‘What could be more satanic than political correctness, the crime of free-thinking?’

April 6, 2016

This morning I read an article over at WND (A Free Press for a Free People) that accurately explains that there is something decidedly satanic about leftists’ politics, and he [Michael Walsh] cites classical literature and history as his proof.

If you shake your head in disbelief about the young voters seen on TV cheering on the socialist/communist Bernie Sanders, that article will help explain why such an unthinkable mindset of satanic leftist beliefs has taken its grip upon these brain-dirtied people!

See Romans 1:16-32

Excerpt:

Walsh observed how the left and the devil have the same aims: destroy the traditional and established order.

He wrote, “Critical Theory is the very essence of satanism: rebellion for the sake of rebellion against an established order that has obtained for eons, and with no greater promise for the future than destruction.”

Critical Theory was the brainchild of the Frankfurt School, and it has come to dominate thinking in American academia, with its call to question any and everything.

Walsh said the theory in practice became an attack on everything of value. He described the real goal of Critical Theory as an attempt to demolish Western civilization.

He called it, basically, “a juvenile revolt against your parents.”

The author described the work of the Frankfurt scholars as grounded in an ideology that performed “an unremitting assault on Western values and institutions, including Christianity, the family, conventional sexual morality, nationalistic patriotism … Literally nothing was sacred.”

Walsh described how these leftist thinkers maintain everything we stand for, the values and traditions of America and all of Western Civilization, is arbitrary and capricious. An illustration would be how many on the left consider gender roles to be a subjective matter of personal preference rather than a fixed matter of biology.

During the time that homosexual “marriage” was being debated here in California, I had a blog up called Protect Biblical Marriage [Note: I left Bl0gger because they created a new rule that I disagreed with.] If you take the time to read some of the posts there, you would see dire warnings about the “end game” regarding the radical gay agenda.

Excerpt:

“In California, religious rights, moral rights, parental rights, business owner rights, property owner rights, physicians’ rights, and the right of association are being trampled by the intolerant ‘LGBT’ agenda,” [Randy] Thomasson said. “And despite their lust for dominion and their incessant attacks on other persons’ constitutional rights, the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual activists deceive themselves and others by claiming to be ‘victims’ of peaceful people who have a conscience on these sexual behaviors. But who’s trampling whom? American rights or so-called ‘gay rights’ — you can’t have both, because the latter eliminates the former.”

The next time someone attempts to claim that conservative Christians are “trampling” upon the ‘LGBT’ agenda, please explain to them that in California, the religious rights, moral rights, parental rights, business owner rights, property owner rights, physicians’ rights, and the right of association are being trampled by the intolerant ‘LGBT’ agenda!

The old saying that “a picture is worth 1,000 words” holds true with this graphic:

H/T: Kingsjester Blog: America Pushes Back: Mississippi Governor Signs Religious Objection Law [Great post – read it all!]

Why would such a law be created? Because the rabid LGBTQ…xyz crowd is making it necessary!

Excerpt from article cited at that link:

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant on Tuesday signed a far-reaching law allowing people with religious objections to deny wedding services to same-sex couples and protecting other actions considered discriminatory by gay rights activists.

The measure also clears the way for employers to cite religion in determining workplace policies on dress code, grooming and bathroom and locker access, drawing criticism from civil rights leaders.

Bryant, a Republican, said in a statement he signed the law “to protect sincerely held religious beliefs and moral convictions of individuals, organizations and private associations from discriminatory action by state government.”

Excerpt from Kingsjester blog post :

This morning, on a great Conservative Website, which I am privileged to be a contributor to, www.hotgas.net, you will see posted a News Headline, which reads, “Christian Persecution Up Under Obama”.

Boys and girls, if you haven’t noticed yet, America is being torn apart around us.

We have a president and a political minority in this Sovereign Nation, who not only champion, but embrace the practice of murdering babies in the womb, and declare that deviant sexual practices, which were one of the factors which led to the downfall of ancient Greece and ancient Rome, are healthy, normal, and a “Civil Right”.

What’s next?

Your Honor, my German Shepherd and I want to get married. We are in love.

We have average Christian Americans, who are being sued for exorbitant amounts of money and losing their businesses, because they refuse to violate their Christian Faith, a faith which has been the anchor of the overwhelming majority of citizens in this country, including our Founding Fathers.

Does that make any kind of sense to you?

What in the Wild, Wild World of Sports is a’goin’ on around here?

I believe it all starts at home.

This current generation has, in many cases, been raised without knowing Jesus Christ, or if their parents tried to introduce them to Him, they became seduced by popular culture, and tossed their parents’ Christian Faith aside, because it actually required them to exercise individual responsibility, moral courage, and humility, which involves caring for someone other than yourself.

Popular culture teaches that no one is more important than you are and that self-absorbed philosophy is what we are seeing being played out before our eyes today.

We have raised a generation of spoiled brats who have grown into selfish adults.

I have often thought how is it possible that these young people following Sanders could possibly be duped into thinking that the “cultural Marxism” that this atheist espouses would be good for them and our nation?

Now, let’s go back to the WND article to find out.

Excerpt:

How could this have happened? How could the American elite have fallen for the philosophy of the losers?

Walsh maintains, following World War II, the cultural Marxist philosophers of the Frankfurt School who emigrated from Germany and entered American academia persuasively peddled an illusion: a utopian paradise on earth, meant “to tempt and seduce Western civilization into self-destruction, with shame and doubt as its principal snares.”

In his book, Walsh said the left has erected “a modern Devil’s Pleasure Palace, a Potemkin village built on the promises of ‘social justice’ and equality for all … a world without want or cold or fear or racism or sexism … a world that sounds very much like heaven,” but, instead, “this world has become hell.”

He said that was evidenced by, “The corpses of the untold millions who have died in the attempts of the literally Unholy Left to found the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth, divorced from God,” which, he notes, is also the same ambition as Satan’s: to reclaim heaven, but without God.

“Since few people would willingly consign themselves to Hell,” penned Walsh, “Lying is the centerpiece of both the satanic and the leftist projects … the rebels must always mask their true intentions.”

And being rebels is what the left and Satan have most in common, in the view of the author.

[Walsh] observed how the left and the devil have the same aims: destroy the traditional and established order.

He wrote, “Critical Theory is the very essence of satanism: rebellion for the sake of rebellion against an established order that has obtained for eons, and with no greater promise for the future than destruction.”

All we can do is pray for, and warn people who have fallen for such snares devised by the devil.

2Th 2:7

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He [fn] who now restrains will do so until He [fn] is taken out of the way.

2Th 2:8

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

Th 2:9

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10

and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Atheists With Dead Souls vs. God’s Wisdom

December 10, 2015

Every year at Christmastime there seems to be a new take presented in the war against Christianity.  This time, the perps want to appear “edgy,” “a little funny” or “provocative.”  Well, the Bible describes it as something else! Mainly, the term foolishness comes to mind!

Psa 38:5

My wounds are foul and festering
Because of my foolishness.

Psa 69:5

O God, You know my foolishness;
And my sins are not hidden from You.

Pro 9:6

Forsake foolishness and live,
And go in the way of understanding.

o 14:24

The crown of the wise is their riches,
But the foolishness of fools is folly.

Pro 15:2

The tongue of the wise uses knowledge rightly,
But the mouth of fools pours forth foolishness.

Pro 15:14

The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge,
But the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.

Pro 19:3

The foolishness of a man twists his way,
And his heart frets against the LORD.

Pro 24:9

The devising of foolishness is sin,
And the scoffer is an abomination to men.

Ecc 7:25

I applied my heart to know,
To search and seek out wisdom and the reason of things,
To know the wickedness of folly,
Even of foolishness and madness.

Ecc 10:13

The words of his mouth begin with foolishness,
And the end of his talk is raving madness.

Isa 32:6

For the foolish person will speak foolishness,
And his heart will work iniquity:
To practice ungodliness,
To utter error against the LORD,
To keep the hungry unsatisfied,
And he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

Mar 7:20

And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man.

Mar 7:21

“For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,

Mar 7:22

“thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.

Mar 7:23

“All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”

1Co 2:14

But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

1Co 3:19

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”; [fn]

1Co 3:20

and again, “The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.” [fn]

1Co 3:21

Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours:

1Co 3:22

whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come—all are yours.

1Co 3:23

And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.

That about covers it…

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.

July 13, 2015

Found a wonderful Christian blog to add to my growing “follow” list here at Talk Wisdom. The name of the blog is Historical Jesus Studies.

The first post that I read at the site was:

Former Atheists Speak. 44 Quotes.

It is difficult to cite just one of the 44 atheists on that list who have written about their conversions to Christianity. However, one stood out to me today so that is the one that I will excerpt below.

Our current aberrant, lie filled, sexually immoral, anti-Christian culture is the result of decades worth of indoctrination in our public schools, secular colleges and universities. The hard-core, rabidly anti-God professors that dominate these institutions are busy brain-dirtying students in the most egregious ways! Prestigious universities have become breeding grounds of anti-God, anti-Bible, and anti-Christian thought. It isn’t enough for them to disagree with the religious freedoms that we are (supposed) to enjoy as a Constitutional Republic, but they are busy doing all that they can to egregiously stomp out such freedoms!

The New Totalitarians label themselves as “liberals,” “progressives,” “leftists,” etc.; and also proclaim their ideology to the world via political activism, leftist propaganda on the news, progressivism in social media, and of course, the most totalitarian-oriented mindset of the anything-goes Hollyweird crowd. The result of such pressure being pushed into the minds of young people in this way is proof that the goal of the new Totalitarians is to wrongly proclaim that the things of the world that are evil as “good,” and the things of God that are good as “evil.”

Isaiah 5:20-24 speaks of this plainly; with sharp words of warning to those who engage is such wickedness:

Isa 5:20

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isa 5:21

Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!

Isa 5:22

Woe to men mighty at drinking wine,
Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,

Isa 5:23

Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away justice from the righteous man!

Isa 5:24

Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble,
And the flame consumes the chaff,
So their root will be as rottenness,
And their blossom will ascend like dust;
Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts,
And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

The young people who have escaped such indoctrination are usually those who have either been educated via home-schooling, Christian schools, or charter schools which do not engage in the social engineering that is being hammered into the minds of students who do not know the written of Word of God – the Bible and do not know the Living Word – Jesus Christ.

I think that Peter Hitchens’ quote below speaks volumes regarding the ongoing battle between good and evil that continues to rage here in America.

Peter is a widely know English journalist and author. He has published six books, including The Abolition of Britain, The Rage Against God and The War We Never Fought. He also writes for Britain’s The Mail on Sunday newspaper and is a former foreign correspondent in Moscow and Washington. In his book The Rage Against God: How Atheism Led Me to Faith he tells us of his conversion from militant atheist to Christian theism.

  • “I thought this gesture [burning his Bible] was a way of showing that I had finally rejected all the things that I had been brought up to believe, and I went on to behave for the next 20 years of my life exactly as if I didn’t believe in him [God], and that’s how I discovered in the end that what I had rejected was right.”
  • “The current intellectual assault on God in Europe and North America is in fact a specific attack on Christianity – the faith that stubbornly persists in the morality, laws, and government of the major Western countries. . . .The God they fight is the Christian God, because he is their own God. . . .God is the leftists’ chief rival. Christian belief, by subjecting all men to divine authority and by asserting in the words ‘My kingdom is not of this world’ that the ideal society does not exist in this life, is the most coherent and potent obstacle to secular utopianism. . . . the Bible angers and frustrates those who believe that the pursuit of a perfect society justifies the quest for absolute power.”
  • “…when it comes to the millions of small and tedious good deeds that are needed for a society to function with charity, honesty, and kindness, a shortage of believing Christians will lead to that society’s decay.”

-Peter Hitchens (‘The Rage Against God: How Atheism Led Me to Faith.’)

Read them all HERE!

It is nice to know that these 44 atheists have now seen the light of Christ and have escaped from the secular humanistic prison that once held them in a tight grip of despair. I pray that many more will seek Jesus Christ and escape satan’s stronghold of sin and evil which wreaks havoc upon their lives.

 

Nah 1:7

The LORD is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And He knows those who trust in Him.
