The View From 1776

President Obama’s Foreign Policy “Change”

So far it appears that the President’s stance toward Israel will be a repetition of the same old, failed policies of the past.

  1. Consider:
    The missing element in every human 'solution' is
    an accurate definition of the creature.

    The way we define 'human' determines our view of self,
    others, relationships, institutions, life, and future. Many
    problems in human experience are the result of false
    and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
    in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

    Humanism makes man his own standard of measure.
    However, as with all measuring systems, a standard
    must be greater than the value measured. Based on
    preponderant ignorance and an egocentric carnal
    nature, humanism demotes reason to the simpleton
    task of excuse-making in behalf of the rule of appe-
    tites, desires, feelings, emotions, - and glands.

    Because man, hobbled in an ego-centric predicament,
    cannot invent criteria greater than himself, the humanist
    lacks a predictive capability. Thus, his man-made criteria
    rises no higher than eyebrows - and too often, no higher
    than pubic hair! Without instinct or transcendent criteria,
    humanism cannot evaluate options with foresight and
    vision for progression and survival. Lacking foresight,
    man is blind to potential consequence and is unwittingly
    committed to mediocrity, collectivism, averages, and re-
    gression - and worse. Humanism is an unworthy worship.

    Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
    nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
    Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
    characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
    foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
    spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
    ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
    universe. selah

    That human institution which is structured on the
    principle, "...all men are endowed by their Creator with
    ...Liberty...," is a system with its roots in the natural
    Order of the universe. The opponents of such a system are
    necessarily engaged in a losing contest with nature and
    nature's God. Biblical principles are still today the
    foundation under Western Civilization and the American
    way of life. To the advent of a new season we commend the
    present generation and the "multitudes in the valley of
    decision."

    Let us proclaim it. Behold!
    The Season of Generation-Choicemaker Joel 3:14 KJV

    Got Criteria? See Psalm 119:1-176 After all; No one is smarter than their criteria. jfb
