Satan's greatest weapon against all of mankind is unbelief. Unbelief that Satan and hell exist, unbelief that the Bible is God's word, and our owners manual for living our lives, and unbelief that we are sinners, and that it is impossible to get into Heaven on our own merit because we would have to be sinlessly perfect, that only by excepting God's free gift of grace, and saving faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, who is sinlessly perfect, our substitute for the death we deserve, can we hope to get into Heaven. Yes, it's the liberal ideaology that is self centered, believing that they are free from all absolute authority, and therefore free to pursue any path they wish that makes Satan very happy.

If the Bible is “a radically pro-slavery document” (Dan Savage), how is it that Christians who successfully fought for the abolition of slavery in the 18th and 19th centuries based their opposition to slavery on that very same Bible? The answer is simple: The Bible is actually not “a radically pro-slavery document.”

According to Savage (following atheist Sam Harris), “the Bible got the easiest moral question that humanity has ever faced wrong. Slavery! What’re the odds that the Bible got something as complicated as human sexuality wrong? 100% percent.”

To be candid, it’s easy to see where Savage and Harris are...
