“In the devil’s theology, the important thing is to be absolutely right and to prove that everybody else is absolutely wrong.”
— Thomas Merton (1915-1968)
Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk, author, social activist, mystic, theologian, and scholar of comparative religion. His observations on the evil we see everywhere in our secular humanist society today are captured in his quote. The devil offers the evil opposite to God’s laws and truth. We see many forcefully pushing for acceptance of moral behavior which God has clearly warned is sin. God’s laws are social justice, but not the social justice movement which leads to evil which is detrimental to society.
This evil pushes for laws to force people into violating God’s law such as paying for abortion, or under penalty of law controlling speech, or to punish those who would call out sin. Under totalitarian governments and regimes through fear, and possibly death they force compliance with evil against God’s laws.
It has been said society is truly fallen when people can no longer be allowed to call out sinful behavior. If we wish to be a righteous people and maintain our liberty and principles of free government we need to call out the devil’s theology in all aspects of society. Which of course means this starts with ourselves first. Most people know something is wrong, very wrong in society but can identify the cause. It’s the devil’s theology pushed by the Left and secular humanists it is absolutely wrong and is destroying lives and society. Because it destroys everything that it touches.
