As Christians, we say that we value our soul more than our body. In God’s mercy, he used the last two years to reveal all the liars.
In Jeremiah 18, God makes a unique promise regarding all nations at all times.
“I am praying for them. I am NOT praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.” (John 17:9 ESV)
Idolatry is not merely immoral, it is foolish. When the Bible speaks of those who worship idols it not only describes them as morally wicked, but also stupid. This is because idols are stupid (dumb, blind, deaf, lifeless). And those who worship idols will become like them.
Scripture is clear that God “takes no pleasure in the destruction of the wicked.” However, Scripture also tells us that God mocks the wicked, in the sense that God sees their feeble attempts to cast off his authority and “he who sits in the heavens laughs.” As the people of God, we should seek to imitate God’s holy example.
As it turns out, all that was required to defeat the West was simply calling them racists.
