Foolishly

Saul had foolishly forced the sacrifice of the people so that he could defend Israel from the Philistines. While this was the fulfillment of the 1 Samuel 8 prophecy that rulers given power to take would take and take and take it also marked the curse of all governments who covet.

Rulers do Foolishly

1 Samuel 13:13 “And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the LORD thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the LORD have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. But now thy kingdom shall not continue:”

Samuel told Saul that his kingdom would not last because he was foolish enough to force the offerings of the people.[1]

Corrupting Power

Saul was given power to exercise authority over the people by the people. While the people gave him that power to be used for their own slothful and wantonness purposes, God had told them that the power would corrupt their leaders and themselves.

The centralizing of power would tempt the powerful to covet more power and the slothful would become more complacent and wanton.

This desire to elect a leader who could exercise authority over the people was a rejection[2] of God's kingdom. In God's government taxation comes in the form of voluntary tithes which are freewill offerings granted to a "called out" group identified as Levites. That Tithe to the individual Levite was the result of an individual choice of the people and "according to their service" to the people. That syste will oly wor among people who actually and actively love their neighbor as themselves. The Kingdom of God is from generation to generation and the right to choose for ourselves, which we call liberty, is a gift from God. When we give the power to choose for us to others we are turning from the responsibilities that are correlative to our God given rights.

When the people elected to give their right to choose to one man or even a group of men they were abandoning God in spirit and in truth. The side effect of this is that the leaders will be corrupted and we as a society will become weak and beggarly.[3]

The blind leading the blind creates a company of fools.

The covetous practices of the people would degenerate them into "perfect savages" as predicted by Polybius and bring about the spirit of despotic tyranny where the people are willing to take a bite out of one another for the love of the wages of unrighteousness.


"Will history ask when reviewing our generation “What manner of men had lived in those days...who had so eagerly surrendered their sovereignty for a lie and a delusion? Why had they been so anxious to believe that the government could solve problems for them which had been pridefully solved, many times over, by their fathers? Had their characters become so weak and debased, so craven and emasculated, that offers of government dole had become more important than their liberty and their humanity? Had they not know that power delegated to the government becomes the club of tyrants? They must have known. They had their own history to remember, and the history of five thousand years. Yet, they had willingly and knowingly, with all this knowledge, declared themselves unfit to manage their own affairs and had placed their lives, which belonged to God only, in the hands of sinister men who had long plotted to enslave them, by wars, by "directives," by "emergencies." In the name of the American people, the American people had been made captive.” ― Taylor Caldwell, Devils Advocate


Power to take

Basically what is happening is the people are desiring to take from their neighbor, to force their neighbor to give that which was originally their neighbors to the leader so that the leader could guarantee their personal security. This is the essence of covetousness and the Bible and the prophets warn us against this over and over again.[4]

Saul would eventually repent of that foolishness 1 Samuel 26:21 "Then said Saul, I have sinned: return, my son David: for I will no more do thee harm, because my soul was precious in thine eyes this day: behold, I have played the fool, and have erred exceedingly."

But David would do the same not only in the case of Bethsheba but would sin against the whole nation when he tried to institute a draft which was the prophecy of Samuel. He too would repent,[5] The willingness of the people to force the sons and daughters of their neighbors to labor and even die for their protection and welfare is an egregious sin against God and our fellow man. It is so common in the nations of the world and accepted by the people that without repentance all mankind's days are as numbered by their foolishness as they have desired to number their fellowman.

All men will have to face the temptations of exercising authority one over the other either as rulers or voters in a democracy. Today, we are taught that it is a good thing to apply to the authoritarian benefactors who force the contributions and sacrifices of the people, even though when Saul did that he was called “foolish” by Samuel and a violator of the commandments of the LORD thy God because he set to forcing the offering of the people in a system of Corban that would make the word of God to none effect.

Once a ruler does this he will take and take and take like 1 Samuel 8 tells us and the people will become humane resources and a surety for debt. They will be little more than Merchandise and their children will be cursed because of their Covetous Practices of impure Religion in a form of public religion through the state.

  • "And spake to them after the counsel of the young men, saying, My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke: my father [also] chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions." 1 Kings 12:14
We are supposed to Repent and if we did then we could answer the question
Abraham, Moses, John the Baptist and Jesus and the early Church advocated a Daily ministration that was dependent on Charity only and it was not like the system of Corban of the Pharisees and Rome.
  • Do you only gather for the comfort it gives you, or do you gather to benefit others?
  • Christ came to serve, not be served. Do you desire to be served or are you coming in His name and according to His character to serve others?

If we desire His Grace but we only love those who love us then there is no Grace because it is clear we do not really believe in Him.

If we do not Repent of our Covetous Practices and are not diligently gathering together in Free Assemblies of Love for all to provide for one another in Charity according to the Perfect law of liberty then we have nothing according to Paul. According to Luke 6:32 if we only love those who love us there is no "Grace". Christ also said if you do not Forgive neither will the Father forgive you.[6]

It is not enough to hate the deeds of the workers of iniquity, but we must return to Thy first love and thy first work. To break the yoke we need to return to the ways of righteousness spoken of in Isaiah 58 which are the ways of Christ and the early Church. And His yoke is light for it is carried by our love of one another.

Abraham, Moses, John the Baptist and Christ all created Networks of charity to care for the true needy of society without force which is how they were able to help set people free. Do you gather with His Church to attend to the Weightier matters as Christ said?

  • Are you gathering in a Network of righteousness?
  • Do you come to love others or just be loved?

Early Christians found themselves in conflict with these systems of social welfare because they made the word of God to none effect. Christians had repented of their covetous nature when they received the Baptism of Christ. They heard and became Doers of the word not hearers only.

Remember Proverbs 12:24, "The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the Slothful shall be under Tribute."

We know that liberty under God is not for the covetous who are Biting one another but it is also not for the slothful. If we are not congregating together in free assemblies bound together in a broad network by faith, hope, and charity alone according to the perfect law of liberty then we are not truly seeking the Kingdom of God nor His righteousness.

New Testament

In the New Testament we see.

The whole context of the statement is about anger with brethren and calling them fool which is the word moros which can mean a fool in the sense of impious, godless. But there are many fools that are not brethren and Christ and the Bible say so. He speaks of the foolish virgins and Paul uses the word to express that a christian is willing to be considered fools by the world as if called a name because they believe in Christ.
