Traditional Judaeo-Christian faith and values are under increasing attack
In the Western world from societies that have abandoned their belief in the one true Living God. These attacks include -
• Atheist denials of the existence of God or life after death
• Humanist, secular society arguments that man is the measure of all things
• Scientific claims to have the answers to society's problems
• The scientific quest for omniscience and immortality
• Darwinian evolutionary theories about the origins of life
• The claim that human beings are simply animals - "man is the hairless ape"
• The rise of moral relativism and the denial of good and evil
• Materialist, reductionist worldviews that treat human beings as machines
• Denial of the divine inspiration and authority of Scripture
• Religious pluralism and the New Age that claims all religions lead to heaven
• An increase in occult practices, paganism, witchcraft and satanism
• The rise of militant Islam and the use of terror
• The emergence of the 'Post-Truth' society and strategies of disinformation
• The satanic reversal of good and evil, right and wrong, black and white
• Increasing mockery of religious beliefs in the media
• The despair resulting from idolatry, humanism, materialism, and hedonism
• The rise of the New Age movement for one world government, one world economy and one world religion as a prelude to the arrival of the Anti-Christ.
The Battle Is Not Against Flesh & Blood 2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-5
In the face of such an onslaught we need to remember the supernatural nature of the warfare in which we are engaged as Christians.
