There is no doubt that there have always been people who despised Christianity. I love the U.S.A and until recently, we have all been free to have our opinion about religion. We had freedom to believe and worship whomever and however we want. Yes, we have always had friction between religions. Mainly because it is hard to understand how others can believe the things they do but we managed. How many people reading this remember your parents or grandparents telling you something like, “That is their belief and they have all right to believe that way. You just leave them alone and they will leave you alone.” Most likely, you have had a visit from a Jehovah’s Witness and know they can be a little pushy. Still, you could choose to shut your door and continue your day unharmed or invite them in to talk. Maybe you were out shopping one day and someone handed you a tract with the salvation plan on it. You could choose to read it or throw it away. Have you ever walked down the street and heard a preacher standing on the corner shouting out verses from the Bible? If so, you had a choice to listen or keep walking.
None of those situations caused you any physical harm. If you are an unbeliever, they may have caused you moments of annoyance but still no harm. These people were exercising their freedom and you had the choice how to handle it.
A true unbeliever would be no more annoyed by one of these incidences as they would by being stuck in traffic or having a song they hate playing on their favorite radio station.
Then you have the bitter people. For whatever reason, something in their life has them really angry towards God and bitter. These people know what the Bible says. They know about the 10 Commandments, and the comfort believing in Christ gives people. Usually, these people are angry at God for various reasons. The most common complaint I hear is, “If there is a loving God who created everything then why does he allow innocent children and animals starve and die.” I also hear, “If there is a God then where was he when…”
If a bitter person allows you to talk to them long enough, you will typically find out that they feel like they were abandoned at one point in time by God. Maybe a family member they love is battling cancer or a spouse cheated on them after they worked so hard on their marriage.
These people have hate in their heart towards anything Godly and seek to destroy Christianity.
Let’s not forget the overly educated Scientist, Historian or Politician. These types of people have seen the world and it has made the bitter. Let me tell you it’s one thing to see starving kids, natural disasters, and wars on TV but if you ever see them in reality it can shake your faith. Pick up some history books and read about the slaughters that took place in God’s name. There have been more deaths in the name of God and Christianity than any other reason including money. Why? Is it because there is no God? Is it because God just doesn’t care about us? It’s less painful to think that there must be no God than to think there is and he is just allowing so many awful things to take place.
Questions I am asked by well educated people is, why are there so many people killing in God’s name? Why are there so many hypocritical Christians? If that is how God’s people act, than why would anyone want to believe there is a God. If that’s the way his followers should act than who in their right mind would want to be a follower?
Satan has used these very questions and Christian hypocrisy to keep people from turning to God since the beginning of time.
All these questions tend to push people into believing there must be a better explanation. A loving Creator that watches over us all and hears our prayers must be a myth. That’s where ideas like, The Big Bang Theory are born. Believing in a “theory” like that takes lots of faith too but it’s much easier to think things happened in some accidental way. You can’t expect too much from soulless humans that were once monkeys so, that explains the poor barbaric behavior of some.
Romans 1:22 KJV Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.
If you have ever studied Darwin’s theory of evolution you will quickly see how foolish it is. Unbelievers talk about how many holes there are in The Bible but actually with proper long term study you can find the answers. You can’t say that about Darwin’s publishing but that is because they are still working on getting the answers…
Don’t get me wrong, I am not against science. I love discovering new things about animals. Without science we wouldn’t have medicine. We wouldn’t know how our bodies work. Science is VERY important. It’s just not the answer to everything no matter how bad some want to believe it.
Before I get too far off track, I’ll just explain I mentioned these types of people because they are the ones trying to destroy Christianity. Whatever has happened to them or whatever they saw has made them completely intolerant to Christians. Recently, I spoke to a couple Atheists that lived a rather charmed life. They really had nothing against God if there was one but their father was incredibly bitter and raised them to be non-believers. I won’t tell you what happened to the man but it was serious enough for him to denounce his faith and raise his kids up hating Christians.
This man wrote a couple books about the blindness & idiocy of Christians and created a petition to have a church removed out of his neighborhood. The church bells and giant cross offended him. After learning more and more about the man I realized the church offended him because he was full of guilt and pure bitterness. It took a good month of letting the man put my beliefs down, allowing him to vent, and listening to him cry before he started to see himself that he was angry at God. Refreshing his mind with some Bible verses and just being a comfort to him changed him. He knew he wasn’t alone and someone cared. He wasn’t being judged for his behavior, he was loved despite his behavior. I understood his grief but I feared for his children. Deep down he did too and finally just two weeks ago he let the bitterness go. The Bible shows us how some great men hated Christians thousands of years ago just like today. These men killed Christians for their beliefs. God loved the men anyway, changed them, forgave them, and was able to use them. This man I just told you about was never as bad as Paul in the New Testament but he still caused people to turn against God. He fueled the bitterness of others and now he will spend the rest of his life trying to fix the mistakes he made. Even still, God forgave him and loves him. I believe that with all my heart.
Everyone’s story won’t end that way. I am not so gullible to believe that everyone unbeliever that reads this will realize God exist and give their life to him. Some people have made up their mind and no one is going to change it. God gave every human free will to believe what they want and he won’t force himself upon anyone. I believe the more someone pushes him away the harder it is for them to turn back, especially if you dedicated your life to disproving his existence.
Now we have established what causes people to be so hostile towards Christians. Hopefully, Christians can be more understanding when they see someone bashing what they believe in. But, should we sit back and let these people destroy all we believe in? No. When has it ever been right to let someone pitching a fit get away with a tantrum? That is exactly what these Agnostic Liberals are doing. They are pitching a fit out of anger and the people are giving into them. Every since we allowed one woman to throw a fit and get the Bible removed from schools, thousands have followed in her footsteps. All it takes these days is to declare that something offends you, give a little manipulating speech, and have a couple celebrities to back it up and walah they get their way!
One reason why it is so easy to do is because Christians are too scared to stand up for themselves. Why? Is it because Christians have no backbone? No, it’s because of how the Atheist Liberals manipulate and deceive the people. For instance, let’s use the issue of the Confederate flag. Everyone who knows me knows where I stand on the issue. I will not allow a Liberal to label me. Other Christians might not be as strong. Do you see how the media and leaders immediately labeled anyone who disagreed with removing the flag a racist? White Christians with black friends were terrified to speak out and take a stand because they didn’t want their friends to think they were racist.
Social experiments and offline surveys have proved repeatedly that people ages 13-30 will jump on any bandwagon that makes them look cool. If it’s trendy and the majority of the crowd is for it then that’s the route they will take. We are a nation of sheep and it’s only getting worse. I could go into way more detail about how American people are manipulated and deceived but that’s a whole other blog.
This issue has got so bad that Terrorist organizations like ISIS are destroying Christian communities and relics around the world and in the U.S. You may know how they are brutally murdering all Christians they find in Syria and Iraq. It’s been going on for years but the Obama administration has done little to stop it. If he won’t step in to end the intolerance and violence in those countries what makes people think he cares about the more subtle acts taking place here?
Just how bad is the attack of Christianity here in America? Here are some examples how our religious freedom have been stripped from us;
- Here in Florida, we had a Christian ministry that for over 31 years delivered free food to needy families. In 2013, a new state government worker stuck their nose in and told the ministry they would no longer receive USDA food unless they removed pictures of Christ, the 10 commandments, banners that say “Jesus is Lord”, and refrain from handing out Bibles. The government totally violated their religious freedom and discriminated against them.
- The IRS targeted Christian organizations like the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Out of the blue, the IRS said they had reason to review their tax returns and wasted valuable time and money to find out nothing was wrong.
- Two men in California were arrested for just reading their Bible outside a department of motor vehicles office. The judge found the men not guilty of any offenses but the men were humiliated and their time and money wasted. Unbelievable.
- A bakery that refused to make a cake for a gay wedding was recently fined 135,000 for discrimination and humiliated for months by the media for their beliefs.
- Orange county schools in Florida decided they would allow students to bring their Bibles to school for reading material but since they were doing that they had full right to teach the students Satanism. They even went as far as creating work books for the students that taught them how to become Satanist.
- Several men and women in our military have got in big trouble for reading their Bibles or praying. It has made news that one Sergeant was severely punished for just saying he opposed against gay marriage. Look up Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk if you haven’t heard the story.
- The Government now requires churches that do baptisms in lakes or rivers to get a permit 48 hours in advance before any baptisms. Pastors are not allowed to speak out against gay marriage in most places or the church can be shut down for discrimination and hate speech. Most churches have to get a permit to serve food at special services.
- A professor at Florida Atlantic University told all the kids in his class to stomp on the face of Jesus. One boy refused and would have been punished if the media didn’t step in and shine light on the issue. Most disgustingly, the professor did not lose his job for the harassment or the act of discrimination.
- Two students were suspended for praying over their lunch and “offending” other children around them.
- Several schools changed the pledge of Allegiance from “one nation under God” to “one nation under Allah” and threaten to suspend any children that didn’t participate.
These are just some recent examples anyone can look up on Google news. The attack is real people and it’s much worse than you think. Right now, in my county a woman is trying to ban the use of crosses at memorials or graveyards. It’s unbelievable! Christians are forced to be tolerant of everyone else’s beliefs but they do not have to be tolerant of ours. People can mock Jesus, mock God’s word, and say awful things about Christians with no fear of punishment. A christian says one thing a liberal doesn’t like and they are labeled a hater and discriminator.
Why do you think that is? I believe it’s the bitterness, anger, and lack of morality. They have allowed the prince of this world to take over with a vengeance. I am talking about Satan. He has America and the world right where he wants it. One day you will stand before the Lord and look at him face to face. It may be sooner than you think. I am not talking to the unbelievers here; I’m talking to the Christians. Will you look at God knowing you did the best you could and went out fighting for him? How many of us will look at him completely ashamed of ourselves because we sat back quietly as Christianity was destroyed?
2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Love You All,
Note: I will be publishing a blog soon about the different types of Christian beliefs. People from other countries and most Atheist I speak to think that all Christians believe the same way. This is far from true so, I will be breaking down the different beliefs in a new blog.
