God has shown us how to thrive, and we thrive when we attempt to follow His laws, and embrace Him. Doing so negates and makes impotent those who would presume to be kings. Adapt to God's fixed laws of nature, no less fixed than gravity, and thrive. Fail to adapt to them -- and perish. Heathen rage resents and rejects God's laws. It's like they're saying, "I think I'll ignore gravity today because it's a stupid law, and I'm going to shortcut to the liquor store by jumping from this building instead of taking the stairs."
It leads to death.
I am an Anglo-Saxon Heathen. I attempt to (as authentically as possible) practice the native religion that was in existence for thousands of years in northern Europe before the Romans co-opted the foreign Middle Eastern Jewish religion and spread it over Europe.
