Myth: Religion & Politics

~ Have You Bought Into Satan’s Lie? ~

 

The Myth  ~  “Don’t mix religion and politics.” What a lie! This is much like “you can’t legislate morality” and there should be “separation of church and state.” Unfortunately when something is stated frequently enough it becomes accepted as reality.  Then over time it is assumed to be fact! Satan is the master deceiver and uses lies frequently enough that they become accepted as truth!

 

The Result  ~  Satan uses false beliefs not only in society at large but also inside the church. These devastating ideas are like a virus that mutates and multiplies to the extent that it affects our very core. They are like spiritual cancers.

 

Look around at the moral condition of our nation and our world. Our societal leaders are secular, unprincipled, ungodly, misguided, and incapable of being stewards of the blessings of God so freely bestowed on society. 

 

Secular nations have ignored and spurned the Bible. It has not always been so. The Bible was revered by most of the founders of the United States of America. The Bible strongly influenced the founding documents. Today the United States and most “developed nations” are in a headlong death spiral led by ungodly leaders.

 

The Remedy  ~  One of the great things about Jesus’ ministry while on earth was that He was not afraid to dispel popular myths. For example, in His Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) He repeatedly said, “You have heard it said,” and then countered with, “but I say unto you.” Jesus then set the matter straight by speaking the truth. The remedy for error is truth!

 

When Jesus Christ was tempted by Satan, He quoted the truth (in the form of Scripture) to refute each of Satan’s distorted arguments (Luke 4:1-13). We must know the Scripture and the one who is Truth (John 14:6) in order to combat the disastrous path of our churches and society as a whole. 

 

contemplate:   Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.

 

But not the wicked! They are like worthless chaff, scattered by the wind. They will be condemned at the time of judgment. Sinners will have no place among the godly. For the Lord watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction” (Psalm 1, New Living Translation).
