one thing we don’t talk about enough is
0:02
the Christian concept of original sin
0:05
and really any idea that humanity is
0:08
depraved by nature and the impact that
0:11
that has on the world today whether it
0:12
be Israel and Palestine or um any of the
0:16
Law and Order rhetoric we see in the
0:17
United States um you know when you
0:20
believe that at their core um especially
0:25
spiritually humanity is evil that it is
0:28
Fallen um and that it’s always going to
0:30
be that way there’s no room for Progress
0:32
there’s only room for maintenance and so
0:36
it’s why you see Evangelical so um
0:40
firmly lined up behind
0:42
Israel and you know obviously there are
0:45
zionis implications um in this regard as
0:48
well but um but generally you know
0:51
people that don’t dive that deep they
0:54
hold a view that people are bad and
0:57
they’re not going to change it’s it’s
0:58
Human Nature and so we need Law and
1:01
Order In order to keep that in check so
1:04
that the rest of us can live our lives
1:07
but if you believe as I do and I I still
1:09
consider myself a follower of Christ but
1:12
um in a much different way but if you
1:14
believe as I do that people can improve
1:17
that people can progress I believe that
1:19
I’m one of them as a former conservative
1:21
um then you know your your outlook and
1:26
and the solutions that you look look for
1:27
completely change um you’re more
1:30
supportive of uh you know something like
1:34
two states because you can see that of
1:36
course Palestinian people can improve
1:38
their situation should they be given
1:40
some level of
1:41
Freedom um you know in the United States
1:44
in regards to uh our prison system and
1:48
and uh prison reform you know we see
1:51
that people can improve and I think that
1:53
this is in line with the the teachings
1:55
of Jesus Christ um but unfortunately you
1:59
know so hold this traditional worldview
2:01
and it’s all based in fear uh yeah
2:04
Humanity I believe humanity is by nature
2:07
selfish um but I also believe that love
2:11
can improve that situation it can
2:13
improve it on a broad scale or um on an
2:16
individual level
