Want another sign that America is under God’s judgment?
The movie Deadpool earned more money in its opening weekend than any other previous “R” rated movie in history and continues to earn lots of money.
(Full disclosure: I have not seen, nor will I see the movie Deadpool. Reading the reviews was enlightening and nauseating enough.)
Why is that a sign that America is under God’s judgment? Because the success of Deadpool reveals the depth of depravity Americans, a vast majority who self-identify as Christains, now willfully pay to swim in. Deadpool is an ocean of filth filled with human excrement; not excrement of the bowels, but excrement of the darkened mind of man taken captive by sin, the darkened mind of man that glorifies and applauds perversion and evil, the darkened mind of man that covers Truth with lies lest their conscience begin to stir and condemn them.
Deadpool is in truth a Cesspool.
The excrement of the mind found in this movie includes pornography every bit as degrading as anything once restricted to X-rated theaters or peepshows of yesteryear when the shame of pornography still existed, shame that was evident by the fact that these places of business operated under the cover of darkness in the economic cesspools of towns and cities.
But this cesspool of pornography has now flooded over into mainstream America. It is no longer shameful to view pornography. Rather, it is those who still find pornography shameful that are mocked and ridiculed.
The excrement of the mind found in this movie also includes ubiquitous profanity of the basest nature, words that at one time only the most crass and indecent men would utter and even then usually in a non-public setting.
But this verbal cesspool of once scandalous profanity is now heard coming from the mouths of children thanks in large part to them seeing and hearing those they admire and idolize on TV and the movies spewing out profanity as if it were the epitome of coolness and intelligence rather than a sign of immaturity and mindlessness.
The excrement of the mind found in this movie also includes mind-numbing violence on a scale reminiscent of ISIS terrorists beheading Christians or setting them on fire while trapped in a cage. Evidently people are sliced and diced, riddled with bullets and shrapnel, and mutilated in the most dehumanizing ways possible ad-nauseam simply for the purpose of taking pleasure in seeing others suffer. The most barbaric gladiatorial games in ancient Rome were tame in comparison to the brutality inflicted upon people in this movie.
The violence in Deadpool is a diseased infested cesspool that serves no purpose except to cause the one swimming in it to acquire spiritual atherosclerosis leading to a blockage of Truth to the spirit and soul with unspeakable evil. The result is a diseased spirit that takes delight and pleasure in witnessing gratuitous and unmitigated violence being inflicted upon human beings created in the very image of God. Left unchecked the spirit of the one who swims in the cesspool of violence grows ever colder until all feeling toward one’s fellow man, and ultimately toward man’s Creator – God, is gone.
This type of violence is Satan’s drug of choice to hook man into becoming his slave for once he is comfortable witnessing his fellowman being butchered as a form of entertainment it makes the swallowing of other lies much easier because man becomes nothing more than an unreasoning brute beast where might makes right.
This is the movie Deadpool or rather Cesspool. But is it really a sign of God’s judgment upon America? It’s just a movie after all. It’s not real. Nevertheless, it is a sign of God’s judgment. The Bible makes that clear in the book of Romans.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse” (Romans 1:18-20 ESV).
“Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them” (Romans 1:24 NASU).
“For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions” (Romans 1:26 NASU).
The wrath of God is a form of His judgment. And His judgment comes against all ungodliness and unrighteousness. Why? Because those who practice sin know deep down that what they are doing is wrong, evil. They willfully and defiantly chose to engage in wrongdoing and evil to feed their sin-nature. But not satisfied with feasting upon filth themselves they do everything they can to entice others to join them in engaging in wrongdoing and evil. And what’s the result? God’s judgment. God’s judgment upon individuals and if the individuals don’t repent of their sins, God’s judgment upon a nation. And what is that judgment?
“Therefore God gave them over…” Gave them over to what? Over to pornography until it destroys the ability to enter into the types of relationships that feed the deep intimacy all human beings need in order to experience true love. Over to profanity until pure and holy speech is snuffed out resulting in a person no longer able to lift his voice in praise and worship to a pure and holy God. Over to violence until it loses its repulsiveness and becomes a means of entertainment.
The book of Romans goes on to say…
“And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them” (Romans 1:28-32 NASU).
A more accurate description of many in America would be difficult to come by.
“God gave them over…”
The success of Deadpool (Cesspool) is a sign of God’s wrath upon a disobedient and rebellious people and nation for He has given us over to our lusts, our passions, and our depraved minds.
Don’t believe it? That’s what Satan is counting on because his natural feeding trough is a Cesspool. And guess who he’s having for dinner.
