How to discern if we really have a soul, and are we being conned by Wokeism?
A Chicago Tribune Victor David Hanson Op-Ed titled: The systemic con behind
Wokeism, contained this conundrum statement.
“America is systematically being conned by those who disguise their hypocrisy, who manipulate the guilt-ridden, who have no interest in solving America’s most dangerous problems, and who get or stay richer by hyping an America in need of massive rebooting – and with it their own careerist remedies.”
Do Humans have a Soul? – Google
“Humans are composed of three parts, a body, soul, and spirit. This is called trichotomism. b. Humans are composed of two parts. This is called dualism, and there are two versions here, a body and a soul or a body and a mind. c. Humans are composed of one “part”: a physical body. This can be called either materialism or physicalism.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient King Solomon wisdom proverbs as a conundrum of the religious faith and trichotomism beliefs that humans have a soul in a series of posts.
The posts will relate ancient wisdom to our contemporary times after the “Great Awakening” period of philosophers, along with the reality of current economic theories by USA politician’s approval to allow for the USA to accumulate the present 28 trillion-dollar National Debt and quantitative easing.
King Solomon – 1 Kings 3 – Excerpts
9 So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?”
10 The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. 13 Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both wealth and honor—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings. 14 And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life.” 15 Then Solomon awoke—and he realized it had been a dream.
What’s My Point?
The Op-ed opinion implies that the leaders of wokeism are being hypocrites by personally profiting and obtaining wealth as a result of their activism.
However, if we discern the above Kings 3 verse 13, it implies that God gifted King Solomon with wealth and honor.
My point is to question if we should judge activists as being hypocrites for personally profiting from their activism and perhaps offer a clue for everyone to discern in our contemporary times knowing we all are certain to die in time.
In My Next Post
I will explore the following wisdom proverb to add another clue to this conundrum.
It is Yahweh’s blessing which brings wealth, and there is no increase of vexation with it. (Proverb 10:22)
