God refers to His people, the nation of Israel in the Old Testament as “stiff-neck people” (Exodus 32:9 & 34:9). He says this because, His people were stubborn in wanting to live their lives the way they wanted to regardless of any rules or laws or proper standard of behavior which the Lord desired to establish within their lifestyles. When we also take into consideration the type or people Jesus saw while He was on Earth- “sheep without a shepherd” (Mathew 9:36) we begin to realize that at a whole; we as a people of God are a gathering membership of lost souls. A nature of rebellious attitude towards authority and/or disobedience of living a lifestyle with laws and rules regulated by a supreme being.
Okay, I will be transparent. I am a man who is all for anarchy. At a very young, teenage period of my life, I saw myself as the black sheep within my family taking pride in being a prodigal son (which today I see the wisdom of not glorifying such a lifestyle). So, the mentality of “I want the freedom to do what I want to do” runs very deep within my character. Nevertheless, the desire for me to see myself righteous before my Lord runs a deeper path. The path of The Darkside of the Force of Nature is history and science without faith. We believe only what we can physically see and prove with our senses and/or our conscience. Faith is the evidence of things which we cannot see (Hebrew 11:1). The mentality of the Darkside is the exact opposite of this definition.
There is a level of respect when it comes to us as humans who addresses the Lord (our creator) Regardless of our personal beliefs or opinions, feelings, attitude, justification, doubts, worries & fears; God is God, and He is supreme and the creator as a being. If He sees fit to give us rules, laws, and commandments for us to live by, we as humans are bound buy a level of respect to obey this premise; no more than what we as parents would expect as household respect from our children. Evil is not the dominant outcome. The agreement to follow this disobedient will is what causes the condemnation of sin. Throughout generations such a mentality among humans have limited the spirit of faith to grow and prosper to bring a positive harvest.
“Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.”- Isaiah 59:1&2
The beliefs which support the philosophy of the Dark Force leads to a solid end of history or science base on a level of acceptance of faith. It is a belief system base on facts and principles outside the concepts of spiritual, logical, principles supported by faith.
It’s important to realize the moral I am illustrating. The pathway to the Darkside of the Force of Nature is a mentality. One who has such a thought process is not in themselves sinful. The fruit of sin has not yet developed based on the attitude of rebellious. The nature of sin is explained in the scriptures.
“When tempted, no one should say, ‘God is tempting me.’ For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempting when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown gives birth to death.”
Although I’m not going to write the scripture out within this article, Romans 7:1-20 also gives us a clear picture of the nature of sin. It will do you good to read this scripture.
Our lack of respect to try to live a lifestyle based on rules and regulations is the path that causes us to walk away from God’s Hands and establish an unrighteous lifestyle. We are not condemned by the nature of wickedness. We are bound by our weakness of our flesh to establish a life against God when we follow a pathway against God’s standards or nature or will. God does not punish us because we sin against Him. God establish the rules and regulations whereby that forced which grows against Him is judged and then convicted. Our freewill decides which side of that conviction we live our lifestyles.
