WHEN SPIRITUAL AND INTELLECTUAL TWITS TWEETER AND LAUNCH TIRADES AGAINST THE GOD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.”
Yesterday, Mike Lindell, the founder of My Pillow was one of several corporate heads invited to report on their contribution/donation to the coronavirus problem. He closed with an expression of his concern that our “nation had turned its back on God,” and said, “I encourage you use this time at home to get back in the Word, read our Bibles and spend time with our families. With our great president,, and this administration, and all the great people in this country praying daily we will get through this and get back to a place that is stronger and safer than ever.” The negative response from the mainstream media, liberals, leftists and non-Christians was immediate, involving a barrage of mockery, off-the-chart vulgarity, hatefulness and a spewing forth of sacrilege and blasphemy.
But some of the negative response was of a milder sort, such as the following tweet: “This is what I don’t get about my conservative friends. Why infuse one’s religion into a situation that doesn’t need religious infusing? Secular updates require secular language.” Maybe I can help.
The reason people like this tweeter “don’t get” things like this is because they don’t have the “getter” necessary to “get” it. Why?
Because, “The natural [unsaved] man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of
God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because
they are spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:14).
“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the
law of God, neither indeed can be.” (Rom. 8:7)
Because, these are people, who as a rule, do not “like to retain God
in their knowledge.” (Rom. 1:28).
Because it can be said of many people like this, that “Professing themselves
to be wise, they became fools,” (Rom. 1:22).
As for the question, “Why infuse one’s religion into a situation that doesn’t need religious infusing?” This is the kind of question that is typical and to be expected of people who are spiritually incapacitated and therefore challenged in terms of their ability to think. They have “religion” confused with God, the God of The Bible, the God worshipped by Christians. In other words, they don’t know what they’re talking about.
This tweeter, in a milder manner, demonstrates the moronic mind and the malignant, malicious spirit of resentment possessed by those who resent and attack any suggestion that God has any place in any of the affairs of men. But this God, our God, “rules all of the affairs of men” (Dan. 4:17). This is what the wicked do, because this is the way wicked people are: “The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.”
