Title: Winning The War Over Our Culture's Secular Mind

WINNING THE
WAR
OVER
OUR CULTURES SECULAR MIND
by Steven J. Wallace www.RevelationAndCreation

2 CORINTHIANS 103-6
3 For though we walk in the flesh,we do not war
according to theflesh. 4 For the weapons of our
warfareare not carnal but mighty in God for
pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down
arguments and every high thing that exalts itself
against the knowledge of God, bringing every
thought into captivity to the obedience of
Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all
disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.
3
YET OUR CULTURE HAS MOVED AWAY FROM BIBLICAL
PRINCIPLES!
  • AMERICA
  • LARGEST NUMBER OF CHURCHES
  • LARGEST NUMBER OF BIBLE COLLEGES
  • LARGEST NUMBER OF CHRISTIAN BOOKSTORES
  • LARGEST NUMBER OF CHRISTIAN TV AND RADIO
    PROGRAMS

When asked to estimate the likelihood that they
will continue to participate in church life once
they are living on their own, levels dip
precipitously, to only about one out of every
three teens. Placed in context, that stands as
the lowest level of expected participation among
teens recorded by Barna Research in more than a
decade. . . . The relative lack of interest in
maintaining church ties in the future reflects
their experience with churches to date.
Specifically, they do not perceive churches to be
particularly helpful.

Most teens are desperately striving to determine
a valid and compelling purpose for life. Most of
them want to have influence and impact. The
Church has an opportunity to address such matters
and thus to position itself as a place of
valuable insight and assistance. Barna stated
that young people will give the Church a chance.
But to become an accepted partner in their
maturation process, the Church must earn the time
and attention of teens and that means becoming
a provider of value well before their high school
graduation. The failure to do so virtually
guarantees that the Church will continue to see
massive dropout rates among college students,
with relatively few of those young people
returning to the church immediately after
college.

WHY?
PERHAPS WE CAN DIAGNOSE A REASON FOR THIS SHIFT
AWAY FROM THE BIBLE
1) The church is not touching our culture our
culture is infiltrating the church!
8
THE CHURCH IS THE GREATEST INSTITUTION TO EDUCATE
THE WORLD IN WHAT IS RIGHT
And He said to them, "Go into all the world and
preach the gospel to every creature (Mk. 1615)
. . .the church of the living God, the pillar
and ground of the truth (1 Tim. 315)
9
THE CHURCH IS THE GREATEST INSTITUTION TO EDUCATE
THE WORLD IN WHAT IS RIGHT
But when they did not find them, they dragged
Jason and some brethren to the rulers of the
city, crying out, These who have turned the
world upside down have come here too (Acts
176)
10
WHY?
PERHAPS WE CAN DIAGNOSE A REASON FOR THIS SHIFT
AWAY FROM THE BIBLE
2) Churches Not Regularly Teaching on Salvation
11
ARE SOME ASHAMED?
  • IS SALVATION PRESSED HARD WHERE YOU GO?
  • IS IT ONLY TAUGHT IN PASSING?
  • IS SALVATION DEFINED WHERE YOU GO?
  • IS IT ONLY TAUGHT IN PASSING?
  • IS SALVATION DEFENDED WHERE YOU GO?
  • IS IT ONLY TAUGHT IN PASSING?

12
IF SALVATION IS ONLY TAUGHT IN PASSING, THE
YOUTH WILL PASS IT BY
  • Mark 1616"He who believes and is baptized will
    be saved but he who does not believe will be
    condemned.

13
WHY?
PERHAPS WE CAN DIAGNOSE A REASON FOR THIS SHIFT
AWAY FROM THE BIBLE
3) Christians Compartmentalizing Their Faith
14
THECompartmental Christian
  • Goes to Church on Sunday
  • Goes to Work on Monday
  • Goes to Bank on Friday
  • Goes to Party on Saturday

HYPOCRISY TURNS CHILDREN OFF RATHER THAN ONE
GOING TO CHURCH WHY NOT LIVE AS PART OF THE
CHURCH. . .AS SAVED?
15
The Compartmental Christian
  • WILL NOT TRAIN UP HIS CHILDREN IN THE WAY THEY
    SHOULD GO

Pr 226, Train up a child in the way he should
go, And when he is old he will not depart from
it.
WHY DO YOU THINK SO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE FALL AWAY?
16
WHY?
PERHAPS WE CAN DIAGNOSE A REASON FOR THIS SHIFT
AWAY FROM THE BIBLE
4) The bible is taught as a book of stories
rather than REAL HISTORY
17
WHY?
PERHAPS WE CAN DIAGNOSE A REASON FOR THIS SHIFT
AWAY FROM THE BIBLE
5) ACCEPTANCE OF EVOLUTION
18
EVOLUTION
  • MAKES IMMORALITY RESPECTABLE
  • DECAYS A SOCIETY
  • DESTROYS ANY REAL PURPOSE FOR AN INDIVIDUALS
    LIFE
  • most teens want to know the purpose of life

19
HISTORYS EXAMPLE
  • HITLER

20
The philosopher who had the greatest influence on
Hitler was Nietzsche. In his parable, Thus Spake
Zarathustra, he claimed that God is dead and
that humankind was an evolutionary intermediate
between beast and a superman Man is a rope,
stretched between the animal and the Supermana
rope over an abyssYe have made your way from the
worm to man, and much within you is still worm.
Once were ye apes, and even yet man is more of an
ape than any of the apes Thomas Common,
translator The Philosophy of Niietzche, (New
York Random House, n.d.) 28-29.
21
Today, many medical doctorstrained at their
museumsare in a sense more hypocritical, at
least inconsistent, than Hitler. On one hand,
most say survival of the fittest got us here, and
on the other, instead of killing off those who
are weak or sickly, they actually help
themkeeping them alive to reproduce with all
sorts of diseases and deficiencies, thus
hindering humanitys evolution.

MUSEUMS
LOOKING FOR MIRACLES THE MYTH OF A GLOBAL FLOOD
BEGAN OVER 5000 YEARS AGO PERHAPS AS A STORY TO

thefirmament of the heavens to divide the day
from thenight and let them be forsigns and
seasons, and for days and years 15 "and let
them be for lights in the firmament of the
heavens to give light on the earth" and it was

greater light to rule the day, and the lesser
light to rule the night. He made the stars also.

They used to hang the whole thing on one hook
If you dont do these things, if you dont act
morally, youre going to burn in hell.
Unfortunately, with what we know about science,
anyone who thinks at all probably doesnt believe
in fire and brimstone anymore. So organized
religion has lost that voice to hold up their
moral hand. And the media is dragging us
headlong toward the downfall of civilization.

4 And He answered and said to them, "Have you
not read that He who made them at the beginning
made them male and female, 5 "and said, For
this reason a man shall leave his father and
mother and be joined to his wife, and the two
shall become one flesh? 6 "So then, they are no
longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has
joined together, let not man separate." 7 They
said to Him, "Why then did Moses command to give
a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?" 8
He said to them, "Moses, because of the hardness
of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your
wives, but from the beginning it was not
so. MATTHEW 194-8

Morality is not yet a problem, wrote Nietzsche
in 1888. But it would become a problem, he
predicted, when the people discovered that
without religion there is no morality. The
English flatheads . . . thought it possible to
get rid of the Christian God while retaining
Christian morality. They did not realize that
when one gives up the Christian faith, one pulls
the right to Christian morality out from under
ones feet.

The find, he adds, gives us a unique look at the
developmentor lack thereofof disease over the
ages. Diseases look the same through time, he
says. It makes no difference whether this is
now or a hundred million years ago.

Genesis 216-17
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying,
"Of every tree of the garden you may freely
eat 17 "but of the tree of the knowledge of
good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day
that you eat of it you shall surely die."
106
Genesis 321
Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made
tunics of skin, and clothed them.
BLOODSHED PATTERN
107
Hebrews 922
And according to the law almost all things are
purified with blood, and without shedding of
blood there is no remission.
108
Leviticus 814, 15
14 And he brought the bull for the sin offering.
Then Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the
head of the bull for the sin offering, 15 and
Moses killed it. Then he took the blood, and put
some on the horns of the altar all around with
his finger, and purified the altar. And he poured
the blood at the base of the altar, and
consecrated it, to make atonement for it
109
Leviticus 1711
For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I
have given it to you upon the altar to make
atonement for your souls for it is the blood
that makes atonement for the soul.
110
THE LORDS SACRIFICE FOLLOWS THIS PATTERN AS A
PROPITIATION
24 being justified freely by His grace through
the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom
God set forth as a propitiation by His blood,
through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness,
because in His forbearance God had passed over
the sins that were previously committed ROMANS
324, 25
111
THE LORDS SACRIFICE FOLLOWS THIS PATTERN AS A
PROPITIATION
Much more then, having now been justified by His
blood, we shall be saved from wrath through
Him ROMANS 59 in whom we have redemption
through His blood, the forgiveness of sins
COLOSSIANS 114
112
THE LORDS SACRIFICE FOLLOWS THIS PATTERN AS A
PROPITIATION
and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself,
by Him, whether things on earth or things in
heaven, having made peace through the blood of
His cross COLOSSIANS 120
113
THE LORDS SACRIFICE IS APPLIED AND MADE REAL IN
BAPTISM
3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were
baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His
death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him
through baptism into death, that just as Christ
was raised from the dead by the glory of the
Father, even so we also should walk in newness of
life. ROMANS 63, 4
114
Then God saw everything that He had made, and
indeed it was very good. So the evening and the

For we know that the whole creation groaneth and
travaileth in pain together until now (ROM.

BUT

AND PAIN BEFORE SIN!
117
ATTEMPTED REBUTTALS
  • WOULD ANIMALS HAVE TO EAT OF THE TREE OF LIFE TO
    BE SUSTAINED?
  • NO. . .
  • TREE OF LIFE WAS GIVEN FOR MAN
  • ANIMALS CANNOT SIN (EVEN IF THEY WOULD HAVE EATEN
    OF THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE)
  • ADAM, AS FEDERAL HEAD, BROUGHT JUDGMENT UPON ALL
    THAT HE WAS OVER WHEN HE SINNED For as in Adam
    all die, so also in Christ shall all be made
    alive (1 COR. 1522)

118
WHAT ABOUT THE DEATH OF PLANTS BEFORE THE FALL?

Deuteronomy 84
Your garments did not wear out on you, nor did

And I have led you forty years in the wilderness.
Your clothes have not worn out on you, and your
sandals have not worn out on your feet.

Forty years You sustained them in the wilderness,
They lacked nothing Their clothes did not wear
out And their feet did not swell.
123
Daniel 326b-27
Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego came from
the midst of the fire. And the satraps,
administrators, governors, and the kings
counselors gathered together, and they saw these
men on whose bodies the fire had no power the
hair of their head was not singed nor were their
garments affected, and the smell of fire was not
on them.

UNINTELLIGENT QUOTES FROM INTELLIGENT PEOPLE
  • BLINDED BY A millions of years
  • BIAS!
  • SHALLOW VIEW OF GOD
  • IGNORANCE REGARDING DEATH

132
If God is omnipotent and omniscient, why didnt
he start the universe out in the first place so
it would come out the way that he wants? Why is
he constantly repairing and complaining? No,
theres one thing the Bible makes clear The
biblical God is a sloppy manufacturer. Hes not
good at design, hes not good at execution. Hed
be out of business if there was any competition.
Contact, Carl Sagan. 1985. Pocket Books (Simon
Schuster, Inc.), New York, NY, ed., Pg. 285.
133
Whatever the God implied by evolutionary theory
and the data of natural history may be like, He
is not the Protestant God of waste not, want not.
He is also not a loving God who cares about His
productions. He is not even the awful God
portrayed in the book of Job. The God of the
Galapagos is careless, wasteful, indifferent,
almost diabolical. He is certainly not the sort
of God to whom anyone would be inclined to pray.
David L. Hull, The God of the Galapagos,
Nature, Vol. 352, (Aug. 8, 1992), p. 486.
134
I personally cannot discern a shred of evidence
for a benign, cosmic presence. I look at
evolution and I see indifference and
capriciousness. What kind of God works with a
99.9 percent extinction rate?
Irven DeVore, Harvard University anthropologist,
Times-News Weekender, Astronomy might be
refashioning images of God, Religion section,
May 1, 1999, Pg. 9A.
135
I say that evolution, in my view, is not only NOT
anti-Christian, but the idea of special design,
which many fundamentalists adhere to, might be
because it teaches the view of God that is
blasphemous. The Special-Design-God is a God who
messes up. Think about all the backaches,
infected wisdom teeth and painful childbirth that
exist because we humans evolved incompletely!
"Do you think God is absent-minded?" I ask them.
Dr. Francisco J. Ayala, New York Times, April 27,
1999.
136
You simply cant any longer say as traditional
Christians that death was Gods punishment for
sin. Death was around long before human beings.
Death is a necessary aspect of an evolutionary
worldOne generation has to die for new
generations to come into being. In a way, it is
more satisfyingthan to see it as a sort of
arbitrary punishment that God imposed on our
primeval paradise.
Ian Barbour, professor emeritus at Carleton
College Scientist/Recipient of the 1999
Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion, Dayton
Daily News, Saturday March 13, 1999.
137
To adopt the explanation of design, we are forced
to attribute a host of flaws and imperfections to
the designerWe would also have to attribute
every plague, pestilence, and parasite to the
intentional actions of our master designer. Not
exactly a legacy calculated to inspire love and
reverenceFinally, whatever ones view of such a
designers motivation, there is one conclusion
that drops cleanly out of the data. He was
incompetent.
Kenneth R. Miller, (Catholic, cell biologist,
professor of biology at Brown University),
Finding Darwins God, Cliff Street Books, imprint
of Harper Collins Publishers, 1999, Pages 101-102.
138
Annies cruel death destroyed Charless tatters
of beliefs in a moral, just universe. Later he
would say that this period chimed the final
death-knell for his Christianity, St. Charles now
took his stand as an unbeliever.

Tormented Evolutionist, W.W. Norton Company,

THE BIBLES STRONG INFLUENCE FOR THE GOOD OF
CHILDREN
A recent study by Christianity Today and Campus
Life shows that      72 of U.S. teenagers had
used alcohol during the past 12 months compared
to 15 of teens who claimed to be
Christians.      36 of teenagers had smoked
marijuana compared to 4 who are
Christians.      66 of all teenagers had been
involved in sexual intercourse compared to 9 who
are Christians.
