When Christians are not active participants in society and culture, Satan begins taking territory for himself.
A nation that was founded on godly principles and morality, a nation that fought to correct the sins of her past and ensure freedom for all citizens was guaranteed, has fallen under demonic influence.
From the White House to Hollywood and everywhere in between, manifestations of demonic activity are on the rise.
Pop music stars, who garner billions of social media views and downloads for their music, have adopted demonic imagery as an industry standard. An entire generation is growing up watching this imagery and having it take root in their hearts as normal and inconsequential.
Taylor Swift, once a country-pop star, now paints herself as a golden goddess and dons demonic masks while praising the goddess, Karma.
Demi Lovato uses imagery of the cross Jesus died upon as a sexual prop.
Lil Nas X portrays himself having sexual intercourse with the devil amid a hellish landscape surrounded by pentagrams.
Sam Smith pushes radical gender ideology into his music while dressing like the devil at the Grammy's for the performance of his song, "Unholy."
Demonism, the occult, witchcraft, these things are all now mainstream in America. No longer relegated to the shadows and hidden corners of society, they have taken the spotlight and are front and center for all to see.
Perhaps the most glaring example of this was when the President of the United States, again, lit up the White House in a faux-rainbow, declaring that America was a nation of "Pride."
To say America is on the course of anything but destruction is folly and ignorant.
There is a remnant of believers speaking truth about the state of culture, and continuing to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. However, more Christians need to take the step of faith and actively participate in ministering to their communities to save America from the brink of collapse.
Backing away and secluding oneself from society is not an option for Christians. We are called to go out into the world, not hide from it.
As the representatives of Jesus Christ on this earth until His return, it is the duty and responsibility of Christians to engage culture, in love, as He did and save souls from the grip of the devil.
The apostle Paul commanded his spiritual son Timothy in 2 Timothy 4:1-2 saying:
"I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word, be ready in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke and exhort, with all patience and teaching."
With this passage a task is given in the same Spirit as the Great Commission handed out by Jesus Christ to His disciples.
Christianity is proactive, not reactive. Playing catchup is not the will of God, but instead be the shapers of culture and shake it to its very core.
This is what Jesus did, and His followers are to live out His example.
The enemy, the true enemy, has made themselves known by what they are doing. It is now up to Christians in America to heed the Word of God and "preach the word, be ready in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke and exhort, with all patience and teaching."
If we do not, then it is the same as surrendering on the battlefield without ever firing a shot.
