We are living in an age of spiritual complacency. Many theologians and pastors have compromised the Word of God and have accepted degrading moral practices that are clearly outside the ancient boundaries of God.
Many believe they are not setting aside God’s Word in support of their community standards. In regards to military chaplains, many believe they are responding professionally, positively and responsibly in the nine months since the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy was repealed and gays could serve openly. Lowering God’s standards definitely makes many people feel accepted and included as heirs of all of God’s promises and blessings. We know that the god of this world, Satan himself, is behind this philosophy and has been the archenemy of God since his rebellion in heaven. He has been relentless in his pursuit to destroy God’s Word and plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. In Psalm 74:3-5 Asaph writes, “Turn thy footsteps toward the perpetual ruins: the enemy has damaged everything within the sanctuary. Thine adversaries have roared in the midst of thy meeting place; they have set up their own standards for signs. It seems as if one had lifted up his ax in a forest of trees.”
However, there is good news. It is Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah, the Risen Savior, who will have the final roar in delivering His church from the evil fangs of Satan. Joel 3:16, Revelation 5:5
