2020 Chinese Gospel Song | "The Consequences of Mankind Losing God's Guidance"
Since mankind’s contrivance of the social sciences,
the mind of man has become occupied by science and knowledge.
Science and knowledge then have become tools for the ruling of mankind,
and there is no longer sufficient room for man to worship God,
and no more favorable conditions for the worship of God.
The position of God has sunk ever lower in the heart of man.
Without God in his heart, man’s inner world is dark,
hopeless and empty.
Subsequently many social scientists, historians, and politicians
have come to the fore to express theories of social science,
the theory of human evolution,
and other theories that contradict the truth that God created man,
to fill the hearts and minds of mankind.
Those who believe that God created everything have become ever fewer,
and those who believe in the theory of evolution
have become ever greater in number.
More and more people treat the records of the work of God
and His words during the age of the Old Testament as myths and legends.
In their hearts, people become indifferent to the dignity and greatness of God;
people become indifferent
to the tenet that God exists and holds dominion over all things.
The survival of mankind and the fate of countries and nations
are no longer important to them,
and man lives in a hollow world concerned only with
eating, drinking, and the pursuit of pleasure. …
Few people take it upon themselves to seek out where God does His work today,
or to look for how He presides over and arranges the destination of man.
Unbeknownst to man, human civilization
becomes less and less able to hew to man’s wishes,
and there are even many people who feel that, living in such a world,
they are less happy than those who have already passed away.
Even people of countries that used to be highly civilized air such grievances.
For without the guidance of God,
no matter how much rulers and sociologists
wrack their brains to preserve human civilization,
it is to no avail.
No one can fill the emptiness in man’s heart,
no one can fill the emptiness in man’s heart,
for no one can be the life of man,
and no social theory can free man
from the emptiness with which he is afflicted.
