So-called ‘Peaceful Protesters’ Burned Bibles in Portland

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds
(Psalms 14:1)

In the riots in Portland, Oregon antifa rioters set a bonfire in front of the federal courthouse but they stepped to a new low. They decided to burn Bibles. I kid you not! They threw copies of the Bible in the fire. Does this surprise me? No, because I know they are not God-fearing people. Otherwise, they would not be hurting innocent people, destroying public and private property and carrying on in so many lawless ways. They have become emboldened because not even the laws of the land are being applied to them at the moment. They are not being held responsible for their disastrous and shameful behavior so they feel that they have arrived at a new level in their power grab and will be allowed to continue. They seriously think they are in control of the entire country.

I would like to quote the words of a Portland activist, whose name I will leave out because I don’t want to legitimize her. She clearly stated her agenda when she said she organizes for “the abolition of…the United States as we know it.”

By burning Bibles, the protesters/domestic terrorists’s message and agenda is very clear, and it is not protesting against the death of George Floyd, although that may have something to do with it. Their clear agenda is to destroy this country. They are out to destroy America. They are not only angry at us, but they are angry at God. They clearly manifested this by burning the Bibles. They have openly declared war on God. There is no worse fool than one who denies the existence of Almighty God: “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds… “(Psalms 14:1).  No one that has declared war on the God of the Bible has ever won. No one ever will!

Burning the Bible does not do anyone any favors. This has been tried countless times in history in many parts of the world, but the Word of God cannot be destroyed. No one who has tried has ever ultimately succeeded because God is the one who will always protect the Bible in its integrity because he wants to make it available to all generations even after this earthly planet is no more. “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away” (Matthew 24:35). “…until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” (Matthew 5:18).

What the protesters are saying is that they are anti-Western civilization and all that it stands for and they are out to change that no matter what it takes. They have bought into the lie of the “Marxist paradise”. But in reality, they are spoiled cowards. If they were serious about the Marxist ideology they could very easily go live in the countries that are under Marxist rule like China, Venezuela and Cuba, among others. They need to leave us alone. They don’t have to “reinvent the wheel”. All they have to do is buy a one-way ticket to those destinies and live “happily” ever after. 

In all fairness, I will grant the protesters that America desperately needs a reformation, but it is not walking away from God, rather we need to walk toward him once again as a nation. America must become godlier instead of godless. Many of us are praying, working and voting to make this reformation a reality. Won’t you join us?
