Humankind is clearly afflicted with a personality disorder. Newsletter #4
Humankind, originally created to be in the image of God, seems to reflect another image, one that is capable of immense evil. Humankind is clearly afflicted with a personality disorder. St Paul discusses this in great detail in Romans chapter 7 and specifically in verses 22 thru 25: “For I joyfully delight in the law of God in my inner self, but I see another law and rule of action in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and subduing me and making me a prisoner of the law of sin which is within my members. Wretched and miserable man that I am! Who will set me free from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then on the one hand I myself with my mind serve the law of God, but on the other, with my flesh the law of sin.” There is not one amongst us that has not experienced that internal conflict! And that conflict internally and personally is reflected and magnified out onto the world stage and at every level in between.
For a long time, Satan has fooled humankind by denying himself. “Satan doesn’t exist. You can’t say that something is good or evil – it is all relative – what is good for one person may be bad for another. Just do what feels good.” But as we are now in the last days, and Satan knows his time is limited, he has put the pedal to the metal, so to speak, and forcing his agenda where ever and whenever he possibly can.
To me, one very clear expression of this conflict between good and evil can be clearly seen when we look at our government. We have the liberal regressives determined to destroy anything good – the family – through the LGBT movement; child sacrifice – abortion on demand up to and beyond birth; freedom – through the socialist agenda and gun control; religious freedom – through censorship and the courts. And more, lots more.
Christianity, and all good people for that matter, have to wake up to what is happening and fight back. We can speak out, vote, resist destructive legislation and generally stand up for righteousness and goodness. Pray to see clearly through the clouds of confusion (everything is relative) spread by Satan’s minions and read the bible for guidance. In any war, evil strikes first, but good can then retaliate and defeat the evil.
May God bless you and help you see clearly.
