Worldviews and Secular Morality

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

When I go for an oil change, call technical support, order a pizza, see a doctor, or other things, I do not ask about the views of these people. I am more interested in getting the requested service done properly. Perhaps an opportunity to share the gospel or have an interesting discussion will occur.

People with fundamentally flawed worldviews reject God and judge those of us who follow him.

These days, it seems to be the opposite. There are times when the way you self-identify (ethnicity, sexual preference, political affiliation, environmental extremist, etc.) is more important to misotheists than what you have to offer. In many cases, people with agendas will manufacture a crisis and manipulate the emotions of people. Tinhorns are gleefully hijacking the COVID-19 situation for their own fundamentally flawed worldviews.

Dr. R. Albert Mohler discussed how there is an abundance of false research that is supported by the mainstream media. Why? It is no secret that the media are anti-Christian, anti-creationist, anti-Bible, anti-family, and oppose just about anything else that God has given us. American media are also anti-Conservative. Dubious sources and selective citing are utilized to support abortion, atheism, global climate change fearmongering, sexual perversion, and more ad nauseam.

Evolutionists are attempting to capitalize on the virus as well, see "Evolutionary Advice on the Pandemic Is Not Helpful" and "Evolution and the Coronavirus Pandemic".

Leftists are politicizing the Coronavirus pandemic for their own ends. To be blunt, they are a large part of the culture of death, and many people have observed the disappointment of leftists when the models are revised that the number of projected deaths. Socialist (communist, really) Bernie Sanders said, "I hope very much that out of this terrible tragedy we do some fundamental rethinking about the nature of American society". Before that, James Clyburn said that a bill would be “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.” Leftists are racializing the pandemic, saying it is worse for black and brown people — using fake reasoning and neglecting the gathering habits of certain groups. Also, a virus in incapable of caring who it infects. Here is another racist event.

These sidewinders play identity politics as if it was a game for points or television ratings instead of finding out who is qualified for the job under discussion. No matter your perversion or persuasion, folks who lack sense and agree with all things "Orange Man Bad", are considered "good" and can sign on. Hating the God of the Bible gives bonus points. Most cable news outlets in the US (and many in other countries) are hardcore leftist. Go ahead and count the officials from Clinton and Obama administrations who have programs and tell people what to think.

People who reject the Creator God as revealed in the Bible impose a secularist "morality" based on trends, feelings, and especially rebellion against God. When Samaritan's Purse, an organization established by Franklin Graham, set up to help COVID-19 people, Graham was blasted with the galactically stupid epithet of "homophobe", and it was implied that since he believes what the Bible teaches about sexuality instead of basing his life on cultural trends, his people might give improper care to homosexuals. People are foolish enough to believe such anti-Christian bigotry.

Dr. Mohler also mentioned that the United Nations was established with good intentions, but was entirely secular. As time went on, it embraced globalism (a one-world government) as well as communist and other totalitarian regimes. The United States was frequently portrayed as the bad guy while the organization and members happily (and hypocritically) received American money. This child agrees with the sentiment, "Get the US out of the UN, and the UN out of the US".

So where do those who abhor Christianity and established values get their morality?

Since they reject Jesus Christ and the biblical worldview, their "morality" is subjective and incoherent. It is also based on political and cultural trends. As such, they are subject to whims — and the emphasis on what is trendy frequently shifts. God the Son, our Creator, became a man just over 2,000 years ago. He died on a cross to redeem us, and we celebrate his bodily resurrection, defeating death and sin. We can have salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, giving us hope and peace in this fallen and confused world. I urge those who are reading to repent and put their trust in Christ alone.

Evolution and the Coronavirus Pandemic

Rahm Emanuel said, "You never let a serious crisis go to waste". That is, politicize it and work it to your own advantage. Leftists politicians are known for not only using and exaggerating crises, but have manufactured them. Believers in universal common descent are using the coronavirus (COVID-19) to further their agenda.

Evolutionists are using the coronavirus health threat to further their agenda. This is despite the fact that Darwinism is harmful to medical science.

In a previous post, we saw the wonders of how the Master Engineer designed our immune system, and information on the coronavirus was provided. Naturalists not only reject the Creator, but they are interpreting data from their presuppositions and personal preferences. Indeed, they even try to pull the wool over our eyes by claiming that evolution is useful!

The coronavirus is a serious health threat (see "Coronavirus: A Biblical & Practical Perspective"), but when assets of the Darwin Party claim that evolutionary thinking is necessary, this is not only foolish, but dishonest as well. Further, we can see that these scientists are more intent on pushing evolutionism than in solving a problem. If they would cowboy up and leave Darwin out yonder at Deception Pass, they would have a far better framework in dealing with this health issue. There is no evolution here, pilgrim — a virus is still a virus.
Evolutionists are trying to sneak Darwin into another field where he doesn’t belong.
Do viruses mutate? Sure. The flu is slightly different each year. But flu is still flu. Mutations are random changes. Evolutionary theory tries to explain progress: new organs, new functions and new information. Sorry, but Darwinism is no help for the current worry about the coronavirus becoming a pandemic.

Our Engineered Immune System

You may remember from school days that the heart pumps blood, it circulates through our systems, gets oxygen, and the cycle continues. That is the simplest example, but there is far more involved. As science and technology develop, medical science is learning more about how our immune system operates.

Our immune systems are designed to fight infections and pathogens. This includes the coronavirus and others.

Although from a secular source, there is important information in "Five Reasons You Don't Need to Panic About the COVID-19 Coronavirus".

Both red and white blood cells have special functions to protect us from diseases and infections. We have a passel of microbes living in us and our system has to distinguish between the good ones and those that don't have our best interests at heart (so to speak). Throughout life, bodily systems learn and adapt, and even become more efficient at dealing with them. In fact, they learn. Interestingly, vaccinations help our immune system learn, and it can adapt to such intruders and those that are similar.

We have leukocytes that help clean us out, not only from intruders, but they help remove dead cells. They are programmed for specific interlopers, so there are quite a few of them that have their own assignments. Some cells are guides to point out the bad stuff: "Thanks. We'll take it from here." This is good to know with the current scare over the coronavirus.
Each day, we live at the mercy of pathogens and parasites, microbes about one-trillionth to one-thousandth of our size. We read about the flu causing havoc this winter in most parts of the USA and Europe. The flu epidemic is peaking earlier than normal and is spreading across the USA according to the CDC. Flu vaccination can help prevent flu and its potentially serious complications. In the summer, we read about malaria and Ebola outbreaks troubling tropical populations. The objectives of this article are (1) to explain the overcoming design principle of the immune system in effectively fighting pathogens and parasites in disease; and (2) to record the role of Christians and creation biologists in developing vaccines.
To read the this rather long but very interesting article with several illustrations, click on "Wise Blood: The Principle of Overcoming in Disease and Immunity (Part 1)". The next one follows below.

Our immune system has antibodies that are made by plasma cells to help eliminate pathogens. This special police force actually recognizes certain molecules, antigens, of the pathogens. (I can't help but thinking of the high-tech crime dramas where the evildoers are being tracked by law enforcement.) The antibodies also help promote the growth of beneficial bacteria and facilitate a helpful biome. Indeed, molecules-to-microbiologist evolution cannot even begin to explain the specified complexity and obvious engineering principles that our Creator provided. He provided salvation through his blood and resurrection, and also provides for us in our own blood.
The immune system serves more than just to “defend” against disease. The immune system was designed to interact with microbes and to cleanse the body of aging, dying, and dead red blood cells and bacteria even in the pre-fall world. The immune system in a pre-fall world worked to assist body development positively, and in the post-fall world, it also defends against pathogens. This is how most creation biologists view the immune system.
This one is also on the long side, but it's still very interesting and informative. You can read the entire article by clicking on "Wise Blood: Antibodies, the Principle of Overcoming in Disease (Part 2)". Also of interest is this article and an embedded video, "Coronaviruses in creation: Does the recent coronavirus outbreak support evolution?" Finally, you may like "The Life-Giving Blood".
