"the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one"
1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

We must press on in love toward the brethren, that the whole world will know we are disciples of Christ. As we shine as light to the world, may there be those who will taste and see that The Lord is good.
"Today, gay tolerance is on the rise around the world, particularly among young people. Nearly half (46 percent) of Americans in the United States say same-sex couples should be recognized by the law as valid with the same rights as traditional marriages, according to a recent Gallup Poll"

"But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.2Pet.2:22
False teachers and their just as false religions have a lot to answer for.
Perhaps we need to go back to the 16th century when God Reformed the Church.
