bible and constitution

“If only there was an instruction manual,” asked Joe Rogan.  He goes on to talk about how auto mechanics have manuals on how to fix a car and make it run correctly, and then asks why don’t we have a manual to guide us on how to operate the complexities of human existence?

Completely oblivious to the existence of the Holy Bible and United States Constitution, Joe?

God gave us a full and complete manual filled with instructions, examples of bad and good behavior, and the consequences of that behavior in a massive collection of books called the Holy Bible.  Then, nearly two hundred and forty years ago, the Constitution of the United States was written, providing us with the instructions on how to maintain a proper government designed to hold back tyranny and promote liberty, which, interestingly enough, is based on biblical truths as the primary part of its foundation.  Both documents are typically hated by the enemies of God, or ignored.  But, in the case of Joe Rogan, the existence of either doesn’t even come to mind.

Hence, the foundation of our problems here in America.  We wonder why God’s moral standard has vanished, godly marriage is flailing as homosexual marriage claims a spot in society, some folks have been convinced that they are the wrong sex and should be chopped up by medical butchers to fix it, masculinity is rare and femininity can be found more often in prancing men than a well-adjusted female, men want porn and sex robots more than reality, we kill babies in the womb, we call people who stand for the godly foundation of liberty that this country was founded upon “fascists,” we don’t have enough of an attention span to use our critical thinking skills beyond the well-scripted words of a headline, and liberty and the free market are considered taboo as people scream against Christians and constitutionalists in “I’ve been offended” rage-filled temper tantrums.

Sarcasm-pump number one, full-speed ahead: If only there was a way to figure out what went wrong?

It amazed me when I saw the following video clip of Joe Rogan being completely oblivious.  That said, after viewing the clip, I wanted to give Joe Rogan a benefit of the doubt.  After all, the video is only a portion of what he said.  Perhaps, I thought to myself, there is more to his monologue than revealed by this video.  Maybe he was being sarcastic.  Maybe later in the diatribe that is not revealed by this video he exposes that he means the Bible.  If, however, the context of this video is as it seems, it reveals the exact problem we have across the wide-breadth of society.  People are searching, hoping to fill the void in their lives that only God can fill, and the Bible and the Constitution aren’t even in the realm of possibilities when it comes to their search for answers.

So, in search of trying to give Rogan a benefit of the doubt, considering it was possible the clip above might be misleading, I found the next clip about Rogan doubting the Bible is the inerrant word of God…

Then I find a clip about Rogan believing that the Bible has been manipulated by man…

It looks like Rogan was not being misquoted, nor misrepresented by clever editing.  The answer is obvious, but he can’t see it.  Perhaps Rogan simply needs a “God Moment,” an epiphany that sometimes can shake the foundations of our existence in ways we can’t explain.  

John 16:33

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Philippians 4:6–7 

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.  And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Psalm 34:3-10

O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Joshua 1:9

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Matthew 6:30–33

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Proverbs 3:4–7

So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

Romans 15:3-4, 13

For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Philippians 2:13–16

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

Isaiah 41:12-13

Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.

For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

1 Peter 5:5–11

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

II Timothy Chapter 3

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,

Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

One thought on “Biblical & Constitutional Guidance: Joe Rogan Has No Idea

  1. Doug, in one paragraph you wrote…

    “Hence, the foundation of our problems here in America. We wonder why God’s moral standard has vanished, godly marriage is flailing as homosexual marriage claims a spot in society, some folks have been convinced that they are the wrong sex and should be chopped up…to fix it, masculinity is rare and femininity can be found more often in prancing men than a well-adjusted female… we kill babies in the womb, we call people who stand for the godly foundation of liberty that this country was founded upon “fascists,” we don’t have enough of an attention span to use our critical thinking skills beyond”… oh where was I going with this Douglas, …my attention span was challenged…
    Oh yes, you know who else agrees with a lot of the above? I meant other than evangelicals.
