really want to look, you may see beyond all

It is fun to hear a quite pertinent remark from
the recent acclaimed motion picture Oppenheimer,
even though it does only go as far as that

point in the midst of his explanation of the

don't want to get lost down there.
Especially since without Him they will
successfully trap you there forever.
One final note. It
is a brief but sobering
metaphor for the death that is the Roman Catholic
Hegemony and the World it governs. And please, it will be simple.
