Before I begin, I hope all of you had a fantastic, blessed and very merry Christmas yesterday.
Now, on to the topic at hand. To a largely Christian audience, that title seems pretty obvious. For as long as people have created gods, ignoring the God that created them, people have come to worship and idolize things that were not God Himself.
You have things like statues of various deities in different cultures throughout history like the Greek gods or the Roman gods, etc. Even today, we see this sort of thing. But ironically (though not exactly unexpectedly), we also see this happening in people who claim to be atheistic. People who claim to not believe in God and certainly do not follow His teachings or His Word.
Enter Michael Moore, who recently adorned his Christmas tree not with an angel or a star symbolizing the one over Bethlehem highlighting Christ’s birth, but with a Christmas decoration version of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
I kid you not, the guy has gone full idolatry here.
Now, I’m not exactly surprised by this sort of thing at any capacity. The Left, for as much as they claim to be atheistic, also worship things. The Clintons worship money; George Soros worships power (and himself, most likely); the media worships Obama, you get the point.
So I’m not surprised to see Moore basically idolizing RBG here. In the tweet he sent out to show his idolatry, he also wrote: “My Christmas Tree Topper this year. Better than an angel or the star over Bethlehem. A nation of millions stand with you…”
Again, not surprised by his idolatry here. The guy worships anyone or anything that he feels has some sort of ability to stop Trump and he figures RBG symbolizes that. Maybe because she’s the oldest member of the Supreme Court, is insanely Leftist and is also really fragile, so she is the one people think Trump could replace given the shot.
RBG has said that she plans to be in the Supreme Court for as long as possible, so she likely won’t retire, but that’s only her plans.
That being said, I don’t wish anything malicious upon her. Matter of fact, I think she should thank God. Remember when she fell and broke some ribs a few months ago (and the Left went haywire offering their own ribs as replacements because they are that fanatical and lunatic)? Well, thanks to that, doctors found two malignant tumors in her lungs and were able to remove them recently.
I may not like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but I recognize that her breaking a couple of ribs was essentially a miracle and a blessing in disguise for her. Had that not happened, the tumors might’ve made things worse for her.
But even in this entire thing, it’s essential to recognize something: people are temporary. So Michael Moore in idolizing RBG in this way is not only committing a sin, but he’s also relying on something that is entirely temporary.
RBG is 85 years old and she’s not exactly getting younger. She’s also not exactly getting all that much healthier. She could live for a while, but she will eventually die.
Those who idolize her will eventually find her to be dead. Same as those who idolize Mohammed, or who idolize Buddha, etc. Yes, Mohammed is already dead, as is Buddha, but the point remains. People basically idolize them.
And they are dead. Eventually, RBG will meet that fate just as every other human who has ever walked this Earth.
Mohammed is dead. Buddha is dead. George Soros will die (I imagine people idolize him too). RBG will die. But Jesus is alive. He is the only being in the history of the world that has lived, died, and risen from the dead to once again walk among the living before ascending into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father.
When RBG dies, people like Michael Moore will lose even more of their marbles. Same when George Soros dies. They will have to keep finding new idols; new people to worship and rely on.
But people always die in the end. Jesus – God – is the only one who has dominion over death itself.
Even atheists worship something. As I said, the Clintons worship money and others worship other things. I mostly talked about Moore worshipping RBG, and the same things could be said about the media worshipping Obama since he’s also merely human. But another thing that atheists worship is science (as long as science is separated from God and it says whatever they want it to say).
These atheists will claim some sort of superiority because they study (or worship, really) science. If science says that we evolved from monkeys (and it only suggests it in theory, but does not outright prove it. Scientists are the ones who believe this pretty religiously), then that’s settled. Ironically, if science says that there are only two genders or that there’s nothing humans can do/are doing that could cause global climate change, they will ignore that.
But regardless, they will worship science if it says what they want it to say.
Everyone worships something. The problem with worshipping anything other than God, apart from the basic fact that that’s a sin that is covered in the very first commandment, is that everything else is temporary.
Buddha was temporary, but while Buddhism is still around, it is also temporary. Mohammed was temporary, but while his teachings are still around in the form of Islam, Islam is also temporary. RBG is temporary, as is Obama, as is George Soros. Just like them, their ideology (Leftism/socialism etc.) is also temporary.
And while science has been around for ages, like everything else in this world, it’s also temporary.
Once everything is over and the end of times has arrived, those things’ days will be numbered. But God is eternal.
He is the beginning and the end. The Alpha and the Omega. He created RBG, Michael Moore, Barack Obama, George Soros, Donald Trump, you, me, the media, the U.S., the world and the entire universe, both known and unknown.
I worship God because He is the Lord. The only One who can save me from my sins and what my sins would lead me to. I don’t rely on Donald Trump for anything other than him trying to fight to Make America Great Again. But I don’t idolize him at all. Yes, I’ve talked a lot about him because I fervently support him and will continue to support him, but I would disgust myself if I were to think of him being anywhere close to the level of God.
I don’t worship Trump primarily because he’s not my savior and because he's human, thus temporary (and I hope no one actually worships him in any way). He can’t save me from anything. But God already has. All I need to do is worship Him obediently and follow Him.
There is nothing RBG can do for Michael Moore. Nothing Obama can do for the media. Nothing Trump can do for you and me. Ultimately, it is God that allows these people to do anything at all.
It is God whom I rely upon. It is God whom I worship. And it is God who is eternal. No one else; nothing else.
