I'll do it my way!


by Guy C. LaMar



Everyone has their own feelings towards things - and that's a fact. But when you base your life on what the living word of God - the Holy Bible - says on a matter then you are automatically going to be hated by the world.

The world that we live in is dictated by Satan the devil - so says God's living word - cf. 2 Corinthians 4:4. And the influence of the devil is upon our peoples more than ever before.

Pagan customs 1 - which truly honors customs to Satan the devil are at an all-time high.

Truly, the liberal agenda represents Satan the devil. Take away completely the Constitution of the United States and see just how immoral and satanic the modern Democratic Party can get! 2 Clearly, the Democratic Party works for Satan the devil. 

The culture of today has become so vile it's becoming more and more difficult to find truly decent people anymore. This generation (called Generation Alpha) reeks of a very evil raising.

Consider this -

The generation born of the Silent Generation (generally defined as people born from 1928 to 1945) had parents (at least the greater majority) who viewed divorce as shameful. Then came the Baby Boomers (the generation generally defined as people born from 1946 to 1964), the generation of the counterculture - described variously as the "shockwave," or as "the pig in the python." 3 The rebellious generation. Truly, their parents wanted the very best things for them, more than they ever had - them coming from the Great Depression era. So, the greater majority of these children grew up with good morals - yet a bit spoiled. Resulting in rebellion.

Then, those children grew up to have children - called Generation X. And this is where the greatest divorce rate of a generation ever came on the scene! 4 Sadly, this generation (for the most part) is a group of rebellious, selfish, self-serving, spoiled, narcissistic people - more so than any past generation.

Result!?

They (for the most part) produced some very messed-up children!

Well, those children got married, had children (known as Generation Y, or Millennials) - and then divorced. The statistics show these things by a majority factor. You're more than welcome to search this out with your favorite search engine online if you'd like. It's a fact. This has nothing to do with any particular individual. But it does have to do with the greater majority of our people in an era of time.

There have been fads that have come and gone - and some have stayed.

Such as men wearing earrings and adapting female traits. 5 Almighty God's living word says that is an abomination unto Him!

The Generation Of Acceptance - Generation Z - has come about, and out!

They are your modern-day Sodomites. 6 Women desiring to be as men and men desiring to be as women!

We are living in a vile and sick age - what the apostle Paul calls "this present evil age" (Galatians 1:4)! And the evil U.S. government is standing by it.

The LORD our God warns us -
"'Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!'" - Isaiah 5:20, NKJV.
Also, the apostle Paul warns -
"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2) For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3) unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4) traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5) having a form of godliness but denying its power!" - 2 Timothy 3:1-5, NKJV.
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, ..." - 2 Timothy 4:3, NKJV.

Also, friends, there has been a rise in tattoos. 7 Pagan customs are growing in popularity as ever before! The origins of tattooing came from ancient magical practices. Many ancient tribes practiced therapeutic tattooings - such as Ötzi, the Iceman, who lived between 3400 and 3100 B.C. who had a total of 61 tattoos, many in the same locations for pain relief treatments. Also, tattooing was regarded as a religious ceremony, performed by priests or priestesses. Songs and dances were accompanied by tattooing to exorcise demons. 8

It is a type of vanity to make a statement. It is a mental illness of today's society. Which truly means Satan the devil's influence in the mindset of our peoples. It is a case of smearing one's ignorance on their skin for all the view.

God's living word - which is not "outdated" as a source stated on the very liberally minded Wikipedia - commands His people -
"'You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I AM the LORD'" - Leviticus 19:28, NKJV.
Of course, this New Wave generation desires to use their own reasonings to reason away the LORD God's commands.

Mental illness in America is rampant! Nearly one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness (51.5 million in 2019), with a population of 328.24 million (2019)! 9 

Country conservatives - with traditional moral (biblical) values - are being invaded by liberally broad-minded people!!

There is a reason why our Lord Jesus Christ says, "'Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man'" - Luke 21:36, NKJV. These 'things' - of which many are indeed evil - are on the rise! And they are now in our very backyard!

Our Lord Jesus Christ says -
"'But seek ye FIRST the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; ...'" - Matthew 6:33, KJV.

And, SEEKING THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS is the very will of God!

No one on this planet can call themselves a Christian while being part of, or supporting, the modern Democratic Party! - cf. Romans 1:18-32.

Our Lord Jesus Christ says -

"'No one can serve two masters; ... You cannot serve God and mammon [wealth, regarded as false worship].'" - Matthew 6:24, NKJV.

The apostle Paul added - under the divine inspiration of God's Spirit -

"Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!" - 1 Corinthians 6:15, NKJV.

"And what accord has Christ with Belial [Satan the devil]? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?" - 2 Corinthians 6:15, NKJV.

So then, ANYONE that identifies themselves as a modern democrat - a modern-day liberal - is supporting Satan the devil and his minions! They are supporting the devil's bidding.

Friends, we may have loved ones who have adopted and continues to support paganism and its customs. We cannot help that. It is not on us. Before we came to the gift of repentance, of baptism and having hands laid upon us, and receiving the gift of God's Spirit - we were also like them. But, as the apostle Paul tells us -

" ... you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God" - 1 Corinthians 6:11, NKJV.

Therefore, as a mighty angel of the Eternal our God warns us -

" ... 'Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5) For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities'" - Revelation 18:4, 5, NKJV.

We may sin, but we must dust ourselves off and get back on track!

If anyone is offended by this bold TRUTH, I will not apologize. I, like the apostle Stephen, speak only in defense of God's religion (James 1:27) and in His appointed Way! (cf. Psalm 37:5-6; 119:1). 

For like the apostle Paul stated unequivocally to his detractors -

"But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect [or a cult], so I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets [the Old Testament]. 15) I have hope in God, which they themselves [as well as many do who identifies themselves as modern liberals] also accept, that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust. 16) This being so, I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men" - Acts 24:14-16, NKJV.

My job is to share God's TRUTH. □
