As I’ve written in the past, every conflict has a commercial root. This principle should be obvious. When the numbers don’t match up with expectations, there is conflict. This applies to everything from the price of a candy bar going up a nickel, to the major changes in the economy. The only certainty is that there is a problem, and someone is going to pay for it. These conflicts get out of control because people fail to distinguish between humanity and commercial identity. In those instances when we find that people don’t seem to be the people we thought we knew, it is because we knew their humanity. The standards and behavior change, when commercial identity takes over.
The contrast is so striking because the change appears to be a complete betrayal of belief and conscience. The fact is that there is no betrayal. In reality, choice of law and legal standing has taken place. Everything we are being told is still true to the beliefs of the party that is speaking. Simply stated, this is the nature of the double – minded culture in which we live in. That condition is rooted in a basic flaw in human nature. The will of the flesh and the will of the spirit are in constant struggle. What we experience is the shifting balance of power, and the resulting change in boundaries. It is perfectly understandable when we don’t recognize landmarks on the battlefield. Obviously, the combatants have changed alliances and friends become enemies. Enemies become business partners.
This basic conflict germinated and sprouted to become the “Two Masters” blog post. It is now necessary to expand on the duplicity of human nature. The fact that two authorities tug at huma intellect and conscience is a given. It is the nature of those two authorities that mark the boundaries in human behavior. we see obvious examples of this in the news and our own personal experiences.
Jas 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
People claim to be Americans, free inhabitants on the land, with inalienable rights, granted by the Creator. Yet, their commercial actions are compliant with Secular Humanism, the instruction and law of another god. This is the very definition of the double minded man. This is one aspect of the causes of trouble in the world. The world moves in the direction of the master that it loves, at the moment. As we see in the news every day, the world has moved far from any expression of Biblical standards. Everyone believes that they have the right to their own opinion. No argument there. The defect is in that debt changes all of that. The debtor is servant to the lender. The debtor becomes a commercial extension of the lender, a slave. In the commercial context of modern life, a slave expressing an opinion contrary to the will of the master, can be deprived of life, liberty and property. In effect, slaves are commercially executed. This is the obvious action taken, when a legal document is “executed”.
We decide which master we serve, many times in a day. So does everyone else.That interaction might be a little more stable and consistent, if we were mindful of our choice of law and legal standing.
Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Gal 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Gal 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Gal 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
