The hate in the Kavanaugh / Ford / Swetnick fight largely centers on religion. If God will cast into hell those who don't lift a finger to stop abortionists from killing the unborn, then you want to push for pro-life laws. The hardcore pro-choicers hate that God and say pro-lifers are Nazis who deserve to be strangled with coathangers, so, naturally there's lots of rage over the abortion laws. More
Is the USA headed toward Civil War #2? The abortion issue is the napalm fueling most of the hate. Pro-choicers are driven by rage, rage at thought of lots of women dying in back-alley abortions if Roe v. Wade is overturned. If Roe goes, and if lots and lots of women die in botched abortions, then, in the eyes of pro-choicers, pro-lifers will be super vile and mega-evil, thus the rage and the furious energy which fuels the pro-choice side of Civil War #2.
Now, on the pro-life side, as we know, not all pro-lifers are religious. But most are. At the heart of Christian pro-life logic is the logic which says: You're insane if you think you will go to heaven when you refuse to help save millions of unborn babies killed every year by abortionists. You're insane! You're whacked out of your mind if you think, at the Last Judgment, recall Revelation 20.12-15, that you will escape being tossed into a lake of fire when you refuse to lift a finger to help the millions of unborn babies who are killed every year by the knives of the pro-choicers. You are certifiably insane if you think you can do evil anti-Christian things, and refuse to repent, and then expect go to heaven. So, that's the main reason why most pro-lifers are pro-lifers.
Christians of course, must love and pray for our enemies, and we must bridle our tongues or else our religion is useless, recall James 1. 26, though these teachings have a way of being forgotten more often than not.
Rock Island looks at issues concerning churches under the sign of the cross. Do one, some, or all churches under the cross lead people to heaven? Do some or all churches under the cross drag souls down to perdition?
In Matthew 16.13-19 Jesus says He founded His Church on a rock and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. If you say the gates of hell have not prevailed against the Roman Catholic Church, if you say Rome is God's True Church and Christianity is whatever the Popes say it is, because the Popes have inherited the power to bind and loose, then some will say you have been led astray by the devil and are a slave of the devil! But then if you say the gates of hell have prevailed against the Roman Catholic Church, and therefore Rome leads people away from heaven and drags them down to perdition, then other people will say you are a slave of the devil.
Many Protestants say lots of different churches lead people to heaven, including the Roman Catholic Church. We have a Case 1 - These Protestants are right, and we have a Case 2 - These Protestants are wrong. If the gates of hell have prevailed against the Roman Catholic Church, if Rome is lost in heresy and leads people to perdition, then those Protestants who say Rome leads people to heaven are preaching an evil heresy: they are helping to push Roman Catholics into perdition when they should be trying to help Roman Catholics find the road to heaven. It is evil to tell people who are on the road to perdition that they don't need to change, because they are on the road to heaven, when in fact they are on the road to perdition. If the gates of hell have prevailed against Rome, if Rome leads people to perdition, then Protestants, or anyone else, who says Rome leads people to heaven, have been led astray by the god of this world, satan.
If you have the new covenant and Divine Law prophesied in Jeremiah 31. 31-34 and mentioned by Christ at the Last Supper, Matthew 26. 28, written on your heart, then you would know if the gates of hell have or have not prevailed against some church, any church, such as Rome, or such as some Protestant church. You would know what is sacrilege and what isn't sacrilege. You would know what is heresy and what isn't heresy. But if you don't have the Divine Law written on your heart, then you're lost, and the god of this world will lead you straight to perdition, 2 Corinthians 4. 4, if you are lost.
