Without God all things are permitted.Fyodor Dostoevsky
Do not defile yourselves by any of these things by which the nations whom I am driving out of your way have defiled themselves. Because their land has become defiled, I am punishing it for its wickedness, by making it vomit out its inhabitants. You, however, whether natives or resident aliens, must keep my statutes and decrees forbidding all such abominations by which the previous inhabitants defiled the land;Leviticus 18:24-27
Commenting on the arrest of a gay married Democrat Judge with adopted children and strong supporter of “drag queen story time” for child porn this week Don Surber asks a question:
Why don’t we oppose perversion anymore?
That answer is actually pretty easy. We are divided into two societies in the west. The Christian society that we always had and the secular society of the left where Christianity is rejected. The initial trigger was the removal of prayer in schools and began in earnest when the left embraced abortion which caused Christians who actually believed in, you know Christianity, to migrate to the GOP. Their embrace of Gay Marriage cemented the change and their demands for Transgenderism put the exclamation point.
While some might not think this is a big deal, the truth is that the rejection of religion in general and Christianity in particular (with its roots in Judaism) reduces man to what he is without God. Simply an animal that exploits their environment to satisfy one’s individual desires.
The problem being for the left of course that one still needs the votes of Christians to get elected (except for elections when one steals it of course) and thus a facade of respectability must be retained, as John put it
And this is the verdict, that the light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed. But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.John 3:19-21
The farther we walk from God the more we become that revert from children of God with an eternal soul to the other half of our nature, the animal no different than any other simply with a higher capacity to use tools to satisfy our desires and impose our will.
All of what we are seeing is the animal in us undoing civilization and using the tools of the modern world to satisfy their desires for power, control, wealth, or sexual satisfaction, or to put it simply, to elevate their desires over all and for those ends any means is allowed.
It’s the sin of pride on steroids’.
So to answer Don Surber’s question: Why don’t we oppose perversion anymore, the answer is simply, because we’ve abandoned any believe in anything bigger than ourselves, namely God and thus are embracing the finite animal we are rather than our eternal soul.
It will have a high cost.
