Subjective Morality Vs Christian Beliefs
“In my online article, just as I argue how we degrade ourselves as spiritual beings by committing the sin of gluttony, the Exorcist emphasizes this core idea of how humans are soulless animals shaped by today’s culture. In the story, the demon asserts his control over Regan’s soul and shows that the priest cannot reclaim her soul for God when the demon proclaims, “The sow is mine!” (Blatty 114). The demon calls Regan a “sow” to dehumanize man as animals unworthy of God’s love. The cultural atmosphere during 1973, the time The Exorcist was released, included Roe v. Wade, which established the legal right for a woman to have an abortion, and a tweet by Richard Dawkin, a vocal proponent of atheism and the author of The God Delusion, that states “With respect to those meanings of “”human”” that are relevant to the morality of abortion, any fetus is less human than an adult pig. (Dawkins)” Just as how the culture in 1973 consisted of abortionists who were comparing fetuses to pigs during that time, today’s culture revolves around millennials today eating like pigs. No matter what time period we are in, our culture is turning us into soulless animals unable to realize the sins we are committing against God.
As my project evolved, I did not only want to open the eyes of Christian millenials of the sin of gluttony in their lives, but also reach a larger Christian audience and show them that our culture has grown antithetical to God and what the Bible says. Most notably, today we have a pervasive cultural abandonment of morality and think morality is subjective. For instance, today’s culture accepts homosexuality, so many Christians start believing that homsexuality is not a sin. While I am not saying for Christians not to accept homosexuals for who they are, I am saying God’s words are that homosexuality is a sin as found in Leviticus 18:22 stating, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” I want my Christian audience to know that we are not of the world, meaning we eat, live, and grow here, but we do not belong here. However, many of us become so comfortable with life on Earth that we allow the culture to consume us, changing the way we think and view things. With this in mind, let us not be animals that instinctively follow what our culture teaches us, but rather let us remind ourselves that we are in Christ and need to breakthrough from worldliness to godliness.”
