There are several trains of thought running throughout the social media world these days. Each camp is accusing others of having, what I’ll refer to as, an unholy agenda. What I mean by that is an agenda or some sort of diabolical plot to force the masses into a certain way of thinking. A particular way of believing and acting.
There are the folks on the right who are convinced that everything happening is designed to affect the upcoming election so the liberals win. Of course, the folks on the left are touting the same thing. Still others are buying any and all conspiracy theories about the major unseen players who are pulling the strings that control every nation on the planet. I’ve noticed something. The wilder, the more unbelievable the theory, the quicker people are to grab hold of it and blab it to the four winds.
And again, there are some people mixing ideologies from the right and the left, creating a myriad of ”hybrid” groups; each with their own particular agenda.
I’d like to address the unholy agenda issue by saying each group is correct. The others do have an unholy agenda, and they are extremely focused and disciplined in seeing their agenda come to fruition.
But guess what?
There are really only two camps, two groups, two agendas. Only two.
All those I’ve mentioned belong to one group. Their goal is to have their own way. To make a world that’s governed according to their personal beliefs. After all, their beliefs are the correct beliefs. Just ask them.
Whether they are right, left, or middle; all are right in their own eyes.
And they each have an agenda.
Remember the conspiracy group? The one’s who believe there are string-pullers behind the scenes? Well, they’re probably more accurate than the other groups.
Because there is someone with THE unholy agenda who only wants to steal, kill, and destroy. He’s after control, and ultimately to be worshipped as god. He’s been working his plan since before the garden of Eden and is very much focused on seeing it come to pass.
And he’s using all these agendas as a diversion; to keep those who belong to the Most High God, Who alone has mankind’s best interest in mind, out of the way of righteous and holy warfare.
Many of God’s people seem to have chosen a political side and damn the others. Or maybe another, more accurate way to say it is ”to hell with the others who aren’t in my camp.”
It’s so very sad, but I believe it’s the truth.
People of God, it’s past time to shake ourselves free from every unholy agenda; every unholy alliance. God has called us to choose His ways and thoughts. He’s told us to seek FIRST the Kingdom of God. He’s demonstrated how He expects us to love the world.
To focus on His holy agenda will require us to lay down our rights and the opinions that keep us from engaging in His business of worldwide evangelism and discipleship.
We cannot free the one’s trapped in darkness if we don’t walk in the light. And we can’t walk in the light if we won’t walk in love.
There’s coming a day when all we’re experiencing will be history. Eternity will have arrived. There will only be two camps remaining.
The righteous and the damned.
I’ve heard it said that this coming election is the most important one in the history of our nation. Maybe so.
But there’s something far more important than an election. It’s the condition of our world’s souls.
Can’t we set aside our fussing and fighting about our ”rights” and instead pick up God’s Holy Agenda?
”To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Thessalonians 1:11 – 1:12 ESV)
