Are ancient parables indicative of what is taking place today in America and Western civilization?
A Christian America?, Part Two
When the gospel entered Western civilization, the gods departed. The lesser gods left the house. Monotheism and the Word ( the two hedges against the gods) were ascending over paganism. But as prophesied, if these things should be weakened or removed the departed spirits and ancient gods would return. America exchanged her God for Baal, a lesser god.
Who is Baal? Baal was Lord of rains and fertility, he represented increase, gain, and profit. Baal was believed to provide abundance to one’s fields and vineyards. The Old Testament is full of stories as Baal was called upon to challenge the God of Israel, YHWH. Frankie The Earthman.
