#276E: Bible verses that forbid us to stand in governmental elections and attempt "top-down" improvements of the world

Motto: "The only reason for which I did NOT abandon voluntarily previous attempts to stand as a candidate in governmental elections, was that I did NOT know yet verses of the Bible that require from us to separate ourselves from affairs of the physical world."

On 17th of September 2016 in my statement reported below as item #J1, I published a correction of my previous intentions to consider standing as a candidate in the NZ governmental elections of 2017. Before that date I considered such standing, because from my research stemmed that the humanity wanders increasingly more dangerously, and therefore it urgently needs fast and efficient "top-down" political reforms and improvements. In my imperfect and fallible human understanding of the current situation, I believed that my moral duty was to stand in the governmental elections as a candidate whom in everyday life practices the principle of the philosophy of totalizm stating that "whatever you do, do it pedantically morally". In turn, if I was democratically elected, I believed that I should try to use my knowledge and life experience for introducing reforms and improvements to the system of democratic governance using a "top-down" mechanism (e.g. through adding to every governmental decision the requirement to check it for the compliance with the moral criteria, through such change to electoral laws that candidates could win the election without getting into financial debts from their rich sponsors - which debts they must pay back later through giving political favours, etc., etc.). But the current correction of these my former intentions states that (1) relying on a clear command contained in the Bible (ordering us that instead of being actively involved in the affairs of the physical world, we should try to separate ourselves from matters of the physical world), as well as (2) relying on the enormously important totaliztic finding described in item #L1 from my autobiographical web page named "pajak_jan_uk.htm" (that each our essential decision and action we should consult with the content of the Bible), I decided that I abandon all my further attempts to stand as a candidate in any governmental elections. Reasons for this decision, verses of the Bible that induced this my decision, and moral lessons resulting from the correction of my previous intentions, are fully explained in items #J1 to #J5 from this post, as well as in item #J1, and in the entire "part #J" of the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm".

#J1. Verses of the Bible that require from us to separate ourselves from the physical world, means, among others, require to NOT hold any positions of political or social authorities, with the "top-down" use of power of which we could "forcefully" try to "make" people happy:

Due to the combination of circumstances which I am to describe in item #J2 below, near the end of August 2016 my attention has been drawn to a few verses from the Bible, which, among others, require us to separate ourselves from affairs of the physical world, means (in my understanding) which prohibit, amongst others, engaging ourselves in political and public positions such as positions in the government of the country. (What is most interesting, I also noted already, that very similar bans on engaging ourselves in positions of power and authority are known and implemented in virtually every world religion given to the humanity by God.) After a thorough rethinking of these biblical verses from the perspective of what I explained in more detail in item #L1 of my autobiographical web page named "pajak_jan_uk.htm", on 17th of September 2016 I added to the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm" (and immediately published) the new "introduction" and item #J1 along with the entire "part #J" – which, after the adaptation, I later publish also on my blogs as this post. I inform in them all interested persons how the content of these verses from the Bible changed my position on the further engagements in "top-down" efforts to repair the quickly deteriorating situation of people, by standing as a candidate in the elections to the authorities of the country, while in case of being elected - by the based on fulfilment of moral criteria the improvement of principles of democratic governance and the process of governmental decision-making. So let us start from quoting here the content of these Bible verses that changed my behaviour and my views of the world. Here they are:

"The First Letter of St. John the Apostle", verses 2:15-17, quote: "Do not be loving either the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, because everything in the world - the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the showy display of one's means of life - does not originate with the Father, but originate with the world. Furthermore, the world is passing away and so is its desire, but he that does the will of God remains forever."

"Second Letter to the Corinthians", verses 6:14-18, quote: Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what fellowship do righteousness and lawlessness have? Or what sharing does light have with darkness? Further what harmony is there between Christ and Be'lial? Or what portion does a faithful person have with an unbeliever? And what agreement does God's temple have with idols? For we are a temple of a living God; just as God said: "I shall reside among them, and I shall be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore get out from among them, and separate yourselves, says Jehovah, and quit touching the unclean thing; and I will take you in. And I shall be a father to you, and you will be sons and daughters to me, says Jehovah the Almighty."

"Letter of St. James the Apostle", verse 4:4, quote: "Adulteresses, do you not know that the friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever, therefore, wants to be a friend of the world is constituting himself an enemy of God."

As the reader probably knows, I empirically research all the hitherto unexplained mysteries of the surrounding reality, with which fate confronted me. This research, however, I carry out from the philosophical approach called "a priori" - which is ignored by the present official science. Such "a priori" approach is ordered to us by the new "totaliztic science" - refereed, amongst others, also in item #J5 from this post and from the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm", while most accurately described, among others, in items #C1 to #C6 from my different page named "telekinetics.htm". As one of the most vital my findings, to which led me the researching of surrounding reality with the methods of the new "totaliztic science", I consider the one which is explained in detail in item #L1 from my autobiographical web page named "pajak_jan_uk.htm". This finding states, that each more important for us matter and decision of life we should consult with the content of the Bible. After all, the content of the Bible was inspired by God to explain to us principles of morally-correct acting in virtually every essential for people matter of life. At the same time the Bible is also the only book on Earth that contains the truth and nothing but the truth. Only that, as the book the understanding of which is controlled directly by God, truths contained in the Bible are made available only to those people, who spiritually matured to learning them. Therefore, the Bible has a "magical power" to NOT open its content for understanding by those ones who have NOT earned yet the right to learn truths that the Bible contain, e.g. for atheists, sinners, lazy people, etc.

Into the group of important issues, to which I recently devoted a lot of my attention and research, I ranked also my efforts to actively join the attempts at a quick and efficient, because implemented in the "top-down" manner, remedying the situation of the population of my country (and my "neighbours" in the biblical understanding of this word), by enabling them to democratically elect me to authorities of the country, thus by creating a precedent and a possibility of such improvement of the system of democratic governance, that in its decisions this system began to be guided by moral criteria. The results of my research and active measures implemented in this particular area only in English have already been published on the following web pages: "pajak_for_mp_2014.htm", "pajak_re_2017.htm" and "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm". (We should remember that each of these web pages has also its Polish-language version.) At the moment when I first heard the content of the above verses from the Bible, I was just busy preparing myself for organising in New Zealand a political party based on moral criteria and on principles of totalizm. This party was to be named the "Totalizm Party of NZ" - as in a greater detail this is described in the caption under "Fig. #J1" from the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm". However, the content of the Bible verses discussed at the beginning of this item suddenly realized to me that in fact God does NOT wish that I actively engage myself in any attempt of a "top-down" repair of the situation of today's people. As the former sub-lieutenant in the Polish army, and also as a fallible and imperfect human being, I well understand and respect the fact, that from the point of view of the plans of our God, Creator, and at the same time the commander in charge of the whole of humanity, for God the situation in every matter may look quite differently than from my point of view of an imperfect and fallible man. Therefore, after a careful pondering of these verses of the Bible, I came to the conclusion, that in fact they refer also to my attempts at an active "top-down" repair of the world. Hence I decided that I obey the orders of these verses from the Bible, and thus immediately abandon all further my attempts to stand as a candidate in any election. After taking this difficult decision, I prepared the introduction, this item #J1, as well as the entire "part #J" of the Polish version of web page "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm" - in which this my decision was published in the Polish language already on 17th of September 2016. At the beginning of October 2016, that introduction and the entire "Part #J" I translated into English and publish them also in the English-language web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm" (later also adopted in this post) - that concerns my possible participation in the soon upcoming New Zealand parliamentary elections of 2017.

#J2. The history of my decision described here, on discontinuing further attempts to stand as a candidate in any election:

In New Zealand there is a religious TV channel called "Firstlight". I have a free access to it on my TV. Near the end of August 2016 I watched in evening a subsequent program in that "Firstlight" channel. Suddenly it hit me in the words of the person presenting that program, that actually he refers, among others, to my attempts to actively start a "top-down" repair of the present situation with the humanity, by standing as a candidate in the elections to the authorities of my country. In the words that the program's presenter read from the Bible (i.e. in the words that I quoted at the beginning of the previous item #J1), it struck me that in fact God orders us to separate ourselves from the physical world, instead of actively engaging in the affairs of that world (which engaging, as so-far, I tried to do). The feeling of my misunderstanding of so important issue, so moved and upset me then, that I even did NOT record a name of the program which I was then watching, nor the Bible verses that were quoted in it. Over the next number of consecutive days the words that I have heard in this program constantly went through my mind and forced me to examine my position regarding the issue of standing as a candidate in any election. In the end I decided that I needed to carefully analyze the Bible verses discussed in that program to make sure that in fact these verses refer also to my intentions and situation. However, I did NOT note what these verses are. Fortunately, searches in the Google.com revealed to me that the church of Adventists and its TV channel "Firstlight" have their own website with the address http://www.firstlight.org.nz/schedule/ . On this web site they publish, among others, a list of programs already broadcasted, and those that will soon be broadcasted. This "keeping up" of the church of Adventists with the modern technology greatly impressed me at that time, because it shows that "Adventists" are much better organized, more caring, hardworking, and precise than Catholics. After all, in case of Catholics, as yet, whenever I needed any information from them, it always turned out later that even if they have their own web pages for their parish or church (for example, check web pages of churches described on my web pages with names "sw_andrzej_bobola_uk.htm" or "cielcza_uk.htm"), the updating of these Catholic web pages virtually almost never follows changes in the real life. Thus, on Catholic web pages, as so far, I have not found yet any needed nor useful for me, correct and timely information - for example, even just about such matters as the dates and times of upcoming masses, celebrations, or names and email addresses of priests in office of given church. But returning to the history discussed here, after a thorough analysis of the content of TV programs of these "Adventists", I found that the program, the content of which so moved me, was called "Elvis Placer Ecumenical Red Flags" and was broadcast from the studio in the US on Friday, 26 August 2016, at 12:30 to 13:30 (in NZ at that time was already evening). Further my searched on the Internet revealed also that the actual video of the entire this English-language program is available on YouTube. After seeing this video I was able to determine the exact Bible verses which this program quoted in its minutes from 19:35 to 23:30, while the content of which verses I am quoting at the beginning of item #J1 above.

After thoroughly re-looking at the contents of these verses, and after my failed attempts to find in the Bible any verses that would render exceptions for the election attempts (to which I have devoted so much my time and research), I make the difficult decision described here, namely that with a military discipline I voluntary will fulfil the order contained in these verses, and hence that I will abandon any further my attempts at a "top-down" repair of the situation of humanity. In other words, I decided that I will NOT stand again as a candidate in the elections to any position of authority. I also decided that I will publish that my decision here in this post and on the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm", as well as in its Polish-language equivalent. That my decision I was able to write down and publish it for the first time already on 17th of September 2016.

#J3. What benefits, according to my belief, may have resulted from my active standing as a candidate in elections to positions of national authority, aimed at the "top-down" improvement of current situation of the humanity (e.g. through an introduction of moral checks of all governmental decisions):

(In order to fit this post into the limited memory of the blog, I was forced to remove from it this items #J3 and the next item #J4. The reader can find these items #J3 and #J4 on my web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm", addresses of which I provided near the end of this post.)

#J4. The problem of exceptions:

#J5. Moral lessons that stem from the case described in this post:

My case resulting from the previously untested on the Bible intention to stand for election to the authorities - in spite that the Bible commands to separate ourselves from the physical world (i.e. the case described above in items #J1 to #J4 of this post and the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm") provides an array of moral lessons. Let us list here at least most important out of these lessons:

(A) Urging us to learn how to check in the Bible the moral correctness of our most vital intentions. Quite an important moral lesson is that this description of my case urges us to learn how to practically carry out checks in the Bible regarding the correctness of our intended vital decisions and actions - as it is described in the abovementioned item #L1 from my autobiographical web page "pajak_jan_uk.htm". For example, in order to complete such a checking we should: (A1) define with a short sentence, or with a few keywords, what is the essence of our intended decision or action, then (A2) search in a digital version of the Bible (e.g. from Internet) verses that contain words which are crucial in our expression of the essence of this vital decision or action which we intend to implement, and therefore which we should consult with the content of the Bible, then (A3) find among the analyzed verses those that actually concern our intended decision or action, then (A4) analyze what the Bible verses ask us to do regarding our intended decision or action, in the end (A5) decide to do voluntarily whatever the Bible asks us, NOT by any chance what our human ambitions would like us to do.

(B) Confirmation that the statements of all the major religions of the world originate from the same supernatural source (i.e. from the one and only God). Another lesson, which also results from the case discussed here, is the obtaining an additional confirmation of the truth of descriptions from item #C6 of my web page named "prawda_uk.htm" - which descriptions reveal to us that all religions of the world given to us by God state the same things, only that in different ways that are unique to the characteristics of each of the nations for suiting of which the various religions were created by God. In other words, the additional confirmation that all religions of the world given to people by God, embody the same ordinances, requirements, moral criteria, etc. (However, do NOT confuse here religions given to us by God, with cults, or even entire religions concocted, for example, by power-hungry people.) After all, all the religions of the world given to the humanity by God include, amongst others, orders of this rather contrary to the human nature separation from the physical world - to the description of which is dedicated this post and the "Part #J" of the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm". Thus, in virtually all the major religions of the world, for example, exist their own counterparts for Christian monasteries - in which the religiously inclined persons practiced a group separation from the physical world. Also in all those religions, e.g. highly spiritual persons individually separated themselves from the world, residing in hermitages, caves, wildernesses, etc. Furthermore, for all religions of the world, e.g. the folklore developed stories and legends, that the wisest and closest to God people, who are able to solve problems that normal humans are unable to solve, live somewhere in places that are remote from the human settlements, while getting to them requires overcoming a number of different obstacles. Of course, our finding, which world's religions contain the same commandments and requirements, virtually also shows to us which ones among them were given to humans by our only God, and NOT e.g. were only invented by some power and fame thirsty individuals.

(C) Indication of a new (totaliztic) approach to the world around us, which overcomes the religious conservatism, and eliminates atheistic arrogance, boastfulness, wandering, lying, etc. It is not difficult to notice, that if the world is inhabited only by deeply (blindly) believing people with the today's approach to faith, then probably we would still be living in caves and we would not know the fire yet (e.g. see the so-called "paradox of believers" described in items #A2 and #C3 from my web page named "will.htm"). After all, typically today's believers are NOT interested in the acquisition of knowledge, in learning about mysteries of the world around them, about making inventions, etc. - this is because for everything they have standard answers like: "because God so created it", or "because God wills it", or "God's will", etc. On the other hand, if in the world lived only atheists with the today's approach to the truth, then since a long time we would drown in lies and a long time ago we would already self-destroy our civilization - as it is explained in item #B2 from my web page named "humanity.htm", and in item #B3 from my web page named "portfolio.htm". After all, because of their arrogance, boastfulness and attempts to replace God, God prevents atheists from learning the truth about the world around them - about which preventing God openly tells us in verses 1:27-29 from the Biblical "First Letter to the Corinthians" (confirmed on empirical evidence in item #D4 of my web page named "dipolar_gravity.htm"). So the ideal solution that reconciles the development of knowledge of the truth about God and about the world around us, is that one which is promoted by the new totaliztic science described in items #C1 to #C6 from my web page named "telekinetics.htm". This solution is based on the empirical researching of the world around us - the truth of the final results of which researching is always verified and confirmed on the content of the Bible (i.e. on the only book on Earth, which confirms to us the truth, and nothing but the truth, established on any possible subject - provided, however, that previously we have put our own energy and work into getting to this truth).

(D) Explaining why individuals and groups meticulously adhering to the precepts of God, shun of any activities (or services) in political, social, public, etc., arena. I have always been fascinated why there are people and group intellects, such as "Jehovah's Witnesses", or the so-called Conscientious Objectors (i.e. the people who refuse military service - about the existence of human laws regarding such persons I already mentioned in item #A4 of the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm", and also in item #L3 from another my web page named "cielcza_uk.htm"), which not only shun from political activities, social services, etc., but actually who are ready even to go to prison than e.g. undergo a military service, or touch a gun. As it turns out, the reason for the existence of such individuals and group intellects, are just ordinances of God to separate themselves from the physical world precisely described in item #J1 of this post and of the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm" - and often additionally supported by various other precepts contained in the Bible (e.g. the order NOT to kill). In my research I came across many such people, often very productive, famous, and sometimes even residing in palaces of monarchs, who, however, refused to perform any public office or political duty. Their examples include Zhang Heng - i.e. a Chinese inventor of the telepathic detector of impending earthquakes (described on my web pages named "seismograph.htm" and "artefact.htm"), and the historically existing Chinese, Shou Xing, (described e.g. in subsection JG9.1 from volume 8 of my newest monograph [1/5]), who lived to the age of around 800 years, so that Chinese have recognized him later as their "god of longevity".

(E) Realising that from our perspective it is difficult to understand the perspective of God. This is probably the most important among the moral lessons. It states that what we from the human point of view (and thus from the perspective of our imperfections, erroneous knowledge, fallibility, habits, oversights, etc.) can consider e.g. to be a morally-correct helping others, in fact from the superior point of view of God expressed in the Bible may turn out to be the banned for us by God "top-down" acting, the implementing of which can be an immoral acting and therefore is punished by God.

(F) ... (see the web page "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm")

(G) The indication of example that confirms the essence of item #L1 from my web page named "pajak_jan_uk.htm". In that item #L1 I explained and emphasized, that as an imperfect and fallible people we can greatly be at wrong in our assessment of whether is moral or NOT whatever we just intend to do. In turn this post and the "part #J" of web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm" confirms it. After all, it reveals that the "bottom-up" doing "good deeds" for the benefit of individuals whom, for example, ask us to do for them these "good deeds", God recommends and rewards. But the "top-down" forceful imposition of "good deeds" onto entire group intellects, a lot of people from which do NOT wish to receive such "good deeds", God forbids and severely punishes them after the elapse of so-called time of return. It is just because of the existence of such well-hidden nuances and differences, which in our rough and incomplete moral analyzes can easily be overlooked and ignored, that absolutely every our significant life decision or action it is worth (and we should) consult with the content of the Bible - as I explained this in the abovementioned item #L1 from my autobiographical web page named "pajak_jan_uk.htm". In that consulting, one needs to carefully analyze what the Bible clearly and directly states about the interesting us matter. However, in cases when the matter is very important, while the Bible omits its direct explanation, then it is worth (and we should) try to answer ourselves the question "why in this very important matter the Bible deliberately avoided a direct explanation?" - after all, omniscient God who authorized the Bible omits nothing just by a pure chance, but everything that He entered into it, or omitted, He did highly deliberately. (As examples of some of the reasons for such a deliberate omission in the Bible of direct explanations, consider the matter "when the soul enters the body" (which bears a direct impact on the ethics of abortion), which matter I discussed in item #C6 from my web page named "soul_proof.htm", the matter of verse 22:21 from the "Gospel of St. Matthew" (stating: "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and unto God what is God's") - discussed in 6 from item #C4.2 of my web page named "morals.htm", the matter of polygamy allowed by the Bible, but forbidden by human laws - discussed in item #J2.2.2 from my web page named "morals.htm", and a few yet other such deliberately NOT discussed directly in the Bible issues, that I discuss and try to clarify in my web pages and monographs.)

Of course, in the events and situations described here hides much more moral lessons - but to NOT extend this post and the web page named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm" too excessively, I explained here only a few most important examples of them. After all, on the basis of these examples, the reader probably already alone will be able to realize further among such lessons.

The above post is an adaptation of "part #J" from my web page (available in the English language) named "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm" - updated on 15th of October 2016, or later. Thus, the reading of the above descriptions would be even more effective from that web page, than from this post here - after all e.g. on the totaliztic web pages are working all (green) links to other related web pages with additional explanations, important texts are highlighted with colours, the content is supported with illustrations, the content is updated regularly, etc. The most recent update of the web page "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm" can be viewed, amongst others, through addresses:

http://totalizm.com.pl/pajak_for_mp_2017.htm

http://pajak.org.nz/pajak_for_mp_2017.htm

(*) Notice that every address with totaliztic web pages, including all the above web addresses, should contain all totaliztic (my) web pages - including all the web pages indicated in this post. Thus, in order to see any totaliztic (my) web page that interests the reader, it suffices that in one amongst the above addresses, the web page name "pajak_for_mp_2017.htm" is changed into the name of web page which one wishes to see. For example, in order to see the web page named "will.htm" e.g. from the totaliztic web site with the address http://totalizm.pl/pajak_for_mp_2017.htm , it is enough that instead of this address in the window of an internet browser one writes e.g. the address http://totalizm.pl/will.htm .

It is worth to know as well, that almost each new topic that I am researching on principles of my "scientific hobby" with "a priori" approach of the new "totaliztic science", including this one, is repeated in all mirror blogs of totalizm still in existence (the above topic is repeated in there as the post number #276E). In past there were 5 such blogs. At the moment only two blogs of totalizm still remain undeleted by adversaries of the new "totaliztic science" and of the moral philosophy of totalizm. These can be viewed at following internet addresses: https://totalizm.wordpress.com/ and http://totalizm.blox.pl/html/

With the totaliztic salute, Jan Pajak
