Understanding the Liberal Mind
By Jim Wilhelmsen
We know better for you
In view of the recent forced policies of health care put upon a population that has expressed it’s disapproval to them, it makes one wonder what are they thinking?
Many can put this act under the blanket label of a conspiracy and let it go at that and it just might be. However to any thinking person you still have to wonder how did the individuals get sold into this action. Some of these legislative leaders are even voting against the peoples desires knowing that it is political suicide. Why? What higher ideal makes them act so contrary to a politicians natural sense of self preservation?
I am not going to pretend to be a Psychologists but I do not think the answer has to be so complex to be able to understand the mind of a liberal. Like anything confronted in this life within this present world system, I believe the Bible has an answer that can be explained in very simple terms.
Liberals recently like to call themselves “progressive thinkers”. In this statement, they imply that they are willing to think outside of the box and explore many different and new ideas and ways to accomplish greater things. This also implies that those who do not want to venture outside of their box and cling to tradition and religious beliefs are the opposite of themselves or, non-progressive thinkers.
Getting to the Roots: Rejecting the Bible as God’s Word
The root core of anyone’s belief system is going to impact the way they implement action into their own lives as well others around them. So let’s look at the core of a liberal mindset.
Liberals are a mixture of people, Humanists, Socialists, Communists, Atheists and even some that call themselves Liberal Christians. What they have in common is their rejection of a belief in God and even with the professing liberal Christian, it is always the eroded belief that the Bible is not the inerrant Word of God but is subject to question with errors in it that have separated them from Biblical truths.
In all cases, the liberals have cut themselves off to considering what the Bible has to say. In this rejection of God’s Word, what they view as new possibilities with new ways are only rehashed failed attempts that are already revealed for the foolishness that they are. If they could or would consider the claims of God’s wisdom and rewards in his word they would see this contrast of God’s ways as opposed to man’s ways.
Most, unfortunately do not and will not consider the Bible and just repeat back to you that this is just your religious beliefs or interpretation of it. Rejecting without consideration, they view you as the simple minded superstitious backward person clinging to outdated fairy tales.
But who is the simple minded clinging to fairy tales. I think the Bible which they reject says it quite well in very simple terms that need no in depth interpretation.
The fool has said in his heart, there is no God. Psalms 14:1
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again, there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one can say, Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago, it was here before our time.” Ecclesiastes 1:9,10 NIV
There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” Proverbs 14:12 NIV
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9 NIV
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:6 NKV
Just from these five scriptures much can be understood. Nothing is outside of God’s knowledge. He sees everything as one event. In that sense it has already happened. He knows every decision man will make in contrast to his plan that has already been completed. Nothing to him is in a state of indecision with a questionable outcome, it has already been done as past history.
So in his book, the Bible he gives us the wisdom of choice and the outcomes of those decisions. In the Psalms and Proverbs are many gems of God’s wisdom. Many of the Biblical stories are history that reveals examples of these decisions and choices. Secular history also falls into this type of example setting. Both sources are something we should learn from.
The story behind the story WHY? = EVOLUTION
I am fascinated by history because it is the record of human decision making based on beliefs and mans response to situations confronted, good or bad.
Unfortunately, history is taught with who, when and where but barely touching on the why’s. In a world of political correctness the real issues are side stepped and only safe answers in general terms are provided if any at all. The why’s to history are the missing vital elements for wisdom to learn from our mistakes.
The story behind a history of forced government upon a people by the so called liberals are based on an important why. This key why, is a root belief in Evolution as opposed to Creation.
To the liberal mind, we are a random product of matter progressively assimilating itself into higher progressions of life forms all on it’s own. This idea excludes the belief of a personal creator. The package deal that there is no God also means that there is no enemy of God and mankind, Satan. With no Satan, there is no such thing as a fall of mankind or a “sin nature”. This leaves the Liberal ignorant of any spiritual dimension to life and vulnerable to eventual and ultimate failure. A belief system without a God, without any a plan, without a supernatural enemy that corrupts the best of man’s intentions leaves them to handle all matters for themselves.
The liberal’s thinking then is that mankind is basically good and evolving into something better. The enemy to that thought would be a religion who says man has a sin nature. The liberal sees mankind as a product of his environment. If mankind is ever going to “evolve socially”, the total environment must be controlled by someone. This someone is whatever liberal group decides what is best for mankind at that time. Karl Marx explained it as the 10 planks of a social order in Das Kapital. They must control the total environment to “condition” man into acceptance of this higher wisdom of community living or man made utopia.
This thinking explains the continual history of the Liberal variations that when in power, they must by their beliefs, force policies giving them total control of the complete human environment.
Being nothing more than a biological entity of random choice and natural selection, logic dictates that social Darwinism must also come into play. In this comes the Machiavellian thought that the, “ end justifies the means “. This allows for ideas of abortion as a social justice for the sake of the many. At the same time divorcing itself from any moral Biblical idea of the sentient life of an embryo. It is where the Georgia guide-stones openly justify the reduction of the human population for the sake of mankind’s future. It also allows tools to embellish, lie and cheat to accomplish the higher ultimate goals for mankind. Moral issues cannot even be conceived by the liberal mind as relevant in a world of constant change and evolution. In that thinking moral issues do not exist only human rights issues. Darwin, Nietzsche and Jung become the prophets to the liberal mindset. This mindset cannot even comprehend the things of God because they do not want to consider them. So much for open mindedness. (I thought that is what liberal meant?)
The liberal mind is one that opposes the things of God and when it is attempted to be mixed with true Christianity there are just too many irreconcilable differences to make this happen. Light cannot walk, comprehend or live with darkness.
The Bottom Line for the Liberal mind
This mindset contrast with Godly truth is also described in the Bible.
But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness to him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1Corinthians 2:14
The liberal mind or natural mind as the Bible puts it, has a hindering like an obstruction from knowing the truths in the Bible. That obstruction is the indwelling the lack of the Holy Spirit. To be in this place of obstruction is the actual definition of retardation.
As a minister it may be inappropriate to use a term now becoming popular to frustrated conservatives but in actuality, it is a scriptural one. The bottom line is that the Liberal mind is in great need for God’s love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ to be made new and this is a gospel truth…. but that still does not keep the Liberal Mind from being a scriptural definition as a…… LIBTARD! This term seemingly crude and rude is by a Biblical definition, the spiritual condition of the Liberal world view and mindset as God sees it. Something to think about and maybe ease your pain from living in a nation coming under this kind of control.
In Deuteronomy 28 the blessing and cursing of a nation accepting or rejecting God is outlined. One of the judgments on a nation that rejects God is the ability to discern right from wrong. Clearly we have lost this in our time in America and judgment is already upon us.
What should we do with the Liberal minded?
Anger and frustration with ungodly retaliation is not the answer. As humorous as libtard may be, even accurate to the situation, we need to pity those locked into this mindset. Truly they are to be pitied and as much as the Holy Spirit can arouse in you we should have compassion as one would have for a mentally disabled person. If a liberal mind does not change their ways, the end of their road is also made quite clear in the Bible. But with this compassion we need to meld this with a tempered righteous indignation.
The problem now is these disabled people think they run the country and all of us. God is still in control and they need to know it. Only proclaiming the truths in the Bible in a bold yet compassionate manner will this light pierce through the darkness. We are not going to change the course of prophetic events that are destined to happen, be but we may change a few hearts in the process of reacting in the right way.
Cheer up Jesus is coming soon!
