The False Prophets of Optimism

Conservative leaders today are rejoicing over the out come of last nights 2009 election victories that have taken place. Many of the conservative leaders and their base are touting that they can see the light at the end of the tunnel and are optimistic. Last night’s victories are quite encouraging in light of the past shellacking that conservatism and the Republican Party have taken but they are the last struggling convulsions of a nation on the precipice of total collapse.

The absolute reality is that the conservative, optimistic ideal cannot support the excessive weight of the current crises and realities at hand. This fact must be recognized and accepted by the conservative right in this country. The current crises are reaching gigantic proportions - both nationally and globally. The good intentions and well wishes of this flawed ideology (Conservative optimism) has had its place in the past, but now in light of the global climate affected by ever-increasing human depravity, it is but a “spider’s web” of hope (Job 8:14). For harnessing the unbridled passions of fallen humanity (i.e., the opening of “Pandora’s Box"), there is nothing to do to bring them back again. Pandora’s Box was cracked open at the Fall of Man in Eden’s Garden (Genesis 3), but since the 60’s the lid has been completely removed. In this outworking of lawlessness, this movement has corrupted and contaminated the United States and the whole earth (Matt 24:12; 1 Tim. 4:1-2; 2 Tim. 3:1-7).

Men like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hanity, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck etc; today have become the False Prophets of Optimism and hope. Multitudes look to their leadership, direction and optimistic appraisal in light of today’s culture, society and D.C.’s ever tightening grip on our nation (Romans 8:4-5,1 Cor. 2:14,James 3:15).
