Enemy-occupied territory – that is what this world is. Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us to take part in a great campaign of sabotage. ~ C.S.Lewis, Mere Christianity

As “AdolphusW” expressed it on one of my threads, “the ‘world’ has hated Christ since the very beginning, and as he said at the time, the world would hate all those who truly follow him. We are now on the front lines of the spiritual battle that rages behind the scenes, behind the curtain, as it were. It only makes sense that Satan would set out to destroy America because America was good, infused with Christian values and as a nation itself was salt and light. Mere Christianity can be a powerful tool indeed when applied correctly”. [end]

It isn’t simply an accident that liberals are wrong on every issue, there is a reason for their madness, since liberalism does truly represent darkness. It should shock us that we’ve lost the culture war (perhaps “shame” would be a better word) but it shouldn’t shock us that we see this very open hostility toward biblical Christianity, toward God himself now that we have lost the culture.

Liberals will transform America if they have the power to do so, and with the current corrupt structure that represents itself as the US government, they are well on their way to achieving that. They aren’t simply misguided souls who will eventually see the light and embrace what works. They are instead, blind fools who only seek more darkness and are repelled by light, pathogens who flee from salt. Liberalism as we understand it only exists in the West. We might note the similarities to the Marxist maxim that conquered Russia and China, but “liberalism” is a western creation. Mere Christianity however, can provide both salt, and light in overcoming whatever brand of liberalism is on show.

Liberalism primarily is an active rejection of Western Christianity, which is why it is so dangerous. It isn’t that liberals have never embraced Christianity, indeed, most even today could state the basics. The grave danger is that liberalism deliberately sets itself up as an active enemy of God. Of all possible options on virtually any subject, God’s way, the biblical way, will always be at the bottom of the list; so far down that there is not even a consideration of trying it. That is the liberal mindset, which is no match however, for mere Christianity.

Current Western liberalism then, has descended into complete madness and delusion. I’m not sure that this condition has ever existed in humanity in our history, at least not on the scale we see today, but this mindset totally dominates the Democrat party and, let’s face it, also strongly influences the Republican party.

There is a reason that the Democrat party is mutating now at an accelerating and alarming rate, since the party is nothing but a collection of various and diverse groups bound together by hatred of our culture, of western culture as a whole, and ultimately of strong Christian values. In order to maintain “peace” on the democrat plantation, all groups must accept the latest move to the next lower rung on the ladder to depravity and evil. This is why the black community which overwhelmingly in the past has opposed the homosexual/perversion agenda, now does so, and why the pervert community then embraces the black community’s war on “law and order” and cops. All depraved lives matter, so to speak. Enter mere Christianity.

Less than 20 years ago, Hillary Clinton spoke in opposition to homosexual marriage and illegal immigration, yet she totally embraces these and similar platforms today. Did she truly change? Of course not, all that any democrat leaders crave is power, money, and corruption, and they are perfectly willing to adjust positions to stay centered within the party as its fringe groups move it ever leftward. Even as far left as protecting the evils of Islamic Jihadist Muslims, ISIS, ISIL, and IS, while going full bore on persecuting Christianity, even on our own soil.

Which is why we have strong, black Christian writers like Lloyd Marcus expressing themselves by going for the jugular: “For the life of me, I do not understand Christians who say they cannot vote for Trump. Under Obama, leftists/progressives have made huge gains in their efforts to make Christianity illegal in America.

Remember the old hymn, “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus”? Who could imagine a day would come in America when following Jesus would land you in jail? Criminalizing Christianity is happening and gaining momentum“. [end]

Powerful Leftists have decreed that following Jesus in America today is akin to hate speech, resulting in Christians being punished, stereotyped, marginalized, intimidated, fired, and even jailed.

More Marcus: “For the record, I do not understand how anyone can put Trump’s shortcomings in the same league as Hillary’s decades of documented evil corruption; lives lost, and calculated destruction of peoples’ lives, especially women, for personal political gain”.

“Christians are being ordered to surrender their children for anti-Christian indoctrination. I am talkin’ government confiscating your children for the sole purpose of teaching them to embrace and celebrate what God calls sin. This Orwellian anti-Christ persecution will surely double down, probably triple down, under Hillary. Who will stop her? No one. This is why a long list of prominent Christian leaders are begging Christians to vote in this fast approaching presidential election”.


“For the spiritual defense of our kids alone, how can a Christian justify sitting out the election, writing in their favorite candidate or writing in Daffy Duck? How can a Christian allow the furtherance of our government mandating a turning away from God?” [end]

In defense of refusing to vote for Trump (and full disclosure, there are some Facebook friends who totally disagree with me on this) I read Christians saying, “Voting for the lesser evil is still evil.” While that sounds pious and profound, it is simply not true. As Christians, we know we live in a fallen sinful world. Therefore, nothing and no one is perfect. Sometimes voting for the lesser evil is the moral and upright thing to do. Mere Christianity.

The Bible says “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Therefore, one could argue that every vote you have ever made is in reality you choosing the lesser of two evils. Not voting for Donald Trump is a vote for Hillary Clinton; indeed, it becomes a vote for Christian persecution.

Brother and sister Christians, God calls us to be salt and light. Salt makes a difference. So does light. Be both to the glory of Jesus Christ, and mere Christianity.

We have two bits of evidence about the Somebody. One is the universe He has made. If we used that as our only clue, I think we should have to conclude that He was a great artist (for the universe is a very beautiful place), but also that He is quite merciless and no friend to man (for the universe is a very dangerous and terrifying place.) … The other bit of evidence is that Moral Law which He has put in our minds. And this is a better bit of evidence than the other, because it is inside information. You find out more about God from the Moral Law than from the universe in general just as you find out more about a man by listening to his conversation than by looking at a house he has built. ~ C.S.Lewis, Mere Christianity
