American Culture Has Fundamentally Changed Over The Past Several Decades

For as long as I have been alive, there has been an epic struggle for control over America’s values.  It has been referred to as “the culture war”, and it is often framed in political terms, but the truth is that it runs much deeper than that.  Literally every moment of every day, forces on both sides are engaged in a relentless battle for your mind.  Virtually everything you watch on television, listen to on the radio and look at on the Internet is designed to shape how you view the world.  Our education system, our largest corporations and politicians in both major parties are also used as tools in the culture war.  Both sides would like to achieve victory, but as you will see below, only one side has been making significant progress.

The Police State Is Coming For “Religious Extremists”, “Evangelical Christians”, “Pro-Life” Activists And “Libertarians”

If you cherish faith, family and freedom, you might want to keep a low profile for a while.  The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021 has been unveiled in Congress, and it has bipartisan support.  It is essentially “the Patriot Act on steroids”, and we are being told that it is almost certain that some version of the legislation will make it to Biden’s desk for him to sign.  Personally, I am very much against all forms of domestic terrorism, and a law which could help to prevent terror attacks from happening is going to sound like a good thing to a lot of people.  Unfortunately, it appears that this bill is meant to specifically target certain groups, and as you read this article you may discover that you are a member of one or more of those groups.

The Agony Of Deceit

It has often been said that “in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”.  That quote is often attributed to George Orwell, but there isn’t actually any evidence that he ever said it.  But many years from now, people will continue to attribute that quote to Orwell.  It certainly sounds like something he might have said, but it is so important to stick to the facts.  Unfortunately, just about our entire society has become divorced from reality in recent years, and this has been on full display over the past couple of months.  We have witnessed a constant flood of lies from the left, and unfortunately we have also witnessed a constant flood of lies from the right.  As children we were told that “words can never hurt us”, but the truth is that millions upon millions of people have been hurt by all of these lies.  If we ever hope to heal our society, we have got to make a commitment to return to the truth, and that is not going to be easy to do.

Global Persecution: The Number Of Christians Killed For Their Faith Increased By 60 Percent In Just One Year

For years I have been warning that Christian persecution was rising all over the globe, but we have never seen anything like the past year.  Christians are being slaughtered all across Africa, they are being taken to concentration camps in North Korea, thousands of churches have been brutally shut down under a new wave of persecution in China, and millions of believers throughout the Middle East must live knowing that each new day may be their last.  Of course most Americans have never heard about any of this because the mainstream media won’t cover it.

The Great Debate About America’s Future

Are you surprised by America’s sudden meltdown?  Over the past 12 months, we have witnessed the greatest public health crisis in 100 years, the lockdowns that were instituted to control the pandemic resulted in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, widespread civil unrest erupted in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death and has not stopped since, and now we are witnessing the greatest political turmoil since the Civil War.  Despite all of this chaos, many Americans remain absolutely convinced that the greatest days of the United States are still ahead of us.  To them, the current problems we are facing are just minor bumps in the road that will soon be resolved as we continue to steamroll toward an incredibly glorious future.

The Only Solution To America’s Problems Is Jesus

I have never seen as much anger in the United States as I am seeing right now, and that greatly saddens me.  No matter what happens, we should always love one another.  Unfortunately, most Americans on both sides of the political spectrum are seething with hate right now.  Leading up to the election in November, the left and the right were primarily attacking each other with angry words, but now the level of physical violence that we are witnessing is extremely alarming.  The violence at the U.S. Capitol was just another example of the violence that stretched all throughout 2020 and that has continued in various parts of the nation this weekend.  Most of the time, the left only wants to condemn the violence that the right has committed, and the right only wants to condemn the violence that the left has committed.

When We Teach Our Kids That Life Has No Value, This Is How They Act…

The endless chaos in our streets is directly related to how we have been raising our children for the past couple of decades.  Bad beliefs lead to bad actions, and we have been teaching our kids values that are fundamentally flawed.  In particular, our children are endlessly taught that life has no value in a multitude of ways.  They view thousands of murders on television and in the movies as they grow up, the news glorifies politicians that tell them that it is a good thing to slaughter the unborn, and western nations are increasingly embracing the idea that older people should be willing to ask for the “plug to be pulled” once their “usefulness” is over.  Throughout their lives, our kids are trained to believe that they evolved from animals and that there is nothingness after they die, and the logical conclusion of such a worldview is that the period of time between birth and death is rather meaningless.
