Romans 1 = ‘Woke’ Culture — Exchanged the truth of God for a lie, worshiping themselves; professing themselves to be wise, they became fools

Paul explained ‘woke’ culture two thousand years ago: Romans 1:18-32

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known of God is revealed in them, for God revealed it to them. 20 For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. 21 Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 and traded the glory of the incorruptible God for the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds, four-footed animals, and creeping things. 24 Therefore God also gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to uncleanness, that their bodies should be dishonored among themselves; 25 who exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason, God gave them up [evil spirits allowed in when they sin – ed.] to vile passions. For their women changed the natural function into that which is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural function of the woman, burned in their lust toward one another, men doing what is inappropriate with men, and receiving in themselves the due penalty of their error. 28 Even as they refused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, malice [‘desire to cause pain, injury, or distress to another’ – ed.]; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil habits, secret slanderers, 30 backbiters, hateful to God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but also approve of those who practice them.

NLV paraphrase of the last verse:

32 They know God’s justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too.

C.S. Lewis in 1942: How Satan uses fear of death to destroy liberty — “I instilled fear in them!”

Spookily, CS Lewis wrote this nearly 70 years ago but could have been written today:

′′One young devil asked the old man: “How did you manage to bring so many souls to hell?” The old devil answered: “I instilled fear in them!” Answers the youngster: “Great job! And what were they afraid of? Wars? Hunger?” Answers the man: “No, they were afraid of the disease!

For this youngster: “Does this mean they didn’t get sick? Are they not dead? There was no rescue for them?” The old man answered: “but no . . . they got sick, died, and the rescue was there.” The young devil, surprised, answered: “Then I don’t understand???”

The old man answered: “You know they believed the only thing they have to keep at any cost is their lives.

They stopped hugging, greeting each other. They’ve moved away from each other. They gave up all social contacts and everything that was human! Later they ran out of money, lost their jobs, but that was their choice because they were afraid for their lives, that’s why they quit their jobs without even having bread.

They believed blindly everything they heard and read in the papers.

They gave up their freedoms, they didn’t leave their own homes literally anywhere. They stopped visiting family and friends. The world turned into such a concentration camp, without forcing them into captivity.

They accepted everything!!! Just to live at least one more miserable day . . . And so living, they died every day!!!

And that’s how it was very easy for me to take their miserable souls to hell….. ′′

John MacArthur reads list of demands from California Govt.

The long list of demands from the Government of California is read by #JohnMacArthur during a Grace Community Church service held September 13, 2020, after a Judge ruled that Grace Church, specifically, could only have “services” outdoors (in the 100+ degree heat, with the ashes of nearby wildfires raining down, in a parking lot, that is owned by the State, a lease that the State has recently revoked). These demands are supposed to be related to #COVID19 but ultimately Christians and Constitutionalists know that #ChurchIsEssential

Quotes from Mario Murillo on TruNews: God-Haters Using Coronavirus to Shut Down Churches Forever

I transcribed some quotes:

“The leaders of this movement are Marxists…. Their interest is not in racial equality. Their interest is in destroying. That’s why revival, the move of God, the outpouring of the Spirit is the tangible, undeniable alternative. Right now at this point, churches have to be supernatural, because we’re dealing with the Devil directly.”

“We’re in a place where what most desperately needs to be said is opposed from both sides. Jesus went through that.” – Mario Murillo

“Sing louder. … Christians should be going into the streets and singing, instead of being intimidated.” – Rick Wiles

“..the greasy grace, the sloppy agape…. We literally created the dichotomy that you could receive the Lord Jesus as Savior, but not as Lord.” – Mario Murillo

31:30 “This whole thing is a test balloon.” And most CA churches are failing the test.

[Covid-19 Truth] Mario Marillo on Continued Covid Lockdowns: What About Everyone Else Who Will Die?

Few seem to be talking about the death toll that may result if the economy remains shut longer than it should.  And how many have already died? I reject the notion that wanting to reopen America puts “profits over people.” I see some on the Left putting political agenda over people.

Lives Depend on Economic Activity. When you stop that, then you kill people. …

Our definition of safety must be weighed against the risk of death from listening to leftists who have other goals.

It is far too tempting for the Left. They have demonstrated a passion for three things to happen:

• They want desperately, above all else, for Trump to lose the election.
• They want to replace Free Market Capitalism with Socialism.
• And they want to weaken the church.

If the virus becomes an open-ended political excuse—relying on models that are leftist and not scientific—then we have to do some deep soul searching. If we see our leaders are willing to allow the deaths that we know will happen from a dead economy—and closed churches—because they want to prevent the ones that might happen, then it’s no longer prudence, it’s politics.

COVID 19: A Pretext For Civil Tyranny and An Opportunity For Christian Toughness – Chuck Baldwin, Mar. 22, 2020

39:00 “Think about this: if every time somebody died from the flu was reported in the media, like they are reporting the coronavirus, the whole world would be in lockdown every flu season. … A constant barrage. … Around 50,000 die in this country every year from the flu. If they treated the flu the same way they are treating the coronavirus, the way they talk about it on the media, seriously, the entire world would be in lockdown every flu season. This is a deliberate hype of the media to instill abject fear and panic in the people.”

1:04:00 “By closing their services, churches have declared themselves to be nonessential services. … Churches have less courage and conviction about God’s work than the baby butchers at Planned Parenthood have about the Devil’s work.”
