I'm a Christian, and I'm not in an uproar. There are emotionally charged extremists in about every sphere, that generally don't have a proper focus.
Here's a Christian perspective.
The world of the apostles' day was filled with idols. There is no false god more false than another, only one God. Those dead idols and false gods
were preached against, to inform people of the true and living God. Christians didn't go around, tearing down infrastructure. There isn't one whit
difference between some idol worshiper and a generic unbeliever: all those not born of the Spirit are dead in trespasses and sins, and are, by
default, children of the devil. This is Christian theology of scripture. Hebrews 12 is even clear that, if you're not a child of God, you're a
The damned are the damned, the saved the saved. Neither is there some Satanic statue that rises to any level of wickedness that exceeds a television
situation comedy, that makes light of things like drunkenness or homosexuality. What is called "the world" of scripture, the temporal things of the
flesh people live for and covet, this is the devil's system. Simply common sense, I challenge anybody to tell me what the difference is between
somebody going to hell for being a drunk, or going to hell over some idol statue, going to hell for not believing there's a devil, as opposed to going
to hell for worshiping the devil. Therefore, what wickedness is there, that damns, of any stripe, that is not offensive? If you're in an uproar over
some dead idol, why aren't you in an uproar over all things sinful that, in fact, you probably feed yourself a steady diet of, on your TV? Also, to
you Christians, what on earth are you expecting of the world? What does scripture teach about the world? In an uproar, why? Were you born yesterday,
just learned there's a devil?
So, I don't get the uproar part. Sin is sin. None of it is pretty. And the Bible even has a statement as to the status of the unrepentant versus the
Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be
righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
I would also go as far as to say one thing for the Satanists, that at least they know and declare where they stand, aren't wholly blind little dupes
of Satan, that don't even believe he exists, that are programmed to go to hell by a television tube that tells them how to live for the world, the
flesh and the devil. At least the Satanist declares something, is smart enough to know something, as opposed to people that are simply blind, poor,
brainwashed slobs of materialism, that one could say this to, "You don't know anything. If you knew you don't know anything, at least you'd know
something. But you don't."
Revelation 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
In other words, the smarmy little atheist fools, that mock the things of God, may as well be bent over that Baphomet idol 24x7, also. Hell and the
lake of fire are just that, equal opportunity damnation, and it won't much matter, at that point, what got all of you there. Put it this way. Just
what's the uproar over one way to be damned, over any other?
In addition, if letting Satanists do their thing means Christians can also do our thing, then bring on the Satanists, as the last thing I want, as a
Christian, is government mucking in religion. You government people? Collect your taxes and bribes, fix potholes, and just stay the hell out of what
people are free to believe, to each his own. And Christian? Your job is to bring the gospel, then move along, where the unrepentant are concerned, not
start tearing stuff down or force anything on anybody. Christianity is not a faith of compulsion. There is not a single case in the New Testament of
Christians engaging in prosecuting lawful sin, and that which is unlawful is the job of government to prosecute. It's the Lord's job to tear down the
devil's world, in His time, not yours, and the Lord Jesus did not spend five minutes on the politics of the world. Romans 12:19, Mark 6:11, Mark
Is a person even a Christian, that's obsessed with mucking in the affairs of the world? John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if
my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
