Cultural Marxism and its mass media tribute band swing through the country with absolutism’s “virtuous” jamboree, flaunting Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Critical Race Theory, MeToo, and biological boys competing against girls at state track championships. Blue state aspiring dictators double down on focusing the nation’s attention on diversity, cancel culture, wokism, race equity, gender pronoun sophistry, transgenderism, sexual orientation, and ethnicity.
Here is a sampling of the utter muddle that secularism has created:
A professor at an elite medical school abjectly apologizes to his students for using the term “pregnant women,” implying that only women can get pregnant: “I don’t want you to think that I am in any way trying to imply anything, and if you can summon some generosity to forgive me, I would really appreciate it. It was certainly not my intention to offend anyone.”5
Minnesota fourth graders are told to hide from their parents “equity survey” questions on race and gender.6
Government coercion to inject Pfizer’s experimental gene therapy vaccine strongly boosts corporate profits. “Pfizer now sees $33.5 billion in 2021 vaccine sales, up from $26 billion, and says a third dose of its #COVID19 shot ‘strongly’ boosts protection against the Delta variant.”7
Capitol Police ordered to arrest staff and visitors not wearing masks following power hungry Speaker Pelosi’s House mandate.8
One’s sex should be removed as a legal designation on the public part of birth certificates, according to the American Medical Association [AMA].9
Military called out to enforce lockdown in Sydney for at least a month. No leaving the house except for government approved reasons. Australia has seen 9 COVID deaths.10
Is there a way out of this muddled mire?
We the people must come together and pray! Every church in America should have a pastor, elder, deacon, or congregant running for local office [school board, city council, county commissioner, etc.] in 2022, 2024, 2026, and thereafter.
Jesus’ ekklesia Kingdom assignment from Matthew 16:18 should be the focus of American Christendom, with the standard of measure being such issues as “Is our city becoming more like the Kingdom of Heaven?”
Any casual observer of American Christendom will easily recognize the great difference between the modern church and what Jesus said He would build. Over the last century Christian leadership collectively moved from producing and launching leaders into the public square to merely feeding flocks of voiceless followers in its increasingly isolated communities. The Church went from apostolic leadership to pastoral leadership.11
We have arrived at our kairos, the New Testament Greek word for “the appointed time in the purpose of God.” In his Gleanings in Joshua, Arthur W. Pink says this about it: “It would indeed be strange if we apprehended how that on the one hand Canaan was a free gift unto Israel, which they entered by grace alone; and on the other that they had to fight for every inch of it!”
In closing on a political note, we turn to American writer, blogger, and television commentator Benjamin Domenech [born 1982], who in a recent article titled The Permanent Pandemic Game, suggested why Nancy Pelosi is masking up again.
- “This is about politics, not saving lives. On May 13th, Joe Biden announced that if you were vaccinated, you no longer needed to wear a mask … Masking is theater.
- “Democrats are now counting on being the party of the permanent pandemic as their path to victory. Democrats see the tidal wave coming toward them in the upcoming midterms and they are fearful and desperate. They want to maintain the fire hose of money from Washington, the general feeling of emergency status, their defense of the lazy feckless and evil teachers’ unions, and of course the emergency pandemic rules related to mail-in ballots and voting. It is their only hope to prevent what everyone sees coming.
“There is only one way to stop this predicament, to wreck the mess of mandates and requirements and ‘let’s try all the things that made no difference’ approaches, and ensure your children are not ‘distance learning’ for another year: the ballot box.”
As Christian Americans we must make a choice: we either engage in the public square by going to the ballot box or we head towards places prepared for those unwilling to fight, such as concentration camps, the gulag and the grave.
Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.
