The Christian church in the west is lacking cultural warriors. We see cultural warriors building on the side of darkness. Christians believe that passivity is the gateway to creating new Christians. This is a method of expanding the church. Passivity doesn’t expand the truth. We let our culture be overtaken by evil doctrine and allow that doctrine to overrun the church.
We need to start by equipping the church. I do have a few posts already talking about the importance of this issue. A cultural warrior is impossible when you go into the world without being fully equipped with the word of God. If the church is not helping you mature it may be easier to join the war on the opposing side.
Pop Culture is always at war with the Truth. For example, let’s talk about major streaming platforms. I see movies on those platforms completely mocking the name of God. Yet, we keep our subscriptions because we don’t want to miss a few of the shows and movies we like. We have to make a choice. Is our entertainment gratification more important then giving your money to those who blaspheme Christ?
Accepting many ideologies in church is proclaimed as an avenue as tolerance. We are told this will bring people from outside of the church to Christ. This is lack of understanding of a church. Is the pastor the shepherd of the church or the evangelist to the unbelievers in the church? If it becomes that later then heretical views and teaching can come into the church.
Is our Church ready for creating cultural warriors? No, not even close. We don’t get the understanding of the role of the church. We don’t fight for anything that blasphemes the name of God. Also, we are not mature enough in our faith to confront the culture. Let’s be self-aware and create cultural warriors.
