Socratic Paradox - If everyone is out to do what they believe is in their own good, then how can evil exist? Secular Humanists believe they are doing good. Christians believe they are doing good. Bruce Jenner believed he was doing good. Are they all not good? How can anyone be evil? The answer to that is Satan exists. Satan is in the Old Testament. He is a liar and deceiver. He deceives man about what is in their best interests. Men ends up having false idols in their hearts. These false idols could be false beliefs or ideologies that blind them to God. Things they love more than God. God is Holy and Separate from sin, so falling away from God is a slippery slope that can lead to increasing Evil and Wickedness.
"Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I let them inquire of me at all?" (Ezekiel 14:3)
An Apocalypse in the Greek is an opening of the eyes. A tearing away of the veil from hidden things. Many people may have accepted lies. These lies give them a false perspective on reality and God.
Has someone ever lied to you? A woman or a friend? Someone lies to you and you just accept it or trust them, then you are in The Dark. You are believing something that is not true. That mean that you are in Darkness like you are in a Cave or The Allegory of The Cave. In Christianity, Jesus is the shining light of the world. He leads people out of the Darkness and into The Light. (Ephesians 5:8)(1 Thessalonians 5:5)
Many Christian Nations are now Secular Humanist Nations. Secular Humanism is Luciferian.
Luciferian - They believe that God is evil or the dark and that Lucifer or man is good and the light. That man can find his own way without God. It could be man worshiping himself.
Are there Migration problems in nations formally Christian? Yes. They prostituted themselves with false idols and foreign nations. Nothing new happens under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9-18)
