Culture of Lies - Understanding Fake News and Its Spiritual Ramifications

CULTURE OF LIES

By David Warn | October 23, 2019 | 0 Comments

Nearly half of all Americans have a negative view of the news media. Only 44% say they can think of a news source that reports the news objectively, and 66% say news outlets do not do a good job of separating fact from opinion. Now we have a president who regularly calls mainstream news outlets…

AMERICA’S DRIFT

By David Warn | October 16, 2019 | 0 Comments

From the early 1960’s until now, American culture has undergone a transformation that has left it almost unrecognizable. This shift is not only apparent to all who take the time to observe it, but it also has significant implications for the future. There are four particular cultural changes that should concern every Christian familiar with…

LOCAL ACTION REQUIRED

As someone who focuses on national topics, I also realize that I need to engage locally. Not only am I referring to sharing my faith, but also the need to stand firm in the public square on all kinds of issues.   Like me, you may find yourself  concerned by  various  national trends, federal policies and laws, and countless alarming activities taking place from coast to coast. But locally—wow—did I have a wake-up call of…

TWO PRAYERS FOR 2017—PART 2

For the last 18 months, presidential primaries, campaigns, debates, the election, and finally the inauguration dominated the news. This is why I posted my last blog that included a prayer focused on the presidency and our government. Now, let’s turn to an equally important topic:  “We the people.”   Whenever “we the people” ask our…

TWO PRAYERS FOR 2017

In a matter of hours Donald J. Trump will take the oath of office and become the 45th president of the United States. It cannot be emphasized enough that leadership at every level of government matters; indeed, government is God’s instrument to maintain law and order and to carry out His purposes (Rom. 13:1-7). I…

GOOD NEWS

When we think of God judging a nation or the entire world, we often feel troubled in our spirits. And in part, this response is good and right. The Scriptures teach that we should tremble at His Word and at what may come upon any wayward, rebellious nation (Isa. 66:1-2; Jer. 18:7-10).   In America…

SPIRITUAL PREPARATION-PART THREE

Last February, I went on extended fast. I did not have a specific purpose, other than wanting to be closer to the Lord.   And the Lord did bring me closer. By the last two weeks, He was speaking to my heart almost daily, through His Word and through His still small voice on one…

SPIRITUAL PREPARATION-PART TWO

As we continue our spiritual preparation journey, what else are we to do? As much as possible, we must know what to do. So, let’s continue.   Fourth, prepare in community. In light of what I believe is coming to our nation, it would be a serious miscalculation for one person to try to make…

SPIRITUAL PREPARATION-PART ONE

The title above assumes that something is coming to our nation for which we need to prepare.   Whether we look at the declining influence of Christianity in America, the humanistic stronghold on higher education (an atmosphere in which I ministered for 27 years), the mainstreaming of sexual perversion, or the national debt closing in…
