God's Primary Means of Judgment

Be warned:
God's primary means of discipline for humanity,
Is to allow us to have exactly what we say that we want;
Even though, according to His Law, that is not what we need.
This is what it means to be "consequentially educated." When He can no longer instruct us, then He will permit our sin to do it instead... It is however, a much less gracious, but far more harsh master...
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.
Romantic 1:28

Secular Progressivism - A Worldview

1. The truth is,
Devout Secularists believe
Their program for the improvement of Humanity
Is far superior to the ideology of any Religion,
Including that of the Christian God (Even though historically, the existence of Social Progressivism would be impossible, without the Christian Faith).
2. Secular Progressivism (on the whole) is clearly the most aggressive and dominant worldview and ideology within the American Culture today.
3. Many self-identifying Christians in our Culture today, are in actuality, more akin (at their core) to being Secular Progressvists, with a Christian mantle; rather than being Christian in their core, accompanied with Christ-like parallels to Secular Progressivism (as they like to think).
Remember, the inexorable nature of a worldviews is: "There can be only one."


A mother lives
And therefore, exercises her right to choose...
An infant is terminated
Before they can exercise their choice to live...

True Salvation in Christ

There can be no Salvation (Temporal and Eternal) without Righteousness
There can be no Righteousness without Obedience
There can be no Obedience without Repentance
There can be no Repentance apart from an encounter with the Holiness of God, through Jesus Christ...
And this is the other side of the proverbial coin about why some deny Jesus Christ...
Some reject Jesus because they have never encountered a compelling representation of Him in the life of a Believer
This is True...
Equally True however is:
Still others reject Jesus precisely because they have had an authentic encounter [Charakter];* and the Cost is, quite simply, too great...
Inauthenticity often fails to allure...
Authenticity often drives away...
Notably, the second one happens far more, than many think.** Especially those who have made a living, by drawing attention to the first...
* Heb 1:3
** Including fellow believers

Imputed Righteousness

"Imputed Righteousness" -
It's blessed but painful cost,
regarded apathetically by believers in the Church;
and the eternal penalty for its absence, 
no longer compelling and relevant
to the unbelieving world...
1 Therefore, since we have been declared RIGHTEOUS by FAITH, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ... (9) since we have now been declared RIGHTEOUS by His BLOOD, we will be saved through Him from wrath.
Romans 5:1,9
