In the Gospel according to John verse 4:4 it says the following:
The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
Just like verses regarding “strangers” in the Bible this verse is used to forward many a unnatural agendas. This verse is used to argue that “the only thing that matters is love.” People in liberal protestant denominations make this argument regarding the sanctioning of gay marriage in their churches. But in Leviticus 20:13 it says
‘If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death.
Of course, then people will make the argument that Jesus changed all that “rules and regulations” stuff. But then we read in 1st Corinthians 6:9-11
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”
So what gives? If God is Love, then why can’t two men (or women) get married and bugger each other for the glory of the loving God? The reason is that God is also Order. God sets forth certain rules that we must abide by to make us better off and He does this out of love. These rules can be hard to live by, but they’re for our own good. People seem to disagree most with the rules regarding sex. But think about the disastrous effect the “sexual revolution” has had on Western society. The “sexual revolution” was supposed to lead more happiness but today people are more miserable than in times past.
This isn’t a matter of either/or, it’s both/and. Love and Order work in conjunction. This is the heart and brain. This is the mother and the father. This is the proper balance between the left and right sides of the brain. The esoteric teacher Mark Passio discusses this dynamic in his lectures on the sacred feminine and sacred masculine. If one examines the Bible one notices that the Old Testament was the book of Order (or Law) while the New Testament is the Book of Love.
What we see in much of modern Christianity is an imbalanced focus on love over order. For much of Christian history it was the other way around, but today love is the answer to everything. In a way, I would agree that “love is the answer” but only in conjunction with order. In fact, love without order might not be love at all.
A child brings home a sad, homeless puppy soaked to the bone from rain. You might keep it. But what if a child brings home 10 homeless puppies? Unless you’re a lonely 40 year old women, you wouldn’t keep 10 puppies (or kittens in that case) because this wouldn’t benefit anyone. What if you have a cat at home that gets attacked by these 10 puppies? I suppose the “all you need is love” crowd would argue that the cat should be punished for using its nails to defend itself? Bringing 10 puppies into the house is not love but a sign of mental illness at best.
Love not working in conjunction with order is not love just as order not working in conjunction with love is not order. A system based purely on the “letter of the law” will lead to chaos as well, as people rebel against the lack of compassion, understanding, and mercy. This balance of love and order corresponds with the roles of the Church and Monarchy in the middle Ages. The Monarchy was supposed to hold up the law and defend the people in return for labor. The Church had a social welfare role and was supposed to intervene when the lords became unjust or oppressive. The lord acted as the father while “Holy Mother Church” acted as the mother. Of course things didn’t always work out this way as many times the high offices of the Church would be manned by sons of lords making both Church and Monarchy on the same side. When this happens an opening occurs for a French Revolution type situation when the scum of the earth take over filling the void with promises of “liberty, equality, and fraternity.”
When you neglect order for too long the road back to order is usually very bumpy. When people live too much outside of the Truth (God’s law), the whole thing comes down. What the story of Sodom and Gomorrah teaches us is that disorder will not be tolerated forever. This is what we’re seeing today in the modern Western world. There’s an elite who push everything unnatural to human nature, from forced integration, to GMO foods, to “irregular family situations,” to siding with criminals over law enforcement, to degenerate media of all sorts. When Sodom and Gomorrah became too disorderly, God rained fire on it. Also recall that when the angels said to not look back; they meant it (as Lot’s wife found out). The farther things fall away from order, the harsher the return will be.
Another story worth considering is the story of the tower of Babel. There are different ways of interpreting this story. But if the story tells us one thing it’s that God does not like a centralized system that does away with all differences. This is unnatural for God. Eventually the Lord had to knock down the tower(s). I suppose it shouldn’t surprise us that today we see a globalist elite, that venerates Lucifer, not only pushing a degenerate Sodom and Gomorrah culture on us but also trying to build a one world system that does away with all differences.
The road back to order will be bumpy.
