If you've been reading this blog since at least the beginning of this year, you're probably aware of what I call the Witch Test.
Social media these days is rife with concern trolls who shill for Death Cult shibboleths while using Christian doctrines as handy clubs to browbeat Christians. Sometimes they claim to be Christian themselves.
All the Witch Test does is call the impostor's bluff by challenging him to do what every Christian is commanded to do: publicly profess faith in Jesus Christ.
Several applications of the test by myself and others have yielded two more or less typical reactions depending upon the type of subject being tested.
LEFTOID: Sure, Justin Trudeau wore blackface, but doesn't the Bible say not to judge?
CHRISTIAN: Proclaim that Jesus is the Christ, and God has raised Him from the dead.
DEATH CULTIST: *sputtering* *evasions* *soon runs away*
WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING: Instead of wasting time pushing to outlaw abortion, we should work for the ordination of female deacons!
PATRIARCH OF THE WEST: Confess faith in Jesus Christ, true God and true man.
MOLOCH WORSHIPER: Who do you think you are? I owe my confession to no one but God* alone!
*Neglects to mention that he means Ashtoreth.
What makes the Witch Test so effective is a remarkable phenomenon observed in every application of the test to date. Even though the Death Cultist could simply lie and make a false profession of faith, he somehow never does.
Again, no test subject has, to my knowledge, yet said, "Yeah, I believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now let's get back to discussing why you're a vile bigot for refusing to celebrate Drag Queen Story Hour."
