How to Abide in Christ Surrounded by a Culture at War with Christians Doctrine

The Opposite of the Joel Osteen and Andy Stanley “Prosperity Gospel”

I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.



Do not be conformed to this world.


Cling to God through His Word.

  • The Gospel
  • We pray trusting God’s Will is done.


Apply – Hear and do

Know, Trust, Obey = Rest

REST!  Leave your anxieties behind

Matthew 11:28-30

28 “Come (in obedience) to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke (trust) upon you and learn from me (know), for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

John 1:4

4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.  

Know the Deception 

Understand the trick of the enemy is to get you to think they are neutral and have the answer to truth.  Their tactic is to first decry both sides of the argument, then present what appears to be a new argument, that really is one of the extreme positions disguised as something new.  Be ready for this deception.    

For example, a false religionist will tell you that the conservatives are mean to LGBTQ and at the same time acceptance of sin is wrong.  Then, they present arguments to use pronouns in church, baptize homosexuals, etc. in the name of “civility” and “empathy”.  Don’t fall for it.

Gather in Accountability and Fun

If we are true to Christ in the culture, we will be rejected.  That includes within our own families if they are not true believers.  It is critical to gather with brothers and sisters in Christ and be reminded you are not on an island in this world.

Have fun and sanctify each other in Christ.

Expect Persecution

How must Christians prepare for increased persecution?

While the humanists in the secular world make victims of transgenders, the actual persecuted are those following the true Gospel.  

This will impact where you live, work, and worship.
