Exod 20:1-6; Then God spoke all these words, saying, 2 "I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
3 "You shall have no other gods before Me. 4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.
5 "You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
False gods and their associated Idolatry is comprised of anything that is promoted above or in opposition to God consciousness, divine establishment, believing in Jesus, or PMA of Bible Doctrine.
2Cor 10:3-5; For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.
5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ...
Matt 25:41;"Then He (Christ) will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;
This next election in our country will be a tipping point because our nation will be making a choice between continuing to serve the Living God that our forefathers fled tyranny in Europe to serve or choose to serve the false gods of the statist, pantheist, hedonist, socialist, fascist, socialist democrats.
Our present study is a study of the doctrine of evil that is the product of believing the false narrative of the public lie that satan, the god of this world, fabricates in opposition to truth and righteousness that are the product of believing the Person and Word of the Living God of the universe.
Last time we noted that evil creates many idols including but not limited to: altruistic humanitarianism, philanthropy, religion, legalism, reversionism, socialism, political internationalism, government interference, distortion of the law, bribery in government, reducing the military, anti gun legislation, sociology, public welfare programs, ecumenism, and the United Nations.
Evil also redefines and creates a an idol of a "brotherhood of man" by distorting the true concept of "brotherly love" into a system of fake acceptance on the basis of relativism and sentimentality.
The whole idea of a central government trying to abolish sickness, injury and death, mental illness, economic problems, frustrations, and human problems by legislation and human solutions is evil. The world's problems can never be solved apart from Bible doctrine and the laws of divine establishment.
Evil also includes social action, the social Gospel, restriction of human freedom for the so called greater good, the distortion of law to into the idol of "social justice" solve social and economic problems such as the interference of government in business and free enterprise, setting restrictive regulations, mandating car requirements, government quotas, antigun legislation, catering to minorities; these are all illegal and distort the proper application of equality before the law and lawful justice.
The greatest of all evil is religion that sponsors idolatry in the forms of legalism, ritualism and apostasy that are the greatest manifestations of evil from the public lie that human good is acceptable to God and salvation is the product of doing good works.
Evil is what arrogant, apostate, reversionistic, self-deceived, self-loathing bleeding-heart, do gooder, liberals think and their evil production is destroying the country.
