DECISION MAKING IN A REAL WORLD



WHY WE NEED TWO VIEWPOINTS

Gen. 3:17
Eve should have gotten another viewpoint, or witness, before she decided to do what the serpent wanted her to do. Instead, she decided to trust the serpent instead of asking God what she should do. The result is that she embraced a false account of what God had actually tole her and Adam they could and could not do.
In our decisions we always need to get more than one opinion. Jesus called this two witnesses. In the Declaration of Independence they called it the laws of nature and the laws of Nature's God. Secularism has significantly removed the laws of Nature's God from our decision-making in America, and left us only with the laws of nature. This leaves us with a very lopsided view of reality. This is not the American way.

EVEN GOD RESTS

The God of the Bible is not only a hard-working God but also one who cares deeply for  His creations. He set the example for us by creating the universe and all that it contains in six days and then rested on the seventh.
These teachings show us that there is literal time of seven days and nights as well as teaching us that we are to be fruitful, multiplying, filling, ruling, and subduing all that He has given us as well as taking the time for rest.
EVEN GOD RESTS
Gen. 2: 1-2
Ex.20:8
THE BIBLE PROJECT BELOW TALKS ABOUT THE SABBATH AND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SABBATH AND THE LORD'S DAY.

WHAT HAPPENED AT HARVARD AND AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES

What happened to the University
The Harvard logo represents how secularism has taken over American Universities and therefore, the American mind.
The Original Logo

The original logo shows that truth was what the University was seeking, not just secular truth but “Truth for Christ and the Church.” In the original logo, veritas (truth) is unified in Christ.  The Truth (Christ) is revealed through the three books displayed on the logo: Creation, Reason, and Revelation.  
The bottom book, which is pointed down and open to man, represents the Bible, God's Words, theology which guides the University to truly true truth.
The Logo shows that the University is bringing Christ into all parts of knowledge  which Harvard University viewed as "Education".  The Bible and its theology brought together the different parts of learning and knowledge because it revealed Christ as “The Unifier”.  "The Truth" is what a Harvard Education student was seeking. Thus in a Harvard University, education (knowledge) was unified.

The shift

After the American Revolution through the nineteen hundreds, there was a major shift in thinking at Harvard, and therefore a major shift in the school's beliefs.  They shifted their thinking from allowElites
e person of God being the final authority to chance being final authority, and change being the controlling principle.
This shift meant that now things from nature became all man could know, therefore truth did not come from the Creator of nature but from created things.
The Cosmos became a uniformity of cause and effect in a closed system; the open system of God and His knowledge were gone. God became philosophically excluded from the educational teaching at Harvard.  There was still a seminary and chapel at Harvard but these places did not produce knowledge; they only produced inspiration and feelings.  Thus HARVARD excluded God from their student’s thinking.
This shift meant that HARVARD needed a new logo that reflected this change from God's Truth and Christ's Sovereignty, to chance and changing truth as the new King. Their thinking moved from an unchanging God who gave man certainty, to chance and constant change that molded man with the result of constant uncertainty.

Because of this shift in philosophy, Harvard returned to the Old World beliefs of the Greeks and the Greek God's, and borrowed the wreath of Zeus.
The Closing of The Mind

They surrounded the world of ideas with the Greek wreath and thus they closed the university system to God's Revelation. Next, the books were changed so there was no open book to man. They closed God's book and made truth come only from and through nature, so Truth was no longer personal but the great cosmic machine of the cosmos.  This New Science (as it was called), closed the education of the mind and left only the rule and thinking of HARVARD.  

Man Returns To Elites

The word HARVARD is now large and the most prominent, because only the elite from Harvard reveal the truths of this new science of thought and education; the truth of their educational system is always evolving and changing.

Multiculturalism Is Born

It has become the truth for now, the truth for you, the truth for me, the truth for Harvard.  They are no longer seeking Truly True Truth but have closed their mind to God and have therefore become multicultural. Natural Laws take over and replace an Infinite personal God's Law with a cosmic machine that is always changing. The HARVARD man is now the revelation of this changing truth and believe they have become the ultimate elite who choose what the rest of us us should believe.

Man Can Save Himself

As a result of the new Harvard thinking, man without God becomes his own saviour. Man is forever learning but never comes to a knowledge of the truth.

WHY DID GOD MAKE MANKIND?

After God made all the stuff and put it together, He made the pinnacle of His creation, mankind, to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and to rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.
And after all His hard work, God said it was all very good.

TRANSGENDERISM FOLLOWING JOHN LENNON IN THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION

John Lennon did the song Imagine which was a theme song of the sexual Revolution that you can imagine anything you want.
Hugh Hefner built on that Revolution with the sexual lusts of the flesh of Playboy magazine, that open the gate for all the other pornography and sexual issues in our culture.
Since there is only male and female this whole construct of transgenderism is an imaginary reality, like all of secularism.
John MacArthur's explains it to his young friend very well in this video.

SEEK GOD FIRST, HE WILL GIVE YOU STUFF TOO

This is a great audio about how God has supplied our need for cars, through answered prayer, over the last almost 50 years.

Matthew 6 describes how we are to depend on God for not only the big stuff but the daily necessities of living (food, clothing, shelter). When we seek Him first instead of the stuff we need to live, He will provide all that we need to live a simple, abundant life.
