Dutch Author Grotius Killed God to Save Mankind, Thereby Sealing Our Doom
current malaise, w/ Bidenesque government failure and an illiterate societal implosion is ultimately predicated upon a loss of religious foundation for moral order. It’s reminiscent of the 16th century brilliant intellectual Hugo Grotius’ canny removal of God from law to protect mankind from ongoing religious wars, which backfired. Instead, this innovation created a godless law, ultimately leading to tyranny. For one description of Marxism is humanistic nihilism. See Hugo Grotius’ secular and subjective concept of natural law:
The Dutch humanist Hugo Grotius (1583–1645) presented in his magnum opus De Iure Belli ac Pacis (1625) a comprehensive and unified theory of natural law on a secular rational basis. He declared that natural law is a separate discipline from divine law and other forms of volitional norms, and may in principle be exclusively identified by reason.
Modern US Democrats are so fixated with control they’ve jettisoned religion and rights
Likewise, modern US Democrats are so fixated with control they’ve jettisoned religion and rights, as expressed in the Founder’s Rule of Law, to absolutely control society. Eric Voegelin referred to this as Modernity without Restraint, a lawless expression of Political Religion, which Democrats now mindlessly worship. Liberals knew if God were removed from the minds of men there would be no support if constitutional rights were suddenly set aside.
Now consider how America’s loss of faith means we are becoming godless, with 30% of residents now religious unaffiliates. Christian identity has fallen to 63%, down from 75% just 10 years ago. And in 2022, belief in God was at 81%. Yet, from 1944 into the 1960s, 98% of Americans believed in God. Yet, after all the decades of public attacks against the faith, what if God is needed to help form values, convictions and plans for a prosperous and safe society?
So how can we pray and ask or expect GOD to help a nation that has turned against him.
