During the Cold War, America and the West resisted “godless Communism” at every turn. Ultimately, America and the West prevailed – most notably through the leadership of Ronald Reagan and the ultimate symbolic destruction of the Berlin Wall.

Yes, as bad off as Kim Davis finds herself in a godless democracy, she is better off than she would have been under godless communism. But given the direction things are going, and the speed at which they’re going, how much longer will that remain true?
Godless democracy leads to the same place that godless communism leads – godlessness.
And if it is with difficulty that the righteous is saved, what will become of the godless man and the sinner? – 1 Peter 4:18
Therefore, let us pursue godliness, lest we be swept away with the rest.
