Part I. The Compulsive Problem of Biblical Legalism
In spite of the core beliefs, I am surprised to say in what at first glance appeared to be Christians waving Biblical authority in people's face like a flag was a way to unconsciously compensate or counteract that burst of intellectual absolutism and moral relativism infecting the Western world, is, in fact, a form of legalism running rampant in the Church. But I don't think it's a coincidence. If anything, it's a symptom of infection.
Pride & Peer Pressure: A Tale of Two Rights
Our emphatic emancipation of authentic moral law will eventually abstract our sense of certainty, emaciate our sense of empathy and enslave our essence into a vacuum of erratic emotivism, sucked in by the gravitational lust for excessive self-experiential existence. In its place is an equivocal ethos aroused by Epicurean exhibitionism and then evangelized as some sort essential element for equal being, forced to erupt from an explosion of escapism. If etiquette is ethics, then economy is equality. This existential exchange of transcendent edification for earthly enhancement trades the everlasting for an eternity of infinite regression. – Who is ever right and who be never wrong?
Is it a coincidence that with our inefficacy to differentiate evil from good with any sort of exactness we in turn enrich moral exclusivity and then engender epistemological skepticism? – And for what end? A feeling! – At what cost to our soul? If equality is measurable, than humans be bought and sold. – What then is free? Our desire for liberty has made all things inclusive, yet the heart of man, mutually exclusive. – Who then can empathize? Our desire for equality exists in isolation alone yet man is utterly meaningless is isolation we‘re told. – Who then is equal? Our desire for more will be measured and weighed. The trade of all trades! Who wins in this exchange? Who holds the better hand? God, Satan, or Man? Once more we’ve been bought at a price, but this time we’re worthless.
