Culture Wars

The world has been from the beginning of time a place where self seeks predominance. Love of self began in the Garden with the serpent tempting Eve to become a self-seeker and deny God’s commandment. So the battle continues today to gain its ground.

Cultural clashing of one group over another is more than ideologies butting up against each other. It’s not just about civil unrest vs. civility, racial fairness vs. inequality. It’s about man’s idea that he wants to take the reins of power upon himself and live, rule, and dictate toward these same ends. This is not love.

In the midst of cultural warfare, there is but one weapon that needs to be used. It’s God’s truth shared in love. God has given us the capacity to love through the power of his Holy Spirit. If man were to take his cues from the Almighty maker of heaven and earth through his Word, these wars would cease.

”For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities… against powers… rulers of the darkness of this world.” Ephesians 6:12 (KJV).

We need to arm ourselves with the strongest weapon we own—the power of God’s Word.
