‘Common sense is not so common.’ -Voltaire
Fortunately, this claim is untrue. Common sense is universal to mankind. Sure, that statement is tautological, but only to thoroughly express the claim that: Everybody has common sense because God made them up-right and in His image.
The disconnect between what Scripture says about human nature and with the observing of human nature begins with the fact that people must actively choose ‘common nonsense’ because they cannot handle the implications of the common sense that God granted them. Sense would not allow them to reject God and his righteousness while simultaneously rejecting false gods and their civil societies. So, they must lie. They must to pretend to give up the truth in order to pretend to be dumb in order to pretend to be comfortable. They must lie, even to the point of usurping their God-given common sense. In doing so, they usurp God as their god and choose politicians as their gods to rule over them instead. They must even lie about the nature and desires of God, making Jesus compatible with their patriotism or their political pursuits.
So God gives them up to their pretense, realizing their self-delusions. When they reject the law of God that washes the inside of the cup, in favor of the legal systems of men which wash the outside of the cup only, they earn for themselves a debased mind, which invariably justifies the perverse justice of bureaucratic, legislative backpedaling into an acrimonious disorder and confusion that we call damnation.
It is common sense that anarchy does not lead to chaos. What it does do is reject the fundamental sins of outsourcing your God-given responsibilities to love your neighbor and execute justice and show mercy and provide for the needy to the satanic cabal of human civil government that exercises authority over society while pretending to play benefactor. Anarchy prevents chaos through moral fidelity to social virtues.
The (un)righteousness of false gods in tailor-made suits with partisan politics, corridors of power, and campaign managers will invariably destroy a society. When you have man-made authority and contracted welfare-through-taxation, you do not need family to hold you accountable or charity to sustain you. When you have anaerobic departments of ‘peacekeepers’ and military subsidized by forced contributions, you do not need voluntary self-sacrifice to protect your neighbor, your children, or yourself.
‘Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one: for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries BY A GOVERNMENT, which we might expect in a country WITHOUT GOVERNMENT, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.’ -Thomas Paine, Common Sense
Do you find abortion to be wicked, homosexuality an abomination, imperialism to be revolting? You still have a conscience. Do you find human civil government to be an efficacious instrument to improve society? You have lost your common sense.
