The West is dead, and God has killed it

Sexual degeneracy follows necessarily from individualism because the mythos of individualism requires an ethos of mutual tolerance to exist. Morality, as a concept, is restricted to relationships between people. In the absence of God there is no transcendent moral law, and in the absence of other people there is no civic duty or social contract (at best, a man on an island judge how best to treat himself, but even this implies a relationship with himself). Without any moral authority to redirect the excesses of the human libido, the raw id is unleashed. Moral permissiveness returns a society to its natural baseline more assuredly than an atomic bomb.

Without God, there is no Christendom, and without Christendom there is no West. There are only the European peoples and the Greco-Roman legacy, and I’m not hopeful for the latter when spell-check recognizes neither “Greco-Roman” nor “contrapositive”. Individualism is autism without God, and the American culture’s prescription to “pulling yourself up by the bootstraps”, a call to self-creation (i.e. the self-made man), is literal Luciferianism.

Here’s a radical alternative to American exceptionalism: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

During our Discord discussion this weekend, I was pressing someone on his reason for emotional divestment from the church, and he said it was because “fuck the church”. Upon probing, he said he didn’t mean God’s church but modern churches with tares among the wheat. I challenged him to contact me when he’d purity-spiraled his way to a church containing no one but believers with sound doctrine, but not to look for models in the New Testament because the early churches were deeply flawed. I have been shocked to learn that even praying for the brethren is too much to ask from some other people.

Repent in sackcloth and ashes, wretches! Maybe, like the city of Ninevah, God will hear us. Maybe he will not, and our lampstand has been removed forever. But I can assure you with perfect clarity, not even one of you who refuses the call to prayer and fasting is destined for the kingdom of heaven.

    @glosoli

    Do you mean to say, “I love Jesus, and I hate that you all ignore His words and His laws”?

    Your choice of words matters, in terms of clear communication. It does not actually matter to me, personally. I hope you will be encouraged by my response to you below.

    Churchians are ok with gay marriage. Churchians are ok with abortion. But as for the slaughter of adults, look at the history of Catholic and Orthodox repression; read up Infogalactic on the “Subbotniks” in Russia. The Inquisition and Counter-Reformation. Those were all Churchian (false Christian) slaughters of people who were trying to follow the Word.

  3. Aeoli Pera says:

    There’s some truth in your accusation about abortion, although it unfairly blames a subset for the sins of the set, but the other accusations are an unreasonable expansion of the definition of “churchian”. So your original assertion was incorrect.

  4. glosoli says:

    If they want you to co-lead teaching scripture with a woman, it’s a good bet they are intentionally deceiving you. Although you know it’s BS too, so it’s not really deception.
    I don’t know what to call it, except totally wrong.

    ‘I love Jesus, and I hate that the world ignore His words and His laws.’

    Thank you for your words of encouragement.

  6. glosoli says:

    It’s a very sound definition of people who were Churchian (fake Christians).

    Churchians deciding what is and isn’t Churchian is very…Churchian, wouldn’t you say?

    How about: if it ain’t in the bible, it’s Churchian, we can all agree on that one I would hope.
