Why is God called "He" in the Bible? That's a very good question, and here's the answer:
Why is our modern world always on the brink of chaos and destruction? We know the answer. We worship many false gods; there are many creators making abominable things; we have countless laws which are contradictory; and too many judges with no integrity or knowledge. There is corruption of every kind and it is deep. Earth is a place where the worthless, ruthless and lightweight rise to the top.
There are some exceptions, of course. Some worthy people have some authority. But they face constant and stiff opposition, sometimes even death to accomplish worthwhile things.
There is very little agreement on how the world should be organized, and what its true purpose is. Should an elite class run it for their benefit, the way China, Russia, the EU and UN run their empires? Or should it be organized so that the best and brightest people of any class, ethnicity, or race have maximum opportunity to create and succeed individually? Many say, "Forget about it. Let's blow it on a good time." Your feelings about this are highly dependent on your wealth and status, which insulate you from the suffering of others.
Furthermore, should the moral codes of Judaeo-Christianity have ultimate power to decide questions of law and governance? Or are those traditional values, laws, rules, and methods outdated in our computer age?
For centuries this issue was largely settled, and the western world was the model for successful societies based on ethical monotheism; individual liberty, free markets, religious freedom, and human rights.
Wealth beyond the dreams of previous generations was created, and technology flourished. Electricity, motion pictures, steam transport around the globe, airplanes, automobiles, radio, and enormous advances in medicine and psychiatry were accomplished in one generation between 1840 and 1910. Machines did more and more of the drudgery people had to slog through before. Many thinkers preached that war was unnecessary and obsolete now that such prosperity and exciting technology was coming into use. Sadly, weapons also became vastly more effective.
Serious doubts about the meaning of life crept in at the end of the 19th Century, and the phrase "God is dead" became popular. Science and technology were more and more thought to be worthy successors to God.
Something went terribly wrong in the years leading up to 1914, and the psychosis (Link) of totalitarianism took root and flourished in the eastern hemisphere. Germany provoked WWI. In response to the war's chaos, Marxist communism began destroying human lives and freedoms in Russia, and began spreading to China and Southeast Asia. In reaction to this the Japanese Empire quickly rose in bloody opposition, followed by Germany and the Nazi Party. Judaeo-Christianity was being murdered by these hostile philosophies, and people of faith suffered most. They were targeted for being "uncooperative... undesirable."
By the end of the 20th Century, over 100 million people had died in secular wars and persecution. Perhaps a billion were wounded physically or psychologically. More people died in these secular, anti-theistic wars than died in all the previous religious wars of human history combined.
Today more than ever we worship the false gods of power, money, sex, youth, science, and reason. But if we worship them, we're disconnected from God. This inevitably leads to the insanity that plagues us. Only the invisible Creator of all things is worthy of worship. All other powers, rulers and things are beneath Him.
The Satanic force behind all these events has grown and thrived ever since. It's stronger than ever and undaunted by its broken promises, failures, massive suffering and chaos. In truth, chaos and suffering is its goal, and it always delivers. Most of us never learn that this evil is rooted within us. It's often called "sin", but is greatly misunderstood:
The true nature of this evil is the most important subject there is in life. Discussion about it inevitably leads to the unfashionable subject of evil's opposite, God. Satan must be real, or our good God and father doesn't exist.
Their fear is understandable, because it's daunting and enervating to contemplate an intelligent, deathless, and powerfully malevolent spirit capable of strangling the whole planet with octopus-like tentacles.
