THE CARGO CULT BELIEF

CargoCult-617x328.jpgA friend of mine has Phd in aeronautical engineering, discussed delicate business of transmitting advanced science detail descriptions of building a plane. Without mechanical facilities and right resources the task seems daunting and impossible. The equipment, flight costs, manpower paid before the plane feat accomplished for cargo items to be delivered. So costs time, fuel and materials so somebody has to pay the cost. Despite challenges some insist on building plane leaning on own understanding. Similarly the Bible says some choices or decisions have form of godliness, but deny the dunamis power of God to function” in 2 Timothy 3:5. So Godliness that denies the power of God follows the traditions of men which are unbiblical. Although looks the part with outward trappings appearing real yet is unable to function in faith action as God Commands. Good effort time invested in presumption of secondhand information imitating hoping that everything falls into place. Outward manifestation looks the same but God is in the details. Like innocent children told everything taken literary so some depend on the words of others to build their faith and belief. So never bother to study word of God for themselves to rightly divide the truth and give answers to whoever searches. Years ago a group of people naively felt obliged to imitate mankind rather than learn the intricate details of knowledge which is power. Like children on stage watching teacher in the corner lifting their hands to direct action seen on stage. Children mimick actions seen so copy and perform as if independently using own mind on stage. However soon a teacher comes forward to take courtesy bow and shown appreciation for keeping all under control for success of the show. In cargo cult imitator keeps eyes not on source of information but presumes is in control to harness electrical energy that charter such plane in unknown territory.Cargo-Cult-e1379633101213It seems bizarre that seemingly matured grown people lack complete awareness and understanding of aeronautic physics to fly their plane. They had strong belief but were sincerely wrong trusting in the unchartered laws of physics for a lift off without combustion energy. God does send chariots to people occasionally but not on this occasion. They did not barely realise they already have all their needs met. They saw someone from their own motherland missing favourite foods and presents from loved ones and the family back home. With good measure of love gifts spiced with protective ammunition they see and crave. They underestimate the fertile land owned, undervalue rich soil and sea supplying them with fresh organic food freely. They crave canned meals flown to remind loved ones of the memory of home. They give up precious time to till the land to harvest fresh food fruits, honey, catch fresh fish hunt meat in the jungle, plant and produce food to feed themselves so rather sitting idlyly waiting for a nonexistent freebies from the sky. It is ridiculous to scientific mind but a little knowledge is really dangerous because partial information is not really enough to complete their flight mission.cargo_cult_001.jpgThey built an air traffic control tower but need full picture deeper knowledge into how planes work and the origin of cargo stuff goods in planes. Bear in mind that engineering feat of the time educational level is probably unavailable to them. So similarly a man watched his boss using reading glasses thought the spectacles were the source of vision to read. Indeed where there is no vision people perish as he tried reading with glasses but it did not work exactly as used by the boss. So watching others without understanding to copy them is misleading. In Proverbs 15:16 the Bible says,”Better is little with fear of the LORD God than great treasure and trouble with it. A city full of polluted contaminated water resorts to importing a clean drinking water from another city with clean natural drinking spring. And is pestered to sell water to fill bottles to sell outside to polluted city. The city with clean pure natural beautiful water source realised they are blessed so refuse lobby to buy fizzy drinks. Such reprogramming of people psychologically get rids of their free natural water spring sources sold to buy plastic fizzy drinks tons of waste was unfair. People have God’s blessings right in front of them, underneath their feet.cargo-cults-336x175So Cargo Cult imitates magnified lense binoculars creates invisible delusion of goodies sitting somewhere coming from the sky. Results in form of ignoring and undervaluing priceless natural resources abundantly around them, in expectation of a foreign processed goods sometimes unaccessible unsuitable for environment and toxic waste accumulating so building up new health harzards. Generations of colonial empires have bought cookers, fridges, cars, tools, TV, media equipment that was not conducive to the natives. So often sits in warehouses or storage unit not used. Yet seen as trophy of been to traveller to another country as evidence of artefacts products or gifts to prove it. Lack of contentment means unless it has “made in elsewhere” stamp on product is not considered good quality. The fresh made organic local product disregarded in favour of important packaged items. The cargo cult belief is alive and well in the world taking several forms. Church belief sometimes has appearances and form of  godliness in external features but denies the power thereof denying God’s Supernatural Power Presence. The cargo cult is made mockery of by those producing the cargo goods due to vested interest. It is to ensure the beneficiary of sale of cargo goods does not disclose the trade secrets to protect turf and territory from disadvantage of being taken over.wiklinowy-samolot-1.jpgIt makes dependants look like tokues so highlights superiority complex of cargo cult. The donor prefers ignorance of the the cargo cult recipient good for business so the sadistic person deprives others for their global market expansion. Therefore to ensure domination of the cargo cult the recipient is educated and trained to eat the contents of the cargo samples to acquire and develop taste. Soon the real cargo lands on its own terms by default so imitators can be kept on leash while laughing at their ignorance. So good for the one wanting to perpetuate myth of the unlearned barbaric half Knowldge imparted without giving full trade secret to complete deed can equal competent scientist. It is the interest of the teacher imparting knowledge not to give the game away so it makes those who know look better than those with half baked truth. The person in search of such real knowledge to develop so make progress too is mocked by the teacher who chose to give them instructions taken literally to mean what they were told as a joke?19_5.jpgGenuinely trusting naive people a joke told to build outer shell of plane from inappropriate matetials to watch it fly. Based on presumption perhaps barbaric to phantom technical engineering skills hence communication hitch probably? It seems bizarre child-like faith ignorance yet taken extremely seriously by victims in search of also own cargo goods already freely available to them naturaly. If only the cargo cult addicts knew their natural resources fuelled the cargoes they crave. Would they still yearn for cargo goods if only they knew actual cargo products on show was to display their innocent lack of knowledge, write books, photographs further to even exploit not recognising highly valued organic primitive culture considered savages. Prejudice in those days meant sat next husk of plane that copied real former self not taking off or landing by imitating. Just not taking initiative to further invest to appreciate what they already have. The myth is only resolved if cargo cult victims do research like Malawi man built his own solar from scrap metal reading and studying books from library. Others travels to see learn more about the root of cargo cult. Deeper source of knowledge is personal fear of God the source of all Wisdom. The cargo cult believer seller buyer of cargo goods have much to learn from the Knowledge of God to trade in line with Makers Rules and Ethics of cargo goods.
