What does “separation of church and state” really mean?  Interestingly, it IS a valid legal concept.  The term actually refers to the fact that the jurisdiction and functions of these two God-ordained institutions are separate and distinct from each other.  What it doesn’t mean is that either of these institutions is independent from God and His Law.

  1. Occasionally a sermon or talk puts a LOT of things together for me. “Who is Man”, the third video in “The Truth Project” featuring Dr. Dell Tackett, was one of them.

    Dr. Tackett cited Abraham Maslow’s “self-actualization” in his bogus “hierarchy of needs” as a lie that has trapped many. I do not wonder. It started in the Garden of Eden, where the serpent’s “You shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” can be rephrased “You shall be as gods, DECIDING FOR YOURSELVES what is good and evil.” (emphasis added).

    Self-actualization!

    It also explains the universal human condition represented by the Tower of Babel – “Let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and make a name for ourselves” (Gen. 11:4).

    The Book of Judges, after describing the horrible conditions in Israel, concludes: “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” (Judges 21:25)
    But a king will self-actualize at the expense his subjects, frustrating THEIR self-actualizing lusts. Tokugawa Ieyasu, who was the first to unite Japan in his fist in the early 1600s, said “Tax the peasants so they neither live nor die.”

    A king in 1 Kings 12:1-16 chose tyranny over the advice of older, wiser men who counseled him “If you will be a servant to this people…and speak good words to them, they will serve you forever.” The people rebelled.

    If subjects under tyranny can not rebel, they will submit. Louis XIV emasculated his nobles, who “self-actualized” against those under them with their infamous lettres de cachet. Many behind the Iron Curtain had only vodka with which to “self-actualize”.

    But tyrants are “like the chaff which the wind drives away” (Ps. 1:4). “He who sits in the heavens laughs” at Obama’s pathetic effort to break the bands of the Lord and his anointed (Psalm 2:2-4), and he will answer to God for the lives he ruins in the process.

    But other people’s “self-actualization” destroys, too. Many divorce and abort regardless of who gets hurt – spouse, children (born or unborn), community. And don’t many oppose spanking because it hinders little darling’s “self-actualization?”

    What about “gay marriage” and “perceived sexual identity”? People who play in others’ sewers get dreaded diseases, and one need only disrobe for even a child to perceive his actual sexual identity. But people take this mega-horsehocky seriously.

    Why? Even heteros will legitimize perverted “self-actualization” to justify their own perverted counterparts, and will hate us for opposing them. The rebuttal? “Common sense insists ‘gay marriage’ is a lie, and a male’s ‘perceived female sexual identity’ is ridiculous. You’re a hypocrite to trample on MY ‘self-actualization’ based on natural law.”

    And what about us? Do we appeal to Constitutionalism as a cover for doing OUR own thing? The Libertarian who departs from Scripture is no less foolish. And, while I consider the Second Amendment non-negotiable, an armed rogue can be just as frightfully and irreparably “self-actualizing” in his own sphere as can a tyrant in his.

    One simple question exposes “self-actualization’s” folly: who, after all you accomplish, will know you even existed 100 years from today? The Tower of Babel builders failed to make a name for themselves, and who knows their names today? But everyone knows Abraham, whom GOD promised in the very next chapter to make HIS name great (Gen. 11:4, 12:2).
    Isaiah wrote, “ALL we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:6).

    Christ, who had all the privileges and dignity as God’s Son, set it all aside to serve the very rebels whose pitiful attempts at “self-actualization” had wrought hatred, misery, and death. He finally submitted to the most painful and shameful death imaginable – our word “excruciating” comes from the Latin ex cruce, “out of the cross”. He did this so that we, by identifying ourselves with his death, may put to death our own “self-actualizing”, destructive lusts and love and serve God and others.

  2. Wow! Very well put… Thank you for your well thought out and researched comment. Very well done. Your information has helped me organize my thoughts and will help me debate against the lie of “self-actualization” God bless.

  3. Current events lead me to extend a special invitation for tonight’s lesson… Location details on the link.

    Join us tonight for Lesson 9 – The State: Whose Law?

    This session deals with the spheres of the state, politics, and law (right up my alley!)…

    On this, the ninth of twelve worldview tours of The Truth Project, we will take a close and careful look at how these spheres are interconnected and how they relate to other aspects of the social realm: family, church, labor, community, and the relationship between God and man. Special attention will be given to the design, structure, and role of the state, its place in God’s plan for human society, and the rightful extent and limits of its power. The state, as we will see, has the capacity to exert a tremendous power for good in the affairs of mankind as long as it operates within its proper boundaries; but it also has the potential to become the most horrendously pathological and abusive of all the social spheres if not kept in check.
