The Evil spirit of Liberalism

Liberalism is perhaps the most deceptive and evil ideologies of all the evil ideologies in the world. It is the evil of all evils. This is by no means a statement of hatred against people who embrace of hold onto liberalism. Rather, it is an exposition of the evil demonic spirit behind it. To expose and rebuke people for their error which will lead them to Hell, is the most loving thing one can do. This is precisely the purpose of exposing the spirit of liberalism.

Liberalism in the context of this blog is not referring to liberalism is as political, cultural, anthropological or sociological ideology. Rather, it is referring to a real demonic evil spirit which works through the unsaved and also deceives even the truly saved into his deceptions.

How can one know there is a spirit behind the ideology of liberalism? Only by spiritual discernment can one discern evil spirits behind evil doctrines. As long as it  does not acknowledge that Jesus is God in the flesh, that is, God in human form, it is of an evil spirit. There are evil spirits behind false doctrines, which is a concept that many in the modern church cannot even get their heads around. 

1 John 4:1-3 makes it clear that evil spirits do work through doctrines and are behind doctrines:

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.  Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

The test is literally that if a spirit confesses that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, that is of God, and as long as a spirit does not confess that Jesus Christ is God, it is not of God. It is clear and conclusive test as to by what authority does a spirit testify. Indeed, only by the Holy Spirit can one say that Jesus is God: Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost (1 Corinthians 12:3). It does not matter whether a person or doctrine is "religious" or not - anything or anyone that does not believe and trust in ALL that Jesus said or in ALL truths about who He was is anti-Christ

Jesus is not only of authority, but He is THE authority of all things. Only Jesus, who is God in the flesh can make statements that are true of themselves by the very virtue that Jesus made such statements. Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6). 

Jesus Himself is the way, the truth and the life. He IS Truth incarnate, Truth in human flesh. John 1:1-3 says:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Is there any wonder why the book of mormon twists this verse which is about who Jesus was and that He is the Truth? Any false religion is anti-Christ and therefore wicked and evil, not merely because God "thinks" so, but because it is against God's very nature, against the Word who was with God, and who was God (1 John 1). Indeed this is why the Bible says "God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged" (Romans 3:4). 

So, what is this to do with liberalism, you might ask. You may ask, "aren't there all these false religions out there, and so why are you targeting liberalism"? It is not a matter of "targeting" liberalism, and even if it was, it deserves targeting. The spirit of liberalism, an evil demonic spirit that works to deceive both people who call themselves 'liberals' and 'conservatives'. He seduces people into embracing the ultimate form of humanism.

Liberalism as this blog uses the term is not referring to what the world knows as political liberalism. It is referring to a spirit which works through political liberalism, political conservatism, social liberalism and social conservatism, especially in the modern west. The entire modern west is absolutely struck blind by liberalism. All sides of politics and all the unsaved ideologues, whether 'liberal' or 'conservative' in the earthly sense are under the spirit of liberalism. Both the unsaved 'liberals' and unsaved 'conservatives' in the west are under the spirit of liberalism. 

The spirit of liberalism who works through liberalism in the spiritual sense, not the political or cultural sense manifests himself as secular humanism. Both unsaved liberals and conservative ideologues embrace secular humanism, and thus, under the spirit of liberalism.
