Recently I was listening to an interview with Chelsea Clinton who stated how serious of a Christian she was while promoting the cause for abortion. My brain froze when I heard her say that abortion actually helps the economy. How blind and hypocritical can one be?
This attitude portrays the hypocrisy that has swept our nation.
We are a nation that accepts pornography but supposedly hates sexual abuse.
We are a nation that doesn’t believe in gender, but fights for women’s rights.
We are a nation that believes no child should be left behind, but we have aborted over 60 million babies.
Many call themselves Christians while opposing God’s moral Law and everything Jesus and the early apostles penned and taught.
Reprobates legislate ungodly laws, and useful idiots swallow their Marxist ideologies and keep following them.
In political jargon, a useful idiot is a derogatory term for a person perceived as a propagandist for a cause of whose goals they are not fully aware and who is used cynically by the leaders of the cause. The term was originally used to describe non-Communists regarded as susceptible to Communist propaganda and manipulation.
Barrack Obama and his administration were a modern day national example of leaders who made many more Americans susceptible to its radical socialist propaganda. It did not originate with him but he and his administration pushed it far more than any other presidency. Our institutions of learning from kindergarten to college and university levels are now filled with this agenda. Hillary Clinton would’ve advanced this agenda to new levels had not God intervened.
What the Obama presidency did was open up a door to evil spirits and a blatant hypocrisy that was injected into our nation.
We’ve lost our moral compass. Confusion now marks our degenerated society. Hypocrisy rules and lawlessness has invaded our land.
“Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” (Mt. 23:28)
Jesus foretold of times like these (Mt. 24).
When any nation can no longer judge between good and evil, right and wrong, and light and darkness they are reprobates. The Bible describes such as “becoming futile in their thoughts, their foolish hearts being darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools…” (Rom. 1:21-22).
Why do these people and many of our political leaders keep suppressing the truth?
As this continually happens then God gives them up and gives them over to a debased or a reprobate mind.
Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness (v. 24).
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions (v. 26).
God gave them over to a debased mind (v. 28).
Paul describes such people, not only in his letter to the Romans but in his other epistles as well. Here’s one example in his letter to Titus:
“They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good” (Titus 1:16).
Here’s another description in his letter to Timothy:
“For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (2 Tim. 3:2-5).
How do people in such a condition even sleep at night? Isn’t it because most of them are blinded to their true condition and unaware that they are in fact under the wrath of God? How can they even look at themselves in the mirror each day? Isn’t it because they are grossly deceived?
I cannot imagine being so blind to your own sinfulness and the multitude of your own crooked ways, but yet having enough audacity to scrutinize the sins and faults of others. This is where much of our nation is right now. Just take the Kavanaugh hearings as one small but glaring example (actually its a big and historic example).
With so many in the House and Senate having succumbed to the same sexual sins they accuse Justice Kavanaugh of, how could they so proudly and arrogantly point the finger at him? It is the same condition as that of the Laodiceans of whom Jesus said believed they “were rich and in need of nothing”, but in fact were “wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.”
Among them there are still many church goers, but they are not humble, broken, and contrite. Rather, they fit the awful description of what the apostle described of a last day people in our aforementioned texts.
Here’s the good news! As this cloud of gross darkness continues to envelop our nation and the world, many more people are feeling its effects and being increasingly sensitized to the emptiness of their own hearts. I believe this clash between darkness and light could result in another civil war right here in our own nation, but will also result in another great awakening and an unprecedented harvest of souls. As always the devil has overplayed his hand, and what he meant for utter evil and destruction shall turn for great good.
I see an increase of judgment and revival moving simultaneously within our land. I see a remnant Church increasing in prayer, purity, and power.
