The idea of ‘God’ has at minimum four requirements:
i.He must create everything (Omnipotence)
ii.He must have a desire for, or a love for His creation (Love)
iii.He must possess knowledge of good and evil (Omniscience)
iv.He must possess a desire to use His power to care for His creation
In spite of this truth, history is replete with men creating gods. I have found the most common false gods fall into two categories: good and evil--good gods help people, and evil gods hurt people (from a human perspective)! On the other hand, the idea of an ‘anti-god’ is slightly different. The two defining attributes of an ‘anti-god’ are: 1.he is unwillingly chosen; 2.he is raised to deity ‘BECAUSE’ he is hated! I call this phenomenon: ‘Negative Deification’!
As for followers, whereas the authentic God has authentic worshippers, the anti-god has anti-worshippers. While the authentic God’s worshippers love Him; and the anti-god’s worshippers hate him. The authentic God is honored by His worshippers who understand He loves them enough to supply all their needs and desires; the anti-worshippers possess only demands…because they believe the anti-god owes them!
The venom and revenge spewing from the mouths of the anti-worshippers toward the anti-god, is exceeded only by the worship and adoration of the worshippers of the authentic God! Whereas love rivets the attention and affection of the authentic worshippers to the authentic God; the hatred of the anti-worshippers not only rivets their attention to the anti-god*, but lifts him to a position of deity!
While the anti-worshippers vociferously deny deifying the anti-god, their hatred drives them, deceiving them to believe they will not survive without the anti-god responding to their demands. Because the anti-god owns limited authority and wealth--the anti-worshippers believe the anti-god ought to be coerced to “supply all their needs according to his riches in glory!”** While authentic worshippers freely choose the authentic God as their God; indeed, deceived by their hatred, the anti-worshippers unknowingly, unwillingly--but unwittingly--make the anti-god…their god!
In a nutshell, anti-worshipper’s attributes of deification are:
i.a desire to possess the anti-god’s authority/power/wealth
ii.anger and hatred for the anti-god (unforgiveness).
iii.unlimited grievances of past actual and perceived ‘anti-god’
iv.demands of remuneration from the anti-god (theft & love of
Here is my point: contemporary liberalism commits ‘Negative Deification’ of white people! In other words, liberals, both white and black, create anti-gods of ‘white people’!
Let’s return to the anti-worshipper’s attributes to examine my contention!
1.Envy. Can one honestly consider the state of contemporary American politics and not see the obvious envy of liberalism?!?! The lust for power by liberals is daily news across America! For example, a year and a half after the elections—Hillary Clinton recently travelled to India to inform them why she lost the election!
2.Anger and hatred. How about Antifa?! However, to the discerning, Antifa is a prophetic image of the end of liberalism.
Or, how about the violence on college campuses against certain types of speakers? Need we ask the obvious question, “who are the perpetrators of this violence?” If you answered, “Liberals!!” You get an A+!!!
3.Grievances of past ‘anti-god’ injustice. Who is paving the way for the hatred of America? Who dominates the professorship of American college campuses, where America is daily attacked and belittled? The most recent incident is Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar, who tweeted, "Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal." "I'm happy the witch is dead. can't wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million iraqis did." Furthermore, last year another Fresno State professor tweeted, "To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and higher the better." Do you think these professors are a just wee-bit angry with America? In all honesty, do you believe the mindset of these two university professors is unique? I mean, do you think American professors training American students actually believe in American Exceptionalism? Think again!!
Finally, under which group shall we categorize Tim Wise, and his ‘White Privilege’; or Dr Joy Degruy’s, and her Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome?
If you haven’t already figured it out—all of the above represents liberalism!
4.Demands of remuneration from the anti-god. Beginning with Affirmative Action; and reparations(Tehesi Coates), the evidence for this point spirals all the way down to its logical conclusion--the wisdom of Black Lives Matter, Louisville co-founder Chanelle Helm, who declares when White people down-size their home, they should give the old one to Black or Brown people!
Beloved…this is called the ‘Negative Deification’ of the white man!
To incessantly accuse white people of white privilege; white supremacy; black slavery; white majority; white oppression; implicit bias; police targeting blacks etc., etc., etc., both creates and inspires hatred and revenge. Tragically, to resolve these issues…liberals simply scream the white man must pay!
Furthermore, by changing the definition of words and adding ‘whiteness’ to the accusation of ‘white privilege’, now means because whites cannot change their ‘whiteness’, they are permanently the oppressor, who must forever pay the oppressed!
This ‘Tom-foolery’ exalts whites to an anti-god who is necessary to supply the needs of the “people of color”…who are his victims, his anti-worshippers! Plain and simple…this is idolatry!
Beloved…only the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…is God! All else are idols (Ps96:5)! I choose the One, Who has already given us the victory! “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1Cor15:58)! How about you?
*One of the consequences of hatred, is the hated consumes the thinking of the hater.
**if you’re unaware, Philippines 4:19 uses this phraseology to refer to what God does for His people. In other words, only God does this!
***Three quick examples: “Kill Whitey” -Michael Moore; Trinity College’s Johnny Eric Williams-“Let them f****ng die!”; “A day without White people” Washington State College.
