Revolution & Theology

It was the French Revolution that brought us the modern notion of the “left” and the “right.” The Jacobins (Montagnards) sat on the left of the Speaker in the Assembly while the Girondins sat center left and those who supported Louis XVI (Constitutional Monarchists) sat on the right in the National Assembly.This is not without significance. The reason that “left” and “right” became designations is because the Left was making a statement. They knew that Christianity taught that those on the right hand of God were the saved while those on the left hand were damned. The seating arrangement reflected their attempt to overthrow God from His throne.This mindset is underscored by the maxim of the left. They freely chanted, “No God, No King,” and took for a motto that “We will not be satisfied until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.”The French Revolution, like all revolutions, is ultimately man’s attack on God. The one we are living through right now is the same. Unless we put these God haters down they will do to us just what revolutionaries have always done to God’s people in revolution. For example, in the Bolshevik Revolution Christian church buildings were turned into animal stables, slaughter houses, and dance halls. In addition some 200,000 (Christian) clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union. Also 40,000 churches (were) destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980.

What is going on in Kenosha, Portland, Seattle, New York, and other major American cities is only a political revolution after it is a theological and religious revolution.

It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture. Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.
