We’ve reached our discussion’s final point; critical theory’s means for correcting oppression. Its objective is making society more just. Being just requires morality. Morality is a quality of rightness; virtue. It relates to character or conduct from the point of view of right and wrong.

Today’s article concerns epistemology. Epistemology is philosophy’s branch investigating the nature and validity of human knowledge—truth. Philosophy historically tries to answer questions related to existence, morality, and knowledge. It searches for truth. As noted last time, critical theory is simply an ideology, one where philosophy plays a key role in defining truth. As with all ideologies, this one too centers around governance—in a word, politics.

Why the Lies? looked at some differences in tone, vision, and content between the two recent political conventions. The first event was primarily lecturing and painted a picture of things seen as wrong. All of which government would correct for you. The second presented a vision. One where you experienced greater independence and freedom in building and living your own life. The first tore down; the second built up. There is nothing wrong with having differences. What matters is how we address them.

Both political conventions are over. They presented a stark contrast in both tone and vision. The first was at times fearful, intimidating, divisive, and deceptive. Almost all its 34 listed speakers were government officials telling us what we needed to do—a self-appointed ruling elite. The second offered a vision both hopeful and inclusive.

God designated two spheres of power where man is to exercise dominion. They are God’s through His act of creation and not man’s. He provides their basis so both require stewardship. They are religion and governance. The first teaches people what is right and good. The second enacts justice when someone acts unjustly. Our natural rights to assemble and communicate give us the opportunity to learn and practice doing good as individuals and a society. This occurs through the customs, behavioral expectations and standards we create through our choices.

We hear this phrase daily from the media, CDC, on the radio, in ads and articles. But what does it really mean? The last several articles looked events around the Coronavirus in relation to the end times. We can use those same events to learn about our responsibility for stewardship and duty. We’ll focus on the relationship aspect first as that is more relevant. Stewardship over things will come later.

Jan Markell recently wrote about the church’s silence regarding current events and the end times. I had to smile as I read it, as I was in the process of putting this article together. She closed with “You can almost hear their hooffbbeats.”

 

I say they are here and have been for some time. The four horsemen mark the beginning of God’s first set of judgments in the book of Revelation. Judgment occurs because of man’s rejecting God’s laws. We have the free will to make that choice, but it comes with consequences.
