world turned upside down

How has it been possible that in the last four years there have been such destructive consequences? We live in a time of unprecedented scientific advances that make us think that we are gods. Scientism makes us believe that we can solve all the problems that are planned for us. The truth is that they get worse and new ones are added that make the situation worse.

Referring to the disrupted world in which we live, Manuel Castells makes this diagnosis: “It is the social organization of humans that induces multiple intertwined destructive processes in us. We are not facing a curse, but ourselves, our inability to coexist in peace. Times to go back to the root and recognize our common humanity and manage it from the public sphere”.

When Manuel Castells writes: “We are not facing a curse” he is ruling out any possibility of a spiritual solution to the social problem that completely surrounds us. Since the Fall in Eden, man has been unable to manage his affairs well. In the Fall, in addition to the human factor, there is the collaboration of Satan, who is to blame for God cursing the Earth. He is co-responsible for our misfortunes. Faced with the evidence that we find ourselves in a disrupted world, Manuel Castells denies that the disrupted world in which we live the curse of God has anything to do with it.

Massino Recolcati writes: “If modernity has marked the moment of the just emancipation of the Self from the irrational obscurantism of superstition”. If reason, with all the supremacy granted to it, is incapable of repairing the evils that homo sapiens sapiens manufactures, why denigrate spirituality by classifying it as irrational obscurantism? It is true that there is a lot of false spirituality as well as a lot of false science. Because there is false science, will the true one be accused of irrational obscurantism? Despite the discredit that Religion enjoys today, it must be taken into account if you really want to leave behind this disrupted world that is present due to our bad head. Despite the fact that Massino Recolcati considers that modernity has emancipated the Self from irrational obscurantism, it is mandatory to go to the first three chapters of Genesis that narrate our origins according to God. Without them it is totally impossible to understand the disrupted world in which we live.

Evolutionists tell us that from less we go to more. From primate to homo sapiens sapiens. According to them, we still have a long way to go to improve the breed. The first three chapters of Genesis teach us just the opposite: we go from more to less. These chapters teach us that man is a direct creation of God and that he did not need to use a primate to infuse the breath of life that makes man a living being. No kinship unites us to the primates: “Not all meat is the same meat, but one meat is that of men, another that of beasts, another that of fish, and another that of birds” (1 Corinthians 15 : 39). The original matter of the human body is not of animal origin, it comes from the dust of the earth: “Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being. ” (Genesis 2: 7). After creation was finished: “God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, he was very good” (Genesis 1:31).

We know from Genesis 3 that an evil spiritual being intervened in man who had been created “very good” in order to stop him from being so (Genesis 3: 1-7). But the Lord God does not leave man in the ruinous state to which his disobedience had brought him. Genesis 3: 15 is the first prophecy that the Savior announces that by faith in the Name of Jesus the believer will be a new creation: “And I will put enmity between you (the devil) and the woman, and between your seed and the seed of the woman (Jesus), she will bruise your head, and you will bruise her heel.” A clear reference to Jesus dying on the cross for the salvation of the people of God.

Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister of Great Britain, when she started in politics wanted to save the world. Her reality made him see that this illusion was unattainable. When he fell from his horse he wrote: “In the years of my youth, when I was beginning my political career, with all my hopes, dreams and ambitions, it seemed to me and to many of my contemporaries that if we reached a period where we had good houses, a good education, and a respectable standard of living, then everything would be settled, and we would have a good future, and everything would be much easier. We now know that this is not so. We are facing the real problems of human nature. Why do we come across so many cases of cruelty to children? Why do we see so many cases of animal cruelty? Why do people resort to terrorism? Why do people turn to drugs? These are much more difficult problems. Why, when you have everything, do some people resort to these vile things that undermine the entire civilization?” The answer is very simple: They underestimate the first three chapters of Genesis that speak of our origins according to the Creator and by faith in the announced Messiah who regenerates the sinner, opening up hope in future glory.
