Christian Article, Houses, Part 1

“Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

 

Human freedom requires the “FAMILY” to be stable and obedient to God’s love laws. In this world of consequences, free will, sin, hatred, and violence; discontented man constantly places himself and others into unstable conditions, all because we fail to pursue Trinity’s perfect path. Agape love, goodness, and forgiveness is thus replaced by disobedience and fruits of the flesh. . For the sake of eternal freedom and dominion of earth; so sufferers can find Christ-filled hope; and so the church and parents can manufacture quality future leaders of tomorrow; we must all surrender to the Holy Spirit, the source of all freedom.

 

In a consequential world, where actions of one affect the well-being of another, freedom requires sound decision making. Too many times, bad decisions of self and or others place a person into unstable conditions, creating struggles to remain free and to have hope. For example, John steals from Joan, creating financial chaos in Joan’s life. Ralph has premarital intercourse with a sixteen year old girl, Amy, and then leaves Amy, after she gets pregnant. Amy thus has to live with the guilt of the sin, and also the struggles of being a single parent.  Finally, Ron gets drunk and accidentally kills a teenage pedestrian while intoxicated.  Unsound decisions have irreversible consequences, not just for self, but also possibly for others.

 

Just as one man’s mistakes (Adam) imprisoned generations to sin, another man’s (Jesus) obedience gave mankind to opportunity to experience both freedom and intimacy with God. Even though our actions will presumably never affect society like how Jesus and Adam did, never underestimate the rippling effect of our decisions’ consequences upon the human race.

 

 

Point 1: God created mankind: to love, be fruitful, multiply, and have dominion

 

God purposed man to have dominion over the Earth, rather than “life becoming masters of men.” This happens when we absolutely love God and, other humans life self. These are the purposes of men:

“Be fruitful and multiply.  Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.” (Genesis 1:28)

“And you must Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” (Mark 12:3-31)

Romans 13:10 says “Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”

When we love a person like self, and rely upon God’s wisdom for direction, interdependency would rule as man would cease creating “stumbling blocks” to another.

In man’s quest to be fruitful and multiply, man must choose Holy Spirit to produce fruit of the spirit (agape love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, and self-control) in his life. If we want to multiply in number through sexual reproduction, then it is critical for our actions not to teach them how to evil.
