At a news event outside the federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon, an Antifa activist got applause from the crowd, including a Catholic priest, when she said she is organizing for the abolition of the United States. “My name is Lilith Sinclair, and I am an Afro-Indigenous non-binary local organizer here in Portland, organizing for the abolition of not just the militarized police state, but also the United States that we know” (@MrAndyNgo, July 19, 2020). (Non-binary refers to transsexualism.) Sinclair also identified herself as a “sex worker.” Antifa has been rioting night after night for two months in Portland, causing tens of millions of dollars in damage and many bodily injuries, including the vicious assault of a street preacher. Daryl Turner, head of the Portland Police Association, said, “The elected officials have condoned the destruction and chaos.” The Democratic city government refuses to let the police arrest the leaders and shut down the riots, trying to shift blame to federal agents who are tasked with guarding federal property. Ultimately, Antifa is at war with God and His holy laws, and that is a no-win situation. We recommend repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ before it is too late. The Bible describes the future of all evildoers. “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be (Psalm 37:1-10).
