Some Sad News and a Prayer Request for Mama Liberty

I have some sad news: Mama Liberty, a friend here in the Redoubt, has posted word in The Price of Liberty blog that she is dying of an aggressive cancer, and that she will no longer be blogging. Please, please pray for complete healing for her. And if it is not God’s will that she be healed, pray that she should be granted comfort, strength, and peace in her final months on this mortal coil.

Mama Liberty has fought the good fight for individual liberty for many years. Her wise writings have had a galvanizing effect on American Patriots. Many of her blog posts (since 2003) are some of the best and most succinct libertarian essays that I’ve ever read. Like the words of all great writers, her writings will long out-live her.

I have deep respect for Mama Liberty, her writings, and how she firmly stood her ground. She is genuinely deserving of our prayers. Please read this Psalm and fervently and regularly pray for her:

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.  – Psalm 107:15-22 (KJV)

Please delve into the archives of her posts. Here is just one pithy example: The Free Cheese.

My Thanks To You, – JWR


  1. Thanks for the update on Mama Liberty. I sent her an email of encouragement and I will be praying for her by name. I also told her if she had need of more concrete help, to ask, and I’ll do my part to help her. G*d be with her, and all of you.

  2. Why would it not be Gods will for her to be healed when Christ secured our healing at the cross? (Isaiah 53:5)

    Saying that it is God’s will to save everyone who comes to him for salvation but does not heal everyone who comes to him for healing is saying that God has a dual nature.

    Scripture says that God is no respecter of persons (Eph. 6:9, Col. 3:25, Rom 2:11) So if one believes it is God’s will to heal one person but not the other then how does one reconcile that belief to the scriptures? What special favor did the one who got healed have with God?

    Paul’s “thorn” in the flesh: Paul plainly says what the “thorn” in the flesh was. “the messenger of Satan to buffet me”. If God gave him the “thorn”, then where did God get a messenger of Satan to give to Paul? Paul also describes his various buffetings in 2 Cor.11:23-27. Shipwrecks, beatings, jailings, more beatings, perils of various kinds. Sounds like being buffeted to me. If one persists in the belief that God made Paul sick, then answer me this. Where did God get this sickness? There isn’t any sickness in heaven. Did God get some from the Devil to give to Paul?

    Job: The reason that God “allowed” the Devil to attack Job was that Job got over into doubt and unbelief. In Job 3:25 it says that what Job “greatly feared” had come apon him. In Job 1:5 Job doubted that his sons and daughters were continuing in the ways of God so he tried to control the situation by offering sacrifices, etcetra. Instead of surrendering control of the situation of his children to God he tried to control it, thereby shutting God out.

    In Isaiah 53:5 it says that “with his stripes we are healed”. This verse is repeated in 1 Peter 2:24. Christ’s death and resurrection redeemed us from sin, the beatings and whippings he endured before his death coupled with his death and resurrection redeemed us from sickness and disease.

    Galatians 3:13 says that “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law”. In Deut. 28:58-61 God says that sickness and disease is part of the curse of the law.

    The most common reason that people don’t receive healing is because of their own doubt and unbelief. See James 1:6-8. See also Matt 17:20-21 and Mark 22:22-26. Remember that Jesus himself could not do many mighty works in his own hometown because of their unbelief (Matt 13:58). You can not believe God for something and down deep say that IF God doesn’t do whatever, then you will do something. The word IF signifies that you don’t really believe God’s word when it says “with his stripes we are healed”. That doubt cancels out the power of God. In Psalm 103:3 it says “who healeth ALL thy diseases”. Psalms 103 lists all of the benefits of God. These are things that God does for us when we do not doubt him.

    In the story of the woman with the issue of blood in Mark 5:25-34, what did Jesus say to the woman? In verse 34 Jesus says “thy faith has made thee whole”. He said the same thing to the blind man in Mark 10:52.

    In his ministry, Jesus healed everyone who came to him, and he even corrected one man’s theology who sounded like most modern Christians. In Mark 1:40-41 a leper says to Jesus, “IF thou wilt”. What does Jesus say? “I will, be thou clean”. If it was his will to heal the leper then why isn’t it his will to heal today? Is not God the same, yesterday, today, and forever? Or did he change? If he changed, then no one has any foundation to stand on faith for anything, including salvation.

    One of the major bits of levening in modern Christianity is the notion that “sometimes God says no.” This notion is a way to transfer our failings, through doubt and unbelief, to God and it flies in the face of what 2 Cor. 1:19-20 says.

    Modern Christianity desperately needs a good dose of the same power of God as displayed by the apostles in the Book of Acts. The same unchanging God with the same unchanging Spirit. People changed.

  3. My dad suffered for a very long and horrible year with cancer.
    His ‘final faith’ battle was believe God for his healing when God had other plans for him.

    There is a ‘sickness unto death.’ It is appointed unto man ONCE to die. We are not smart enough to second guess how God chooses to rule in our lives, but we have the assurance, that the ‘the steps of a good man’ are ordered of the LORD.

    HIS ways are NOT our ways.
