The Great Satan

The Arabs refer to the US as the Great Satan and most of the world hates the US as well.  Americans often wonder why the world hates us so much.  They can reason that the Little Satan, Israel, is hated because they are Jews surrounded by sea of Arab enemies.  However, they are puzzled by the almost universal hatred for Americans.  America is surrounded by water, not hostile neighbors.  Americans lead the world in generosity and giving to disasters of all kinds.  American liberal minded citizens blame our foreign policy and support for Israel as the reason for the world’s hatred.  This may be part of the blame, but I believe the answer is deeper than that.

America was founded on Inalienable rights given to man by God.  The whole concept of our government was freedom.  Freedom to worship God as each man saw fit.  The country was founded by God fearing people that left tyrannical countries to find freedom to live righteously.  Because of the sacrifice our ancestors made and the government they established, the US is filled with God fearing people.

The world hates the US for its heritage of faith and freedom.  It hates the US because it is filled with God’s people, both Christians and Jews.  As long as we as a nation stand for God and what is right, the world will continue its hatred towards us.  And if we continue on our current path to be like the rest of the world, our own government will hate the righteous remnant.  The evil taking over the world is seeking to establish a New World Order where Bible believing people are not welcome and will not be tolerated.  In the end God defeats and destroys the evil and the system it is trying to establish.  In the meantime, it is up to us to remain faithful to God and the freedoms He gave us!
