This month’s Chalcedon editorial warns us: “What begins with erasing God from society and institutions must make its way to the hearts and minds of believers.”
It’s not that the Church, or Christ’s Kingdom, is going to fail. But we as individuals can; and history is littered with the bones of failed countries and societies.
We don’t want America winding up there, do we?
The temptation is always “Go along to get along.” And so we compromise with a Godless world. We want people to think we’re nice guys. Next thing you know, we’re attending a baby shower for a woman who’s having a baby by her “boyfriend” while still married to her husband.
Cultural compromise is giving away half the Church’s ground whenever the world demands it.
Faithfulness has to win back the ground. Has to–or America is finished.
“Our mind is right, boss! Our mind is right!”
The California legislature has passed a resolution blaming “religious people”–the key words are “has caused”–for the high rate of suicides among homosexuals, lesbians, and other sexual aberrants (https://thefederalist.com/2019/06/27/ca-legislators-blame-religious-people-high-lgbt-suicide-rates/).
“The Legislature calls upon all Californians to embrace the individual and social benefits [?] of family and community acceptance” of those who practice the homosexual form of fornication. They do not tell us what those “benefits” are.
The reason this is only a resolution and not a law–yet!–is because the First Amendment to our Constitution prohibits any government from ordering the people’s religious beliefs. Without that protection, it’s a sure thing that these tinpot California fascists would be ordering all churches to “affirm” homosexuality as a positive good, and to erase all those sections of the Bible that do not affirm it. And there would be prison time for anyone who failed to obey.
The fact that it really is just about the easiest thing in the world to find a lamebrained liberal “affirming” church that affirms every sexual malpractice known to biology, cuts no ice with the legislature. It’s not enough for them that there are plenty of “gay-affirming” apostate churches. They won’t be satisfied unless all the churches are apostate.
And if they could literally dig their way into our brains and root out all the ideas they disapprove of, they’d do that, too.
And you wind up “celebrating” abortion
What do you get when you remove from Christianity the redemptive death of Jesus Christ, and His resurrection, and replace it with a “feminist agenda”?
You get damnable heresy and soul-destroying garbage, of course!
I wrote this satire in 2011. By 2013 it had become literally true.
I’m starting to feel like a buggy-whip manufacturer.
You remember the Democrats. You know–the party that booed God at its national convention. The party of abortion at birth, transgender, drag queen-ism, and banning Christmas. Those Democrats.
If you’re a Christian voter, they’ve got a plan to recruit you (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6kGP5lOwsw).
While you’re at it, we’ve got the Brooklyn Bridge for sale.
See, they don’t want to concede “the evangelical vote” to Republicans anymore, despite having energetically done everything they could to alienate it. So far, Corey “Spartacus” Booker and Pete “Ooh, My Husband!” Buttigieg have hired “faith advisors.” And the Democrat National Committee has hired an “anti-Trump pastor” from Union “Theological Seminary,” where their latest caper is teaching something called “rejoicing in the queerness of God.”
Hint: don’t trade places with these characters on Judgment Day.
Does any Democrat even know what an “evangelical” is? Resorting to what we charitably call “the religions left” (instead of the more accurate “pagans”) to win over evangelicals is hilariously off the mark. But this is a party that has completely lost touch with normal people.
Why is it that when I write the nooze, it feels like writing satire?
This was my New Year’s message for 2014. Nothing much has changed since then. Atheists still eschew good manners.
I wonder if they were always so mean-spirited as they are today. I’m not counting college students going through a phase. It’s the ones who never grow out of it who can turn any conversation into an endurance test. But, as Martin Selbrede so often says, we are put here at least to try–and that with gentleness. No one ever got harangued into the Kingdom of Heaven.
But there is rejoicing in Heaven for every one of them who comes to Christ.
The Chalcedon Foundation website (www.chalcedon.edu) is still shut down, we still don’t know what happened to it, and our tech guys are still working to try to bring us back online.
Just a couple of weeks ago some “journalist” sporting a rainbow T-shirt and a Palestinian face mask was “investigating” us for being a “hate group.” The substance of his investigation was that the Southern Poverty Law Center called us a hate group in 2006, so obviously we must be one, yatta-yatta. He complains to our server, and the next thing we know, our website is down.
Some of us have come to believe that Big Tech will do whatever it takes to ensure a Democrat presidency from whom they can buy whatever favors they need. Part of that strategy has to be to stifle conservatives, to erase their presence from the social media.
Meanwhile, Patty has solved and corrected the problem of my book chapters coming out as gibberish, so at least that one can come off Chalcedon’s to-do list.
Please pray for my employers and my mentors, The Chalcedon Foundation. Father in Heaven, we are being kept from our ministry–this is my belief–by the ungodly, who have interfered with our communications. They can’t get at you, so they come after your servants. Please, Lord, see us through this frustrating time, help us get back online, and protect us from the malice of your enemies. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Remember this, from 2014? David Limbaugh’s book, Jesus on Trial, was the No. 1 best-seller on Amazon, which would have placed it No. 4 on the New York Times’ list… if the Times hadn’t chosen to pretend it didn’t exist.
Having read the book myself, I can’t explain why the Times banned it from its list. It’s just a book about Jesus by a Christian who believes in Him. Uh, wait a minute, I think I might’ve just answered my own question….
