The Coming Spiritual Civil War

The church and Christ followers stand at a crossroads that eventually lead to a divided highway. Our culture has deceived us with various words that sound moral and even spiritual. Today we have a clearly divided left and right when it comes to how people align their beliefs and political alliance.

This may surprise you, but the enemy of the church isn’t primarily aimed at a particular political party or God. In the first place, most of them don’t believe He exists, and even if He does, they wish He would just go away. Others are angry at God because they view the Word of God as intrusive and against their beliefs and lifestyle.

Left-wing activists typically hate committed Christians and the Christian faith for a different set of reasons. It begins with resentment for everything we stand for, especially our belief in immutable standards of right and wrong that are based on biblical truth. This is why we are called the “right.” They despise this belief system because it threatens their godless worldview.

For example, they are universally committed to abortion through nine months of pregnancy. A growing number even want to kill babies born alive after surviving botched abortions. The word infanticide does not even cause them to blush.
They hate conservative Christians who oppose the LGBTQ agenda, and they will fight for it to their last breath. In fact, there is no expression of sexual immorality that they don’t protect and support, regardless of how perverse. That includes unisex bathrooms and locker rooms, and the most horrific forms of pornography and prostitution. Some even hope to legalize pedophilia, if given a chance. And you won’t hear a peep of protest while the most wicked profiteers are making billions of dollars from sex-trafficking. Above all else, the media hates Christians who dare to believe marriage is intended exclusively for a man and a woman.

Despite our attempts to show love and compassion to those with whom we disagree, they consider us to be their mortal enemies. It is also why they miss no opportunity to marginalize, ridicule, threaten, and silence those Christians who take their faith seriously. In this representative form of government, we are all that stand between them and the achievement of their ultimate goal, which is raw political power.

I am sad to say that the mainstream media, the universities, the entertainment industry, gay and lesbian activists, pro-choice zealots, liberal educators, and other leftist constituencies are now just inches away from grasping all they have lusted after. It’s amazing that in such a short time period that small percentage of our population has captured the ear and heart of today’s culture and media.

Well, that is my message. If I have offended some of you, I haven’t intended to be discourteous, but I am compelled to speak the truth in love. But what I have written in this blog is rooted in my understanding of Scripture. Let me quote the words of Jesus written in,

John 15:18-21: If the world hates you, know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you: “A servant is not greater than his master.” If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will also keep yours. 21 But all these things they will do to you on account of My name, because they do not know Him who sent Me.

This is the Voice of the Overseer
