I asked the Lord during prayer time why it is that the world hates Christians more than any other faith. I heard Him in my heart confirm this passage of Scripture to me:
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19).
I knew it was Him telling me this. It completely explained the hatred, the killing, and the total intolerance of the message of the Gospel to those who reject it. The message of the Gospel is that we are sinners and are in darkness. Jesus asks that we acknowledge that we are sinners, and that we need Him as our Savior. Repent and believe – that is it. But men loved darkness rather than light.
The left wing tolerance of radical Islam
I have wondered for a very long time why liberals are so accepting of Islam, even when they see what fundamentalist Islam causes people to do. Even after the most grisly attacks by Islamic terrorists, I read in left leaning articles how we should respect the “prophet” Mohammad, and how we should not antagonize Muslims. Instead of outrage at the senseless killing, they attempt to explain it away!
They would rather embrace a barbaric religion, in which the slaughter of people is accepted and expected , than to accept Christianity – a relationship with Jesus Christ to be made acceptable to our God (the TRUE God) in heaven.
The Bible is on a list of books to be removed from libraries
The Holy Bible, the most read book in the world, is being considered for removal by many libraries across America. The Qur’an is not on that list. The Book of Mormon is not on the list. Books on witchcraft are safe. But our Holy Bible is on shaky ground.
“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain” (1 Corinthians3:18-20).
When I read “If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise” I think of academia, and how puffed up many of them are in their ‘book knowledge’; and how rejecting they are of the things of God. In essence, God is saying: Those who are held in high esteem because of their schooling and degrees, but reject My words, let him become what the world considers a “fool” and trust in Me to gaintrue wisdom.
Colleges, professors and other Christian haters
I have written articles about college campuses, and how the professors are determined to reprogram the heart and mind of any students who profess to be Christian. It is happening all over this country and the world. These people consider Bible believing Christians to be fools, and in dire need of a large dose of their “truth.”
We know that what they have to offer is toxic and contrary to everything the Bible teaches. Some students stand their ground and fare well despite the atheist teachings. Others succumb to the lies, and walk away from the truth of the Bible.
Many young people who fall away from the faith, decide to explore other religions. I’ve noticed in my research that many of these prodigals find Hinduism very appealing. They love the idea of reincarnation and being able to reach higher plateaus as they return to earth after death. They serve many gods, not realizing that these so-called gods are demons.
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). (Emphasis mine)
Many immature Christians practice Yoga and argue that it is innocuous to their faith in Christ. What they do not understand is that every “pose” in Yoga is submission to a Hindu god. They leave themselves open to the Kundalini spirit, which enters them though their spine. I wrote a piece about this:
Christian Yoga: Bringing the Kundalini Spirit Into the Church
Truly, the only religion that makes a person accountable for their sins is Christianity. It is also the only religion which offers a way for a person to be made right with God; forgiven of their sins by faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross, and His glorious resurrection!
But men loved darkness rather than light. How dreadfully sad. But no one is beyond the reach of our God. Nothing is too difficult for Him. Continue to pray for the lost among your family and friends. Share Christ boldly. You may not see the results after you plant the seed, but don’t forget Who is Lord of the harvest!
“Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest” (Matthew 9:38).
