In his book, "The Truth War," John MacArthur writes that one of the distinguishing qualities of every true believer is love for the truth:
The reverse is true of those who will not enter the kingdom of God. Thus, the primary characteristic of those who perish (2 Thessalonians 2:10) is non-submission to and hatred of truth:
Pride is the perfect anti-God attitude that transformed Lucifer into Satan, thus the spirit that rejects or holds truth in contempt is aligned with the will of Satan:
In "Against the Heathen," early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and a haughty spirit preceded the fall of pre-flood men into idolatry, superstition and violence. Violence always accompanies man's fall into worship of self, selfish ambition, status, sexual pleasures and acquisition of things.
Violence is the effect of a human will (i.e., Cain) not in submission to the will of God. Violence is the use of force, which may be psychological (i.e., propaganda, fear, terror), physical harm or both, to dominate, control, outrage or transgress the dignity and integrity of a righteous man (i.e., Abel) in his physical and spiritual welfare.
From the time of Cain, violence has been perpetrated by proud, truth-hating, self-centered individuals and organized groups as a way of attaining their selfish objectives. In our own age individuals such as Alinsky and his disciples, and organized groups such as Globalists, Democrats, LGBTQ+, BLM, and antifa are just a few examples of proud, truth-hating, violence prone, individuals and organized groups.
Then there is this:
In "The Taproot of Violence," Vincent P. Micelli, S.J., writes that the cause of the violence washing over the West and America is modern man's rebellion against and attack upon the Lord our God,
The sin of pride begets the vice known as hatred of truth. Hatred of truth leads to many other sins such as resentment, rage, and vengeance. However, the most demonic sin is the arrogant action whereby the creature (i.e., Buddha, Karl Marx, Darwin, Nietzsche, Freud) attempts to rearrange God's hierarchy of being and values into an order which the creature prefers to the plan of God:
The darkened, upside down, violence prone, spiritually desolate atmosphere of our age is the "death of God" made tangible, and it is the self-described antichrist, the German philosopher Nietzsche, who foresaw and foretold the coming beast of violence.
Nietzsche knew man's rebellion against the Christian God that began during the Renaissance was tantamount to man's assassination of the God of Revelation and seizure for himself the role of being his own God. But for man to be his own God necessitated the conceptual murder of God and willful rejection of His revealed truth.
Nietzsche understood that this decision opted for a life of violence and in 'Joyful Wisdom" he asks,
Four years later Nietzsche expounded further on the 'most important of recent events---that God is dead:'
Nietzsche's demonic prophecy is immeasurably tragic because he knows that apostate Christians have themselves killed Jesus Christ. This accounts for the sacred dread he experiences over the oncoming cataclysmic wars he envisions advancing across Europe and the whole world.
Nietzsche clearly saw that nihilism (hatred of truth resulting in meaninglessness and spiritual emptiness) is inevitably connected to violence unleashed by the decomposition of Christianity and everything built upon its' foundation.
Apostate Christians 'conceptually' killed Jesus Christ, and their Big Lie was the beginning of the inevitable catastrophic violence that swept over Russia and Germany, eventuating in the murder of 100,000,000+ men, women, and children which drew the West and America into wars that took the lives of hundreds of thousands of soldiers.
For over two hundred years, godless, truthless ideologies have been working their way through Western and American culture and the undiscerning church, embedding themselves often unconsciously, within our minds (spirit).
This means that not only is the way we see ourselves and America colored by godlessness and lies, but to the degree that our minds have been polluted are we immobilized by nihilism, the spiritual emptiness in agreement with Pilate, who said, 'who can know truth?'
Our age is an age when the very idea of truth is attacked and scorned, even within the church where Christians, clergy, and church leaders ought to revere truth most highly but instead boast of thinking outside the box, of not being restricted by rules, and in the spirit of Emergent Church leader Brian McLaren, of having "captured, stuffed, and mounted truth on the wall." (MacArthur, p. x)
The church is supposed to be "the pillar and ground of the truth (1 Tim. 3:15)" said MacArthur, yet today's contemporary, increasingly worldly church---spanning the entire denominational spectrum-- expresses a high level of discomfort with any hint of certainty.
But to refuse to acknowledge and defend the revealed truth of God said MacArthur,
As Athanasius makes clear, the corollary to the outright rejection and/or contempt of the revealed truth of the Lord our God is the fall of man because the primary characteristic of those who perish is non-submission to the revealed truth of God. Such are the rebels who do not do "the will of my Father who is in heaven."

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
