After Navy, went to college on G.I. Bill. My sociology professor(just back from the peace corp. in India) was expounding a lot of nonsense that didn’t line up with the truth that I know as one of God’s true sons. As one of the older kids in my classes back then(early 1970’s) I always challenged my professors when I thought they were off base. I asked him what in the world he was talking about ? He said it is called the sociological perspective which says that people are neither good or bad, but that they become bad because of the disadvantages that they are born into and the evil that they are confronted with as they go through their life. In other words the evil people of the world would put aside their evil and shape up if we would just give them the things that they try to acquire through criminal means. Some socialists and communists evidently believe this. Others just want unrestrained power over other people.
It’s been said the greatest lie the devil ever convinced people of is that he doesn’t exist. Every time politicians and many preachers say, “well, you know, we’re all God’s children” they are furthering that lie. Yes, God created everything including Lucifer(the devil), and when He created him He gave him some powers of creation. He was created above all of the other angels, and was second to God only in greatness and power. But that wasn’t enough for him, he wanted to be greater that God, and so he fell from power and has been carrying on a spiritual warfare between his seed and God’s seed ever since.
Jesus said that God planted the children of the Kingdom of Heaven down here and His enemy, the devil, planted the children of the wicked one down here. (reference the gospel of Matthew chapter 13 verses 37 through 39), And just for clarification, both were planted among every nation, kindred(race), and tongue, and are intermingled even in same families.
That’s why the Lord said that any man who loves mother, or father, or son, or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
After you have digested this I’ll give you more understanding
In the work I did in Naval Intelligence in the 1960’s information was given to us on a need-to-know basis, in God’s kingdom information and understanding is given on an ability to receive basis.
