What is the second clue of why righteousness will persevere over evil in time.

In the previous post I stated I will explore the second clue of how one can readily determine what is righteous, or what is evil, philosophically or politically.

King Solomon

Now all has been heard;
here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
for this is the duty of all mankind.
14 For God will bring every deed into judgment,
including every hidden thing,
whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12: 13:14)
 

If you discern every failure and passing in history of a person or nation, over time, you will discover a failure to keep His Commandments.

Why?

Because mankind is in a war of our own choosing between righteousness and evil. Whether you are a person of faith, secular, or atheist, there is no other conclusion than to discern this as an undeniable fact. Over history, every cause or effect, whether good or bad in outcome, has been the result of our own making, (1) and can be linked to our failure of duty to obey one or more of the Ten Commandments.

Second Clue 

Granted no humankind is perfect and lived up to all of the Ten Commandments. If everyone did, our world would be at best be Utopia, or in the very least a far better place.

However, there is one grave Commandment, that if broken, can be readily discerned and linked to failure.  If you discern history and link this fact, you can readily determine what is righteous, or what is evil philosophically or politically.

Which Commandment? 

The gravest and most readily obvious to discern is the Sixth Commandment, not to murder another human. There has never been in history any, philosophy or nation that survived over time when murder was used, or condoned to gain or maintain power.

Philosophically, people of faith may contest that breaking the First Commandment is more grave, which is to recognize that there is a God.  Their reason is if you have real faith in a Christian God, you would never consider or contemplate murder another in the first place.

In My Next Post 

I will explore the definition of the words perseverance, murder, and duty in relation to the conclusion statement in King Solomon’s Ecclesiastes.

Regards and goodwill blogging.
