The definiton of the word “cult” varies a bit from dictionary to dictionary, but here is a one defintion: an instance of great veneration of a person, ideal, or thing, especially as manifested by a body of admirers:
Here is a definition of idolatry: excessive or blind adoration, reverence, devotion, etc.
Creating cults of idolatry is a fashion of the world. The left counts on the use of idolatry cults to mold and shape society.
An idol is used to pollute the stream of thought, the ideals of society.
By creating a system of “idolatry cult” in the United States, people are more easily swayed. Where the idol goes, the people go.
There are a lot of examples that could be used.
Recently, it could be said there was a “Fauci” cult. What he said, for a time anyway, was considered “science”, whether it was actually based on facts or not. Churches, schools, economies, lives and livlihoods were shut down.
Medical professionals, acting as whistleblowers, at the price of their careers, came out and gave actual scientific facts to counter lies.
Finally, the truthful facts battered against the cult long enough that the lies of the plandemic began to be exposes; the tide has begun to turn.
It is not completely over yet. There needs to be a Nuremberg II trial to remove this kind of a scourge off of the face of the earth.
Secular society pushes idols, such as Fauci or Hollywood, front and center as models to instruct the young.
A Better Way
Instead of the world’s model, the Lord God made the family the center of instruction. This is why the left works so hard to destroy the family.
Deuteronomy 6:6 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
2 That thou mightest fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Deuteronomy 11:1 Therefore thou shalt love the Lord thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.
2 And know ye this day: for I speak not with your children which have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement of the Lord your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his stretched out arm,
3 And his miracles, and his acts, which he did in the midst of Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land;
4 And what he did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and to their chariots; how he made the water of the Red sea to overflow them as they pursued after you, and how the Lord hath destroyed them unto this day;
5 And what he did unto you in the wilderness, until ye came into this place;
6 And what he did unto Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben: how the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the substance that was in their possession, in the midst of all Israel:
7 But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the Lord which he did.
8 Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it;
9 And that ye may prolong your days in the land, which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a land that floweth with milk and honey.
10 For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:
11 But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:
12 A land which the Lord thy God careth for: the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.
13 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.
15 And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.
16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
17 And then the Lord’s wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the Lord giveth you.
18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:
21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;
Even though those words were spoken to the children of Israel, they are still relevant to us today, in the same way that the Constitution is relevant to us today, in the same way that the law of gravity is relevant to us today, in the same way that a healthy lifestyle is relevant to us today. Certain things do not go out of style.
Ecclesiastes 1:4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
7 All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
The left would have us forget history, forget the lessons of “former things” and focus on idols. If a society becomes “idol minded”, it is easier for society to be manipulated. People are taught to look in one direction. The left watches where people are looking; powerful voices are shut down when those voices are displeasing to the powers-that-be.
This is not to say that there should not be good leadership; there should be. People should support good leadership. However, everyone needs to be equally engaged and informed to be able to pick up the banner if the left attempts to crash and burn one leader .
It is easier to attack one point of strength than multiple points of awareness and strength.
This is why the individual awareness, knowledge, and voice of each and every individual in their own sphere of life is important, as well as the voice of the leaders.
In Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, the followers of this marxist ideology taught to isolate, freeze, and attack certain targets. But if all individuals, as well as leaders, are educated and informed, it makes it harder for the left to isolate and attack targets as there are now many points of intelligent awareness.
It is only by overwhelming propaganda, as happened in the case of the covid plandemic, that they were able to overcome a large population at once. There has to be a certain passivity and lack of awareness on the part of a large population for that kind of mass deception to take place. And there has to be a corruption of society where people in significant positions of leadership or in the media are threatened, bribed, and blackmailed (think Epstein, Hunter’s laptop, etc.) in order to push the deception and lies on the population overall.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Link
Satan rules over the kingdom of darkness. Light dispels darkness. This is why, instead of a cult of idols which can be used to disseminate lies, people must be knowledgeable and engaged at their own level in resisting the darkness, with the light of truth.
This applies to all levels of society, and all venues of society. Like the human body which consists of many different organs that work together for the health of the whole, no one is exempt from this ideological and spiritual war.
Ecclesiastes 8:8 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
9 All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.
10 And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done: this is also vanity.
11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:
13 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.
