California Gov. Jerry Brown Accuses Trump of Not Believing in the Fear of God and His Wrath
Art Linkletter’s radio show House Party and television series, Art Linkletter’s House Party, carried a segment called “Children Say the Darndest Things.” It later ran as a comedy series hosted by Bill Cosby.
In addition to children saying the darndest things, politicians also say the darndest things. The latest is from California’s governor Jerry Brown. Imagine the firestorm if some Republican governor had said the following about Pres. Obama:
I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility… This is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed.
And why is that? Because, according to Brown, Pres. Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Accord on the fiction of man-made climate change. “The truth of the case is that there’s too much carbon being emitted, that heat-trapping gases are building up, the planet is warming and all hell is breaking loose,” Brown said. “So I’d say to Mr. Trump, take a deeper look. Now is not the time to undo what every country in the world is committed to.” These countries are committed to it because the United States was going to have to pony up billions of dollars.
The Governor of California who supports and funds women who choose to kill their unborn babies, same-sex sexuality, a practice the Bible condemns, gender confusion, and wealth confiscation is accusing Pres. Trump of not fearing God and his wrath because of Trump’s rational views on “climate change.”
It seems to me that it’s Brown and the politicians in California who do not fear the true God and His wrath. One could point out that droughts and massive fires could be a sign that God’s wrath is being poured out on California for its high-handed sins against God.
Where are the ACLU, Freedom From Religion Foundation, and prominent atheist apologists? What Brown said is very close to what Judge Roy Moore believes. There is general silence among these groups because Brown is advocating for a different god, a god created in man’s image that is similar to ancient pagan religions. Today’s secular gods are similar to Baalism and Molechism.
Ba’al was the sun and storm-god conceived in Babylon under the name Bel, or Lord. He was venerated in the form of a golden calf with a halo between its horns because the sun is in the constellation Taurus the Bull during the vernal equinox when it is alleged that Mother Earth is impregnated by our local star. As a result, the son of the sun is born at the winter solstice, nine months later.
Baal is the god of modern-day environmentalists who venerate the creation rather than the Creator (Rom. 1:18-27). According to Brown and his fellow environmental crazies, we’ve offended the storm-god.
Moloch is the god of child sacrifice (Lev. 18:21; 20:3-5; 2 Kings 23:10; Jer. 32:35). Abortion (child sacrifice) is the modern-day sacrament of liberalism. Much of what we are seeing today politically can be traced back to these pagan religions.
Yesterday, Dr. Gary North sent me a link to “Trial By Fire,” a sermon preached by Peter Marshall. Peter Marshall served as chaplain of the Senate from 1947 until his untimely death in 1949. “Trial By Fire” is a remarkably prescient message. It’s a message that needs to be heard today.
The leaders of ancient Israel (including the king) had come together to make a great decision. It was a national emergency. Elijah the prophet had summoned them to meet on Mt. Carmel to settle no less a question than whom they should worship.
William Penn has said that men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants. Here then was a Hebrew prophet facing the very same issue and making his people face it with him. They all knew the history of their nation. How God had led their fathers out of bondage into a new land as pioneers. How His Holy Law had been written into the nation’s Constitution. How The Ten Commandments had become a Bill of Rights and a Declaration of Dependence. But something in the nation’s life had begun to fade. Moral decay had set in. They had begun to love things more than principles. They had become materialists. And materialism had a god – a god of the flesh. And his name was Baal.
See the book (1951) and film (1955) by the same title A Man Called Peter for more information about Pastor Peter Marshall.
