Why We Must Make a Difference in Our Dying Culture
America is dying a slow death much like other nations have in the past.
The path is always the same, deny God and His wrath and judgement will follow.
In the West, there’s growing skepticism about theism and the Christian faith specifically.
Americans even American Christians have refused to see the enchanted spiritual world around them, a world of spiritual forces that enter into and shape our everyday life.
Pragmatism, materialism and scientism have replaced our ability to see what the world actually is with a forced nihilsm.
Sex has also become a slave to secularism’s promiscuity and transgender ideology.
Children and families ar deemed no longer necessary.
If we were to follow a true Christian sexual ethic extramarital sex is a destructive taboo and promiscuity always brings shame to both self and family.
God teaches us a person’s identity isn’t found solely in his or her interior psychological life.
Our cultural view that happiness and identity are found by following our passions and sexual feelings/desires is a disaster and continues to drag people into sin.
Making a difference in our families and communities as Christians starts as we learn not to fear the traditions/social norms of men but to follow God and his will as disclosed in the Holy Scriptures.
We must understand that unity in Christ as more precious and deeper than any social calling.
We are citizens of a heavenly kingdom and we must embrace whatever is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, and excellent about our culture.
8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
We must also ask the Lord to help us see and replace ungodly thinking and doing where they’re present in our lives. By God’s grace we can then become and encouragement to those around us we grow in Christlikeness.
