Social Orders and the Divine

All social orders presuppose some kind of divine. From there a Priestly class of some sort exists that is charged with interpreting the divine, a Political class that legislates into law the divine, a military class that protects the divine, an artist class which incarnates the divine, an educator class that teaches the divine to the upcoming generation, and then the working class which lives out the divine in their families, workplaces, and living.

For example in our humanist culture that which is presupposed as divine is man. That Priestly class which interprets that divine is typically today found among the Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Counselors and all wannabees of that variety. The political class rests in Washington and the State capitals who believe they are God walking on the earth. The military class of global humanism is the US Military which demonstrates its protection of the divine by the welcoming of the pervert and the tranny into the officer class of the US Military, the artist class is seen all around us in the ugliness and slovenliness in which we live, move and have our being.  The educator class exist in our school from Kindergarten to the University level. And our working class reflects this humanism to its very core.

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.

  1. Didn’t fact check this, but read that 6 of 8 Ivy league school’s presidents were women(prior to the firing of Penn’s pres).
    If so, why can’t my pastor use this as a teaching topic on the wonder of God in creating such awesome women, some of whom I assume are also mothers? I know they think the Bible only restricts women from being head pastors and nothing else. Seems like a good teaching moment wasted.
    And why not take it a step further? Since working women outside of the home are biblically awesome, why not chide those stay-at-home Moms for not adding something to the offerings by getting a job? How hard can mothering be if these women, who didn’t need the money, could be career educated elites and still be mothers.
