When #God created the world, the #Bible says He saw it was “very good.” A natural order had been established. But mankind fell to sin and death, and that order was destroyed.
Still, throughout human history, mankind possessed some inherent sense of what the world should be like. Religion, morality and law were ways to restrain the depraved impulses of mankind. And in the #Christian West, there was general agreement about how society should run.
But that consensus has been shattered.
#Christianity is being driven from public life. #Homosexuality, #transsexuality and other “identities” and sexual activities that were once considered perverse are now regarded by elites as core to Western civilization.
Among the younger generation, more evangelicals are accepting of same-sex marriage. And the only time liberals seem willing to side against sexual degeneracy is when it means aiding the cause of the Muslims who are colonizing the West in ever-growing numbers.
To traditionally minded Christians, it may seem like the world has gone insane. Now, one of #TheVatican’s intellectual leaders, Cardinal Carlo Caffarra, has declared #Satan launched the “ultimate and terrible challenge” in a form of an “anti-creation” being constructed around the world.
In an address to the Rome Life Forum, Cardinal Caffarra identified Satan with the drive to deny the truth within the heart of man. He specifically said two innovations are core to this “anti-creation” – abortion and homosexuality.
The cardinal condemned “the transformation of a crime into a right” when it comes to abortion. “This signifies calling what is good, evil, what is light, shadow,” he said.
Caffarra declared abortion signifies the “profoundest negation of the truth of man.” Secondly, Caffarra argued the “ennoblement of homosexuality” has the effect of denying “entirely the truth of marriage.” “In the mind of God, marriage has a permanent structure, based on the duality of the human mode of being: femininity and masculinity,” the cardinal explained. “Not two opposite poles, but the one with and for the other. Only thus does man escape his original solitude.” 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾
