Rebellion Against God Is Cosmic Suicide


“And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.” -Acts 9:5

Rebellion against God is spiritual treason. It’s waving our fist at the approaching hurricane.

We must get over ourselves. Our self adoring platforms must give way to faithful pulpits.

Resistance is futile. Our options are submission or a miserable and perpetual annihilation. The righteous judgements of God are dismissed at our own peril.

“Sin is cosmic treason. Sin is treason against a perfectly pure Sovereign. It is an act of supreme ingratitude toward the One to whom we owe everything, to the One who has given us life itself….We are saying, ‘God, Your law is not good. My judgement is better than Yours. Your authority does not apply to me. I am above and beyond Your jurisdiction. I have the right to do what I want to do, not what You command me to do.’”
– R.C. Sproul, The Holiness of God

We Christians need to double down.

We’ve been brought to our knees. Some days we are mere beggars crawling to the finish line. Yet, we have a duty to check our sugarcoating at the door. All paradoxes of the faith considered, we must go down loving and fighting.

The prize is at hand. We need to keep our eyes fixed on the King throughout all of our affairs. Our faithful witness is our most prized possession for it’s merely a reflection of the Light that ultimately heals and consumes us a little more each day.

The hardened hater doesn’t resent our faith due to a lack of intellectual veracity. He hates our faith because he wants to. That is the part of each one of us that needs to be crushed if we are ever to make it out of this place alive.

“Atheism is not the result of objective assessment of evidence, but of stubborn disobedience; it does not arise from the careful application of reason but from willful rebellion. Atheism is the suppression of truth by wickedness, the cognitive consequence of immorality….In short, it is sin that is the mother or unbelief.” – James S Spiegel

Our journey is supernatural, not carnal. All character and moral virtue is ultimately born out of a spiritually enlightened worldview. I don’t know about anyone else, but thanks to the grace of God I’m more steadfast than ever regarding what I believe and what it means to be a believer. My foundation can never fail because it lies outside myself, and it is Absolute Perfection!

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
