The Bible makes it perfectly clear that “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all nations that forget God” (Ps. 9:17).
The wicked being every person engaged in some kind of unrepentant rottenness that defies God’s commands.
Collective wickedness naturally causes a nation to “forget,” probably better rendered “ignore,” God, which in turn leads it to the torments of hell—on earth.
Today, although various nations have their taboos against certain behavior, too many of those same nations are being taken advantage of by Islamists who are using the secular state to further its agenda.
France, Sweden, Norway, Britain, Germany, Canada, Spain, the United States, et al, have all adopted secularist approaches to governing, which means that there is no objective basis for rejecting or combating Islamic Shariah ideology or infection, apart from taking up arms.
For those nations that have taken up arms, the repercussions have been anything but successful.
In fact, the Islamists encourage such responses, since it gives them justification to wage the more severe forms of jihad that they call “defensive.”
Defensive jihad simply entails striking back at those who have rejected Islam.
So much for there being no compulsion in religion, as the Islamist constantly reminds everyone.
What we have seen recently in Nice, France is a classic example of a secular state that had responded to the jihadist’s hostile attack against Charlie Hebdo.
France bombed ISIS, heavily, in Syria, only to have the Muslims react with the catastrophic attack that killed another 84 French citizens and foreign visitors.
In Sweden, which is a decidedly secular state, the Muslims have become so brazen in their demands that they have assured the women there that should they choose not to wear a headscarf, they will be subject to rape.
This, of course, is a prelude to full acceptance of Islam as the new rule.
The Turkish military, along with thousands of judges and citizens, wished to return to a secular form of governing, what they call “democratic,” only to have its coup effort thwarted.
Islamist President Erdogan called the failed effort a “gift from Allah” and promised severe punishment for all the “traitors,” which is interpreted to mean numerous beheadings are on the way.
Yet, whether one is talking about the secular government in those nations or elsewhere, the liberal policies of those same nations only help to fuel the Islamic invasion.
Liberal policies such as endorsing and embracing homosexual marriage, illegal immigration, a perpetual welfare state, neo-Marxist ideas parading about as political correctness or race-baiting, destruction of national sovereignty in exchange for one-world governing, and a judicial system based on demagoguery rather than the truth, all contribute to the weakening of a nation.
The Muslim sees all of this and knows that it boils down to a waiting game.
Sure, there are going to be moments when there are 9/11s, a San Bernardino, or a Madrid, Spain, where a few infidels need to lose their lives and the secularist continues to understand the fury of Mujahideen.
But, for the most part, the secularists in the west are handing over their livelihoods to the Islamists and are doing so willingly. The secularist really has nothing to live for, which is why he really has nothing to die for either.
To the secularist, there is no God or at least anyone higher than the secularist’s egotistical self, to be held accountable.
He measures everyone and everything by his own self-centered standard, believing that as long as he leaves everyone alone, everyone will like him; life will go on its merry way and we will all just live together in one, big, harmonious human brotherhood.
Such delusional thinking only strengthens the Islamic resolve that if he will simply hang around long enough, as he siphons off resources and brainwashes the secularist public into believing Islam is either compatible with or better than the current form of living arrangements the secularist has established, then conquest is inevitable.
Full-blown Islamism is on the verge of being delivered to the doorsteps of every western nation and secularism is the vehicle that is delivery driver.
Both ideologies are inherently destructive, with secularism definitely being the weaker-willed of the two.
At this point in human history, the wicked are being turned into hell, mainly because too many nations have forgotten God.
It has the foretaste of things to come, as an even greater tribulation awaits right around the corner.
