Biting the hand that feeds you

Secular humanists are fond of saying that they have a strong set of morals and values. They often say they are good people, better by far than Christians.

Certainly there may be good people who consider themselves secular humanists. But where did their morals and values come from? If they're good morals -- ones that promote life, blessing, and health -- you can be sure they came from the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ.

It was Jesus who set the standard of helping the weak and poor: "For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt." (Deut. 10:17-19)

This kind of thinking isn't the selfishness humans indulge in. Human standards of behavior fit well into the evolutionary mindset, which looks for personal advantage in everything. Ask an evolutionist to explain altruism and charity and he can't. He'll say it originally had some self-benefit, but when the self-benefit no longer exists, it's simply a misfiring of instinct.

Secular humanists believe that helping others without reward or benefit is contrary to the nature of all living beings.

Why, then, do people help each other? The "science" of the day refutes it as unnatural, but religion has the answer: surely it comes from a divine spark that the Lord put in all of us.

Why is America so blessed? The God of our salvation, the God of all creation, Jesus Christ, has his eye on America and his hand outstretched to help his people. Yet you will find the very people benefiting from a law-abiding, charitable-minded society -- such as still can be found in the Christian nation of America -- attacking its foundations.

A dog that bites its master is often seen as mad, because even a dog is smart enough to recognize his provider. But time and again, Americans are now attacking our Master, Jesus Christ, and his people. Some members of our society fail to behave with even the intelligence of a canine. Like frenzied beasts, they partake of the blessings from Jesus Christ while doing their utmost to destroy America as a Christian nation.

It's time Americans wake up and see that if they attack Christianity and the Christians of this land and they are biting the hand that feeds them.


  1. Our founding fathers definitely meant for this nation to be guided by God, not by men. Government only exists to protect people's right to worship God without fear of imprisonment, persecution, or death. Today, though, court injunctions are issued against prayer. That's not the America George Washington led.

  2. I noticed that atheists are fond of saying that all the evils of the world come from religion. Actually, all the evils of the world come from people who are not obeying the Lord God Jesus Christ. You can claim to be religious or irreligious, but if you're walking in your own ways, satisfying your own whims, indulging in a lust for power, or in any other way failing to be meek and humble before Jesus, then you're causing a problem by your DISOBEDIENCE to God.

    In short, it's not religion that's the problem. It's not even a lack of religion. It's a lack of honest, true obedience to the Lord.
