In October of 2012 I recieved another email from rives proclaiming.


“No Peace by Richard Rives”

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 12:22 PM

“Around 900 B.C., during the reign of King Asa, the people had turned from God; and because of that God had turned from them. ”

” We learn from the Book of Second Chronicles that they had been a long time without the true God, without a teaching priest, and without law. In those times there was no peace and great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries. Nation was destroyed of nation for God did vex them with all adversity.”

” A prophet was sent to King Asa. He was told that if he would seek the Lord that He would be found; but that if he forsook the Lord, he would be forsaken. Asa took courage. He put away all the abominable idols out of all the land, destroying an idol that his own mother had set up, and he renewed the altar of the LORD in Jerusalem. ”

” We are told that when the Kingdom turned unto the LORD God of Israel things changed. Before there was no peace. Now, having turned back to God there was no more war for 35 years.”

” Today, just as in the past we find no peace. Once again, great vexation is upon all the countries. Nation is destroyed of nation and geopolitical analysts wonder why. ”

” While they search for answers, the commandments of our Creator are being removed from our public buildings. World religion is warmly embraced, prayer to the God of the Bible is deemed offensive and the words of scripture are challenged on every front. ”

” The judgment of God is upon this world and the worldly wise wonder why.”

” Isn’t it about time we turned back unto the God of the Bible, the LORD God of Israel? Isn’t is about time we started keeping His commandments rather than removing them from our buildings. Isn’t it about time that we look to scripture rather than to man for answers – and pray for guidance?”

” Let us heed the words of Proverbs: “By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil. When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.”

” Earnestly contending for the faith once delivered to the saints; I’m Richard Rives with Just the Facts.”


Ok that’s rives email. Here is my response.

Richard Rives has limited to no understanding of what he is asking for. He is asking Christians to go back to living as Jews did for 2000 years under a Theocratic system. In doing so whether he accepts it or not he MUST live under 613 Commandments in the Torah.

The morality rives craves is NOT REMOVED from the Law of Moses it is part of a entire theocratic system.

What rives FAILS to understand is that by keeping only the Ten of 613 Commandments he is a spiritual law breaker and is worthy of death by God. See James 2:10-11.

Rives like many Judaizers are already at the door of apostasy according to the Scriptures. See 2 Timothy 4:3-4.

IF Rives thinks that living under a Theocratic system will somehow help the USA he should look up how people were treated under Catholic and moslem Theocratic systems in history books.

Perhaps if he realizes that the system he craves requires people to die for their sins if they break Gods Laws only then ,maybe he would change.

But somehow I don’t think he will.
