How Theology Dictates Political Systems: An Extract from the Deductive Unification of Anthropocentric Knowledge

by Dallas F. Bell, Jr.

Abstract: The finite human intellect struggles with common cosmic questions of who, why, where, when, and how. This pursuit need not be chaotic. Knowledge can be deductively and anthropocentrically unified. The framework for a simple model begins with binary singularities of theology, extending along two distinct epistemological vectors and enclosed in human and sociological parametrics, resulting in opposing eschatological magnitudes. One valuable extract provides the answer of many honest and intelligent individuals concerning how their theology dictates correlating political systems. From that endeavor emerges systematic political science. Its fundamentals are reinforced by the collation of other systematic sciences. Conversely, they are also symbiotically enhanced. Many more solutions can be found by this geometric triangulation of existing knowledge, all of which will inductively point back to the core of the quantum mind within every soul— the reality of God almighty.

Suspended in infinity, our particle universe expands. We understand the relationship of those particles, space, and movement by the concept of time. Because each succession of moments is unique, time is linear. Laws of thermodynamics stipulate this condition to be an entropic dimension of eternity. Quantum realities soon will cease to be the mechanism by which mortals display individual choices of good and evil.

What is good? What is evil? Do they exist beyond man’s consciousness? What is their relevance? All people at some point in life ponder these cosmic questions. Many people will find this time of questioning to be a chaotic experience. Academia, for the necessary purpose of specialization, has thus far separated schools of study.

Lost in this honest quest for knowledge is the connectiveness of all truth. Only an omniscient God could understand all things perfectly. Finite beings can, however, anthropocentrically unify by deduction what we are capable of perceiving. The opening statement of this article reflects, both directly and indirectly, the collation of many sciences. Having begun with physics, it systematically concludes with theological implications, thereby inductively demonstrating the origin of all ideas—God. Even the physics observations themselves contain theological elements. Therefore, a credible model for unification must begin with the queen of science—theology.

The systematic study of deity commences with two possibilities. This binary notion of God either is or is not one of perfection who created for beauty and practicality. If it is the former, the divine attributes of omnipresence, omniscience, immutability, inerrancy, infinity, and eternity are applicable to His behavior of love and justice. This agape love includes benevolence toward all and mercy for toward those who violate divine law. Justice, for the necessary administration of creation, rectitudinally punishes all who intentionally or unintentionally break divine law. It is also punitive because God’s holiness and goodness was violated.

The equation of merciful love and punitive justice are balanced by willed grace. Humans could never relate to such perfect righteousness, or good, because of their unholy behavior. Grace bridges this relational gap. Based on God’s conditions for forgiveness, it would be afforded to everyone equally. On the other hand, the alternative is an imperfect god who is neither immutable nor inerrant and who created inefficiently. The attributes could range from omniscience and acknowledge natural law violations, dominated by willed rectitudinal justice over merciful love, or willed benevolent love over punitive justice, to being a mechanical or detached force void of either willed justice or love who created out of self, meaning that all is part of god, thus eliminating both the free will of man to violate laws and a need for love or justice. One must relate to such graceless gods by one’s attempts to do good and become godlike. Good would be defined as legalistic adherence to divine law, or moderately acknowledging natural law, or relative to individual interpretation, respectively. Either the perfect God is consciously chosen or the unbalanced god is accepted by default.

Through this singularity distinct vectors of epistemology systematically project. Information is taken in by the senses both consciously and subconsciously and processed with past input for future use in one of two directions. The first way emanates from a perfect God with a balanced theology. Something cannot be both true and untrue simultaneously. This fact proves the existence of absolute truth, and finite minds can know it outright by the mean of our ability and extremes of potential infinity that is knowable only to God. The divide between all truth and the limited amount of truth that we can comprehend is joined by faith in the source of ultimate truth, the attributes of a chosen deity of absolutes. Seeking to identify truth would be based on the same graceful balance of love and justice. Good is defined by submission to those findings. This self-denying attribute is rational.

The second vector is constructed from an unbalanced god of justice, love, or force. Faith in those deity’s characteristics is also necessary to accommodate learning. Belief in a god of justice requires robotic identification and obedience of natural law without regard to merciful love. A believer in a god of love acknowledges natural laws short of the concept of punitive justice. Those who have a god of force may accept or reject natural law as it relates to their circumstances. Neither of these views, however, provides a balance for defining good; therefore, they must have an irrational, self-serving approach to absolutes. Realities contrary to their desires require alteration or denial. The result is cognitive dissonance and perpetual conflict with rationality.

These two vectors are confined by human parametrics, the need levels that are common to all mankind. In ascending order, they are survival, economic security, love and affection, status and self-esteem, and self-actualization. Once a lower need level is perceived to have been achieved, advancement is made toward the next need level. Individual perceptions reflect physiology—which includes psychology and is gender specific—experiences, environment potential, and category of intelligence (i.e. either gifted with inventive ability and twice the problem-solving skills as the average intellect, who can’t invent but can use inventions to manipulate their surroundings to achieve needs, or the lower level, who have only half their ability and require constant supervision to manipulate the environment).

How needs are met is determined most by whether one is rational or irrational. Individuals who are rational survive by trusting and serving a God of love and justice who provides fairly. Economic security is an opportunity to help others achieve their needs. Love and affection are achieved by loving and serving others. Status and self-esteem are evidenced by a greater maturity in an obedient personal relationship with God. Self-actualization is a state of joy and peace from a balanced understanding of God’s perfect grace. Self-actualization contentment can be attained during survival-level circumstances.

Individuals who are irrational, on the other hand, meet survival needs with violence. Their attempt at economic security is characterized by greed. They express love and affection through lust. Status and self-esteem is achieved by gaining power over others. Self-actualization produces the highest focus on defying realities and ultimately yields self-destruction and death. Man’s free will to chose good or evil at any time does not permit either the rational person or the irrational person always to reflect their respective cores perfectly. This failure of perfect rationality is the source of innocent human suffering. Human parametrics are enclosed in societal parametrics. To meet human needs, all people interact within the ascending institutions of family, church, business, and government. Rational individuals view the family as divine marriage between one woman and one man for life to procreate and to share love. Church is the nonhiearchial worship of God and divine collection of efforts to meet the needs of the community. Business is the efficient exchange of labor expertise. The divine purpose of government is to protect the other three institutions from individuals who are irrational. To demonstrate and ensure that all people are equal before God is democratic. A republic conforms irrational tendencies to the rule of natural law and representationally acknowledges that decisions of daily governance necessitate the election of full-time officials to orchestrate the institution efficiently. Irrational individuals approach the concept of family from a purely procreative or sexual perspective. For them church is hierarchial or even nonexistent. Business is an opportunity to control others or is nonexistent. Government ranges from authoritarian forms to anarchy. Human and societal parametrics develop eschatological magnitudes. Rational individuals recognize the entropic nature of the universe and realize that God must lovingly intercede to deliver the just from eventual destruction by the unjust. Life beyond death includes a balance of heaven, for those who are forgiven, and the privilege to worship God and increase exponentially in grace and joy forever, and hell for those who are unforgiven because they rejected grace and are punitively doomed to increase exponentially in pain and hopelessness for rectitudinal eternity. The irrational individuals who have a god of justice expect that destruction will soon come to everyone who violates natural law and that such people will be cast forever into hell. But they think only they have managed to do good and will be in heaven forever. Those who have a god of love assume that there is no hell and that everyone will be delivered eventually to heaven. A detached god or force cannot or will not help, so utopia on earth will result eventually in man’s becoming enlightened and unrestrained by natural law. The cognitive dissonance that irrational individuals choose in disregarding rational eschatology is a merciful ability that prevents their awareness of the eternal future that awaits them in hell. Acknowledging this just reality would quickly deplete neurotransmitters from the stress of rejecting grace and lead to psychotic collapse.

Based upon this brief sketch of the model, all sciences can make their reinforcing contribution at the appropriate position. In turn, they, too, will be enhanced symbiotically. One such area of study is obviously political science. Specific theology can be traced systematically by causation to the corresponding social parametric of government. Although individuals in society operate at ascending and descending need levels, the societal average will usually become the dominate societal level. Intelligence agencies fail to analyze and predict the behavior of other nation-states, and benevolent international organizations continue to offer rational support to irrational societies, thereby squandering valuable resources by not understanding the fact that theology clearly dictates political systems.

Untruth exists only in finite minds, so truth adhered to by the rational members will empower them to exert more influence per person and per institution than the irrational individuals. No person or society will be perfectly rational, therefore, no computer program or faultless prediction process will be attainable. Time frames for societal levels are affected by internal and external stimuli from crises such as natural disasters and war, which are inevitable, and contingencies can be generally calculated. Unique natural resources, history of rationality and irrationality, and mean of intelligence levels weigh heavily on potential for achievement.

Despite differing components, all societies’ domestic and external policies begin at the survival level. Depending on the ratio of rational to irrational individuals in society as identified by ideologically compatible political party affiliations, one of three chosen paths is predetermined to occur. The first path is based on the assumption that the society is dominated by rational individuals. Families form for love and procreation. Churches are established for the collective worship of God and to help the community meet it’s individual needs. Both the family and the church teach sciences with a rational theological emphasis. Because of free enterprise, business is built to produce basic products in an equitable exchange of labor. Emulating God’s balance of love and justice, the society will be governed by a democratic representative republic that guarantees divine human rights including the right to life, self-defense, speak and worship freely, and private ownership of property. Understanding the inevitability of irrational influences, the society will establish a system of checks and balances by separating government into three areas of responsibility. The executive branch, whose chief is elected by a majority of voters, operates the government agencies. The elected legislature affirms the election of the chief executive and makes the law. The judiciary is elected or appointed by the chief executive and confirmed by the legislature to interpret those laws and enforce them using an appellate process. The rational premise for human administered justice is one must be assumed innocent until proven guilty.

As a result of the efficiency of compliance to natural law, the economic security level of society will soon be reached. The institutions of family, church, and business will increase their ability to help others. Hospitals will be built, and education will be formalized. The government will improve the infrastructure.

During the next level of love and affection, life expectancy rates are the highest. Commerce and science will greatly advance in this renaissance. The rational church’s mission to expand into irrational societies and convert their irrational theology can grow. This is the apex for rationality.

To this point, many individuals behaved rationally because of the immediate negative consequences of violating natural law and the cultural examples of success by rational individuals in obeying those laws. They will, however, become increasingly allied with the openly irrational individuals. For instance, they will allow government to exceed its divine authority to protect and administer justice and punishment by adding to it the church’s divine authority for collective benevolence. Charity is based on free will, but taxation forces producers to give to nonproducers as the government dictates. Irrational individuals immigrate from their irrational societies for the handouts, thereby forming a voting block for the irrational party. Capital punishment is eased. Rational laws are neutralized and irrational laws added by a willing judiciary that is dominated by irrational individuals who are drawn to the profession by the power it gives over others. Supported by the media, which are also largely made up of power seekers, the societal path is altered downward toward irrationality. This paradigm shift is evidenced in art, sports, and humor, which change from reflecting joy and peace to focusing on inharmoniously irrational characteristics of lust and power. The government-controlled educational system de-emphasizes grammatical rules necessary for a common language. The government will proscribe the teaching of rational theology. The rational purpose for war (i.e., to stop the violation of natural laws and restore order) will no longer be supported. The inefficiency of the socialist government will drop it to the level of status and self-esteem.

An irrational need for power will dominate societal institutions. The power conflicts between men and women and between young and old will split the family unit. Churches will become hierarchical to control members. Workers and employers will struggle for dominance, thereby producing inflation and uncompetitive products. The federal government will compete with local governments for supreme authority. Taxes will be used to sponsor government art. Productive citizens will resist increasing confiscation of revenues to support the growing bureaucracies. All taxpayers will be assumed to be guilty until proven innocent. Incentives for worker productivity will decrease, thereby depleting the economy of wealth from the exchange of labor and its reinvestment. Government education will prevent the teaching of natural laws or historical proof of the superiority of rational theology.

Politicians will exploit the conflicting groups for political gain. They will promise to dismantle the remaining natural laws, especially divine human freedoms, thereby creating even more irrational political parties. Given to bribery, domestic and foreign interest groups will form to gain favor with the corrupt officials. Wars will be waged to expand power over people and regions. Illiteracy and crime will increase. Many otherwise rational individuals will behave irrationally culturally, intentionally conforming to the zeitgeist or from their ignorance of a completely rational theology.

The last level, self-actualization, is characterized by the murder of the weak, innocent, and rational minority unless they resist or flee. Illiteracy and disease increase, and life expectancy is lowered. The soaring divorce rate will create numerous orphans who choose to become psychopathic because they have never witnessed or been taught true love. Church is seen as irrelevant. Businesses are destabilized by the greed of both employers and workers. Inflation is rampant, and the black-market will supply consumer demands and fuel criminal enterprises. The government will have filled the void for divine authority, changing human rights to privileges that officials may permit or deny as suits them. Such a society is the most belligerent but it does not have an economy or the selfless soldiers to sustain a prolonged conflict.

The second path is dominated by legalistic compliance to natural law. The survival level is marked by violence. Families are formed for procreation. Churches are hierarchical. Business supplies basic needs as the government permits. The government is based on an unloving god of justice and is centralized and authoritarian. Only the elite have divine freedoms or are educated, and only they are allowed to produce art. They will increase in life expectancy as their subjects decrease. Illiterate citizens are assumed to be guilty until proven innocent, and capital punishment is used not only rectitudinally and rationally against the guilty but also irrationally to prevent rational opposition. Government will control the media to change historical truth to conform to its irrational theology.

Enough natural law is enforced to permit partial achievement of economic security. Families will begin to deteriorate from a lack of love. The church will become less relevant. Business lacks productive workers or owners whose incentives are derived only from the freedom to meet one’s own needs. Inflation and the black-market dominate the economy. The government continues to seize all privately created wealth.

This condition was the highest level of rationality. Next, in love and affection, the institutions of family, church, business, and government are dominated by lust. Status and self-esteem are characterized by the acquisition of power over 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 acknowledgment of natural law. The authority for its laws lies not with the divine but with the self. This fact, coupled with the absence of the selflessness necessary to bind the individual members of a society, prevent formation of complex institutions. Such a society will be tribal, clannish, and gang-like and doomed never to rise above a collective survival level. Individuals are violent, acting out of fear, hate, vengeance, and envy and having the lowest possible life expectancy. Greed, lust, power, and murder express individual economic security, love and affection, status and self-esteem, and self-actualization, respectively. Without the existence of the restraining influence of some rational individuals and institutions, as are present in the other paths, self-destructive behavior is extreme. Such a diseased, illiterate, and zoomorphic society is dominated and characterized by human addictions, cannibalism, nudity, assign human attributes to animals, tattooing, use of mind-altering drugs, trance-inducing chants, nonrhythmic music, ritual dance, theft by gambling, astrology, witchcraft, sorcery, fortune telling, totem idolatry, human sacrifice, and evil spirit 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 revolution to gain power over another irrational system. As is evident in the successful treatment of individual addictions, or irrationality, the first step toward healing, or rationality, is the admission of the reality of God and His loving and just power over one’s life. The same fact is true for societies. The more rational the theology at the formation of a society, the more potential the citizens have to meet their needs efficiently.

These observations concerning political systems can be verified by data (especially historical data) that are attached to differing aspects of the abstract of unification herein presented. Historical assertions can also be tested for accuracy. For example, Jesus lived 2,000 years ago and claimed to be God. By all accounts, we know that He was perfectly selfless and ultimately died willingly for the atonement of others, thereby demonstrating divine grace. He sought only to glorify the perfectly balanced sovereign God, the Father, of love and justice, exposing false gods as satanic. Unlike all the rest of mankind, not once did He deviate from a rational course of human needs. He must then have been theanthropos, just as the inerrant Bible recorded that He professed Himself to be.

Yet this rational and empirical proof still requires faith. If anyone chooses this faith and repents, Jesus said that he would by grace reside in heaven with Him forever. That one such decision is evidenced by his selfless service to others when and how the Holy Spirit prompts. By any standard this condition and result is rational and perfect good and suggests the following syllogistic conclusion that any intellect can understand: because we must serve a deity, and it is appointed unto man once to die and after this the judgement, why not choose to serve the true God before time ends? Additional realities can be made visible from further geometric triangulation of existing knowledge, all of which will point inductively to the core of the quantum mind within every soul—the reality of God almighty.
