We all have been subjected to examples of evil. Just look at your daily dose of news, from the international scene to the local deviants that are paraded before our eyes on a daily basis. Where are the morals that at one time prevailed worldwide?
People do not open their eyes or use their minds; rather, people have once again done what is natural–and that is to conform to the lowest common denominator. And then we have the news clips of victims saying: “How could God allow this to happen?”
Let’s take a look at part of a letter that was sent to King George III in 1776. This phrase is something we should all know; yet most in America have no idea where it is from or the significance of the words.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…” This is from the Declaration of Independence, that letter to King George III that officially started the war for independence. One part of this is the word “Creator.” Our creator put us on this earth to determine our own destiny, to succeed or fail of our own volition. To help us and to create a fair playing field, our Creator gave us a set of rules. We know these as the 10 Commandments.
Those people who are evil see evil used by them as good– “the end justifies the means.” Those who see evil as evil and a detriment to the overall good of society reject any lawbreaking and try to remove those evildoers from the playing field. Some seek to reform over a minor infraction, or they want to throw away the key for major damages of societal evolution.
To answer the question “How could God let this happen?”, we could go to Einstein’s rebuke of a professor using temperature. Cold does not exist; it is a lack of heat. We do not measure how cold something is; we measure how hot something is. It is not that God allowed it to happen; God has been uninvited from our schools, trains, and public places. The basic laws of society have been banned. God has not allowed anything to happen. We as a world have ignored our Creator’s guidelines and are playing God. Looks like we are not very good at playing God, are we?
So what are the political implications of this world of excrement? Recently, CNN reporter Chris Cuomo stated that “our rights do not come from God.” That is the end game. Ultimately, he is saying that our rights do not exist unless some organization with lots of guns will give us rights–maybe. What the organization disapproves of will be outlawed, and what they sanction will be mandatory. Anyone who disagrees with the organization will be declared an enemy of the state and will be hunted down like a dog–and silenced in the most cost-effective way possible.
For a long time, the institutions of “higher” learning have taught that our constitution is nothing except a series of guidelines that really don’t need to be followed. Now, we are seeing the true nature of evil in action. If you have not seen “The Hunger Games”, take a look at the people in the districts and the people in the capital and make a comparison. We are living in “The Hunger Games” now. Who will volunteer to be a tribute?
