Ethics of Your Own Volition

Americans are full of themselves. In a study done by OECD, Pisa, they found that, to make it easy, while Americans are uneducated, yet they believe themselves to be hot stuff. Best in the world, in fact. However, this just isn't true. Americans are falling behind, quite quickly in fact, in both Science and Math. But I really don't care about this fact. I've come to find Americans are just as full of themselves in regards to ethics and epistemology. They literally know nothing about ethics and epistemology and yet at the same time are more than happy to educate you on them.. I.e. reddit.. >_< They have no reason for what they do. They have no hope. And yet, you couldn't find someone more convinced that they're right. There are generally two types of people who are going to come against Christians who have any sort of Biblical basis for their epistemology and ethics.

Number one, there are the general homosexual and feminist crowd. This is the far left five percent. Typically, their arguments involve screaming, anger, and other illogical ramblings. The majority have barely evolved past four letter words. There's the occasional smarty who really has no basis for speaking, but they try to sound smart. They occasionally misquote the Bible, and tell you about how they were a Christian at one time. This group has nothing to say, and are really just angry at you for rejecting their evil lifestyles. 

The group that truly saddens me though, is Christians who perceive themselves to be helping out mankind. They say they love God, and yet at the same time hate 80% of what he says. And it's not really hate, because Christians love others. By loving them, they mean sending them on their merry way to hell. The road to hell has always been paved with plenty of good intentions. They're more than happy to join forces with those who hate God and scream with the best of them at Christians who want to see any change.

Ultimately, they don't want change. They may not like what they're seeing in the general culture, and yet have not woken up to the realization that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the very definition of insanity.

We need change. 42% of children are born without fathers. How does no one understand this? And I'm sure this statistic would be in the 60s-75%s if abortion wasn't doing it's best to lower that statistic. How can half of marriages ending in divorce be okay? How can 95%+ of Americans fornicating be a good thing? Millions of babies die every year, due to selfishness and hatred. These statistics are growing, and they aren't slowing down. Is this the country you want to see? 

This is a country that was once great. It had strong Christian roots, with Christians that wouldn't give in to a little persecution. They fought hard to make this country free. They had many Christian fundamentals. It was built on the backs of thousands of pastors who were martyred. They believed in a Christian ethic that is determined by the Word of God. But now, we are no longer Christian. We are now the liberal west. Countries like Russia now look at us with disgust and say, we must reject your liberalism if we will survive as a country.

We have built a country with almost no character. The middle class is being eliminated. Sexuality is almost completely ruined. And yet Christians can barely see beyond the end of their own nose.

Wake up. Smell the blood. It's not pretty.

But what's the solution?

Love God. And obey His commandments. Simple.

"He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him." ~ John 14:21

We have his commandments. They're in that book called the Bible. Study them. And stop listening to the world. Stop reading the Aristotle's, Plato's, and other geniuses who hated God. Study the Word of God. That's where it's at.
