The Kingdom of God, Western Civilization and the Impact of Christendom in History – Does it matter?

As we contemplate the observance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ – why was He crucified? Yes, that was prophesied, but what specifically led to the charges which convinced the Roman authorities to carry out the wishes of the Jewish rulers?

……But religious blasphemy (declaring Himself to be God) was not enough to kill Him.  What He said about money and debt would.

Furthermore, what meaning does that have for us today, living in a modern world which on one hand is proceeding at a breathtaking pace of technical advancements, while on the other is regressing to the stone ages?

Are there lessons here? Vox Day spells out what is happening right now on the streets of San Francisco - As I have repeatedly stated, the choice is not between Right and Left, or between Republican and Democrat, or even between conservative and progressive. The choice is between the Good, the Beautiful, and the True and the Evil, the Disgusting, and the Lie. The choice is between the hope of Jesus Christ and the despair of Satan.

The reasons one should support Christian nationalism and Western civilization aka Christendom is not limited to a personal belief in Jesus Christ as Man's savior. On the political side, even if you lack religious faith, a mere preference for indoor plumbing will suffice.

When we consider the fact that our predecessors warned us long ago - “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled either by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.” Robert Winthrop, Speaker of the House – why did we stop listening?

What does all this have to do with the crucifixion of a man named Jesus twenty centuries ago?  The answer to that question is “everything.” 
If you wish to study further on the Kingdom of God, you can begin here - - and continue in the CAP Lessons. In case you might want to tackle all of Western Civilization, you can start here – this should take you weeks, if not months.
I never promised you a rose garden! :)
