A Reprobate Mind :: By Jim Towers

It’s epidemic these days; everywhere you look there is evidence of people with a reprobate mind. You’ve seen them on the internet with faces tattooed and/or with piercings throughout it. Today you can even see them with tattooed eyeballs.

Yesterday on Facebook I even saw a grown, overweight man dressed in a tutu with long stockings and a net brassiere covering his sagging man-breasts. His sported a beard, and on his huge feet he was wearing size twelve pink patent-leather women’s shoes. He looked absolutely disgusting. He was waiting his turn in front of the lady’s restroom in a department store.

In society there are some that are still able to hide behind a façade of normalcy, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Take, for example, the well-respected priests and other clergy, politicians, coaches, and other dominant figures in our culture and the world at large. They have no shame or sense of right or wrong. Indeed, there have always been such people, but did you ever in your life see so many in-your- face apostates, drug-addled people and psychopaths?

The Democrat governor of New York signed a bill that would allow mothers to abort their innocent children up to the moment of birth, and Virginia’s Democrat governor followed that up by supporting allowing the unwanted baby to be born and left to die or be killed. And others share that belief. See this article. Did you ever notice that most if not all Democrats deny the sanctity of life and instead do what they can to destroy it? This can only be the work of the devil.

With open devil worship growing by leaps and bounds, we Christians must be trying to stem the tide. Many of these people pretend to be benevolent, loving and kind, but their works belie their claim. “By their fruits you shall know them.”

Such were the people at the time of the Great flood and during the time of Sodom and Gomorrah. They were given over to a reprobate mind; their thoughts were continually evil. Life was cheap. Is it any wonder that God had to destroy them? “As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

We stand at the crossroads of good versus evil; the great falling away has begun, and soon – very soon – the tribulation period will begin in earnest. The time will come when such who practice evil will all be left behind to face the tribulation just ahead.

The Bible clearly says that, when a person insists on denying God, God in turn will give that person over to a reprobate mind, which could be the point of no return. Now that, my dear friends, is a profound thought – which brings us to this next point.

In the 1970s, psychiatric deinstitutionalization began in our country; today over 2.2 million people do not receive any psychiatric treatment at all except for medication, which they may or may not take. They have all taken to the streets, and it’s beginning to look like a scary zombie movie out there.

Since 1976, there have been 20 mass murders a year on average. J. Reid Meloy, Ph.D., is a forensic psychologist who studied them. He found that mass murderers suffer mental illnesses that range from chronic psychotic disturbances and schizophrenia to paranoid disorders. They have the paranoid, narcissistic, and schizoid traits of personality disorders. These were not normal people who simply “snapped.” Instead, they suffered for years from untreated or poorly treated mental illness. Almost half of all mass killers had depression, learning disabilities, or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Forty percent had alcohol or drug dependencies.

But regulations hinder treatment. For example, families can’t commit someone unless they’ve already proved to be a threat to themselves or someone else. Judges cannot order seriously mentally ill people to stay in treatment. People are not allowed to remove guns from mentally ill people who threaten themselves or others. Reversal of these rules would allow family members to get treatment for their mentally ill loved ones and protect society.

As if that wasn’t enough to make your liver quiver – there are multitudes of users of illicit drugs as well. Since money compels people to become dealers, the drug trade just continues to grow, and there is hardly a family in the United States who hasn’t been impacted by its proliferation and/or use. Opioid addiction is on the rise, which can lead to a reprobate mind.

Some would say that demonic possession and mental illness are two different things, but I would submit to you that a well-balanced person is one who knows Christ in a personal way and is living a Christ- centered life. Nevertheless, there are different levels of spiritual growth, attesting to the power of God’s written word – the Bible.

That being said, these same people could have lived a fulfilling life had they repented and received Christ. Jesus was always healing the demon-possessed. The demoniac in the gospel of Mark rejoiced when he was set free from demonic possession.

We can alleviate all care and troubling thoughts at the feet of Christ, casting all our care on Him and receiving in its place – wonderful peace of mind. God is the ultimate psychiatrist.

Common Sense Isn’t So Common Anymore :: By Jim Towers

If, like the Bible says, “The eyes are the mirror of the soul,” then we Christians have much to be concerned about. Foaming at the mouth atheists, homosexuals, radicals, and drug-addled criminals are today trying to dismantle our country – a country once deemed a Christian Nation. Their very eyes tell the story. The lives of extreme leftists imbue confusion, hate, greed and self-righteousness. It permeates their very souls.

Common sense is out of vogue, and these days it’s the person who acts erratic and speaks foolishness that gets noticed. You can see evil in their eyes.

Now that wouldn’t be so bad, but those who are willing to listen to these foolish and lost people are themselves acting and looking the part of complete lunatics, dancing naked in the streets of America to promote their evil lifestyles. Fancying themselves as liberators in their drug- and lust-induced delusions, they are only fooling themselves and will one day pay the ultimate price for their godlessness.

In one sense they are liberators, but the misguided Godless liberators only want to be liberated from the constraints of God – constraints that are given in the Ten Commandments for our own good; yet our countries’ leaders break them indiscriminately. In the book of Ecclesiastes (chapter 10, verse 2) it says, “A wise man’s heart is on the right hand – but the fool’s heart is on the left.”

I shall try to name the most influential and evil-possessed of the left, beginning with:

The Catholic Pope – Today, this common man is trying to unite Christianity with Islam (Chris-lam) – a faith that kills anyone who will not adhere to their evil religion, and he continues to harbor and protect pedophile priests and nuns. (More is being revealed on the inner workings of this cult as we speak.)

George Soros – Although a Jew by birth, he is a former Nazi sympathizer who fingered out his own during the holocaust and had them robbed and killed with no remorse – and he became a multi-billionaire intent on changing the face of the world.

Bernie Sanders – Is an advocate of the Saul Alinsky way of subversion (double speak), telling people what he thinks they want to hear. Here is a man who would sell his soul to the devil – that is if he believed in one.

Hillary Clinton – Is perhaps the deadliest woman in world history. Aside from the Jezebel of the Bible, she continues to leave a trail of dead bodies in her wake. Try not to get caught by her evil gaze.

Rapist, William Jefferson Clinton – The ultimate rapist with eyes filled with lust.

Barack Obama – Is a man who, in his first two times on the floor of the Senate (as a junior senator), advocated for late-term abortions and continues to fight for that evil right. This Muslim traitor to our Christian Nation deceived multitudes of “politically correct” people into voting him into office twice. There is too much to divulge about this man’s deception except to say that only the devil is capable of such deceit. This man can look you in the eye and lie through his big teeth. (Now there is talk of him running for president yet again!)

Nancy Pelosi – Encroaching dementia says it all, poor woman.

Maxine Waters – wacky – cowboy hat-wearing – congresswoman.

The perverted Podesta brothers, John and Tony – truly evil in every way.

Anthony Weiner…whose name reveals his obsession.

The newest Democrat to hit the stage is New York’s 14th congressional district representative, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. Talk about eyes of the soul – this woman is rabidly delusional, and it shows in so many other ways.

From this point on, there are simply too many other demented political leaders to mention.

On another note:

Sunday, our church, which has seating for 6,000, was filled to capacity. Running late, I took the very last chair in the very last row of the sanctuary. Our pastor delivered a good, pertinent message and afterward announced that we were observing the Lords Supper – as it was that time in the month.

As the elements were passed down the aisle, I noticed a young, dark-skinned East Indian man, whom I had never seen before, two seats away from me to my right. Wondering if he would partake of the elements, I watched to see if he would – he didn’t.

That’s when I realized that he might not be a Christian. And so as soon as the service ended, I made my way over to him and introduced myself.

“Hi, my name is Jim,” to which he replied in like manner. We sauntered out into the entranceway and stepped aside to let people pass and to carry on a conversation that went like this:

“Are you a Christian?” I asked.

“No, but my mother recently became one; I’m a Hindu.”

“Well then, what did you think of the service?”

“I enjoyed what the pastor said,” he replied.

“The pastor teaches from the Bible; do you own one?”

“Not yet” he replied.

“I’ve been studying the Bible for over forty years, and it has never failed me. In it you can find the word of God and the salvation message as well as comfort for the soul.” I showed him my well-worn fourth one. “It’s highlighted throughout with verses that are important to me” I said.

The young man (who appeared to be in his thirties) was intrigued, to say the least.

Next, I explained the difference between the Old and New Testaments and asked him to read it to seek God’s face prayerfully.

The last of the people swirled around us as they left for their cars.

The last thing I told him is that his mother had probably been praying for him to find the God of the Bible and His Glorious Son – Christ Jesus.

On my way home, I was elated that God had let me experience – yet again, a Divine Appointment.
