In the NY Times, it is expected there will be a voice for the morally and religiously deranged. It appears those operating the helm at the “paper of record” are sympathetic to such ways of thinking.
Is God to blame for the failures of man? Not a chance! Man is the blame for all his failures, including the failures belonging to Shalom Auslander. Because of his failures and those all around him, he proposes we give up God. It’s evident that he has, including those of the like-minded NY Times, and the political party now in control of both houses of Congress / White House.
God is not the problem and never has been. It is always in man who follow the dictates of his own evil heart. With sentiments like this, there is no peace for those who have put hope in something other than the Almighty.
Is the idea of “killing god” a solution, as Shalom thinks it is? Live in one of the cities where killing innocent children is already in vogue, live in one of the cities where they are confused about what a “woman” is, how it is to be defined, live in a city where the LGBTQ community runs rampant, live in a city where murder is the norm and victims are the problem, then be sure to tell us how man is the solution!
Yes, the problem is man and his ideology, an ideology that is as vile as the source from which it comes.
You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44, ESV).
