How Theology Dictates Political Systems: An
Deductive Unification of Anthropocentric Knowledge
by Dallas F. Bell, Jr.
The finite human intellect struggles with common cosmic questions of
why, where, when, and how. This pursuit need not be chaotic. Knowledge
can be deductively and anthropocentrically unified. The framework

epistemological vectors and enclosed in human and sociological parametrics,
resulting in opposing eschatological magnitudes. One valuable

This condition was the highest level of rationality. Next, in
love and affection,
the institutions of family, church, business, and government are
lust. Status and self-esteem are characterized by the acquisition of
others, as was seen in the first path. It ends with the murderous
level of self-actualization.
The third and final path is an anarchical society that is nearly
devoid of the
of natural law. The authority for its laws lies not with the
but with the self. This fact, coupled with the absence of the
to bind the individual members of a society, prevent formation of
institutions. Such a society will be tribal, clannish, and gang-like
never to rise above a collective survival level. Individuals are
out of fear, hate, vengeance, and envy and having the lowest possible
expectancy. Greed, lust, power, and murder express individual
love and affection, status and self-esteem, and self-actualization,
Without the existence of the restraining influence of some rational
and institutions, as are present in the other paths, self-destructive
is extreme. Such a diseased, illiterate, and zoomorphic society is
characterized by human addictions, cannibalism, nudity, assign
attributes to animals, tattooing, use of mind-altering drugs, trance-inducing
chants, nonrhythmic music, ritual dance, theft by gambling,
sorcery, fortune telling, totem idolatry, human sacrifice, and evil
possession by the one whom they serve.
All three paths began from either a reformation to rational
theology, a revolution
to rationally escape irrational domination, or an irrational
power over another irrational system. As is evident in the
of individual addictions, or irrationality, the first step toward
is the admission of the reality of God and His loving and just power

unification herein presented. Historical assertions can also be
tested for accuracy.
