I have an addiction almost as invasive and almost as damaging as my struggles with porn. This addiction is political online debate.
On Facebook I follow Kevin Sorbo, Franklin Graham, and about a dozen other Christian sites. By and large most of them are nothing but attacking Hillary and praising Trump. I don’t have as much of a problem with the former but a I do with the latter.
So I go on those pages showing them the scriptures that I base my argument on. They are Matthew 5-7, Galatians 5, and 2 Timothy 3. There are many more but they are the most succinct. They don’t care. They don’t want to read my scripture and question what they are doing. It is like talking to a brick wall.
I do so hoping and praying that just one who sees my posts will leave this death cult of American Fasicst Christianity. But they don’t. They just attack and attack.
Another thing that really bothers me about the site other than the very unChristian posts is that when they talk about sin. It is sexuality all the time. Like we are supposed to be the sexual moral police. But they never talk about the oppression of the poor. They never talk about economic immorality. They don’t talk about the rampant gun violence, they don’t talk about creation care. All they talk about is homosexual this and transgender that.
One of the main reasons why I have come over on the pro gay marriage side is because those who are most against it. Those who take the Bible literally without historic context when it comes to sex abandon their literal interpretation. It is the hypocrisy that I can’t stand.
This is not healthy for me. Jesus knew that. It takes energy to evangelize the faith. It takes energy to do God’s Kingdom work. So don’t waste that enemy on people who will just trample on everything you say like swine trample of the pearls in the parable.
So if I am giving up on talking to those who are lost but are filling their hole with hate, fear, and self righteuous judgement. I will contact my brethren. The mainstream churches. These are the churches that I believe can make a change. All we have to do is get off our buts and fight the power, the powers that be.
Sorry for going Public Enemy. But this anti-Christ spirit. This counterfeit Christianity of fear, hate, pride, and lies has to be fought and has to be fought hard. By the real Christians fighting fear with faith, Hate with love, pride with humility, and lies with the Truth of God.
Many of the fundamentalists may be lost. But there are many seekers. Many atheists who view this anti-church as the true church. If we do this right, with God’s help we could lead thousands home.
