Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the houseof their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls; from twenty years oldand upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel«. (Numbers 1:2-3)
In both instances, Congress completely ignored Yahweh¶s will. Why should they should they consult Himwhen nothing in the Constitution requires them to? SeeChapter 23, ³Amendment 14: First-Birth vs.Second-Birth Citizenship,´ for more regarding the biblical age of conscription. Numbers 14 describes anyone less than the age of twenty as children:
How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me?... Say unto them, «Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me«. But your
[everyone less than twenty years of age], which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised. But as for you, your carcases, theyshall fall in this wilderness. And your
shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness. (Numbers 14:27-33)
Isaiah 3 describes children, and women, ruling the nation as one of the curses for violating Yahweh¶slaws:
For, behold, the Lord,
of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the «mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, thecaptain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and theeloquent orator. And I will give children to be their princes, and babes [mere lads their princes andcapricious children,
] shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one byanother, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against theancient, and the base against the honourable«. As for my people, children are their oppressors,and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy theway of thy paths. (Isaiah 3:1-5, 12)
According to Numbers 14, eighteen- and nineteen-year-olds are still considered children. Along with theconstitutional right to vote comes the right to be elected to public office. Consequently, the Twenty-SixthAmendment empowered children to rule over adults, a curse upon the nation.Even without eighteen- and nineteen-year-olds being elected, their constitutional privilege to vote canitself prove to be a curse. Case in point: along with the women¶s voting bloc,
the majority of eighteen-and nineteen-year-olds who participated in the 2008 presidential election voted for Barack Obama.Even if the biblical age requirement had not been breached, elections are themselves unbiblical.Consequently, the age stipulation found in Amendment 26 is extraneous. SeeChapter 5³Article 2:Executive Usurpation´ for more regarding the unbiblical nature of elections.
