ToTD (10) Cultural War

We are in the middle of a cultural war,
but most people do not realise what is happening.

The Great Unwashed just get on with life
working to “earn a buck”
and trying to have a good time.
They do not think
or care about the great issues of life.
They just follow wherever they are led by the cultural elite
that controls the media and shapes the nation.
The real struggle is between the cultural elite,
the clever people and the church.

At the moment the church is struggling.
It should be challenging the secular elite
and shaping the culture,
but instead its members are being sucked out
by the prevailing hostile culture.
The church is in danger of being swamped
but the world around it.
The clever people are winning the cultural war.

That economic shaking will have limited impact on most people
They will cut back on some luxuries
and grumble,
and go back to their struggle for the good life,
but they will not be changed,
because the church is not prepared
to reach them.
As the Church has been sucked into the world system,
it will be shaken by the economic troubles,
just like the world,
with which it has compromised.

God only needed a few dozen groups of ten people
totally committed to him and to each other
who are ready for the times and who know what to do,
to change the nations,
but even they are not ready.

God’s purpose in the shaking
is to even up the struggle
by cutting the cultural elite back to size.

Interesting thought. Yes God is at work to make his house a house of prayer for all nations.
