EDITORS NOTE: With the rise of Anti-Christ hatred for Believers is on the rise, it is now the time for Christians to stand up and preach the Gospel now more than ever.
Like the writer of this article, I too believe we may see a reformation or revival here in America and Lies of the Devil will be at the frontline fighting for the Truth.
Anti-Christian Sentiment on the Rise in America
Several Democrat senators have used the confirmation hearings of the most exclusive club in America to lay down an unconstitutional requirement for qualification to public service.
At a hearing in June, Sen. Bernie Sanders questioned the fitness of Wheaton College alumnus Russell Vought for the post of deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget. Mr. Vought had written an article in which he said Muslims “do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ his Son, and they stand condemned.”
Sen. Sanders accused Mr. Vought of religious bigotry, saying, “In my view, the statement made by Mr. Vought is indefensible, it is hateful, it is Islamophobic, and it is an insult to over a billion Muslims throughout the world.”
This line of questioning – or perhaps more accurately, this “inquisition” – amounts to a religious-based exclusion of Christians simply because of what they believe. There were no accusations of harmful behavior or violence toward anyone. Apparently, faith is enough to draw the ire of today’s Democrats.
It should be pointed out that the claim of exclusivity – i.e., that one’s religion is true while others are false – is not unique to Christianity. Islam is well known for holding that view, except that sharia law, unlike Christianity, demands not that you love the nonbeliever, but that you tax, enslave, or kill him. However, the Senate will not interrogate Muslims on their beliefs, because that would constitute “Islamophobia.”
This growing hatred of all things Christian is a consequence of the sexual revolution, which created the politics of promiscuity and called for a world without the God who says “no.” As the repository for traditional sexual morality, Christianity is viewed as the mortal enemy of the “gay rights” movement, the abortion industry, and the new transgender obsession.
Those who were once thought of as hardworking, God-fearing people living lives of Christian decency and common sense are now slandered as “deplorables” and “extremists” by the elites of the Democratic Party and the media that enable them.
The entertainment world, sports, colleges and universities, major corporations, government bureaucracy, and even members of the United States Senate have bought into this cultural hedonism. There is no room for Bible-believing Christians in their new world.
It is often said that Christianity thrives in persecution. If so, then it may be about to see its very best days in the United States of America. Is suffering the slap in the face that will awaken the church from its infatuation with comfort and compromise?
It seems likely that we will soon know.
