There's a cancer in today's society eating away at the very heart of this great nation. It gnaws and chews, bites and spits, inch by inch, minute by minute, so subtle it goes unnoticed to most of it's unsuspecting victim's. Like the dark, mysterious, sinister figure in Mel Gibson's movie "The Passion of the Christ" it hovers over events that are taking place in our lives. This slow erosion over a period of years has finally taken it's toll on society exposing symptoms that tell us something is not right.
We see those symptoms in broken homes, relationships, a redefining of family, addictions, pornography, sexually transmitted diseases, abuse, hate, greed, dishonesty and rebellion of all types. What was once considered wrong 50 years ago is now right. White has become black and black has become white.
As this nation becomes more antagonistic towards America's Christian foundation as the moral code for right living, it's people will search for something else to fill the spiritual 'God void'. That would be themselves. They will become their own God/Goddess in complete charge of their destiny, establishing their own rules and morality. They will follow after any concept or movement that allows them the privilege of deity. They love their sin and rebellion.
Assisting in this quest for deity is the evolutionist 'theory' presented from day one as fact. That we all have the same origin--we came from the animal kingdom--Apes. If we act like animals it's merely the natural order of things. This allows society to be free'd up from any accountability or obligation to a higher power or authority. They can go on to recognize their own deity within themselves. They love their sin and rebellion.
The recent Da Vinci Code book and movie, based on lies and deception and promoted as fact and truth (again the reversal of white and black) also gives society the green light to deify themselves. By placing Jesus on a human level and stripping Him of His God/Man title he becomes subject to the same weaknesses and needs of man (sex with Mary Magdalene). The movie also questions the validity of God's Book, the Bible, further weakening the faith of the uninformed and uncommitted. Add the Gnostic gospels of Phillip, Thomas and Judas to that and it accomplishes the same goals of evolution--to destroy the faith of the people. That's when the floodgates open to every kind of thought and reasoning that's in the world for spiritually hungry and lost people searching to find something to fill their 'God void'. They love their sin and rebellion.
The Book, God's instructions to humanity for successful living, tells of a time in history when the world will be deceived by doctrines of demon's, those dark, sinister, wicked spirits whose main purpose is to steal, kill and destroy our faith and our bodies. America, it's time to wake up. Stop straddling the fence. Deal or No Deal. The Bible tells us that in the end times the wicked will become even more vile and the good will become better. I believe we are that generation that will see these things come to pass.
Will it be DEAL--that Christ was God in human flesh, died for our sins (that caused spiritual separation) rose from the dead (preview of our new bodies) and is alive today inviting all to repent, believe in Him and accept Him into their lives (spiritual rebirth).
NO DEAL--that he never was deity, only a mere human being, a good man, never rose from the dead and that the Bible is full of myth's and flaw's and can't be trusted.
