In his book The Screwtape Letters, author C.S. Lewis wrote: “The safest road to hell is the gradual one—the gentle slope, one that is soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.”
As we move farther into 2019, the absolute depravity of this society looms ever larger on the stage. Rational thought has been jettisoned and replaced with wonky political proclamations, junk science, and false religion.
Joseph Goebbels, chief Nazi propagandist stated, “When a lie is repeated often enough it becomes truth,” and it seems the line to start and propagate lies goes down the street, around the corner, and out the city gates.First to step in line were agents of evil whose sole purpose was to deflect attention from the truth of God’s word. Next in line were evil politicians propagating and legislating the agenda of darkness and stealing the freedoms of law abiding citizens.Then the liberal media began to broadcast a 24 hour, 7day, 365 week regurgitation of the evil spewing forth from every possible source available to be used by the impending darkness.
So here we are today. Politicians pander to sychphants who brain wash children so that they fear the end of the world if cow farts are not stopped immediately. Likewise these pundants are propagating idiocy and speaking with false regard to morality in regards to protecting the sovreignty of this country. They place illegals on government relief roles, while natural born and naturalized citizens, and veterans cannot find similar services. At the same time, they support giving addicts free needles and drugs while our children vets and old folks cannot afford life-saving medication for bonafide illnesses.
Junk science is dissemminated through government controlled schools and universities, uninformed politicians and the liberal media. Their goal is not to protect the earth but to weaponize children and young adults as activists, and to tax the overtaxed citizens of the United States. When one reads the claims that 97% of scientists agree with anthropogenic climate change, ( a conclusion reached by a cartoonist named John Cook and parroted by the masses), one can see that there are many contradictions and false claims based in junk science, crazy hypotheses and incorrect math. Not all the projected computer models agree, and it can be proven that politics has skewed the real data.
How about the church in America? Too many hired holy men, afraid of their paycheck, sit by and watch countless millions of children be aborted every year. Because no opposition exists, politicians have amped up their desire and plans to see innocent, helpless children murdered, even after live birth. I just read an article about a “church” in Florida that draws its congregation because although listed as Lutheran, it is really a brew house where everyone sits and drinks beer together. It’s called Castle Church Brewing Community, and it is a member church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Here we are, in the words of the great theologian Paul Simon, “slip sliding away.” Sliding away from the righteousness and holiness of God. Sliding farther away from common sense and common decency. Sliding away from rational though and true research. Slipping into mindless acceptance of irreconcilable philosophies and on our way to an alternative reality.
God does not want us in close associations with the world because it almost inevitably leads to compromise with His standards. It jeopardizes the consistency of the Christian’s witness for God because there is a spiritual force in the world that undermines the Christian because the unbeliever does not share the Christian’s standards, sympathies, or goals in life. (2 Corinthians 6:14-17)
As believers, we have an extremely difficult time resisting the spiritual force that wants to lead tus to compromise on the standards of God’s Kingdom. Because we are hard-pressed to regulate our own thoughts and behaviors, He obligates us to purity of life, to holiness, to separation from evil. We owe our allegiance to Him alone, and we cannot allow ourselves not to be a fit vessel for Him to live in.
It is time to stand firm and stop slip sliding away.
