Bleak Theology: Hopeful Science

Judas Goats.

Antinominalism is a heresy that states that there is no law, and no need to obey it. That we are chosen by the grace of God, it is not our doing (true), and so what we do does not matter (untrue). Even the degenerates know that this is false. They know there is a law, and that they have failed. What Milo forgets is that our total depravity is one of the foundations of Reformed systematic theology.

People are Anglicans or Baptists or Methodists or whatever because they believe they’re good people, but Catholics are Catholics because they know they’re not. We have this thing called original sin. We go to Church because we know we’re not good. And for me at least, certainly living the lifestyle that I do, that’s a more honest approach to theology than other sorts of Christianity have to offer. Here’s the thing: Progressives will demand all manner of complex and weird acknowledgements for themselves. They want to be a gender – queer – blah blah blah – fill in the emphasis on whatever. But what they can’t understand is other people asking for the same acknowledgment that life is messy and complicated and that sometimes things aren’t fully recognized or realized or pulled together in your own mind. Sometimes it takes a lifetime of study and prayer…
Milo Yiannopolous, Those Catholic Men

Admittedly, the current liberal elite of most historic denominations want to talk about how much God loves us and has a wonderful plan for our life. I’m not sure about that first spiritual law. For at times, the glory of God will drive us from him, because we are not shriven: we are not right with him. Because we know we need to repent.

And those who deny the laws of God seem to make more onerous laws for themselves, but their laws did not come with such glory that the millions of Isreael trembled to a man.

Exodus 19:16-25

16On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, as well as a thick cloud on the mountain, and a blast of a trumpet so loud that all the people who were in the camp trembled. 17Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God. They took their stand at the foot of the mountain. 18Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke, because the LORD had descended upon it in fire; the smoke went up like the smoke of a kiln, while the whole mountain shook violently. 19As the blast of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses would speak and God would answer him in thunder. 20When the LORD descended upon Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain, the LORD summoned Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up. 21Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go down and warn the people not to break through to the LORD to look; otherwise many of them will perish. 22Even the priests who approach the LORD must consecrate themselves or the LORD will break out against them.” 23Moses said to the LORD, “The people are not permitted to come up to Mount Sinai; for you yourself warned us, saying, ‘Set limits around the mountain and keep it holy.'” 24The LORD said to him, “Go down, and come up bringing Aaron with you; but do not let either the priests or the people break through to come up to the LORD; otherwise he will break out against them.” 25So Moses went down to the people and told them.

There were only two men who were allowed onto Mt Sinai when the Lord Almighty gave the law to the Jews: not the natural law (they had that already) but the revealed law, by which you can gain salvation. However, no man has ever kept it but Christ: Moses had killed — albeit in the name of his nation — and he had put his wife away (she had returned to her father, with his children). Aaron appeared more righteous, but soon after this he made the golden calf.

Moses and Aaron were flawed. They were allowed into the prescence of God by his holy grace. It was not their doing.

And though Moses is preached, no one can keep his laws, yet alone the irrational, arbitrary laws of the revolution, where proclaiming clear falsehood is a sign of virtue.

Milo is correct. And in this time of untruth, we need to ally ourselves with those of faith. For the road is narrow and winding and difficult that leads to salvation. Convergence and damnation is easy.

And those who signal virtue and the Judas Goats of this day.
