Pfeiffer to Stephanopoulos: "The law is irrelevant"





Earlier Pfeiffer declared Obama’s actions in the immediate aftermath of Benghazi are irrelevant, now we know he considers the law to be irrelevant as well. That’s a startling statement for a spokesman for the President of the United States to make. But, sadly, given that Obama presides over a lawless presidency, I’m quite sure Pfeiffer believes it. If there’s anything we’ve learned over the past four and a half years of the Obama regime, it’s that they don’t feel constrained in the least by such antiquated constitutional concepts as the separation of power or the rule of law. Why, then, would they think the law is relevant when it comes to the IRS’s targeting of Obama’s political opponents?

      Yes, some of us were uncomfortable when we found out Obama was friends with a violent domestic terrorist.

    Lawlessness is rewarded by this cockeyed administration by executive order!……….crony capitalism with tax payer money, promotions to all who break the law- salary and bonuses paid by tax payers, illegal immigration- free stuff from the tax payers, terrorists- government subsidies, best lawyers and medical care tax payers can buy.

    Law abiding religious citizens……targets for the revengeful leader to harass and try to control.

    obama has shoved lawlessness down Our throats long enough. The money from the givers needs to stop………. A week of no work/no taxes would knock DC down a peg.

    A great example of the Big Lie, which the Nazi tried to master as a propaganda technique. Tell an outrageous lie so that a majority of people will be shocked and wonder how the left could tell such outrageous lies and then repeat them over and over again until those same people will not be shocked anymore and thus percieve the lie to be the truth.

    And methinks there is no proper way to fight the Big Lie. That is why the left could get away with these outrageous lies.

    My Scripture reading this morning describes perfectly who these folks are:

    "Because that which may be known of God is manifest to them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. PROFESSING THEMSELVES TO BE WISE, THEY BECAME FOOLS, …Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie,….For this cause God gave them up into vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which is meet.

    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenentbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful;

    Doesn’t Romans 1 describ them to a tee?

      You hit it on the head. At our Mass this morning we got the readings related to Pentecost Sunday. We learned about the Holy Spirit as the great advocate that Christ announced the Father would send us after Christ went to Heaven. Christ ORDERED his disciples not to disband and scatter to the winds in fear after his death and resurrection. He told them to stay in dangerous, chaotic crisis atmosphere Jerusalem and await the coming of the Holy Spirit. Pentecost.

      Our Gospel was about how Jesus told them that if they lived in Him the Spirit would come to them and be with them. The Spirit would enliven them. These were Galileans who all spoke one language. After the tongues of fire descended on them they boldly went out to preach the Gospel. The disciples from many different countries speaking several different languages heard the Galileans preaching to them in their own language.

      The key to the presence of the Holy Spirit is if the person lives in Christ. If you don’t live in Christ you don’t have the Holy Spirit.

      The Priest in his sermon on the readings talked about the phrase "to live in the Flesh." He said people think that’s about sex. He had a one word comment. NONSENSE. People either live in the flesh or they live in the Spirit. That is, either they accept Christ as Lord and Savior and attempt to live Christ like lives day in and day out in everything they do and say and in how they treat others and thus have the gift of the Advocate Holy Spirit guiding and strengthening them or they don’t.

      If one lives a life in the Spirit through membership in the body of Christ then he or she gets the gifts of the Spirit. And what does that bring?

      This sermon is pretty close to what I heard this morning:

      http://gracebibleny.org/living_in_the_flesh_vs_living_in_the_spirit

      "Yes, as Romans 7:14-25 points out, Christians still struggle against the sin that still exists within what Paul refers to as the "flesh," that part of us that remains corrupt while awaiting final redemption when we go to heaven. Yet, the believer has a new nature that is in conflict with this flesh and he fights against it. The unregenerate cannot do that for they are slaves to sin. Even their best efforts to do good fall short and are filthy before our holy God. They cannot "joyfully concur with the law in the inner man" (7:22). The true Christian does do this for he recognizes the spiritual nature of the law, and even though it reminds him of his continual failure to live in perfect holiness, he now strives to fulfill the law out of his love for God. Though the body of flesh still struggles with sin, the Christian’s mind is set on "serving the law of God" (7:25)."

      The true Christian has the Holy Spirit dwelling within them (8:11) as part of the new covenant. Non-Christians and those with false professions of faith do not. As I pointed out from verse 9 last week, either you have the Holy Spirit and you belong to Christ, or you don’t and you are not a Christian. Anyone who teaches that the Holy Spirit comes upon the Christian as a separate act sometime subsequent to salvation is teaching a false doctrine. 1 Cor. 12:13 even makes it clear that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit comes upon the believer at salvation, otherwise they are not part of Christ’s body.

      The true evidence of the Holy Spirit’s presence in a person is seen in the fruit of the Spirit which Paul lists in Galatians 5:22,23 – love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. How is that fruit generated in the Christian? It arises from the mind set of the individual, which in turn reveals the true spiritual nature of the person. The mind set on the flesh is death, for it is hostile to God (8:6,7). The mind set on the Spirit is life and peace. The importance of having a proper mind set in order to live for Christ and evidence true salvation cannot be stressed enough. That is why Paul stresses it again here in verse 12.

      What is the evidence of living in the flesh? I spoke about this briefly last week and pointed out Galatians 5:1-21. "Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like." This cannot be considered a comprehensive list for Paul adds on a qualifier at the end, "and the like," that tells us there are more things that could be
      listed. This is rather a sample of areas where the flesh leads."

      It’s all about a mind set. And the evidence of what mind set you have–whether you are anchored in Christ and the Holy Spirit and Living In the Spirit or whether you are Living In the Flesh of this world is the fruit of your actions. By their fruits you shall know them.

      What does this have to do with the Dan Pfeiffers of the world? It requires a certain MIND SET to utter something like–law is irrelevant.

      It is a visible sign of a lawless mind set. It is evidence of Living In the Flesh. It means you are not Living in Christ or Living in the Spirit. Hatred, contentions, jealousies, envy, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, disunity —Race/Class/Gender/Religion/Age division executed by a polarizing campaign fueled by Fear/Envy/Hate/Anger/Revenge–is evidence of Living in the Flesh.

      No Christ there. No Holy Spirit there. No God the Father there. No Pentecost there. Atheism and actual hatred of God there.

      Atheists and those Living in the Flesh with the accompanying mind set and visible fruits are drawn toward Marxism as an organizing principle for an otherwise chaotic Life in the Flesh. The lack of control and lascivious visible fruits have to be tamed somehow. If not by moral laws from the Supreme Being then by the tyrannical laws of the dictatorship of the Proletariat and modern day Stalins, Hitlers and Maos.

      We are seeing the visible fruits of Living in the Flesh every single day in the Marxist Obama Administration. In the words, deeds, lies, evasions and MIND SET of the President and the President’s men and women. It is just as St Paul described it. We know them by their fruits. Benghazi. IRS. AP. Obamacare. All of it.

      For those of us attempting to live our lives in Christ and in the Spirit the battle goes on. There is a price to be paid. But we are determined to live in a society that lives in Christ and in the Spirit and benefits from the visible fruits of an existence promised by that commitment and effort as described above–the fruit of the Spirit which Paul lists in Galatians 5:22,23 – love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. "and the like".

      It’s a mind set we strive for. The Marxists don’t get it. Even if they did they would hate and despise and ridicule us for the attempt. This we see borne out with every passing day.

    If it is irrelevant, then why lie about it?

    Of course he is correct. Violating the law is irrelevant because we no longer have the rule of law. Obama has instituted the rule of the regime.
