Purge: A disturbing idea – From a Christian view
I recently watch the movie The Purge, and what I saw there was frightening and disturbing. The movie is set in 2022, where crime and unemployment are at an all-time low in the United Sates. To keep order, the government has sanctioned one night a year for citizens to "purge" themselves. During this twelve hour period, all crime is allowed and the emergency services and police are off-duty. This is an opportunity for people to get their aggressions out any way they need to, whether it be looting, murdering, or some other means. Today it might just be a movie but tomorrow it will be a reality of nations who want to be Godless, now that frightens me completely. Because I can see that we are heading fast down that road.
I am writing this from a Christian perspective, and I know a lot of people will not see what is truly happening in this world. First we started with how the bible is outdated, and people have called for the removal of the bible from schools and other public institutes, then we went to legalized abortion, and now we are allowing gay people to get married, we live in a time where everything and everyone has a right, except God our Creator. Nothing is scared anymore, not even a life and that puts a chill down my spine. Soon God will be removed so far from everything, that people will feel no sense of accountability and responsibility and will do whatever seems right in their own eyes. Already people of the world have trouble with words like evil and sin, maybe soon they will be removed from the dictionary and then we will not have any words to explain the wicked things people are doing. Someone already said on the comment section of N24 that evil does not exist but that it is merely a perception of a certain society.
We are removing everything good from society and only to replace it with pure evil, and call it “rights”. How much longer before a murderer and rapist start calling the very evil acts they perform as their rights, and then it won’t be long before nations start using ideas like “purge” to justify the rights of murderers and rapist. Christians are already told to keep their religion private and it won’t be long before we are banned from sharing the message and then we will be persecuted and killed. We are people that are calling for godless nations.
Truly a war has gone out against God.
