GLOBALISATION IS A DANGEROUS MYTH
as JESUS TEACHES US IN Luke 14:31-32
Jesus teaches to LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR IS
THE SECOND COMMANDMENT
God created us in Paradise and declared us free to enjoy a glorious life where sin, sicknesses, rivalry, wars and death were unknown. However, we were to merit heaven. So God gave us only ONE commandment: to adore ONLY God, and He wrapped His commandment around “the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” We were free to eat all the fruits in Paradise, but not to eat from that tree! To eat from the forbidden tree we were surely doomed to die.(Genesis 2:8-17) We accepted to dialogue with satan and under his guidance we found God guilty of lying to us, satan was telling us the truth.
We wanted to free us from God´s Sovereignty over us in the very first moment of our existence and we seized the very first opportunity to declare war on God Himself. Disobeying God was our very grave sin. God has been infinitely insulted.
The original sin was committed.
We were kicked out of our homeland where we were to live in God´s friendship and in harmony with our brothers and sisters until we were called to heaven. We became refugees in a foreign land hostile to our presence. Loaded with the original sin with all its devastating consequences like inclinations to evil and devastated by concupiscence and doomed to sicknesses, sufferings and death far from our homeland, we were sentenced to live as refugees in a foreign land.
Man has become our greatest enemy. We became divided, torn apart. We are harassed by our brothers and sisters, we are robed of our farms, our stocks. Our families are destroyed; our sons and daughters are being defrauded, molested, kidnapped, mutilated, murdered. We need a police force constantly on alert to protect us from our neighbors. We are condemned as refugees to live and die in a foreign land and this until the end of time.
God our compassionate heavenly Father saw our lamentable state of life and decided to intervene. In spite of our pride to insult Him, our good God remained faithful to His Fatherhood and sent us His Son to live with us.
JESUS OUR REDEEMER
TRUE I WAS BORN GUILTY, A SINNER,
Psalm 51: 7
Jesus, our Redeemer, comes to us with a very special mandate from God His Father. He will not redeem our fallen human nature. Our miserable state of life will not change with our Redeemer! We will remain divided with inclinations to evil, driven by a forceful concupiscence and satan will always try to trip us into freeing ourselves from God. However our aspiration to the Infinite will dominate our search for God.
JESUS DIVINE MANDATE IS TO REDEEM
EACH HUMAN PERSON
Saint Paul, in his letter to the Philippians chapter 2, verse 12, reveals to us that each person must work at his(her) own salvation. However, no one can save oneself! Salvation is the work of God only. And this is the unique goal of the Redeemer.
Jesus the Redeemer came to us from heaven with his means of salvation. Each person must learn how Jesus wants to save us. However, each person remains free to refuse his means of salvation. To go to heaven according to my own way is a vicious act of pride and sheer refusal of Jesus’ kind help.
The catholic bishops worldwide deny the original sin to Pope Benedict XVI even though they never tried to explain the origin of evil in each human heart. The Pope in his kindness begged the bishops to accept this dogma of faith; however the bishops refused Pope Benedict XVI kind invitation. The bishops´ attitude against the original sin comes from the fact that they never studied the teachings of the Catholic Church on the original sin in their major seminary. Faced with liberal and brutal professors who taught them atheist psychology especially Maslow, these seminarians advance to the ordination unprepared to teach why God sent us Jesus.
GLOBALIZATION IS A DANGEROUS MYTH TO AVOID
We remain divided as ever in homes, cities, states, countries. Jesus’ invitation to unite us is refused. Here Jesus teaches us why globalization is a sheer dangerous myth. There have been many Hitlers in the past and we have to deal with ours right now. If Sadam Hussein had been prepared for war with an atomic arsenal, president Bush would not have invaded Iraq and the Middle East would be so much better now. If South Korea was prepared for war, the north would not think of invading.
Thus, Jesus teaches us to be prepared to face the invader at anytime. In Luke 14:31-32, Jesus gives us a king who looks at his armies to find out if he can crush the invader and finds out too late he cannot. President Obama has put the American people in a great peril when facing the enemy; he depleted his preparedness to go to war and now was faced to negotiate with brutal merciless invaders. He took billions of dollars from the American tax payers to satisfy Iran a brutal and merciless enemy, however to no avail. Iran more than ever is determined to invade. The original sin consumes the Ayatollah like any uncontrolled heart.
The only way to deal with an invader is a show of force!
President Obama leads us to understand he has no knowledge of the original sin or dismissed it, like the Catholic bishops do, which gave him a false understanding of globalization. May God bless President Trump who sees globalization as a terrifying myth and will organize the American people according to the old adage: si vis pacem para bellum! IF YOU WANT PEACE PREPARE FOR WAR .
May our prayers accompany our President Trump in his difficult task to lead us into the right path of peace and prosperity.
