NSA Spying is Just Another Attempt by Man to Become Like God
The spiritual rift in our country has little to do with what God is. It has everything to do with who God is.
God is the absolute authority on earth. God is eternal, infinite, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, and benevolent. To Christians, God is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. To the unbeliever, however, the highest form of earthly authority is manifested through the power exercised by the hands of human government.
The secular left believes that central government is the highest form of earthly authority, and this profession of faith effectively thrusts the essential attributes of God upon the shoulders of a small group of centralized administrators. Rather than archaically bending a knee before the alleged infallibilities of an invisible God, this belief system seeks the “enlightening” and “benevolent” pursuit of perfecting the fallibilities of a morally-relative man.
Enter the concept of the surveillance state.
There are two reasons why secular fundamentalists, communists, progressives, and others on the political left tend to be such ardent supporters of surveillance efforts.
The first has to do with a question that prevents many people from embracing a Judeo-Christian worldview. Why does God allow bad things to happen?
