They love to portray Christianity as backward, puritanical, oppressive and unworthy of respect. Given the intense animosity leveled at the church one would think Christianity to be a dark and divisive cult. But in truth, the impact that Christianity has had on the world is seen in the development of western culture, a culture unparalleled in history.
Yes, there were abuses in the West. Yes, horrible things were done in the name of the church but there are no perfect cultures because they are comprised of imperfect people. However, the enduring good that came from western culture far outweighs the bad.
Christianity pioneered hospitals, orphanages, science, and charitable organizations that provide relief efforts across the globe. Rescue missions dot the landscape designed to help people find hope in impossible situations. They bring medical help, food, clean water and relief to millions regardless of the victim’s religious, ethnic, or political background.
And yet, we are still treated with open contempt by the left unless, of course, they need our vote which means we must endure grotesque pandering. Let’s face it, if they lived up to the religious beliefs they claim to have during their campaigns they’d upset the general philosophy of the Democratic Party which says that anything that will add more votes must not just be tolerated, but enthusiastically sanctioned.
Headlines are filled with left-wing policies aimed at not only destroying families, but our culture and our Christian beliefs – promotion of abortions as a form of birth control, teaching perverted sex acts to children as young as five, assisted-suicide, promoting Islam in the public schools while forbidding the mention of God, social justice, redistribution of wealth, etc. And even worse, they have invaded our churches to subvert Christianity from within through the use of various theologies that teach everything Socialist and nothing Christian.
Their attempts to subvert Christianity from within, through the use of left-wing theologies that teach everything Socialist and nothing Christian, is working as we see denomination after denomination spout support for abortion, same-sex marriage, openly gay ministers, deacons and church elders, big government, redistribution, open borders, etc. And while that is bad, what is worse is that those who profess to be Christian are more than willing to swallow that load of garbage, to pretend they can pick and choose what they want to believe in and what they can disregard based on political correctness or whatever flavor of the day the left is pushing.
If the left have their way everyone will live in poverty, fear to speak out, and suffer immeasurably under a centralized order. Leftists hate Christianity because it is the antithesis of everything they believe. The spiritually empty mantra of the left promises death and destruction.
Christianity is not a call to street activism or Socialism (social justice). Coercing or manipulating the faith is egregious to Biblical doctrine.
God’s Word tells us in 1 Peter 4:17 that judgment begins with the pulpit. “….and if it first begins with us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” That is answered in Revelation 20: 11-15 which tells us that everyone will face God individually, at the Great White Throne of Judgment, to take responsibility for their own sins, and the wages of those sins is death [of the soul], Romans 6:23.
