I’m not a fan of talking about the enemy. I don’t feel he deserves the attention or to be talked about. But the truth is: there is a real enemy, and he is running rampant in our culture today. Our culture is filled with division, lack of peace, with more worry and anxiety than ever before. Every day we wake up as of late, we are not sure what kind of day we are waking up to in our culture.
Not only are people divided due to the color of their skin, their political beliefs, religious views, and social norms, but our houses and families are dividing more than ever with the divorce rate being the highest this culture has ever seen.
We often blame the culprit involved. We blame our spouses, our parents, siblings, government leaders, church leaders, and all the people performing deliberate acts of violence or making out of control decisions affecting us all.
We often think our culture could get better if only we had the right presidential leader. Our marriage would be better if only our spouse would fix this or that. Our world would be better if parents raised their children in less violent homes…
…but what if the real culprit isn’t who we think it is? What if the people we are pointing the finger at isn’t to blame, but rather they are simply being used as vessels to cause such destruction?
