ORDER or CHAOS and the Purpose of Religion

There are two fundamental governing factors in our universe; even more fundamental than good or evil–as it defines good and evil.

These fundamental factors can be referred to as ORDER and CHAOS.

Order is anything in the world that has stability, that does not destroy itself.

Chaos is a state that cannot exist and so is destroyed until it reaches a state of order.

If something is in a state of chaos it is constantly changing–in essence it is searching for order and will find it, unless the chaos is purposefully perpetuated by and intelligent force (for the natural state of all things is order).

Natural Order is something that is somewhat strait-forward to grasp. It can be studied (observed) directly using scientific methods. Moral Order, however, has proven trickier to grasp, as it is seen by many to be more subjective.

This is where religions come in.

Part of the purpose of religion is to provide a moral framework from which we can base our decisions. Now, this has been used by the enemy in the creation of false religions that provide a moral framework that is NOT in line with Moral ORDER. (Just like Natural Order, Moral Order exists whether we attempt to adhere to/believe in it or not–just as not believing in gravity won’t cause you to fly.) This puts people in a state of Chaos, not or Order and Peace. False religions or extreme/perverted manifestations of true religions will always be characterized by chaos (that is, disharmony, contention/hatred, violence, etc.)  because the moral/spiritual chaos that they live in will reflect in their physical lives.

Consider this in your quest for true knowledge and wisdom…

You can know the TRUE (order) from the FALSE (chaos)–even through their clever deception–by this method:

As Yeshua (Jesus) put it:

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” (Mathew 7:15-20)

THE SECRET is a LIE

You know that book/movie “The Secret” that has been taking the world by storm…? Of course you do. They left out one extremely vital truth:

1) Aggregate Consciousness – The effect and power of a collective societies consciousness

There are only 2 basic impulses: LOVE and FEAR. In western society the aggregate consciousness leans heavily on the side of fear. Think news, wars, economy… Politics (Republicans are SCARED the Democrats will win and visa versa)… even Sales Advertising (You’re SCARED you’ll miss the deal)

This presentation is a much watch for the above information, and the progression that each one of these impulses inevitably follows. The falls under the study of Natural Law. (This is not me by the way)

The Dichotomy of the Brain and the Importance of Balance

Here’s a short post that foreshadows a much longer exposition on the topic.

Your mind has two side or hemispheres. Each side roughly corresponds to a different kind of thinking:

Left side – Analytical, logical, scientific thinking

Right side – Creative, emotional, moral thinking

The trick is to think with both sides in balance. When one side dominates your thinking process it leads to a certain kind of subtle madness that makes it easy for you to be manipulated by people who better understand the way the mind works.

Here’s a fascinating video that explains this much better than I have:

I challenge you to be thankful for…

Things you never really take the time to consider.

The ability to read and reason. Sight. Color. The ability to remember… To be unique. The forces that hold the universe together. The day and the night. The ability to communicate and create.

It is interesting that all that is physical, originated from the unseen. Thoughts. Forces. Feelings. Dreams. Energy. And of course…

Remember who to be thankful to…

All glory be to God!!

Happy Thanksgiving and God bless everyone!

Weakness, Strength, and Wisdom… The Elements of Government.

It’s late, I’m tired, but I’ve been struck by the bolt of inspiration. Forgive the messiness but I just need to get this thought out.

I heard a quote (in a Nas song): “The strong rule the weak, but the wise rule the strong.”

I thought about it… it is true on a profound level. But there is a piece missing… As with almost everythign in existence, the system is cyclical. While this proverb (in the non-Biblical sense) makes sense on a logical, easily understandable level. The missing piece however is not drawn from temporal wisdom, but rather spiritual wisdom.

We learn in the Bible the favor that the weak, meek, poor in spirit, etc. have in God’s eyes and heart. They shallinherit the Kingdom of Heaven, it is said. For you see, in God’s ideal world system, the weak rule the wise. In that the wise take council from the weak, in turn commanding the strong, who take care of the weak. This is in essence the idea of democracy, in which the (weak) masses, rule the (wise) politicians, who command the (strong) army, money, etc.

This is why democracy fits so well with a Christian-born governmental system.

True wisdom is found in submission.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10)

Fear begets submission.

If the wise do not submit to the will of the weak and rule the strong by their own will, then they have traded their wisdom for arrogance, and their wisdom is turned to veiled strength. So you see, the world leaders of this day are not wise, for they lack the humble wisdom of submission. They rule with intellectual STRENGTH. Not wisdom…

The question is… are they fools, sinners, or have they (or someTHING else) purposefully broken God’s system?
