Cancer

Someone recently commented on the site:
"Talk to a man from the Vietnam
Talk to a man from the Sea
Talk to a woman who's been abused
Talk to a woman who's been through childbirth
Talk to a person who was beaten as a child
Talk to a woman who threw a way her virginity and hates herself for it
Talk to man who's had everything taken away from him, his family, his dignity, his friends, his joys, his dreams, and his hope.

Then consider posting a site about your absolutes in beliefs"


I personally know at least one person fitting each of those descriptions. Yet I still see things in terms of absolutes. One must think in terms of absolutes, for to do otherwise will inevitably lead to moral decay, as can be seen throughout the world. Where would you draw the line and who draws such a line when values are fudged or expanded simply because we don't want to offend someone who believes their sin is okay? That is the way cancer spreads: mutant cells are allowed to exist in the body, allowed to spread their mutation, and end up destroying us. Sinners do the same thing to our society. But doctors cut out cancer, they bombard it with radiation. If a doctor refuses such a treatment, ignoring the cancer or relying simply on faith to cure it, he or she is negligent and can be sued. Moral relativists are like the negligent doctor, like Doctors of Satan. They refuse to cut out the cancer of society. They nurture it instead of cutting it out, instead of punishing it, instead of bombarding it with the Word of God, which is like radiation to sin. So sin weighs on our society like tumor. But Doctor's of Satan should not be sued; they should be punished the way sinners should be punished. At the very least we should do to them what we do to negligent doctors: not let them practice. They should be banned from the public discourse on morality. Their opinions regarding abortion, gay marriage, pornography, etc. are as worthy as those of a negligent doctor's medical opinion. Unfortunately, the way things stand with the rampant secularism that has overtaken our society, those of us who try to cut out the cancer -- we Doctors of Christ -- are treated like outcasts, like faith-healers. So the cancer spreads, and at a certain point it will be too late to cut it out.

I thought you were of the opinion that science was evil so wouldn't that mean that you would't support the idea that doctors should "cut out" cancer? So that would make you a hypocrite and your anology is nullified....

anonymous -- one of the things i love about this site are the leaps in logic readers will use to try to prove me wrong so that they may soothe their souls which are crying because they are so full of self-absorbtion and other evil. even if i were to concede being a hypocrit, in no way does it nullify my analogy. just because william bennet was caught being a gambler, does that make every good work he's ever done, every intelligent thing he's ever said, worthless?

also, if you read the site more fully, you would have read that i've also accepted the fact that science is inevitable, and if it's put under the proper guidence - the authority of church elders -- it can be used for good. furthermore, given it's inevitability, it is sure to be used for more terrible evil, just as it was used against the jews in the 30's and 40's. so we must beat evil scientists at their own game and invent our own things with which to control the world.

but perhaps, in the end, what i should have said is: scientists are evil. they are the ones that invent the ghastly experiments and devices that have corrupted mankind.

Nathaniel - I just wanted to compliment you on the increasing quality of your rebuttals to reader's comments. This one is a very good one, and while I do not agree with all of it it is a good argument, at least in the depth you have posted.

Happy Holidays

des -- that is very nice of you to have noticed. it's hard to do each comment I get justice, given the daily grind we must all go through to make a living, but i do try. i've been feeling especially lax of late, because i've been extremely busy with my congregation, preparing for christmas (there is a war against it, after all), protesting the homosexual agenda, etc. but soon my load will decrease, so expect many more insightful posts and responses, as well as poetry and short stories. The good doctor and I will also be meeting later this week to discuss what new heights it may be possible to reach with this blog.

Merry C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S (Other Holidays are for Satan)

So you're telling me that scientists are evil because they invent these ghastly devices and yet you think it was a good thing that they did those terrible things to the jews using those same ghastly devices?

anonymous -- i'm not quite sure where you got the idea that i think it was a good thing that the jews were killed with science, because a) i don't believe in the death penalty and b) i don't hate jews. they are God's chosen people.

It was just that this line confused me and I wasn't sure if you were saying it was a good thing or a bad thing.

"furthermore, given it's inevitability, it is sure to be used for more terrible evil, just as it was used against the jews in the 30's and 40's."
