Well, it is Monday morning, so let me write something outrageous. We can sweep up the pieces later. But also keep in mind the fact that just because something is outrageous, it does not follow that it is untrue or unnecessary. In fact, now that the cultural headquarters of our republic has been transferred to the National Zoo’s central monkey house, every day that goes by makes normality more and more outrageous. So there’s that.
Worldview thinkers know that everything is connected. The world is all of a piece, and in the final analysis, the long war between the seed of the woman and the seed of the serpent is an interpretive war over the whole. The seed of the woman seek to understand the world as the Creator of it understands it, and the seed of the serpent seek to understand it in evolutionary terms, which is to say, on its own terms.
The cosmos is here because God put it here. Or, taking the other route, the cosmos — in some form — was always here. Either God is eternal, or matter/energy are. In the former scenario, there was nothing material and then bam, there was everything that is. In the latter, you have constant, everlasting, unrelenting change. No hope, but lots of change.
The seed of the woman understand that the foundation of all wisdom begins with the Creator/creature divide. In the beginning, God . . . before the beginning, there was God. And God spoke, and “not God” came into being. And this triune God declared “not God” to be very good. Cornelius Van Til called this rudimentary fact the Creator/creature distinction. Peter Jones calls it Two-ism. But whatever you call it, the foundation of all true wisdom rests upon it.
The seed of the serpent insists that everything that is here morphed out of something else that was already here, and somehow, in some way, everything that is used to be something else. There was no ultimate beginning. All is One. This worldview exalts evolution of necessity; the whole thing is necessarily a protean, shape-shifting inchoate mass.
Now the worshipers of the Creator God have a Word from their God, and they also have the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The worshipers of Change have a faith also, and a sacrament to go with it, which turns out to be the multi-directional orgasm. They testify to their faith in evolution by insisting that anything be allowed to have sex with anything else. In case you were wondering, this is why that creepster transgender dude is in the women’s showers at the fitness club. It is also why discipline in such situations, when it is applied, is applied to any person who has a problem with the creepster being in there.
And besides, any woman who objects to showering with a dude who currently self-identifies as a woman is probably a woman who has a deep problem with Pharisaism.
