When it comes to “fundamentally transforming America” into a living hell of Corporate State power over (happily) ignorant and dependent masses, who needs Barack Obama when you have…biblically illiterate, apathetic and detached “conservative Christians”?
Ever notice how “Christians”, including the most supposedly “conservative” in the camp, aren’t really all that into submitting to the clear truths of Scripture when those truths clash with their most cherished notions, traditions and pet idols?
It’s not just that American conservative Christians tend to sometimes under the radar reject Scripture as their consistent standard in life in ways that you have to really pay close attention or slow way down to notice. Oh no, we tend to openly, proudly and antagonistically rebel against the clarity of God’s Nature as revealed in His Word when it comes to any number of glaringly obvious, culture-defining concepts addressed lovingly by God with incredible clarity. (See also: How American Conservatives happily forge the chains of American Socialism.)
Think: “Public schools”. (See: Redeeming Children’s Education: Confronting Our Satanic Approach to the Pursuit of Knowledge.)
Or “Social Security”. (See: Are we all Socialists now?)
Or the fundamental evil of fiat currency and how it corrupts all things economic for the purpose of enslaving the masses and empowering the money-crafting elite. (See: Fiat $lavery: We have been bought and paid for…with nothing.)
Or…and here’s the biggie…the Word of God as the actual basis for law in His creation, including…[*shudder*]…2015 America. (See: Our Suicidal Lawlessness.)
Tackle any of these subjects directly with 100 self-identified “conservative Christians” in America and you’ll pro’ly find that well over
50 75 80 90 95 of ’em mostly just regurgitate political programming from their favorite Pagan Right “leaders” and “experts” rather than take any hard stands that might call those Pagan Right promoted notions of patriotism and pragmatic political theory into question.
It’s this Pagan Right approach to life in “the real world” – an approach that sets aside God’s Word for “what will really work here and now” – that has come to define even most conservative Christians in America, and, through them, the rest of the culture. (See: Confronting the Gay Orwellian Party: Dragging the Pagan Right out of the closet and into the light.)
Even open Pagans who don’t pretend to be Christians or conservative are beginning to notice some of the down side to this “conservative Christian”/Pagan Right-enabled approach to American life and culture.
Last week, the New York Post published an article entitled How a massive, silent cultural revolution has changed America, which included the following observation:
It happened without a Summer of Love, without Timothy Leary, without a groovy anthem or a shaggy new national look. In the past decade or so, there’s been a silent revolution in American culture, one at least as profound as the ’60s upheavals.
We’ve hardly taken notice of it, because it happened in people’s minds instead of in the streets, happened in ordinary people instead of in the elites and the punditocracy.
Compared to just a few years ago, we have a completely different set of ideas about what constitutes acceptable behavior. As Caitlyn Jenner puts it in her new reality show, “I’m the new normal.”
Notice the past tense of the article title there: Change isn’t coming. Cultural revolution isn’t on its way. It’s already here; much of it has already happened.
Also note that “Caitlyn” Jenner came out recently not only as a pretend woman, but also as a “Republican Christian”. (See: Bruce Jenner Transitions Into Republican Christian Woman.)
And why not?
Seriously; why not?!
If Republicans – and most Republican “Christians” – will not stand upon the only basis for true, objective, unchanging reality – the Nature of God as revealed in His Word – then what is their basis for expecting the definition and application of any term or concept to remain fixed?
Really now, “Republican Christians”, answer this question: By what standard are you operating here?
If it is the shifting opinions of men, then you have no ultimate argument against Jenner’s claim to Republican Christian womanhood…or anything else.
The article continued, eventually offering up the following featured quote:
. . . Increasingly, we don’t want to judge others for anything, even if what they’re doing is destructive.
This is what it looks like when a people are given over by God to their own prideful desires.
This is what it looks like when “We the People” claim to be God and act accordingly. (See: We the people…are not God.)
The NY Post piece wrapped up with a little glimpse to what we have to look forward to next:
Let’s hope that, 15 years from now, another cultural revolution has followed — and Americans will be able to think whatever they want without fear of condemnation.
There you have it – the clearly stated goal of “We the People” as god in America: We want to be able to think and do whatever we want without any fear of consequences. (See also: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.)
That is the black heart of America.
That’s the driving desire of its proud, rebellious soul.
That’s what we’ve become here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.
We’re gonna do what we wanna do, and no God or god will get in our way. We define what is right. We define what is just. We define what is true. We’re America!
…and, as a result, we’re just about dead as a culture.
Lord willing, repentance will come on a grand scale, bringing loving, life-bringing submission to Christ as King in practice in the realms of law, economics, education, art and everything else. (See: Art, math, beauty, logic, law and economics…it’s all about Him.)
Lord willing, and by His grace, the same professing Christians who led the culture to ruin by conforming to the world they were commissioned to transform will be moved to lead the land in repentance, submission and restoration by way of the Gospel-fueled Great Commission:
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” ~ Matthew 28:18-20
Wouldn’t that make for some interesting NY Post articles?
