"God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. Yet his shadow still looms. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives; who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves?" Friedrich Nietzsche
In the wake of the 'murder' of Jesus Christ, second Person of the Holy Trinity, an anarchy of depravity has overtaken our Godless, paganized society. Posing as legal, political, special rights, superior expert opinion, and hurt feelings, self-righteous hypocritical moralists furiously charge President Trump and mainly white socially conservative Christians and like-minded Americans with spurious and guilt-inducing accusations of homophobia, racism, sexism, xenophobia, intolerance, hate, and mental illness. As this unrelenting reign of terror gains a more complete hold over our society what follows in its wake is a mobocracy of absurdity, nihilism, paranoia, scapegoating, brutality, attempts at murder, chaos and tyranny.
Exemplifying some of this madness is a Huffington Post article, "Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People." This twisted anthem of shameless self-pity was written by a weepy-eyed young black women, an oppressed and ‘racialized’ fourth year journalism student at Ryerson University. The self-adoring egoist who penned this drivel is so blinded by her self-gratifying self-pity and presumption that in her demand for safe-spaces she inadvertently confesses that she is paranoid, a delusion experienced by many narcissists.
Narcissists are self-centered, thus in their intense examination of ‘self,’ can and do imagine that other people must be as obsessed by thoughts of the pompous ‘self’ as the egoist is with him or herself. This is why the self-centered person can easily imagine that he or she is the target of persecution and hatred by others, in this case, by millions of evil white racists whose obsessive thoughts and sole aim in life is to cause the self-pitying author to suffer. According to the paranoid narcissist:
"Racialized people experience systemic discrimination on a daily basis, on many levels, and in ways that white people may never encounter. The whole point of these safe spaces is to remove that power dynamic. That's partly what makes them spaces for healing. The presence of any kind of privilege puts unnecessary pressure on the people of colour to defend any anger or frustrations they have, to fear the outcome of sharing their stories..." (Ethnic Minorities Deserve Safe Spaces Without White People, 03/18/2015 )
The iniquity lurking beneath the paranoid suggestion that ‘racialized people’ need ‘safe spaces’ because of so-called ‘systemic discrimination’ by evil white racists is scapegoating.
A scapegoat is a person or group of people made to take the blame for everything that goes wrong. In practice, it occurs when the guilty project their own sins upon another person or group of people:
"And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat." Leviticus 16:8
After all of the sins of the people were symbolically transferred onto the scapegoat it was further burdened with all marks of reproach, imprecations, and hate. After this the people prayed that all those evils, which were due to themselves, might fall upon the goat rather than on the sinners themselves even though scapegoating cannot clean a depraved conscience.
A depraved conscience denotes a rebellious, pride-inflated mind given over by God to a debased, empty mind (Rom. 1:28) devoid of all true knowledge and judgment; incapable of approving what is truly good:
“This accounts for the justness of the divine procedure in leaving them to commit such scandalous iniquities; that since they had some knowledge of God by the light of nature, and yet did not care to retain God in their knowledge; or to own and acknowledge him as God, to worship and glorify him as such; but took every method to erase this knowledge out of their minds, and keep it from others.” Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
Pride blinds the miscreant’s vision of the evil thing he or she has become while scapegoating allows for the crucifixion of the scapegoat on the reprobate’s own altar of self-adoration, presumption, and cruelty.
The Middle East is a scapegoating society where rape victims can be stoned to death for ‘causing’ the rapist to rape them. Now Godless America is rapidly transitioning into a cruel scapegoating society. This is because great numbers of ‘sinless’ Americans---Leftists, Transhumanists, pagans, Progressive ‘Christians,’ Cultural Marxist social justice warriors and similar self-righteous morally pure hypocrites--- reject their own sinfulness in favor of self-creation, autonomy, 'moral purity,' sacred opinions, and omniscient gut feelings. Thus they defiantly refuse to accept personal responsibility for their own evils while insolently and hypocritically scapegoating other people even as they ‘give thanks’ to their idols for making them perfect:
“The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.” Luke 18:11
Inflated pride, a depraved conscience, and self-righteous hypocrisy are why so-called social justice warriors scapegoat millions of white people. It is also why men and women of Sodom scapegoat and crucify ‘hateful homophobic’ Christian men and women while pedophiles and pederasts scapegoat and crucify parents for trying to protect their children from sexual violation. It is also why liars scapegoat the truthful; thieves, rioters and murderers scapegoat society, and so-called ‘faithful’ ‘Christian’ social justice warriors and critical race theorists scapegoat orthodox white Christians.
"He who sacrifices to any god, other than to the LORD alone, shall be utterly destroyed.” Exodus 22:20
The Decalogue shows that the beginning of idolatry is pride (preference for self over God and neighbor). The will of the idolater is not in submission to God but self, thus having made an idol out of himself he assumes he possesses honor and rights. This is why pride and a will turned toward wickedness (self) leads to contempt for and outright hatred of the Holy Triune God, neighbor, Truth, moral law, goodness, norms, authority, standards, rules, and institutions in favor of lust for power, greed, perverse sexuality, and dehumanization of other people.
In the Godless Soviet Union, idolatry, depravity, relativism, and Darwin’s pseudo-scientific evolutionary theory unleashed a murderous blood-thirsty beast that consumed the lives of more than one hundred million men, women, and children:
"As many as 7 million Ukrainians were starved in Soviet Socialist dictator Joseph Stalin's artificial, forced famine in Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. This is approximately the total population of Manitoba, Newfoundland, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island." (Inky Mark, M. P. Dauphin — Swan River House of Commons 2 June 1998, Famine-Genocide in Ukraine 1932-1933)
"Moscow employed the famine as a political weapon against the Ukrainians in the years 1932-1933. The famine was in its entirety artificially induced and organized." (ibid, F. M. Pigido -an economist who lived and worked in Ukraine during the Famine of 1932-1933, Investigation of Communist Takeover and Occupation of the Non-Russian Nations of the U.S.S.R p. 35)
According to the authors of "The Black Book of Communism," Communist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were criminal enterprises in their very essence:
"...all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate...any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia...the clergy...military officers and the police." (pp. xvii, 8-9)
When a society turns away from the Holy Creator God to deified self, it is an idolatrous society heading for destruction:
“The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear." Matthew 13: 41-43
Lest we mistakenly perceive idolaters as nice, misunderstood people, in "Journey to the Celestial City," Wayne Martindale sets straight this error with his unvarnished depiction of hell-bound idolaters as haters of good people. All that's left in them is self-centeredness, hate, envy, lies, and thoughts of theft and murder and sadistic pleasure received from hurting other people,, They are evil, violent idolaters who prefer evil thoughts, evil words, evil companions and evil acts. Thus when they encounter good people they,
"...condemn them, perverting their reason by rationalizing evil and finding ways to blame the good or God or religion for their problems and the problems of the world. They already hate goodness because it implicitly condemns the evil they have chosen. They wouldn't like heaven if they could have it. They are, in a sense, already in hell, preferring darkness to light." (Eternal Perspectives, Randy Alcorn, p 76)
When a majority of a society’s citizens are no longer guilty of their own evils, scapegoats are necessary. Human scapegoats will be burdened with the evils of the guilty and cruelly burned on altars of the depraved. Scripture calls this idolatry. and since idolatry leads to the conceptual murder of the Word Who created the heavens and earth (Gen. 1:1; John 1:1, 14) and to the rejection of His work on the cross, this means that by their own choice they assign themselves to hell by judging themselves unfit for Paradise:
"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death". Revelation 21:8
