God Is Laughing Especially Hard Today

The Aquila Report, an excellent Christian blog, had a great post yesterday about Election Day. Even non-Christians should find this an interesting take at least:

Aaaah, election day. You can almost taste the fear and money in the air. Political signs are lined up six deep along the road, and the Facebook posts are flying fast and furious. Over the past months politicians have spent billions of dollars on ads that go something like this:

“Are you aware that John Doe personally donated $12,000 dollars to the Communist Republic of China, supports putting elderly people on the street, personally placed three young children into the foster care of a violent street gang, and practices black magic? Is this the kind of man you want in office?”

This is a little like my Screwtape takeoff,

This is a little like my Screwtape takeoff, written on election, with the same idea in mind:

Screwtape receives a ballot

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Devil's bluster - hohoho

As some other posters have pointed out in the thread, laughing here doesn't mean enjoying it but something else.

The devil is also accounted as laughing, but laughing at *causing* misery. The belief was so common, that in medieval plays, the devil commonly came on stage with the line "hohoho", which was called the devil's bluster. (Look up "devil's bluster hohoho" on google books for more information).

My small Screwtape takeoff starts off this way for just this reason, fyi.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

I don't think so.

It would be some cruel and sadistic god to laugh at such horror. God, if he even exists, is probably weeping for the downfall of humanity.

I disagree with one sentence:

Yes we should vote.

Not if we have to compromise to do so.

No regrets.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

He shall have them in DERISION, yet...

...we will all likewise perish along side our enemies as the WHOLE NATION will suffer for NOT standing up for God's eternal LAWS:

Here it is gang; take it or leave it!

eternal laws?

such as, "do not kill?"
but god says "here is the promised land,go and kill every
inhabitant,including the animals"...now isn't this a contradiction?
or does it apply to only those of us who are gentiles?
do not commit adultery,which gender does this apply too?

Amazing, thanks, excellent share!

deacon's picture

i bet he is

if he actually laughs
you see,we were not given a chance
living on this rock for peace
the god who claims ownership took this before
it was even ours to give away
it was this god who through 1/3 of the heavenly beings
(spirits) and onto this planet
these same spirits inhabit the weak ones,and they dictate
what we go through while alive
these are the ones in office creating all manner of ill being
so how can anyone fight or even win against beings who are not
of this planet nor bound to its laws?

Castro, Stalin, Lenin,

Castro, Stalin, Lenin, Trotsky, Chavez, Putin and the Communist Internationalistas are all laughing right now...

Not God. I think God is about to click the giant intergalactic universal refresh button after this latest debacle in human history.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Imo

It is a good post. :)

I don't believe for a second

that God will be laughing. I believe that he will be weeping for all of the misery that people like Barry and his puppet masters will bring upon the innocents in the countries that they want for their own. I don't think any right minded person would think that God finds the drone bombing, war, death, and distruction a laughing matter.

In this case, "laughing" doesn't mean

funny ha ha. It means to hold in derision. The kings of the earth plot and scheme, thinking they are so big, so important, and that they are the absolute zenith of power, but God laughs at their swaggering self-importance. They are like ants having a giant ant battle on the sidewalk to God, who created, controls, and directs all things.

God will not be weeping..

God will not be weeping.. what we are about to see is Gods judgement.

BINGO...

...I am with you(and you know that personally, my friend!); all I am hearing from the MSM(and now this forum) is let's get the Republican Party to embrace abortion and homosexuality!!!

They already have, but; we see the SUCCESS the Democrats had yesterday(in the Illinois redrawn congressional districts, and with Wisconsin lesbian senator) by adopting the sins of Romans chapter 1 as their OFFICIAL agenda - and, I guess we want that success too...

Ron Paul said add virtue and excellence; now that he is gone, this hoodwinked libertarian "movement" says "let's also give the Creator our middle finger so we can gain political power from immoral persons"...

Yeah, only the Tea Party was co-opted!

I supported Ron Paul PRIMARILY because his adherence to the General Principles of Christianity were BELIEVABLE...he is a STATESMAN...and I am glad non-Christians, agnostics, and atheists supported him too; but I am still sticking with the General Principles of Christianity as our founders/framers and former STATESMAN understood, not this "do whatever you think is right in your OWN EYES" way of death march!!!

Here it is gang; take it or leave it!

Clarification:

To be clear, God isn't laughing at the misery that people are going through. Rather, He is laughing at the arrogant rulers who think they are on top of the world. Sin grieves and angers God.

Not a lunatic or a heretic. Just a Paulitic.

Then God still wont be laughing,

he will be grieved and angry.

I sure hope so!!!

Go God!

"I know major allies who fund them" Gen. Dempsey referring to ISIS

I never like when anyone attributes

base human emotions to God. It indicates they don't understand God at all. God is pure Love, love without those pesky attachments. God is Bliss. There is nothing He does not know beforehand because He is omniscient. God is the alpha and omega, the present, past and future. I say 'ye of little faith' when I read comments like yours because they indicate to me you have no faith that all of 'this' - whatever happens in this world' - is not somehow part of His plan. I ask that you do not pull God down to our level, but instead pray for the strength and wisdom to rise up to His.
"Be still, and know that I am God."

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison

It's the Holy Bible

that says God laughs at the kings who scheme and plot.

Belief

I would suggest that America (and most of the world) finds themselves in the socialism mess we are in is because the sheeple are gullible. They are quick to believe, rather than engage in the arduous task of thinking objectively (void of emotion or prejudice). For example, Mitt is asking the people to believe that he can fix the economy. Obama asked people to believe that he is going to bring real change. Most people don't want to think. They want to be told the way things are, and what they are to do.
Most people who grasp what Ron Paul is about have moved from "believing" to a "knowing for themselves". It has been my experience that most people steeped in religion have not yet moved from "believing in God" to "knowing God". And because such an individual has taken a position, and we are bred with a "need to be right", it is hard nut to crack.
Sighting the bible as authority inherently implies belief, rather than a knowing. The statement above somehow implies that I should believe that God laughs because the bible says so. Unfortunately believing it does not empower me. In deed, it makes me more insecure because I am relying on an external source. On the flip side, knowing God's love does empower me, and my need to prove my point by sighting the bible completely dissipates. In deed, the bible then becomes not a source of authority for truth, but an edification of it. Truth exist, whether the bible exists or not. Truth exists, independent of your interpretations, or mine.

Blessings...

Maybe your god...

should have brought about a Ron Paul victory then.

I don't play, I commission the league.

It is not wise to mock God

He may very well put Ron in the White House if He chooses to do so.
He can move hearts at His will!
The electoral college is still to take place.
I am still praying for His mercy upon this very, very sick nation!

Help us Lord God Almighty, help us we ask in Jesus' name!

was good too, and would have been good as a forum post as well. (One glaring error stood out, the reference to our nation as a democracy, but the rest was well worth reading)
