President Emanuel Macron said that nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism, that they are exact opposites. Whaaaaat? Sir, you seem to be confused.
Just to be sure it was not I that is confused; I looked up both words. I was right; they are synonyms. They mean virtually the same thing. Both have to do with a deep love for one’s country. Perhaps President Macron meant, that nationalism is a betrayal of globalism.
Globalism basically abandons principle in the search for “peace at all costs”. I have news for world leaders: there are some things that are worth fighting for. “Peace above all” is for timid souls, who are unconcerned with the One Who made heaven and earth.
Imagine a world that gives murderous Islam its way, because we want them to stop killing people. Pathetic! Imagine weakening our principles just to get along with Communists, and all in the name of “no war”. Imagine compromise with dictators, who care nothing for their people and are all about promoting their selves. Now there is a world that is putrifying!
In such a world, we can all hold hands and rock back and forth to the music of “I have no backbone and am willing to sacrifice all that is holy.” In such a world, nothing is special. In such a world, the line between good and evil has been blurred so badly, that govil is the new desire of nations: we all live and then lay down in the dust without any meaning or hope of anything better. How very dull.
Lucifer, hater of nations, does exist. Going into denial will never change this reality. Because Satan exists, there is a wrecking phenomena designed to undermine the Creator’s creation. There is also the “power of choice”, that has been granted to all people for the sole purpose of choosing sides: you can either follow the Creator and His Son, or you can follow the destroyer. War is inevitable BECAUSE, stopping evil requires blood sacrifice.
So Mr. Macron, you obviously do not understand, that globalism is worthless. On the face, world peace (aka globalism) seems noble, but we see by close examination, it is nothing more than appeasing the destroyers of everything good. I personally want nothing to do with such a world. I choose the Creator and His Son every time.
Globalism is the betrayal of Almighty God period!
