Cultural elites = the people who control the lives of other people of subordinate nature.
Worldviews = the nomenclature used to convince other people the cultural elite knows what is best for everyone else.
Worldviews that dominant your life:
Egalitarianism = Equal rights for every person in every detail of life. For example, Dabney prophesied (circa) 1880, “Society shall disregard all the natural distinctions of the sexes.” After much discussion on the “Women’s Rights” controversy Dabney said, “And last: the State has committed the crowning outrage and inconsistency of not letting her be a man because God made her a woman.” For those of you who use logical reasoning, taken to its logical end, the State will ultimately declare the egalitarian principle: Men and women no longer exist; there are no conjugal distinctions. The long standing biblical and historical familial principle that builds larger societies comes to an end. Oh! That’s what’s happening today! Dabney’s dead, but he was right. If you happen to read Dabney’s 5 vol. set titled Discussions (circa 3000 pages), you will understand how western civilization got in this cultural mess.
Victimizationalism = This is a passive worldview that was popularized by the therapeutic generation accompanied by a litigious society. It is a world- view void of any biblical understanding. The basic assumption behind victimizationalism is the goodness and worth of self. It is built on the unbiblical notion that “I am and there is not one else besides me” (Isaiah 47:10). This unbiblical destructive worldview essentially says, “When something bad happens to me it is the fault of someone else. On a practical level the alleged victim says, “Since it is their fault, they must pay me some money.”
Now Christians, let’s hear the rest of the story. The Bible says, “Each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin…” (James 1:14, 15). The sin nature always puts the blame on someone else just like Eve said, “the Devil made me do it” (Genesis 3:8-13). The unbiblical therapeutic enterprise attempts to avoid the sin problem and dwell on the goodness of man. They would do well to dwell on the goodness of God and the badness of man.
