Victim Mentality, and the Transfer of Responsibility
I was not clearly connecting the dots between the Liberal's victim mentality, and socialism. I still see it through the fog, like looking through a smokey room in some sleazy joint. I know from the Bible that humanists will readily seek to blame someone else instead of taking responsibility for their own actions (Genesis 3.12-13). I am beginning to see how the liberals want to transfer individual responsibility to the state. They want the state to step in and be responsible for their irresponsible sexual practices (fund abortion, welfare, etc.). They want the state to step in and parent their children (education, NEA, Teacher's unions, etc.). The humanistic worldview naturally leads to big government, and socialism. If we have no absolute foundation for what is good, right, and true, everyone does what is right in his own eyes. When he goes against the natural laws given by God governing the universe, he has to blame someone else. Instead of choosing to do right, he is the "helpless victim of his hormones and DNA." How sad! For 6,000 years people have been able to take responsibility for their own actions, but our poor helpless homosexuals, prisoners, etc. are the helpless, spineless victims of their emotions, and environment. Their chant is, "We deserve!" "It is not our fault!" "Government should do something!" To these statements I must add two things: One, The Founding Fathers of America didn't see it that way. The references to their belief in moral absolutes, and self governance are too replete to post. If you do not see those many references, it is because you do not want to. Two, moral absolutes exist because Jesus Christ rose from the grave. Jesus Christ holds all things together by the power of His will (Colossians 1.16-17). But to accept this, we must all say... "It is my fault. I have sinned." To say this requires repentance ("change of mind") which would mean the total denial of their worldview (humanism). That may be something that is just too much to bear.
