How do we fight the cultural war?
In the last article we discussed the fact of the cultural war, that our enemy is the one who rules in the darkness of this age, who is the devil. There is a force of evil at work behind the scenes that is influencing men and women by enabling their natural total depravity. The result is that our country is moving farther and farther away from God. A recent study came to the conclusion that some 72% of Americans say the nation’s moral compass is pointed in the wrong direction, while only 22% say it’s pointed the right way. Moving away from God is agreed upon by the vast majority of Americans as the wrong direction. This raises the question, then why keep voting for the very people who are moving this country in this wrong direction? The issue before us is our relationship before God, continued atheism and agnosticism will not solve the problem. The first solution to this problem is the gospel, for the gospel is the power of God to salvation which results in a right relationship with God. Therefore, we attack with the gospel and whenever and wherever possible we stand against every philosophy that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. We live in a country where it is still possible to be heard and object to the agenda of the ungodly, therefore, we must take every advantage of these opportunities. Such opportunities can be such things as in public debate and forums; on social media and with blogs; letters to those in public office making these kinds of decisions; and in the voting booth. To believe on the Lord Jesus Christ not only gives eternal life but creates a better life and better society in the here and now.
