Rise of the “Selfie” & “Self-Worship”

Back in the 90’s, if you took a photographic “selfie” of any sort, it generally meant you “had no friends”. But here, in the year 2017, the concept of the “selfie” has turned into a whole other meaning, completely. In today’s society & culture, if you DON’T take a “selfie”, it socially means that you have no friends or that you’re “not cool”.

But what exactly is “the core” of a “selfie”? Answer: SELF-WORSHIP/WORSHIP OF SELF! I think alot of people are forgetting that. Today’s culture is all about me, me, me…..How will this or that make ME look? How will such n’ such benefit ME? What’s in it for ME? How does this relationship/job/friendship/etc. benefit ME?

Not to sound too brash here but today’s people are just IN LOVE WITH THEMSELVES! You go to someone’s Facebook page, for instance, and they have a bazillion photos of themselves from every which angle. And just think: They have to personally download/upload EACH and every single one. Plus some of the photos are even duplicates!

Now, don’t get me wrong here……I’m not saying that EVERY single person on Facebook is self-absorbed or that Facebook is the Devil or anything like THAT….But, over time, Facebook has evolved from its very humble beginnings to slowly becoming a more and more “self-absorbed media platform/narcissist’s dream”, as time goes on.  

And then you have Youtube. People that both “worship” Youtube (as though it’s some sort of “god”, I kid you not) and people that “utilize” Youtube to BE worshiped by others. Just think of all those videos from what I call “the million viewers club”. If they get over a million views on their video, then they’re eligible to be a Youtube partner and get payed a cut from “each” and every view of their videos (from how I understand it?) Basically, Youtube has become a “fame gone mad” type thing.

And these people that make millions of Youtube videos each year and make money off them………am I judging them? No. Not at all. But I DO kind’ve feel sorry for them in a small sense. Because when they say things like, “I’d like to think my subscribers”, or do crazy/dangerous things because their “subscribers asked them to”, etc., it’s like they’re turning to PEOPLE/SUBS for fulfillment, instead of to something much bigger and greater than them (i.e. Jesus Christ/Salvation) for fulfillment. And it just breaks my heart! They have NO IDEA of what they’re missing out on! 

But again, it’s really no different than the feeling that many famous celebrities feel when people “worship them”. Over time, they start to feel invisible and start worshiping THEMSELVES! And personally, Satan couldn’t be more the happier when that happens for it means just one more for the “eternal burn pile”, someday.

Think of Satan like the bad kid that acts up in class. He KNOWS he’s going to get in trouble with the teacher for “being bad” and be punished “real bad” afterwards but he wants to try to corrupt as many of the “good kids” in the class that he possibly can so that THEY get punished, too. His stealthy “warfare tactics” know no bounds! 

Self-worship is something that Satan was originally guilty of, up in heaven, during “The Fall”. So now, Satan wants humans to be like HIM: a self-deluded, self-worshiping creature! A creature who’s ANGRY with God/Jesus Christ, ANGRY with the bible & its commandments/decrees and ANGRY with everything that’s righteous & holy!

He’s likely full of “silent fear”. I think deep within the depths of his being, he KNOWS he can never be equal to God/Jesus Christ and he fears losing! But he likely masks that fear with DENIAL & DEFIANCE! For, he likely reasons, if he can mask his fear with denial & defiance, perhaps no-one (especially humans) will ever know how secretly “running scared” he is, underneath it all.

But going back to the concept of what I’ll call “selfie worship/self-worship” among the human race. Narcissism/Vanity & Pride are two of Satan’s top traits and now he’s trying to make as many human beings like this as possible! Why? To take them away from Almighty God/Jesus Christ/Salvation!

Because believe it or not folks, OUR suffering (physical, emotional & spiritual) pleases Satan! In fact, he’s quite HAPPY knowing that several humans will be thrown into the lake of fire at God’s Judgement, someday! He’s HAPPY knowing that several people are being snatched from Jesus Christ on a daily basis! He’s nothing short of evil/evil-minded!

Not to mention that people are SO hung up on taking “the perfect selfie” photograph these days, that several people have even DIED or gotten SERIOUSLY injured from it! This is NO laughing matter, folks! This is very, very serious!

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: Folks, we’re all being preconditioned on a VERY LARGE MASS SCALE to think/do the following:

  1. Worship Self/Be “Selfie-Obsessed”
  2. Worship Other Humans (i.e. Celebrities, Youtube “stars”, etc.)
  3. Accept the LGBT Agenda
  4. Accept the Trans Agenda
  5. Accept the G.S.A. Agenda
  6. Accept the New World Order SYSTEM
  7. Accept Abortion
  8. Accept “Gay Marriage/Gay Adoption/Gay Families”
  9. Accept Anti-Bible Rhetoric & Sentiments 
  10. Accept Mockery of Jesus & Christians
  11. Accept Drugs/Drug Use As “Socially Acceptable”
  12. Accept Any and ALL Liberal/Social Justice Causes
  13. ETC.

In fact, sadly, many of today’s problems have to do with “Social Justice Causes”. And while many “Social Justice Causes” might “seem” good on the surface, most of them are about as evil as can be! They MOCK Christ, they MOCK the bible, they MOCK the traditional family, they MOCK Christianity, plus they align PERFECTLY with Satan’s Will, NOT God’s Will!

For example: Abortion. “Social Justice Warriors” make it “seem” as though the “fight for abortion” is the “fight for women’s rights”. But lets peel back the layers a bit. What DO abortion procedures actually DO? Essentially, they make a pregnant woman an “unpregnant woman” (or rather, the mother of a “dead baby”). And how do they do that? They either stop the babies heart and/or RIP the baby out of the womb with forceps, LIMB BY LIMB! 

And just like selfies, abortion can even be likened to a FORM of “self-worship” (worship of oneself over one’s baby). Now tell me…..Why should women have the right to MURDER their babies? Especially considering that THEY THEMSELVES weren’t aborted in the womb and received the right to life! A baby’s heartbeat starts beating at just 21 DAYS after conception! 3 weeks, folks! 3 weeks! Plus research has shown that babies as young as 8 weeks (and probably even less) can FEEL PAIN! 

And yet, some of these “Social Justice Warriors” are trying to advocate for abortion at ANY point during pregnancy, even up until birth! THAT’S SPIRITUALLY DISGUSTING, FOLKS! What a “murderous/narcissistic spirit” we have roaming here in America, today! 

When a person decides who lives and who dies (think Euthanasia, for instance), that could be considered “playing god”. So how is abortion any different? If a woman’s right to “convenience” trumps a baby’s right to live, the woman (in a direct sense) is “playing god” (rather she realizes it or not). She’s worshiping her own body/reproductive system, rather than the one True God [Jesus Christ Almighty] who CREATED her reproductive system for marriage/children purposes! 

Selfies and vacation pics (in and of themselves) aren’t inherently evil, it’s oftentimes the intent behind posting them on social media that makes them evil. If I, for example, have a friend take a picture of me in front of a building in Germany and me and that friend/immediate family members are the only ones that see it, that’s one thing. But if I’m posting it on social media to “brag” about and “showcase” my so-called Germany vacation to the world wide web, that’d be quite another thing, altogether.

Now, if I were to somehow give glory to Jesus Christ FOR the so-called Germany vacation and showcased THAT thankfulness on social media under the picture captions or something, that would be ONE thing. But lets face it. Most people who post HUNDREDS of images on social media of, for example, their vacation to France, want other people to see “how great their life is”. Am I wrong, here? 

Which reminds me of some of the Youtube vloggers. Some of them are showcasing their entire lives on Youtube (everything from the first date to the kitchen sink and everything in between). And true, they might possibly be making money from those videos (which might be why they do it in the first place) but what many psychologists are saying these days is that these people are unfulfilled in their normal day-to-day lives. So for them, Youtube/social media is like an alternate universe where they can be something, be “someone”.

But folks, that’s what the sad thing is, really. Today’s “secular culture” (especially among young people) is UNFULFILLING. Today’s young people keep searching for that someone or something that will make them feel complete:

  1. “If I get a million subscribers on Youtube, I’ll feel complete”
  2. “If the U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of gay marriage, I’ll feel complete”
  3. “If I meet that special someone, I’ll feel complete”
  4. “If I get that raise or become famous, I’ll feel complete”
  5. “If I get that movie or TV part, I’ll feel complete”
  6. “If I get so many likes on my Facebook post/status, I’ll feel complete”
  7. “If I get married and have 1-3 kids, I’ll feel complete”
  8. ETC. 

But THEN what happens, folks? What happens when the thing happens? They’re STILL not “complete”. There’s a big gap of RESTLESSNESS in their lives and that gap can ONLY be filled/fulfilled by Jesus Christ Almighty! It sounds cliché but it’s true! 

Selfies and worship of self are not just about “vanity”, “pride” and “fitting in”. They’re about “popularity”. They’re about finding fulfillment IN people/social status, rather than in Jesus Christ. Just like Social Justices causes are about finding fulfillment in everything BUT Jesus Christ. 

The next time you or a loved one goes to take a “selfie” or do a Youtube video or post your “vacation pics” on Facebook, ask yourself the following three questions:

1). WHY am I doing this? What is my PRIME motivation?

2). AM I doing this to be “popular”, “seem cool”, or to “get attention?” 

3). Does what I’m doing bring glory to Jesus Christ at all? If not, then why am I still doing it?

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men SHALL BE LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are goodTraitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of GodHaving a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” – [2 Timothy 3: 1-5]

Satan’s Bride: The Roman Catholic Church & The Vatican, Part 3

**A continuation of parts 1 & 2……**

1. Nobody really knows what the true “net worth” of the Vatican is but there’s been some estimates that it could be as high as $10 to $15 BILLION.

With massive real-estate, artwork, financial investments, idols/relics/artifacts, etc., the Vatican is certainly one of the most richest institutions ON EARTH! This flies in comparison with Jesus Christ whom was born into a VERY poor household and whom carried NO money or possessions with him.

 2. Notice how the Pope is wearing a “Babylonian fish hat” modeled after the Babylonian fish king, Dagon.

3. The Bent Cross is actually an OCCULTIC SYMBOL. It is used by Satanists to signify an emaciated, suffering Christ and was revived by Vatican II.

4. Rites of Exorcism. How is it that Catholic “exorcism” seems so effective (in the movie “The Exorcist”) when the Catholic Church ITSELF is un-biblical, one might ask?

Answer: Satan and his demons can perform what’s known as “false miracles”. In the above case in the movie called “The Exorcist”, Satan just went from ONE person into another. He was not truly cast out because the priest was not truly saved in the name of Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! The following bible passages illustrate how and why Satan was NOT truly cast out of the little girl in “The Exorcist” movie. 

Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded” [Acts 19: 13-16]

 

 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders [2 Thessalonians 2:9]

And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the Lord had said [Exodus 7:22]

And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt[Exodus 8:7]

Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods” [Exodus 7: 11-2]

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light[2 Corinthians 11:14]

 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices[2 Corinthians 2:11]

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour [1 Peter 5:8]

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” [Ephesians 6: 11-12]

Translation? ONLY those who truly obey Jesus can cast out demons! Everything else is forfeit! 

5. The following song is either mocking or secretly giving away what “supposedly” happens behind closed doors at many “convents”.

6. During the time of the Middle Ages, many nuns got pregnant by priests and bishops and killed & disposed of their babies in order to hide the evidence that they had broken their vows of chastity.

7. One of the most popular myths about Satan (when it comes to the Catholic Church) is that Satan will never mock the Catholic church (which, in and of itself, is a false religious system). 

 

But the truth is, he’d do it in a heartbeat in order to CONFUSE PEOPLE and lead them spiritually astray. Examples? The following 2 songs.


Song A: Madonna’s “Like A Prayer”

LADY GAG2

Song B: Lady Gaga’s full-length “Alejandro”

Both songs attempt to mock and make fun of the “Catholic religion” but what they are REALLY doing at their core is mocking God (the Heavenly Father) and the holy Son of God, Jesus Christ!!!!
