Jesus vs Satan

Updated: Jun 4

There seems to be a lot of confusion in the United States as to whether Jesus is on your side or not on your side of any given argument. Whether you like it or not, the United States was founded on vague Christian concepts and certain governmental structures found in Europe.



So let's take race out of it and answer fundamental questions about the United States based on the Bible.



Does Jesus approve of a cop kneeling on a citizen's neck until he dies? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of non-violent protests? Yes he does.

Does Jesus approve of society run by billionaires? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of billionaires? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of shutting down non-essential businesses to protect the sick and the elderly from disease? Yes he does.

Does Jesus approve of abortion? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of single-parent households? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of divorce? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of keeping a weapon in your house to protect your family? Yes he does.

Does Jesus approve of marching down the street with your weapon in hand? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of free speech? Yes he does.

Does Jesus approve of the principle that More Money=More Speech? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of immigration? Yes he does.

Does Jesus approve of other faiths? It depends.

Does Jesus approve of parents as role models? Yes he does.

Does Jesus approve of millionaire actors and athletes as role models? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of tradesmen being role models? Yes he does.

Does Jesus approve of pornography? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of drug abuse? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of the preacher making millions? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of the majority of American Pop Culture? No, he does not.

Does Jesus approve of.....


We can go on like this all day long, but we'll stop there.

What I'm trying to say is that if Jesus were here today, he would be pissed. Are there exceptions to every rule? Absolutely. You're yelling at me that you're an agnostic? Ah, that's the whole point of the article.


The United States is a government, not a church. Not every American believes what you or I believe. There are many different levels of religious belief from Christian Zealot to Satanist and a whole spectrum in between.


If you don't care about Jesus, that is your prerogative. Let me be clear here, all I am saying is that you can't say things like "Jesus wants me to do pornography," then cite the Bible.

"Jesus would support my abortion." Really? You might have skimmed over a lot of very important Bible verses. "Jesus supports my governmental administration." Uh, not by using the Bible as a prop, he doesn't. America has to be run for all citizens.


Jesus preached a certain set of values which is your choice to follow or ignore. What is happening today is that people think they are good and then are trying to impose their values on Christ. That is backwards. In the United States, you have religious freedoms guaranteed to you by the Constitution, but just because you think you're good in your own mind, doesn't mean that you are following the teachings of Christ.


You know what Satan says? Keep on rioting, looting, and judging others by the color of their skin.


Editor's Note:

Fred is barely a religious scholar. His minor at Cleveland State University was in Religious Studies, but the focus of the program was more about the Historical Jesus than any deep theological discussions.
