Man As God

Humanizing humanity again will not be an easy task after this long orgy of divinity.
 
 
Nicolás Gómez Dávila

We live in an age where it has never been more true that mankind believes themselves to be God determining good from evil. This is so much so that we are now living in the midst of the attempt of man to play God as seen in the fact that man as God is attempting to re-create himself (sometimes called Transhumanism). I am convinced that behind this whole synthetic man-created Deep State virus and vaccine looms an attempt to recreate man according to some Utopian vision.

Because of this godlike attempt at Transhumanism, the human soul has become like treatment-resistant bacteria to the gospel which is the antibiotic. The pagan was more easily receptive to the gospel than modern man. The pagan had the good fortune of living in utter fear of his gods and so when the news came that the Christian God was a greater terror than even his gods it was comparatively easier to believe when accompanied by the good news that was a delight to believe. This good news was that this great Holy and angry looming Deity had satisfied Himself by providing Himself in the 2nd person incarnate thus holding out relief to those who would sue for peace and be reconciled.

 
Imagine the good news to be able to rest in the fact that the God-Man had propitiated the Father so that there was no longer terror from the Heavens but only the benevolent intent of a sovereign deity. As it stands now we are in the position have having to do a pre-evangelism that includes teaching men that;

1.) There is a God
2.) Man is not God
3.) This God who is, is angry at sin and will not pass over the guilty
4.) Transhumanism is just one sin that God is angry at
5.) The proper response to this kind of God is to utterly & cravenly fear Him.

Only once this pre-evangelism table is set can the good news be heralded of how God has reconciled Himself to fallen man through Jesus Christ. If this pre-evangelism is not done what God are men being reconciled to?

 
Today the fear of God has been replaced by the torpidity of Prozac. There is no fear of God before the eyes of man who owns himself as divine.

I am a Pastor of a small Church in Mid-Michigan who delights in my family, my congregation and my calling. I am postmillennial in my eschatology. Paedo-Calvinist Covenantal in my Christianity Reformed in my Soteriology Presuppositional in my apologetics Familialist in my family theology Agrarian in my regional community social order belief Christianity creates culture and so Christendom in my national social order belief Mythic-Poetic / Grammatical Historical in my Hermeneutic Pre-modern, Medieval, & Feudal before Enlightenment, modernity, & postmodern Reconstructionist / Theonomic in my Worldview One part paleo-conservative / one part micro Libertarian in my politics Systematic and Biblical theology need one another but Systematics has pride of place Some of my favorite authors, Augustine, Turretin, Calvin, Tolkien, Chesterton, Nock, Tozer, Dabney, Bavinck, Wodehouse, Rushdoony, Bahnsen, Schaeffer, C.

It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture. Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.
