Letter from John Bingaman of Mid-Atlantic Reformation Society

Dear LVC Editor,

 

ANYTHING BUT THAT

 by John Bingaman at Mid-Atlantic Reformation Society

It’s not hard to find editorials and essays seriously hand-wringing about
the state of civility in Western society. Think about all the outrages
being discussed:

  • Public education
    • Political intrigue and follies
    • Police abuses
    • Monetary & economic abasement
    • Military uncertainties
    • Global warming / cooling / “change”
    • Sexual misconduct

You probably have your own list – maybe longer, maybe shorter. But
surely you have a list.

Now think about the diagnoses and prescriptions of the essays and news
articles you read. When was the last time you read anything of
significance regarding what you might do to make things better?
Mostly, the essays leave their readers in despair – “Just reporting the
facts, ma’am.”

Perhaps you’ll read a prescription for how to protect yourself from the
on-going slide down the slippery slope. Often, there’s the default
petition to civil government to impose or increase enforcement of some
rule that might solve the difficulty. But that’s always something that
“someone” should do.

Without guidance on how to effect change, our “fight or flight” response
is engaged but directionless. And the despair rides on.

Review my list above; review your own list. Does not each of the
societal ills root from a break in morality and ethics? And here we are
again, back to the notion of Right and Wrong. (Seems like that’s all I
write about).

Having left our Bibles to search for truth elsewhere we always end up in
despair and mis-diagnosed and prescription-less. But that’s the point of
this message.

When you read the latest outrage or the next novel analysis of societal
ills, note how assiduously the writer avoids pointing out that the problem
is our abandonment of Christian norms. The lost heritage of a Christian
worldview applied outside the church is the single, basic problem being
manifested in our lists of ills. The commentators, journalists, legislators
and others will suggest Anything But That.

So, what can we do? In conversation, in letters to editors, in on-line
comments and responses we must point out to anyone and everyone that
only when society holds to a common moral code will that society hold
together. If every man does what’s right in his own eyes, our lists will
grow because the conflicts will multiply.

Most importantly, the common moral code we point to must be the
Bible. It’s worked before, it will work again. The solutions to our lists
of problems are to be found in the re-capture of the biblical moral code.
