It’s hard to go a few minutes on social media or the news without noticing a post or story concerning race relations these days. It’s always good to be aware, but we must learn to make a habit of researching movements and organizations that might feel good on the surface—but under slight discernment are rotten to the core. We are told in the Bible to be wise, and social situations are surely no exception. My friend Bethany Bomberger and I are talking about Black Lives Matter and how it fits when looked at through the lens of God’s Word. Listen in. It’s an important discussion!
I’m answering your questions today! Do I have to comply with the ‘Rona requirements to finish my college degree? How do I navigate this tension surrounding the support of President Trump? Do Christians need to be involved in politics? What sort of help does my husband need to help with a pornography addiction? You guys ask such good questions! Daily life is still moving on in the midst of the current insanity, and it’s important to keep talking about it.
How do we know if something going on is spiritual in nature? How can we tell if we’re under attack by evil? Many of you are asking me why I keep saying this current situation is from the enemy. Today, let’s look at examples in the Word so that we can observe how the adversary works. We can see very specific, telltale signs that point to demonic attack. God says we must be on guard against the schemes of the devil and today, we’ll put on the armor together! Seeing these attacks for what they are help us know how to handle them in our daily lives. Listen in! I think you’ll be encouraged.
Today I’m talking with my good friend and staff member, Marlene. She happens to be black, Puerto Rican, and is married to a white American. Marlene and her husband have three beautiful children. Marlene is passionate about the issues we’re facing right now, and so today, we’re talking about how we got here and how we can move forward toward unity. Right now, our country is embroiled in a divisive and dangerous argument about race. This isn’t black vs. white, friends. It’s good vs. evil, and we need to see it that way while we work to heal the divisions in our world.

We are at a place where we need to do some soul searching in our country. We are having to talk about things that we don’t like to talk about as we are in the middle of a grab for power and control of a narrative like I’ve never seen before. When we stand up against the narrative being pushed by the media and the radical left, we see division in our churches, families, and our closest communities. This agenda is unearthing issues that we need to deal with for sure, but they are not the issues the radical left thinks we need to correct. We can not sacrifice truth on the altar of misguided mercy or be shamed into thinking we are in sin when we are not. God is at work, and unless and until we open our eyes to see what is happening with this media driven narrative we will continue to fall into their trap. This is about control, and we need to be discerning and see the big picture so we don’t inadvertently perpetuate a misguided message.
