Israel vs. Kant - Following the True Paradigm - Israel is Not Immune - But Will Recover

Reader comment on item: Immanuel Kant vs. Israel

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Aug 17, 2010 at 19:33

While there may be other reasons why we may look at the way the West is under an ad hoc process of castigation by all that seek an alternative means to govern on a global scale, Israel is, indeed, a catalyst for just such things to be observed and apprehended. It is, after all, Israel's destiny to be the instrument by which this worldly realm is brought to justice for the inhumanities perpetrated over the centuries.

The idea of a one-world government is as age old as the flood that swept across the ancient earth thousands of years ago, a process thwarted then by a Supreme Intelligence Who, then as now, is completely into the details of human history, having decided to have the affairs of mankind threaded through the history and descendents of a travelling man of Ur, Abraham. I need not recount the process; read the Torah and that should be sufficient to lay the foundation.

But what of the future that seems to want to follow the paradigm of Kant? Even that is addressed in the destiny and legacy of the nation-state of Israel, something that Avraham Burg, and so many others seem willing to ignore. Writing about a scenario of a universal state is also Biblical, with tragic results of incalculable proportions. And Israel is in the center of it. The paradigm disease is the deception that a well-intentioned, well planned (that is what Woodrow Wilson – and Adolf Hitler, attempted last century) movement away from nation-states to the one world order is what this world needs. Heute Europa, morgen die weldt. I would not claim to be sure on this, but it would not surprise this reader that the works of Kant could have been in the library of the Nationalist Socialist headquarters.

The progressive mentality is indeed immersed in the philosophical underpinnings of those that believe that human affairs are more fully managed independent of the ethnic restrictions found in the nation-state paradigm. One can even make an evolutionist's incorrect assertion from the mentality of the new paradigm that survival of the fittest can only be achieved by eliminating those aspects of ethnic disparities considered inconsistent with the new world order.

In contrast, and in complete contradiction to the idea that the new paradigm has any chance beyond the that part of humanity that seems willing to enact a program that desires for some implementation of a new world order, even willing to embrace the various concepts (both religious and philosophical) that peripherally support such a thing, the very thing that places Israel in the center of the storm of its controversy is a recognition that another paradigm is actually running in the background, one that cannot be shaken from the very beginning of time. It is the WORD of the LORD.

Now I can see the roll of the eyes, the disdain, and outright contempt of the very idea that someone still thinks the world is still under the omnipresent, omnipotent, and supernatural supervision of the Almighty God of Israel. Well, the timing is such that the new paradigm is going to be allowed to run its course, to the everlasting tragedy of a deceived humanity. And Israel is going to be at the center of it. So a piece of counsel: "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap."

Now from the time of Kant, and actually even before, the process of humanity has been following the prescribed course to the events we see happening today. As the adherents of the WORD of the LORD tried to be true to the Gospel, so too, the world tried just as hard to kill it, obfuscate it, diffuse it (even from within seemingly religious Christianesque quarters-we see the apostasy of the replacement theological position of mainstream Christianity in rampant form today), and even the bastion of the modern Christian society of America, eliminate it. Controversially, the replacement theological positioning of Islam sides with the idea of a one world order with sharia law as its base form of government. (And some, like the adherents of Islam in the Taliban would try to stop it, as we have seen from the deaths of so many, like the six killed in Afghanistan).

We read in the Revelation of the culmination of such things, and the completion prescribed in the Tanach and fulfilled in the New Covenant. Further, it is shown there how the true paradigm is in full implementation; and have to wonder why: why did men who could have found the truth decided instead to follow another process and paradigm? The answer, even as is the question, is rhetorical. The answer requires belief in the truth; and that, sadly, is lacking on a scale that is now apparently irrecoverable. The next part is now upon us; this is very likely THE generation.
