- The act of remonstrating.
- An expression of protest, complaint, or reproof, especially a formal statement of grievances.
Remonstrance, Inc. is not a corporation. It would be a silly corporate name. Rather, it describes the bulk of my life’s work, beginning around 1979 or 1980, when I finally figured out nobody wins in The System, as the Bible calls it, or “The Monster”, as Steppenwolf once called it. Whatever the name, it’s a cold place where real people are cast away like industrial waste. I’ve always been a remonstrant at heart towards The System. I rebelled in many different ways until I discovered the only recourse is the redemption Jesus Christ brought to the people. “God so loved the world, He gave His only son…” (Jn. 3:16).
“Why remonstrate?” some might ask. To them I would cite the woodcut above which depicts the many “kings who will arise from the earth,” as Daniel prophesied, who were little beasts. Most would agree we’ve seen far too many beasts driving The System.
Those with a penchant for history will recognize the allusion to the famous “Remonstrance” declaration which fueled the Radical Reformation, much like the remonstrances against King Edward’s oppression. Remonstrance is redemptive in the hands of those who love freedom, which was the movement Jesus truly started. Despite the best efforts of despots, emperors and dictators to hijack His freedom movement, it stays alive and well, as Communist China can testify today. It is my life’s ambition to fuel His freedom movement among those still shackled by the The System and its grand Institutes of Religion.
With this in mind, Remonstrance, Inc. strives to achieve two complimentary goals:
- To monitor, document, and publicize how The System reduces people to industrial waste, especially through its deceptive promises.
- To educate people on the alternative, trustworthy promises available through Jesus Christ, and the redemption He brings to industrial waste.
