Masking Motives???

Posted: July 2, 2018 in World On The Edge

No one disagrees that there are both good and evil in the world.

But if there are both good and evil in the world, where does it come from? Does it come from physically earth-bound human beings? Or does it emanate from entities far beyond us in a never-ending battle for our very souls?  Yes, a human being is not only a physical being, but a spiritual being as well.

We human beings are at once loveable, and yet, at the same time, capable of being despicable. We have helped our fellowman, and yet, by  wars, crimes, false faces, and self-serving motives, we have intentionally hurt and even destroyed our fellowman. All historical writings show this, especially the Bible which shows it in the context of adherence or non-adherence to absolute truth, found in a higher power called God.

So today, do we as individuals adhere to a higher power, or only our own power? Have human beings forgotten there is indeed a higher power who has set within us not only the intangibility of our intellect (Memory, Imagination, and Free Will, the ability to make right or wrong decisions) but also decisive standards for goodness?

Throughout history many human beings have taken on the role of God, seeing themselves as beings in charge of all standards, standards they–not God–have created. And that is because adherence to a higher power is not always comfortable or convenient. In fact, more often than not, it is a struggle we don’t want to endure, and yet, in that difficult struggle is the path to our eternal happiness.

In today’s world, we have so much more materially than those who have gone before us–but there is much confusion about who a human being is, and what his purpose is meant to be. Some people, especially those grasping for political office, appear to see themselves as set upon the earth distinctly for their own purposes, using others to get there. They want to change our way of thinking. They want to control us, and our vote. The political and moral climate of our present America has spawned many people like this who want to change the moral and political mores of our country, and they are “not nice” in their attempt to do it.  Much of their playbook is from Saul Alinsky’s, Rules for Radicals–straight from the 1960’s. Alinsky was a communist and community activist who wrote about how to successfully run a movement of social change. His goal for the Rules for Radicals was to create a guide for future community organizers to use in uniting low-income communities.

To mask their real motives, and to confuse Americans, the people following this playbook spout ‘nice-sounding’ but self-serving phrases such as “Love conquers Hate, etc. without applying the phrase to themselves. But what they are really after are hateful things, such as abortion on demand, gay rights and all it entails, the dissipation of traditional marriage, the “give-away” of America through illegal immigration, and even the outrageous idea that a person can choose his or her sex. The confusion is being assisted by an undisciplined media, including most of Hollywood and some of the music industry, and even misguided theologians who we might expect to know better, yet they don’t appear to.

We should not be lead astray.

Daily, everyone chooses between good and evil. It is our human nature. A mature person recognizes the signs of evil within himself, and attempts to re-attach to the good by seeking forgiveness and moving forward. Catholics call it the sacrament of Reconciliation or Confession. But when someone cannot/will not admit wrong-doing out of selfishness, a big problem exists for him or her. Instead of admitting they are doing wrong, and trying to fix it, they go overboard to make their wrong SEEM right.  Exactly what is happening in our present America through the playbook of the left.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.—Isaiah 5:20

It is important to realize that trickery is being used today by some people with intentionally selfish motives. It is important to remember that wolves have been known to wear sheep’s clothing. Let’s think for ourselves, not jump on a very wrong bandwagon that will not only take us down individually, but our country as well. We must use our common sense.

Most of all, we should realize that ‘LOVE” is not a word to throw around when it’s convenient to our own end result, but it is a word to live up to. Love is a an action that comes from our spirituality, not our physicality. Love is the all-encompassing standard created within us by God.

Don’t be fooled into becoming a simple sheep following the wolves in false sheep clothing. We are not part of a mind-less herd, and not just  faces in the crowd to be used for convenience, or votes. We are divinely created originals, with a spiritual purpose set into us by God.
