They Shall Be as Gods

See the source image

Secular humanist triumphalism is the religion of most of this world’s ruling class: they mean to replace God. They intend to do all the things God should have done, but of course couldn’t do because He doesn’t exist. So runs their thinking.

Among the wonderful things they plan to do is to eradicate all–repeat, all–disease from the earth: Science will enable them to do this, because Science is pretty much all-powerful. You can’t buy God, but you can buy Science. This they have done.

But here’s the problem. Once they’ve got their shingle out, once they’re set up in the god business, it becomes a poor reflection on them if anyone gets sick. With them in charge, that’s not supposed to happen. Hence mandatory vaccinations against every disease known to medicine; and every time a not-terribly-serious disease, like measles, manifests itself… Well, they’ve got a crisis. A chicken pox crisis, say. Requiring prompt and decisive action by the state. A mandatory chicken pox vaccine. Enforced with fines and prison sentences. You get the idea.

Read their writings. A full and meaningful life for all. No more poverty. No more war. No more national borders: the same global state will govern all.

But the more they do, the more people will expect of them. We’ve already seen this. For instance, with real, raw racism abolished in America insofar as humanly possible, imaginary racism has to take its place–as something for the power of the state to be mobilized against, to feed on, and to grow.

Because everything they do has only one purpose: to expand the reach and power of the state, with themselves in charge of it. It may seem absurd to make laws against using the “wrong” pronouns; but it’s also the state claiming power over the very words out of your mouth. More power. Always more power.

God humbled Nebuchadnezzar.

He will humble secular humanism.

I just want to be there when He does!

    I am so sick of these “fools” as described in Psalm 14, and Psalm 2.
    Maranatha!!

    You’re right Lee. You can insult the Creator, but in the final analysis, it always leads to disaster.

    Just as God set up the Book of Esther drama, so He is setting up the drama of good triumphing over evil in our day. Read Psalm 37. Better yet, read all of the Bible that proclaims God’s victory and control over all of history.

      Mighty hard traveling to get there, though.

      My conclusion is that these are Last Days events we are seeing. I realize that not everyone see it this way and respect that fact, but what is happening right now, not only in the U.S. but also in Europe and the Middle East represents an astounding change. Keep in mind that Turkey has gone from a secular state to something quite different, in just the last few years.

      Last Days or not, real trouble is brewing.

        In the whole 20th century, when was there any time when serious trouble wasn’t brewing?

        The prophetic timetable is not for me to figure out. All I can do is put my head down and keep on working.

        This is a pretty sickening age, but the two world wars really must have been infinitely worse than this.

          I would agree that the trouble has been brewing for some time. There is no way of setting a timetable, in fact the resurrected Jesus made that point emphatically when the disciples asked if this was the time to restore the kingdom to Israel.

          But Jesus also commanded that we be on the watch. Matt 24:42 “Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.”What I see as different in our age is that the trouble is much more widespread than ever before. When Jesus gave the signs for the Second Coming, the key word was when you see ALL of these things occurring. Matt 24:32 “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates.

          What convinces me is that the sign Jesus mentioned in Matt 24 seem to be happening more intensely, all the time. I agree that we must occupy until it happens, but Christ did tell us to remain watchful.
