This is a follow-up post to the previous one. Someone get me some butter, because I am on a roll! lol (groan)
I just got to thinking about how incredibly successful Satan has been in seducing us. Basically he has accomplished an almost complete re-education of America. Think about it:
- Those opposed to abortion are now viewed as cruel, oppressive to women’s rights, mean, radical and right-wing nut-jobs instead of people committed to the noble pursuit of protecting unborn life.
- Anyone speaking an alternative voice about same-sex marriages and the homosexual lifestyle is now considered racist, hate-filled, intolerant, ignorant, and bigoted instead of someone who values and seeks to uphold the traditional view of marriage.
- If you speak out against pre-marital or even extra-marital sex you are viewed as prudish, old-fashioned, oppressive, and disconnected to reality instead of a person voicing concern over all of the many hurtful consequences of such life-style choices and offering a more meaningful and fulfilling alternative.
- If you are a believer in the Christian God and his Bible you are seen as an unlearned, intolerant, out-of-touch, back-woods hick instead of someone who has made a thorough, life-changing, informed choice to believe in a God of love.
I am reminded of what God said through Isaiah (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.
