“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder. And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Every Sunday School, Southern Christian has heard the above from some pulpit in Horry County. It is usually proclaimed during local Christmas services.
The verse is found in Isaiah 9:6. Many religious Christians can quote this verse, but fewer and fewer employ it as a daily principal in where they place their own faith.
Myrtle Beach is a very religious, Southern city with many like-minded religious, Northern transplants. Most are what the world would call “church-ed Christians”.
MyrtleBeachSC.com writes often about government accountability. We also enjoy covering articles on faith in daily reality. This news team does not think very highly of “church-ed religious types”, however. Southern churches are sure to be filled to capacity today with people doing their duty and going through the religious motions.
For our team, today is a day of resurrection, transformation, life and new life. It is also a day of certainty in respect to good government.
So many have reached out to us this week concerning the city council held, tourism lobby orchestrated, TDF vote this past Tuesday. They told us how that vote made them feel hopeless. Others have pointed out the Scanna/Santee Cooper/State-Wide prosecution investigations saying there is no hope in S.C.
One of the key, guiding principles at MyrtleBeachSC.com is that the rights of citizens are given to them by God. We do understand how those who do not hold to this belief feel hopeless. We are not without hope, however, and never have been.
Myrtle Beach locals witnessed the religious rhetoric from one former and key local C.E.O. proclaiming #stopthehate, this week. Leaders, like this, actually have the audacity to believe they can accept over $22 million annually in tax payer monies and never have their actions investigated or reported on. They genuinely believe they are above being questioned. Why is that?
The same is true with certain city bureaucrats. One such bureaucrat called Myrtle Beach locals, not named specifically by him, cyber terrorists. City Manager, John Pedersen, shamed local residents for being active in local Myrtle Beach government discussions.
At MyrtleBeachSC.com, not only has our God risen, he rules and the government falls on his shoulders. Those rights are divinely given directly to us by him and then extended back to those we choose to elect.
We have never made it a point to put any faith in even the best forms of natural government. We believe such forms of natural government are to be watched, monitored and held accountable.
Rather, we place our faith in a supernatural governmental force that is holy, above reproach and can not fail.
It is best exampled in the way citizens choose to let the kingship of a resurrected Christ individually rule their own lives on a personal and daily basis. This type of rule is impossible without a person’s willingness to surrender to the indwelling, ongoing guidance of God’s Holy Spirit in every decision they make.
Coming together, those citizens make a better and more complete, local government. Such as these walk in high authority and truly rule our Myrtle Beach kingdom.
