Bowing down to the idol

Posted by appolus on January 5, 2020

Just a couple of weeks ago a man from Iowa was sent to prison for 16 years for taking an LGBT flag from a church and burning it outside of a strip club. You might think this is outlandish in a country where many take pride in burning the American flag, but what was burned was an idol. An idol that is increasingly intolerant of any objections. It is not good enough to be lawful, the idol demands that all must bow down to it and recognize it and celebrate it and if you do not, then you are a homophobe. The man in question is not a Christian and had in fact had two previous felonies on his record. In Iowa if you commit three felonies then you are considered an habitual offender and a large sentence follows. So, the question is, why is burning a flag, any flag, considered to be a felony?

In this case it was upgraded to a felony because of what he “thought,” about homosexuality. Yes, a thought crime. He does not like homosexuals. Now remember, you may not like America, as an American, and be able to burn the American flag. What you think about America is not a crime. What you think about homosexuals is and you will now face the full extent of the law. Remember how outraged the world was when an American was sentenced to life in prison for stealing a pizza? No outrage this time around. George Orwell writes, in his book “1984.” ………….

“The thought police would get him just the same. He had committed–would have committed, even if he had never set pen to paper–the essential crime that contained all others in itself. Thoughtcrime, they called it. Thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while, even for years, but sooner or later they were bound to get you.”

So we see that thought itself becomes controlled. For thoughts are expressed by words. Perhaps you can stay silent for a while and avoid the thought police, but in the end, as Orwell says, they will get you. For we see before us a litmus test rising from the ashes of free thought and speech. It will become illegal to consider homosexuality to be wrong or to be a sin. Then the men of the city said unto Joash, Bring out thy son, that he may die: because he hath cast down the altar of Baal, and because he hath cut down the grove that was by it. Jdg 6:30 When idols are cast down they strike back. Gideon threw down the idols of his father’s time and they demanded his death. When Daniel refused to cease praying to his God they demanded his death. When the three Hebrew children did the same thing they demanded their deaths. When they told the king that even if they were to die in the fire they would never bow down to the gods of this world. This enraged the king so much that the fire was kindled seven times hotter than it had ever been.

There is a fire coming brothers and sisters and it will be hotter than it has ever been before. The gods of this world shall demand that you fall down and worship them. They shall demand that you deny your own faith and the truths that it is founded upon. It will not matter that you remain silent and somehow try to “live and let live,” that old liberal adage that seems so quaint and gentile now in the days of tyranny. All that will matter is that you bow down. Your words and your thoughts will become and is becoming the front line in the battle for your soul. It will take the full armor of God to stand in the evil day. The day fast approaches, put on the full armor of God brothers and sisters and stand strong.
