A baby faced devil is still a devil. It’s one of those things that seems to have escaped us, even though we have seen throughout history that the look of a man is irrelevant as far as potential for evil is concerned.
I am more interested in an individual’s character, in the words that he speaks, and the passion he speaks them with because it is those things, the nuances of them, that reveal the heart of a man far more readily than his appearance.
I’ve run across men in three-piece suits that were hard-pressed to put a coherent sentence together, and I’ve run across men in overalls with blistered hands, that spoke with an eloquence likened unto poetry. Appearance is meaningless. Content is everything.
I have children. Therefore I have a vested interest in the future of this country. I cannot bring myself to sit idly by, twiddling my thumbs, scoop out some navel lint, and wait for the rapture bus to come rolling by. Even if I believed that we would be caught up into glory before all the nasty bits of the Bible start coming to pass, it would not absolve me of my responsibility to be salt and light. It would not absolve me of my responsibility to sound the alarm when I saw danger on the horizon.
I’ve been watching the twenty some odd individuals vying for the Democrat party nomination intently. Most of them are certifiable, droning on about policies that would bankrupt the country if implemented, and making promises they have no intentions of keeping. It’s as if they’ve all come down with logorrhea, and they can’t help themselves.
As I said, most of them are too crazy to be dangerous, but there is one that has my warning bells going off, and not in a good way. To look at him, one would think he is harmless. To hear him speak, one immediately realizes there is a deep seeded hatred for the people of God, the ways of God, and the Word of God. The rage this individual feels towards Christians is almost uncontainable, and once in a while, it comes spilling out. What is worth noting, is that he, himself identifies as a Christian, all while openly glorying in a lifestyle the selfsame God he claims to serve, condemns.
It’s beyond narcissism to call oneself a Christian, then proceed to systematically discount everything the Bible says because you think God was wrong. It’s beyond narcissism to call oneself a Christian, then equate Christianity to Islam and contend they are equally violent faiths.
Individuals who feel as though they are entitled to rewrite Scripture to suit their proclivities are inherently dangerous because once that horse has been let out of the barn, it’s next to impossible to corral it once more. Once you twist scripture to make one allowance, you’ll do it over and over again, and each time insist that you are doing God’s work, that you are noble and pure as the driven snow, when in fact you are living in rebellion, practicing that which God considers an abomination.
Listen to what such individuals say, the words they use, the hatred with which they address those who still insist on the truth of Scripture, and you just may get a glimpse of the future if ever such individuals gained power.
With love in Christ,
