Satan's Deadly Silver Lining

By Nathan Payne | pablosmoglives | 12 Jun 2022

"If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.”  John 9:41


The phenomenon of the self-righteous, pontificating bullfrog who presumes to speak for Heaven so as to drag you into hell with him is nothing new.  The likelihood is very high that you've met someone at some point in your life who is so singularly self-righteous, so infernally, unbelievably holier-than-thou, that you decided on the spot that if that person is going to Heaven, you would rather go to hell.

Some guy standing at your brother's funeral with a THANK GOD FOR DEAD SOLDIERS sign was all you needed to see to decide for yourself that you weren't going to have anything to do with God for the rest of your life.


A demon standing on the side of the road with a "God Hates Fags" sign drives more people into supporting manufactured LGBT issues, if not outright homosexuality, than any gay rights apologist ever could.  Who would you rather go to the buffet at Golden Corral with after the protest?  This abuse victim who believes I will eat my babies if I disagree with her on the slightest point,


Or metalheads with kazoos?


Would you rather hang out with a guy who stands outside of a school (presumably) or possibly funeral, telling people that God sent the guy who killed their loved ones,


Or laughing guys dressed like bananas?


The answer is obvious.  And Satan loves it.  Check him out, thoroughly enjoying the circus he created:


Even the guy wearing the "God Hates Fags" shirt is grinning.  Of course he is.  Why wouldn't he be deriving the same gleeful pleasure as the guy who is dressed like Satan?  They both work for the devil.  Why shouldn't they share a laugh at the chaos they've created?

They're the same guy.  One will be wearing different clothes, a different facial expression, and will use different rhetoric and colloquialisms to appeal to different segments of society as the other, but their goal is the same.

The pedophile priest, the strutting transsexual drag queen, the religious hypocrite who cloaks his sin in scripture and self-righteousness... all are being used by Satan in different ways.  They are different facets of the same malignant jewel, displayed and illuminated from different angles, to achieve the same end:

The deception and total destruction of themselves, humanity, and the world.

The sanctimonious, judgmental display is effective, because it's abhorrent.  The flashy gay parade works, because it's fun.  The uptight, religious side drives you out of the arms of God, and the free-wheeling, chemically-enhanced side drives you into the hands of Satan.

Anything to keep you out of Heaven.


Because if Satan can get you to believe that "God hates fags,"

he can get you to believe this:


It's the same message, from a different angle.  Satan will bash you over the head with a fag-hating billy club of Biblical proportions, so that you come running into his arms for acceptance and relief.  His would-be solutions are a spiritual Hegelian dialectic, a trap, a deadly silver lining, for a stormcloud he created.

Don't fall for it.

People say "God is Love," and they are right.  John 3:16-17 are perhaps the most famous verses in the Bible, and God's love is clear in both of them.  Not only did God "so love the world" that He "gave His only begotten Son," but the reason for this probably-unsolicited assistance is NOT to condemn the world, but rather, TO SAVE IT.


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."  John 3:16-17


So if Christ did not come to condemn the world, what did He come down here for?  To spark up some weed with us while knocking back a 12-pack around the campfire, ignoring our salacious jokes and furious barking as we indulge our insatiable appetites for deadly, worldly diversions before joining us at drag queen night at the gay bar, where there are never any drugs, so He can show us how much He cares about us by watching us strip-tease each other into topless, leather-clad submission, crawling around on sticky floors while trying not to OD on Ketamine, because that's just how we are, and He wants to make sure we know He's cool with it?

Do we really need any help with that?  From God, the devil, or anyone?

Or did he not come down here to condemn us because there's NO REASON to condemn us, because we're condemned and judged already?


“He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”  John 3:18


Well, at least it isn't unclear.  We're condemned already.  Hating us would be redundant.

Unless, of course, you're working for....


Thanks for listening.
