“The Concept of Man”

The Atlantic wrote an article with the phrase “concept of man”.  I didn’t read the whole article.  I didn’t need to.

Proverbs 14:7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.

 

This  phrase, “concept of man”, needs to be addressed as just one more evil fruit grown from the fable of the root of evolution.

Jesus was born and came as a light into the darkness. Darkness, among other meanings, is imagery for ignorance.

Matthew 4:13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:

14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

 

The statement, “concept of man” is a concept of ignorance.

“Concept of man” could be called an AI perspective.  The globalists seem to want to merge man and machine and so they are shifting…fluidly…from biological definitions of men and women to transgenderism and from there it seems they hope to merge men and machine.

“Man” is not a mental construct.  “Man” is not a perspective.

The left is preoccupied with definitions and perspectives.   To them, the perspective is important, not reality, not facts.

This is a fact, a historical fact.

The Lord God created a physical man, and physical woman, in the earth.

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Man was created.

Man was created by a Creator.

The Creator gave mankind, through the inspiration of the prophets of old, divine direction on how to live and what to choose.  That direction has been recorded in the Holy Bible in the Old Testament, and later, the New Testament.

Man is a spirit, has a soul, and lives in a body.

Man’s thoughts are not simply a series of chemical or electrical reactions.

Man’s mind, his mental capacity, can be influenced for good or evil.

Man has a conscience.

A “concept” does not have a conscience.

Jesus, after his resurrection, appeared in a resurrected body that the disciples could touch.  Jesus ate food.  This is not a “concept” but a physical reality in the earth.

Luke 24:34 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

35 And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

43 And he took it, and did eat before them.

44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.

51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.

52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

53 And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

 

It is necessary to point out over and over that these words, these woke words, that the left flings out so freely in the media, have no basis in reality.

Why do they do it?

If the globalist, progressive, woke left can control your mind, it can control your actions, it can control your future.  It gives them power over you.  Globalist dictators can take away your freedom, and put your wealth in their pockets.

That is the end game, the end result, of these woke agendas.

Ultimately, they are satanically inspired.

No football game was ever won playing defense.  It is necessary to actively resist these woke forces in society (as well as through prayer) and point out when they are speaking ignorance in order to extend their mind control over the masses.

God and Government

Apocalypse 16. The beast shall fight aginst them. Revelation cap 11 vv 7-12. Merian. Phillip Medhurst Collection

Phillip Medhurst, CC BY-SA 3.0, via Wikimedia Commons

From the beginning, in the garden of Eden, satan, having been thrown out of heaven, sought to take over the rulership of the world.  Satan deceived Eve and Adam, they succumbed to temptation, and lost the dominion that the Lord God had given them.

Adam was created by God as to have dominion over the earth.   Dominion involves the government of God.

When the word “Adam” is used, it is not slighting Eve.  The Lord God considered them one.

Genesis 5:2  Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

They had a joint purpose under God as one.

The feminist, progressive, modernist movement would try to say that man has one purpose, and woman another, and that they are in competition.  From the beginning it was not so.

God intended marriage to be a equal yoke, an equal purpose for each family, with one overall direction where everyone is “all in” to the same purpose, not going different directions and “hooking up” occasionally.

Satan came along and deceived Adam and Eve into disobeying God and Adam lost dominion. Satan became the “god of this world”. That led to governments that are atheistic such as communism and dictatorships. These are governments that kill opposition in order to stay in power. Socialism leads to communism.

The goal has been to take back the governing of the world from satan and place it back under God. The beginning history of the United States was people who formed a nation under God.

Freedom is the freedom to serve God, to do good, not to do evil.

Freedom is the freedom to serve God, not serve iniquity.

Freedom is the freedom to serve God, not serve sin.

Freedom is the freedom to obey God, not serve the law of sin and death.

David Served God in His Generation

keys

Acts 13:36  For David, after he had in his own generation served the counsel of God, fell asleep, was laid with his fathers, and saw decay.

Judges 2:10  And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the Lord, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.

 

Generation after generation things change, “social mores” and customs change.  They are changed by progressives.  There is a saying in war, the victor rewrites history and our history books have been rewritten.

Societal change by the left, called “progressive” change, is based on the atheistic idea that man evolved from an ape.  If man evolved from an ape, then there is no God to answer to, and the thought is eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.

I Corinthians 15:32  If I fought with animals at Ephesus for human purposes, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, then “let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.”

 

Why worry about an afterlife and heaven or hell if you are a mere animal?  It is not spelled out that way, but that is the undercurrent of an atheistic society and all that stems from it:  education, history, literature, advertising, “truth” in journalism|propaganda, GMO foods, medicine, science, bribery, blackmail, etc., … down to what day of the week sports games are played.

So much of what has been happening has to be viewed through the long range view of history.

This nation was founded as a Christian nation.  Like the nation of Israel, it has backslid.  Like the nation of Israel, when a nation leaves God, it is chastening that drives the nation back to God.

This is true of a prodigal son.  It is true of a prodigal nation.

The danger of losing sight of generational understanding  is that when a generation dies off and has not properly taught the younger generation, if it has not been properly taught history, the younger generation can be hoodwinked by sly freemasons and communists who infiltrate churches and theological seminaries, producing theological interpretations contrary to the Word of God, having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof, and in some cases, there is not even a form of godliness.

I was just listening to Ken Paxton, Attorney General in Texas.  He makes a bottom line point.  If a murderer won’t obey the law to not murder, the murderer is not going to obey the law to not own a gun.

I would add that if a murderer will shoot his own grandmother in defiance of “honor thy father and thy mother”, a murderer is not going to obey any gun laws.

The Founding Fathers understood that the freedoms offered in the Word of God sometimes had to be backed up with physical enforcement.  Otherwise, you are expecting wolves in government to act as sheep.

There has been a divide in the church as to the understanding of the necessity for and right to self defense.  Self defense is a doctrine in the Catholic church.  I don’t know that it has been encapsulated that way in other denomination.

If there is never a need for enforcement against criminals, why is there a military at all?  Why is there a police department at all?  Why was WW II fought?

At some point, there has to be a proactive, offensive (used in relation to the idea of offense/defense) on-this-earth dealing with criminals and murderers and thieves.

A theme that is revisited more than once on this blog is that the secular idea that “what will be, will be” is an ungodly idea.

It is not correct theology. 

To sit back and say “whatever”, is not Christian.

Parents have the obligation to train and take care of and protect their children.  If that means going to school boards and making sure that there is armed protection in the schools, if that means making sure that there is one secured opening to the school that is locked unless the person knocking is permitted entry after being vetted, if that means using school funds for high tech equipment that can sense weaponry entering the school, whatever the best and brightest minds in self defense can lay out as a suitable course of action, then that takes the engagement of parents and school boards and whatever it takes to make that happen.  And if all the individual in school boards and government are progressives who proclaim gun control while living behind privacy walled neighborhoods and having armed guards themselves, if they are the only people you have in local government, or school board, or Department of Education, then maybe if you want protection for your children you might have to run yourself.  Or find a worthy candidate.

It’s too easy, and slothful, which is another word for lazy or complacent, to say, “whatever the Lord wants” while ignoring our own responsibilities.

Do I think that ultimately the answer is people coming to the Lord and having a change of heart and being born again?  Yes, of course, that is the ultimate answer.

But until then, are you going to let criminals run rampart saying, “what will be, will be”?
