What is freedom…real freedom? Is it the ability to do whatever you want? Is it the condition that allows you think & believe anything you want, the way you want? What if I believe it is okay to rob banks? What makes that action wrong, but I digress?
Baruck Spinoza (1632-1677), stoic philosopher, a heterodox thinker focusing on rationalism, is much praised in academia. He decided God was no longer the creator of the universe, ruling by His divine providence. How convenient for him! This sets the stage to allow his view that a person has the right to interpret Scripture as they wished. Thus, our current state of subjectivism is born and still running wild.
Unfortunately, many Protestants, rejecting subjectivism, filled the void with a scientific approach…this is just a different name for escaping from God’s Holy Word. Now a person can do what they want, believe what they want, and define right & wrong away they chose to do.
Look around, this is where we are today!
As humans get rid of God, they must fill the void…with themselves. It is an old problem, now being regenerated. Days of old, things moved slowly; today, information (good or bad) is around the world in seconds. Now, we see this “God doesn’t exist” void is being filled with pride…the same pride of Lucifer before he was cast out of Heaven, or the pride of Adam & Eve wanting the knowledge of God. The pride that people are as powerful as God; the pride the arrogance that humans can actually manipulate world-wide climate. I wrote a whole chapter on the “climate change” hoax in my new book, “Trying to be God“. World climate has always been changing since creation, as part of God’s providence; however, today’s movement is actually about controlling people, not climates.
Follow your subjective agenda, follow science (actually, I like science, much is in my first book, “I Am, the Great Creator God“)…but neither will provide you truth. Only the Holy Bible will provide you real Truth…if you still want to know.
