God Save the Queen
I’m always surprised to hear what I’ve never said; acknowledging I’ve said a lot of things that are often received like salt on an open wound.
I live for it.
Read Matthew 5:13-16.
Anyway, when it comes to the Queen and her royal family, even members of my own family seem as upset with me as the people that left our family of faith on the Corner of Lincoln and Main when we took the church away from them and gave it back to Jesus or Muslims that want to fatwa-Rushdie me because I’m not shy about saying their idol was a perv and Christians would never treat women, gays, and infidels like they do.
Compelled by the first half of the big ten in Exodus 20 and commandingly complementary references throughout the Bible, I’ve never been into idolizing any royal family even in churches that I’ve served as an undershepherd to the Good Shepherd for three reasons.
First, we fought a war to get away from them.
Second, go back to the paragraph about Exodus 20 and the Bible that condemns – yes, categorically condemns even damns without excuse or exception – idolatry of any kind because it distracts from the attention, affection, and allegiance due God alone.
Psst. That second reason is why brass plaques and pictures of deceased big givers and even some pastors in churches are so repulsive Third, while I wouldn’t expect people with Bibles not bigger than their favorite parts to pick this up, God cares a lot about poor people and seems really pissed off by people that keep too much for themselves.
Psst. The New York Post which has about as much credibility to me as the New York Times which is why I read both in my search for intersecting truth reported on 9/13/22 that King Charles III has a list of daily demands that should make even the most idolatrous a tad nauseous: “…from ironing his shoelaces to putting toothpaste on his toothbrush…His pajamas are pressed every morning…the water temperature has to be just tepid [which fits in a Laodicean kinda way]…He reportedly even brings his own toilet seat and Kleenex Velvet toilet paper wherever he goes…”
Like Queen like Prince trumps like Father like Son.
O.K., I could go on and on and on about the idolatry thing or that family’s lack of confession when it comes to their colonialistic savagery throughout history and that the Queen was nothing more than a meaningless monarch apart from being a ceremonial tourist attraction with cartoonishly blinding pastel attire…but I’ve already got enough former faith-poser members and Muslims scheming to ambush and assassinate me…so I’ll get to the point.
The Queen is no more nor no less loved by God than you, me, or anybody else in a John 3:16-17 kinda way.
The Queen is no more nor no less saved for eternal life in heaven than you, me, or anybody else by grace through faith in Jesus in a John 11:25 kinda way.
So God save the Queen…and He will just as He will save you, me, and anybody else by grace through faith in Jesus.
