“None of these policies can be identified as merely political. Rather, in the once “Christian” West we are faced with direct opposition to biblical truth, and encouragement to worship pagan gods and condone their practices. We respond as the Apostle did in ancient Rome two thousand years ago, with a courageous and full-scale defense of biblical truth.”
(Peter Jones – truthXchange) The West is increasingly anti-Christian. Recent opposition is not secularist or rationalist, nor is it merely political. It is deeply religious.
How do Christians face this competing religious system? It may help us to realize how similar our own culture is to that of the ancient Roman Empire. A serious academic study, Pagans and Christians in the City: Culture Wars from the Tiber to the Potomac, traces the re-emergence of ancient Roman culture in contemporary Washington, D.C. Like ancient Rome, our culture is full of corrupt politicians, many of whom seek to prolong their stay in Washington for financial kick-backs from foreign governments and for insider-trading privileges on Wall Street. In one poll, 51% agreed with the statement, “U.S. democracy is at risk of extinction.” A resounding 85% of respondents were concerned about the rise of political extremism in the United States.
