Hate has become an epidemic in our culture. Every few months you see in the news someone people killed or beaten up for ideologies. Just this past weekend there were two domestic terror attacks. A culture falling away from the truths of Christ is prone to destroy itself. Are we in a time judgement? However you answer the former question we need revival.
We used to come together after the remains of tragic evil. Now we attribute bad motives to others just for having different solutions. We view people as the other instead of another person created in the image of God. When we turn ourselves into a god everyone different from you is lesser. Our culture is adopting a horrible ideology. This ideology is if you think differently you are evil. Our thought leaders and politicians need to leave room for debate without assuming the worst. If not the outcomes will be so much worse.
Are we in a time of judgement or is it soon approaching? I’m not a prophet but I’ll lay out what is happening around us. Our culture is rejecting basic truths. We are created in the image of God, therefore our souls are extremely valuable in the sight of God. We are not seeing that value as a culture. Christians are even bending the bible to fit their will. Homosexuality, lust, greed, idolatry, envy and you name it is diluted in the Christian church. So should we fear God and come to repentance? Or are we going to give in to these sins we turned into as acceptable.
I honestly fear for our culture every time there is an evil tragedy in the news. We already have our narratives ready before we hear the facts. We troll and gaslight people instead of actually talking about solutions. First we have to recognize that the flesh is not inherently good. Also everything isn’t systemic. This is a logically fallacy that leads to nothing good. If we can’t accept these basic truths then hate is inevitable. Unfortunately, I don’t see an end to this with the craziness that exist in social media.
The topic of the increase in hate is depressing. The only hope we have is thru Jesus. We need to be preaching and exclaiming His truth. Don’t dilute the truth to have cultural acceptance. This is the most destructive thing we can do as Christians. Darkness doesn’t mix with the Light. The only way the culture of hate can end is from the Word of God. Don’t lament, ACT.
