The Great Order

The proof of God’s existence is that you can measure His creation.  Nature has laws because it is ordered.  The motion of the planets, the ebb and flow of the tides and the freezing point of liquids are all predictable.  Science proves God’s existence by being a discipline that can be put into practice.

Like physics, choice is governed by a moral order as well.  Despite the misgivings of philosophers like Kant and Hume who were fundamentally responsible for the moral decay of modern civilization, the new moral relativists are starting to come around and discover for the first time that objective morality really does exist. 

Racism, they claim, is not relative to time periods and climate activism is not relative to economic impact.  These social justice causes are rooted in objective, immutable moral order.  Now that they forced themselves into believing what they disputed with vitriol only a decade ago, what will they attribute as the source of this moral order?

The universal order of space and matter extends beyond its physical properties into the realm of justice and mercy.  Just as an apple will always fall from a tree, so too will an act of the will fall into a category of good or bad.  For thousands of years, this objective goodness was granted, formed, philosophized, and dogmatized.  It has only been a fraction of this time that this fundamental order has been questioned.

The invisible Intelligence that ensures the sun rises every morning is the same moral Lawmaker that revealed himself through the prophets until He made Himself visible in the form of the man, Jesus Christ.

Before Christ incarnated, this moral order was granted to a chosen Semitic people.  After Christ, that moral order was fulfilled and made accessible to the whole world.

Two thousands years later, we find ourselves in the Information Age.  Every word spoken by every prophet is accessible with only a few keystrokes.  Every thought from every great philosopher, theologian and scientist is at the fingertips of billions of people.

Yet, we live in a world of chaos, confusion, and ignorance.  We develop the most complicated schemes to solve simple issues.  After decades of intricate plans to make our life better, we return to the original way of life.  We remove the use of paper grocery bags for the newly invented plastic ones and then develop complex systems to come up with using paper bags again. 

Like Chesterton’s sailor in Orthodoxy who sets sail from England only to get turned around and think he has discovered a new place, modern man uses their pedantic ingenuity to discover old techniques to solve problems they started in the first place.

At the present time, their self-fulfilling ailments stem from the systematic disordering of all things natural and moral.  The result is a choppy sea of mental illness, disassociated youth and gripping fear at the core of every social policy.

Like the advent of vitamin supplements when the food industry processed out all nutritional value, it is the hope of the rightly ordered populace that the reinstitution of a proven moral code will once again grace the legislative assemblies.  The politicians can return to their forefather’s religion and discover it for the first time for themselves.

The great order of things may have been removed from the public square, but it still exists in billions of homes throughout the world.  A remnant of simple-minded families guided by wisdom that is beyond human nature.  Homes where prudence is the primary virtue that acts out goodness.  Where consequence begets justice.  Where discipline blossoms into fortitude and self-denial ennobles youth to live a lifestyle of temperance.

There will be a renaissance to the ways of God.  There will be a return to the Platonic philosophy that happiness is a state of “being” and far removed from a state of “doing” or “having”.

As the intersectionality of disordered choices cuts out the feeble legs that their erroneous theories base themselves on, they will fall.  And when they do, the church doors will be opened and we will welcome them so that for the first time they can experience a life well-lived in great order.
