Thy Will Be Done

jilldomschot, a commenter on insanitybytes22 ‘s post, has a point. insanitybytes22 forgets that everything is relative, including nation states and political/religious movements.

The United States now is a large country with a diverse population. That was not true at the founding. The cultural values that predominanted in 1776 were in some respects much better and some respects much worse. Of course, which cultural values were worse and which were better depend on who we ask.

What Conservatives think important is that that 1776 generation produced the Declaration and the Constitution. The values incorporated in these documents are Biblical. Whatever faults the founding generation possessed, they also possessed many virtues. They did a better job of protecting the rights of the average citizen than any people before them.

Our problem is since the 1830’s, starting in Massachusetts, we have turned more and more to government to educate us, and government-run schools have taught us to trust government and government solutions even when they are unconstitutional. Since the 1960’s government-run schools have taught us to detest anyone who opposes big government. Unfortunately, insanitybytes22 seems to have ingested some of these ideas.

Nevertheless, insanitybytes22 remains Conservative enough to support someone like Donald Trump. So, it would be stretch to point to her and say: “with friends like her who needs enemies?” It is probably more revelant wonder how any Conservatives manage to survive in the state of Washington.

So, I suggest you read insanitybytes22 ‘s post and remember, none is good (read Romans 3). We can all strive to be better, and we can forgive the flaws in others the same way we would hope to be forgiven if we shared the same flaws.

See, there's this thing called biology...

I have come to the conclusion that those who try to bring heaven to earth, tend to do the precise opposite, they tend to unleash the greatest of all hellish horrors upon the earth. That is not dependent on theology or religion either. I am also thinking of all the dystopian nightmares inflicted on us by communism and assorted other godless tyrants.

Evil is a creepy thing, most of us justify it so well, we tend to think what we are doing is actually good. Was Hitler full of doubt, insecurity, and self loathing? I think not. Was Jim Jones planning to create a dystopian nightmare of mass suicide when he set out? Was it premeditated or just the inevitable consequence of a man thinking he was qualified to bring heaven to earth?

It’s a rather gloomy subject so let me stop with the mass murderers and get right to…

  1. Tom, Insanitybytes

    After reading your posts this morning I wrote a post titled: Memorial Day 2022 Conundrum, to add my opinions to this issue which is basically a repeat of nothing new under the sun philosophy that we all need reminders to cope with when we listen or hear the news reports daily…

  2. We bring heaven on earth by spreading the Word of God, by making disciples of all nations. God does the bringing and he lets us participate in his glory.
