Remaking America by George Shollenberger, Idea VIII (Using Plato’s Negative and the Sword of Jesus Christ)
So, my new meaning of socialism is achieved merely by transforming Karl Marx’s atheistic socialism into God’s socialism (or social democracy), which becomes part of God’s intelligent design of our world. The meanings of atheistic socialism and social democracy can thus coexist on the same planet.
The coexistence of ideas tells us that God’s intelligent design allows possible ‘developments’ and ‘degenerations’ of man''s behaviors. Foe instance, God’s intelligent design allows the ideology of atheistic socialism to develop into the ideology of social democracy and allows the ideology of social democracy to degenerate into the ideology of atheistic socialism.
When a person uses Plato’s negative, the mind acts like a sword and divides mental ideas into coexisting oppositions. I conclude that Jesus Christ taught this mental activity at Matt. 10:34 where he says, ‘Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.’ I conclude that Jesus Christ used dialectical thinking and was a great communicator.
Just as I divided socialism into a pair of opposites, the founders of the USA negated England’s ungodly arbitrary laws and created a different set of laws. These different laws are opposing laws, if they are godly laws. The founders created such godly laws and presented them in the U.S. Declaration of Independence as ‘Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.’ Thus, I have said again and again that the Declaration of Independence is the highest law in the USA and that the Constitution is the second law of the USA..
Today, atheism divides the people of the USA. However, atheism is a ‘degenerating’ process as I said. Thus, if life does exists after death, an atheist will live forever in a continuous and endless degenerating process whereas non atheists will live forever in a continuous and endless developing process. These two forms of life are separating further and further as time passes. Here is my own meaning of Heaven and Hell. I would not want to live the never ending life of an atheist in Hell.
President Obama and today's Democratic Party are leading Ameticans into the developing process whereas all recent republican presidents, republican congresspersons, and Supreme Court judges do not know where to lead Americans.
