Pagan Lords Again
Whether in Africa, Europe, or America, pagan lords have one thing in common--they are self-serving. It's always about them. Not surprising then, their world revolves around the cult of personalities. They may attend church, they could even be "ministers" of the Gospel. It is about perception. They basically perceive the world, church attendance and activities not withstanding, as existing for those who can grab the most of whatever there is they are looking for.
Whether somebody is giving False Witness against the innocent somewhere in West Africa in order to get a free ticket to Canada or to the United States, or some in authority in the United States siding up with untruth for partisan interest, or whether it is the president of Equatorial Guinea and his sons siphoning the resources of their impoverished nation to benefit only members of their own family, it is all done in the same spirit--the spirit of the pagan lord! They are everywhere on earth.
"O LORD our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us, but your name alone do we honor."-- Isaiah 26:13 (NIV)
"O LORD our God, others have ruled us, but you alone are the one we worship."--Isaiah 26:13 (NLT)
Pagan lords can be found in every city, every town, every country. And there will always be those who rule over you as people who inhabit the earth space, but how many have become your gods because of what you get from them? Do you pay respect to human beings or do you worship them for the size of their bank accounts? So what do you witness to the pagan lords when you're in their midst? That it is okay to steal and defraud others with the left hand and do "charitable work" with the right?
It is time to be wise by the Word of God. Nothing can save from the calamity that is ahead. Only God's truth can.
