Libertarians let God deal with “sin”: God always did, and always will

Libertarian philosophy supports those who would live godly in Christ Jesus.
If the N.A.P. is respected by the larger society, it would work this way.

In the ideal libertarian world, there would be no government for two reasons.

All governments as we understand them today are merely territories held by a group of individuals, where said group makes decisions and enforces them on everybody else, the other individuals; two, there would be no “commons”, all property would belong to individuals, with one individual owning each “unit of property”, whether directly himself, or indirectly by way of an agreement among a group of individuals.

In a sense, then, the “property domain” of each individual –or family unit, for example– would be “governed” by the property owner. So the property owner would not only take over the functions that make government necessary according to most thin and thick statists. Plus, they would have all the functions that today are considered generally prerogatives of ownership.

The other reason is that each property owner would have the right to acquire all the means of self-defense he considered necessary, including agreements with such neighbors as he pleases.

In my opinion the Amish have a good model for this, even though they might be easy prey if they were to live surrounded by conquerors. They only threat they present is an ideological one, meaning their ideas and independence and faith can “infect” others, from the point of view of tyrants. So they will be somewhere on any tyrant’s hit list.

But generally, “birds of a feather flock together”. South Florida has a very mixed demographic, full of “diversity”. And yet, there is “Little Haiti” there, “Little Havana” over here, and separate areas whose residents are of mostly one country of origin, even with the same language. Nicaraguans tend to become neighbors, Colombians gather in certain areas more than others, and so on. Across the United States, immigrants from Scandinavia, Germany, Italy, Irish have tended to go to their respective separate areas. It may surprise some people, but some black preachers have told about members of the congregation threatening to leave if the pastor tolerated new white members.

The point is, when private property is respected, bans on sodomy are more easily enforced. It takes a “government” or “conquering armies”, for example, to put the threat of homelessness enforced by arms, to force a family to bake a cake for a celebration of sodomy, for example.

If you don’t want to live peaceably with Amish neighbors, go find property owners who will celebrate whatever perversion you want.

HERE IS THE KICKER:

That way, if Mr. Smith refuses the love of Christ and the truth he brings, if he is excluded from fellowship by individuals following Christ, he is deciding to cast his lot with Sodomites, whether he is “good” or not. That way, GOD can take care of him, or judge him, or give him more time. Remember the Prodigal Son.

“To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.” – 1 Corinthians 5:5
“Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:”–5:7

This is not calloused. A decision should be in the mix. I do not wish judgment on evildoers or sodomites. I would rather ALL come to the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is the best thing for their physical well-being as well as their spiritual well-being. Enjoying the false pleasures of the flesh for a season cannot match the pleasure of knowing the truth and understanding the infinite love of our Creator.

But note also, that one of the biggest “sins” is self-righteousness. It was Job’s sin, and it was the sin of the Pharisees, and the repentant thief in the cross was covered by more righteousness than the Pharisees, because he pleaded the loving mercies of God. Most of the Pharisees, at least the rulers among them, were reprobate and did not repent. Nicodemus is the proof of their “willful ignorance”. Job did repent of his self-righteousness.

Job said “If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me”. The “gay” that demands that someone do an act of involuntary servitude for the glory of the enforcing “master”, may justify himself with claims of material and emotional abuse, but his own mouth condemns him, because he demands those things of his victims.

“The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.”
