Christ Haters: The American Sadducees

Credit: Jim Padgett

In Jesus’ day, there were two main political parties which ran Israel under Rome’s oppressive reign. One was the Sadducee party and the other the Pharisee party. Both groups claimed to represent the Law of Moses and have the best interests of the people of Israel in mind. These two parties had opposing political and religious views and were at the opposite ends of the religious and political spectrum. In all honesty they both had little power under Rome’s iron hand, but that never stopped these two parties from trying to gain – the gentile occupied population of Israel’s – favor and popularity. However, there was one event that would unanimously unite these two polar opposites. Their common bond was the rejection of Almighty God’s Messiah and RIGHTEOUSNESS (Matt 3:7,16:6, 27:20, Mark 3:6, 11:18,14:53-56).

The Sadducee’s Party

The Sadducee’s Party was the progressive liberal party of that day (as it were). This group held the chief position of power by controlling the office of chief priests and the High Priest’s office (Acts 4:1-3, 5:17). The Sadducee’s are identified – in the Holy Scriptures – by their ideological position of fully rejecting the prophetic prophesy of the Old Testament and the resurrection of the dead (Mark 12:18, Acts 23:8). The Sadducee’s also rejected the existence of Almighty God’s higher intelligences (i.e., angelic hosts) and were greatly opposed to the Pharisees, which held a more fundamental adherence to the Law and the resurrection (Acts 23:6-8). When it came to these fundamental issues these two parties were polar opposites.

The Sadducees practiced and propagated a godless and secular Judeo theory (an evolutionary theory as it were) that there was NO after life or FINAL judgment or accountability to Almighty God in death (Mark 12:18, Acts 23:8, Heb 9:27). It is wise to take note that whenever any people or nation hold to this kind of godless philosophy a, “Macavellian, Do as thou wilt” philosophy expect to find these individuals only to be pleasure seekers, ruthless and cruel task masters to any people (Psalm 14:1-3, Rom. 3:10-23, 2 Tim. 3:1-7). For such are they who seek to obtain the godless pleasures of this “little” life to their full excess. That is why NO laws or restraint will ever hold them back from achieving all that their sinful and corrupt heart desires (Eccl. 2, Rom. 1:18-32, 2 Tim. 3:1-7, Jude 1:10-13). These deceive themselves and reap for themselves the whirlwind in the Day of Wrath (Rev. 20:11-15). Jesus’ greatest rebuke to the Leftist Sadducee’s of His day was, “Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?” (Mark 12:24). Do the Sadducees sound like a current American political party!

The lawlessness, folly and arrogance of the Sadducees was that the reality of the Word of God was complete foolishness to them (Rom. 1:16-32). In their out right rejection of the Law and of the Prophets they led and deceived their followers and nation to crucifying the Messiah of the World (Isa. 53, Dan. 9:26, Matt. 16:6,11, John 19:6-16), damning not only themselves but their followers as well into ETERNAL perdition of unbelief and rebellion (Rev. 20:11-15). The Sadducees reduced and stripped the Word of Almighty God down to a mere secular godless formality of religious traditions and rejected the reality of its most fundamental truths. As the Sadducees continuallyrejected the Law of Moses they reaped the social and moral consequences that they so despised until 70 AD when they were scattered by Rome and dissolved. Dear friend, does any of this sound familiar?

The Parallels in Comparison to the American Left

Like American Left of today, these “elite” politicians of Christ’s day had their own self  gratifying, well being, interest, security and narcissistic agenda in mind before the good of the people. Their office and position was an open door to further their godless “happiness” and acquisition of power (Matt. 16:2-4; 11-12). Because the leaders and members of the Sadducees party outright rejected the reality of Almighty God’s fundamental realities, Day of Judgment and the resurrection of the dead, this made them greatly open to demonic influence (2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2:1-2, 2 Tim. 3:1-7). Their godless minds opened the doors for them to be Satan’s tools for manipulating the people and seeking the destruction and eradication of a godly good that could have helped their people (Matt. 27:20, Luke 23:18, John 19:15). In the end, their passionate jealousy of and hatred towards the reality of the Law of Moses (Rom. 10:2-4) and Almighty God’s ETERNAL sovereignty would lead to the political manipulation of the masses and scandalous murder and assassination of the promised Savior, Messiah and King of Israel during the height of the oldest and greatest feast of Israel, the Passover (Dan.9:26, Matt. 27:25, Mark 15:9-11, John 19:15, Acts 2:13:28).

There are many parallels to the Sadducees of Jesus’ day with the progressive liberal Left here inAmerica today. These in America (the Left) are also godless and lawless in all that they do and say. The Left’s foundations are built on secularism, the rejection of Divine absolutes, lies and hypocrisy. These Constitutional apostates and reprobates that love to sing “God Bless America”, state to the American people -when the time calls for it – “may God bless you” and even talk about Jesus and the Bible to push their secular socialistic agenda, but in their manner of living will contradict ALL that Almighty God and His Word stands for (2 Tim. 3:5). The Left’s extreme passion and underlying goal is to promote and lead the masses into the complete eradication (crucifixion as it were) of Judeo/Christianity, the Bible, its followers and the very Christ Himself (John 8:44). These secular reprobates are no different in their ideology then those of the Sadducee party of Jesus’ day. Satan always has his lawless reprobate minions in position for the delusional furtherance of the destruction of the TRUTH of ALMIGHTY GOD (Matt. 7:15; 13 Rom. 3:10-23, Jude 1:10).

The American Left here in America today also “does greatly err”, because (THEY) ALSO know NOT the Scriptures, neither the power of God?” The parallels of these two groups – the American Left and the Sadducees of Christ’s day – are incredible.

What is also amazing is that both of these two groups lived in a POST Judeo/Christian culture of their time and both groups out right manifested their full rejection and hostility towards foundational truths (i.e., the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God). Sadly many then and today (Bible scholars, politicos and the masses) have a short sighted understanding and perception of the doctrine and ideologies of the Sadducees of Jesus day and of that of the American Left of today. There is nothing new under the sun (Eccl. 1:9) as Solomon of old stated as led by the Holy Ghost. All lawlessness and godless rebellion is just repackaged and sold by Lucifer to a new and clueless generation as a new bill of goods. The countless varieties and flavors that Lucifer markets still have his same godless goal and agenda in mind… His self worship and 666 godless global state (Isa. 12-12-15, 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 13).
The Future of the American Sadducees
The “American” Sadducees (aka. the Left) are absolutely hell bent on transforming this country in the “spirit of Anti Christ” which fulfillment is to come (Dan. 7:25, 2 Thes. 2:3-12, Rev. 13). Our nation was founded on the solid bedrock of Judeo/Christian absolutes. Today more than ever, we can see what these absolutely despise and abhor; moral absolutes, the Bible, Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS and the ETERNAL Person and Character of Almighty God. They hate with a burning passion conservatism (which is the application of the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God and the best ideology for containing the unbridled passions of man and maintaining social order) and are insanely enraged by those who adhere to the Bible and hold a fundamental position of the Holy Scriptures, the Day of Judgment, salvation of man in Jesus Christ ALONE, and Divine accountability (John 17:14, Rom. 1:18-32). For they know deep in the darkened regions of their rebellious heart of hearts that these things will come to pass and that they will give a FULL account in that Day to Almighty God their Creator and Judge (Rom. 1:32, Phil. 2:10, Rev. 20:11-15).

Even today – with a zealous zeal – the lawless Left engages in a slanderous campaign in lashing out against the Bible (the Word of Almighty God) and towards the followers of Jesus Christ (John 17:14). Much like the Sadducees of Jesus time, these believe that this world is all there is and they do not want any to upset their delusional “brief” godless apple cart.

As our country and world in which we are living today is presently rejecting the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God at a super alarming rate, expect the violence, decadence, carnage and oppression to reach EXPONENTIAL proportions towards conservatives and believers in the King of Kings (Psalm 2, Rev. 6-16). This lawless movement of Anti Christ is already at work and it will reach its climatic lawless pinnacle coming up shortly in God’s “day of wrath” under the 666 global reign of the Anti Christ (1 Thess. 5:3, 2 Thess. 2:3-13, 1 John 4:2-3, Rev. 13).
The “American” Sadducees (American Left) and the Sadducees of Jesus day – along with all of the political and religious ideologies of fallen man , whichabandon the absolute reality of Almighty God’s Divine sovereignty and redemptive remedies – will ALL one day give an account to Almighty God in that Day (Rev. 17:16-17, Rev. 20:11-15). They all will one Day come to the ETERNAL sobering realities that they full well rejected Almighty God’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes and will be accountable FOREVER to the very ETERNAL Divine Laws in which they warred against and scoffed against all of their temporal vain lives (Matt. 12:36, Rom. 14:11-12, Rev. 20:11-14).
After the crucifixion of Israel’s Messiah many of the Sadducees (who were serving priests in the Temple of God came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth (Acts 4:1-4, 6:7). It is our sincere desire that many of the American Sadducees will also do the same. When this finite worldly dog and pony  show (with a purpose) is over, ETERNITY will stand before each one of us. May it be that many cast aside their godless delusion for the Godly solution – which is rooted in reality – which is found ONLY in Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17, Rom. 6:23, Eph. 2:8-9).
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
