It sounds corny.
Ron DeSantis is saying something very important here though.
“Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) urged supporters over the weekend to “put on the full armor of God” in the continued battle against the political left.
“You got to be ready for battle, so put on the full armor of God. Take a stand against the left’s schemes. Stand firm with the belt of truth buckled around your waist. You will face fire from flaming arrows, but the shield of faith will protect you,” DeSantis told attendees at the Victory Dinner of the Sunshine Summit on Saturday evening in Hollywood, Florida.
As Christian Headlines previously reported, DeSantis made similar comments during a speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in February.
“We need people all over the country to be willing to put on that full armor of God to stand firm against the left,” he told attendees. “I can tell you this: In Florida, we will be standing our ground. We will be holding that line. We are not going to back down. … We have only begun to fight.” …”
I’ve brought this up many times over the years.
If you are a White evangelical Protestant and a born again Christian who has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, then why on earth do you fear being judged by “journalists”? Why are you afraid of these people attacking you with their little made up -isms and -phobias?
Do you share the same religion and moral beliefs with these people? Are these “journalists” who hate you good people or bad people? Are these people going to hell or not? How can people who are going to hell at the end of the day and who have all sorts of evil beliefs shame you? If so, why are you worried about them attacking you? Why do you care about the opinions of Jews and atheists?
I agree with what Ron DeSantis is saying here. You should get ready for battle and “put on the full armor of God.” You have the “belt of truth buckled around your waist.” Quit worrying about these “journalists” and their lies. You are a good person. They are a bunch of liars. Even your leaders like Trump and DeSantis are telling you not worry about what they say anymore. We’ve been saying that for years.
Anyway, that’s how I have always thought about it. I don’t care what these people think about me. They’re wrong. Most of them are also terrible people. I don’t give a shit what those people think of me. If I am being completely honest, I also enjoy defying them and undermining them.
Note: I can understand why Catholics blindly defer to authority, but Protestants? Come on, we’re better than this. No Protestant should care about getting “excommunicated” from the “respectable” politically correct secular mainstream synagogue consensus. No Protestant should grovel before these contemptible people or beg forgiveness from them. The idea that these people have some kind of moral halo is absurd!
