The Second Front-Overview

Works

We are known by the works we do – not the emotions we feel or the claims we make. Works validate what we do.

Works must be based on empirical measures and quantifiable standards to verify the level of our obedience.

The value of the church serves as an objective measure of our faith. The church is the people of God but we measure the size of the church by the value we have created for the people of God.

This measure is not related to the Prosperity Gospel which suggests what we pray for we will get or we will be rewarded materially for obedience to a ministers requests. Localist economics predicts that the more we help one another with faith the more we will prosper. Prosperity is predicted to be a result of works done in faith, that is in accordance with the First Constitution teachings.


 

What Is Work?

The church is people building their place; by this is meant that value is being added. Building the church is increasing the equity one is entrusted with. Moderates are a light to the world and we work to make our faith a scientific proof of God. Non-believers see God in the power of the place built on faith. The church manifests God on earth as we work to save the place we are at.

The church is built spiritually but also materially, there is the spiritual life and the material life. The spiritual wealth is manifested in physical wealth. Building a community is an economic activity. Works produce economic activity. The physical church is the empirical correlate of our faith.

Ultimately the church is a community of believers working to demonstrate through their life and works in caring for their place in which they live, that God Exists.


 

The Reformation

The Reformation did not proceed far enough. Christianity divided from Catholicism but retained the ungodly politics of Babylon.

Working together in unity and faith does not compromise doctrinal integrity. The church must build up their place. This is the work that is done in faith. The health of the planet provides an objective measure of the validity of our Scriptural interpretations.

If what we do harms our place what we believe is in error.


 

What Is Truth?

Moderates believe there can be only one truth and one source of truth.

If there are multiple truths or multiple sources of truth, then truth has no meaning and science no foundation. If truth is relative, then science is impossible. Without absolute truth all we have is opinion and attempts to prove our truth has more value than others because it is our truth.

All truth must be connected and linked to (emanate from) one source of truth. Logically, there is only one source of information and that is God, regardless what you call God. All truth is information and all information must of necessity originate in a sentient being. The emanating source of all truth is God by definition; that, or there is no truth.

There is no logical or empirical method that would indicate multiple independent sources of truth nor a set of truths logically or existentially independent from a sentient point of origin. That is it is impossible to conceive of competing truths unless there are two realities without any connection between them.

All truth must be within a interconnected body of all truth all of which has a single origin in God thus all information comes originally from God.

Science necessitates a reliable source and origin of truth. By definition reliable truth can only come from a Supreme Being. Logically there can be no conflict between truth, God and science.

No truth is independent from the source of Truth. All truth is information and all information is created. There is nothing in logic, experience or evidentiary knowledge that suggests information has its source in anything other than a conscious and intelligent being. By convention, that being is called God.

All truth has a correlate in the real world. All truth can be tested in and through the natural world. All truth is empirical in that God has made it verifiable through observations within the natural world.
