The sign of a tyrant

This is one of those things that always bothers me, as I watch movies, TV shows, video game, or read novels. I was watching one the other day, which I don’t even remember now, but it brought me back to this point, which is the title of this article.
What is it that shows a leader to be a tyrant?
What I was watching stated it was someone that placed their wishes and desires above the people. This was the sign of a tyrant. What really got to me, was the fact that there are people out there that think their actions and behavior are for the good of the people. That they are placing the people first, and they, with all their hearts, are acting for the common good of all. Yet in reality, they are not. They are so blind to the truth, that they do not even see their own tyrannical mentality, which is causing nothing but destruction to common people of a nation.
This blind self-serving mentality has been eating away at the United States of America and other nations for decades. Yet it has been the most visible for the last eight years as this nation has been run by a tyrant. Yes I said Barack Hussein Obama is a tyrant. Not because he is black, but because he does not acknowledge that there is a God. The Father of Jesus Christ.
When he came to power. Those like him upon the left of this nation. Felt they had been given a mandate. That it was time for humanity to reject God. They openly stated that those that follow the Bible needed to change how they viewed the world and their teachings of the Bible. That their views were the true views of humanity.
Hillary Clinton, another tyrant, made this very clear during her election. She felt that she had been ordained to become the next leader of the United Stated to carry on this great mandate that was begun by Obama. A mandate that would in time abolish the Christian beliefs and faith off the face of this earth. That the true religion to follow was the teaching and mandates of a religion that demanded the death of most that follow them blindly.
There are more tyrants in power today, than there has ever been in the past. Because most have forgotten, or in reality never knew, one of the most important teaching of the Bible, when it comes to picking a leader, who is human. These are the words of Jesus Christ on what a leader should be like:
Mark 10:42 – So Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. 43 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
What I really find sad. Is that I even hear those upon the left say these very same words, just in a different way. They ACTUALLY believe they are living this way. Yet they are not. When they spend over eighty million dollars of vacations for themselves with the money of those they are pledges to be a servant to. They are thinking only of themselves.
When they use their office to silence those that have an opposing view point to their own. They are thinking only of themselves.
Yet, to them, they are patriots. They ARE serving the people. Yet millions lose their jobs, and head into poverty. For there is only two classes. The ruling class, those within the government, and those that are to be ruled, the average person. This is the signs of tyranny.
This nation was founded upon Christian principles, teachings and mentality. This created the middle-class, for before this nation came to be their truly wasn’t what can be called the middle-class. Why this is, is because this was the first nation to truly seek for servant-leaders.
Are you aware that until 1855, except for 1815, congresses salary was $6 to $8 per year? Why is this? Because congress was made of servant-leaders. Once they started taking a salary, they became about themselves and not the people they were voted to represent. There are tyrants in congress and the senate as we speak. Reid, and Pelosi are prime examples of tyrants. Yet not all tyrants are on the left. There is McCain for example on the right and others, but I will leave that for you to decide on your own. Any who serve a lifetime in congress are professional politicians, and are in turn tyrants.
What can change this?
For starters, we need Christians to step up to the plate and take office. I don’t mean hypocrites who mouth the words of Christianity yet in reality live of and for the world. We need people who have studied the word of God and come to understand. That those in power are not placed there by a vote, by who they know or who they are related to, but by God.
Any who work of the government, no matter what level they work within were placed there by God, and they are accountable for their actions to God. Many people will awaken in a very warm place one day and never realize until that moment that they lived the wrong life. They lived the life of a tyrant, thinking they were serving the people. When in reality they were only serving themselves.
