Albert Mohler recently described the trial of mass-murderer Anders Behring Breivik as one of the greatest tests of human justice in decades. Breivik stood in an Oslo courtroom and admitted to the killing "but not to the guilt.â€ Mohler adds: "Breivik has celebrated his murderous actions in court, calling his massacre the most â€œspectacularâ€ event in recent European history. Having admitted to the killings, Breivik told the court, â€œI would do it again.â€ (The Post-Christian Condition â€” Anders Breivik and the Limitations of Justice, albertmohler.com)
Since Norwegian law only allows Breivik to be imprisoned for 21 years, even if found guilty of all 77 killings, Breivik will be given the opportunity to kill again.
"How can this be? What sane nation would allow for a maximum sentence of 21 years in prison for premeditated murder â€” much less the calculated killing of 77 people?" (ibid)
The Scandinavian nations are not only the most radically secularized but utterly post-Christian as well. In rejecting the Christian worldview they have lost the unique concept of man as God's spiritual image-bearer which in turn gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," said Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar. Mangalwadi adds that the belief in the unique dignity of human beings is,
"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, pp. 12-13)
As with all of the post-Christian West, the Christian worldview has been replaced by an evolutionary way of thinking. Breivik is a rabid Darwinian and like his evolutionary brethren he stresses that evolutionary science trumps religion:
â€œAs for the Church and science, it is essential that science takes an undisputed precedence over biblical teachings.â€ (ibid)
Evolution reduces man to the animal kingdom and ultimately makes him no different from any other animal. In many cases it makes man less valuable than other creatures, notably spotted owls, alligators, wolves, sea turtles, eagles and other 'species' dubbed 'endangered.'
Thus today there are vastly greater penalties for any human animal who breaks or touches endangered turtle eggs than for killing an unborn baby.
Having rejected its' Christian worldview the West and America are not moving forward toward something new and better as so many deluded Westerners believe. No, the West and America are fast-forwarding to the past:
"Historically, before the advent of Christianity,cannibalism was widespread. The flesh pots outside the walls of ancient cities were repositories of the bodies of the dead, cooked for the ingestion of the poorest of the poor. Throughout the ages, beyond the boundaries of the spread of the Gospel, peoples ate each other in the cruel delusion that they would thereby triumph over their enemies and incorporate the strengths of their enemies into themselves. Thus, the Aztecs consumed tens of thousands in their perverted quest for power. However, wherever the Gospel was preached, cannibalism was abolished as men were born again to see with new eyes the sancitity of life." (Ted Baehr quoted in "What If Jesus Had Never Been Born? D. James Kennedy, p. 24)
In the name of progress, modernity, enlightened 'thinking' and evolutionary science (process philosophy) foolish Westerners and Americans have unwittingly reduced themselves to the level of tree frogs, tumble bugs and lizards. And just as all creatures are genetically programmed, meaning they must do what their instincts dictate, from public copulation to killing and eating each other, so too must the human animal. And this was the biological view held by the homosexual sadomasochist Alfred Kinsey.
Kinsey (1894â€”26-1956) was a sex researcher who waged a private war against Biblical morality. He has been described as having an influence on modern society greater than almost anybody else, as his so-called 'scientific' findings have become the underpinnings of much of America's law and cultural views regarding pornography, consensual sex, homosexuality, lesbianism, and of course child sexuality, which Kinsey held began almost from birth.
Kinsey's evolutionary science is responsible for launching the 'gay' revolution as well as aiding and abetting the molestation of babies, tots and older children:
"(Facebook) has become a den for pedophiles trading graphic images, according to a new report. An exposÃ© published by WND.com has revealed a disturbing amount of child pornography being shared by predators on the social network (including) photographs of children forced to have sex with each other, being raped by adults, and forced to expose their genitals to the camera." (Shocking Report Shows Child Porn Openly Traded on Facebook Despite Censorship Efforts, dailymail.co.uk)
Having nearly replaced its' Christian worldview with an evolutionary way of thinking, America is rapidly falling down the rabbit-hole after Scandanavia. Whereas madness will doubtless prevail in Scandanavia with regard to Anders Breivik, the same will occur here with regard to the Facebook sex predators. And why not? Man is no longer created in the image of the Triune God. He is but another species that can be used and abused by the State in whatever way it sees fit. And if the human animal can be penalized for breaking a turtle egg and killed in or out of the womb and cannibalized for body parts, then he can be cannibalized by sex predators.
