America: The Last Best Hope of the World?

If one were a servant of Antichrist, perhaps this would be true.  For wherever one looks, whether within its borders or outside them, one finds abominations (there are still some exceptions to this among the various States, but they seem to be diminishing) - rising violence and callousness towards others, abnormal sexual practices, drug use, child killing and abuse, greed, and so on.  Yet in the midst of all this, the pride of Americans in their own supposed righteousness grows ever greater. 

Especially is this antichristian spirit manifested where the American Empire has launched its wars since the ‘War on Terror’ began in 2001.  That war would be better called a War OF Terror against Christians, a point well made by Michael Snyder in this report (bolding in original):

When the U.S. military “liberates” a nation, shouldn’t it result in more liberty, freedom and peace for the people living there?  Instead, we find just the opposite.  In fact, in every single case since 9/11, when the U.S. military has “liberated” a nation it has resulted in the persecution of Christians in that country becoming much worse.

In areas where we spent hundreds of billions of dollars and where thousands of precious American lives were sacrificed, churches are regularly being bombed, Christians are being brutally beheaded, and laws have been passed to make it illegal for a Muslim to convert to Christianity.  If we were not even able to provide the most basic of liberties and freedoms to the people living in those nations, what in the world did we actually accomplish by “liberating” them?

Just look at what has happened in Afghanistan.  We have been at war in Afghanistan for more than a dozen years, and yet things are so bad for Christians in that country at this point that there is not a single church left

The supposedly “moderate” Karzai government installed by the U.S. upholds many of the draconian laws enforced by the Taliban—including the apostasy law, fiercely persecuting those who seek to convert to Christianity—and, in 2011, under U.S. auspices, it destroyed Afghanistan’s last Christian church.

We find a similar story in Iraq.  It is estimated that before the invasion, there were up to 2 million Christians living in Iraq.  Now that number is down to less than 450,000, and it is falling fast.

 . . .

Let there be no doubt:  The secular Puritan messiah nation of America is carrying out the will not of God but of His enemy the devil in this persecution of Christ’s very own holy, divine-human Body, His Church, (a re-crucifixion of Christ, as Father Andrew Phillips has put it) from Libya to Serbia to Syria to Afghanistan (and one may rightly expect similar things to begin happening in the Ukraine if someone doesn’t restrain the E.U.-u.S. influence there). 

If anyone in this country desires to do good, let him seek a peaceful way to weaken this power of the American federal government to harm others overseas.  Has the time come for the breakup of what has become another brutal, godless (Soviet) Union?
