Mans need for power and control over his environment, has always lead, to his creating an image, and ideology of a god.
Men over time, have lost the initial meaning for a government, and have in its place, created two very distinct, somewhat different ideologies. Both well meaning in their purpose, but still, gods. Neither god wants the other god to gain power, for both believe its their own ideology, that holds the truth. Neither want their god to lose power, for then the other god will dominate the publics trust. And that in itself, would prove their god, lesser. It would prove they werent strong enough in their belief in their god, therefore, their god will be annhiliated, stripped of its power, position and priviledge.
Both sides believe "GOD" is on their side. Not the gods they seek power for, but the GOD they wish their people to believe is in them! If we reason that for just one moment, that in itself would be a belief in TWO GODS?
And as we bemoan politics, and its partisanship. And how divided our country has become, we never ask ourselves..when did we begin to believe in 2 GODS?Could it have been when some mortal mans philosophy, claimed "God was Dead?" Could it have happened when politics became more reliant on being a source of our entertainment, rather than a place to look for men of principle? I claim to know not, when it devolved, only that it has, and will remain so, as long as we continue to see Government as Our GOD.
Anything that is created for the good of the whole, in time, can be corrupted by its own idolatry. And Government is no exception. We even hear biblical quotes to support a position or a desired program, when at the same time we hear separation of church and state. This governement god, is at times, somewhat schizophrenic in its own secular religious beliefs.
The problem is, that it will remain this way, as long as we continue to make, the politics of men, the religion of GOD.
There is HOPE, in that once we realize what we have done, we can remove these false gods, and return the GOD OF ABSOULTE TRUTH, to where HE RIGHTFULLY BELONGS. Not in the power that can corrupt all men, but in the sacredness within a mans heartfelt Soul. . Not as collective brain washed partisans, spewing the dogma of their "only their right",party line.!
We can begin fresh, anew, by not accepting that the GOD OF TRUTH, lives in either of these ideologies. THAT HIS LIFE, IS ABOVE THE POWERFUL DRIVE OF EARTHLY MEN.
For no government can express CHRIST TRUTH. When it has to use, half truths, or untruths to move its agenda... Doing this in order to make separate their two distinct and different gods. No government can speak in wholes truths, for then they would be seeking oneness in their purpose and agenda.
If we wish to be united again under ONE GOD...we must first remove the belief that He lives in one party or the other, or that He lives for the sake of government alone!
For if that were true, our GOD would be so small, as to not have the POWER of HIS TRUTH! WE WOULD HAVE MADE THE PLANTARY SOUL, OF THE UNIVERSAL CHRIST/GOD..into nothing more than a political gesture... rather than the ABSOLUTE TRUTH, HE IS. We would have become children of a lesser god ..THAN THAT OF A UNIVERSAL GOD..One in whose LOVE, LIGHT AND TRUTH LIVES IN THE SOUL of ALL MEN. Not for the purpose of a government or a cause, but for the purpose of seeking the Heavenly Truths that are held in our eternal Soul/Christ
