Everything based on truth will exhibit oneness with God and with God’s principles.
God is not afraid of science. God created science.
Man may try to misuse or misinterpret science, (or history for that matter), for purposes that serve greed, globalism, or atheism, but true science is one with the principles of God.
Hear O Israel, the Lord Our God is One Lord.
The Word of God will endure.
Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Luke 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
Science, history, culture, civilization, if founded upon the Word of God, will also last and increase in peace.
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Western civilization was heavily influenced by the Word of God, until the recent winds of modernism, skepticism, wokeness, and atheism began to blow.
Let’s take some of the major ideas of wokeness and compare them to the Bible.
Ideas that are workable are ideas that are based on the principle that The Lord is One, that God and His Word are One. In other words, anything connected to God and rooted in God’s Word, will be successful, because God, the sustaining Lord of the universe, has successfully maintained His creation until this day.
Likewise, we don’t need to be afraid of science because true science and mathematical principles were created by God. Illogical science, not rooted in actual facts, does not stand the test of true scientific scrutiny. A “Dr. Fauci – I am science” version of science has not been able to maintain its façade for even two years.
I Timothy 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.
True science, based on true principles, endures. Gravity was around 5000 years ago. It is still an active principle. Other known scientific principles can lift an airplane above the effects of gravity, but gravity still exists. Real scientific principles are consistent and endure because God created true science.
Let’s cover some major ideas of modern civilization.
The question to be asked is…are these woke ideas leading civilization to some kind of a golden age, a better age? Are they leading to the increase and sustainability of civilization or are they leading to its destruction?
Lets consider some of the things that have come into vogue with wokeness and ask if these ideas are sustainable. Sustainability is a modern term that is thrown around a lot. Let’s examine it.
Before we start this examination, there are a ground rule.
This is equal time and equal opportunity for both sides, with no cheating.
Neither sides gets to “cheat” with special favors. Not the press. Not money. Not executive orders. This is a level playing field.
Can civilization survive with some of the modern ideas?
One side does not get to “cheat” with special favors like Executive Orders, labs, trillions of dollars, one- sided mainstream media always in its favor, or any other “cheat sheets”.
The question is…will the principles work on a day-to-day, week-after-week, month-after-month, year-after-year basis without a central planner cheating with extra perks in one side’s favor?
So the big rule is…no cheating.
God and the Bible
With the rules of the game established, let’s look at a few major topics.
Creationism vs Evolution
We have been told that man evolved from a beast.
According to the Bible, God created man and gave him instruction through the Bible on how to live. The men who wrote the Bible were inspired by God. These were prophets and Kings and shepherds or men who in one way or another spent a lot of time with God. David worshipped the Lord as he kept sheep. Moses was a shepherd when he was called by God. Paul the Apostle, after his dramatic conversion, spent three years in Arabia learning from the Lord Jesus Christ. Amos was a shepherd. John the Baptist lived in the wilderness until he began to baptize. Jesus, while he spent time with the crowds, also spent a lot of time by Himself in communion with His Father.
II Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
A trend of today is continual noise in one form or another. Noise can drown out the voice of God.
In any case, God created man as described in Genesis. If you have not read the Bible, then along with the New Testament, at least read through Genesis of the Old Testament. It covers the great themes that are repeated in the Bible. While the Bible contains 66 books, the overall author is God who inspired the various authors of the various books. Catholics also include books called the Apocrypha, of which Martin Luther, who is most often linked to the Protestant Reformation said this, “These books are not held equal to the Scriptures, but are useful and good to read.”
Back to the question of creationism…if you study archeology, you will find that there have been discoveries of inventions that don’t correspond with the idea of man crawling up out of the slime to become first a beast, later a man. You can’t correlate some of those high tech inventions found in archeology without looking at history in a Biblical light.
The problem with the reporting of the sciences, and really most news at this point, is that when facts are found that contradict the desired narrative, the facts are either misrepresented or not reported at all.
It’s the old question…if a tree falls in the forest and there’s no one around to hear it, does it make any noise? Well, yes, the birds and animals probably heard it fall. But if the mainstream media didn’t report on Humpty Dumpty’s fall, then probably no one knew about it.
In a Biblical world view, man was created by God with a high level of ability and fell, or devolved, meaning went downhill, after the Fall in the Garden of Eden. Mankind went lower after the Fall. Man did not climb up from the slime.
If you know even a little bit about science, you can understand how evolution is impossible. I am certainly no scientist, but here are a few thoughts.
Remember, not only do these problems have to be solved, but every related problem to every bodily system, every change, would have to occur at the same time. Any necessary changes in the bones, muscles, nerves, glands, anything related to any kind of change in the body, would have to occur at the same time. One change could not occur without multiple other changes occurring simultaneously.
And not only do they have to occur in one organism, they would also have to occur simultaneously in a second organism of the opposite sex at the same time. And these two simultaneously, “equally” evolving organisms, would have to have each simultaneously the exact same changes and find each other perhaps amidst millions of other similar organisms to create offspring with similar changes.
Plus, if you are not born with certain genes in one generation, genes are not created out of thin air.
It is important to differentiate between evolution and diversification. These are two entirely different ideas.
When you talk about one species diversifying to have a different color, feather or fur, for example, to match snow (polar bear) or match a tree trunk (brown bear), that is an entirely different discussion than, for example, a fish becoming a reptile becoming a man.
Let’s follow out the story line with a couple of examples just to make it plain. This is so simple that it is ridiculous that the left has projected this story line for so many generations, decades, almost centuries? It’s time for the madness to end.
Here are a couple of small things. How do you go from a two to a three chamber heart to the four chamber heart of man? Remember all the conditions above. The placement of nerves, maybe increased body size to hold the heart, which would imply a change in muscle structure, probably a change in bone placement, lung capacity, and the relationship of the heart to the lungs…so much would have to “leap forward” at the same time that it would be impossible.
If there is any fairy tale of science, it is the idea of evolution.
Why do atheists, modernists, secularists, and globalists like the idea of evolution?
Well, if there is a Creator that created each soul, each soul that inhabits a body, then each of us have a Creator we must answer to as to how we live our lives. God created us and has first claim upon us.
One scientist said something to this effect, “I believe that Jesus is who he says he is, I just don’t like what he teaches.”
Jesus and the Word of God stand in the way of greed, crime, pedophilia, adultery, white collar crime, FBI perjury, election theft, printing trillions of dollars which is a form of theft by inflation, toxic jabs for profit, the NWO, GMO, the Great Reset and everything that is contrary to the principles of God’s Word.
It’s really that simple and that is the simple reason why the globalists and atheists try to remove the remembrance of God and the Bible…Jesus stands in the way of their purposes.
So history is rewritten, science is rewritten, dates and times are rewritten, customs are revised, in an attempt to create an atheistic world where the remembrance of God is forgotten.
Let’s go back to the idea of evolution; here’s another problem. It’s a problem with energy.
Energy flows to lower states. It takes energy to go to a higher state. Just go away on vacation. Is your house cleaner or dirtier on your return? There is dust, maybe a spider web in your absence. Things go downhill, not uphill. Just look at your house every day. Is it evolving to a cleaner state without an input of someone’s energy? Can a higher level of creation be created without some energy coming from somewhere? Where does it come from? Can you throw a bunch of engine parts on the ground and command them to assemble into a working engine without an input of energy and knowledge?
The premise is…God is One…and looking at archeology in light of a Fall from a higher state to a lower state makes more sense and is consistent with the Biblical record, rather than man moving up from the slime, and slowly making progress one tiny step at a time.
There are too many problems both with science and history for the false philosophy of evolution.
Another way to look at the question of Creation vs Evolution is this.
A civilization that permits the destruction of millions of dollars of assets in a summer, or a civilization that destroys its young and its populations, cannot endure. Even if you want to hold onto the (incorrect) idea of evolution, the idea of evolution also contains the idea of mutations. If a civilization mutates to become something that destroys people and property, that civilization cannot endure. If civilization is evolving (which it is not, it is devolving due to sin and iniquity), then this civilization is failing, not evolving. Are things getting worse? Do you need the news to tell you if they are getting worse or can you figure it out on your own?
Remember, the Biblical idea of success is this.
Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end,
We are not experiencing increase and peace with the current woke generation.
Remember, we are looking at which principles can endure long term…those which are based on the Bible or those which are not.
Creationism, based on the Bible, wins.
Marriage and Family vs Transgenderism and Homosexuality
Consider transgenderism and homosexuality.
Remember the rules. No cheating.
Take away the ability to adopt children.
Take away the ability to use test tube babies.
Will transgenderism and homosexuality permit the continuance of civilization?
The answer is “no” because, in spite of modern opinion, men cannot have babies. LOL
We are talking here “no cheating”. We have to play on equal grounds, equal terms, one side doesn’t get test tubes, or the force of the state to create an unequal playing field.
And if you say, well, test tubes will always be available to us…don’t make assumptions and no cheating. You don’t get special privileges to try to do what you think you can do. What if there is a war or a bomb that destroys your lab? And what if yours is the last lab on earth and you have killed off all the women or made it impossible for them to have babies because you jabbed them with a toxic jab, then what?
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, ….
It is clear, that without cheating, the only sustainable answer for civilization is God’s way, man and woman, having children. The family is God’s central unit. When God created, God created family.
Regarding the fears of overpopulation…God took Enoch without death. Jesus ascended. God can figure it out. We haven’t hit the problem yet. As a matter of fact, economists are looking at declining populations and saying there is a problem.
We don’t need to fear overpopulation at this point. As a matter of fact, we are in danger of being destroyed.
The Biblical way, the Biblical definition of family, wins.
Civilization Based Upon the Rule of Law and God’s Justice vs Defund the Police and Wokeness
The BLM riots destroyed millions of dollars of property. This was property that had been developed over time. It was destroyed in a summer. Is this a sustainable principle for a civilization?
The alternative to BLM and lawlessness is the Golden Rule of Jesus. We are not talking the perverted golden rule of today…the left perverts everything. The perverted version is he who owns the gold, rules. Well, in that case, God still rules, as God’s city streets are made of gold.
But the real Golden Rule is Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
You probably don’t want someone burning down your house or business, so you should not burn down someone else’s home or business.
Let’s go onto the idea of defund the police. Actually, in some states, it has gone beyond defunding the police. Criminals are let out to steal or kill again. You’ve probably seen those videos where in some cities thieves go into stores and as long as they don’t steal more than a certain amount at a time, the city permits it. Nothing happens. Is this sustainable? The Bible says, thou shalt not steal.
Defunding the police, permitting crime… This is unsustainable. The Bible is for property rights. The Bible is for the preservation of life. Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not steal.
What about capital punishment? Actually, that is in the Bible. It is the way to stop evil.
When Jesus said to turn the other check, he was talking about working things out on a neighbor level. A neighbor-to-neighbor interaction should not use law reserved for established lawful government to solve a neighborly problem. In that case turn the other cheek, go the second mile. In other words, when a neighbor almost killed Rand Paul when gardening, it could have been worked out in a kinder way.
Look at it this way. We turn the higher judicial matters over the military because we recognize that there are some times when actual evil needs to be eradicated. I’m not talking about Ukraine when I say that as Ukraine is a proxy war for corrupt politicians, which if you don’t realize that yet, some day you will.
Let’s go back to something everyone generally agrees is evil: WW II and Hitler killing Jews in concentration camps. If someone said, during WWII, to General Patton,Why don’t you turn the other cheek to Rommel?…that person would probably would have gotten an earful of verbiage that he would rather not hear. But it is equally crazy to let murderers out on the street in your own nation. Somehow, we glorify supposed justice in wars overseas, but forbid it in our own nation. Capital punishment is necessary to survival.
Years ago, and I’m fairly sure that they wouldn’t even show this on modern TV, there was a “caning” of an American that had spraypainted a car. It was severe. I can pretty well guarantee that he never spraypainted a car again.
There is something about definitive punishment that stops criminals. A nation that refuses definitive punishment ensures that crimes will continue.
Dr. D. James Kennedy, who was extremely well educated with a number of lettered degrees following his name, used to say this.
Tolerance is the last virtue of a depraved society. When you have an immoral society that has blatantly, proudly, violated all of the commandments of God, there is one last virtue they insist upon: tolerance for their immorality.
Just common sense tells you that if you let a criminal out for a crime, that unless that criminal has been reformed, he will probably go back and repeat the crime.
It is called repeat offenders.
It’s called…what you see on the screen in Los Angeles and San Francisco and other woke cities.
It’s called…the repeat offense of the theft of the 2020 and 2022 elections.
You need law and order for society to work long term.
The Bible gives instructions for life, for individuals, for families, for nations, for law and order.
Classical Biblical Education Based on Sound Principles from the Past vs Woke Education
Education…education should be the passing on the knowledge that has been obtained from prior generations and that actually works.
This is in many fields. It involves Biblical education.
It also involves practical education in every realms of life: law, government, history, science, mechanics, agriculture, health, music, art…every area of life.
A lot of the woke ideas that do not work and which are discussed above are being included in modern education. These are not sound ideas based on sound principles. They do not work.
Look at the streets filled with wokeness. Does a woke education lead to a peaceful and prosperous society?
Woke studies, transgenderism studies, CRT studies will not help students learn how to build a building or plant a field to grow food. A “Dr. Fauci -I am science” type of approach, where a man’s opinions are trusted, rather than the facts and evidence of peer-reviewed ethical doctors, started the ball rolling to where we are today. He lied to those who trusted him, and those words were picked up by politicians, media, even the United Nations.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on. Winston Churchill
Some attribute the above to Mark Twain. Either way, we get the point.
Even if false information is finally retracted, the retraction generally does not get nearly the buzz and media coverage that the lie had. The retraction might be a whisper or hid in a late Friday afternoon release when people are getting off of work for the weekend and are not really focused on the news.
The Bible discusses education.
Deuteronomy 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Deuteronomy 11:18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:
21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;
Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
I Timothy 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Work vs Woke
God’s values say work. Woke values are based on welfare.
Exodus 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
II Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
The alternative to work, and God created work, is welfare.
The problem with a population living on welfare (or socialism) is this, as Margaret Thatcher said,
The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money.
From a governmental point of view, the central planners understand this.
Finally, to deal with the problem of not enough money to pay for all the goodies that politicians promised for free so that they could get votes, central planners have to start reducing the population, which is what is happening.
Well, someone might say, why not print money? That is what happened recently. Trillions of dollars were created. So, prices went up to match the excess number of dollars. It is a simplistic explanation, but that is basically what happened. Inflation was the result of creating money out of thin air.
God says in the Bible, no usury, and today’s monetary policy depends on usury, interest, and debt.
Here’s a fun video about work vs woke.
God vs Central Planners of Government
At the end of all the specifics above, we come to the big and final choice.
It is God vs wokeness.
It is God vs central planners.
The central planners of government circulate woke ideas. They use the power of propaganda, the power of money, the power of government, and the power of bought off officials to push their ideas on society.
But remember, in this test, we have a basic rule, and that rule is…no cheating.
So if there had not been the power of governmental threats and propaganda, how far would the latest central planning idea, that of an untested jab, for a virus concocted in a lab, how far would that idea have gone without the cheating on the side of government?
The government used the threat of job loss; used the power of the purse; the power of media; and the power of unverified, untested science; the power of banning and canceling voices; and the power of psychological manipulation, to push through its own agenda.
An untested jab has resulted in deaths, mutilation, infertility, and miscarriages. The Hippocratic Oath, as created by the Greeks (before it was modernized) had a higher level of ethics than we do in modern time. Take out the ode to Greek gods and see if the Greek ethics in the remaining Hippocratic Oath (as originally written, not tampered with) aren’t higher than those of today.
Finally, when all else fails, when the failing principles of central planners who plan apart from the Bible and wisdom of God, plan a failing civilization, their conclusion is to solve the problem by depleting the population…with fewer people they will have fewer problems to solve…and by printing trillions so they can line their pockets and buy the real wealth that the dead and dying plebians leave behind. This is the Great Reset of Klaus Schwaub and others.
If you have followed this post from top to bottom, you should be able to see that a civilization based on God’s law, on following the Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ, on following the Lord God of creation, makes more sense than the gods of wokeness.
Remember the rule…no cheating.
In our everyday society, there is a huge amount of cheating that occurs trying to push wokeness.
Strip away the cheating and wokeness loses.
Psalm 90:1 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
13 Return, O Lord, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.
14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.
16 Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.
17 And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
