Free Will and the Hypocrisy of “Moral” Civilized Society

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.

Survival and Free Will

Survival and Free Will

By Apolinario Villalobos

 

 

I just cannot help but notice that we seem to be reverting back to the days of the Old Testament….every race fighting for survival, and each having a “priest”. For the Christian soldiers, they have their “chaplain” who says Mass or whatever religious service that applies…soldiers are blessed with “holy water” or “prayed over” before they depart for battle. Islamic faithful have their Imams. And, just like in the Old Testament, hideous pagan practices have also proliferated which are viewed as part of the normal way of life.

 

Still, another opinion…there may not be a total cleansing of the world that will come, because, such cleansing could be happening right now – through epidemics, pockets of wars, calamities, inventions that prove more destructive than constructive, and famine. Practically, man is into self-annihilation. But, with the bad, there is the good which is about those who chose the Right Path, and who will remain standing at the end of the day!…that is how Free Will works!

 

Along this observation, my suggestion is that we should not compare our faith with that of others as the best way towards salvation, as it all depends on HOW we put our faith into practice. Also, we should tolerate “free will” to the fullest, for as long it will not harm anybody when put to practice by the one who made a choice which for him is right.

Life and its Trimmings

Life and its Trimmings
by Apolinario Villalobos

Life
Life is a blessing from God and manifested in many forms generally called “creations”, with man as one of them – intelligent and all. Some men are happy to be alive, while some blame God for such blessing.

Man
He is the premier creation of God with free will and intelligence. In his veins flows the blood of life where the DNA floats – story book of what he is and will be. His intelligence made him think that he can be another God. And, because of this pride and greed, he is committing a self-destruction that he deserves.

Misery
It is the result of man’s greed suffered by the weaker of his kind. The world is overflowing with it.

Civilization
It is the manifestation of man’s struggle to live decently by covering his body, tame the wild creatures and utilize the earth for his subsistence, produce tools for protection and domestic use, kill others for the expansion of his domain, and defy God that he cannot see.

Religion
Foremost, it is an invisible line that separates the peoples of the world. More potent than culture in setting differences, it is also the garden from where sprouts various devotions with hideous faces. Man’s desire for power and insatiable greed created it.

Progress
It is the fruit of man’s struggle for a better life. It is a beautifully-designed scheme for man’s self-annihilation, with all its modern synthetic drugs and food, bombs and guns, and most specially, craving for endless comfort with its deadly undertone.

Corruption
It is the essence of politics and government systems. It gives impetus to the ambitious people with a “noble aspiration to serve”. It also gives zest to those who are already in position and with power to “serve the people”.

Opportunity
It glitters with a promise of wealth for the strong with evil mind, but burdens the weak to the extent of death.

Politics
It is the breeding ground for corruption where intellectuals become expert in sowing miseries among helpless constituents.

Government
It is the extensive umbrella that gives shade of comfort and security to the corrupt who profess to protect the welfare of the people.

Law
It is the legal tool of the vicious and learned people in their practice of corruption and exploitation.

Education
It provides knowledge to man based on historic principles and guidance designed by well-intent intellectuals of the old. But, abused by modern-day hypocrite agencies and abusive institutions, that pledge their never-ending exploitation of the youth.

Poverty
It is the state of being deprived of the basic necessities of life, resulting from exploitation or choice.

Wealth
It refers to either the spiritual or material gain of man. When used in the right way, it makes the man benevolent, but if used otherwise, it makes him evil…the world has more of the latter.
