Feminism, homosexism, and veganism: The Grand Conspiracy
An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule on their own authority; and My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it? (Jeremiah 5:30, 31)
You may want to dismiss it as looniness, but this assault against God's Order of Creation is rebellion against the God Who made us. It's not naive or misguided. It's evil. Attacks on God's Creation Order are all around us and we must recognize that each of them is a part of Satan's conspiracy to grease the descent to Hell.
Feminism is a Satanic conspiracy against God's Creation Order. God made Adam first, then Eve. Thus those who conspire to place woman in positions where she teaches and exercises authority over man are rebels against Almighty God. They are false prophets calling souls to Hell.
Homosexism is a Satanic conspiracy against God's Creation Order. God made Eve--not Steve--for Adam. Thus those who conspire to legalize sodomy and promote sodomitic unions are rebels against Almighty God. They are false prophets calling souls to Hell.
Veganism is a Satanic conspiracy against God's Creation Order. God created adam alone--both Adam and Eve--in His Own Image. He did not create animals in His Image. Thus those whose morality has descended to Veganism and the claim of personhood and legal standing for animals are rebels against Almighty God. They are false prophets calling souls to Hell.
Satan has conspired to paint each of these revolutions a pretty face. Feminism is a long-overdue correction of patriarchal oppression. Homsexism is a long overdue correction of homophobic oppression. Veganism is a long-overdue correction of speciest oppression.
Satan has also conspired to silence the Church of Jesus Christ...Feminsim is fine in Congress and the White House as long as it stays out of my home, our pulpit Sunday morning, and our session's formal votes of disciplinary action. Homosexism is fine on Craig's List, in the bedrooms of my rental properties, and in our choir rooms and organ lofts as long as it stays away from me, my wife, and my children. Veganism is fine as long as it doesn't try to take the burgers or brats off my grill.
In fact, it's all fine as long as we private Christians are allowed to live and preach and pray our private consciences in private peace. We recognize that humans of good conscience can disagree over the laws holding our civil compact together and clearly the Bible teaches that it's not the Church's responsibility to make godless man good. We are not to force our neighbor to abide by Christian's private standards of right and wrong. Such intolerance is contrary to Christian charity. The New Testament calls us to preach the Gospel--not our own private view of what is and isn't moral. Anyhow, unbelievers simply can't live morally until they come to faith by confessing the Westminster Standards after receiving Trinitarian baptism. (Or is it Trinitarian Baptism?)
As I said, Satan has conspired to silence the witness of the Church to God's Creation Order. He uses Escondido theologians to privatize it, CBMW exegetes mince it, a Covenant ethicist to legalize it, Calvin profs to shrink from it, Redeemer ecclesiastics to equivocate, ETS academics to discuss it, and Bible translators to silence it.
American Christians love it so, but what will they do in the end?
