A lot of people don’t believe that evil exists in the world; they believe that human beings are the evil and that the evil comes from inside of us, or “internally-speaking.” I don’t think that this is true. Why?
I have observed evil incarnate in various forms.
I believe that evil has a face, a name, and is an actual “entity.” I choose to refer to this entity as “Satan.” Some Christians call him ‘the devil,’ ‘Lucifer,’ ‘the father of lies,’ ‘god of this world,’and he goes by many other names as well.
The point of the matter is that he is tangible, real, and hates Jesus Christ, God, and the Christian. When I say “hate,” I do mean HATE. Sometimes the hate is obvious and other times it’s more subtle. I’ve done a few other posts on how dangerous and hate-infested Satan can be, but when he’s basically been given free rein within someone, he can be positively terrifying within that person.
I saw proof of this as I watched videos of what is put out by the band known as “Rammstein.”
Here is more proof.
The hate speech I’m linking to below is part of the public domain. This is someone’s personal blog on the internet at a dating site. The hatred within it is tangible, real, and clear. I’m bowled over by it. I’m astonished that a blog that persecutes the religious is allowed and even encouraged on a site where people are attempting to date others. Is this not surreal? Well, it’s real, people. And it’s happening daily across the internet all over dating and social networking sites just like the one I’ve linked to.
It doesn’t matter where I found this offensive material or who wrote it. Suffice it to say that this is just one example I am sharing with you in order to expose what Christians are enduring across the internet these days. I was regularly exposed to these kind of writings daily at this internet locale I used to blog at. I occasionally stop back by and review the latest there out of curiosity. Recently, a friend of mine at this same site pointed this blog out to me; I thought I would share it with you. I was a member at the site for over three years before finally leaving for good. I think you’ll understand my departure as you read.
Initially my first response to this individual’s writings is to rage back. I want to pummel and offend in turn with my own words, but that’s Satan’s way, isn’t it? He gets off on rage, anger, hatred, pain, and instigating discord. So I realize that all I can do for this sad little person is offer love and prayer, and truly analyze my desire to rage with anger in return and see it for what it is. I think this kind of hatred scares me on some level and I want to crush it.
Jesus loves in a way that I don’t fully know how to do yet when I’m confronted with evil like this. When Satan is knocking at the door and raging in the attempt at getting one’s attention, what should our reaction be as Christians? What would your reaction be? What can be done for this person and what has overtaken him?
Due to copyright issues, I can now only link the reader to the offending material. This is an important writing to view as an example of consistent, continuous, ongoing persecution of the religious. You are welcome to view this writing at the following link:
I must warn you that it is very graphic, threatening, and contains a lot of profanity.
This particular example of religious persecution is published at the following internet locale: http://tinyurl.com/yk8v8j2
You will not be able to view the material any longer as the moderator of that dating site has deleted it. This move in and of itself speaks volumes and I consider it favorable that at least one threatening, hateful post on this man’s blog was taken down.
Exposing and confronting a bully is the answer to dealing with the bullying. Sitting back and taking it changes nothing; it only encourages and enables the bully to continue.
Needless to say there is ongoing religious persecution occurring at that site on many people’s blogs on a regular basis. Outspoken Christians are removed from the site; before they are removed, they are harassed by many in the membership. I will continue to keep you updated should the religious persecution of our Christian brothers and sisters for their faith continue there.
