Please note that this discussion installment is published as a sort of draft without the necessary editorial work being done. This is because this author have not been able to do so since 2012 C.E. and this discussion thread has been left in limbo for too long. So rather than waiting for an indefinite length of time further, the author have decided to publish the full discussion thread warts and all. Apologies to all those who are sensitive to errors in grammar, typing errors, misspelled words, improperly constructed sentences, etc.
How The Current World Order Came About. [CurOrd]
One of the main weaknesses in mankind is contributed by the fact that we are all so recent (even just from the context of life on earth when it first began to take hold). Or even just comparing our individual personal existence (regardless whether one year old or a hundred and twenty) with that of the human race aka species we are (in contextual analogies) just babies still in fetal development stages in the womb from this chronological perspective.
Of the over seven billion human being alive today (as of 2016 C.E.), the majority were not even born yet: when Adolf Hitler carried out his vehement hatred against the Jews with the complicit support of many of the citizenry in the nations of Europe in his genocidal campaign against the Jewish people (those professing the pagan religion of Judaism); when horrendous atrocities were committed by Joseph Stalin through his supporters and the army on his own nation against all that did not fall in line as also against those in the nations Communist Russia ruled over; when Mao Zedong ‘murdered’ millions of the members of his own countrymen through his “great vision and wisdom”; and when Pol Pot committed genocide against his own countrymen wiping out nearly a quarter of the population of that country. These are just a few of the recent cases of the horrendous evil atrocities that those who wield power over the human social order commit against their fellow mankind.
To this very day such atrocities are still being committed by those who wield power and authority that are mostly unchecked by their peers in the confines of the social order they preside over.
And up to until this very day in a super enlightened human social order we continued to see in almost every nation of the world, the rulers and leaders of nations still seeking to silence and destroy all those who would not be subservient to them, whenever they are able to do so with some measure of impunity.
Throughout this very short recorded history of the human race, horrific abuses, torture and murder have always been committed by those who wielded great authority and power over their neighbors near and far off.
But these great horrific evils were not just committed by the dictators and tyrants who ruled over nations and societies. Everyday at ever level of the social order of mankind from since the Garden of Eden (for those who believe the Christian Holy Scriptures), or (according to those who are atheists or of other religious beliefs) from since cognitively advance self aware mankind came on the scene on this blessed planet, the greater majority of those who hold power (whether physical or psychological) even if this is just the power over a single human being, they have used their authority and power to exploit and abuse their weaker neighbors (all those living within their reach) whenever these abusers/exploiters could get away with it, without or with little negative immediate consequences to themselves.
Nearly every single member of mankind including almost all of you who are reading this post right now, are complicit to this evil. Many of you, if not nearly all of you who are reading the blogs of this author for the first time would most probably be seething in indignation, anger or great vehemence raging hatred against me because I said that. Most would definitely not be wishing or contemplating anything good for this author but something rather nasty. Some might even be considering and thinking of ways and means to do some harm even as all sort of abuses directed at me might be seething in yours hearts (minds) on reading this.
And that would not be surprising and would also definitely prove the point that what I have spoken is totally true. And to all of you reading this and who believe yourself to be a noble and sincere person seeking for truth, I will totally prove what I have written. As for those of you who are neither seeking for truth nor are sincere but are blatant liars, you should not be even reading any of this in the first place as I have made it abundantly clear in my Content Warning Tab as well on the Warning And Disclaimer on the right hand column of all my Christian blogs.
For every single person who thinks of themselves as good people or even just as not evil people, I have news for you. Many, if not most, of you are not just, not good, but also fully evil.
Maybe you may not be as evil as those serial murderers, rapists and other violent criminals or as evil as the great mass murders, dictators and tyrants of history or even of today (yes there are still numerous such mass murderers actively doing so today, just as there still are numerous serial murderers and rapists actively pursuing their obsessive lust), that have caused the death of millions, but you are evil nonetheless.
And for most of you the reason that you are not one of these is not because you are good or not evil but because situations and circumstances of your life have not allowed or have not led you to become one of these, meaning you don't have or haven't been able to command such power nor have such opportunity; there have been mitigating circumstances and situations (of our life pathways and effective social order) that had not allowed you or had not made it expedient for you. And that too is true with this author, as it is true of every single human being who had ever (and will ever) lived and even the Spirit Angels. Situations and circumstances in our lives had not led us down those path.
The evil that had plagued human civilization from ancient times until this very day is one of the simplest of issues which almost every single human being whether the super brilliant men and women of science, or every leading minds of the human social order through every single men and women, all have totally pretended to not understand. The reason they pretended to not understand has been because they do not really want to correct it. All they want to do is condemn others for being evil, and if they could without serious consequences to themselves, to punish others (while holding themselves to be beyond such evils) for being evil or doing evil (that they hypocritically condemned) even to the extend of torturing and killing them.
And these continued on their sowing and perpetuating of evils until something really horrifying happened to them and there is no one they can blame it on, they then blame GOD. For those who are religious and claimed in self delusion to believe in GOD they would ask in pretend contrite humility, ‘Why God, why do the innocent and the blameless children suffer?’ For others who think of themselves as being super smart and supremely intelligent super genius because they are just too overwhelmingly magnificently smart and brilliantly intelligent to believe in an all knowing, all powerful intelligent CREATOR GOD, they then cynically ask, ‘If there is a god who is good, why then is there evil?’
So on the one hand we have all these evil people pretending to believe in the CREATOR GOD not because they really believe in HIM but because it makes them feel good andor secure (that they will go to heaven when they die) that they “believe” in HIM. Either that or they had been scared witless by some charlatans into embracing whatever religion they have subscribed to without really knowing anything true about it while thinking that they will go to heaven when they die as long as they obey these charlatans to do all their bidding.
Then on the other hand we have all these equally evil people who arrogantly think that they are so supremely smart and intelligent because they don't believe in a Creator God, when they are too stupid to even understand the simplest thing about life, reality and evil while at the same time totally clueless as to what they all actually believe in.
This is them all implicitly very explicitly asserting, acclaiming and proclaiming that not only is Absolute Nothing supremely intelligent but also supremely all powerful too having both the all the power and all the intelligence to be able to create everything after first having predefined all their properties and behaviors so that they can be created as per specifications, whether that of just our (physical) universe (and all that is in it), or even infinite multiple parallel endless universes and even infinite number of parallel endless time streams such that every instance of past, present and future are all coexisting in all their possible possibilities and impossibilities simultaneously infinitely continuously. So at the same time that they assert, acclaim, proclaim and pronounce that to believe in an intelligent all powerful, all knowing Creator God is the most stupid ridiculous idea, they then implicitly very explicitly assert, acclaim, proclaim and pronounce that to believe in Absolute Nothing as the all powerful, all knowing, all everywhere (because if absolute nothing exist then it very naturally must be everywhere eternally infinitely) supreme unbelievable incredulous intelligent Creator of all, as just the most mega super supremely wise, smart and supernova brilliantly intelligent thing anyone can ever believe in and subscribe to. Yes, to these proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of science, Darwinian Evolutionism and atheism, nothing creating everything is the absolute, ultimate, most supreme, rationally, intelligent idea that can ever be conceived.
Now if the people in these two categories mentioned above are really stupid (meaning not having any real intelligence) then no one can blame them. But these are not people with zero or marginal intelligence. They are not without an intelligent rational mind that can think, reason and figure things out. But they have all chosen to be either willingly or willfully ignorant through being too obsessively greedily lust driven in the pursuit of their lives and in the superfeeding of their egos.
Please read the discussion on willing ignorance and willfully ignorance in ‘The End Of The World Or Not - Part 3’ to learn why anyone who condemns or look down on others is just plain and simple both blatantly stupid and brazenly evil.
The evidence of GOD existence is glaringly obvious in the fact that we all (including everything we know of) exist. Neither has the CREATOR of all things not left mankind without any evidence and testimonies about HIM. HIS testimonies to all mankind are available today in numerous translations of the Christian Bible. The simple fact that the human social order have being plagued continuously by great evils ever since, is one of the most conclusive and undeniable proof of the existence of GOD, for that has been the exact explicit testimony of the message of the Gospel of the Kingdom of GOD.
If you can believe the records of the Holy Christian Scriptures, some two thousand years ago a man testified to the ancient vassal nation of Judea that they had to repent of their evil ways. This man said that he was sent by the GOD of the Jews to announce the coming of their MESSIAH. A MESSIAH all the religious Jews of those days pretended that they were eagerly awaiting. The Jews of those days pretended that they want to be faithful to their GOD, the GOD of their genealogical fathers – Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They pretended that they really love GOD and that they were faithfully performing and honoring (i.e. keeping) their Covenant, the Ten Commandments, with HIM. Among these Jews, all those who considered themselves very pious and religious, considered themselves as good, righteous and virtuous Jews faithfully keeping the commandments of their Covenant. But they were all evil blatant liars, almost every single one of them religious or otherwise.
¦¦¦¦¦¦ editorial work progressing ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦
When the MESSIAH testified to and pointed out by John the Baptist came and told them they had to repent and stop their evil ways, they plotted and had HIM tortured and murdered. And I wonder how many of you reading this might be hoping and wishing for a similar fate for me.
And if you would believe the Christian Holy Scriptures you would know that the very first man born to the family of mankind murdered his younger brother Abel because Abel had the right attitude in his conduct life whereas Cain was bent on the recourse to evil in the pursuit of his needs and his wants. From the very point when the first family of mankind chose to disbelieve their MAKER and GOD, their loving PROVIDER of everything good, they have embarked on their evil journeys through their civilization motivated by obsessive greed and lust. This has been the continuous history of the human social order until this very day, a history filled with violence and carnage; of mankind committing all manner of violent abuses and atrocities against one another. One would think that with so much history behind us, our supremely enlightened and incredibly advance social order would have learned the very simple lesson of evil by now. But take a look around you and you would (or should anyway) know that this is far from being the case. In fact if we would not deceive ourselves we would know that the worldwide pervasiveness and intensity of evil today had surpassed that of both the evil Antediluvian Age of Noah and the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah combined. And if we know this and if we truly really believe the Christian Holy Scriptures we should understand that the End of this Age is not that far off anymore.
When GOD created the first family of mankind, HE planted a special paradise garden for their habitation. The Garden of Eden was a paradise garden filled with all the things that were conducive to a peaceful, harm free life. There were no diseases or natural calamity or weather anomaly that would pose harm or danger or distress to Adam and his family. Every thing good was there except for two. There were only two things in the garden that pose a danger to Adam and his family.
One of these appeared to be a tree which fruits by appearance was as desirable as any fruit for consumption in the Garden. GOD named that one single tree among all the numerous other trees, ‘The Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil’. GOD could have called it several other names such as ‘The Tree That Brings Death’, ‘The Poisonous Tree’, ‘The Tree Of The Forbidden Fruit Of Sex’, ‘The Tree Of Good And Evil’, ‘The Tree Of Rebellion’, ‘The Tree Of Disobedience’, ‘The Tree Of Taking The Prerogative Of Deciding For Yourself What Is Good And What Is Evil’ or ‘The Tree That Will Poison Your Mind’. But GOD didn't, HE called it ‘The Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil’ as that was the most accurate definition of the tree. It was a tree which fruit when eaten would impart or give to the eater the ability to know the difference between good and evil. GOD names or calls things by what they are which is mainly what they do and how they behave – their defining properties or attributes. This is another consistent truth in the Scripture of Truth which nearly a whole world of evil religious systems which pretended to believe in GOD deliberately disregarded. But this tree was not the real danger, it was not even remotely a significant danger. There real danger to the family of mankind lies elsewhere in two other sources.
Please read in the blog ‘The Scripture Of Truth’ in the posts ‘In The Beginning’ and ‘A Dark Empty Wasteland’ how a Satan manipulated Angelic rebellion destroy all life on earth (Genesis 1:2) leading to the restoration and renewing of the earth in Genesis chapter 1 verses 3 onward. Also read about ‘The Tree Of Knowledge Of Good And Evil’ to understand why knowledge would cause death in the family of mankind ever since.
The first source of danger to the family of Adam was evil itself in a personage who had totally embraced evil as the tool to achieve his goals and desires. Evil was already in the creation when Adam and Eve were created. Evil was not something created into the creation even as the ‘nature’ of the creation is such that evil could potentially be conceived and to grow in it. Evil was what had led to the destruction of all life on earth before GOD renewed it and created the first family Adam, made in the image and likeness of GOD.
For close to two thousand years self proclaimed experts and authorities of the so called Abrahamic religions had been teaching that GOD created an earth in a total state of waste, emptiness and darkness. For the same period of time these same self proclaimed experts and authorities had implicitly advanced that GOD directly and purposely created evil when HE created demons and Satan (the Adversary) the Devil. This was embedded in their doctrines of man's fall from so called "grace" in the Garden of Eden. Every single religion that claimed to believe and claimed to reverence the ONE CREATOR had embedded and made abundantly clear, though implicitly, in their evil blasphemous doctrines that evil was created by GOD even as they explicitly claimed otherwise. This is just how cunning the originator and source of these religions are that it had all his evil servants and agents faithfully clearly, though implicitly, blaspheming the CREATOR GOD while pretending to praise and revere the CREATOR.
In almost every single accounts of the Garden of Eden of the so called ‘Fall from Grace’, evil anti GOD religious authorities and leading experts have taught of a Spirit personage tricking Adam and Eve into eating the ‘Forbidden Fruit’. And every single one of these evil religious authorities, experts and their so call The Messiah (or The Christ) or whatever self glorifying titles they conjured up to heap upon themselves, had totally and purposely left out any explanation why there would be such an evil personage (and other evil Spirit personages) in the creation in the first place. Fact is most of these evil religions all had this out of touch with reality incomprehensible (or insane for want of a better word) accounts of Spirit personages in the creation — why they are there in the first place meaning why did GOD create them) and most also have the same insane teaching of why GOD create mankind, all of which implicitly advanced the evil doctrine of a self serving glorifying GOD who craved adoration and to be worshiped.
And almost every single account by these evil anti GOD religious authorities, leading experts and self proclaimed messiahs and christs had advanced that GOD either purposely, intentionally i.e. according to HIS will, or of being totally clueless and unknowingly, allowed Satan (directly or in the form of a serpent) to test/tempt Eve (and also Adam) into disobeying GOD. In any case these evil doctrines either had GOD being complicit to evil in mankind or of being a clueless all knowing, all wise, all powerful, all everywhere GOD who was totally clueless, powerless and no where when Satan sneaked in to cause the so called Fall from Grace.
Please read in ‘What Is Religion And What Is Worship’ what are the real meaning of these two words where they were recorded original in the Christian Holy Scriptures which a world of evil anti GOD religions twisted and perverted so that mankind would not have a clue why GOD created them.
Whereas the true account of the Scripture of Truth if you can believe it, recorded that the Angels (i.e. the Spirit personages or beings) were created before the physical creation. And that these Angels were assigned with responsibility (and the necessary power and authority that comes with such responsibility) to oversee all creation under the final authority of GOD from GOD's throne or seat of government. Also the physical universe which was created a little later by GOD were given over to an assigned group of Angels under a lead Cherubim to oversee and further develop. Angels individually as created personages are not too different from mankind in the power granted to them to carry out and do things. But as Spirit personages they have both greater power and reach than severely limited mankind.
Please read the chapter ‘Angels, Demons And Men’ of ‘Bible 101 - The Holy Bible Expounded’ for the full discussion on how sin entered the creation and led to the destruction of all life on earth before the Genesis 1 verse 2 situation.
A brief discussion on this was also covered in ‘Genesis’ and ‘A Dark Empty Wasteland’. A similar discussion on what evil is can be found in the discussion series on why GOD created Satan in ‘Why Did GOD Create Satan Part 2’.
Sin entered the creation only after a very long period of time (possibly billions or more of earth years) and once it entered it began to spread. This parallel as a similitude when sin entered into the family of mankind. This was when the first family chose to distrust GOD fueled by lust and greed. Today despite the tremendous amount of knowledge that mankind had acquired there is still this great pretense of not understanding what evil is and consequently what sin is. Sin is just another word for evil because sin is the disobedience that arise from a refusal to believe the CREATOR, and consequently to go against the CREATOR. And evil which is sin carried out by intelligent personages with free will empowered minds, against their neighbors and against their CREATOR and PROVIDER, and ultimately also against themselves.
Evil entered the creation through a powerful, knowledgeable and splendid Cherubim class Angel given the authority and responsibility to administer and oversee the administration of GOD's government. As a freewill personage empowered with his own independent mind this Dawn-Star classed Angel begin to see himself as superior to all others including the GOD who made him. This is the same process by which nearly all of mankind of today have lifted up their hearts and minds through the gluttony of super feeding their self image (i.e. in ego supergorging lust) looking at themselves as superior, even as supreme whether in intelligence or in knowledge or in character or in everything. Fueled by this insatiable lust to boost his own self image perception this high ranking Angel lost perspective of himself and began to totally believe himself to be even superior over the GOD that created him.
And it is also through this same Dawn-Star class Angel that evil entered into the family of mankind, when the first family Adam and his wife Eve chose to disbelieve and distrust their CREATOR BENEFACTOR and GOD because they lusted after a fruit they had never needed or wanted until that point. Adam and Eve giving in to their greed and lust choosing to believe in lies rather than the simple obvious truth has been fully, clearly and continually reflected in the social order of mankind ever since.
And the evil that Adam and Eve had embraced, the evil of greed and lust of preferring to believe elaborate irrational lies rather than the plain and simple obvious truth, had continued on to plague the social order of mankind ever since. Today with the social order of mankind having at its command knowledge in every field of human existence and behavior as well as near complete knowledge of our existential realm in the law and forces of physics that framed and enable our existence, it is almost inconceivable that despite all these advances our societies are still plagued so pervasively by all manner of evil maneuverings and deceits, all manner of abuses and rampaging crime and violence.
And if you think you can believe the Christian Holy Scriptures evil will continue its rampages on the society of mankind until GOD will intervene to remove it for a time in the Day of the LORD when JESUS will return to restore the Kingdom to the Promise Land in the near future. And after that time, for a thousand years evil, will mostly cease in the society of mankind when this Dawn-Star classed Angel referred to in the Christian Holy Scriptures as Satan, the Devil, will for the first time since creation be restrained at JESUS CHRIST's return to avenge HIS Elect. But after the thousand years Satan will be again release for a short time to again sway the world of mankind at that time into the evil they had embraced before he (i.e. Satan, the Devil) was restrained.
The first point, to this whole episode, that GOD in HIS wisdom allowed to be played out over billions of (human earth) years, is that all it takes for evil to begin and spread is just one individual embracing it. And given time and the skill (and power to do evil) of that one who embraced evil, many others will follow suite.
The second point is that exercising of power is central to evil in the creation, and this is that evil at its most rudimentary is the abuse of power whether little or much. Fact is if you really, really understand the reality of existence, all existence, you would know (or should know anyway) that power is the be all and end all of existence. And this is that the whole of existence and reality, is because of power – the power to cause, to effect, to function, to think, to be, to exist and to be conscious and self aware to channel power. If you have a little power even it is just words from your mouth and nothing else beside that, the use of your ability to communicate to spread evil is just the beginning of evil through the abuse the power you have been given, to be able to communicate whether in speech or in prose. Naturally the more power you are empowered with the greater the evil you will do and more effectively evil you will become. This is the entire story of Satan the Devil and evil in the creation of GOD, from the deeds of just this one powerful Angel initiating evil among the Angels, as well as so nearly completely in the social order of mankind.
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
Nearly half of the over seven billions people living today claimed to believe either partially or fully or as a religious figurative story the account of the Genesis creation of the Christian Holy Scriptures. Among these there are many who believe the Genesis 1 accounts were literal in what it recorded while others believe them to be analogies or allegorical stories. Irregardless of what all those who claimed to believe the Christian Holy Scriptures as the word of GOD, really believed, none of them seem to remotely understand why GOD would made man, male and female, out of the dust of the ground. Why not out of nothing; or out of HIS breath such as: ‘GOD breathed and HE formed man, male and female’; or with a word of HIS mouth such as: ‘GOD spoke and man, male and female, existed’?
Because of the great knowledge and understanding about our universe and life in our planet how they all came about to be what they are today, and all the basic laws that defined and allow for their existence, our brilliant men and women of science have been telling us for years now that we are just animals, albeit more intelligent and having superior cognitive senses (brain/mind power) than our fellow lesser intelligent animals inhabiting this planet of ours.
Without GOD In The Picture [nogod]
And if you had really understood Christian Holy Scriptures what it recorded, you would know (or should know anyway) that, that too was exactly what GOD told us we would be. Yes the Christian Holy Scriptures very clearly revealed that we would be nothing more than just animals, if we take GOD out of the picture, out of our lives in refusing to believe HIM, to disregard HIM and all the things HE instructed and commanded us for our own good, well being and prosperity. The Christian Holy Scriptures had made it abundantly clear that if we were to take our MAKER and GOD out of our lives we would be nothing more than just animals, exactly as what our brilliant men and women of science have been telling us for years now, because in their arrogance they had taken GOD out of the picture claiming there is no such thing as a CREATOR, and that the universe they know about just existed all on its own when absolute nothing decided to become absolutely everything (either that or some other amazing theory/fable). Therefore so as all the other animals on this planet we are subject to injuries, illness and death exactly as all the other animals have been. But not only that, if you are cognizant of the history of the human race from as far back as there were records, human beings have for the most part until this day been behaving exactly as all the other animals of this planet except as being more intelligent and more social than other animals we have both conquered and expanded our habitat and increase our numbers through more skillful social maneuvering to survive, thrive and gain dominance.
In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return.
And that was exactly what GOD told the first family of man, Adam and Eve, when they rejected HIM as their GOD, choosing to disobey and distrust HIM effectively destroying and ending their family bond with GOD who created them and us (i.e. all mankind) to be HIS children having the potential to be 'born' through the process of Spiritual begetter and Spiritual gestation (through faith and growing in grace and knowledge in obedience) to be finally born when JESUS returns to restore the Kingdom.
But ever since the rejection by Adam and Eve in choosing to distrust then to rob GOD, every man, woman and child have been subjected to all the natural laws that governed and framed life on earth and in the physical Universe. GOD would no longer protect and shield them in the Garden of Eden from all the things that can harm them on this planet. That was one of the reasons GOD ejected them from the Garden of Eden telling them they would henceforth toil to sustain and safeguard their lives. If you can understand this therefore you would know full well that we, all mankind since Adam and Eve (except for the few whom GOD called into a Covenant relationship with HIM to accept and obey HIM as our GOD and SOVEREIGN OWNER), including almost every one who profess religion any and all religions (except the true Christianity that obeys and honors to fully without any alteration commemorates the New Passover Covenant made in the BLOOD of LORD JESUS), have in truth continued on the rejection of GOD and HIS rule over them.
So when anyone no matter who he or she is opened their mouth to question why do the innocents especially little children and babies suffer if there is indeed an all power Creator God, these people are basically explicitly blaspheming the GOD they alluded to: whether they claimed to believe in such a GOD or not; whether they in their self deception believed that they in their anguish are asking HIM why; or they in their scoffing mockery are openly ridiculing the idea that there is indeed a CREATOR GOD who love us.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
“If you love Me, keep My commandments.
He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”
If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
1 John 2:4
For indeed the GOD who created us does love us, and anyone who in real sincerity (as opposed to a fake, pretentious sincerity of such as the ancient Israelite freed from their Egyptian's slavery, the self glorifying religious Jews of the Apostolic days as well as today, the deceitful Prophet Balaam and the King of the ancient United Kingdom, Saul, as well as nearly every single person who professed religion) seeks the CREATOR to learn about HIM in order to be subject to HIM to obey HIM as their GOD, SOVEREIGN and MASTER, they will find HIM and be recognized and loved by HIM.
In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 4:10
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
They have all turned aside,
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.
Psalm 14:2 – 3
For there is not a just man on earth who does good
And does not sin.
For this reason GOD sent forth HIS SON begotten as a SON of man, born in the flesh in order that HE may with HIS OWN LIFE pay the death penalty incurred by every single member of mankind, taking on HIMSELF the penalty that is due on us by dying in our stead.
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.
1 John 2:2
So the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And He was numbered with the transgressors.”
For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law
As indeed the LORD JESUS being the LORD GOD through whom all things were created, HIS LIFE is therefore worth more than all and in dying JESUS was able to redeem all with HIS death the death penalty for sin that is due on all mankind, because all have sin and broken the Royal Laws and Holy Commandments of GOD.
One of the areas in which you will find scant Christian teachings or doctrines, whether that by true Christianity or false Christianity, is that concerning the significance of the Garden of Eden. Yet the Garden of Eden is an essential part of the Bible message that teaches us about GOD's plan and purpose for man on the planet earth.
What was the significance of GOD planting a garden in Eden? Why would GOD need to plant a garden for the first family of man? Isn't the earth created by GOD and restored to its original state after the destruction by rebellious Angels a conducive place to start off the first family of man made in the image of GOD?
Now if you have read through and had thoroughly studied the whole Christian Bible and really understood it you would have appreciated the fact that the planet earth in its present existing state (Romans 8:20 – 22) is not exactly a paradise made for mankind. That was why GOD planted a Garden for Adam and Eve to live in. That was also the same reason GOD evicted them when they broke faith with HIM in direct disobedience to rob HIM, choosing to trust and to believe a strange snake that talked rather the GOD WHO had created them and provided for all their needs.
For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Romans 8:20 – 21
After Adam and Eve had disobeyed GOD’s specific instruction and command not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, GOD told Adam they were to be driven from the Garden of Eden for robbing GOD, taking what was expressly forbidden:
Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:
“Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life.
Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
And you shall eat the herb of the field.
In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And to dust you shall return.”
Does it seem unfair to you that GOD would punish mankind for thousands of years because of the sin of the first family? Is it unjust of GOD that HE would penalize all mankind since Adam and Eve until this very day for the sin of one man and one woman? Is GOD unjust and cruel when innocent babies and little children not having done any evil suffer injuries, illness and death, many in horrifying and terrible ways?
Here is a simple allegory:
Adam and his wife Eve were the citizens of a prosperous and peaceful Kingdom, Abundance. Both Adam and Eve held good secure jobs that provided for all their needs: from security, food and shelter, health, recreation, freedom of movement and association. The Kingdom has no crime, no unemployment, no health problems, no danger from weather, climate and natural anomalies or disasters and thus everything a paradise could be. No one gets sick or fall ill or died from injuries of any kind. Everyone lives peacefully and healthily to a ripe old age. There is however one problem for Adam and his wife Eve. They wanted to have a say in how the country is ran and ruled. But the Kingdom being an absolute monarchy there is just no possibility for Adam and his wife Eve to achieve this ambition as they were just ordinary subjects. Dissatisfied with their life situation, Adam and Eve then chose to migrate to another country, Freeforall, with all of their children thus renouncing and giving up their citizenship privileges in the country and Kingdom of their birth.
Adam and Eve and his children disowned their country of origin and birth and took up citizenship in a country called Freeforall. In this country everyone have a a say in how the country is ruled and ran. But the country sits on a the edge of two tectonic plates, has mountains that are mostly volcanoes, as well as is prone to adverse weather from drought to hurricanes, cyclones and tornadoes. Also because everyone has full total say in how the country is ran and none can fully agree, the country is basically in chaos, with the rich having great power which they used to preserve their wealth and power while the poor resort to crime to gain wealth and power. With everyone looking out for themselves only, the country is plague with disease epidemic, horrific pollution and all manner of violence and exploitation.
Over the years Adam and Eve's children started families of their own. Sixty years after moving to this country Adam and Eve lost three of their eight children and twelve of their twenty-two grand children, some to horrific violent crime and carnage, others to tormenting disease and others still torn to pieces by wild beasts.
And here is the question:
Can Adam and Eve or his children and grand children then after becoming the citizens of another country go and confront the King and ruler of their former country and asked him why he being a great caring and loving King had he allowed Adam and his family to suffer all these horrifying illness, injuries and death in their current country of citizenry?
What Do Little Innocent Babies Grow Up To Be? [transitory]
According to statistic there are over seven billion (of an ever increasing number of) people alive in the world today. If we were to do a statistic questionnaire of all these over seven billion people (minus those who are too young to understand as well as those who are too insane), how many of these people would actually admit (especially to themselves) that they are evil. In all my life I probably personally encountered (have dealt with or at least converse with or spoken to) from around a thousand or more people but I know for a fact that not a single one of these considered themselves to be evil. Many actually considered themselves to be good decent people.
In a world of billions of people there are in all probability some who actually think of themselves as evil and they are probably very proud of that fact. But I tell you, most if not all, of the most evil of people who have ever lived didn't think of themselves as evil. And living among us today, are some of the most evil of people who have ever lived (we shall get to this a little later in this discussion). In fact living among us today, there are more of the most evil people who have ever lived than ever before, not only as an absolute number but also as percentage of the total population. How about you, do you think you are pretty decent and good? And even if not, do you think of yourself as evil?
In the Antediluvian world of Noah, of all those of Noah's generation, other than Noah there was not a single righteous person so let us not even talk about good people. That was the reason GOD destroyed every single one (except for Noah and his immediate family and their spouses), every man, woman and child. Was GOD evil to kill even the innocent little babies who have not done anything evil being still too young to be able to do so? What do you think?
Please the chapter ‘Self Righteousness And The Righteousness Of GOD’ of ‘Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded’ by this author for the discussion why GOD allowed and even commanded the killing of babies and young children during the time when the children of Israel begin to take possession of the Promise Land.
How about Sodom and Gomorrah? Weren't there innocent little babies there when GOD rained down fire and brimstone from heaven to totally consumed (i.e. burnt up) those twin cities? Was GOD unrighteous and unjust when HE killed all the innocent babies there together with all the evil adults in those twin cities? What do you think?
Do you know that the Christian Holy Scriptures recorded that when the LORD JESUS CHRIST returns from Heaven as the LORD of Lords and KING of Kings to restore the Kingdom of GOD to the Promise Land in the very near future, HE will wipe out (totally destroyed with disease, war, famine, calamities natural and supernatural) some ninety percent of the world population of that time. And among these ninety percent of some nine to ten billion people living at the End of the Age, there will be many, many millions of innocent little babies. Would JESUS CHRIST be unrighteous, unjust and evil when HE does that? What do you think?
When JESUS came born as a SON of man to the ancient vassal nation of the Jews, HE told the Jews living in those days that they were evil.
But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
Was the religious authorities the only ones JESUS were referring to when HE called them an ‘evil and adulterous generation’? Or was HE referring to everyone living then in that vassal nation of the Jews, everyone who was a member or subject of the vassal nation of Judah?
How about the twelve who were handpicked by JESUS to be HIS twelve Apostles? And how about the rest of the disciples of JESUS as well as those of John the Baptist? Were these excluded by JESUS when HE referred to that generation as evil? What do you think?
While speaking to the masses that gather around HIM, JESUS taught HIS handpicked Apostles and other disciples on the Mount of Olive.
Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
Matthew 7:9 – 12
Anyone who even understand anything at all about the message of the Gospel they would know that JESUS taught not the masses who followed and gathered around HIM seeking not to hear HIS Words, but to receive healing and to be fed. The message and lessons that JESUS taught were specifically for HIS servants, HIS Apostles and other disciples (then and now). So when JESUS said, ‘If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts..........’, in as much as HE referred to every single human being, HE included all those that were HIS handpicked Apostles and disciples.
And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?”
He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.
Matthew 13:10 – 11
Every single member of mankind starting from Adam and Eve have sinned. Everyone (this author not excluding) have committed some form of evil both in words as well as in deeds at some point in their lives. And with total certainty everyone who is alive and can function to think and contemplate then to act out these thoughts, contemplation and intents whether in works or in speech, will also continue to sin and commit evil, even as a very relatively few will try their utmost not to do so with considerable (but not total) success. Everyone (every creature personage) without except can be evil, can choose to do evil. And every member of mankind who have grown to adulthood in their lives since Adam and Eve, have chosen to do evil in their lives, in the living out of their lives. We are evil not because we can choose to do evil but because we being awake and aware have chosen to do evil, we have all done some evil in the course of our lifetime.
Anyone who denies that he or she has ever done evil is either self deceivingly or blatantly lying. Anyone who denies this is also implicitly calling GOD a liar and that itself is evil, among the worst of evils that any creature personage can ever commit. For this is the explicit evil and sin of blasphemy.
This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
1 John 1:5 – 10
“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Luke 18:10 – 14
Today, if you think you can believe the Christian Holy Scriptures, almost every leader and elder of GOD's people, whether those in the Church of GOD or those outside of the Church (Revelation 12:17) either from the previous few era that had stopped working or those from the scattering (Revelation 3:16) in the Great Apostasy or Falling Away (2 Thessalonian 2:3) of 1995 C.E., leading their own organization and congregation, these are all sinning the sin of the Pharisee of Luke 18. Even as all of them are pretending to themselves in self deceiving humility that they are sinners, yet their hearts are lifted up, shutting tight their eyes and closing up their ears so they neither see or hear the Words of GOD that speaks against them commanding them to repent (Revelation 12:17 – 19). For what would possess them that they who cannot be deceived (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22), except that the great lusting and greed of their hearts to gorge and to super feed their egos, have led them to harden their hearts in full arrogance while pretending humility as they embraces lies after lies that blaspheme GOD seeking only that they might advance their temporary meaningless position of authority, seeking after the temporary great name and its associated reward of this life considering it more valuable that the eternal inheritance that is GOD's promise rewards to all who are faithful.
Everyone of us were innocent little babies at one time in our lives. Some of us grow up to be fairly law abiding citizen of our country, others fully embracing all the evil of their social order, while others still, go way over and beyond that to become career criminals, serial rapists, serial murderers and even mass murderers. Do you know why, why some grow into responsible adulthood, others to be totally self focus to the extend of becoming career criminals, serial rapists, serial murderers and mass murderers? And do you also know that the thousands to millions, from since the very beginning until this very day, of those who did not become career criminals, predators and parasite on mankind, all those who were decent responsible subjects of their social order, that many to most, too were (those in past) and are (those alive today) murderers either directly taking part in murders or giving support to those who murder. Go read the daily news!
A very, very small percentage among us actually are at this current point in our lives trying to be fair minded people seeking to do what is right in every way we can and know how, and to do what is right by all those we deal with in our lives. But the great majority of mankind are actively pursuing a life course that always has evil if not as their first option then their second or fall back option.
If anyone has discerning eyes to see, they would realize (or should realize) that almost every single member of the human social order who have attained to position of wealth and/or power are not the innocent blameless untouched by evil but the exact total opposite.
So what does that mean? Innocent babies are not a permanent state of anyone. Every innocent babies born into this current Age of Man (except for the ONE who came from GOD) grows up to be just another evil personage. Those who are truly blameless are not the innocent babies who know not right from wrong, good from evil, but those who through the course of their lives after understanding right from wrong, good from evil then fully and sincerely believe GOD, to faithfully obey HIM seeking to walk humbly before HIM to do HIS will and do what is good, right and pleasing to GOD.
And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you, so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.
1 Thessalonian 3:12 – 13
The truly innocent and blameless are not those who have never encountered evil, but those who have learned and known evil and coming to understanding choose to have no part of it. And these are not the super virtuous and righteous man and woman of this world past or present, but those whom when GOD corrects them, they humbled themselves before GOD to turn from the evil they had embraced. If you think you can believe the Christian Holy Scriptures in the total message that it recorded and taught, you would understand that the whole of it recorded the process by which GOD in creating intelligent free will personage is educating all those who would not be too arrogant to learn the lesson of evil in themselves so that they may determine (i.e. make a conscious, steadfast and committed resolve) never ever again to entertain it as a recourse to their lives. There is no greater evil in the hearts and minds of man then the evil of self exaltation, even if such self exaltation are very humble and lowly self exaltation.
A person considered by many to be a shinning example of humility, virtue and leadership was quoted to have said:
“A teacher who establishes rapport with the taught, becomes one with them, learns more from them than he teaches them. He who learns nothing from his disciples is, in my opinion, worthless. Whenever I talk with someone, I learn from him. I take from him more than I give him.”
Unfortunately his own words exposed his own very self deceiving very humble and lowly self exaltation (i.e. ego supergorging). And as the Christian Holy Scriptures testified: There is none righteous, no, not one; There is not a just man on earth who does good and does not sin.
Anyone who looks upon another or considers another as somehow inferior to them is guilty of the lust and greed of the self exaltation (i.e. of ego gorging, super feeding or ego supergorgin) that is the primary root (i.e. the mother of, and the lust that spawns all lust) to all the evil in the creation. It is one thing to speak out to expose evil and all those who have embraced it (in the hope that they might see and understand to turn from it) for the harm it does to all and sundry but it is something else all together when you think you are (i.e. hold yourself to be) somehow or in someway better than, superior to being more holy, saintly, intelligent, wise, pure, virtuous and/or righteous than others.
