Certain ideas have come together to create a worldview that gains popularity, and manifests itself in the classroom, in art, music, and in theological debates. One such movement that gained traction in the 19th century was the Transcendentalist movement.

The core tenets of this philosophy was that divinity is in all nature and humanity, and it emphasized a progressive view of time. Some of the great artistic movements of that century found their origins in this philosophical movement. Transcendentalism is a movement defined by a focus on the natural world, emphasis in individualism, and an idealized perspective of human nature.

While there is some overlap with Christian values and the art from this movement provided value to the arts, its eastern influences and deistic outlook means much of the thoughts in the movement are not in alignment with the Bible.

What Is Transcendentalism? 

The transcendentalist movement began in earnest as a school of thought in Cambridge, Massachusetts as a philosophy that focused on the individual’s relationship with God through the natural world; it is closely related to, and drew some of its ideas from, the Romanticism movement happening in Europe. A small group of thinkers formed the Transcendental Club in 1836 and laid the foundations for the movement.

These men included Unitarian ministers George Putnam and Frederic Henry Hedge, as well as poet Ralph Waldo Emerson. It focused on the individual finding God on their own path, through nature and beauty. There was a flourishing of art and literature; landscape paintings and introspective poetry defined the era. 

These transcendentalists believed that each person was better off the less institutions interfered with the natural man. The more self-reliant a person is from government, institutions, religious organizations, or politics, the better a member of a community that person can be. Within that individualism, there was also the concept of the Over-Soul purported by Emerson, a concept that all of humanity is part of one being.

Many transcendentalists also believed that humanity could achieve Utopia, a perfect society. Some believed a socialistic approach could achieve this dream, while others believed that a hyper-individualistic society could. Both relied on an idealistic belief that humanity tends to be good. Preservation of natural beauty, like countrysides and forest, was important to Transcendentalists as cities and industrialization increased. Outdoor sight-seeing trips increased in popularity, and the idea that man could find God in natural beauty was very popular. 

Many members of the club were the A-Listers of their day; writers, poets, feminists, and intellectuals embraced the ideals of the movement. Henry David Thoreau and Margaret Fuller embraced the movement. Little Women author Louisa May Alcott embraced the label of Transcendentalism, following in both her parents’ and poet Amos Alcott’s footprints. Unitarian hymn-writer Samuel Longfellow embraced a second wave of this philosophy later in the 19th century.

What Does The Transcendentalism Philosophy Think of God?

Because transcendentalists embraced free-thinking and individual thought, there was not one unifying thought on God. As demonstrated by the list of prominent thinkers, different figures had varying thoughts about God. 

One of the ways that Transcendentalists agree with Protestant Christians is their belief that man does not need a mediator to speak to God. One of the most important differences between the Catholic church and Reformation churches was the disagreement that a priest is necessary to make intercession on behalf of sinners for the forgiveness of sins. However, this movement took that idea further, with many believing that church, pastors, and other religious leaders from other faiths can inhibit, rather than promote, an understanding or God. While some thinkers studied the Bible for themselves, others rejected it for what they could detect in nature.

Women are looking for a fathers love

Women are looking for a fathers love. Its important that men understand women are looking for a fathers love and not get scrawed. Woman more than anything are looking for a strong spiritual man to lead the future (the family). I think in a video Jesse Lee Peterson shares with us on his youtube channel he has been working toward and brings everything to a point of how young women are being hurt by men that are just looking to get laid instead of doing right and being in christ and setting a good example of a strong man. We must be in Christ, hate no one, love all, forgave thoses we resent, love what is right and support people who are walking with God.

Women need their fathers in their lives to be strong man to be good examples and not BETA men or weak examples of what a man should be. Its important that a man leads the way as Christ leads men, we as man need to fellow Jesus Christ to keep society from going to HELL.

Every day you can see or people watch how some men and women our living in hell without the right spiritual order then you will continue your hellish way according to 2 Peter. You can also find it in Romans. God will give you over to a reprobate mind.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. – Romans 1:28 (KJV)

In Romans 1, Paul refers to something known as a reprobate mind. If you’re not familiar with the term reprobate, the literal definition in the Greek is failing to pass the test, unapproved, counterfeit. How does this play out in the lives of men and women? And maybe even more importantly, what should your response be? Within this article, I am going to share with you five warning signs of someone with a reprobate mind and what I believe is the best way to approach this.

Spiritual Order – In The Family and Church

God the father

Jesus Christ

Father (Men over women)

Mother (Women over children)


How God Commands Us To Forgive Those Who We Have Resentment Toward.

All of us are tested everyday by our personal internal struggle coming from resentment of what happened earlier in our lives as children typically what our mother did to us, telling how our fathers were not good enough or driving us away from our fathers when we were children. We most go to the people that we have resentment against and forgive them. By forgiving our mothers or whoever we have resentment against, God will forgive us and we can return to the heavenly Father through our Lord and Savory Jesus Christ.

It was said if you don’t love everyone then you love no one. People today live like the Old Testament people did. We must forgive and love everyone as God Commanded us to do according to Matthew 22:34-40.
