Belief in God means belief in the Creator who created man in His own image.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:27,28
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Romans 1:20-23
Cancer in our society
Nowadays the socialists are using the environmentalist movement to get power over the populous. We see the spread of Islam in the world and the rise of Islamic terrorism. We see the decay of the nuclear family, the destruction of the marriage through a 50% divorce rate, pornography, and the normalisation of homosexuality–including gay marriage laws. God once destroyed two cities–Sodom and Gomorrah–for that perversion (Genesis 19). I could go on and on about the decay of the nations. But all this began 6000 years ago in the Garden of Eden.
The agent behind the scenes is Lucifer himself (was then and still is) who is their idol, the ultimate agent of individualism and defiance of the Creator. Look at history. Look at the change that has happened in our society. What was once considered sin is now considered an alternate lifestyle. What was once considered murder is now considered “choice.” Once life was considered sacred but now the Western societies are murdering millions of babies every year. Abortion is the number one cause of death in America today. Nearly 1,310,000 pre-born innocent human beings killed annually in America today.
And the church has fallen hook line and sinker for Satan’s lie. Genesis chapter 3
1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. Genesis 3:1-3
They had a paradise but Satan deceived them into giving it up. There he told the first lie:
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Genesis 3:4,5
And then Eve ate the fruit and gave to husband and he ate. Their eyes were opened and they not only saw what was good and evil, they also became like Satan in their evil intentions in their hearts (Jeremiah 17:9). And yes, they did die as a consequence of their sin. That is why we, Adam’s offspring, all die. “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23) and we are all (Romans 3:23) bound for hellfire without the redemption of Christ for those who repent.
The liberal church–the majority of the mainstream churches–tell us that this is all a myth. It is not real history. It is just allegory. This is the subtlety of the devil’s lies. He has convinced the so-called Christian church that His Word cannot be trusted as truth. They might say it has God’s Words in there somewhere. They say it has many errors and hence the implication is that it cannot be trusted. But Jesus Himself said:
Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4
Think about that! He said every word. All His words are important, not just some general message. Our society no longer cares about His Words. They violate all of the “10 Words” or what we know as the “10 Commandments” of God because many believe there is no God and hence no Hell. No Hell means to them no ultimate judgement, and so in the post-modern mind you can do as you like because there are no consequences.
They have changed history to a story where man evolved after 3.8 billion years from pond scum that started living by some unknown random chance processes. And since there is no reason or purpose for life they say there are no moral absolutes, so just do whatever feels right.
The so-called church has joined the world. Wishing to appear learned and scholarly the clergy have received their degrees in the secular universities and imbibed the destructive lies of Satan. “Man was not created by God,” “He evolved,” “The science can be trusted” they say. Or “Jesus was a man for social justice.” They remove the deity of God and speak only of man.
The door is open wide for the sins of pride and arrogance. Man has become a god himself who is now able to determine his own destiny. Man can determine truth himself apart from His Creator. But Satan is smarter than they.
I personally experience the result of this in the universities I have worked in and have visited. I see an overwhelming spirit of man being the creator of his own destiny. Man knows truth, they say. There is no God, certainly not the personal Creator of the Bible. To believe in a Creator God seems almost totally foreign to the modern academic. (Thankfully there are still a few who hold to biblical truth.)
As a result the “church” now teaches another gospel. It is a social gospel–it is one of inclusiveness, that all men have to do is “love”. Of course their definition of “love” is not that of Jesus Christ, who said:
If ye love me, keep my commandments. John 14:15
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. Colossians 2:8
The deception comes in many forms. We see the creep of discrimination (against Christian doctrines) slowly entering society in appeasement to the Islamic agenda. The mainstream church works against the true gospel. They side with the atheist and Islamic agendas. The progressives (who don’t like the label of ‘the Left’) inexorably have taken over the West. Starting with atheistic Karl Marx, then the true communists using the socialists as useful idiots they have persuaded the democracies founded on Judeo-Christian values to forfeit those values and adopt those that God hates. It all started in the beginning. There is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:4-11).
