The World Will Be As OneismDecember 28, 2013
“Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…”
~ John Lennon
Our sociopolitical landscape is constantly taking bigger and bigger steps towards its conceived oneness-utopia. Essentially, it is a lovely place where the final causation, or what something is naturally designed for, is dissolved. Reality is our to invent. Our bodies are putty in our hands. We are gods over them and are able to do as we please. This is the reality of our ever-increasing neo-pagan society which is not certain about anything except that it doesn’t like anything Christian. Our society has no standards of its own. So instead, being against Christian standards has become it’s standard of choice. The anti-standard is the standard.
We are trying to achieve what Dr. Peter Jones calls “Oneism”, just as Lennon would have us “live as one”. I would urge you to watch this hour long lecture which Jones gives. It touches on how the spirit of “Oneism” (a purging of the Creator/creation distinction).
Traditional ways are shunned. Authority is evil. Autonomy is the only freedom. Do not conform, unless it is conforming to non-conformism. We are not to look to the natural design in creation and gleam from that as to how to relate to one another and the world. We are to invent, create, and sustain our own version — our own reality of what we should be and how we should relate. The only absolute is saying there is no absolute. The only sin is saying there is sin. When one does this they are considered courageous.
We do away with gender and sex distinction, as well as male and female roles. Which is odd because men still can’t give birth, and I don’t know of any men who are interested in dating Caitlyn Jenner. Robert Downey Jr’s character in Tropic Thunder is more black than Rachel Dolezal, yet she is praised by some in being a white woman who exploits black-victim status. We have many things confused, mixed up, and backwards. We have opened up the flood gates to all kinds of perversity and the last hour to salvage any sanity is long gone. We were essentially told that “normalizing” homosexuality wouldn’t create a slippery slope, yet now we are in a free-fall.
To merely quote to Bible today is hate speech. It doesn’t matter that the Bible is so open minded that it looks at everyone’s sin. It doesn’t matter that the Bible celebrates diversity and finds all with guilt. It doesn’t matter that the BIble even condemns heterosexual sin along side homosexuality. As long as one says that homosexuality is sinful, one must be deemed a bigot. They must be made a public example of so that everyone will look upon them and fear the consequences. This is actually akin to occult-like behavior, extreme fascism, and fear mongering.
In every interview it is asked of every pastor what their stance is on homosexuality. No one cares what they think about straight sin, but they get right to homosexuality. Christians are accused of only focusing on homosexuality, yet gay advocates love to use the issue of homosexuality as their “hate speech” litmus test. If one affirms it then they are applauded, praised, and considered courageous. But If they say it is a sin then they set themselves up as public enemy number 1, whether they like it or not.
But I propose that we do 3 things:
1. Be humble
Our remarks should be “let’s repent together”, not merely “they need to repent”. So often it’s been the case that the church has asserted it’s own righteousness. Yet, it is never to do that. It is to also keep on repenting.
2. Be shrewd as serpents
In being shrewd we should point out that even “gay-Christians” believe that infidelity is a sin. Thus we must ask back to the interviewer, “Is anything sinful, and why?” If something is sinful, then why do they get to so say it without being called a bigot?
We need to start pointing out people’s hypocrisy and have their arguments turned around on them. They deserve to know what they sound like. “Do you disagree with many gay-Christians who believe monogamy is God’s standard for gay-marriage?” “Some gays are against gay-marriage. Are they being bigoted?”
3. Be innocent as doves
Today’s society will assume that anyone telling you you’re wrong must be out to hate you and destroy you, not love you and protect you. It’s near impossible for our confused society to imagine that one could love you and still point out your sin. Yet, the church has too often beat people up with their sin, and beat people up with the BIble which points out the sin. But this is a problem with people, not the Bible. Nevertheless, many will find you to be guilty by association. Merely saying that homosexuality is sinful surely must only empower one to beat people up with words, thus let’s ban all mention of even saying it’s sinful — so goes the thinking.
Yet Jesus said to remove the tree trunk in your own eye, then never judge anyone. Actually, no, that’s not what he said. He said remove the tree trunk in your own eye, then you will be careful to remove the splinter in your neighbor’s eye. Lay out your own sins, struggles, and temptations that you’re facing. Then your motives will be for the best in carefully telling others about their sin.
