A Whole Lot of Mocking Going On!

Do not be deceived, God is not
mocked...(Gal. 6:7)
Indiana is in the news again!  This time for the start of the First Church of Cannabis, a so-called worship center for pot smokers!  Its founder some how wrangled a non-profit status from the powers that be, incor-porating it as a religious entity!  So legally it can be called a church....but we know better don't we?

In a television interview, Bill Levin explains that  the "church's" cornerstone is love and marijuana (pot, weed, Mary Jane, blunt, grass, reefer, etc) will be treated as a Holy sacrament.   The very use of those particular biblical references are tell-tale.

 Ephesians 2:20 describes the Christian church as being built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Jesus, Himself as the Chief Cornerstone.   His precious blood shed on the cross and His broken body is treated with great reverence as sacraments in our communion services.

At some point in their first service (to be held soon) all the congregants will light up in celebration of peace, love and harmony! Now mind you, the use of marijuana both recreationally and medicinally is still illegal.  Humm...Bill, if you're not careful, your second service just might be in the county jail!

This is only the latest of what has become a continuing trend of mocking our Lord and Savior and the Church for which He died!  Really sisters, our Christian values are constantly being belittled, and ridiculed.  So much so that instead of Saints being the Salt and Light in the World, we're becoming the Rodney Dangerfields of the Religious community....getting no respect at all!

It seems as if anything goes any more!  Social and political venues have marginalized the sanctity of marriage...anyone can hook up and call themselves husband and wife.  For more than two thousand years these titles were reserved for a man and woman joined in a vow before God...not a human judge!

The use of God's name in a profane or derogatory manner in media (public television, radio, newspaper) was prohibited...not any more!   Shows like Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, regularly make jokes, satirical and disparaging remarks about Christians and their ratings go up and sponsors flock to them to sell their products!

Music has always been a favorite sandbox for our Enemy to play in! Always riding the fine line of controversy and using emotionally charged lyrics, artists like Madonna who historically mocked the Catholic faith and Miley Cyrus, who called Old Testament stories, fairy tales are quite common.  But the most blatant I think, in recent times, was Kanye West who posed as Jesus, wearing a crown of thorns on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, in 2006 and used a play on his nickname, entitled one of his albums, Yeezus, just about does it for me!

Many may wonder, how long will the Lord allow this to go on?  Surely He is as indignant as you and I!  We must remember, the Mocking Game is nothing new to our Lord!  He's been through this before (Matthew 27:29-31).  He has given all of us free will, we can choose to honor or blaspheme the Holy One, but remember, Do not be deceived...for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap (Gal. 6:7)  GOD ALWAYS HAS THE LAST WORD!
