The Four Horsemen of the Godless Apocalypse

“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.”

— Psalm 14:1

There are “four horsemen” of the godless apocalypse, who have done so much to intellectually create the society in which we live today. It begins with philosophy, then impacts the culture, and then moves to everyday people and to the politicians.

Freud’s views of man totally changed the thinking of the vast majority in our modern age and gave a picture of man totally at odds with the previously held biblical picture. Marx, the second horseman, through his writings brought so much evil upon the world—leading to the deaths of more than 100 million people in his effort to create “the worker’s paradise.”

Of course, there was Darwin, whose views of the origin of the species and biology affected not only biology, but all of the sciences, then all of the social sciences, and then almost all of life itself. The Nazi Holocaust was based on their interpretation of Darwinism, leading them to try to create a “Master Race”—killing millions of the supposed inferiors in the process.

Then finally there was Nietzsche and his book Übermensch (Superman), which also added fuel to the super race notion of Hitler. Nietzsche coined the phrase “God is dead.”

But those four horsemen have largely been thrown to the ground. All of these men built their philosophy on practical atheism, but those who deny God only show themselves to be fools.

O Lord Jesus, even though these “four horsemen” have been largely discredited, we see pagan religions and Islam coming in like a flood. Only You can give our society another chance to return to You…
