Anonymous Satanists

I'm coining a new term today. Lots of people are familiar with the term "anonymous Christianity." This is basically the theory that people who have never heard of Christ or even who have explicitly rejected Him could still be saved through a general orientation of their lives toward Christian values. While I frankly believe the notion to be rife with Pelagianism and fundamental option morality, the only thing relevant to the discussion at the moment is this basic 30,000 foot definition.

In my opinion, there is a problem with the willingness to consider anonymous Christianity without also being willing to consider its opposite number, namely, anonymous Satanism, a phenomenon which utterly saturates our world but is largely ignored. It's getting harder to look the other way, though, as we are given more and more examples of its workings every day.

I doubt very much that the Planned Parenthood folks that we've seen on these videos or the politicians who support them believe in Satan. There's a better than average chance they don't believe in God. 

However, there can be no question about whom they serve. They serve the Prince of Darkness. Sure, they may have never even heard of him. They are more than likely to prideful to admit they serve anyone (other than "the people" of course). They would no doubt claim to reject him if asked about it.

That shouldn't matter. Whether they admit it or not, he is their master, and we shouldn't have a problem saying so.

With this as the case, as hard as it may be, we must pray for these evil people. They are consumed by darkness and are so depraved as to enjoy their status. Ultimately, they are in the grip of the Evil One, and our willingness to ignore that is a shame.
