In light of 9/11 tomorrow and our President's speech tonight, I can't help but think of how diverse our nation is and how it fills its role in the world. In my worldview, God established the United States of America as the first nation in history to be founded as a Christian nation from the start. A nation whose initial purpose was to be a light to the world and a major player in the historical role of evangelizing the nations.
So what is the big deal about that? Evil. Plain and simple. There are evil forces in the world that work to oppose ALL things established by God. His initial creation, His chosen people, His church, and even America and other nations since our founding that have been instrumental in furthering God's plans.
In comes ISIS. Just the next player in the role of opposition to all things Jehovah. Based in the demonic religion of Islam. Does that offend you? It shouldn't if you understand that Muhammad was so engulfed in demonic activity as he devised the religion of worshiping Allah. Satan is the father of all lies according to the apostle Paul. Any religious force that is based in lies and opposes Jehovah and Jesus Christ is powered by evil. Jesus said if you are not for me, you are against me. The prince of the world is Satan and he directly opposes the things of God.
That's the problem. Our leaders and the progressives of the world don't ever like to admit that evil exists. Evil exists only if God exists and has influence in the world. If we can take Sec. Kerry's stance that all these groups just get misunderstood and peace is possible if we can just come to terms, we don't have to acknowledge evil and thereby God. No God, no judge. No judge, no absolute truth. No absolute truth, I can do what's right in my own eyes.
Don't be afraid to stand up and call evil- evil. It's not unloving or narrow minded. It's not ignorant or radical right wing fanaticism. It's right. Let's do what's right.
