The Democrat Party – A Demonic Cult of Death

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY – A DEMONIC CULT OF DEATH
An Open Letter to Democrats and the Fake News Liberal Media on why they are a Cult of Death, a Tool of the Devil and of Antichrist, as well as a Clear and Present Danger to the Nation.
This is an updated and expanded letter that I originally wrote and sent out to hundreds of political organizations and institutions during the 2016 Election. I have updated it in response to President Biden’s recent divisive and demonic speech and his attack upon Christian virtues and Republican values. It is also in the form of a polemical sermon lecture in rebuke of the demonic agenda of the Democrat party and a warning to the churches and the nation.
*In John 10:10-11 Jesus says, “The Devil is as a thief who does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. “
Here in John 10 Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, the Savior of the world and the Ruler over the Kings of the earth solemnly states that the work of the Devil is “to steal, to kill, and to destroy.” This is the ultimate design and stratagem of the Devil’s work in the world. The Devil does this in many ways and through a variety of different means by promoting and influencing people to sin, idolatry, crime, false religion, deviant and destructive political ideologies, as well as public policies in government that lead people away from the truth of the Gospel to wickedness that leads to both death and damnation. It is the Devil’s work therefore to promote a culture of death in nations and societies through a variety of different institutions and organizations. This is manifested in American culture and society in many different ways, but nowhere is it more obvious and more prevalent than in the Democrat party and their demonic agenda.
To be sure, the wickedness and moral depravity of the Democrat party extends much further than here stated. In fact, the Democrat party as an institution promotes the willful breaking and subversion of all Ten Commandments of the Moral Law: including, 1. Atheism, heresy and false religion as well as demonic and pagan ideologies. 2. The most abominable forms of idolatry and witchcraft. 3. All forms of blasphemy and profanity and the taking of God’s name in vain. 4. The desecration of the Lord’s Day. 5. The subversion of all lawful authority including government authority, as well as parental authority and their subversion of the family. 6. The perverse and detestable taking of life by their pro-death policies (as is exposed in this paper). 7. Adultery and every form of sexual immorality (including the abominable evils of the LGBTQ movement), as well as human trafficking and sex slavery. 8. Every form of thievery, graft, fraud, corruption, extortion, and injustice. 9. Every form of evil contrary to divine truth including lies, propaganda, deceit, heresy, false doctrine, perjury, the suborning of false witnesses, slander, reviling, and mockery. 10. Greed, covetousness, envy, and a hundred different forms of discontent and malice toward one’s neighbor.
And while not every Democrat politician, pundit, or person is guilty of all of these sins and crimes, the vast majority of them consent to them and promote them in their politicians and public policies. The Democrat party is a veritable tool of the Devil and of Antichrist.
And so indeed, the Democrat party is an American cult of death, and is a veritable curse on American society being a work and and tool of the Devil. The Democrat party is godless and immoral in every aspect of the term (religiously, spiritually, politically, economically and culturally), and have been for over the last 50-60 years. Every one of their policies are a form of cultism and demonism that promotes a culture of corruption, moral depravity and death just as the Lord Jesus describes the work of the Devil which is “to steal, to kill, and destroy.” Here are just a few of the incontrovertible facts easily proven by an analysis of modern history, crime and death statistics, as well as common sense:
1. Abortion: Over 50 million unborn children have been slaughtered in abortion mills as a direct result of the Democrat party and the ruling of Roe v. Wade in 1973. Hundreds of thousands of unborn children are moreover still being slaughtered every year because of their atheist and feminist agenda, and the influence of their death cult on public policy and American sentiment. Abortion is in fact the leading cause of death in America as approximately 3000 unborn children are murdered every day in the nation. President Trump and pro-life conservatives are trying to put this to an end. The recent Supreme court decision overturning Roe. v. Wade is a step in the right direction for the nation, but it by no means ends the demonic agenda of the Democrat party and their perverted depravity to murder unborn children. The Supreme court decision will inevitably produce greater division in the nation along with hysteria, looting, and all kinds of social unrest and political violence by the left; and it will likely not do much to reduce the number of abortions throughout the nation. Liberal states and governors will now support and finance the manifold evils of abortion even more, even welcoming those out of state. But the Supreme Court decision is right and just. For a full evaluation of the evil of abortion from Scripture and history, you can refer to my recent sermons on “The Evil and Abomination of Abortion, and the Politics of Modern Witchcraft” which are also posted on my Facebook page on May 10th, 2022. Contrary to the ungodly liberal propaganda of politicians and pundits, abortion is not merely evil because it is the murder of the unborn; it is also evil because it is destructive to the health of women, as well as the family and society. Abortion leads to many serious, debilitating and chronic health problems in women who have abortions including guilt, anxiety, drug abuse, sinful rage, sexual immorality, moral degradation, broken relationships, emotional and spiritual bondage, cancer, heart disease, untimely deaths, the astronomical rise of suicide among women, and without repentance and faith in Jesus Christ it leads to eternal damnation in hell. Abortion contributes to the denigration of women, the ruin of marriage and the family, the spread of sexual immorality and feminist idolatry, the breakdown of the nation, society, the political economy, and also the defilement of the church. Abortion is a great evil in every way and abortion policy is nothing less than modern witchcraft!
2. Inner-city murders: Thousands of Black Americans and Hispanic folk are murdered every year because of the perverse and racist policies of Democrat city politicians. In fact, since the 1960’s over 700,000 people (largely minorities) have been murdered by gun violence that is a direct result of Democrat policies and their death cult which are designed to undermine law and order as well as public respect for law enforcement officers. The crime and chaos in many inner-cities that have occurred since the death of George Floyd and that have cost hundreds of lives and billions of dollars have actually been promoted and financed by donors and leaders of the Democrat party. Democrats do not care at all for minorities or their communities other than using and abusing them for their evil and demonic purposes. It is an unknown fact that after the Civil War, minority families because of the influence of the Gospel and sound Biblical doctrine were very stable and had a a two parent household. But after the pagan revolution of the 1960’s and the “civil rights movement”, the Democrat party began a systematic program of promoting the destruction of the black family and minority households through the Great Society, the welfare program, and the Marxist ideology of victimhood. It was pagan ideology and culture or idolatry that has led to the breakdown of minority families and the inner-city. The vast increase of inner-city murders, drug crimes, and other evils are the direct result of Democrat policies and their atheistic cult of death. President Trump is trying to put an end to inner-city violence with strict enforcement of law and order as well as urban revitalization through opportunity zones and the funding of black colleges and private schools. The movement of Black Lives Matters, Antifa, and other leftist organizations of the Democrat party and their asinine calls to defund the police will only increase the culture of death and destruction in American cities and the black community.
3. Drug crime and overdoses: Hundreds of thousands of people have died of drug overdose (that we know as the Opiod crisis) over the last 12 years as a direct result of the lawless drug trade affiliated with illegal immigration, the secularism promoted in public schools (influenced by the godless Democrat party), as well as the destructive pharmaceutical policies of former President Obama. Over 60,000 people have died every year since the crisis began. Now in 2022 under the Biden administration, the number of deaths as a result of drug crimes and overdoses has risen to over 100,000 annually. The Democrat party is a death cult because it is also drug cult and a crime syndicate. To put these tragic numbers into perspective, since the passing of Obama’s godless and libertine policy, more Americans die every year from drug overdose than American soldiers died during the entire Vietnam war era. The death toll in America from drug overdoses since Obama is now well over 1 Million! This is not accidental, but in fact a policy of evil designed by sinister and demonic people in power to bring death and ruin to the nations and families in order to advance a policy of statism and government tyranny. The Democrat party produces evil in culture and society and pretends to want to fix it, only to launder money to their political pacts and organizations. The deceit and wickedness of these people knows no bounds. They are predatory and do not care at all for the minority families that they hurt and destroy. President Trump is trying to put an end to these by closing the border, fighting the drug trade and illegal immigration, promoting private religious education and Christian schooling, as well as reforming health care institutions and national pharmaceutical policies.
4. Foreign Policy and Islamic Terrorism under the Obama-Biden administrations: It is a fact of recent history that over 1.5 million people died in the Middle East during the Obama administration as a direct result of Obama’s incompetent leadership and the Democrat party’s sympathetic policies toward radical Islam. It is a strange but incontrovertible fact that the Democrat party promotes the manifold evils of radical Islam by their cowardice and incompetence as well as their anti-America, anti-military state policy. During the Obama administration, Islamic terrorism was allowed to develop, metastasize, and roam free throughout the Middle east as well as in Europe and parts of the US where terror cells have been being developed. President Trump has for the most part ended most of the evils of radical Islamic terrorism in the nation as well as the Middle East that was a daily threat and horror under Obama. President Trump destroyed ISIS in the first 2 years of his administration and has strengthened Home Land Security to fight and root out the danger of Islamic terrorism in the nation.
But now under the Biden administration, Islamic terrorism is again on the rise, terror cells are being formed in Europe and the US (as a result of Biden’s ungodly and destructive immigration policy), and of course the Taliban have taken over Afghanistan inheriting billions of dollars worth of US military gear and weaponry on account of Biden’s incompetent withdrawal. How many innocent Afghani’s have been murdered by Islamic terrorists and the Taliban since the withdrawal? Tens of thousands! In every aspect of foreign policy, the Democrat party is a cult of death and destruction.
This is further evidenced by the way Democrat administrations have over the last 30 years handled Russia-Ukraine diplomacy. For a full explanation of the manifold evils and abominations of the US government’s policy toward Russia and Ukraine, you can read my several Facebook posts as recent as May 3rd 2023. The truth of the matter is, the present war raging between Russia and Ukraine is entirely the fault of the Obama-Biden administration, the Maidan revolution of 2014 which they fostered by means of the CIA, and their deceitful and wicked policies in Ukraine that have included the laundering of money, the creation and financing of over 50 dangerous bio-labs, the stealing of Ukrainian gold and energy resources, the systematic persecution and murder of Russian citizens in eastern Ukraine, as well as the promotion of a godless liberal anti-Christian fascist government. Zelensky the godless liberal Jewish actor turned president of Ukraine is merely a puppet of the US government’s policy to bring division between Russia and Ukraine as well as death and destruction to the region. The issues between Russia and Ukraine could have been easily settled by compromise and treaty. The real criminal actor involved in this war is the Biden administration! They are a tool of the Devil and of antichrist, and once again prove they are a cult of death not at all interested in peace or life. Over 300,000 Ukrainian soldiers have already died in the war (as well as 40-50 thousand Russians), over 40,000 Ukrainian citizens, and the Biden administration doesn’t give a damn at all for these people. Over 10,000 children have been moreover sold into slavery through the European black market. The Biden administration is wicked and ungodly to the core, as they want war and death and carnage in the vain attempt to remove Putin from office and to undermine the Russian economy and people! The Democrat leadership are nothing less than instruments of the Devil as they go about seeking who they may steal from as well as kill and destroy!
5. Suicide: The suicide rate in America since the 1960’s (with the cultural revolution and the spread of secularism) has greatly increased to astronomical proportions. Although not all suicides in America are liberal Democrats or directly influenced by their culture of death, the increase of the suicide rate in American society is certainly a direct result of the Democrat party and the influence of its atheistic ideology, its promotion of a godless and hedonistic lifestyle (LGBT), the vast corruption of the public school system, the rise of the drug culture in the nation, the influence of Hollywood paganism, as well as their feminist ideology that leads to abortion and deep guilt and suicidal tendencies in women. The suicide rate has over the last 30 years increased from less than 25,000 a year to somewhere between 80-100,000 a year, with most of the increase coming as a result of suicide among women on account of abortions, the resultant guilt, and feminist despair. In fact, since 1960, over 2.5 million Americans have taken their life by suicide. The idolatry and paganism of the Democrat party is clearly a cult of death on account of its influence on suicide in America. The same massive increase in the number of suicides can also be seen in European countries as well where abortion and feminist idolatry have become widespread. Why is this? Without God, there is no reason to live. The stress of life and the guilt that comes with sin and idolatry lead people to end their lives in horrific ways. This is also a work of the Devil who goes about seeking to steal, to kill, and destroy. While some suicides are tragic and disheartening, most of them are (like the suicide of Judas) clear evidences of God’s wrath and vengeance upon a person as a result of their depravity and idolatry. On the other hand, President Trump, along with Christians and those with a Christian world and life view, promote a culture of life and redemption, forgiveness and purpose in the nation and the lives of people. The massive suicide rate in the nation since the 1960’s therefore clearly indicates that the Democrat party and their godless agenda is a cult of death as well as a tool of the Devil.
6. Violent Crime: It is also an established historical fact of American history that since the 1960’s (and the cultural revolution), over 75% of all crime and murder in the US has been perpetrated by those who identify as Democrats. Yes. In fact, the vast majority of murderers, rapists, violent criminals, drug dealers, sodomites, pedophiles, and other moral deviants in the US (black, white, or Hispanic) identify as Democrats, whether they vote or not. It is no surprise that the big three moral deviants of celebrity status (Epstein, Weinstein and Cosby) as well as the vast majority of other godless celebrity rapists and pedophiles are Democrats, and even Democrat donors. It is no surprise that the cities with the most violence, death, rape, murder, and criminal conduct are governed by Democrats and the least religious and conservative in their political and doctrinal views. And while all men and women are sinners; the worst of all sinners in the nation are certainly Democrats – as this list categorically proves! It is the Democrat party that approves of, tolerates, and even promotes a society of moral depravity, sexual perversion, unrestrained sin and idolatry, political corruption, social evils, and family dysfunction. The moral depravity of the Democrat party is the leading instigator and promoter of violent crime in America; for the Democrat party is a cult of death and moral depravity. In Romans 6:23 the apostle Paul says, ‘The wages of sin is death.”
7. Homosexual Perversion: The Democrat party is moreover the political party of LGBTQ and all the manifold evils of homosexual perversion which destroys lives and families, which is the festering ground for the the deadly AIDS virus as well as a thousand other miseries leading to death. Once again, it is the Democrat party that approves of, tolerates, and even promotes a society of moral depravity, sexual perversion, unrestrained sin and idolatry, political corruption, social evils, and family dysfunction. And this eventually brings God’s wrath and judgment in the form of pestilence and death. With respect to homosexual perversion, God’s wrath comes in the form of death by means of the AIDS virus! Over 1 million people die every year from the AIDS virus, a plague of God’s wrath upon the wickedness of man’s sin and idolatry. In fact, over the last 40 years, over 50 million people (YES- 50 MILLION!) have been destroyed by God’s wrath from the AIDS virus, most of them on account of the perversion of their homosexual lifestyle. The Democrat party, on account of its atheistic and anti-Christian ideology does nothing to help the gay community to be delivered from their moral perversion and self-destructive lifestyles. In fact, they promote it as a form of freedom. How ironic, and how demonic! Homosexuals, transvestites, pedophiles, and moral deviants live lives 10-15 years shorter than the average! The wages of sin is death! They promote their ungodly lifestyle that leads to death and damnation as well as the loss of any possible posterity from a family. In Romans 1 Paul therefore in his condemnation of pagan society says that homosexuality is the very pinnacle of a reprobate mind and society, and that the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against such evil and wickedness and upon those who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.
8. Global Warming Paganism: The Democrat party is moreover the party that is given over to the idolatry of naturalism that has led to Global Warming paganism and an environmental policy that is destructive to human life. Instead of properly managing the world’s resources (oil, shale, water, timber, natural gas, coal, rare earth elements) and using them to help improve science, technology, and society as well as impoverished nations and communities, the Democrat party abuses them to the hurt and destruction of billions of people around the world. Natural disasters and calamities are thereby aggravated by the gross incompetence that comes from such ideological pagans who don’t know how to prevent forest fires or alleviate the damage that comes from hurricanes, plagues, diseases or other forms of God’s judgment visited upon the world because of man’s sin and idolatry. Being ignorant of God’s judgment and the nature of His providence in these events (because of their Atheism), Democrats don’t know how to prepare for them or to alleviate the pain that comes by them. And so whether it is the death and destruction caused by CA forest fires, the unmitigated disaster of Covid-19 (created by the Chinese government with the help of the Obama administration and that wicked weasel Fauci), coastal hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, plagues, pestilences, diseases, or famines Democrat politicians only aggravate the situation caused by these catastrophes. And thousands of people end up suffering great pain and hardship and even dying (as in the millions with Covid) on account of the unbelievable wickedness, incompetence, stupidity and malevolence of Democrat leaders. They are truly a cult of death and destruction that is a clear and present danger to the world.
9. Covid-19: Covid-19 was a criminal conspiracy, of demonic proportions that was long in planning, and concocted by a number of western globalist elites from several different but overlapping groups directly related to the Democrat party; including Klaus Schwab and the WHO, the Bill Gates Foundation, the Obama-Biden administrations, the Deep State bureaucracy, the CDC, the DOD, and big pharma including Pfizer. In other words, Covid-19 was not an accident, but a pre-meditated, racketeering, politically motivated genocidal campaign of mass murder developed over a 20-year period designed to increase the commercial profit and political power of the godless liberal globalist elites. What was Covid-19 designed to do? Several things:
1. Covid-19 was designed to unleash a deadly pandemic upon the world killing millions of people.
2. Covid-19 was designed to advance the protocol of a destructive form of gene therapy masquerading as a universal vaccine.
3. Covid-19 was designed to undermine the presidency of President Trump and to remove him from office in 2020.
4. Covid-19 was designed to establish a program to reduce world population over the next 50 years, beginning with China.
5. Covid-19 was designed to increase the massive personal and corporate profits of the conspirators and their political power.
6. Covid-19 was designed to initiate conflict and an eventual full out war between the US and China by releasing the virus from the Wuhan lab.
7. Covid-19 was designed to strengthen the globalist elites of the deep state and to further their diabolical and tyrannical agenda.
During the pandemic, most of the Democrat party and the godless liberal fake news media demonized President Trump’s policy of closing the nation down to Chinese and European travel which easily saved hundreds of thousands of lives. If Obama or Biden, or any Democrat, were president, the death toll from Covid-19 would easily be over 2 million on account of their ungodliness, their stupidity, their incompetence, and their political correctness. It would have been a National Calamity! Any person with common-sense knows this to be true. President Trump shut down travel from China and Europe before the pandemic hit the nation, while all the Democrats accused him of being racist and xenophobic. It has been moreover proven that over 70% of Covid-19 deaths in America have taken place in Democrat controlled cities and states as a result of their fascist policies. This can be especially seen in the incompetent and depraved response of Gov. Cuomo in NY who sent Covid patients back to nursing homes to infect and subsequently kill thousands of elderly folk. He should be impeached, if not also imprisoned, for such a cruel and asinine decision to send Covid patients back to nursing homes. The Democrat party used every form of deceit and propaganda in relation to the Covid pandemic as a political means to protect the conspiracy of the globalist elites and to remove President Trump from office in 2020 so that Covid-19 could not be investigated. This is not only barbaric, but entirely demonic.
10. Anti-Christ: The Democrat party moreover opposes the Gospel of Jesus Christ (the only way to life and salvation) in every aspect on account of its political ideology, its public policies, its open hostility to Biblical truth, as well as its persecution of the Church and kingdom of God. This is the greatest evil of the Democrat party and the greatest evidence that it is a work of the Devil, and therefore a demonic death cult. The Democrat party opposes the truth of God. It opposes both the Law of God revealed in the Ten Commandments and also the Gospel of Jesus Christ which is the only way to life and salvation. It seeks moreover to undermine and to suppress by its policies the influence of Christian churches as well as ministers and Christians alike who believe sound Biblical doctrine and who promote truth and godliness in the nation. The Democrat party suppresses the truth of God in unrighteousness by promoting sin, idolatry, lies, propaganda, false religion, paganism, and the most depraved and ungodly forms of behavior; while at the same time suppressing the rights and values of Christians. While Islamic terrorism is a danger to the safety and security of the nation as well as world peace, it should not be too difficult to see that the Democrat party is presently far more dangerous, far more sinister, far more wicked and depraved, and by far a more clear and present danger to the American Republic as well as world peace.
The Democrat party promotes a culture of sin, crime, depravity, deceit, division, corruption, and death! These are all incontrovertible facts that can be readily proven by statistical data as well as borne out by common sense and observation. The Democrat party is the atheist party, the reprobate party, the godless party, the libertine party, the party of paganism, suicide, immorality, LGBT rights, suicide, inner-city crime, racism, and every other form of moral depravity that is contrary to God’s Law and commandments, to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to all natural affection. They are the party of hate and evil, racism and socialism, idolatry and immorality. The Democrat party is a death cult because it is entirely demonic in its religious views, its political ideology, and its public policy. They promote sin, crime, chaos, division, racism, anarchy, and every form of moral depravity known to man under the guise of civil liberty. The Democrat party is in fact the most aggressive force of evil and depravity in the nation; and it needs to be stopped – either by solemn rebuke, by repentance, revival and reformation, by law and punishment, by vote and elections, or if necessary by the force of arms and civil war. The death cult of the Democrat party needs to be vigorously opposed for the safety and security of the nation, for the lives of countless people, for peace and order in the world, and for the advance of the Gospel and kingdom of Christ.
The manifold evils of the Democrat party have been tolerated in the past 50 years by most conservatives and Christians in the nation because for the most part, these Democrat reprobates just hurt and destroy themselves by their self-destructive behavior: abortion, murder, crime, suicide, and moral depravity. If they want to hurt themselves or kill themselves, go ahead. That is their right. It would be better for the nation and the world if all the Democrat leadership aborted their children and committed suicide. The atheism and secularism of their political ideology is a form of spiritual suicide anyway. The world would be a far better place without them. And so as long as these godless Democrats want to kill themselves, abort their own children, burn up their cities, overdose on drugs, murder one another over turf wars, commit suicide, destroy their families by homosexual perversion, or commit other evils upon themselves, go ahead! That’s right! Go right ahead. Destroy yourself and your own wicked life.
BUT DON’T LIE AGAINST THE TRUTH! DON’T TURN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT INTO A FASCIST AND TYRANNICAL STATE DOMINATED BY FRAUD AND POLITICAL CORRUPTION. DON’T DESTROY THE LIVES OR THE LIBERTIES OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BY YOUR ATHEISTIC AND PAGAN IDEOLOGY! AND DO NOT THINK FOR A SECOND TO UNDERMINE THE PEACE AND SECURITY OF THE NATION (ORIGINALLY ESTABLISHED BY BIBLICAL TRUTH AND THE U.S. CONSTITUTION) BY YOUR GODLESS AND DEMONIC AGENDA! OR THERE WILL BE WAR! YES, THERE WILL BE WAR!
Considering these incontrovertible truths about the clear and present danger of the Democrat party and their demonic agenda as a cult of death, it is essential to oppose them: by the Word of God, by sound Christian doctrine, by well-grounded historical facts and argumentation, by a virtuous and constructive public policy, and by acts of Christian love.
But when these same godless liberal Democrats lie against the truth, and promote policies and propaganda that are at the same time destructive to the church, to schools, to institutions, to businesses, and to communities and the entire culture and society; and are therefore destructive to conservative and Christian families as well as to the nation as a whole….well then it is time to fight back and oppose them as vigorous as possible, and yes if necessary by war.
*Isaiah 1:10 says, “Hear the word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom; Give ear to the law of our God, You people of Gomorrah…”
*Isaiah 5:18-21 “Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as if with a cart rope; that say, “Let Him make speed and hasten His work, that we may see it; and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come, that we may know it. Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”
*In Psalm 2:10-12 David says, “Now therefore, be wise, O kings; be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.”
*In Psalm 7:14-16 David says, “Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood. He made a pit and dug it out, and has fallen into the ditch which he made. His trouble shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.”
*Proverbs 6:16-19 “These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.”
*Acts 12:20-24 “Now Herod had been very angry with the people of Tyre and Sidon; but they came to him with one accord, and having made Blastus the king’s personal aide their friend, they asked for peace, because their country was supplied with food by the king’s country. So on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his throne and gave an oration to them. And the people kept shouting, “The voice of a god and not of a man!” Then immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died. But the word of God grew and multiplied.”
*Rom.1:18 Paul says, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”
*In Eph.5:11 Paul says, “Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”
*In 2 Tim.4:1-5 the apostle Paul speaking to Timothy about the faithful preaching of the Word exhorts him and all ministers, “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own sinful desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves false teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”
*In Mt.15:14 Jesus said, “The blind will lead the blind, and they will both fall into the ditch.”
*Rev.21:8 says, “But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
*Athanasius said, “Apart from Christ and the truth of the Christian religion, there is nothing but misery and death in the world promoted by the lies of heretics and heathen philosophers.”
*John Calvin said, “Idolatry and false religion are the source of all the manifold and miserable evils in the world today.”
*John Chrysostom said, “Preaching against the works of the Devil in every realm of church and empire is a necessary qualification for a faithful minister of Christ.”
*Augustine Marloratus said, “The works of the devil and of antichrist in government and society are to be fiercely denounced, or the works of the devil and of antichrist in government and society will be flatteringly promoted.”
*Henry Bullinger wrote, “It is the solemn duty of ministers not only to preach Christ and His word to the common people; but also to princes, judges, and civil magistrates as well, in order that they may know their proper civil duty before God.”
*John Calvin, “Civil magistrates ought not to count it any dishonor to prostrate themselves as suppliants before Christ, the king of kings; nor ought they to be displeased when they are judged or admonished by the church. For inasmuch as they hear almost nothing but mere flatteries in their courts, it is all the more necessary for them to be instructed and rebuked by the Lord through the mouth of faithful ministers.”
*Matthew Henry said, “Preaching Christ and His word means preaching His sovereignty over all things, and doing all that we can to bring all things captive to the obedience of His Word…It is therefore the solemn duty of ministers to rebuke evil; as it is the duty of magistrates to punish evil; and the duty of all men to oppose evil.”
*John Knox said, “There cannot be true liberty in a nation when a people are willing to accommodate to idolatry and tyranny. If Christ is not exalted and obeyed as King, the wicked will come to power and will soon bring with them all the works of the Devil and of antichrist.”
*Oliver Cromwell said, “If the wicked are not vigorously opposed by the truth of God, they will only get worse and do more evil until they can only be opposed by the violence of war.”
*Noah Webster said, “One of the greatest evils in the world today is the cowardice of men who willfully blind themselves to corruption in the world, and thereby refuse to rebuke either the corrupt men or the corruption itself…God deliver us from such a state of cowardice and corruption.”
*Alexander Hodge wrote, “It is our duty, as far as lies in our power, immediately to organize human society and all its institutions and organs upon a distinctively Christian basis. Indifference or impartiality here between the law of the kingdom and the law of the world, or of its prince, the devil, is utter treason to the King of Righteousness. The Bible, the great statute‑book of the kingdom, explicitly lays down principles which, when candidly applied, will regulate the action of every human being in all relations. There can be no compromise. The King said, with regard to all descriptions of moral agents in all spheres of activity, “He that is not with me is against me.” If the national life in general is organized upon non‑Christian principles, the churches which are embraced within the universal assimilating power of that nation will not long be able to preserve their integrity.”
To be sure, the only way to build a culture and society devoted to life is through the faithful preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, sound Christian doctrine, and Biblical reformation in the church, the family, and civil government.

*Once again in John 10:10-11 Jesus says, “The Devil is as a thief who does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. “
