They Shall Be as Gods

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!

 


Another Two Cents’ Worth (from me)

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. –Ephesians 6:12

Yesterday “Unknowable” urged me, “Think about the atrocious matters which you report on daily.” I’m thinking, I’m thinking…

The question is, Does Satan truly rule this world? Well, first look again at that “Let’s all worship Satan” T-shirt. I’ve been kind of concentrating, in my reporting, on spiritual wickedness in low places. I can’t get at the rulers of darkness, but all this other stuff is right out in the open where we can all see it: the lust for power over others, the denial of God’s absolute authority, the cruelty, the wickedness, and the sheer stupidity of it all. To me it always looks like the jerks who want to rule the world are just–well, jerks.

As Christians we try to extend Christ’s Kingdom, wherever we happen to be–at home, at work, in the public square. At the same time, the jerks labor feverishly to extend the Kingdom of Man, the state. Some of you think they do it because they’re satanists. I think most of them have no idea they’re satanists: they think they’re doing it for themselves. Some of them even think they’re doing it for us, and it infuriates them when we don’t seem to appreciate their efforts.

From whence come those atrocious matters which I report on daily? I think they sprout from the seed of Original Sin. And from the seed of moral idiocy. From a culture that grows more depraved by the day. It gets that way because people work to make it so.

They’re proud of it. They think they’re the bee’s knees. R.J. Rushdoony cites a European Union poster that says, “This time we will make it work.” Uh-huh. Yeah. This time their insane follies, which have failed abjectly again and again and again, will work. Because they’re so smart, it’s all bound to work.

I don’t think Satan needs people to worship him consciously. I think he gets a bigger kick out of them thinking it’s all their own brilliant ideas. The Kingdom of Man can be satanic without a lot of black masses and yahoos in black robes dancing around a fire. In fact, it probably is a lot more effective when it’s coming from smart-sounding people sitting in offices and claiming to be guided by Science.

It’ll be up to Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God and King of Kings, to toss the powers, principalities, and rulers of darkness into the lake of fire where they belong. Meanwhile, here on earth, God has not given Satan the power to compel us to worship him.

The Lord commands us, “Occupy until I come” (Luke 19:13). That’s what we’re to do, in as many different ways as we can think of. All we can do, as the old hymn puts it, is “Trust and Obey.”

When you think of it, that’s really quite a lot for us to do.
