Shocking Statement Made by Jesus Applies Today

Social etiquette tells us that it is not very nice to call someone or something satanic.  The term “satanic” describes someone or something who belongs to Satan, or shares in his characteristics.

But our Lord Jesus was not shy in making this shocking statement and calling certain people satanic.  In His conversation with the Pharisees and scribes of His day, Jesus said to them:

John 8:44 “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!”

Jesus had to be harsh with these hyper-religious people of His day because they were representing Satan’s interests and opposing Jesus’s work of Redemption.  In fact, it was the truth which caused them to not believe!

This is a counterintuitive proposition, but on further analysis it proves the point that Jesus was making.  His opponents did not believe Jesus because He told them the truth, which consequently points to the fact that they belonged to the father of lies.

The same phenomenon is happening today with respect to the truth.

While the Holy Spirit is carrying out His work of Redemption, Satan is also carrying out his work of blinding people with respect to truth.

Not only do we have atheism, agnosticism, and other theisms opposing the Holy Spirit, we now have so-called Christian churches which no longer believe the Bible.  The Evangelical Lutheran Churches of America (4 million members) have just ordained their first openly gay bishop overseer covering a large segment of their church.  The Presbyterian Church USA (1.9 million members) has been accepting openly gay pastors for at least a couple of years.  These are acts of rebellion toward God.

It is a difficult statement to make, but certain members of the apostatic church today are exhibiting satanic behavior, that is they are representing Satan’s interests just like the religious leaders of Jesus’s time.

Delight in Truth is pointing out these developments because the authentic Church, the true Body of Christ across the world needs to realize the rapid decline in faith within the Christian establishment.  Jesus said that these events must occur, and He even wondered if there will be faith on Earth when He returns.

Because of this, the Church must be on guard and remain grounded in biblical truth.

Anti-Life Influence in the Obama Administration

John Holdren is an ultra-left wing progressivist who brings satanic influence into Obama’s administration.  He is a senior advisor to the president on issues related to science and technology.

This man is a strong advocate of depopulation.

The official definition of depopulation is “to remove or reduce the population of, as by destruction or expulsion.” (

His agenda is readily seen in official positions this administration has taken regarding their pro-abortion stance.  Contraception mandates, abortion coverage mandates, and intense support of Planned Parenthood are just some of the effects resulting from Holdren’s influence.

Read the following quotes by Holdren and be shocked at the level of disregard for life:

“Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.” — John P. Holdren, Ecoscience 1977.

“It would even be possible to require pregnant single women to marry or have abortions, perhaps as an alternative to placement for adoption, depending on the society.” — John P. Holdren, Ecoscience 1977.

“A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men.” — John P. Holdren, Ecoscience 1977.

“…no one may lawfully have more than one spouse at a time. Why should the law not be able to prevent a person from having more than two children?” — John P. Holdren, Ecoscience 1977.

Delight in Truth readers should not be surprised that the above statements can be classified as satanic.  They are satanic because they embody the spirit of death and abortion which is in stark contrast to the Spirit of Life which is one of the names for the Holy Spirit.

The Bible teaches that children are a gift from God and precious beyond description.  Children followed Jesus everywhere to the point that His disciples were annoyed by them.  But Jesus said “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matt 19:14)

And Psalm 127:3 says that “Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.”

Abortion is in every way antithetical to this position.

John Holdren holds a position that is in open rebellion against God on the issue of life, therefore it can be classified as satanic.  He talks about compulsory abortion, that is abortion that is required by law.  He endorses forced sterilization. He endorses a forced ceiling for the number of children one can have.

Christians in America, please realize that these are the people who are leading us!
