The anger about the Indiana law protecting expression of Religion is truly difficult to believe.
But, why is Atheism defeating Christianity?
First, they control the messaging; second, they use hatred and aggression to quiet their opposition; and lastly Christians are letting them win.
I will use a seldom used rhetorical tool, I will begin at the end and work back to the first.
Christianity in America is weak. We have allowed the culture to define US. Instead of letting God lead US and define US, we allow those who hate US to define US. That has led us to become weak and fear telling people about whom Jesus really is.
And in a twist, God no longer empowers US, because of our sin.
Hate? Hatred of different people is the root of discrimination. To hear the radical Atheists, you would think Christianity is new in America. You would think non of the Americans in 1770 to 1800 were Christian. You would think every Colonist was an Atheist, or a Muslim. That power comes from the hateful rhetoric they use against US. They call normal, hateful. They call US hateful.
Why? Because they can control US and intimidate US. Just look at the businesses sued and fined for being Christian, and usually very weak Christians. Look at the businesses and governments shut down or forced to change their Religious views – definitely against the First Amendment.
And then there is the control of the message. For decades, our media has been evolving. They have evolved from reporting the news to evangelizing Atheism. Slowly our Media, our Government, especially our schools, and our Hollywood have moved from teaching US historical America to teaching US what they want US to believe.
Ironically, a couple of immigrants told me something this week.
We love America, because, here everyone becomes American; even if they are from completely different backgrounds; they leave ethnic differences behind.
Ironically, one of my immigrant friends is probably Muslim. We have not had a need for that conversation.
Ironic. While our Elite beat US over the head and tell US we must throw our Religion and our Religious views away, immigrants still see US as a powerful and godly country. A powerful culture specifically because of our Faith.
Yes, I have asked those questions. Have you, lately?
