CNN, Global lockdown…and Prime Truth Number One

The world’s ignorance of the truth of mankind’s existence is clearly reflected in the stance taken by the news media.
Amid the global lockdown concerns and the input of spiritual leaders, CNN (News) reported on and featured a clip showing Dr. Robert Jeffress, a Christian Pastor and one of Pres. Trump’s spiritual advisors, welcoming the President to their 2020 Easter service by internet. The CNN presenter immediately pointed out that Dr. Jeffress was a controversial preacher, guilty of making ‘inflammatory’ remarks about other religions. No doubt the presenter was alluding to the United States Constitution, which makes provision for freedom of religion.

Before proceeding, let’s consider some (biblical) historical background information on this matter,

There are two powerful, unseen forces, at work in the natural, material world in which we live. They are the Holy Spirit and the spirit of darkness. The vast majority of the human race is not only oblivious to the existence of the latter, but they are also completely unaware that they are actually in captivity to this dark force and that they conduct their lives according to the dictates of this force. To put it plainly, they say and do as they are told.

Those operating under the power of the Holy Spirit are told to meekly instruct those who are in captivity so that “they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.” (2Tim. 2:25,26)

Jesus also made it clear that he came “to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; (Isaiah 61:1)

The fact of the world being in captivity and the need to be set free is also borne out by Col 1:13. “(Jesus) Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:”

Now back to that CNN report. The presenter’s interjection to point out Dr. Jeffress’s transgression is a prime example of a member of the human race being in enslavement to the power of darkness. The CNN presenter clearly viewed Dr. Jeffress as just a leader of a religion such as the leaders of so many other religions and that he had no right to make derogatory statements about other religions. How manifestly naive of this presenter to make a statement like that, but it is completely expected for a captive of darkness to follow the nature of her jailor, that is, Satan.

Dr. Jeffress does not represent just any religion out there. He represents God through the Redeemer of the human race, namely, Jesus Christ, who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

There is no religion on earth by which the human race can be saved, except through the very Creator of the Universe, namely, Jesus Christ. It is this Creator that Dr. Jeffress represents. No comparison can be made with any other man-made religion. “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

Furthermore, Dr. Jeffress may have made “inflammatory” statements about all the false religions out there, but he is not alone. Guess who else made ‘inflammatory’ statements about all the ‘other’ religions? God Himself did so. He not only made derogatory statements about all the false religions – He wiped the followers of false religions off the face of the earth and commanded His people to do the same. That was under the Old Covenant.

Under the New Covenant followers of false religions are under Grace, that is, while they still live they have time to come to repentance and salvation by only one Name. And that is what Dr. Jeffress was pointing to in his preaching about religions, so conveniently labelled as ‘inflammatory remarks’ by those under the shackles of the spirit of darkness.

While the deluded members of the human race splutter around in the darkness that surrounds them, may they come to realise Prime Truth Number One – and that is, “The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” (Ps 24:1)
