As pre­vi­ous­ly dis­cussed, the il­lu­sion of new­ness can be dis­pelled and by read­ing God’s Es­cha­tol­ogy, false es­cha­tolo­gies are eas­i­ly ex­posed. The more dif­fi­cult task is ex­cis­ing our sus­cep­ti­bil­i­ty to the de­cep­tion of ide­olo­gies. Let us be­gin by con­sid­er­ing the stat­ed goal of fem­i­nism: to bring greater har­mo­ny in hu­man­i­ty by pro­mot­ing equal­i­ty be­tween men and women. With­in the church, every re­gen­er­at­ed mind wants to agree with this goal. It is true that there is dishar­mo­ny in hu­man­i­ty and it is true that men of­ten treat women un­right­eous­ly. It seems rea­son­able to say that things would be bet­ter if men and women were at peace with each oth­er. So when we hear that this vague word “equal­i­ty” is a means of achiev­ing this peace, we are tempt­ed to pur­sue it.

Now the mis­take be­ing made here is deeply sub­tle. When any­one claims that “xyz” can bring har­mo­ny be­tween men and women, they are pre­sum­ing to know what a man and woman is. On the foun­da­tion of this pre­sump­tion, a so­lu­tion is con­coct­ed. By study­ing the pro­posed so­lu­tion, you can par­tial­ly de­ter­mine what the ide­ol­o­gy thinks of men and women. For ex­am­ple, com­mu­nism says there can only be peace when all peo­ple are equal by own­ing all the same things. This im­plies that com­mu­nism be­lieves that peo­ple are no more than the sum of their pos­ses­sions. Cap­i­tal­ism says there can only be peace when peo­ple are al­lowed to freely pur­sue their self­ish­ness. Ob­vi­ous­ly, cap­i­tal­ism be­lieves that peo­ple are fun­da­men­tal­ly self­ish.

So when fem­i­nism pro­pos­es peace by mak­ing men and women equal, we must ask what does fem­i­nism think men and women are? Let us pause for a sec­ond to con­sid­er what equal­i­ty means. At best, equal­i­ty must mean equal in val­ue. At best, fem­i­nism aims at mak­ing men and women equal in val­ue with­in the so­ci­ety. Now we see that fem­i­nism only in­ter­acts with men and women ac­cord­ing to their val­ue. This is why fem­i­nism has been called so­cial com­mu­nism. How­ev­er, when we look back, we see that racism, aryanism, cap­i­tal­ism are also do­ing the ex­act same thing. False ide­olo­gies look at men and women, evaluate them and then be­gin to make pro­pos­als based that evaluation.

The Lev­el­ing Plague

Sounds sim­ple right and even in­nocu­ous. Yet the hum­ble Chris­t­ian, who does not rush blind­ly, but re­turns like the Bere­an to the Bible will even­tu­al­ly see the lie of omis­sion, the neg­a­tive space swirling like a mael­strom, aim­ing to make tiny this big loud word called val­ue! How, just how, do you mea­sure the val­ue of a man or the val­ue of a woman? Did you make them? And if you can mea­sure their val­ue, how would you now go about mak­ing them equal in val­ue? In­tel­li­gent econ­o­mists fluc­tu­ate on how to de­ter­mine the val­ue of inan­i­mate goods1 but some­how we can now de­ter­mine the val­ue of a liv­ing, breath­ing, think­ing, feel­ing man or a woman.

There is only one way to do this evil thing. You have to strip liv­ing, breath­ing peo­ple of their hu­man­i­ty. You have to sell men and women into the slav­ery of quan­tifi­ca­tion so that they can ac­quire a val­ue. Only af­ter mak­ing them less than they are in or­der to “val­ue” them can you now be­gin the more grue­some and gory task of mak­ing them equal in val­ue. And if, for what­ev­er rea­son, they don’t fit in the val­ue box, you must cut off their arms!2 This de­scrip­tion is in­suf­fi­cient­ly graph­ic. You can find more ac­cu­rate de­scrip­tions of what was done and is be­ing done to peo­ple by read­ing about the cap­i­tal­ist sex/slave trade, the holo­caust, the com­mu­nist gu­lags and “abort­ed” ba­bies.

But again, as Solomon re­vealed, this thing of valu­ing hu­man be­ings, of trun­cat­ing and mas­sacring the in­ef­fa­ble so that it might be con­fined with­in the space of a num­ber, is not new. David did it in 2 Samuel 24:1-4, 15-16 and God brought a plague upon Is­rael that killed about 70,000 peo­ple. Racism, trib­al­ism, chau­vin­ism, aryanism, fas­cism, com­mu­nism, cap­i­tal­ism, fem­i­nism and every oth­er false ide­ol­o­gy all con­tin­ue to do this evil thing. Bil­lions have died and many more will die as a re­sult.

Holy Val­u­a­tion

The geno­cides caused by un­holy val­u­a­tions are all the more heinous be­cause God Gives a law to teach us how to val­ue peo­ple.

Ex­o­dus 30:11 The LORD said to Moses, 12 “When you take the cen­sus of the peo­ple of Is­rael, then each shall give a ran­som for his life to the LORD when you num­ber them, that there be no plague among them when you num­ber them. 13 Each one who is num­bered in the cen­sus shall give this: half a shekel ac­cord­ing to the shekel of the sanc­tu­ary (the shekel is twen­ty ger­ahs), half a shekel as an of­fer­ing to the LORD. 14 Every­one who is num­bered in the cen­sus, from twen­ty years old and up­ward, shall give the LORD’s of­fer­ing. 15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less, than the half shekel, when you give the LORD’s of­fer­ing to make atone­ment for your lives. 16 You shall take the atone­ment mon­ey from the peo­ple of Is­rael and shall give it for the ser­vice of the tent of meet­ing, that it may bring the peo­ple of Is­rael to re­mem­brance be­fore the LORD, so as to make atone­ment for your lives.”

This com­mand is beau­ti­ful for many rea­sons. One of the most ba­sic forms of val­u­a­tion is the sim­ple count­ing of in­di­vid­u­als called a cen­sus. God Com­mand­ed that at every cen­sus, any­one num­bered has to give an of­fer­ing to the tem­ple as atone­ment so that a plague would not come upon Is­rael. And so we learn from God that the process of valu­ing peo­ple is dead­ly and de­struc­tive, not only to the per­son be­ing count­ed, but also to every­one in the com­mu­ni­ty. Eval­u­a­tion al­ways brings a plague(com­mu­ni­ca­ble, in­fec­tious) upon the peo­ple be­ing eval­u­at­ed ... un­less each per­son can make atone­ment be­fore God for their lives. 70,000 peo­ple died dur­ing David’s cen­sus be­cause the peo­ple did not make atone­ment. The po­ten­tial con­se­quences of valu­ing peo­ple wrong­ly cou­pled with the cost of the atone­ment will au­to­mat­i­cal­ly make a leader less like­ly to take a cen­sus. How­ev­er, if a na­tion does de­cide to count its peo­ple, the act of atone­ment forces the na­tion to humbly bow be­fore God in­stead of boast­ing in pride of their great num­bers.

Look at the of­fer­ing God De­mand­ed. It was the same for all. It was the same for the rich and for the poor, the young and the old; The Same Atone­ment for all. In Ex­o­dus and every­where else in the Bible, peo­ple, men, women, greek, jew, free, slave, child, aged are deemed equal in val­ue, not by a man-gen­er­at­ed num­ber, but by The Atone­ment of Je­sus Christ. Chris­t­ian, lis­ten! God Re­minds you way, way back in Ex­o­dus, that when you en­deav­or to val­ue peo­ple even by count­ing them, you must do two things: 1 You must re­mem­ber God Who Made them and their sin against Him. 2You must re­mem­ber Je­sus Christ Who Died for them; that their lives are Worth His Own. To tru­ly val­ue peo­ple you need not dis­cov­er some econ­o­mist’s mag­i­cal equa­tion nor do you need to cre­ate a bet­ter means of ger­ry­man­der­ing. All you need to do is en­sure that any means of val­u­a­tion you choose is cen­tered around: 1 God’s Wrath on our sin and 2 The Worth of Je­sus Christ and His Sac­ri­fice To Atone for our sins.

The process and con­se­quences of holy val­u­a­tion is ap­plic­a­ble to every sit­u­a­tion where any­thing or any­one is be­ing val­ued. When a teacher grades a stu­dent or eval­u­ates them, he must re­mem­ber that they are sin­ful un­der God’s Wrath and he must also re­mem­ber that Je­sus Christ Atones for their sins be­cause He Died for them. A stu­dent will not look at her A or F and there­by be­come pride­ful or con­sid­er sui­cide. She will look at her sin against God in Heav­en and ask Him to Re­mem­ber her Atone­ment, Je­sus Christ on The Cross. When a hus­band looks at his wife or con­sid­ers how to raise his chil­dren, he must not val­ue them based on how beau­ti­ful they are or how well be­haved. No. He must first con­sid­er that they are sin­ners and then he must look at The Worth of Je­sus Christ Who Died to Atone for their sins. This will save his fam­i­ly from the plague of di­vorce since he will val­ue her ac­cord­ing to the worth of Je­sus Christ and con­tin­ue to love her deeply even when she “makes him an­gry”. He won’t be­lieve his chil­dren are “okay”. He will im­mu­nize his chil­dren against the plague of un­god­li­ness by con­tin­u­ing to teach them to fear God even though they don’t drink or do drugs.

What Shall we do

But when holy val­u­a­tion is not fol­lowed then you see teach­ers think­ing stu­dents are worth­less, stu­dents think­ing them­selves as wor­thy as their grades and ac­com­plish­ments and men judg­ing their wives by what she can “do for them”. Be­cause of the way they val­ue men and women, racism says one group is su­pe­ri­or to an­oth­er, aryans hate Jews, cap­i­tal­ists sniff at wel­fare and fem­i­nism sup­ports abor­tion. It would be pro­lix and coun­ter­pro­duc­tive to crit­i­cize every sin­gle ide­ol­o­gy in or­der to con­clude that skin col­or or wealth or eth­nic­i­ty or gen­der etc are poor ways of de­cid­ing a per­son’s val­ue. It is far bet­ter to un­der­stand that any ide­ol­o­gy or po­lit­i­cal sys­tem be­comes false by fail­ing to val­ue men and women ac­cord­ing to The Wrath of God on our sins and The Holy Worth of Je­sus Christ Who Atones for our sins. Any ide­ol­o­gy or po­lit­i­cal sys­tem that fails to do these two things is false and nec­es­sar­i­ly brings plague and death upon the very peo­ple that came to it for sal­va­tion.3

So if you wish to be able to iden­ti­fy a false ide­ol­o­gy or false prophe­cy, read Gen­e­sis 1-3 over and over and over and then do it again. Then, you will be able to rec­og­nize any false prophe­cy or ide­ol­o­gy by their si­lence. Lis­ten for the si­lence amidst the noise telling you the val­ue of a man or a woman or an un­born baby or your val­ue ... be­cause of your vote or bank ac­count. Con­tin­ue lis­ten­ing for the si­lence as they ca­coph­o­nate about how you can live your best life now or how their god wants you to be pros­per­ous while iron­i­cal­ly quot­ing Bible vers­es from prophets who suf­fered as they died. Amidst all these loud noisy lies can you now hear Whom they are silent about?

False ide­olo­gies and false prophe­cies will not speak God’s Word about His Wrath on your sin and/or The Holy Worth of Je­sus Christ and His Atone­ment for your sin. They will not speak to you the whole coun­sel of God’s Word. In­stead, like the dev­il in Eden, they will use words, even steal­ing God’s Word Matthew 4:6, to paint you a fu­ture that leaves God out by mak­ing you god. They will im­ply or say, “You don’t need God. Eat this fruit and you shall be like God. You’re al­ready a god. Just speak it into ex­is­tence cause you know there’s pow­er in the tongue.”4 And once you hear this ca­coph­o­ny try­ing to drown out God’s Word, do like Je­sus The Christ and flee to God. Es­cape in Christ from com­ing Wrath of The Lamb. Be­gin to do like Paul. Stop valu­ing peo­ple ac­cord­ing to the flesh2 Corinthi­ans 5:16. Con­sid­er and praise God in Heav­en that Je­sus Christ Died for their sins1 Corinthi­ans 2:2 and love them ac­cord­ing­ly.

True Worship:
Our goal in this se­ries of ar­ti­cles is to pro­vide gen­er­al pat­terns fol­lowed by false prophe­cies so that you can more eas­i­ly iden­ti­fy them. In the process, we will learn how to pro­tect our souls, our chil­dren and the church from their dead­ly in­flu­ence. The Bible Right­ly Calls false prophets wa­ter­less clouds Jude 1:12, 2 Pe­ter 2:17. The Voice of God Is Deep Thun­der John 12:29, Ex­o­dus 20:18-19 and His Elo­quence Is Glo­ri­ous Rain Isa­iah 55:1, 10-11. But from the mouths of false prophets and an­tichrists come only loud noise and dry rain and their evil words pool in emp­ty wells called ide­olo­gies.De­ceived by the il­lu­sion of wa­tery depths, we lis­ten dili­gent­ly to these shal­low fa­bles only to be filled with even greater thirst. For here is the great se­cret of ide­olo­gies: they are more prop­er­ly called idol

This article is the result of many tears and many years in the desert using my wealth and glory to form gods of wood that cannot speak when instead I should have and could have been silent Habbakuk 2:19-20. Have you come to notice the same thing your life? When I first read Exodus 32:1-3, I thought to myself, “How impatient those Israelites are? Don’t they know Moses is coming back down?” I would never get so impatient and so afraid and make other gods to worship and other lights to guide me Leviticus 10:1-2. Right? Would you? Have you ever found yourself following gods of your own making? Was it your husband, your wife, your kids, your job, your education, your power, your money? And where did they lead you? And if they are still leading you now are you satisfied? Do you know they are leading you to death?I wrote last year about how we, like Hagar, find ourselves in the desert by

Having removed the clothing of time, and place and culture that we imposed on true worship, Jesus begins to weave for her new clothes. He begins to tell us what worship is really about by taking us back to the basics John 4:22. But to do so, He reintroduces culture. He separates Jews and Samaritans by their worship! Why? Doesn’t this contradict what He said in the last sentence John 4:21. No. Let us re-emphasize what we mentioned in the last chapter. We cannot appropriate spiritual truths unless they have a physical consequence. God does not take you up high without grounding you in the earth(humus), in humility. There is an important difference between what Jesus is doing in verse 22 and what He is speaking against in verse 21. Verse 21 shows how we use culture to constrain worship. Jesus flips the whole thing.He is telling us that worship defines culture. We have been wrong to think

Jesus removes the constricting clothes we have put on religion and worshipWe’ve come a long way so far. Most recently we talked about what true worship is and how it is about God moving through us and not us doing things for God.How We Clothe WorshipBut we have gotten ahead of ourselves in the previous post. So now we must go back. Our primary problem is this: how do we separate true worship from other forms of worship? Where is the line between true religion and false religion? John 4:21 Jesus does not begin to define true worship in a positive way. He doesn’t begin by telling you what it is. First, he begins in verse 21 by telling us what true worship is NOT. The first thing Jesus does then is remove the constraints we have placed on worship. He strips true worship of its location, its culture and its time.Verse 21 is in response to the woman at the well’s statement in John 4:20.
