This is a update post of what is going on with my main Minecraft world!!! Minecraft is a very cheap hobby (or almost any video game for that matter, pay once continually play it for the rest of your life, type of cheap entertainment). Yeah, I know, I'm into Minecraft for a while, I figure it is something I can do until my life gets busier then I would scale down Minecraft. Yes, I play Minecraft as I listen to the Bible, Sermon or some other thing that I can listen to while I play Minecraft, yes I do play Minecraft at times while watching IBXToyCat playing Minecraft. I trained myself to do at least two things at "once" (technically not true based off the science of multitasking or lack their of).
In this photo (above), I had a dilemma where I was so high up in a snowy biome that my water froze at a certain point. I'm going to try out a different biome. I'm not sure it would actually work but it is not in a snowy biome so it might? The idea is to have this to sky limit. IBXToyCat has one but it is just all dirt and I want to make it look better. Hence the first floor is "complete" I haven't put water or seeds in it but everything else is. I'm going to either glass it or fence even do both but first level is glass, second level is fence, third is glass, fourth is fence and so on until sky limit or close to it. I might not "go all the way to sky limit but have a roof that does go to sky limit.
I won't tear down the old wheat farm tower, but I will leave it and put a sign about why I no longer work on this project.
First photo is my new uncompleted main base that I officially moved on October 25th, 2019 from my old main base (middle picture).
I know this is all I want to share in this post about my main Minecraft world. And most of the ideas that I come up with are from IBXToyCat (primarly a Minecraft YouTuber, that I enjoy watching his stuff, he doesn't try to be overly dramatic and have the mindset that he can't please everyone so just be yourself (within reason) type of attitude. His channel seems more "real" than a lot of the other Minecraft YouTubers. A lot of them went away and back again based off of trends. I don't like those YouTubers that based their content solely off of trends. I'm not trying to be snobbish but it is the type of content that I don't like, hence why I'm just sticking with IBXToyCat as my only Minecraft YouTuber plus I only have 24 hours a day to give and rather give some of it to a person that seems more genuine. He did a good 7 years of his main lets play world that he recorded over the years. Minecraft is a type of game that one can "never" finish but it is technically infinite. The only thing that would hinder your Minecraft world is the computer that you are playing on it based off of performance and storage.
Here is my thoughts about Anarchism and Libertarianism as a Jesus Freak that takes the Reformed Baptist perspective.
There are a few things that need to be discussed about this and I wanted to right this down in word format than me rambling about this subject in a podcast (which I might still).
OK first off, we live in a imperfect world. Until Jesus Christ comes back we won't get all the answers perfectly right. This issue is a tier three issue, meaning I'm not going to hold a fellow believer that takes a different viewpoint out of my church.
How should a Christian live in a fallen world in the context of what to do with the state. My knee jerk reaction is to delete the state all together coming from a libertarian background. I don't really consider myself a "libertarian" I do take the Voluntaryist Principle but I don't define myself as one. I define myself as a Jesus Freak first and everything else is secondary.
Now, when it comes to the state, there are those who want to change the state, just delete the state or do whatever possible to avoid the state.
Those who want to change the state are those who participate in direct political actions, such as voting, promoting a particular candidate or party, or running for office.
Those who just want to delete the state are those who just want to delete the state. I'm kind of in that camp but I do realize that would have different consequences that I'm not sure that I would really want to hit the delete button.
And there are those who want to avoid the state as much as possible. These can be legal and illegal activity.
The first group the "changers" seem to have a notion that they can change the system to make it better. This method short from the norm of the changers of a society, it is impossible. Here in the United States of America, they are just two different types of changers the Democrats and Republicans. If one is outside of those two perspectives good luck trying to radically change the state. If one is in the green party, libertarian or some other random third party, those who are in it, are not able to change the system in any meaningful way.
There are those who want to delete the state. The state is a evil and just need to get rid of it in our society. Yes, the state is evil because it steals people's resources through taxation because if we look to the definition of stealing and the definition of taxation. We would conclude that taxation is a form of stealing. This is why I draw the line of being a politician. I can not out of good conscience be a politician because the act of being a politician by itself would be unethical for me because I would be in direct violation stealing. Some have made that line much further or no line at all. My line is being a politician. One can say being a police officer or an IRS agent is wrong but I won't make that judgement against a person. This judgement is from the individual that is making the call. Yes, in Christian thought, being a politician can be ethical and even encourage but I can't make that leap in light of my understanding of what God wants us to be. I can not rule other people unless I have an explicit contract/agreement with that individual.
The third group are those who are in the camp of avoiding the state as much as possible. This can be done legally and illegally. Now, for obvious reasons one should do it legally because the consequences of doing it illegally according to the state is to high for most people. Now people can get away with it but they have to continually think about how to avoid the state. There are legal ways to avoid the state as much as possible. There are a few good brands that I ran into over the years that would help a person to avoid the state legally. One that comes to mind right away is Nomad Capitalist and the other more attainable is Nomadtopia. I know their philosophies are not ideal Christian philosophies but like most in life we deal with non-ideal Christian philosophies every day unless we live under a Christian rock and that has its own problems.
Now what is my ideal situation in the world? Spiritually speaking everyone is holding to Christ Alone and being holding to Scripture for all things. And the physical aspect of life and dealing with other people is voluntary. Meaning, we do everything that is voluntary or don't do it at all. Now this does have some pit falls but with Biblical guidelines I can safely move towards a more voluntary minded world. This means that I can not be a politician I can only rule over people that agreed to my rule. The only problem with this is the child situation. The child didn't not choose to the parents but the parents did chose to have children and in this relationship it must be very important to keep in mind that this relationship is an involuntary relationship from the start and must be taken seriously. And in many ways, this is how the state became the state because parents abused their children in numerous ways. And really the state in my opinion is the result of the fall of man. Without the fall of man, there would be no state and God would have a direct relationship with His creation. But because of our sinful ways, we have the state and the state abuse us via taxation and even worse, murder (via wars). The solution is and will always be Christ Alone.
