The fact that the battle to preserve our society of liberty is a spiritual war against demonic principalities in high places is more evident now than ever before in our lifetime. The question is – will God’s people who are called by His name not only humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, but will they be the preserving salt of influence on our society or will they continue to be ‘trampled’ by society’s mountains of influence?
Practical tips for overcoming deception in today's dark world
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 a great challenge to sort out the influences in his life that can potentially be very dangerous. It takes prayerful work and spiritual discernment to make the best choices.
Colossians 2:8 says: “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.”
The beloved apostle John wrote in his first epistle: “We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.” (1 John 4:6)
This is why it’s imperative for thoughtful followers of Jesus Christ today to seriously take actions in keeping with the Biblical warning to “prove all things” (1 Thes 5:21). Don’t just go along with the crowd and use the lame excuse that ‘everybody’s doing it.’
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.
