Theocratically amend the United Nations’ charter.

Theocratically amend the United Nations’ charter.

1. Before continuing in this article or any article in this blog, I recommend that you read the article entitled, Lakewoodites for McCartney: (which was originally written when I was running for a seat on the city’s council,) otherwise the paragraphs that are numbered 2 – 5, and 77 – 78, and 81 of that article. But persons ought to know that they (and you) are responsible, (although some act recklessly,) and ought to act responsibly. If you choose to only read those seven (7) paragraphs, for your convenience you may read the page called, Preface.

2. For your information, the following paragraph was the one hundred and third (103rd) article of the charter of the United Nations (U. N.) that was included in a dictionary of the year of 1979.

In the event of a conflict between the obligations of the members of the United Nations under the present Charter and any other international obligations to which they are subject, their obligations under the present Charter shall prevail.

3. Other than that, I have in this article presented five (5) forms pertaining to the 103rd article of the charter of the U. N. The following is a link to that charter.

http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/index.shtml

4. Form 1.

The present one hundred and third (103rd) article of the charter of the United Nations (U. N.) is the following paragraph.

In the event of a conflict between the obligations of the Members of the United Nations under the present Charter and their obligations under any other international agreement, their obligations under the present Charter shall prevail.

5. Form 2.

The current 103rd article of the charter of the United Nations is the following paragraph: but the parts that I propose to be changed are emboldened.

In the event of a conflict between the obligations of the Members of the United Nations under the present Charter and their obligations under any other international agreement, their obligations under the present Charter shall prevail.

6. Form 3.

The following two (2) paragraphs are my present proposal in addition to the current article: but the parts that I am proposing changing pertaining to the current 103rd article of the United Nations’ charter have been emboldened.

      1.    In the event of a conflict between the obligations of the Members of the United Nations under the present Charter and their obligations under any other international agreement, their obligations under the present Charter shall prevail.

      2.    The Creator of heaven and earth is the God of Israel and the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. The holy scriptures, (the scriptures) which include the law of God, are the Christian Bible of the old and new testaments, which is expressed in the King James Version. To obey the Creator, defend Christianity from ungodly laws, and produce godly and blessed nations, no thing in this charter shall be contrary to the law of God, and the rest of the scriptures. If any thing in this charter conflicts with the scriptures, the scriptures shall prevail.

7. Form 4.

The following two (2) paragraphs are the combined current 103rd article of the United Nations’ charter and my proposal, with the proposed additions underlined.

      1.    In the event of a conflict between the obligations of the Members of the United Nations under the present Charter and their obligations under any other international agreement, their obligations under the present Charter shall prevail.

      2.    The Creator of heaven and earth is the God of Israel and the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. The holy scriptures, (the scriptures) which include the law of God, are the Christian Bible of the old and new testaments, which is expressed in the King James Version. To obey the Creator, defend Christianity from ungodly laws, and produce godly and blessed nations, no thing in this charter shall be contrary to the law of God, and the rest of the scriptures. If any thing in this charter conflicts with the scriptures, the scriptures shall prevail.

8. Form 5.

The following title and two (2) paragraphs are how the 103rd article of the charter of the United Nations should appear if the proposal to amend that article is ratified.

Article 103

      1.    In the event of a conflict between the obligations of the Members of the United Nations under the present Charter and their obligations under any other international agreement, their obligations under the present Charter shall prevail.

      2.    The Creator of heaven and earth is the God of Israel and the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. The holy scriptures, (the scriptures) which include the law of God, are the Christian Bible of the old and new testaments, which is expressed in the King James Version. To obey the Creator, defend Christianity from ungodly laws, and produce godly and blessed nations, no thing in this charter shall be contrary to the law of God, and the rest of the scriptures. If any thing in this charter conflicts with the scriptures, the scriptures shall prevail.

9. The file name of my proposed new second (2nd) paragraph to article 103 of the charter of the U. N. is 2009.12.14.2a.

10. Of course not all members of the U. N. will agree with my proposal. But not all of the citizens agree with the present charter. In either case there are going to be dissatisfied parties.

11. Although I am not necessarily attempting to displease some of the people, the people are creatures. The important person to consider and please is the Creator, which I have reasons to think to be the God of Israel, who is the Father of his Son the Lord Jesus Christ. God, or the Creator, is superior to us: we are subject unto him, and therefore ought to act in a way that is according to our inferior position.

12. Although I don’t always obey the scriptures, I assay (attempt) to. And I encourage you to obey God by obeying his written word.

13. We creatures are necessarily subject unto our Creator. Sir William Blackstone, Kt., understood that. In his Commentaries on the Laws of England he showed that, according to the edition edited by William Carey Jones. Of book I, which is in volume I, the title of the second section of the introduction is, Of the Nature of Laws in General. In § 38 of that, the title of which is, Law as a rule of human action, the Honourable Mister Justice (so called) Blackstone wrote that in the first sentence of the second paragraph, which is the following. Man, considered as a creature, must necessarily be subject to the laws of his Creator, for he is entirely a dependent being.

14. Based on the scriptures that I have read, best expressed in the King James Version, I think that one of the reasons why some or all of the various nations have the problems that we have is because of our (including America) disobedience to the will of God that is expressed in writing in the holy scriptures.

15. Nations ought to understand that. The various nations have laws, and unpleasant consequences when those laws are disobeyed. God has a law. And when his law is disobeyed, it is understandable that there can be unpleasant consequences.

16. Considering Hebrews 7:12 and John 1:29, I recognise that some of God’s law was changed by the new testament. The sacrifice of animals for sin was abrogated: (nullified) for Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

17. Some of the problems that some or all of the nations on God’s earth have are the following. Irreverence and ungodliness, idolatry, selfishness, covetousness, greed, poverty, lack of health, famine, harsh weather, (such as droughts, strong winds and floods,) earthquakes, infidelity, lust, immorality, crime and violence, racial affliction, and wars.

18. Some or all of our problems are because of our disobedience to the scriptures. Some of the politicians ignore sound scriptural advice, and would rather do things their way. (For that you may consider Job 34:17,27 and Daniel 11:3.) And some of the people that vote for them have the same attitude. (A bad people can get bad rulers according to I Samuel 8.) Too many of the people would rather live their lives their way than God’s way. Having some of our problems is an high price to pay for doing things our way rather than God’s way.

19. Lessons can be learned from the old testament people of God, and the God of Israel. I am thinking that the various nations could be blessed by God if we obey the commandments of God. But if we continue to go astray, I think that we can expect our present problems to continue.

20. Some of the scriptures that I consider for this proposal to improve the United Nations’ charter are the following. Genesis 1:1; 9:1; 10:8-10; 11:1-9, Exodus 12:12; 20:1-3, Leviticus 26, Deuteronomy 28, Joshua 21:43-45, II Kings 17, Psalm 1:1-3; 2:1-12; 7:8-9; 9:17-20; 10:16; 11:2-3; 12:3-8; 18:20-30; 19:7-11; 21:7; 22:26-31; 24:1; 33:4-5,12, Proverbs 3:5-6, Isaiah 1:16-20; 2:1-5; 8:20; 9:6-7; 10:1-4; 11:1-6; 13:9-14; 14:5-7,26-27; 16:3,5; 24:5-6,21; 26:2; 28:26,29; 30:1-2,8-13,18-23; 31:1-3; 32:1,13-17; 33:22; 40:8,10-11,13-31; 42:1-9,21,24-25; 43:8-12,15; 44:8-21; 45:5-13,20-23; 46:5-13; 47:10; 48:17-19,22; 55:8-11; 58:1-14; 59:19; 60:12; 61:11; 66:18,23, Jeremiah 3:1-4, Daniel 2:44, Mark 1:1, Luke 2:33, John 3:16,35, Acts 5:29, Romans 1:25, I Corinthians 11:3, Philippians 2:9-11, I John 5:7, Revelation 11:15, and other scriptures.

21. If those are too many scriptures for you, I recommend Deuteronomy 28. If that chapter is too long for you, I recommend the second (2nd) psalm. If you only have time to read one verse of the Bible, I recommend Psalm 9:17. But I recommend that you (both the people and politicians) set aside the time to regularly read the Bible, learn it, and practise it.

22. In modern times the nations may consider the United States of America. America basically obeyed God. And apparently God blessed America. Persons of various nations, and of Christian and nonchristian beliefs, came to America. Not to imply that the people always choose rightly, that is one indication that can be used to show that a Christian society and government, or a society and government based on Christianity, are superior.

23. Christians and nonchristians are better under accountable Christian rulership that is according to the scriptures. You may consider the audio and visual presentation at the following link.

24. But recently we Americans have been disobeying God, which includes politicians that are enacting some ungodly laws, and judges which have crossed the line by some ungodly judgments. And apparently God has cursed America.

25. The Bible is not only for the church; it is for living by and governing in the world without (outside of) church building walls. In addition to being a book of salvation, the scriptures are about law and government. The scriptures have the the law of God in the four (4) books of Exodus through Deuteronomy. In that law there are instructions about how to govern a nation. And the Bible has an history of how God blessed the Israelites when they obeyed the commandments of God. The scriptures also have an history of God cursing the Israelites when they disobeyed his commandments, and lived their lives their way.

26. An example of following the scriptures to improve our world is to stop illicit copulation. Sex without marriage is wrong, such as fornication according to I Corinthians 6:9-10. If persons stop committing fornication, there should be no children born outside of marriage. That should decrease crime, the population, the consumption of resources, and poverty. Various problems could be solved by following two (2) verses from the Bible.

27. Both the Israelites and Americans can be used to teach the nations a lesson that it is better to obey the God of Israel and the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ according to the scriptures.

28. In addition to the scriptures mentioned, a scripture for your consideration is Jeremiah 12:17, which is the following sentence. But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD. That could be said about most if not all of the nations on this earth. If you wonder why some unpleasant things are happening to your nation, you might consider those events in the light of that scripture.

29. If the various peoples on the earth would like to believe in the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, I would like that. But whether they do or not, I think that all nations could be better if we and they obey the commandments of the God of Israel, and practise the teachings of his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

30. Jesus is not only the Messiah or Christ, he is also the Lord under God. We are subject unto him. God made his Son Jesus Christ to be above us. According to Acts 2:36 it is written, Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

31. Because the charter of the United Nations is amendable, if a theonomic or theocratic Christian amendment is ratified, and if the nations practise the holy scriptures, and if God blesses the nations for our obedience, if after being God blessed the nations prefer their ways and to be cursed, I suppose that that theocratic amendment could be repealed.

32. We have practised various ideas of creatures. Where has that taken us? I think that if we creatures obey our Creator, that God will probably bless us. If that occurs, I hope that we will continue to have the good sense to continue to handle matters God’s way.

33. But getting God’s blessings ought not to be the primary motive. We creatures ought to obey our Creator because it is right. We ought to consider that which God provided for us, and love him for it. If you love some one, you seek to please that person.

34. If you would like to try that, I suggest that you read and practise the scriptures, request your politicians to show the truth in their legislation, which is the superiority of the law of God and the rest of the scriptures; and request your country’s ambassador or representative to the United Nations to amend the charter of the U. N. to show that the law of God and the rest of the scriptures are superior to the charter.

35. Pertinent articles for amending the charter of the U. N. are 108 and 109 of chapter XVIII.

36. My thanks to you for taking the time to read this, and to consider this proposal.

37. Since initially posting this article, for the convenience of persons that read other languages, I am adding some paragraphs to this article, to show my proposed new paragraph, in other languages, that is to be added to the charter of the U. N.

38. I do not guarantee the accuracy of the following translations into other languages. English is my standard. My thanks to the internet translation services that can be used at the links that are under this paragraph. Although I used those services, they were not the only sources for all of the translations that are presented here. Basically I entered the text into the box for the initial language, chose the target language, (language to be translated into) and had the translator translate it. It was as fast as clicking my fingers. To check it, I then took that translation, and had it translated back into the first (1st) language, which is English. If I found problems, I worked on them, such as breaking up a sentence, rewording some of the initial statement, or using books.

39. I don’t always follow the advice of others. But if one has advice, I attempt to listen. If any person thinks that he or she (he) can improve any of the translations that are presented here, you may submit your suggestions. Thanks to you.

40. The security council of the U. N. uses the six (6) languages of Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish. [Five (5) of those languages are mentioned in article 111.] Some pertinent rules of the security council are 41 and 42, under chapter VIII called, Languages, of the provisional rules of procedure of the security council. Those rules are dated for 1983. They can be found at the following link.
