Democracy killed Jesus Christ
As much as I love this Country, this came to me as a real shock.
Democracy is mob rule without Law.
This nation was founded as a Republic, which is suppose to be ruled by the Law and not just by the majority.
Consider all the times that the crowds were aroused to persecute Paul and others. Acts 16. Like how the southern leaders stirred up the crowds against the former slaves and the abolitionists.
Diana of Ephesus in ACTS 19. Mobocracy.
The mob ceased Paul (ACTS 21:26)
It is about individual rights, not the will of the loudest voice or strongest arm.
It is not the individual which is most important but rather the Republic. This is why we sacrifice individual soldiers to preserve the Republic. One life, or ten lives, or even a million lives is not what should determine our actions. Rather, what is best for the preservation of the Republic, that is what determines our actions.
