With today's passing of Antonin Scalia, the laughably unfree "land of the free" is almost certain to see a significant slide even further down the rat-hole of DC-down tyranny and the perversion of law. A proud, unrepentant nation that exalts its "freedom" and "liberty" to enjoy "legal" porn, "legal" divorce on demand, "legal" strip clubs in "legal" casinos, "legal" adultery-themed businesses like Ashley Madison, "legal" "gay marriage," "legal" child sacrifice and, of course, the "legal" right to openly worship any false god one chooses, including Allah and even Satan himself – that "land of the free" is even now experiencing the wrath of God pouring down upon it, as has been the case for generations now. Yet, amazingly, and as a testament to the blindness of the unrepentant, few seem to even recognize what's going on…and of those who do recognize it, few are yet willing to admit why and repent accordingly.
In blind idolatry of the American State and its advocates, masses of professing Christians in America will predictably and right on cue use this as an occasion not to advance the Gospel-fueled repentance and submission of America to Christ the King as King in practice and in detail where law and civil government are concerned, but instead as another "compelling reason" to advance the cause of the Republican Party….again…
Once again, fear will grip the hearts of these professing evangelicals and fear will motivate them to play the same old games and pursue the same old secular routes to salvation.
Once again, Americans will turn to secular saviors rather than to Christ, the Devil will laugh, and the wrath of God will continue to flow.
News of Scalia's passing during Obama's presidency will trigger heart-gripping, chill-inducing fear, and that fear will once again be used by the Pagan Political Right to strengthen its already iron grip over the hearts and minds of millions of professing Christians in America.
Fear, fear, fear…panic, panic, panic…
American Christianity, and thereby American culture, is now dominated and defined by fear of man and fear of the world in direct opposition to the repentance-inspiring, obedience-producing, and life-restoring fear of the Lord that can actually save American lives and culture through the Gospel-fueled Great Commission. (For more on this subject, please read The Fear-Driven Voting of America's "Conservative Christians" and The Fear-Fueled Politics of American Statism.)
In the areas of law and civil government?
Nah, we're way too proud and way too smart for that sort of thing.
We're America, after all.
We'd much rather be practical and continue to pour our passion, time, talent and treasure into the Republican Party as opposed to taking up our cross for the sake of Christ and His Gospel-fueled Great Commission to repent and obey Him in all things…including law and civil government.
It matters not how clearly God has spoken.
It matters not how plain the Republican record of rank Statism and anti-Christian approaches to law, economics, politics and civil government.
We hear Christ's crystal clear claim to Lordship over every realm of life, and what is our answer? What is the typical fear-driven, self-centered American evangelical answer to the proposition of Christ as King over us?
Consider the following reaction of record, which so closely (and so painfully) models our own:
He said to the Jews, "Behold your King!" They cried out, "Away with him, away with him, crucify him!" Pilate said to them, "Shall I crucify your King?" The chief priests answered, "We have no king but Caesar." So he delivered him over to them to be crucified.
~ John 19:14-16
So the next time you're wondering why this is all happening – why we have "legal" porn, "legal" divorce on demand, "legal" strip clubs in "legal" casinos, "legal" adultery-themed businesses like Ashley Madison, "legal" "gay marriage," "legal" child sacrifice and the "legal" right to openly worship any false god one chooses, including Allah and even Satan himself – don't blame Obama or the democrats or MSNBC or the LGBT lobby. Not first, anyway.
It's American evangelicals who are most responsible for this nightmare…and we need to be lovingly confronted and corrected with that fact.
