ARISE! STAND ON YOUR FEET!


THIS IS A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH!
through Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"
THE CHURCH OF OUR FATHERS

[First Published: The Voice of Theophilus: Official Publication of the National Interfaith Pro-Life Crusade, Encino, California, December 8, 1976.]

For this reason, you have been called:
To appoint you as a witness not only to the things which you have seen but also to the things which will appear to you.

Beloved of God: We are told that we are weak --- unable to withstand so strong an adversary as Fear. It is said that you will keep on hearing, but will not understand, and you will keep on seeing, but will not perceive; for they say your hearts have become dull, and have ears that can scarcely hear, and have closed eyes; It is said that you have seen many things, but you do not observe them; your ears are open, but none hears; that you see through a glass darkly. But the darkness is past and the time has come to speak plainly. We are being put to death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.

Hear this! On Monday, January 22, 1973, seven members of THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT ruled that the killing of an unborn child is an act protected by THE CONSTITUTION. Six million killings later --- SIX MILLION CONSTITUTIONALLY SANCTIONED KILLINGS LATER --- on Monday, August 30, 1976, abortion legislation, which was conceived in contraception, gave birth to the Nation’s first RIGHT-TO-DIE Bill. On October 1, 1976, Governor Jerry Brown of the State of California signed that bill!

By what authority are these things being done? Who are these men who dare to judge “the quality of human life?” The authority is certainly not from GOD, because GOD teaches --- GOD COMMANDS! “THOU SHALT NOT KILL!” By what authority, do men reputed for wisdom, who do not even know what life is, have the right to define what a meaningful life is?

What is Life? If you believe in GOD, then GOD is Life. If you believe there is no GOD, then you can only answer, “I do not know.” If you do not know what Life is, then how can you judge from ignorance? If you judge from opinion, as did the Court, and deny Life its expression, then you would deny GOD’s existence. If you deny GOD’s existence, then you should be ineligible for a position of authority in our system of government, for this nation is “ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.” If an opinion is based on ignorance, on “I do not know!”, then those who force this opinion on others more ignorant than themselves, have failed in their responsibility to favor reasonable doubt.

"Men in authority who fail to do their duty must be replaced. They are as guilty as those who commit crimes because they fail in their responsibility to their fellow men who are unable to protect themselves."


A man reputed for wisdom knows nothing and thinks that he knows. The perfection of human wisdom is knowledge of one’s ignorance of divine knowledge. We must take refuge in the unity of GOD’s quality against every quality. If a man thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing, yet as he ought to know. It is only KNOWLEDGE that flies on two wings; OPINION has but one! OPINION is, therefore, defective and curtailed in flight.

Why then, have these men of the Court accepted the responsibility for six million killings? Why have these men pridefully accepted the blood of six million killings, and dared to forgive the sins of willful murderers by marking for death those that are witnesses to their sins? The answer is PRIDE, the father of deadly sin! Is it not written, “Nor shall the children be put to death for their fathers; everyone shall be put to death for his own sin." Why did not these men employ the very same rhetoric, logic, and cogency of argument, which they use to prevent their own forced retirement from the Court, which they feel is unfair, to protect the sanctity of human life, not only in the Court but wherever human life is found? Does it not seem absurd that the unborn has no right to be defended? Or at least, to indicate the charges against it that are not based on opinion, expediency, or profit? No one has the right to become arrogant in behalf of one against another. For who regards another as superior? Is it not true that by One Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Christians, whether we be bound in our mother’s womb or free; and have been all made to drink into One Spirit? Is it not true that the life which dwells within the temple we call our bodies is the Spirit of GOD? Is it not true that if any man destroys the temple of GOD, GOD will destroy him, for the temple is holy, and that is what the body is? Do not foolishly regard the children of the flesh as the children of GOD. It is the children of the Promise, or the Spirit (through Isaac), who are regarded as descendants. Who pridefully places himself above GOD to bring a charge against GOD’s elect? Who is the one who condemns? Who is Man that he dares to answer back to GOD?

If it were a matter of wrong or vicious crime, it would be reasonable for the Court to judge the deed. But this is one of questions about words and names. The Court should have been unwilling to judge Nouns by their Adjectives. The charges are simply points of disagreement about the accusers’ own religion. And do not mistake Atheism for anything other than belief in GOD, because if they do not believe in GOD, then who is it they believe in to deny?

Why do they seek to kill the unborn? Why do they judge according to appearance, rather than with righteous judgment? Is it not the Spirit which gives life? The flesh profits nothing. They seek to kill the unborn because our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against error / falseness / confusion / ignorance / fear / doubt / darkness ---PRIDE! Nor can the charges of which the unborn is accused be proven. If an innocent unborn baby has committed anything worthy of death, the baby would not refuse to die; but if none the things is true of which the baby is accused, no one can hand him over to death.

But the unborn has no right to speak on his own behalf. This right has been denied him. For all of the things of which he is accused, he cannot speak! No answer can be given; not even to a single charge!

Woe to lawyers who enact evil statutes, and to those who constantly record unjust decisions. For the Court has exchanged the Truth of GOD for a lie. Professing to be wise, they have become as fools and exchanged the glory of incorruptible GOD for an image in the form of serpents. Note, too, the replacement of the Aesculapius (rt), the traditional symbol of the medical profession’s noblest ideals, with the Caduceus (left): “I call (or lead) to Death.” And though they know the Law of GOD, that those who practice such things as the taking of an innocent life are worthy of death, they have given hearty approval to those who practice them. Therefore, anyone who passes judgment is without excuse; for if you judge. . do you suppose that you will escape The Judgment of GOD?

What man has the authority to judge GOD’s quality? There is no authority except from GOD, and those which exist are established by GOD! Therefore, let us all be in subjection to GOD, the giver of authority. It is not the wish of GOD that one of these little babies should perish. Their very existence witnesses the fact that GOD intended to create a human being, and to deprive a nascent human of life is MURDER! What evil have they done? Why have they been classed among criminals?

Fifty million innocent babies have been slaughtered since January 22, 1973. By oppression and judgment, fifty million lambs of GOD were taken away, cut off from the living, killed for the sins of their parents, burned, made into cosmetic soap, assigned garbage cans for graves, though they had done no wrong; nor spoken any falsehood.

Weep now for yourselves and for your children. The days are coming when it will be said: “Blessed are the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.” Because if life is not safe, even in the mother’s womb. . . “For if they do these things when the wood is green, what will happen in the dry?”

The time has come to bear aloft the Sacred Host and collapse the Great Delusion of Fear whose threatening is a terror to the heart. Though nations are terrified by the signs of the heavens, do not fear them, for they are false and can do no harm. We THREE MILLION SOULS, who answered the Herald’s call to join THE NATIONAL INTERFAITH PRO-LIFE CRUSADE, are but the first of those to keep ourselves in the love of GOD, waiting anxiously for Our Lord Jesus Christ to reveal the Father’s Will for us. The second wave of three million souls is now preparing to also put on the full armor of GOD to withstand the schemes of darkness.

We THREE MILLION CHAMPIONS FOR LIFE, members of the NATIONAL INTERFAITH PRO-LIFE CRUSADE, armed in the strength of Hope for the promises of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, our faith evidenced by our works, loving one another as we were commanded to do, dedicated to the noblest of callings: the Mission of Mercy to the helpless, commit ourselves to serve as the instrument of GOD’s WILL.

THIS CRUSADE, which was launched August 1, 1976, owes its genesis to the inspiration of Archbishop Joseph L. Bernardine’s fearless example of devotion to moral principle, and we THREE MILLION share the conviction of the American Bishops, and have paid to support this conviction, that “the Supreme Court has challenged GOD’s Authority by daring to judge the quality of Human Life.” We believe that what GOD has joined together, this body of men, appointed by a man, cannot undo. We further believe that to deny human rights to those who are incapacitated, for any reason, on the basis of their “legal” competence is wrong. In terms of moral teaching, we THREE MILLION CHAMPIONS FOR LIFE, fully and actively support the American Bishop’s declaration that “the opinion of the Court is wrong, and is entirely contrary to the fundamental principles of morality.”

We are fifty million souls, armed in the holy cause of THE TWO GREAT COMMANDMENTS; devoted to THE WORD OF GOD, with faith in GOD’s love for us. Is this a minority? 22.8% of the over-all UNITED STATES population? Together we are invincible by any force which our adversary, Death, can send against us. WE SHALL NOT FIGHT THIS BATTLE ALONE. There is a just GOD who presides over the destinies of men who walk in His love. There is no retreat from moral principle but in submission and slavery. Cowards may wish to extend the matter and cry, “Compromise, Compromise!” But there is no compromise. GOD’s sorrow has already begun! Our brothers, our baby brothers, whom GOD has commanded that we love, are already being slaughtered upon the Field of Death; OUR GRAVES ARE ALREADY DUG! The stench of Death and Burned Babies is reeking from every Death Mill in the world. The Holy War between Life and Death is not only inevitable, IT IS HERE! SO LET IT BE! Let us firmly resolve to not stand by disoriented; to support the moral teachings of the American Bishops. Is life so sweet and compromise so dear as to be purchased at the price of GOD’s Children? FORBID IT ALMIGHTY GOD! “STRIKE DOWN THE SHEPHERD AND SCATTER THE SHEEP!!”

I penned the words of "ARISE STAND ON YOUR FEET" in 1976 in a stream of consciousness, driven to do so by an Unseen Force (name it what you will). Because it is, in fact, a kind of automatic writing, i.e., I was merely the holder of the pen, thus unable to take credit for authorship, I bylined it as "through Steve Savage "King of the Beasts", rather than "by Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"." It is the publication of "ARISE STAND ON YOUR FEET," which resulted in my Kafkaesque trial, imprisonment, and surreal Existence, in which I now find myself. Shakespeare was so right when he said, "We know what we are, but not what we may be."
