Why Mortal Humanity Does Not See: Cannot Recognize the Eternal Sovereign
Our esteemed fellow commentator DNM has presented variously compelling dissertations on quite an array of pertinent topics over the years on this posting site; as such, this observer had not the compunction to provide any input on the validity of those dissertations, until now.
To be sure, this site is not intended to be a platform for proselytizing and while this observer has made his beliefs known, the choice of belief is on the reader/hearer and not this observer's to impose. That being said, DNM has prompted a thought of response that herein before was not immediately contemplated, but in the intrigue of his commentary, it could not be restrained.
It is with a certainty of this observer's response, however, that it could not have been entertained except that by some ethereal (no books dropping from the sky) influences, he has invoked one of the mysteries of the Hebrew Holy Writ and by an independent philosophical assertion, made his own observation to it in a way that cannot attributed to mere mortal thinking. Religion is a mortal human replacement of spiritual concepts that humanity is not able to attain, let alone be participants in processing a potential relationship with a power higher than mere mortality will ever afford, not even in any polytheistic practices. Nimrod found this out.
We speak of Nimrod, since his being a descendant of the man who survived the catastrophe many cultures centuries (thousands of years) ago wrote about in stele and other medium, he knew of the flood that scars of mountains of mud tell us about today; and yet, he did not choose to believe the narrative of that calamitous time and decided to serve his own version of deity. This we see, if we choose to believe the written narrative deciphered from those times until today, is the basis of modern philosophical interpretations of things humanity cannot see in this mortal frame. Nimrod, like his modern descendants all around us today, chose to rebel.
Modern followers of this philosophical congregation are plentiful and abound in all sectors of modern (and some not so modern) societies around the world. The 'Book' that did not fall from the sky' speaks to these issues, especially so in cloaked terms so that the mystical aspects cannot be discerned from mere mortal speculations, but a greater understanding and appreciation of its source is required to gain a greater wisdom of why the world is in such freefall and its bent towards a calamitous end appears inevitable. Think it not so? Think of how long it would take to release a nuclear response from any (ANY) possessor of nuclear arms if the perceived threat is deemed to be so overwhelming to as to provoke such a response. It can be calculated in minutes without so much of a warning. If the entity that has that kind of potential does not have any greater moral sense than selfish ambitious designs like Nimrod, and does not recognize the restraint that is to be had in recognizing a greater Eternal Sovereign above the mortal realm, how long will that take?
Unknowingly, Nimrod can be pointed to for the mystery of the religion called Babylon, that in his denial of giving obeisance to the Eternal Sovereign, becomes the servant of reckless mortal humanity and the devolution of the human species into the animal instincts the study of anthropology provides as a warning of the devastation lawless mankind is heading to.
Now, as has been pointed to earlier, even in spite of uncounted numerous attempts to disqualify the Hebrew Holy Writ as something that 'fell from the sky', it does provide the compelling alternative of how to perceive, then understand, how to escape the trappings of directionless humanity and the ever so easy issue of falling into a trap of unbelief and ultimate judgment. Modern philosophically humanistic entrenched teachings of what to believe and what not to believe, point to the basic principle of human existence; that of choice. The Hebrew Holy Writ gives that choice; all other belief/unbelieving systems try to influence you to unbelief or make that choice for you. Believe; and the Hebrew Holy Writ rewards that choice though the sacrifice of the Hebrew Savior. In the alternative, refuse to believe, taking the Nimrod approach in rebellion, then the choice, and the destiny in unbelief, is already made.
