    1.The Bible, to the amusement of secularists, points out that human beings have free will, and can use it to better themselves, and the world.

    For Leftists, one need not strive to better oneself, after all the great god, government, will take care of you from cradle to grave. And…make no mistake: government is their god.



    2. “Even if one does not consider the liberal administrations of the recent past fascist, Mr. Goldberg is correct to see the liberalism of today to be state worship, which built upon the original statist liberalism of the Wilson administration. Mr. Goldberg has, unlike the leftists who yell the term, made the strongest possible case that Americans today live in a soft form of fascism, a statist liberal society whose citizens are unaware of the roots of ideas they hold.” America's 'Fascist Moment' A review of Liberal Fascism




    3. Now let’s get to the lesson in Genesis 4:7

    “Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”

    “The statement “yet you can be its master” is one of the Torah’s most important statements. It means we have moral free will. That we can rule over our desire to do wrong is the most empowering idea in life. The only way we can end bad behavior….actions that are either destructive to others or to ourselves—is to first recognize that we “can be its master.” Dennis Prager


    We on the Right refer to it as ‘personal responsibility.’


    Liberals have a very different view,…put your faith in government.
    “ We try and discourage people from self help." – Former MASS A.G. Coakley



    4. The corollary to free will is discipline, self-control.
    “That many parents work harder to instill self-esteem than self-control in their children is a moral tragedy. And, ironically, no self-esteem can equal the self-esteem that derives from self-control.” Prager



    Included in Genesis 4:7… be its master …is the recognition of God’s special accommodations toward mankind:
    Generous to a fault.....so to speak.
    It is deeply important to understand the two most human gifts, intelligence and free will.
    ...at the heart of religion....and by religion I mean the Judeo-Christian faith.....
    ....is free will.



    And that free will is animated by, and requires the application of the gift of intelligence.

    So why didn't God like vegetables? So God, who is all wise, committed dissention among families.

    everyone knows Prager's life is not to be followed.

    You've linked to the OP, which is about the free will gifted to human beings, and you post

    "So why didn't God like vegetables?"



    I believe we now have conclusive evidence that you are, intellectually,.......a vegetable.




    Now....watch out for the Jolly Green Giant, y'hear!

    5. Among the excuses from the Left, for poor behavior, is to simply claim that it is a medical or biological condition, that can’t be controlled.

    WHY LIBERALS LOVE THE DISEASE THEORY OF ADDICTION, BY A LIBERAL WHO HATES IT

    The disease model is convenient to liberals because it spares them having to say negative things about poor communities. But this conception of addiction harms the very people we wish to help.”
    https://psmag.com/social-justice/liberals-love-disease-theory-addiction-liberal-hates-91098


    “It is widely believed that addiction entails a loss of free will, even though this point is controversial among scholars. There is arguably a downside to this belief, in that addicts who believe they lack the free will to quit an addiction might therefore fail to quit an addiction.” Ordinary people associate addiction with loss of free will - ScienceDirect




    An “addiction,” for Liberals, obviates free will.

    And empowers government to step in, the growth of government that is the hallmark of Liberalism.

    Democrats feel that self-help only means taking care of your body.
    Democrats feel that helping yourself means helping yourself to somebody else's cash and or property.
    Democrats don't like anyone who dares to look out for themselves.....except when they make a generous donation to the Democrat Party.
    Democrats want to tax the shit out of us.....except when it comes to their millionaire and billionaire friends.
    Give a statement trashing Trump or Bush and you get a get out of jail free card.

    Commies want to completely replace the bible with their big government, not just choose one over the other. The bible represents a moral standard that they do not want to be compared to.
