The age-old conflict between Good and Evil. God and his followers against Satan and his. It is a fact of life. A fact of life today and a fact of life in all times and all places. Satan rules the world. He always has. The Upright and Good are always in the minority. The godless. The immoral. The morally degenerate. The perverted. They like each others company. They are only really comfortable around others like themselves, others of the same outlooks, attitudes and beliefs. Being in the company of others like themselves validates their behavior. People like the support of the group. They look around at what others are doing. If others are doing a thing, they then feel free to do it themselves. If they are inclined towards certain kinds of behavior, they will choose the company of others who engage in that kind of behavior. People don't generally wish for the company of those who they know wouldn't approve of their behavior. Do the immoral and perverted have a strongly held philosophy? Yes. These days you hear their philosophy all the time. It is epitomized in a single word: "tolerance". Tolerance is their watchword, their slogan. They repeat it and repeat it over and over. They know that by the constant repetition they influence people, influence the masses. It is a really great sounding word, a great sounding idea. But what they really mean is tolerance of their own outlooks and conduct, tolerance of their own gross immorality and depravity. The word represents a direct hit against their mortal enemy, the person who they know will never accept their conduct: the upright, moral, God- fearing man who takes God's teachings seriously and tries to live by them. He is their nemesis. To them he is an intolerant bigot. He is their accuser. The world is just not big enough for both them and him. They want him eliminated. They speak about tolerance but what they really have in mind is elimination. They use the word "tolerance" with malice; it is a dagger aimed straight at the heart of the godly man. Back in the late 1960's and early 1970's the long-haired hippies living in communes and embracing drugs and free love had a similar watchword. Their watchword was "love". They kept repeating, "Let us all love one another." They meant, "Let us all be tolerant and accept one another. There is no right and wrong; there are no moral standards. Let us all just do as we wish, enjoy life to the hilt. Let us all just be one big happy, tolerant family." The immoral have other catchwords. Another is "social justice". They keep repeating that phrase. It is a great, lofty sounding phrase. What do they mean by the phrase? For them a "socially just" society is one without bias or discrimination, a society embodying their ideal of tolerance, a society where everyone accepts everyone regardless of their character or moral behavior. To obtain "social justice" they push for anti-discrimination laws. What they want to do is to force everyone into their own outlooks and values. Also, a "socially just" society is, to them, an egalitarian society - a society where everyone is equal. To bring this about they propose a very virtuous action on the part of government: to take from the rich and distribute to the poor. They have a great love of the poor - or is it a hatred for the rich? People are sheep. They follow the crowd. They look around to see what the crowd is doing and then they do it themselves. If other people are acting immorally then they feel free to do the same things themselves. America has become ever increasingly immoral. In an immoral society, a society where the general climate is immoral, people feel free to be as immoral as they please. There is no restraining force of social disapproval. That is America today. An America without a moral restraining force. America is now condoning and accepting that great sin of sins, homosexuality. The gays and lesbians have gained great power and influence in America. They have achieved so much influence, so much favorable press, that it appears that the majority in the upper layers of American society are sympathetic to them and their cause. This includes not only liberals but the majority of moderates and a great many conservatives (a person can be conservative on some issues and not others). The homosexuals have gained the hearts and support of those in power. This is true to such an extent that one never hears any politician ever say homosexuality is immoral. No politician will ever say that. It is just no longer socially acceptable to say that. No politician would dare, even if he thought it. It would bring down on him the ire of the homosexuals. And it would cost him too many votes - lose him his job. It would show despicable prejudice towards a poor, downtrodden group of people (the homosexuals). There is no politician who is willing to take the Biblical position on homosexuality. Everyone in power knows that the Bible is just an old-fashioned, outdated book - not to be taken seriously on the subject. On most issues political there is a diversity of opinion, people taking both sides of an issue. On this issue, however, there is unanimity. The sentiment among the people in power is with the homosexual - and against the Bible-believer. For them, the Bible-believer is simply an intolerant bigot, a bad person. The attitude toward the Bible- believer is almost unanimously hostile. The Bible-believer, the person who views homosexuality as high sin, is a bad person and the homosexual is a good person. Do we have some kind of moral inversion here? Does it sound like Satan is on the throne? Does it sound like the country has sold out to Satan? A person reveals himself by his friends. What is the meaning when a person's feelings are with the wicked and his hatreds are against the Righteous? I find this situation highly disturbing. America wasn't always like this. This is where liberalism has finally brought us. This is the mind that constant exposure to immorality, wickedness and depravity by Hollywood and the mass media has created. This is the mind that the lies of liberalism have created. A mind without knowledge of good and evil. A mind corrupted and depraved. That this once great and good country has come to this is, to me, just incredible - shocking. Sept 2010 More from SolitaryRoad.com:
