commentary: Mightier Than The Sword (Part Twenty-Three)
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 28-Nov-15; Sermon #1297c; 13 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, observing that secularism (a belief that morality should be based solely on the collective mores of mankind, and that religion should never enter into state or public education) has effectively eclipsed the influence of nominal Christianity in the western world, asserts that this unsettling state of affairs has been the result of deliberate planning by Satan's human henchmen over the last 600 years, bringing the world full circle to the condition of the world when Nephilim negatively influenced the world's culture. Just as Noah's cultural milieu was saturated by Nephilim, our culture has been saturated with the torrent of words emanating from the pens of Nietzsche in Germany, John Stewart Mill in England, and John Dewey in the United States, all rabid anti-God secularists, believing that mankind's entire life is bound within the present time, with no time devoted to anything beyond death. These influential Nephilim, consisting of presidents, prime ministers, authors, and teachers have purposefully sabotaged and destroyed all vestiges of religious power and influence, replacing it with secular, 'progressive' humanism, setting themselves up as sole arbiters of the proper conduct for mankind, defying the Sovereign God of the Universe.
