For all o’ those professing conservative Christians in America who are somehow actually still confused as to “how, oh how(!)” our culture could have possibly sunk so quickly and deeply into its present vile and disgusting state, our friends the Satanists have once again come along on cue to dutifully remind us of what is really at the root of all the multigenerational cultural rot that’s now coming into full bloom here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.
Yes, even Satanists are ultimately God’s tools, whether the like it or not (and they don’t).
So how is God using these sad, deranged little advocates of suicidal pride in America these days?
Well, there are many ways, of course, but the one we’ll take a sec to focus on here is the manner in which He’s using them to demonstrate – in increasingly flagrant fashion – the suicidally stupid and destructive power of our All-American adoration of religious pluralism. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.)
Put another way, God is using these particular tools at this particular time to demonstrate once again that His Word is not optional. It is binding…right here and right now…even in America. (See: Who owns America? (Hint: Not “We the People”.).)
So when CBS reports, as they did today, that Detroit is set to host “the largest public satanic ceremony in history” at which a giant statue of Satan will be proudly unveiled and worshipped under the protection of American-style counterfeit “freedom” and “liberty”, we really shouldn’t be surprised.

This is just “the right to freely worship any god you want” in action.
And what could be more American than that? (See: Well color me satanic and call me America! (Or: How our cherished tolerance for false gods is killing us.).)
So the next time you hear someone – especially a professing conservative Christian – in America act all confused and appalled at the way the Big Gay Wave is rolling over the culture or how child sacrifice is an openly ongoing and “legally” protected business in America, kindly ask them what they think of the All-American approach to “rights” – particularly the so-called “God-given ‘right’ to worship any god”. (See: Confronting Americult.)
Ask them what the ruling Law of the land really is? (See: What is the ruling law of our land?)
Ask them if they really believe that America has the power to make “legal” that which God has declared to be lawless?
Get them to thinking…lovingly, graciously, but firmly.
That’s what we need here and now in America. More than ever before.
Until we lovingly confront and correct this culture – beginning in the professing Christian sub-culture – with the Gospel-fueled Great Commission, we are doomed to a future of more and more murdered babies, the normalization of more and more sexual perversion, and the open worship of more and more satanic false gods…all pursued proudly in the name of American-style “freedom” and “liberty”.

If there is a God who will damn his children forever, I would rather go to hell than to go to heaven and keep the society of such an infamous tyrant. I make my choice now. I despise that doctrine. It has covered the cheeks of this world with tears. It has polluted the hearts of children, and poisoned the imaginations of men. It has been a constant pain, a perpetual terror to every good man and woman and child. It has filled the good with horror and with fear; but it has had no effect upon the infamous and base. It has wrung the hearts of the tender; it has furrowed the cheeks of the good. This doctrine never should be preached again. What right have you, sir, Mr. clergyman, you, minister of the gospel, to stand at the portals of the tomb, at the vestibule of eternity, and fill the future with horror and with fear? I do not believe this doctrine: neither do you. If you did, you could not sleep one moment. Any man who believes it, and has within his breast a decent, throbbing heart, will go insane. A man who believes that doctrine and does not go insane has the heart of a snake and the conscience of a hyena.
Robert G. Ingersoll, The Liberty of Man, Woman and Child
God does not condemn anyone to hell. He gives everyone the opportunity to choose heaven by accepting Jesus as Lord of his or her life. Only rejecting His plan of salvation sends a person to hell. God provides the way, it's up to you choose.
Jesus does not fail. He perfectly saves His Bride completely. He's not "trying to" save her. He's not "hoping to" save her. He's not "doing the best He can" or "all that He can" to save her, hoping that she will finish the job herself.
Jesus finished the work of her salvation completely. His bride (the church) did *nothing* to contribute to her salvation. He did it all.
With this understood, it becomes easier to reject the popular modern notion of Jesus something like a pizza guy waiting at the door begging us to let Him in so He can give us something really, really good. The one true Christ is nothing of the sort.
Jesus doesn't beg. He commands. Thus, His bride rises from death to obedient life.
He is the King of all creation, including time itself. He has just as firm a hand on the future as He does in the past. He owns it all. He has crafted it all. He is not time bound; He is the Author and Sustainer of time itself.
As for hell, God owns it just as surely as He owns anything else. It's not as though people end up there "accidentally". God sends unrepentant unbelievers to that place. Nothing ultimately "slips through the cracks" in God's creation. There are no such cracks to be found, however much men may like to imagine otherwise.
Salvation is really, truly, and awesomely by grace alone.
Consider the following passage and note the obliteration of *any* work (including a choice) as playing *any* role in the salvation of God's people:
But it is not as though the word of God has failed. For not all who are descended from Israel belong to Israel, and not all are children of Abraham because they are his offspring, but “Through Isaac shall your offspring be named.” This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as offspring. For this is what the promise said: “About this time next year I will return, and Sarah shall have a son.” And not only so, but also when Rebekah had conceived children by one man, our forefather Isaac, though they were not yet born and had done nothing either good or bad—in order that God's purpose of election might continue, not because of works but because of him who calls—she was told, “The older will serve the younger.” As it is written, “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”
What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God's part? By no means! For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills.
You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use? What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory—
