We Live In A Predatory Society

World leaders worshiping at idol of Moloch…

Society… particularly our western one derived from European and British roots, is decidedly corrupt and inefficient.  While less-developed cultures (i.e. non-industrial “pagan” ones) do not have the same technological advances, their societies seem more in tune with the needs of their members and less with the needs and wants of the ‘elite’ and/or those whom have wealth.  They are more equal and humanitarian, in many ways.

In our society, the essential services that the average person requires are often priced way above the average person’s ability to procure.  While we may look down upon those countries that seem squalid and underdeveloped, often their social structure surpasses ours in terms of the overall concern felt for their less-fortunate.  Here, it is dog-eat-dog and may the best man win.  You either pay the price or starve.

This example shows how inefficient and anti-societal our culture is… where service is measured by the amount that you are willing and/or able to pay for that service.  The same can be applied to almost every other service… medical, dental, homeopathic… any essential service that one might expect or be led to believe is necessary for good health and being.  The government pretends such great concern for it’s people and yet prices everything beyond the reach of it’s less wealthy citizens.

Then we have those that would prey on our sense of values, our rights, as it were.  Those that feel that they ought to control how society thinks and expresses itself.  They wish to determine the moral standard for everyone else, proclaiming theirs as the only true way.  We have examples of this in some of the far-right’s interpretation of religion, in the far-left’s socialistic stance.  The “moral majority”, as it is termed, determines to establish it’s particular view of the religion of Christ, imposing their own thinking and dogma on the masses covered by a cloak of self-righteousness.  The other side claims that reason – human reason – and it’s application, should be the maxim for a healthy society, and the two are often in conflict.  The latter embraces the vices of homosexuality and transgenderism, promotes atheism, communistic dogma such as feminism – ideals which tend to destroy family ideals and those things which tend to cement a culture together.

Homosexuals parading in lewd fashion down public streets

Every day, we hear of another example of corruption by  some public official, some minister caught molesting children or ‘fooling around’ outside of marriage.  All of these are predators seeking to feed off the life-blood of society.

Man is by nature a predator.  Sin has devolved the human condition, erasing it’s once divine image so that we are virtually unrecognizable from the lower beasts.  Left on our own, our race would eventually consume itself.  Fortunately, it isn’t all about us!  The Lord of Hosts desires that at least a remnant be ‘saved’ or brought back to the original state.  Unfortunately, there are many that will never accept this offer of redemption and prefer to believe that man will somehow, some way, redeem himself and learn to find peace and harmony with himself.

That, of course, is an impossibility.  Left on his own, man will continue to sink lower and lower.  There is no motivation within himself to effect any change in nature.  Our nature is to fight and grasp and serve our own needs at the expense of others’.  It is the law of tooth and claw, the same we find in the animal kingdom, which some mistakenly claim is our legacy from evolution.

All will be rectified in time.  Meanwhile, we shall have to deal with the predatory instinct of our fellow men, recognizing that this is an inevitable feature in any evolutionary scenario… one which many have adopted as a self-defeating maxim in their hopeless lives.

The End of Humanity

stephen_hawking_starchild      British physicist, Stephen Hawking, gives humanity 1000 years to get it’s act straight.  See article here.  One would think that given all the time that humans have SUPPOSEDLY been on Earth, (according to the evolutionists) that we would have learned the ways of cooperative existence and grew out of blowing the shit out of each other… sadly, that just hasn’t happened, nor is there any evidence that it ever will.

The evolutionists are all optimistic, though.  Hawking believes that humanity has only 1000 years before we destroy ourselves, which is diametrically opposed to most of the popular thinking out there.  According to the terminally optimistic, man is already well on his way to achieving not only perpetual peace but immortality… though probably through some form of symbiotic coexistence with technology.  People of faith, of course, see this as pure bunk.

We have always known what is painfully obvious… that mankind simply cannot flourish without it’s maker.  We keep bumbling along and nothing ever changes except for the worse.  This fact, the terminally optimistic refuse to recognize.

The good news is that one doesn’t have to agree with the terminally optimistic.  There is a book that has been around for longer than any of these and it states the condition of man and the cure for this affliction.  Without the cure, the condition is terminal.

So, yes… mankind, like Hawking says, cannot survive for much longer.  I do not believe that it will last near as long as Hawking says that it will, I believe that maybe a few decades or maybe even a decade is all that s needed… who knows?  It is not our prerogative to know the exact time or the day.  Know only that the time is short when you see society decaying at a rate which is very close to the way that it is portrayed, today.

People are wilful and selfish.  Every day, I see this played out on our highways, people doing the most stupid and wilful things, all in a bid to be on top, to be first.  This won’t change, it will, however, become worse with every passing day.  As man’s love for his fellow man grows colder and colder, so does the judgment draw nearer and nearer.  It is simply the way… the course that sin must run.  Many ask why God does nothing to halt this downward plunge.  Why?  Why would God halt what must be part of the healing process?  In order to heal, the disease must be allowed to run it’s course.  This is what God is doing, it is the only way to fix things and it must be done in the way that is necessary, which involves time.

God cannot save man in his sin, people would only revert back to their original state.  It is our fallen nature to do this.  The answer is to attain the character of God which He, Himself, provides through the impartation of His nature… His Spirit, no less.  How this is done is incomprehensible to the mortal mind, though the process is recognizable and only as lengthy as the will opposing this transformation makes it.  The process may take an entire lifetime, but, it is a sure one.  The unconverted nature cannot survive in a perfect universe, which is why sin must be destroyed along with all of those that manifest it.

Yes, we must leave this world in order to survive… however, it won’t be in space ships or through the benevolence of aliens.  The universe out there is ready to welcome us into it’s fellowship ONLY after the transformation of our defective character has been accomplished through the cooperation with God’s power to make it happen.
