The Social Positivists

 the society for the advancement of positive knowledge 

Abstract

Positivists develop science-based solutions to our social problems based on the Four Pillars Of Progress.

Positivists advocate quantification over emotionalism.

Positivists believe the value of the planet at the macroeconomic level and the value of the local church at the local or microeconomic level define progress and  give us a way to quantify progress.

 

The two Cultures

Liberalism is a belief system that spans politics, economics and art. Liberalism promotes and is an advocate for human freedom as a first principle. Scripture is a diametrically opposed culture to liberalism.  

Social Positivists sees the state of the world as a conflict between the divide and rule strategies of liberalism and the truths of Scripture. Ultimately the question comes down to what truth is.

Social Positivism is Scripturally Fundamentalist and subscribes to a science-based sociology. Social Positivists believe ethics is rational and ethical living makes sense to a rational being. We believe in Sola Scriptura and that scripture always has the final say.

Social Positivists subscribe to the doctrine of the infallibility and sufficiency of Jesus and Scripture. It is the contention of Social Positivists that scripture contains all we need to know about the human condition. Social Positivists believes Scripture provides the foundation for human rights and that human rights serves as the key to understanding the right way to live.

Social Positivists believes in the sanctity of human rights. We believe God loves humanity and, in this love, gave us inalienable rights. Cultures that support the rights of man progress. God loves progress because progress is the outcome of obedience to God's Will. Progress is defined as value added to the world. This is in accordance to the principles of Dominionism and Stewardship both Scriptural in origin.

Christians through the church, own the world, not in its physical, outward appearance but as its culture and civilization, that component of reality that we the people have fabricated for our use and benefit. This component created by men may also be viewed as the church. The church belongs to us by right of creation and possession, this reality that is the church is ours, bequeathed to us by God gives us our rights.

Our political jurisdictions represent our fabrications and possessions. Political jurisdictions are more justly defined by our constitutional rights than by any other factor. Our ownership cannot be rescinded or reassigned by another. We own what we create and care for. The boundaries of our care define our political and ownership limits.

All authority must come from the base, from the local jurisdiction from which all power and authority flows. Power that takes authority away from the base infringes the human rights of us all. The state defends the doctrine of legal rights. Legal rights are a substitute for and a replacement of our human rights. Human rights are the rights of owners and proprietors, legal rights are the rights of subjects of the state.
