Politics and the Church – The Church v. the Angel of Light [Part 22]

The Angel of Light is always pursuing policies that create jealousy which leads to anger.  Dividing people, victimizing, blaming, and proposing solutions that continually fail, only leads down the path to jealousy.  It is a consistent liberal act aligning with Satan against God.  Jealousy in the Bible is a demon spirit.  Jealousy is feeling resentment because of another’s success or advantage.  The liberal platform will tell you that you are a victim and your failure is not your fault.  Liberal solutions fail, because they are meant to fail, so they continually place blame while never recognizing any accountability or personal responsibility of those they claim are victims.  Over time those that liberal policies convince to be victims, feel wronged because proposed solutions do not work.  As a result, jealousy, resentment, and anger are born.  Because jealousy leads to resentment which leads to anger, anger can motivate people to act and that act is usually in a violent, disruptive manner.  For example, a previous liberal president used a Cambridge police incident to convince those of African and Hispanic heritage that they could not trust the police. Instead of trying to bring the community together he used the incident to divide it.  In years since, it has only escalated.  Many now believe they cannot trust the police.  Liberal encouragement has the same goal as Satan, which is division, chaos, and rebellion.  Instead of all lives matter, we now have “Black lives” and “Blue lives” which matter and they are both, or so it seems, on opposite paths to destruction.

The Bible says,” Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.  For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil.  Do you want to be unafraid of the authority?  Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same.  For he is God’s minister to you for good.  But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.  Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.”  [Romans 13:2-5].   I must admit that I sometimes wonder about this passage.  I do fully support law enforcement but I do sometimes question the motive of those in authority who put laws in place.  In today’s world it just doesn’t seem to fall into place.  However, as Christians the Bible says we should respect authority.  We are not to speak evil of anyone…that’s a tough one,  be peaceable, be gentle, and be humble.  If you follow these rules, you will have no problem when dealing with authority, including the police.  The encounters with the police that can go horribly wrong are usually the result of arguing, blaming, aggressive acts, a disrespectful attitude, and a prideful approach.  This cannot always be easy as an officer may very well display the traits we are supposed to avoid,  but that’s a subject for another time.

There is something very dangerous about this scheme of division, victimization, and blaming.  It leads to resentment and anger.  If and when a Christian or conservative is permitted to speak on a college campus, many times they will be shouted down and there will be violent protests by angry liberals who want nothing to do with the truth of Jesus Christ.  Conservative Supreme Court justices get shouted down during confirmation hearings.  Even supporters of conservative values have been called everything from “deplorable” to the “dregs of society”.  Even the wearing of certain hats or display of certain bumpers stickers will spur violence.  The scheme of creating jealousy, resentment, and anger can create a mix of emotions that can lead some people to commit murder…employment disputes, marital disputes, envy over a pair of sneakers, a necklace, a car, or…believe it or not…money.  Those committing such acts are jealous and/or angry at what others have or believe it’s ‘their way or the highway’.

The Bible says that the first murder ever committed was when Cain killed Abel.  It was due to jealousy and anger.  The Bible says,“Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.  And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord.  Abel also brought of the first born of his flock and of their fat.  And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, but He did not respect Cain and his offering.  And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fellSo the Lord said to Cain,’Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen?  If you do well, will you not be accepted?  And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door.  And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.’  Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him.”  [Genesis 4:2-8].  Cain covets the respect God gave to Abel.  He is jealous and angry, and it leads to murder.  The liberal platform is very similar to the actions of Cain.  Liberal policy believes they do not have to follow God’s Word and that they can do as they please.  When their lives are not as prosperous as those who live for God, they covet what others have, get jealous and strike out in anger.

The liberal message is the exact opposite of the Word of God.  They do not preach personal responsibility.  They are proponents of irresponsibility, victimization, and blame.  The truth is that the power to do well is within everyone’s hands.  There is opportunity for everyone in America.  If you are poor, there are grants (free money) for school as well as loans for school.  There are jobs if you are willing to work.  You must be willing to start at the bottom and work your way up the ‘labor ladder’.  There are choices you can make on how you want to live.  There is the choice to live according to the Word of God or not.  Might this not be an occasional subject addressed from the pulpit.  Food pantries are not the answer to everyone’s plight.

Next week we will look at how the failures in many lives are the result of liberal policies and not race or financial status.  Many who have had to struggle in early life have found and utilized opportunity in America.  Those who do, have not listened to the liberal ‘gibberish’ that it is not possible in a society that is opposed to certain classes of people. Again, the power to do well is within every person’s hands.
