Here’s a doctored version of a quote from a famous man who hated the church of Jesus Christ, and any semblance of God.
“The religions are all alike, no matter what they call themselves. They have no future- certainly none for us. Our political persuasion, if it likes, may come to terms with the Church. So shall I. Why not? That will not prevent me from tearing up Christianity root and branch, and annihilating it in our country.”
Similar political winds are blowing in our country today. The list of indicators is long and complex. Religious people are asking a largely pagan court to tell them if they must obey rules and fiat pronouncements that clearly violate their core beliefs, the values that have greatly contributed to the mores and economic strengths of Western Civilization.
The guiding document of Christianity has, in the long ago, answered the conscience question, plainly. The story is written in the early chapters of the Acts of The Holy Spirit through the Apostles. Here’s a sample: Acts 5:29 “But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: "We ought to obey God rather than men.” Much of the history of the last two thousand years is stained with the blood of martyrs who counted truth more sacred than life itself.
True, informed and awake Christians believe that what we call abortion is the murder of a fetus, fetus being the Latin for BABY. Must we pay for such murder? No, not even under the threat of death itself or any lesser threat.
The author of today’s quote is the modern age template for all Megalomaniacs who hate God and are attempting to annihilate any semblance of Jesus Christ from the public arena. They have nearly accomplished this goal. May they find a similar end as the man whom I quote. Here’s the accurate quote:
“The religions are all alike, no matter what they call themselves. They have no future- certainly none for the Germans. Fascism, if it likes, may come to terms with the Church. So shall I. Why not? That will not prevent me from tearing up Christianity root and branch, and annihilating it in Germany.” Adolf Hitler.
That the spirit that drove Fascism is alive and well in America is undeniable. Note this word from a Christian writer in the 2nd century: “When people hear us speak God’s Word they marvel at its beauty and power. When they see what little impact it has on our own daily lives, they laugh and poke fun at what we say.”
Our hope is in Jesus Christ and that the Holy Spirit will turn our hearts to genuine faith.
