The direction of our culture is going rapidly south. The narrative we create for ourselves is more valuable then the truth itself. We are hurting kids and the innocent. Our selfish desires are more paramount then the desires of our creator. We are constantly worshiping idols and social media is our alter. We don’t share common values and principles. The only thing that gives our lives purpose is what the world can offer us.
We gravitate to news stories that confirm our own biases. Anything that challenges our thinking and convicts us we tend to run away from it. We only here what we want to hear. Also, we even take away from a news story contrary to the real narrative of the story. Confrontational bias is way too prominent in our culture. It surprises me how everyone who reads the same articles deciphers different conclusions.
The direction of our culture begins with who is our god. Is earthly pleasures our god? Is our own pride our god. Are celebrity opinions and lifestyles our god? I can continue with these questions but the point is already made. Our direction in our culture gravitates towards hell we don’t follow in the light of God. His truth is what we put our hope on. A god inspires us and gives us purpose. So what happens when God is not our god?
Our own morality apart from God is harmful to us. God didn’t give us the bible to make our lives hard. It was given to preserve us and to create a bond with our creator. Our own morality is the morality of Satan. That sounds harsh but it is the truth.
Proverbs 3:5-7 (NASB):
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in you own eyes;
fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”
Our country is desperate for a revival. We are even debating infanticide as a morality. It is sickening. We are spiraling into the direction of judgement. We are lovers of you own selfish desires. Also, we are worshiping idols all the time. When we are not searching for the light of Christ we are drifting to the darkness. You can only serve one; Satan or Christ. Which direction do you choose?
