About “Babies and the Origin of Good and Evil”

This article and reading it brought to mind that there are two sides to that equation.

My first reaction was that I could have told them that if they read Romans, they would find that God wrote his laws into peoples’ hearts, whether or not they had ever heard of the laws of Moses, or the gospel of Jesus Christ:

Romans 2:14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

But then comes the other side of that equation:

Proverbs 22:15 ¶Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

Even Benjamin Spock who damaged my generation with his book that told our parents’ generation that a child never needed corporal punishment, repented later in life and admitted that some toddlers need at least an occasional swat.

That law of Romans 2:15 is the basis for understanding there is a natural law. It is the legitimacy for the birthright of “unalienable rights” that is explicit in the United States Declaration of Independence.

The intuitive idea that there is such a thing is shared by all mankind, and is the premise for the idea that one nation can call another to account for violations of “human rights” or “civil rights”. In the reality of the United Nations political order, though, it exposes that attempt at new feudalism.

Among other things, declarations of human rights for people, for children, always have a hidden catch-phrase in some form or another. The Chinese leader threw it back at Bill Clinton, in fact, almost verbatim from one of those “governance” documents: “….except where restricted by law…”

One of the most basic precepts in applying the idea of “natural rights” which derives from “natural law” to governing philosophies is “…That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” Thinking about it, this is a direct application of the Golden Rule:

Matthew 7:12 ¶Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

But that’s also why “moral philosophies” can be so dangerous, also, if they are just simply “made up” as one goes along, or in the hands of a perverted heart. It is a salve to cover the sin. Thus the new shadowy plutocrats pushing the UN dictatorship structure consider the masses as asses that need to be controlled and handled for their own good, the same justification always used for ruthless rulers and totalitarians. They promote destructive practices under the guise of “rights”: prenatal infanticide, sodomy, the murder of the old and infirm, provoking the natural covetous condition of men to get the poor to rush to slavery by telling them they will rob the rich for them.

But God is watching and will shorten the days of judgment for the elects’ sake, which are those who have accepted the truth and the love of God and seek to do his will and help their fellow man…
