"Positive" and "Negative" ???
Why do Christians use the terms, "positive" and "negative"?
"That Hollywood movie certainly had a positive message!", a Christian mom might say.
"I didn't hear anything negative in the State of the Union Message", a politically minded clergyman might say.
When it comes to electrical theory, "positive" and "negative" have meaning. But even then it is a RELATIVE concept! A ground potential is chosen arbitrarily, and any voltage above ground is called "positive" and any voltage below it is called "negative".
All the more, when we are speaking of ideas and behavior, the terms "positive" and "negative" are RELATIVISTIC. These terms have no relation to ABSOLUTE truth, i.e., Biblical Truth.
"Positive" and "negative" have much more in common, as concepts, with the "create your own reality" of eastern mysticism and the occult. These terms are rooted in "yin-yang" type philosophies.
Warning someone that they are on their way to the Lake of Fire without trusting in the real Jesus in terms of the real Gospel is considered "negative" by worldly thinking.
The Serpent telling Eve that she can be as God by disobeying God is considered "positive" by the world and "following your dreams".
Attitudes, ideas, and behaviors are either Biblical or unbiblical, true or false, rebellion or surrender, sin or obedience, Truth or deception.
Followers of Jesus should speak in Biblical terms, not relativistic worldly terms.
"And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."
