In America, our culture is still predominately godly. Our godly culture is being eroded by heathen oppression. That is nothing new. The Bible is filled with examples.
Heathens hate Christians. They would like to destroy Christianity. In America, it’s not legal for them to kill us. So instead, they attempt to rule over us by infecting our culture with their depravity until there is no right and wrong. Their goal is to create so much resultant chaos that they will have to take over our government to save us from ourselves.
American Greatness puts that, The Demon in Democracy
“In 2016, Encounter published Legutko’s latest book, The Demon in Democracy: Totalitarian Temptations in Free Societies. In it, Legutko argues that liberal democracy “tends to develop the qualities that were characteristic of Communism: pervasive politicization, ideological zeal, aggressive social engineering, vulgarity, a belief in inevitability of progress, destruction of family, the omnipresent rule of ideological correctness, and the severe restriction of intellectual inquiry.”
The devil through fear of death keeps heathens in bondage (Hebrews 2:15). What heathens will not admit is that they cannot kill our soul. They may oppress us to death, but never win over our God of the Bible. What they fear and do not want to face is eternal death and hell.
Jesus told His disciples and us “never be afraid of them.”
“So never be afraid of them, because there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing secret that will not be made known.What I tell you in darkness you must speak in the daylight, and what is whispered in your ear you must shout from the housetops.Stop being afraid of those who kill the body but can’t kill the soul. Instead, be afraid of the one who can destroy both body and soul in hell. Matthew 10:26-28 ISV Cf: Afraid Is 8:12-13; 51:12-13; Jr 1:8; 1Pt 3:14 Fear God Mt 5:22; Lk 12:5; Heb 10:31; Jms 4:12
In America, the chaos caused by those running on deeds of the flesh make it seem we are a heathen country. Yet, our Constitution still stands. Christians are still the majority. It is still not politically expedient for those elected to United States national office in the house of representatives and the senate to identify as non-Christian or heathen. Their identity as Christian is substantially greater than that of their voters. Many are probably Christian in Name Only.
In the current 116th congress House of Representatives 88% identify as Christian. Pew Research Religious affiliation in the United States Senate during the 116th Congress—86 Christians—14 non-christian. Wikipedia
Voter Statistics—Those who believe in God as described in the Bible by political party.
Republicans white—72% non-white—60%
Democrats white—32% non-white—61%
Now we are getting to why we must stand up and stand for God. Only 28% of Republicans are heathen, 68% of Democrats are heathen. Since party affiliation is about evenly split 50 50. That 68% share of Democrats is cut in half to 34% of the total. Yet their depraved behavior disproportionately contaminates our culture and they exert control over many Christians. Whatever became of sin? Where are the moral restrainers?
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Messiah Yeshua, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah Yeshua made me free from the law of sin and of death. For what the law couldn’t do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh; that the ordinance of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace; because the mind of the flesh is hostile toward God; for it is not subject to God’s Torah, neither indeed can it be. Those who are in the flesh can’t please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn’t have the Spirit of Messiah, he is not his. If Messiah is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him who raised up Yeshua from the dead dwells in you, he who raised up Messiah Yeshua from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
So then, brothers (and sisters), we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if you live after the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God. For you didn’t receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God; and if children, then heirs: heirs of God and joint heirs with Messiah, if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him. Romans 8:1-17 WMB
