"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." — Ephesians 6:12
In this world there are two schools of thought, the progressive liberal and the conservative. I am not talking about the classical liberalism of John Locke or our founding fathers. I am talking about the progressive liberalism that we call Statism today. I am talking about the progressive liberalism that began at the turn of the twentieth century in England and the United States and is akin to Fabian Socialism. This is the liberalism that is commonly referred to in the parlance of today’s political speech.
Without beating around the bush, I believe the battle being fought in America today goes beyond politics; right vs. left. It is a spiritual battle; good vs. evil.
The mindset of the American left is a spirit of Antichrist which is man making himself God.
Before writing me off as a Bible nut, please hear me out. Understanding this reality will explain much of the left's behavior. Because they believe man is God, in their insane arrogance, the left think they can fix everything from legislating equal outcomes to saving or destroy the planet. This is the God complex of the statist. It is the arrogance of the Antichrist.
Make no mistake about it folks; we are in a spiritual battle. Ask yourself specifically, what about Sarah Palin inspires such visceral hatred from the left? The word is "wholesome" and a public pronouncement of a love of God.
For the most part, Palin promotes love for God, family and country. She is passionately determined to thwart Obama's plan to "fundamentally transformed America."
While realizing Palin is human and does not walk on water, Palin epitomizes heartland principles and values embraced by most Americans. Thus, we are Palin and Palin is us.
The large number of Christians in the Tea Party believe in right and wrong. The left has a huge problem with the concept of right and wrong. Their religion of liberalism embraces Moral Relativism.
For these reasons, Palin and Tea Party are as repulsive to liberals as showing Dracula the cross.
There is definitely an anti-wholesome, anti-goodness vibe coming out of Hollywood. Hollywood leftists are vehemently anti-death penalty. They rally around convicted murderers. These Hollywood libs pride themselves as being Lords of Compassion and Tolerance.
Remember that brief moment when progressives huffed and puffed about how awful it was to use a bulls-eye on a map of electoral districts in play? When they decried the Right for its violent rhetoric. It all seems so long ago. Today, the fashion is to imply assassination is a proper tactic — when the target is Sarah Palin. Jeff Poor of the Daily Caller:
The latest example of this is an appearance on Monday's "The Adam Carolla Show" comedian Christopher Titus may have waded into that territory. In responding to a question about former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's appearance on "Fox News Sunday," in which Palin defended her interpretation of what happened during Paul Revere's pre-Revolutionary War famous ride, Titus launched into a description of what he would do if Palin were elected.
"You know what man?" Titus said. "I am going to literally - if she gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready -- because you know what? It's for my country. It's for my country. If I got to sacrifice myself, it's for my country."
Too bad that Governor Palin no longer enjoys Secret Service protection, for Titus deserves a visit. If this is not incitement to violence, what is it? Titus, for those unfamiliar with his name, once starred in a prime time sitcom named for him, and is no obscure showbiz figure, regularly getting gigs on major TV series.
And yet, these same libs have a cow whenever someone merely suggests to a woman that she think twice before aborting her baby. Tell me there ain't something spiritually wrong with such a mindset.
Because liberal elitists think man is God, they assume moral authority to confiscate as much control over our lives as we simple-minded God-fearing peons will allow them, including procreation. I have seen a government-funded brochure that basically said birthing babies is an irresponsible abuse of the planet.
Folks, this is leftist control-freak hogwash! The seven billion people who live on the planet could fit in Texas enjoying about the same amount of living space as residents of New York. God said be fruitful and multiply. But then, what the heck does God know?
In her book Godless, Ann Coulter said, "If a Martian landed in America and set out to determine the nation's official state religion, he would have to conclude it is Liberalism, while Christianity and Judaism are prohibited by law."
I concur with Ms. Coulter. The mainstream media is controlled by zealots of liberalism who I believe are driven by a spirit of Antichrist; man is God. Thus, only man can and will fix everything.
Why does the left aggressively demand that we show utmost respect for every religion under the sun except Christianity? Remember when libs Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar stormed off the set of The View TV program when they concluded Bill O'Reilly discussed the world's Muslim problem?
And yet, Rosie O'Donnell outrageously stated "Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America." Not one peep of disagreement or disapproval from the left.
Islam suppresses women. And yet, liberal self-proclaimed feminists Goldberg, Behar, and O'Donnell illogically defend Islam. These three feminists despise the extraordinarily successful Christian liberated woman, Sarah Palin. Rosie O'Donnell even lamented that Osama bin Laden did not get a fair trial.
These women would seem to have issues with America and Christians; a spirit of Antichrist. At the center of Christianity is a divine Jesus. If Jesus is God, the left is not.
Even our most liberal president ever, Obama, dissed heartland Americans for bitterly clinging to their god and guns. Would a true Christian berate folks for finding security in trusting God?
Like an episode of Star Trek, the left believes universal peace can be achieved via America apologizing and admitting to the world that we suck, surrendering our power, signing treaties and singing a few verses of Kumbaya.
They believe the greatest source of evil in the world is warmongering Christian white guys like George Bush. If only Bush had "Given peace a chance."
Liberals always cater to man's lowest base instincts. They hate standards for behavior, labeling all rebuke of bad behavior as being intolerant and judgmental. And yet, they believe without divine influence, man is capable of someday achieving universal peace — a totally absurd idea. There will never be universal peace as long as the hearts of man are not divine. The only thing we can do is to protect our nation from those who wish to destroy it, whether from within or abroad.
Christians believe that though we strive to do the right thing, the heart of man is critically flawed which is why we were in need of a savior, Jesus Christ.
Obama's promise to "fundamentally transform America" is a spiritual attack on our freedom, liberty, and culture.
Despite the left's relentless attempts to ban God from America's public square, the emergence and power of the Tea Party tells me God is still on our side.
Mr. Obama, though your liberal zealots perceive you to be "the messiah," God is still on the throne. Come November 2012, you're fired!
