As we survey our rotting cultural and political landscape, it is tempting, from a worldly perspective, to lose hope for our way of life and our nation. As Christians, we have a greater Hope, one that transcends these worldly problems. We must always train our focus on Jesus Christ, especially during this holiest of weeks, but let’s not in the meantime abandon our earthly duties — our responsibilities to family, friends, country and values. While we must guard against making politics and patriotism our idols, we don’t have to accept the notion that worshiping God requires neglecting what is true, great and good in our earthly lives. A spiritual war is raging before our eyes, and we must suit up against it — unless our lives on this side of eternity are utterly pointless. I’ll never believe God placed us on Earth to be indifferent to life here, to surrender the reins to forces of evil because a better world awaits us. Our Founding Fathers certainly didn’t believe that either. But to properly and competently fight for our values, we must do more than just mouth the observation that we’re in a spiritual war. We must embrace it in our very souls, because it is true as any concrete reality we can verify with our five senses. We must embrace it because we are going to need other-worldly courage to face the whirlwind forces of evil and untruth that have possessed our culture; that have brainwashed half our nation; and that threaten to finally destroy America as we know and love it, and as it was founded — a land of unsurpassed religious and political liberty... https://pjmedia.com/columns/david-l...wel-when-fighting-the-forces-of-evil-n1436837 We must defend our country and our culture from its enemies foreign and domestic. We can’t give up! There is too much that is good left in our exceptional America to dare to give up now. We must stand up and fight for and defend what we believe.
