Exposing the Secular Left’s Subterfuge of America

Christians, are you listening to what is being publicly said today in America? We have one political ideology that has literally gone to the netherworld.  Christians and people of character should be personally aghast that people in political authority and their pundits, along with left wing national news disrespect not only the office of the presidency, but every decent honorable concept of righteousness that has made America great. It is now Christians who need to ask themselves, do we expose this darkness? It is true, Christians are tasked to shine the light of Christ into darkness (2 Cor. 4:6). Ephesians 5:11 goes so far as to instruct us to “…have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”

When the actions of the secular left’s subterfuge of America are exposed their true motives become self-evident. Their actions verify they live in the dominion of the lower nature. Paul reveals in Romans 8:5 that “Those who let themselves be controlled by their lower natures live only to please themselves,” vs. “Those who follow after the Holy Spirit find themselves doing those things that please God.”

The fruit of the lower nature produced by the secular left is named treachery, but strangely, through their deceptive words they harvest many followers who believe their misguided political aims. (2 Peter 2:2-3) Vladimir Lenin called these followers, useful idiots. He was quoted as saying: “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” … “The goal of socialism is communism,” and “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”

Secular political progressives are wearing Lenin’s ideology around their necks, supporting every evil element. The proof? Every national progressive political candidate, liberal pundit, or liberal news outlet today is following Lenin’s “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” Their constantly repeated lies have become their main sales technique and it is done on every social media platform and liberal news outlet in America.

Make no mistake, their subterfuge of America is cleverly concealed and organized in order to hide their true intentions. They are doing this by being the windshield wiper of lies, as they swing right claiming to be for equality and goodness by wiping hate and violence from society, then, as they swing left, they fund front groups like Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, and Antifa. Antifa, as an example, claims to be anti-fascist, but they themselves act like Hitler’s Brown Shirts. Antifa, like the others, are organized to commit violent demonstrations against the ideals of America’s Constitutional Republic. This is the progressive pestilence of duplicity (Revelation 22:15), their main strategy.

Another duplicity of the progressive strategy is to create falsehoods about America’s Founders, and support destroying the symbols and statues of America’s history, while at the same time besmirching the reasons America’s Republic has created tremendous liberty and happiness for its citizens. They lie saying America was built on slavery, forgetting we fought a civil war to stop it, and fraudulently claim America discriminates against minorities when in fact, America has the least amount of discrimination in the world.  These tactics show over and over their scheme is to lie, blame, and accuse.

They use made up excuses to dishonor and slander anyone, from Supreme Court Judges to cake makers, and organizations like the American Family Association who do not adhere to or condone the secular progressive Holy Grail.  This is the killing of the unborn and their support for the Sodom and Gomorrah lifestyle.  Then, after they harass and bully, they powerfully try to destroy the person’s or organization’s livelihood. These replace God’s benevolence with malice and wickedness (1 Cor. 5:8) demonstrating there is no truth in them, for when they lie, they speak from their own character (John 8:44).

One may ask, why is the political elite turning against America? Could it be because a large percentage of their political ideals are birthed within the privileged bubble taught within liberal colleges? Then, consider many political elites because of their wealth separate themselves from the rest of society in the fishbowl of opulence where they dwell apart from ordinary Americans’ reality. Human-created reality is where there is no God, and no absolute Truth. Without God’s reality, humans gravitate to the acts of our sinful nature (Gal. 5:19-21) of which selfish-ambition, sexual immorality, and division become the norm (2 Cor. 12:20-21). Once humans bow to their sinful nature, history shows they seek more power and control over others to their own unrighteous end because socialism, as Lenin said, gravities to communism--which leads to anarchy.

This brings to mind Satan’s method of destruction. Satan thought he was superior to God, and took on the semblance of an angle of light as he talked Eve to death. His lies were the first political spin, birthed from his arrogance, mixing truth and lies, while conning the victim to perpetuate evil. Political seculars try to paint themselves as superior, but many sound more like braying donkeys, as their rhetoric advocates the overthrow of every God given right that has made America great.

Remarkably, the secular left themselves are exposing their malicious intent. Socialist U.S. Representatives are taking their ideological masks off, and exposing their true agenda on national news. Listening with abductive reasoning reveals their ulterior motives. They want more welfare giving them control of the poor; more class warfare to divide America into racial and economic groups (weakening her with disunity), and more debt to encourage America’s financial collapse. They sponsor open borders to enable America to be colonized with poor, uneducated illegal immigrants (over burdening state and local communities), in order to bring in millions of voters keen on socialist programs. They seek to take away America’s Bill of Rights, specifically Freedom of Religion and Speech, to prevent the truth from publicly condemning their socialist and sexually decadent agenda. They are attempting to destroy the right to bear arms under the guise of protecting citizens (which it will not accomplish), but which instead will make America internally defenseless. Their goal is to overthrow our American government by transforming our Republic into a socialist state, and for this, guns need to be out of the hands of citizens.

So how do we Christians help stop the subterfuge of America? God’s reality tells us only one process stops evil, and that is righteousness. The adversary’s main strategy is using the lie, evil, to perpetuate unrighteousness. Paul told us how to fight evil. Put on the full Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-19) so we may open our mouths boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel. Every Christian must shout the truth of God from the housetops (Matthew 10:27) to expose evil (Ephesians 5:11) and make peace through righteousness (James 3:18). Christ arms His disciples with the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit of Truth, that will testify of Christ and guide us, and even tell us what is to come. Christ said the Holy Spirit, “…will testify of Me” and “convict the world of sin,” (John 15:26-27 &16:8-13).  The Spirit then makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God (Romans 8:27). This is a powerful gift from God that empowers all of Christ’s Disciples to be His ministers of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18). Reconciliation brings commitment in faith to God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit that births internal morality, and ultimately external liberty, the same liberty that has produced the basis for the existence of America. 

Therefore, every Christian is charged with boldly proclaiming the Word of God into the darkness of liberal progressivism. We do this by publicly supporting every biblical truth that applies to life, whether spiritual or temporal, whether related to eternal life with Christ or to topics such as taxation, education, tyranny, politics, military, or any other issue touched on in the Bible. This includes being a good steward of our American citizenship and encouraging the body of Christ to speak through editorials, social media, etc. to express the truth of God in as many ways as possible. Best of all, we cannot fail to speak through our vote; voting for issues and people who have a Christ world view.

Then, Christians, we are to humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift us up. Pray that the Lord of the harvest will send out laborers into His harvest. Then, seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Then turn from useless things to the living God, so God will hear from heaven, and forgive our sin and heal our land (2 Chronicles 7:14 paraphrased). Finally, Oh Lord “…Protect me from their evil scheming, from all their demonic subterfuge,” (Psalm 141:9 MSG).
