He writes his first notes in and more and more regularly for groups he plays with, often on the edge of Jazz and improvised music. This is the opportunity for Yves Rousseau to express his composer streak and to blend his musical influences with his wealth of experience as a player. Yves Rousseau takes the listener to a world made of jazz, sophisticated music and including accents from worldwide.
And certainly, they are not compatible with biblical Christianity. But because this man's thought was so influential in modern education, modern politics, the French Revolution, the American Revolution and generally the way people think about things, I believe its worth taking a look at these ideas and contrasting them with what I consider to be a biblical view.
Rousseau believed that man was basically good. He denied the idea of "original sin". He wrote, "Everything is good as it leaves the hands of the Author of things; everything degenerates in the hands of man. For Rousseau, it is society's fault, and he spent a lot of his life thinking and writing about how society and the process of socialization could be improved in order to at least mitigate the negative effects of this process. An intellectually brilliant and multi-talented man, Rousseau was also a musician, an educator — but also a fornicator.
He lived a sexually immoral life at various times with various women. This alone should alert us to the fact that he was not a Christian. And when you look at his writings, this should be very obvious. Some of his ideas are extremely dangerous, and no doubt have directly or indirectly steered multitudes of people away from the Christian faith. In "Emile", we have the infamous "Profession of a Savoyard Priest" in which various Unitarian ideas are powerfully presented.
These ideas stand in opposition to the claim of Jesus Christ that He is the only way to the Father. There is this belief in society today that God is terribly UNJUST for making salvation depend on the knowledge of someone whom not everyone even gets to hear about — namely Jesus.
Rousseau advocates something called "Natural Religion" in which Human Reason is the final arbiter of truth, not Divine Revelation. Rousseau includes arguments against Divine Revelation and its confirmation by miracles in this treatise. For Rousseau, whatever seems unreasonable to Human Reason is disparaged.
Rousseau was not an atheist, though he did spend some parts of his life with atheists like Diderot. He created his first band, "The Dixie Jockers", in He was invited as a guest soloist by the Lorient Big band- the Bretagne regional jazz orchestra and he did several tours with: in Latvia, in Vietnam, in Cambodia and in French Polynesia.
