Ephesians 6:12, KJV: "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."
If the America envisioned by the founders is ever to be restored it will take a revival of epic proportions... a revival of the spirit... a revival of the truth. The Left has been very clever as well as successful in monopolizing the use of language... parsing evil actions in benign-sounding terms: "The removal of unwanted extra-uterine tissue" (abortion- the murder of our children) or in calling sodomy " merely a lifestyle choice." Isaiah 5:20-24 King James Version (KJV)
20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
Hollywood and the mass media are famous for supporting and mainstreaming these evils. They use their lock on the cinematic arts along with the vast wasteland of television to normalize the most bizarre behavior. What it all boils down to, however, is normalizing evil. People are bombarded 24/7/365 with obscene filth that would make a prostitute of 100 years ago blush- today it's just "entertainment." Our lawmakers are up to their ears in this evil as well... feckless Republicans- those who don't indulge themselves- are afraid to offend anyone. Democrats are at the vanguard of this evil... what's important to bear in mind, however, is that politics is merely a tool used to institutionalize this evil. The real war is spiritual, and our children are the prize. This is how the political part of this spiritual war is being waged.
"Marginalized" groups, in this case the LGBTQ+ community feign moral outrage every time they don't get their way. Their supporters in the Democrat Party and the media pick up the narrative and run with it. Anyone who disagrees is painted as a "Nazi" or a "homophobe." They've used this tactic to browbeat America into allowing these vile individuals access to our children, yet no one has the moral backbone to stand up and reject this evil. The genuine "Nazis" are the Fascists who use these tactics to impose their will on an unwilling public... that's how tyranny works.
It is the political ruling class that is behind the destruction of American morals- the Democrats seem to have become the mouthpiece for the Deep State that is behind this evil. Hannah Arendt wrote The Banality of Evil to describe the inherent evil that came from the Nazi bureaucracy... it was the bureaucrats "just doing their jobs" that carried out the horrific atrocities at the concentration camps and elsewhere. What is astounding is how they got the population to be complicit in this evil.
“She was asked what she had learned from the Holocaust, and she said that 10 percent of any population is cruel, no matter what, and that 10 percent is merciful, no matter what, and that the remaining 80 percent could be moved in either direction.”—Kurt Vonnegut interviewing Susan Sontag
Americans, like the Germans of the Weimar Republic before them, aren't monsters- yet we allow our government to institutionalize evil. It may be a different sort of evil, a Fascism of the Left rather than Nazism, but ultimately evil is evil regardless from which end of the political spectrum it is derived. Just as the Catholic Church has succumbed to the "Lavender Mafia," America is succumbing to the Rainbow Gestapo.
We are no longer living the American Dream. We’re living the American Lie. Indeed, Americans have been lied to so sincerely, so incessantly, and for so long by politicians of all stripes—who lie compulsively and without any seeming remorse—that they’ve almost come to prefer the lies trotted out by those in government over less-palatable truths.
The truth is that our representatives no longer view themselves as servants of the people, but as our rulers. Our freedoms are being taken away one by one and we sit like the proverbial boiling frogs waiting for the water to get hot enough to kill us. One representative, Frederica "The Rodeo Clown" Wilson is proposing legislation by which citizens can be prosecuted for poking fun at Congresspeople online... these people have gone mad with power. The Ten Commandments and crosses have been removed from the public arena. Prayer removed from schools. Yet homosexuality and transgenderism is being pushed on kindergarten children... all in the name of tolerance and "diversity."
Now there is pending legislation making LGBTQ people a protected class. If this happens it will sound the death knell for religious freedom in America... but Satan's plan all along has been to destroy what God has made and to exalt himself on most high. You don't have to be a Satanist to serve the dark one. As Edmund Burke said: "The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." There is no moral gray zone, you either serve God or you serve Satan... there is no in between.
Earlier this month, Michigan State Senator Jeremy Moss introduced legislation to amend the state's civil rights law to add sexual orientation and sexual identity as protected classes. One of the main objections to changing the law before now has been the harm it must do to conscience protections and the free exercise of religion. Like their federal cousin, the Equality Act, these laws can't ensure equality because, as gay writer Brad Polumbo explains, they work by "elevating [LGBT] rights over those of religious Americans."
This is a slippery slope. Assuming for argument's sake that sexual orientation is a naturally occurring phenomenon- in other words, "you're born that way." Sexual identity is something completely different- sexual identity is a choice, often made for children (whose identity isn't set until adulthood) by activist teachers and other adults pressuring them into surgeries that are not only dangerous but into taking hormones and other drugs that will affect them for life. Children are children for a reason- it seems like it should be axiomatic that the reason that children aren't allowed to male legal contracts is because they lack the mental capacity to do so. To show how far this evil insanity has gone...
The Supreme Court of British Columbia applied similar gender equality dogma when it "declared a father guilty of family violence for his polite refusal to refer to his 14-year old daughter as a boy in private, and his repeated choice to affirm in media interviews that she is a girl." The judge went so far as to order the father's immediate arrest by any B.C. cop who merely suspects him of referring to his daughter as a girl — anywhere in public or private — including uttering her birth name. And, "[p]oliticizing the medical treatment of gender dysphoria could lead to more prosecutions against parents who refuse to aid in the sterilization of their children," as happened recently in Ohio, and they haven't even added gender orientation to their civil rights law — yet. The Ohio judge took into account that the parents' unwillingness that their daughter undergo hormone treatments that will sterilize her "was based at least in part on [the parents'] Christian beliefs."
If we pause for a moment of sanity and look at who is served by this sort of legislation an ugly picture arises... the answer is pedophiles- those evil people who wish nothing more than to prey on our children. I've written extensively about how Child Protection Services has become the number one source of trafficked children- this is your government at work "keeping America's children safe." Sex with children is not only one of the most pervasive evils in America today, it's big business, netting profits in the billions of dollars. Ironically, it goes all but unreported by the mainstream media... could it be that they are complicit, or covering up for someone?
Pedophilia among the ruling class elites is hardly a secret anymore. From the Franklin Scandal to Pizzagate the alternative media has been reporting on this evil since the G.H.W Bush presidency. Yet the FBI and law enforcement, along with the MSM, have been mute. More than 800,000 children in the US go missing every year and many of them fall into the hands of child traffickers. The real evil in this is that there's a market in the first place... this is a crisis of the spirit. This is the work of Satan.
The following numbers come from the National Center for Victims of Crime…
- 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 20 boys is a victim of child sexual abuse;
- Self-report studies show that 20% of adult females and 5-10% of adult males recall a childhood sexual assault or sexual abuse incident;
- During a one-year period in the U.S., 16% of youth ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized;
- Over the course of their lifetime, 28% of U.S. youth ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized;
- Children are most vulnerable to CSA between the ages of 7 and 13.
We have now raised several generations of Americans that have absolutely no moral foundation, and so we shouldn’t be surprised that evil is multiplying all around us. If America is going to have any sort of a positive future, we must turn from lawlessness, but instead, our nation continues to run away from God very rapidly. If this evil is ever to be defeated America must turn to the truth. In John 14:6 Jesus says "I am the way the truth and the life." There are numerous scriptures in which Jesus is referred to as the Truth. America needs a revival of the truth... a revival of the Truth!
The evil doers are masters of language... now they say that words "are violence," but only if used against them. The whole political correctness movement is designed to curb free speech. There is a reason that free speech is in the Bill of Rights- so that the truth can prevail in a hailstorm of lies. As the Bible says of evildoers: John 8:44 New International Version (NIV)
44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
It doesn't matter what acceptable sounding tropes the lies are cloaked in... evil is evil and must be exposed as such or America is lost. There is no such thing as a little lie- a lie is a lie. Evil will never be defeated with love understanding and tolerance... only the truth in its most brutal form will defeat the empire of lies. Remember, the first time Jesus came, He came as a lamb, when He comes back it will be as a lion. As it says in Ephesians, it's time to don the full armor of God... and as it says in Luke, if you don't own a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
