There is a far more deadly virus than COVID that threatens the very way of life of every American. It is infecting the country in many forms. Censorship, hostility toward Christianity, government spending, invasion of your privacy, controlling your movement—it’s lethal to freedom. It’s called socialism. This socialism coinfection is spreading faster than COVID 19 itself, and it is a threat your every liberty, including your freedom to worship. There are two bills making their way through Congress that represent this virus—the $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill that mortgages your future to redistribute wealth and to buy power, and the Equality Act that will attempt to abolish Constitutionally guaranteed religious freedom.
The Communist Manifesto states: “…Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis.” This is the basis for all socialism and progressivism as well. It is godless and evil. The Bible tells us 2 Timothy 3:13, “Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” Ephesians 5:6 tells us “Let no man deceive you with vain words.” There is great deception in the vain words of socialists and communists. They ply the nature of humans with powerful words like “rights” and “equality” when, in reality, they wish to kill, steal and destroy. Is this not what is happening in our country today?
An example is the exchange between Congressmen Greg Steube (R-FL) and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on the floor of the House of Representatives February 25. In debating the Democrat’s Equality Act, Steube quoted the Bible and warned that “the gender confusion that exists in our culture today is a clear rejection of God’s good design,” saying “whenever a nation’s laws no longer reflect the standards of God, that nation is in rebellion against him and will inevitably bear the consequences.” To which Nadler interrupted and emphatically stated, “Mr. Steube, what any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress.” Indeed, this statement reflecting the Democratic Party platform and most of its adherents is indicative of their assault on the US Constitution as they embrace the Communist Manifesto.
Americans have elected a majority of officeholders at the national level who are infected with the deadly virus of socialism. These officeholders, however, are molded in the image of those who voted for them. This Congress is passing laws to take your money and give it to those who didn’t work for it. This Congress is passing laws that specifically outlaws religious exemptions. This Congress is passing laws that label you a bigot if you believe in the God-ordained union of man and woman. Your Constitutional rights are being killed by the carriers of the deadly virus of socialism. Christ said in Mark 12:17, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” To some, God is government. It is their religion. It is an all-consuming virus and the only antidote is the one true God. Herd immunity needed.
