Conservatism and Liberalism: Sustaining Life November 18, 2020
In my last article, Reasoning: Relating and Serving Humanity and God, I began to define the characteristics of liberals and conservatives. It basically said that a conservative tends to be a warrior of God and ideals while liberals tend to serve God by serving life. It should go without saying that these characteristics of life (lives) serve each other to preserve and sustain life and this has been recorded in our history and continues to manifest itself perhaps more than ever. I will say again that I believe we are at a reckoning point in our evolution and the evolution of God’s Kingdom where these two characteristics must meld and mend differences about the understanding of how God intends us to conduct our lives. One thing is for sure, and that is we will not prosper if we do not agree that everyone is equal under the Laws of God that we have agreed upon and has been revealed by God through prophets. The fact that we serve each other by Divine design regardless of our awareness should indicate that we are more prosperous by including both conservative and liberal ideals in our Laws. As I have written, God’s Kingdom will come, it is ordained, but it will come as you choose, so to speak. I put this under the umbrella of God’s Creation, Life, whereby all Life and Cycles of Life coexist and in fact prosper or come into God’s Kingdom, the Glory of God, only when all are attended or served which is the responsibility of Humanity. It is my opinion, that we are basically conservative with life and the values of God but liberal with life’s expression and it’s care. The elephants and donkeys of our politics becoming the lion and lamb of the Bible, which in my opinion, is divinely inspired and heavily laden with divine intervention.
It is also my opinion that humanity has consistently chosen throughout our history the right path at the right time. I hope this continues. Conservatives should allow more implementation of liberal practices in our society at the government level. Our history clearly shows that it has been prosperous, but we have swayed to and fro, often for lack of money and the need for security. As we round the corner of battle against evil, inequality, and injustice, we should live and care for all life more fully in our society(s). Conservatives should be proud of the work they do and have done for Life along with our Churches but as soldiers do must now allow Life to prosper while keeping vigilant. Conservatives should remain true to their characteristics or Spirit but not allow issues of Law impede the progress of the United States of America and Humanity towards God’s Kingdom.
As I have written, I believe there is in fact an entity of some organization which continues to impede Life and prosperity in the World with conflict (war), misinformation, and disinformation in the name of God while they blanket themselves in our or God’s good works. My general term or name for them is White Supremacists but they are not all white nor Christian. But, I believe their origins began there and in the midst of and surrounding the Life of Jesus Christ given to us by God and the battle over Laws of God and Humanity. They battle for something that can not be attained and sustainably exist on Earth, control by evil, and they destroy the very things that provide for even them and look and sound like fools. But it is a battle Humanity must war for and that is the freedom and ability to live good and prosperous lives which reflects the Spirits and Souls of God more fully in the World where Humanity is, will be, and has been an active participant.
All the while, Liberals have gone to school and managed to become the leaders of our industries and schools while Conservatives have had to bicker and pander or secure our Religion(s) and creed(s) to God. The days and methods of Conservatives writing everything off to the government on their tax forms and requiring society to foot the bill are out dated, often corrupt, and no longer efficiently serve a need. They are coming to a close as more comprehensive and helpful tax laws are (will be) implemented. Conservatives and Churches should embrace this moment or movement as aid to their calling of fighting for and serving the needy at a time when it is needed more than ever as a result of this battle for Control in our society(s) and specifically in our government of America. Increased Poverty is often the result of war and this should be addressed and served by conservatives and liberals, by all. As I have written, poverty is an indication of not fully implementing all of God’s Laws. Do not now waste your time on pettiness or issues that do not serve our most important needs of the time, choose the Greater Good.
Do not forget that Jesus united many faiths and/or religions in his region of the World under Christianity by accepting their faith while teaching His Ways and representing or speaking for God. His Ways and Teachings were very similar to prophets before Him in different regions of the World. He is the originator of our greatest universal church, the Catholic Church, and many theologies or churches of different regions of the World have accepted him as a prophet and include his teachings in their teachings. Even though Jesus was a Jew the Jewish faith remains largely intact accepting Jesus as a prophet and including His teachings. We should accept and fight for all faiths as much as we do the Jewish faith. Christians should be teaching the universal lessons of the World’s prophets and their faiths and not choking themselves on conversion and exclusivity to Heaven. There is, in my opinion, much work left to be done with the gift of Jesus and it should be so, but it is tangled in these perverse and singular ideologies. Christianity can have a Second Coming of Jesus, so to speak, by way of becoming more inclusive of and working with all faiths of the World as Jesus did in his region, not necessarily by the return of Jesus. The saviors of the World are us, Humanity, and it is the teachings of prophets of the World gifted by God that we must follow. Moreover, I don’t think Jesus would wish to return and be nailed to a cross again after all this time and not yet having a more secure and prosperous World. What would Jesus teach us this time?
