God’s Biological Society – The Family
The first component, and an obstacle to the secularist goal, is the authority of the genetic family. There is no continuation of the species of man without procreation. As such, it is the physical center of humanity and has been such since man climbed out of the mud of the bog. With such an understanding, all cultures in the past have naturally delegated authority to the family; first to the father and mother, second to the community, third to the state, and so on. It had always been a fundamental practice that generated opportunity and stability for all, and despite its frequent inequities due to the abuse of authority by self-centered individuals and groups – a condition that exits in all authorities across all philosophies – it is a proven model. It works because that is God’s creative plan and it is His genetic formula for created man.
Secular man sees another model; one not based upon genetics, but rather upon desires. The first is stable and evolves at a pace that society bears easily and without notice. The second is continually disruptive by nature for it gives preference to immediate and temporal desires, and redistributes resources, which had been acquired through the stability of the family structure, to those who have not had to work for those resources. The secularist, in pursuit of providing resources for the impulse of feelings and desires, has to separate work from reward. Individuals and groups that had spent their lives working for what they thought was theirs, are left to watch those things of value taken away from them and given to another individual or group so that a new desire may flourish. Institutions that struggled for generations in order to reach the higher echelons of quality provisions for specific purposes have found their successful programs sacked and redefined by those who merely desired what that institution earned and offered, and saw no reason why they should have to meet the very requirements that made the institution desirable to them to begin with. The secularist creed is, “Take what you choose not to earn or accomplish”. Continue reading The Rights of Evil – Part 7.
