FREE WILL AND THE HYPOCRISY OF “MORAL “ AND CIVILIZED SOCIETY
By Apolinario Villalobos
In the Bible, Proverbs 16:9 says, “in their hearts, humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps”. Unfortunately, the abuse of this Biblical adage has contributed a lot to what has become of the world. Free will made the strong and greedy exploit the weak. They intentionally disregard the rightful steps established by the Lord.
Pondering deeply on this issue, as humans are supposed to “plan their course”, many aspects of life should be taken into consideration such as victims of diseases who live in pain, ageing people who seriously consider themselves to have outlived their usefulness on earth and neglected humans left to die alone. These are the humans whose best option is to rest gracefully, endorsed properly to the waiting arms of the Lord….they just want to rest…they did not kill or steal because of free will…..they did not exploit others. But the hypocrisy of the “moral” and civilized human society insists that it is not right to take the life given by the Lord…BUT THEN, HUMANS DID NOT ASK TO BE BORN. THEY ARE THE RESULT OF COPULATION…OF SEX, WHETHER THE INTENTION IS JUST LUST OR PURE LOVE. ON THE OTHER HAND, IF THE “STEPS ESTABLISHED” BY THE LORD INCLUDE THE “RIGHT TIME TO DIE” DESPITE THE PAIN AND NO HOPE FOR RECUPERATION, THEN, THE LORD IS SADISTIC.
Confined epidemics and worldwide pandemics have brought about sufferings as with famine, exploitations, disasters and wars. Human intelligence and technology are able to salvage many lives but still many are left to endure the pain and face the inevitable death. Many poor families have members living in pain due to disease with no cure in sight and worse, due to financial incapability to sustain their life, what with the expensive medical attention and drugs. Many ageing humans painfully wait for their right time to rest, with many neglected by the very people whom they took care of from birth. Many people sanely think that they have reached the end of their useful life.
UNFORTUNATELY, THE HYPOCRITE “MORAL” HUMAN SOCIETY WOULD RATHER SEE THE STRONG EXPLOIT THE WEAK, HEAR THE MOANS OF HOPELESS MAIMED VICTIMS OF TRAGEDIES, SEE THE AGONY ON THE FACE OF THE DISEASED PATIENTS IN POOR HOMES AND HOSPITALS, AND REMAIN OBLIVIOUS TO THE BLANK STARE OF WASTING OLD PEOPLE NEGLECTED BY THEIR FAMILIES.
WHAT “USEFULNESS IN LIFE” CAN BE PERCEIVED IN PEOPLE WHO MOAN IN AGONY?…OF NEGLECTED OLD PEOPLE WITH BLANK STARE?…THE DYINGFIGURES IN BONES AND SKIN WHOSE HEARTS ARE MADE TO BEAT BY A MACHINE?
THE “MORAL” SOCIETY OF CIVILIZED HUMANS IS HELPLESS AGAINST ALL FORMS OF EXPLOITATIONS , YET CONDEMN THE SIMPLE DESIRE OF THOSE WHO SANELY CHOOSE TO REST AND BE WITH THE LORD….THAT IS THE HYPOCRISY OF THE “MORAL” SOCIETY OF THE CIVILIZED HUMANS.
