We are All Born Slaves to Sin

IMG“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

I’ll bet some of you sometimes wonder if this website is supposed to be about prophecy or conspiracy. I need remind you that the two are not mutually exclusive, but intrinsically related. I’m going to go into detail about how, but first you need to understand something.

If you are a Christian who believes in both a literal Satan and Hell the above quote should come as no surprise. Why? Because Satan is the current ruler of this world and every single one of us are born slaves to him through our inherent sin nature. And if we are honest with ourselves we must admit that a part of us will always love our slavery to sin. Yes, even Christians, indeed especially us Christians, because our Christ consciousness via the Holy Spirit makes us so keenly aware of our sin natures and indeed convicts us of all sin.

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1 John 1:8 (KJV)

John taught us that if we say we have no sin the truth is not in us. The Holy Spirit is the ‘spirit of truth’ that abides within us. Pretending that we do not ever sin only exacerbates the problem. Yes, we must be aware that our sin nature is always active. The only recourse we have is to repent of our sins as the Holy Spirit convicts us of them. Contrary to what that false Christian Joseph Prince teaches not only does the Holy Spirit convict us of sin, that is one of His main purposes in the heart of the believer. If you are not ever convicted of sin you do not have the Holy Spirit abiding in you, plain and simple.

But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
Romans 7:23-25 (KJV)

Now one of the dirty little secrets your pastor never told you was that our sin nature never leaves us. There is and always will be a part of us that loves sin. But when we choose to serve God we become a new creature in Christ. That sin nature is still there, but now it has an opponent. That opponent is the Holy Spirit abiding in us.

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 1:32 (KJV)

On the surface it may seem ridiculous to think that slaves could somehow come to love their servitude, yet that is just what has happened. How is this possible? Because we have allowed ourselves to value ease of living instead of truth, and chosen fantasy over reality. Rationalization is a powerful reality avoidance technique.

That is not to say that reality is an easy thing to tackle. We are living in the times predicted by “The Emperor’s New Clothes” by Hans Christian Andersen. People insist that 70s Olympic Champion Bruce Jenner is now a woman just because He calls himself Caitlyn and wears women’s clothes. Some feign confusion about their gender, apparently unable to deduce it from what is between their legs. A fairy tale indeed.

Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
Ezekiel 16:49 (KJV)

The type of servitude Huxley speaks of is to our flesh, because while we are distracted serving it the rulers of this world are unhindered in their wicked endeavors. Every time we choose to watch TV or a film we escape this life for a certain period of time. Same thing happens when we spend hours playing video games. Reality avoidance is big business, perhaps the biggest out there, and our slave masters have made sure there is plenty of it to go around.

Consuming media is Satan’s solution for our ‘abundance of idleness’, making sure we never have the time or inclination to actually ponder our slavery. Look, people are chasing invisible cartoon characters all over the world and dressing as furry animals. If that is not the very definition of abundance of idleness I don’t know what is. Our bellies are indeed full of bread just like those in Sodom. We are fat and lazy, living in a reality bubble called the American dream with a false sense of security.

Now let me expand a bit on Huxley’s description. These slaves of course never even suspect that they are in fact slaves, which is an amazing feat indeed. How is this possible? Because these slave owners have burrowed their illusions so deep into our psyches as to have persuaded us to believe that our slavery is actually freedom! Indeed, how else could you explain how they managed to convince millions of women that it is their ‘right’ to slaughter their own unborn children?

Another example of slavery portrayed as freedom occurred in the early 20th century. Back then, cigarette smoking in public was largely a social taboo for women until a man named Edward Bernays got involved. Greedy cigarette manufacturers were not satisfied with the sales of their poison to women. Bernays was given an idea: connect smoking with equality of the sexes, then just an emerging movement. He did so by referring to cigarettes as ‘torches of freedom’, intentionally evoking imagery of the Statue of Liberty and thereby subtly equating smoking with patriotism on a subliminal level. How many millions of women (including my Mom) died of lung cancer as a result of this ‘freedom’ to smoke? Freedom to become physically enslaved to nicotine. You’ve come a long way baby.

Does it seem like a trend to target women? That is no mistake. A woman’s judgment is much more easily clouded by emotion than a man’s. Since the Garden Satan has deduced that one of the best ways to manipulate men is through women. How so? Because as rational and logical as a man can be, he will easily abandon those devices in order to please or entice a woman, even when it isn’t in his best interests. Look at Jezebel, Delilah and Salome as prime biblical examples.

Another point to ponder is how rationalization can lead to the most irrational decisions. Does any thinking person really believe that a cigarette is a ‘torch of freedom’ or an unborn baby is just a blood clot? Of course not. These are rationalizations of convenience employed so that we can satisfy our flesh while ignoring our conscience.

We have allowed their media outlets to define our morals. We are shown fictional characters who are thrown into extraordinary circumstances and fantasize of what we would do in their situation. Consider a movie like “Taken” for example, where the daughter is kidnapped and the father desperately searches for her, killing anyone who gets in his way in the process. Our minds are programmed from the first images we see to identify with the protagonist and hate the antagonist. We root for “Rocky” to beat his opponent into a coma and for Charles Bronson in “Death Wish” to kill all the ‘bad guys’.

This programming spills over into real life, exactly as intended.
