When I look around me at the way the world is going with its willful destruction of decency, the family, Christianity, reason and civilization by Western governments, when they see how the world is tumbling into chaos, debt, and violence, it is no wonder that many people have lost hope for the future.
Blaise Pascale talked about self deification and pantheism or total abandonment into sensuality and lust, both without God. Antinomianism – no laws – abandonment – narcissism – total accommodation. That is what we see around us in the world as people rebuild the Tower of Babel, giving up on God. He wrote:
“It is in vain, O men, that you seek within yourselves the cure of all your miseries. All your insight only leads you to the knowledge that it is not in yourselves that you will discover the true and the good. The philosophers promised them to you, and have not been able to keep their promise… Your principle maladies are pride, which cuts you off from God; sensuality, which binds you to the earth; and they have done nothing but foster at least one of these maladies.
If they have given you God for your object, it has only been to pander to your pride; they made you think that you were like Him and resembled Him by your nature. And those who have grasped the vanity of such a pretention have cast you down into the other abyss by making you believe that your nature was like that of the beasts of the field, and have led you to seek your good in lust, which is the lot of animals.”
There is an alternative to Godless, animalistic craving and selfishness. People can regain their true identity and purpose and enjoy the hope, joy, courage and inspiration that comes with knowing God. I personally fell away from God and was mired in Atheism, and believe me, I know the difference. On returning to my Heavenly Father, He received and embraced me, and blessed me like the Prodigal Son, and I weep for those who have lost their way or never found it. It is a simple choice with profound, everlasting consequences.
I encourage you to seek your Father God and return to Him. The joy and peace of mind is incomparable. You will understand and have hope for your future, and you will receive the assistance He promises all His followers. You are not reading this by accident. I believe it is a love letter from Him to you. You could start here.
“This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘Return to me, and I will return to you‘” Zechariah 1:3
