Why America Is The Way It Is

And so these people have no excuse:  they knew God and yet they did not honour him as God or give thanks to him, but their arguments became futile and their uncomprehending minds were darkened.  While they claimed to be wise, in fact they were growing so stupid that they exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an imitation, for the image of a mortal human being, or of birds, or animals, or crawling things. That is why God abandoned them in their inmost cravings to filthy practices of dishonouring their own bodies- because they exchanged God’s truth for a lie and have worshipped and served the creature instead of the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. — (Rom. 1:20-25)

You reap what you sow- whether you’re an individual or a collective.

Quote of the Day

You will treat resident aliens as though they were native-born and love them as yourself — for you yourselves were once aliens in Egypt. I am Yahweh your God. (Lev. 19:34)

Evil Brings its Own Particular Punishment

God has punished you by making you incapable of understanding truth, virtue, or honor, thus handing you over to the devil to tell nothing but lies, indeed, to do all that is evil, and to upset all that is good.  — Martin Luther

Anti-Refugee, Anti-Christ

‘Christians’ who are anti-refugee don’t have a theological leg to stand on.  They oppose Christ himself.  As such, they are anti-Christ.
