Continuing from the last letter regarding US politics, we had just asked:
"So... what are some of the favorite sins of the left and right ?"
Of course we are referring to the US "political left" and "political right", along with the collective ideology that each puts forth, also known as their "platform" or positions. We are not referring to any given individuals, because while people might lean left or lean right overall, it doesn't mean they are in total agreement with each and every one of their "party's" positions; often, they might adhere to some positions from the other side as well, or even to some positions taken by neither.
That said, let's start with some of the sins of the left, merely because one of them has to go first. (To those who would rather start with some of the sins of the right first, please simply read Letter #14 before this one.)
As for the US left... they will not be happy until the USA is fully converted into Sodom and Gomorrah West, with government-mandated approval for every sexual perversion under the sun; yet also with free, government-funded, baby-murdering (abortion) clinics widely available, just in case a few people still choose to commit at least some of their fornications and adulteries in a heterosexual manner.
"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination." - Leviticus 18:22
"For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them." - Romans 1:26-32
"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God." - 1 Corinthian 6:9-10
"He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." - Revelation 21:7-8
"Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city (of Heaven). But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie." - Revelation 22:14-15
Moreover, from the perspective of the USA left, until all women have become men (literally and/or in behavior), and all men have been emasculated into becoming women (literally and/or in behavior), the left will not cease in its attempts to neuter the made-at-Creation fact that God made men men, and women women, and the two are different.
The basis of the left's deplorable and willful denial of this simple Truth is that the two (and still only two) genders in the US, for the most part, actually hate each other. This is especially true for those on the left (although the right is not totally immune to it, either).
One of the reasons for this is, in the US, the two genders from their youth are taught by US liberal sex-based "culture" to chase the objects of their lusts. But as they grow from childhood to young adulthood along such a superficial, covetous, and adulterous path, the so-called "relationships" with the opposite gender that they attempt to form easily break, and emotional pain ensues.
The resultant mistrust of the opposite gender mixed with continued habituated lust for the opposite gender then becomes a very bad combination; and by it, each gender seeks to gain control over that which hurts them. But as each additional non-marriage liaison fails in its immaturity, lust, selfishness, and sin, the inner-hatred between the genders builds. From there, it manifests itself in many ways, even throughout other realms of US society, wherever men and women compete for control in both subtle and not-so-subtle ways.
Covetousness, lusts, fornications, adulteries, emotional pain, women and men hating and competing, seeking control over each other... is any of this God's Way ? Of course not. God doesn't want us to have "relationships" founded in superficiality and sin; He wants us to have relationships founded properly, in Him. Joy and Peace cannot thrive where (what should be) the foundation of family is destroyed.
There is a reason God tells us that sex is only for marriage, and that marriage is for life. There is a reason God tells us that marriage consists of a man and a woman. There is a reason the foundation of family is firmly embedded in God's Commandments, with proper, committed marriages in Commandment #7; proper parent-child relationships in Commandment #5; and even God's jealousy for us in Commandment #2, proving His desire for us to choose to be His family.
And the reason is: God Loves us, and does not want us to suffer the ravages of sin !
Non-relationships, non-families, broken families, unhappy marriages... once people become so prideful, fearful, and inwardly hardened by these things, they rarely, if ever, admit to themselves - in front of God - the true emotional toll these things take on a human being.
How many in the US can even shed tears anymore for their own personal destruction, or the destruction of their children ? Few. Most just try to handle it all by pride... or even more sin.
And thus, refusing repentance, having little or no forgiveness, and not looking to God and Jesus for the only Way to Life, the end result is a sin-sickened society of hardened, pain-filled people, many of whom inwardly hate and blame others for their own destruction, especially the opposite gender, with a hatred that manifests outwardly, and in many ways.
In the US, things are so bad at this point that many women on the left just want to subjugate, override, or replace men altogether, either with women, men who are willing to act like women, or machines.
And the men on the left... it seems that many of them have simply given up on being married, not wanting to bother with women at all; except, of course, for short stints of adulteries and fornications, in parallel with the frequent lusts they feed into their minds and hands by electronic means.
Needless to say, of those, for whom the frequency of adulteries and fornications with "actual" women (besides the mind and hand activity fed by electronics) is not enough to tamp down their lusts completely, a number will choose the path of homosexuality, an unnatural path of total depravity and moral abandonment in which lust knows no bounds, regardless of the words spoken to cover it up.
Whether with the opposite gender, or even worse, the same gender, or even worse still, all of the above, all adulteries and fornications - including those kept privately in the mind and hand - serve only to sear the conscience, harden the heart, and embed lust addictions into the flesh, from which the mental, physical, and emotional damage becomes the addict's prison.
As for those who think they'll just shut off their poisoned flesh like a light switch and "return to normal" someday if or when they want a "happy home", they'll find out that these things make it a long and difficult road back to what is Right and Good and Lovely and True, where they can begin to build upon a foundation of a committed loving home and family. In Truth, most will never find the Narrow Way; and if they do, it will be with permanent heartbreak as to who they were and how they lived in all the years of their destruction.
As for the men on the left who are (or want to be) married, it seems that many of them have given up on the idea of assuming, with the associated responsibilities, their God-ordained role as head of their own household. Instead, too worn-down and weak-willed to continue battling for hierarchy in their own household against their masters, their wives who want to be men, they finally, meekly give up and give in to living as public eunuchs who despise their own lives. Inwardly hating wife and life, with a forced "no really, I'm happy" smile, they too, like their unmarried brethren, frequently escape into private electronic lust-world until the day of their empty demise.
Truly, is it any wonder why little children are confused ? So many of them are spoon-fed the left's sinful secular humanism in place of God's Way, even being told that the way of sin is better ! And yet, still, deep in their own little Spirit, the little children know it's wrong. They know they need both a mom and dad. And they know that while mom should have equal say, dad should have equal and final say.
But instead of repenting, the left tries to gloss over the almost-complete destruction in the West of proper gender roles and proper family relationships by pretending that, no, it's not destruction. In fact, they lie more boldly than should be humanly possible by pretending that all the perversions and broken homes and broken families and gender role-reversals that go against humankind are actually based on -- this is hard to even write because it's such a lie -- the left will tell you that these things are based on... l-o-v-e.
But since True Love cannot exist without the Truth, the left's "version of love" is not True Love at all, but only the destruction of life.
And yes, many people on the right do fall into the same adulterous trap of lusts, perversions, and broken families as those on the left.
But many more on the left seek to defend such sins as "normal", even the way society should be, as though such evil is a good thing.
In fact, the left rationalizes all of its favorite sins as simply a "choice", as though all choices are okay and should be given equal consideration. The left gets extremely hostile to anyone who raises any suggestion at all that there should be discernment between good and evil, or that there's even such a thing as sin at all; for if the left would have to admit that, they'd have to repent and change.
But, being prideful in their secular humanism, the left hates anything to do with God, preferring instead to call evil good, and good evil, thereby promoting the biggest lie of all, even as the one who hands them that lie - Satan - mocks them for being so easy to manipulate.
It's a shame, too. Because the folks on the left - including many, many children - suffer just as much as anyone else over these issues. But left, right, or in-between, if we suffer and refuse to look up, how will we ever turn and allow Jesus to heal us ? Lies are not Truth, and perversion, the destruction of families, and ill will between the genders - all caused by preventable sin - is not Love, but the opposite.
It is indeed sad. But even so, as large a realm of sin as all of this is in the USA (and the West), it is not the only realm of sin rationalized and supported by the US left, so let's move on.
Now, besides the aforementioned abominations, the left also won't be satisfied until every person who was raised responsibly, who took their education seriously, who works hard for a living to provide for family, and who has remained financially responsible, is fleeced for everything they have in order to provide for a society and its government that are very often the opposite of these things.
(This is not to say that responsible people wouldn't care for the truly poor - like the blind, the lame, orphans, family-less poor widows, the mentally ill, and the number of others who truly need help. It is also not to say that responsible people wouldn't pay for reasonable, limited government services like national defense (i.e. within the nation's borders); an efficient judicial system; interstate highways; and national parks; as opposed to endless wars of aggression; corporate pandering and welfare; countless, wasteful special interests; and all other areas of debt, corruption, and national and world-wide destruction that are in no way legitimate functions of government.)
In addition, the left also pressures to use the public education system, as well as US government-subsidized public television and radio, to push their favorite sins onto each and every new generation of US children, thus ensuring that their favorite sins will continue to spread like an uncontrolled disease throughout US society, and also the Western world, and any others who aspire to be "like the West".
We could go on, as there are plenty more sins of the US left, such as the left's worship of its favorite idol, mainstream "popular" culture; and the left's deplorable, devil-prodded self-exaltation, which serves as the driver for things like the left's love of secular humanism; the left's rejection of God, Jesus, and the Truth of God's Word; the left's baseless pretense of (self-appointed) intellectual superiority (Have they ever outsmarted God ? If so, why do they still die ?); the left's self-righteous disgust with the right's "religious" hypocrisy, even as the left uses it as their cheap excuse to continue in their own chosen willful sins, thereby being no more moral, Godly, or Christ-like than those they condemn; and so on.
But, since it's too disheartening to continue contemplating any more sins of the US left... not to mention the fact that the US right is also not without sin, we'll stop here and continue in the next letter by discussing some of the sins of the right.
In closing, please accept this final reminder that consensus preferences and positions of a collective group, such as the US left or right, more often than not do not form an exact profile of a given person within that group; for many might agree with some of the group's positions, while disagreeing with other positions. Just because a given person might vote for a group they lean toward, it rarely means they agree with everything the group is about; they might just as often vote against a group whose values they identify with even less.
