The nations are in an uproar

“The Nations are in an uproar”

The beginning of Psalm 2 is as true today as it was when it was written thousands of years ago. 
    1 ¶  Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing?
    2  The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,
    3  "Let us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!"

Why are the nations in an uproar?  Because they think that God is restricting their freedom, how can they do what is good and expedient for the people if they are restricted by a moral code.  So they want to tear off the fetters and cast away the cords of this code so that they may do what they need to do.  After all they have been educated in our universities and are well read.  They can make good decisions that will benefit the people apart from God and His Word.  We see from recent history, as well as further back, how well they have done.  All we have to do is look at Russia, China, Germany... we do not even know how many people have been killed in the name of man’s goodness and the good of the masses.  The number is staggering, in the tens of millions if not more.  All in the name of doing good and keeping control of the masses.  That is a far cry from the restrictive nature of the Word, Love God and Love others.

I am aware the there have been foolish and misguided ventures in the name of Christ, but they will never match the atrocites caused by Atheism and its systems.  Even the pro-choice movement has destroyed tens of millions of little one as well as the psyches  of the women who have been violated by the lie that it is just tissue.  It grieves me to hear of people that I know spew the hate towards God, and not just any god, but the God of the Bible and think that those who have come to grips with their fallen humanity are ignorant fools.  I pray for them.  But we need to do more than pray.  We need to extend mercy and compassion towards them, we need to love them.  It may be the only true mercy and compassion that they will ever know. 

They may scoff at the notion of a God who is in heaven and those who trust in Him, but the Psalmist tells us that God is not threatened by their disbelief or their foolishness. Verse 4,  “He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them.”  He has already installed the King on the throne.  We have no reason to fear when our trust is in Him.  Let us get on with loving business at hand.
