(Disclaimer: This is a HIGHLY politically incorrect, controversial post. If you are the type to be politically correct, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK of being offended. If you have issues with articles like this, then kindly don’t read it, but let me at least point out this much: Dr. King was politically incorrect. Guess what? He didn’t care. He valued God’s opinion above others’, including even that of the government. He knew all human lives mattered and are equal. And yes, he was arrested. Yes, he was eventually assassinated. But you know something? This year, I’ve resolved to be a bit more like him: to speak out against wrongs, despite the fact if they’re politically correct or not, despite the fact that I might very well indeed get bashed over the head for it. But I’ll take those people’s opinions of me with a grain of salt– because King was right; God’s opinion is what truly matters.)
When Martin Luther King Jr spoke the words, “I have a dream,” he obviously didn’t mean a physical, nighttime dream– he meant a metaphorical dream. And a beautiful, idealistic dream at that– that no one would be judged by their appearance or ethnicity, and we could all worship God together, as a whole. What a wonderful dream that is!
While I too, have a dream, I have also HAD a physical nighttime dream. Or, to be more precise– a nightmare. One that awoke in me a fierce and burning desire to jar me into speaking out… oh, but you’ll see in a minute.
In the dream, I was a sort of omnipotent presence hovering around a most horrid sight: In someone’s machine shed, scientists with lab coats and clipboards bustled over desk-high machines up atop a large platform. Several were looking anxiously below. Below, on the ground, were two girls, friends, who had evidently been drugged and kidnapped as a part of a heinous experiment. They stood, facing each other. One of the girls had some sort of IV in her arm, running a green fluid into her system, and a fiendish helmet upon her head, with heat-sensing goggles. Both were awake. The scientists commenced their experimentation, then, switching on the helmet and handing the helmeted girl a gun. From beneath the girl’s helmet, I could see from her perspective what she could see: She saw her friend, her dear friend, as little more than a vicious, snarling animal ready to attack her, despite her friend’s desperate pleas (“It’s me! Don’t you recognize me?!”). Using the heat-sensing goggles to find her friend’s weakest spot, the helmeted girl lifted the gun– and fired at her friend’s head, to the wicked delight of the scientists.
Naturally, when I awoke, I was horrified. Outraged. And scared to pieces. But then the meaning, the symbolism of it all, struck me like that bullet just then.
The scientists are Satan and his cronies. They inject society with lies, partially because they are lazy and want the job to get done quicker, and find it easier to have us turn against each other and destroy one another, rather than have them directly do it themselves. Look at the KKK, in King’s time. Look at the Nazis. Look at (yes, I am fully aware of this controversial topic, but, as I said, I am a highly politically incorrect and controversial person. You have been warned. Repeatedly.) Planned Parenthood (fun fact: its founder, Margaret Sanger, was incredibly racist, an atheist, an evolutionist, and a firm believer in eugenics– that is, the “cleansing” of society of the “unwanted”. The physically, mentally, and socially impaired. “Impure” races. In fact, this is the very reason so many Planned Parenthoods are established in black neighborhoods– back then and today. If this truth did not disgust and appall you as it did me, well….). All of these cult followings have one thing in common: devaluing human life, or at least, certain human lives. The lie, “The weak people are killed off in “natural selection” while other, stronger members climb to the top of society at the weaker ones’ expense” is total and and absolute balderdash. Making us out to be nothing more than “highly evolved” animals, which couldn’t be further from the truth. In 1 Corinthians 15:39, in fact, it states, “All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds.” (NKJV, emphasis added), which shows us exactly what God thinks of macro-evolutionary thinking.
We are all HUMAN. We ALL hold GREAT VALUE in the eyes of our CREATOR, Who loves us enough to LITERALLY DIE for us. Each and EVERY one of us. So much for the “weaker, less valuable ones”. So much for “natural selection” in humankind.
The bottom line is, the more you start thinking of yourself or others as nothing more than animals (“highly evolved” or otherwise), or less than human, the more liable it is that you will start treating yourself or others as animals or less than human. The girl in my dream didn’t recognize her friend as human, she saw her as an animal– and, more stomach-churning, she shot her like one. No one, I repeat, NO ONE with ANY ethical/moral compass at all will want to treat themselves or other people like that. No one. But a good many handfuls of people who possess this worldview (not all) are slaughtering other people– their OWN FLESH AND BLOOD (we’re all descended from Noah)– as we speak because they believe they are so-called “superior” racially, “more highly evolved,” etc. And it MUST stop.
My metaphorical dream, like King’s, is that we will all be valued as God’s Image Bearers, as HUMAN BEINGS. That we all will realize this truth someday, and start committing ourselves to it. That we are all created EQUAL, and are ALL loved EQUALLY by an all-loving, all- knowing, all-powerful Creator King. And someday, I know that this dream, like King’s, will soon come true. Thank you.
“For no one is cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great his unfailing love. For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone. To crush underfoot all prisoners in the land, to deny people their rights before the Most High, to deprive them of justice– would not the Lord see such things?” Lament. 3:31-36
