Program #308 “Liberal hatred of judgment” – 9/24/2017 – Synopsis
This week’s program is the third in the series, “The Way of Cain.” We can find in Genesis 4 (the story of Cain and Abel) all of the foundational ideology of the Kingdom of Man in rebellion to God. This is part of Biblical typology. As the founding father of the Kingdom of Man, Cain’s initial attitudes and actions will be imitated by his posterity. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Therefore, if you want to really understand the motives behind leftist ideology in our day, simply dissect the story of Cain and Abel.
One aspect of Cain’s attitude was his anger toward God’s judgment. Cain complained “My punishment is too great to bear” (Genesis 4:13). That is quite different from the penitent confession commonly found in God’s people, “Righteous are You, O Lord, and upright are Your judgments” (Psalm 119:137).
Modern Liberalism, at its core, is built upon a hatred of God’s system of accountability and responsibility. To make contemporary application, I explain the ideology behind the current Social Justice Movement (SJM). Individual justice is the classic view of justice, but the Social Justice Movement shifts responsibility and accountability to the group. It is a very clever way for the impenitent to exonerate themselves.
