On today’s radio commentary, Linda Harvey called on Christians to exercise spiritual discernment when it comes to the “high intensity big media repetition of lies” on issues like homosexuality and abortion, because Satan is “weaving a bit of truth with extremely convincing lies” in order to take “the compassionate nature of Christians and use it against us” in an effort to silence them and turn people away from God.
Harvey also lashed out at the “lies by vicious bloggers that are told about me” as well as the “cyberbullying that is going on every day by anti-Christian, deliberately deceitful writers” who are seeking to “draw people away from Christ.” We wonder who she could possibly have in mind?
Our spiritual enemy is doing just what he did to temp Jesus in the desert, weaving a bit of truth with extremely convincing lies that many will have trouble rejecting. It’s hateful to say anything against homosexual behavior, we hear. Yes, people can be unkind about many things but God has still said it’s a grave sin and we can still see the clear evidence of that fact if we look.
How clever is this, taking the compassionate nature of Christians and using it against us? If we don’t speak up, young people especially will deceived. The spells some people fall under who become enchanted by sin is hard to break and so they go down destructive roads and their eyes are blinded, possibly for their whole lives and they spend eternity separated from God because they denied him over and over.
It’s hard enough to take the lies by vicious bloggers that are told about me, but I have a great support network and God has been more than gracious, so I feel extremely blessed. But that doesn’t justify the cyberbullying going on every day by anti-Christian, deliberately deceitful writers and the enormous damage it’s doing to draw people away from Christ.
