Satan is having his way with so very many…….many are blinded by Satan, they walk with such darkness.
On July 9, an activist art collective called Indecline draped a banner saying, “GOD BLESS ABORTIONS,” over a giant statue of Jesus in Eureka Springs, Ark. The collective said its reason for hanging the banner over the seven-story Christ of the Ozarks statue was to protest restrictions the state of Arkansas is imposing on abortion.
“The project, entitled ‘God Bless Abortions,’ is in direct response to the dramatic attempts being made in Arkansas and throughout the South, to ban abortion services to women in need,” said Indecline in a statement.

From Dr. Jim Denison this morning:
The malignant denial of truth
Yesterday we discussed the assault on truth and biblical truth going on in our culture today. It has become conventional wisdom in our postmodern culture that all truth is personal and subjective.
This claim that there are no absolute truths is itself an absolute truth claim, of course. And it fails not just logically but practically—if all truth is subjective, how is the rule of law to be enforced? What makes one ideology (such as radical jihadism) wrong and another right?
Nonetheless, this malignant denial of objective truth is metastasizing through the body of our society. It renders the Bible a diary of religious experiences that Christians have no right to “force” on others. It makes life from conception to death whatever we determine it to be, fueling the drive for elective abortion and euthanasia. It makes sexuality whatever we determine it to be, fueling the drive for LGBTQ acceptance and celebration. And it makes evangelism the intolerant “imposition” of our values on others.
If I were Satan, I would follow precisely this strategy in separating American culture from the biblical worldview upon which our nation was founded and the biblical morality that is essential to our flourishing.

|From the writings of the Rev. Billy GrahamQ: There is a lot said about people of faith, yet I have many friends who say they have faith but they cannot identify “faith in what or in whom.” Some say it is just believing that there is a greater power than mankind. What is the truth? — P.F.
A: Having faith in God the Creator of the world is not simply education or experience. The Bible begins with the simple words: “In the beginning God…. “ These four words are the cornerstone of all existence and of all human history. God is not just “a power.” He is the source of all things. He is the beginning and the end.
Without God, there could have been no beginning and no continuing. God indeed was the creating power. By divine fiat, He brought form out of shapelessness, order out of disorder, and light out of darkness.
God cannot be rationalized — to try is to fail. There are mysteries about God that we will never understand in this life. We should not think it strange that it is impossible to comprehend God intellectually, when it is equally impossible to explain many mysteries in the realm of matter. Who can fathom the law of gravity? Newton discovered it, but he could not explain it.
There are many arguments we could marshal to give evidence of the existence of God. We see objects that have no intellect, such as stars and planets, moving in a consistent pattern, cooperating with one another. Hence, it is evident that they achieve their movements not by accident, but by design. If God can be fully proved by the human mind, then He is no greater than the mind that proves Him. Cry out to God, “Lord… help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24). There is only one God, and He wants everyone to come to Him and be saved.
