For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either. The ends of things and their beginnings are impregnably concealed from him in an impenetrable secret. He is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness out of which he was drawn and the infinite in which he is engulfed.
Blaise Pascal, Pensées No. 72
A Concise Statement: The Christian West advanced materially because it said that one could not be certain about the existence or non-existence of the Lord, or what comes after existence in this world. For example, Christian teachings like, “All men have sin and fall short of the Lord’s glory”, or “One should should not judge others lest they be judged(as hypocrites), or “All men are imperfect, and sinful, you should forgive other’s trespasses” ” Justice is only from the Lord”, are based on uncertainty. The Lord knows his creation and he knew he created men with doubt. Thus He allowed material advancement in the West, but not necessarily full or higher Spiritual growth and development. When Man turned around and said He was certain the Lord is the biblical Christian God the Lord said no. He is.
The reason the First Amendment makes sense is simply because Men are uncertain about their afterlife or who the Creator is and about what makes men good men or bad, and who bad men are. Yet, though the Lord can find fault, or imperfections in any man that only means that one should leave room for the Lord’s Mercy or grace.
When one observes the world objectively, even as a scientific fact, one can determine that there is good and evil. It is this observation, apart from other theological proofs, that leads us to the conclusion that there is a Lord. Most people don’t want to be evil. Most people don’t like snakes, bugs or parasites, bacteria, E.coli, etcetera, nor would they worship them.
The existence of the Lord is not an uncertainty. It is a well demonstrated fact. When uncertainty collapses Christianity’s moral value seems to disappear and can be seen as ephemeral.
