We are in a cosmic struggle of Good versus Evil. Satan is our primary enemy. He seeks to destroy our lives. If he is unable to accomplish this, his secondary goal is to neutralize our influence. This is a consistent theme throughout the New Testament. It shouldn’t surprise anybody.
What is surprising is how often born-again Christians, those who should know better, dismiss or diminish the adverse impact of Satan’s destructive influence. That we continue to deny such a powerful adversary reveals how foolish our generation of believers has become. It’s a major reason why we have so little impact on our culture, losing routinely to the Progressive Children of Darkness.
Living in denial of Satan’s influence neutralizes our impact more effectively than anything else. Many Christians imprudently believe they are strong enough to withstand the crushing impact of a spiritual onslaught, which they unwisely attempt to do in their own power, rather than appropriating God’s Armor to do so. As a result, they fail miserably. Regardless of how physically strong and emotionally secure we consider ourselves to be, we cannot withstand such an onslaught. We are incapable of doing so. Our flesh was not made to be this powerful, but we live in an era where millions of Christians refuse to accept this simple truth. They also refuse to heed the warning signs of spiritual attack.
Young Christians have been taught to understand spiritual battles through movies, video games, and TV shows, rather than from the Bible. The entertainment industry is full of supernatural creatures— some good, some bad—but most of these supernatural entities have been depicted as capable of being defeated by humans.
Have you ever thought Satan might be behind these depictions? Many choose to fight Satan and his demonic cohorts in the power of the flesh instead of appropriating divine armor, which God has provided specifically for this purpose. If we did utilize God’s provisions, we would be capable of withstanding a spiritual attack.
Why we refuse to use the weapons God has provided indicates how foolish and spiritually obtuse we have become. We consider ourselves to be strong and self-sufficient, but we are not. Instead, what we have become is willful and stubborn. This is a weakness and not a strength. We are not nearly as intuitive or resilient as we consider ourselves to be. We may not enjoy thinking about demonic attacks—much less learning about how to deal with them—but they are a serious problem that will not go away simply because we are uncomfortable addressing them as being an issue.

Retaking the USA: From Darkness and Depravity
Stand Firm Against Progressivism Knowing profound change must occur, if we are to survive as the land of the free and the home of the brave, it is clear that a group of patriotic Christians and others of faith must be strong enough, committed enough and determined enough to make a stand. Only then can the course of American history be altered, precisely like it was in the Revolutionary era.What is needed, however, isn’t simply a renewal in patriotism. Our need is more fundamental than this. If we want change that will last, if we want our core values to be restored, if we want our way of life to flourish once again, we are the ones who will need to change—not the Progressives. Being degenerate by nature, most of them are incapable of changing—not for the better anyway.This is not true for us. If we change, America will change. If we don’t, the Children of Darkness will secure their victory and the United States we have known will cease to exist. To survive and once again thrive, we must embrace the fact that Christ placed us in this position. It is for such a time as this that we have been groomed. It is up to us, ordinary people, to stand strong for the USA. Nothing less than a renewed commitment to godliness will accomplish the goal we desire. This is why Retaking the USA: From Darkness and Depravity has been written. If you read the book, it will change you forever—no doubt about it.
