The Mind of Babylon
Are you one of those people who look with unbelief at that craziness of the world? Are you ever concerned about being dragged away from you faith unawares? People are telling us a lot of things that sound very spiritual and good. But is it all a lie? Understanding how society thinks is the way to discover the difference between truth and dece More
The world about us is filled with the utterances of the "wise men" that the Apostle Paul spoke of. Their voices are calling out to us daily in their arrogance and defiance. They are inviting us to forsake the God of our fathers and turn away from two thousand years of church history to follow a god they have conjured up in their minds. They are detailing to us how the morality upon which our society was inaugurated is archaic and no longer relevant. In some cases they are re-writing our history to discount the existence of traditional Christian values in our past altogether. They demarcate our current society as "enlightened" in an effort to cover up the humanism they embrace.
The voices that are calling out to the West originated from that third kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar's dream recorded in the book of Daniel. It is the call from the ancient Greek philosophers whose determination to exile the concept of God from their description of reality now signals the end of the age and the return of Christ.
The Bible declares that this will be the way it is in the Last Days. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (II Tim 3:1-5)
What are we to do about it? What does the Bible tell us to do when we live in a society that is founded on lies? We need to discover who these people are and what the nature of their lies are. We need to seek the truth.
