But to begin our picture lets paint a story;
Once upon a time, and still to this day man (lets call him Adam) was sinful. Adam worked as a mechanic in a sinful machine. Each machine part was tainted with sinful dust, which added more and more dust, and made piles of dust each and every day (365 24/7).
No matter how hard Adam tried to get rid of the dust, the dust was always there.
God had kept an eye on the machinery of man and was not pleased with the continual accumulation of dusty particles. God will call him El, knew that the only solution was to help man with the dust problem. El knew he was the only hope for man. So the lone gun man El, sent his Logos-Son-Jesus into the factory. Jesus turned over the factory and busted the machinery into tiny pieces. The machinery would no longer be able to produce the sinful dust that had so plagued man.
Man was/is stubborn and it took time for man to see the awesome power of Monkey wrenching Jesus.
Some men even went and started building more machines.
So Jesus proclaimed, if you join that crew you can not be part of my kingdom. Jesus came to adopt man into a kingdom absent of dusty machines.
I know that there are flaws in my story, so write me and discuss where you may have a problem with this explanation:
On a grey planet, of a little no named star, lost in a galaxy tucked away, in some dusty corner of a universe; lived a bushwhacker. The bushwhacker desired not to be a hermit. He dreamed of one day having people join him on his journey. But the man knew that sometimes all you have is Christ and tiny footsteps. He yelled into space in hopes of hearing an echo.

Morality According to God: A graphic representation of chapter 2 He Is There and He is Not Silent by
Francis A Schaeffer
Dada: Nothingness Defines the World. Anarchy
Dictatorship: The Dictator decides what is best for the people.
Hobbesian Politics: One man over the population.
Socialism: Greatest Good decides what is best for the people.
Judeo-Christian World View morality is personal and particularly prescribed by a loving God, told to man in the entire Christian Cannon (AKA the bible)
Man was created by God in his own image, in his own image God created man, but because we rebelled we became abnormally bad and become more sinful as time progressed. Till the day we awaited a cure that could only be found in Christ. If the cure is not Christ than all is lost and we might as well call ourselves mad men bent towards anarchy.
