The Bible has a lot to say about avoiding deception and renewing our minds with the purity of truth and righteousness, which is a right standing with our Creator and Savior. In today’s world, the person who truly wants to follow Jesus and be led by the Holy Spirit has quite a challenge to sort out the influences in his life that can be potentially very dangerous and even lethal. It takes prayerful work and spiritual discernment to make the best choices.
It’s no surprise to most adults in our society that a highly sophisticated culture of so-called “elitists” are manipulating many aspects of public perception. You’ll find some helpful insights on modern day mind-control in several episodes I’ve posted at ReclaimYourLegacy.com. Our attention is drawn to the key verse in the Bible, warning believers to be on high alert to the life-threatening dangers of mind-controlling deceptions. They can easily draw us astray from the pathway of pure and undefiled faithfulness to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Did you hear about the horrific Texas traffic accident involving over a hundred vehicles because of surprising glare ice on the road? A half dozen people died and over a hundred were injured, some with life debilitating injuries.
Now, if you had the knowledge that the road up ahead was so dangerous that it could cause the death of everyone going that way, wouldn’t you do everything in your power to stop everyone from rushing toward their destruction? Of course, you would. Who wouldn’t? That’s just common humanitarian consideration for our fellow man. You’d have good reason to question the ethics or sanity of anyone who wouldn’t do that, wouldn’t you?
The Pagan Left has dominated the Culture War in America far too long
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ” (Colossians 2:8).
Did you know that Noah Webster, America’s Schoolmaster, said during our founding era, “…that the man who weakens or destroys the divine authority of the Bible may be accessory to all public disorders that society is doomed to suffer.”
The term “Culture War” has become common in describing contemporary American life and politics.
Is it possible for a Biblically faithful culture to survive in this cultural war that has essentially determined the ways of thinking, living, and behaving in a post Christian society?
The sad reality of how non-discerning people are led astray
Have you ever wondered why there is such a vicious and never-ending war being waged against God-made non-toxic food, wholesome natural supplements, and alternative forms of healthcare and disease prevention? Have you ever wondered why an equally intense war is directed against those who profess faith in Jesus Christ?
The Bible clearly warns us to beware of mind-controlling influences in society.
Never Reject the Love of the Truth! by Dennis Petersen

A wise man will hear and increase in learning and a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
Proverbs 1:5, 7
One of my best lessons I ever learned…
“My people are destroyed from a lack of knowledge.”
“Through knowledge the righteous are delivered.”
“… if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
What is the primary way that God gives His wisdom to those who ask of Him?
