Erica Greider's Tweets

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because[a] narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."
Matthew 7:13-14

But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? 47 Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: 48 He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.[a] 49 But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell.[b] And the ruin of that house was great.
Luke 6:46-49

"And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."
John 3:19

As the blogger who witnessed the Hail Satan chants, multiple people have sent us copies of tweets from Texas Monthly Senior Editrix Erica Greider:

Cahnman's Musings has nothing to say about the politics of Mrs. Grieder's tweets; Erica Greider's politics speaks for itselfWe met her last January and found her to be diligent and fair.  Mrs. Greider's tweets, however, illustrate the spiritual reality behind this legislative fight.

The day after Wendy Davis' filibuster, we wrote about the spiritual deception driving most of the pro-abortion crowd.  Mrs. Grieder's tweets are an example of that deception.  If Mrs. Grieder understood Satan, she wouldn't joke about him.

A Hollywood film, the Ususal Suspects, explains it well:

Mrs. Grieder might not believe Satan exists, but what if she's wrong?!?

During the 7th century B.C., the Prophet Jeremiah wrote:

God’s Warning Rejected

12 And they said, “That is hopeless! So we will walk according to our own plans, and we will every one obey the dictates of his evil heart.”
13 Therefore thus says the Lord:
“Ask now among the Gentiles,
Who has heard such things?
The virgin of Israel has done a very horrible thing.
14 Will a man leave the snow water of Lebanon,
Which comes from the rock of the field?
Will the cold flowing waters be forsaken for strange waters?
15 “Because My people have forgotten Me,
They have burned incense to worthless idols.
And they have caused themselves to stumble in their ways,
From the ancient paths,
To walk in pathways and not on a highway,
16 To make their land desolate and a perpetual hissing;
Everyone who passes by it will be astonished
And shake his head.
17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy;
I will show them[a] the back and not the face
In the day of their calamity.”
 Cahnman's Musings finds it tragic that Mrs. Grieder buys into the same spiritual deception as all the other orange shirt people.  That deception manifests itself in a misplaced pride that suggests there is a constitutional right to consequence free sex.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  You're free to engage in sexual activity, but if that sexual activity results in the creation of new life, then that new life deserves legal protection.  Cahnman's Musings urges Mrs. Grieder to repent of such absurdities while she can.

The bottom line for Mrs. Grieder, just like everyone, is that God loves her.  God loves her so much that He sent His only Son to die a sacrificial death for her on a Roman Cross.  It's a free gift, but she has to say yes.  If she says yes, she will receive God's Holy Spirit who will bring spiritual understanding.  The Holy Spirit can certainly clarify any misconceptions about why Satan is bad, why there is no constitutional right to sex without consequences, and why new life resulting from sexual activity deserves legal protection Mrs. Greider might have.

Or Mrs. Greider could consciously reject a Loving God in favor of the empty philosophies of this world; it's her eternity, not ours....
