” Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.” (Matthew 27:38)
Although those in the Far-Right spectrum may not realize or admit it, ultimately the Far-Right at its most extreme end seeks the dictatorship of God.
This end goal is obscured because it is marketed on the Right not religiously, but in terms of concepts, such as law, natural order, responsibility, and traditional values. Nevertheless, by the proxy of these concepts what the Far-Right wants is that the world be forced to conform to the natural principles of Divine Righteousness.
In contrast, those along the Far-Left readily admit their end goal, which is the dictatorship of Man.
But the Lefties have a harder time defining and implementing their goal since it can be approached from two different directions, individually or collectively. Permissiveness for unnatural and abhorrent vices and the allowing bizarre expressions of self-delusion gives individuals a dictatorship over their own lives; but if mankind in total is to be served collectively, then all individual rights must be sacrificed on the altar of service to mankind’s dictatorship in the collective sense, hence socialism and communism.
The left serves man and debases God from his rightful place and glory; this is why the left wing is of the devil.
For the far Right, the contradiction between the individual and the group is less problematic since the obligations of all are already orderly defined by God’s natural laws.
The Right-Left division could be set forth in the great commandments.
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:37-40)
” And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.” (Deuteronomy 6:5)
” ¶ Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.” (Leviticus 19:18)
The first commandment must come first, this is why the right wing is correct and not the left wing. Serving man with mercy and charity is only correct after God has first been loved and obeyed.
Judas Iscariot inverted these two commandments, and became the betrayer of Christ, when he became indignant that valuable perfume was squandered on Jesus rather than given to the poor. The gospels give Christ’s response:
Matthew 26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
Mark 14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.
John 12:8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
John explains Judas’ true motivation was not for the poor, but for himself:
” This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.” (John 12:6)
So with all Lefties – they speak of the collective but their true interest is only self.
Mankind is pulled in these two directions, right and left, by the correctness of the two great commandments because every heresy has to be based on some truth to give it a foothold in people’s minds.
The ultimate solution is the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign as God’s right wing dictator – and secondarily as man’s left wing dictator. In Christ Jesus both absolute righteousness under God, and true mercy to all men, will find their correct order – with righteousness first. His kingdom is eternal.
” ¶ Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever. Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.” (1 Chronicles 29:10-12)
” I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness. They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness. The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom. Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations. The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them. The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.” (Psalms 145:1-21)
” And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” (Daniel 2:44)
