I’ve never been big on conspiracy theories though the blocking of the JFK assassination papers from the public makes me wonder what’s being hidden. Fortunately, in the the next life, everything will be revealed (Luke 12:3). I’m sure we’ll be shocked about “what really took place” in history.
I do believe in one conspiracy the Bible describes and is caricatured in C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters and Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness:
The devil and his demons conspiring to destroy human beings.
During the past one hundred years, if I were the devil, what would I do?
If you’re like me, you might find it difficult at times to stay positive and balanced while gazing at the precipitous decline of Western and American culture around you.
Watching the news is depressing. Evil forces have been unleashed in our world (through human choices) to destroy people and nations from within. It wouldn’t take much for nuclear bombs and cyber attacks to strike from outside.
How do we stay faith full while watching the deterioration around us?
Here’s a helpful perspective on Jesus and the Power Domains.
The word “progressive” now used in American politics sounds positive–like taking wonderful steps towards human virtue and prosperity.
But 21st century progressive politics has divided the USA, destroyed the American family, defunded the police, created an open border, brought sexual and gender confusion, accelerated violence in the cities, and created generational despair.
These consequences, and many others, are anything but progressive–they’re regressive in every way.
We’re only progressing towards communism.
