I remember being scared of Cardinal Richelieu in Three Musketeers movies. He had all this power and he only moved in the shadows, pulling strings from a distance, condemning persons to death who never heard of him and had no idea what they’d done wrong.

Sort of an early avatar of our own Deep State.

‘I Wanna Be in the Deep State When I Grow Up!’

Sometimes in a fallen world the state, authorized by God to protect its people from those who would harm them, has to resort to secrecy to carry out its mission. I don’t know how this moral distinction puzzles them: It’s okay to spy on the Chicoms. It’s not okay to spy on Americans at school board meetings.

Do we need a state to protect us from the state?

  1. “The state to protect us from the state” — oh yes, and the fox to guard our henhouse from the foxes. “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?”

  2. I don’t think we would , or will, receive protection from that bunch. When will people ever learn that “man” cannot protect them.? Our hope comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and earth.

  3. Indeed, we could. I just finished a short study on the life of David, as a man after God’s own heart.
