So now, simply because we support absolute liberty, we're trolls? I do not consider "minarchists" to be trolls, as I have found one or two to actually be consistent libertarians (Jacob Hornberger of FFF comes to mind). I do believe, however, that the "minarchists" who make exceptions to liberty on issues such as foreign military intervention and xenophobia, are the real "plague" on our movement.

Only God brings liberty being the author of it.  So God's government is essential in order to be truly free.  Again I point you to the scriptures for the authority on this topic if you truly care to represent Christianity accurately.  In order to truly love your neighbor as Jesus taught (the second commandment) you must first love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind (the first and greatest of all commandments).

Cherry picking the scriptures is no substitute for understanding the Gospel in its entirity.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

and. I know what happened when it was finally attained.

A BoseEinstein condensate (BEC) is a state of matter of a dilute gas of bosons cooled to temperatures very close to absolute zero (that is, very near 0 K or −273.15 °C). Under such conditions, a large fraction of bosons occupy the lowest quantum state, at which point macroscopic quantum phenomena become apparent.

I am a supporter of "Absolute Liberty" sir. as a general rule. Christians" do not support. "Absolute Liberty"

or we would have attained it by now. eh?  :) (or do you have a mouse in your pocket?)  :)

You concluded on such an empty observation, I felt I had to reply here, Techy.

"'Christians' do not support, 'Absolute Liberty' or we would have attained it by now. eh?" Did you know that Jesus addressed your notion directly?

Then said Jesus to those Jews that believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. - John 8:31

Messiah was teaching new disciples, who were from an intact historical AND biblical lineage: aligned with his word, then and there: that CONTINUATION in his word would prove who they were, what they would then know, and how THAT TRUTH would make them, eh?

The problem isn't that that freedom can't be found here. I dare say it is the only real place to start and actually find it. Rather, it is that continuation in his word has been abandoned by so many professing Christians; if they even bothered to read them for themselves, and pray about their implications and applications: that causes observers, like you, HVACTech, to ponder if the very faith He gave us to follow, isn't just some cleaver ruse, rather than real true life.

Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place. ― Frédéric Bastiat, The Law
