THE CONSEQUENCES OF FRAUDULENT TRANSFER OF AUTHORITY
The Contemporary Church as Ahab and the State as its Jezebel
For many, the relationship between Ahab and Jezebel elucidates a drama wherein a vulnerable Ahab is victimized by the beguiling femininity of his lover, Jezebel. Neither presumption is true; they are co-dependent conspirators who harbor nefarious intent. Predisposed to fraudulent posturing, Ahab evinces dispassionate jurisdiction, whereas Jezebel predisposed to irrepressible prerogative savors fraudulent jurisdiction. They are catalytic accomplices, whose fraudulent-transfer-of-authority is devoid of moral fidelity.
DNA – a double-helix structure that contains unique genetic instructions present in every cell of the body – arises from the bonding of complimentary molecular agents. Ahab-Jezebel Syndrome – a double-helix psychosis that induces fraudulent-transfer-of-authority – arises from complimentary disposition (immorality) and spiritual mutation (deception), which portends disaster for Social, Sacred, and Secular institutions.
Like a low-grade fever that precedes the onset of debilitating infection, Ahab-Jezebel- Syndrome first entreats collaboration (fever) and then acts to impose subordination (infection). Ahab-Churches unceremoniously surrender their jurisdiction to the dominion of Jezebel-States (government, business, media, academia), who greet fraudulent-transfer-of-authority with both a sense of rightful expectancy and finality.
Induced by the spirit of immorality and deception to dispossess authority, the contemporary church has abdicated its responsibility for moral oversight of: politics, culture, education, economics, and sexuality. Addicted to wanting-what-it-wants, Jezebel-States alone fill the vacuums; they act aggressively to institutionalize these windfalls of authority, which enable them to define success, failure, and spirituality as they so choose. All except staged-contention is vilified as barbarism and social sacrilege.
Repudiating the sovereignty of the source, fraudulent transfers of authority between Church and State are represented as – occasions were enlightened lovers experience beneficial and enduring cohabitation. These lovers trust the cultural and political devices they employ will obfuscate the immorality and deception that inspires their union.
While the State has gained jurisdiction as sole moral arbiter of its own decisions and behavior, the Church has gained but trinkets: lumps of coal in their capital stockings and photo-ops that only impersonate power sharing. With jurisdiction of both capital and moral authority, States seek final consolidation – radical transformation of the Family.
If the only One with the power to sanction these institutions is yet cogent and sovereign, will there be rectification? Jezebel-States are actually the boots who march to the beat of Ahab-Church dysfunction. Having bartered away actual for titular authority, garnering little more than a muzzle and blindfold – the Church had better batten its hatches.
So she [Jezebel] wrote letters in Ahab’s name, placed his seal on them, and sent them
