Why do you interpret frustration as fear?
I appreciate your honest portrayal of your perspective here. I can sympathize at least with all of it.
The other side of the coin is the Godly perspective. It is fairly similar, but the shift is away from how good we are or are getting. We do not believe men get better, but worse.
With knowledge comes power, and power is corrupting.
The collective tends to believe in their own superiority, especially when they have a majority. These always give rise to the tyrannical dictator, always.
The best part of that idea is that you can force an education on the dumbest and get them up to speed. What actually happens in the end is just genocide. They are too dumb for their own good, so death.
Shifting the focus from how good (the best) men are to a realization that we are not, and that God is good provides us a much better model, and in my mind the most accurate model. God is good.
But we can all lament that those danged good men will take this paradigm and take it on themselves still to kill off the dumb ones, even in the name of God. This isn't what Christ taught us, he taught us to take up our cross.
But there it is, men aren't that good, or are rarely that good at least.
I think you may be putting words in my mouth, if I understand your post. Property rights over human rights? Explain this if you will.
My people created this world? Certainly Christians have played a part in the world, but created it's brokenness?
If God exists, and dysfunction exists, would God be to blame for it?
Maybe if you can help me understand what you are saying I won't be so much of a moron. That could be good for us both.
