Judgement: The Queen

This is only an experiment to see if judgement can be discerned in the life of well-known people. Perhaps it might remind us of things in our own lives. If I thought she was reading this, I would need to reconsider. However, nothing I am describing is not already out here in the public domain.

The Queen is a good, first subject, I think, because she is the Head of the Church of England and the Anglican Church and swears to defend the faith. And she is placed as an authority under God.

What do I mean by 'judgement'? I mean the consequencies of decision-making in general, including rebelling either against God's Law or against the natural laws of God's creation.

The traditional family unit: man, wife and children. In some societies men have had more than one wife. Nevertheless, the man protects and provides for the family, the wife looks after and protects the children. Christians and others traditionally look at this as a God-fearing hierarchy, where the man is the head of the family beholden to God and the children honour their father and mother (the 5th Commandment).

 When the Duke of Edinburgh married the, to be, Queen, he could not fulfill that traditional role, as he was not a provider although he may have protected her.

The Queen and the Duke would frequently leave for long spells to go on long trips around the Commonwealth. When their children were still toddlers, they would leave them for up to five months with nannies.

So, I make a connection between that, and the difficulties all her children have found subsequently in forming relationships. They had four children. Three of them have been divorced. I know Charles' father encouraged him to sow his wild oats when he was younger.

It is difficult to know what part, if any, adultery played in two of those. In Charles' case, he broke the 7th Commandment while he was married to Diana, Princess of Wales. The divorce completely changed her character and of course her death had profound consequencies for her sons, one of whom is married to Meghan Markel, Duchess of Sussex. A couple either facing or creating their own problems as we speak.

Deuteronomy 5:9 - Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me.

Her sister, Margaret also divorced. The pattern of parental abandonment was visited on them too. Elizabeth was under 12 months old when her parents left her for months for a tour of Australia. She "looked tearful" as her parents departed. We now know what a traumatic effect such an abandonment can have on both the baby and the mother. The reason for it, self-sacrifice and duty to others, a phrase long used during the up-bringing of children in England, is something less and heard today.

At the same time, there is something very poignant about Elizabeth, a young lady of 21, who broadcast to the Empire and Commonwealth of Nations:

 "I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service".

And there's no question she's tried to do that and has been a significant force for good and the unity of both the United Kingdom and the community of English-speaking nations.

Ezekiel 18:19-20 - Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, [and] hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live

So, where is duty in our lives today? And is the price she and her family pay warrented?
