Supremacism is a concept that will be important in the future.
This concept will provide the justification necessary to outlaw
belief in the Bible. An internet dictionary defines supremacism
Supremacism - the belief that some particular group or race is
superior to all others.
Wikipedia takes it one important step further:
Supremacism is the worldview that a particular age, race, species,
ethnicity, religion, gender, social class, ideology, nation, or culture
is superior to other variations of that trait, and advocates those
who identify with it to dominate, control, and subjugate those
who do not.
Can you identify the false dichotomy? By the first definition,
Bible-believers are supremacists. They believe that only Jesus is
able to save souls and that all other beliefs are incorrect and
therefore inferior. This is what the Bible says:
For by [Christ] were all things created, that are in heaven, and that
are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or
dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by
him, and for him: and he is before all things, and by him all things
Most people donít believe the Bible and are ignorant of its content
and message. The Bible makes clear that all are sinners. The Bible
also makes clear that the desire for personal superiority over
others is a poor goal (see Mark 9:35, for example). Yet it is the
second definition, the definition proposed by Wikipedia, that will
be used to imprison Christians in the future.
Jesus was very clear about the motivation for all of this:
He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
