Recently, Focus On the Family mailed out a letter (pdf here), as reported by the AP wire, "Letter from 2012 in Obama's America." It paints a bleak, scary picture of homosexuality run amok and terrorism increasing ten-fold.
Knowing that culture is religion externalized, the importance of the church is put into proper perspective. With that truth in mind, here is my version of 2012:
2012: The Year Evangelicals Owned America
Church tyranny expands 100-fold: More churches are run by a single pastor, laymen vote less, and innuendo and unlawful trials multiple due to no appeal courts.
Christians grow spiritually ignorant--94% have a pagan worldview.
Christians get bilked by the millions from false prophets and tv evangelists.
Christians become more liberal: 57% believe there are other ways to heaven than Christ.
Christian worship turns more pagan: women worship leaders, images of Christ, convulsions, foreign tongues, puppet shows, 15-minute pep talks.
!!! Waitaminute....that's today!
Now that's scary.
Hos. 4:6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Too many conservative Christians decry the rise of a secular culture when the churches themselves need to clean up their act--beginning first with their biblical ignorance. God will not be mocked nor His Christ degraded.
Judgment begins in the house of the LORD. 1 Pet. 4.17
