The current global crisis stems from a rejection of God by Joseph Farah for Life Site News
When we stop believing in God and sin, man starts believing in anything – and everything.
“When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing – they believe in anything.” – G.K. Chesterton
“In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” – Judges 21:25
Have we ever seen a time like this – in America, in the world?
It’s getting scary out there.
It’s been a rough nine months, hasn’t it been?
I’ve never witnessed anything like it. They say times like this try men’s souls.
Think about what we have seen. It started with an election gone wrong. We were cheated out of an honest, forthright, legitimate presidential vote – in America, the land of the free and the home of brave. Then everything started going awry. We couldn’t talk about it. No one was really talking about it – certainly not in the Big Media, not on Big Tech platforms. That would cause us to be canceled.
Then we were divided by vaccination status. If we had a card from the authorities indicating we received the shot, then we could get food, we could travel, we could keep our job. Otherwise, we would be canceled.
It reminds me of something I heard about the Antichrist in the end of days.
It’s almost enough to get you to stop believing in God. Or, maybe, to get you thinking seriously about Him – to get you devoted to Him.
But today we’re living amongst a generation that knows not Jesus – and things are getting worse.
The great British journalist-theologian G.K. Chesterton had it just about right when he explained what happens when people stop believing in God.
It’s true. They don’t just believe in nothing. They believe in anything and everything – every absurd notion, every myth and the perpetration of every unspeakable horror.
Chesterton was merely echoing biblical truths:
Genesis 6:5: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
Jeremiah 7:24: “But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”
Romans 1:21: “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”
