Not content with charting a course for a new destination, “progressives” seem intent on tearing up the map whilst simultaneously drilling holes below the water line – even the map & the boat are considered oppressive and restrictive. No absolutes. No authority. (“At that time there was no king in Israel. People did whatever they felt like doing.”). Complete freedom – as long as you’re not one of the people trying to conserve the map and repair the boat!
This article, “Progressivism’s March Toward God’s Judgment“, is a easily readable tour-de-force through the long history of “progressivism” to its ultimate nihilistic conclusion. It helps give a fuller perspective on the path of self-harming, self-destruction much of the Western world is embarking on. It’s actually as old as the Garden of Eden and it’s as doomed to failure for the same reason (“The serpent told the Woman, “You won’t die. God knows that the moment you eat from that tree, you’ll see what’s really going on. You’ll be just like God”) . People can rail against God’s created order – family, marriage, sex, biology, nations, truth, justice – as much as they wish, but ultimately it’s as futile as railing against the laws of physics. “Because we live in a God-rigged universe, the new Gnostics will not succeed any more than Eve and Adam did, though their rebellion can wreak havoc in the process.”
