On morality...

I think our current moral landscape is partly the way it is because the last, almost, 250 years has been predominantly a humanist sense making era with Christians hiding in the back ground without asking proper questions about this humanist movement.

To me it is almost funny, but mostly sad, to see Christianity being indignant about this. The way I see it is that the moment Christianity plays its proper role in society, then the resulting freedom of thinking leads to all kinds of humanist sense making efforts.  But somehow Christianity also misunderstand their "moral safe existence" as unthinking agents, that God somehow turned into Christian zombies, chanting moral laws without knowing why or for what purpose.

Wake up Christianity and make sense of this humanist assault on reason and righteousness!  God willing, and I suspect He does, Christianity will, eventually, do its best to make proper sense of this.

A summary of my current sense making effort:

There seems to be some very fundamental rights that lead to morality that eventually leads to universally just societies that is at least capable of operating in righteousness...

It is clear to me that only the ability to claim complete freedom from a "fear of death"*, can cascade into the following list of 5 rights, which means that any "fear of death" and by extension materialist notion of reality will completely prevent the following rights:
  1. The right to freely allocate meaning.
  2. The right to freely enter into agreements.
  3. The right to change parasitic** agreements or relationships into symbiotic*** agreements or relationships.
  4. The right to freely change your environment.
  5. The right to access the energy required to bring into affect any planned change, by using what ever symbiotic means is available.
Our ability to discern a symbiotic state from a parasitic state of affairs flows from our nature that can allocate meaning to things according to some external standard that logically has to achieve absolute righteousness/rightness, else there are no freedoms or rights.  This in no way implies that our ability, or right, to freely allocate meaning will be able to achieve this absolute standard, it is simply a required state that axiomatically exists.  Just as no description of any objective aspect of nature can ever claim to be a perfect description.

It should now be clear why materialists and most humanists will reject these 5 rights and systematically try to force all free thinking minds to live without these 5 rights.

Ask yourself how many of these rights are you actively claiming and using when you search for moral answers... 

God is the absolute source of righteousness in Jesus Christ and the only way to achieve any true freedom from the fight for survival that ultimately leads us into true universal symbiosis.  Christianity is distinguished from any other religion exactly because of Christ's godly and redemptive intervention in human affairs, and by doing that bringing back a relationship with God's complete moral intentions for us.

I am growing up in a global society that has again given up on righteousness in favour of a struggle for survival, that is now clear to me, to be completely incapable of achieving the rights listed in 1 to 5. To put it differently... Beyond good and evil there are no righteousness any more, just a mindless struggle to survive and no freedom at all.

But what does it even mean to be beyond good and evil or to survive without righteousness?


To give an example of the kind of symbiotic relationship that Christianity brings, I would like to focus on Christ's own words... "My kingdom is not of this world" (John 18:36).  This, in effect, places Christianity in the position to be the only known religion or ideology with the inherent dogma that can ensure the existence of free will and a secular state of being.  It is exactly this dogma that has pulled Christianity back from all its misgivings in the past and will do so until Christ's Kingdom finally comes.  Therefore I conclude that in any situation Christianity will be able to propose the required symbiotic situation to ensure true freedom and the rights listed above.  In some cases it might be necessary to isolate dogmatic- or fundamentally-parasitic ideologies until the ones that hold those "species" use their free will to enter into symbiotic relationships.


In these definitions below the term "species" must be taken to include "all unique structures that can have an effect", - it will be either parasitic or symbiotic.
*"fear of death"
Is used in the human conscious sense of "fear of death", and actually excludes unconscious or uncontrollable responses or reactions to danger etc..  It is any conscious and contemplated "fear of death".
Parasitism is a non-mutual symbiotic relationship between species, where one species, the parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, the host.
The relation between two different species of organisms that are interdependent; each gains benefits from the other
syn : symbiosis, mutualism
