Christians seem to be coming under attack by the enemies of God now more than at any time in recent history. It is not by frontal assault as in previous times, but by religious deception. The Bible warns that Satan appears as an "angel of light". In too many cases, the false angel (Satan) is not detected and wreaks havoc in Christians lives and in the Church of God. In other cases, there is a deception that is not directly of Satan, but by the unsaved who manage to infiltrate the lives of believers and who come into the Church as members. These people do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior nor his mission for the Church. The problem, too, is the lack of discernment by many believers who are not able to detect the enemy's subtleties. God will grant the believing community the necessary wisdom and discenment if we are faithful to him. He loves his people and wants to see them spiritually healthy in order to fight the fight of faith and spread the gospel. This can only be done if we allow his word to direct and strengthen us. How do we do so? We must read and study his word, obeying and applying its truths daily in our lives. We must walk in the light of his word in order to see where we are and where we need to be. God's word, through the Holy Spirit, will teach us how to recognize the sin within and the enemy without. His word will direct our personal cleansing through confession and repentance of sin, and show us how to maintain the purity of our own lives, and of his Church. We will then be able to recognize and guard against the invasion of this ungodly culture.
