The two Cultures

Ecumenics Org develops empirical solutions to our social problems and is an advocate for policies that use quantification over emotionalism. Liberalism works off, and in response to, emotional triggers, we need to develop and implement methodologies for overcoming liberal ideology before it engulfs us. This does not help build the church nor is it conducive to fulfilling our role as stewards of earth.

 Liberalism is an ideology that spans and unites politics, economics and art under the banner of human freedom. It is a way of thinking that idealizes freedom. Liberalism constitutes an obsession with personal freedom based on the emotions triggered by the idea of freedom. Scripture provides a diametrically opposed culture or way of thinking based on a more empirical approach to life. There are two groups one that is activated by emotional triggers and another that tends to follow reason wherever it leads. Ecumenics Org studies organization in terms of these two approaches and develops policy and other supports based on empiricism.

Ecumenics Org explains the state of the world as a conflict between Liberalism and conservatism; or between legal rights and human rights. The conflict is between the rule of law and what is provable. Secularism promotes the first position which we refer to as the liberal position. Conservatism is considered to be focused on tradition, but it also relies on definable standards. The reference to tradition is basically the recognition there are standards that are historically valid.

The conservative position is consistent with Scripture because the objective standards conservatives used are enshrined in Scripture. In all things Scripture clearly and simply understood has precedence and the final say for it is in Scripture that truth is most fully expressed.

Ecumenics Org is Fundamentalist in its theology and subscribes to a justice based on objectivity. Ecumenics Org believed ethics is rational and ethical living makes sense to a rational being.

Ecumenics Org subscribes to the doctrine of the infallibility and sufficiency of Jesus and Scripture. It is the contention of Ecumenics Org that scripture contains all we need to know about justice. Ecumenics Org believes Scripture provides the foundation for human rights and that human rights serves as the key to understanding justice.

Ecumenics Org believes in the sanctity of human rights. We believe God loves humanity and, in this love, gave us inalienable rights. Cultures that support the rights of man progress. God loves progress because progress is the outcome of obedience to God's Will. Progress is defined as the value added to the world. This is in accordance to the principles of Dominionism and Stewardship both Scriptural in origin.

As saints Christians own the world, not in its physical, outward appearance but as its culture and civilization, that component of reality that we the people have fabricated for our use and benefit. This is ours by right of creation and possession, this reality is ours, bequeathed to us by God. Our political jurisdictions represent our fabrication and possessions. Political jurisdictions are more justly defined by our ownership of our locations. Our ownership cannot be rescinded or reassigned by another. We own what we care for.

All authority must come from the base, from the local jurisdiction from which all power and authority flows. Power that takes authority away from the base infringes the human rights of us all. The state defends the doctrine of legal rights. Legal rights are a substitute for and a replacement of our human rights. Human rights are the rights of owners and proprietors, legal rights are the rights of subjects of the state.

We are owners of our lands not peasants or sharecroppers.
