Remember being shown three pictures and being asked to select the one that was different. It was to teach you how to observe. I believe the power of observation comes naturally. Place two 14-month-old babies in a play-pen and give one a cookie and give the other nothing. It is almost guaranteed that the one with nothing will notice. The chances are all out war will ensue. The grabbing and pulling will begin first; then the screaming and yelling; and then the punching and finally all-out play pen war. It will not stop until the baby that was giving nothing is given a cookie or one of the babies eats the cookie in victory. It has been my experience that the former is most often the solution. At least one parent or caretaker adopts a policy of “what I do for one I must do for another.” It is from this mentality that a Socialist is born. A socialist cannot stand for one to have more than another. It is the cause of all the world’s evils for one to have more than another. They think all things must be fair and equal. Furthermore, they will proclaim with a self righteous voice “men should only have enough for their needs.” A socialist cannot bear to see anyone blessed. Socialism perceives men as babies always needing their oversight. God is NOT a socialist! Yehovah, from whom all blessings flow, often gives to one more than another. He has so much to impart. He imparts to some power, to others riches and to yet others strength. He imparts glory to those that give back to Him and that is His way. His way is hated by the socialist. Socialism treats men like babies in a play-pen. Yehovah does not. He is a just God, a loving God and He treats men as His kinsman. He rewards those who love Him. The Glory of God is made manifest in the contrast. The contrast between light and darkness is made profound when juxtaposed. Yehovah, my God, has put before each man liberty and that liberty is given so that he may choose between life and death. The socialist does not want anyone blessed more than another so liberty is not given to men. It is Yehovah who gives liberty. It is men with their ideology who endeavor to remove liberty. Such is the way of governments under the pretense of socialism.
I rejoice for my God is just and gives blessings, and honor and glory to men and I give Him blessings, and honor and glory. This is the relationship all men should have with Yehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
