They will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for My name’s sake. Luke 21:12.
The dictionary defines totalitarian as 1.) “relating to a centralized government that does not tolerate parties of differing opinion and that exercises dictatorial control over many aspects of life” and 2.) “exercising control over the freedom, will, or thought of others.”
The key words to notice are: “not tolerate”, “dictatorial control over … freedom, will, and thought.”
There has always been examples of totalitarian control both politically, religiously, and culturally throughout history but not so much in the United States … until recently.
Today, if anyone dares believe or speak what God’s Word says about sexuality, creationism, the exclusivity of Jesus Christ, amongst other issues, the totalitarian enforcers of our age come out in full force to silence, harm, and discard that person, business, or state from existence. This from those who pride themselves on being “tolerant.”
This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we will examine the totalitarian tide and how Christians should live and respond.
