“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6b
Hundreds of thousands of women marched in many cities across the United States and around the world to protest the installation of Donald Trump as the President of the United States. I do not have any delusions that Trump will control of the massive runaway spending or rein in much of the regulations that have been tormenting us for the last several decades. What is interesting is that these women who marched in the streets were worrying that Trump will take away their liberties and possibly putting them in camps ala Adolf Hitler. Somebody should have told them that the instruments of their oppression have been in place for almost 60 years which were begun shortly after the Second World War. The CIA, NSA, FBI, ATF and other federal agencies have a heavy grip on our land and can take away our way of life in an instant.
But let’s look at the some things that has concerned me about these marches. Their vulgarity, their discontent and their seething of rebellion seems akin to something that happened thousands of years ago. Not content with the manna given by God, the people of Israel demanded quail and complained day after day. The Lord was angry with them and struck many of them down for discontent. But the real issue is their boastful pride in their movement. Ashley Judd perfectly stated the zeitgeist of the progressive mindset when she stated:
Yeah, I’m a nasty woman — a loud, vulgar, proud woman.
This attitude is the zenith of human arrogance. In this march, there was absolutely NO humility at all. Nonstop boast of superiority over the man, over the cheeto skinned President and that they are the new vanguard of change. An air of nonstop revolution hovered over this crowd and sounded like the same people storming the Bastille, rioting in the streets of Petrograd, proclaiming the Great Leap Forward in China and other statements of ominous Utopianism. They will never be content until some blood is shed and that people are “re-educated” to conform to the new order.
Indeed we are a proud nation and our country deserves NOTHING but judgement. May God have mercy on us.
