We are seeing something in our day that is not new, but it is something we haven’t seen as obvious and prolific until recently. This is masses of society in hypocrisy, narcissism, denial of reality, denial of truth, and deceiving and being deceived. We seem to have some projection happening in the progressive left part of our society whereby accusations are made toward others that they themselves are portraying and doing. Some of these accusations thrown around are fascism, racism, intolerance, and discrimination.
I’ve been trying to do some reading to see what I can find out about this situation happening in the society of the West. Some are saying that personality disorders, cognitive dissonance, and mental illness is behind some of what we are seeing. People have constructed ideologies in their minds that they are holding onto above the values of truth and reality. This is why facts do not make any sense or any difference to them. They have constructed their own world in their minds and their own false reality. They are unable to see any hypocrisy in what they think or do and anyone who interferes with what they believe will likely stir up their wrath. We are seeing this happen before our very eyes in the United States, Europe, Canada, and other western nations.
This then leads to the church. What is happening in the churches. Churches are not hanging onto truth but are presently trying to change truth from within. Churches are trying to change the meaning of scriptures to better match the current ideologies of society. Many churches are saying “God has not said….”
Reading something I have found on line that is particularly scary is a comparison that is made of what was happening in the Roman Empire before it fell to what is occurring today in our western society. We are experiencing much the same things. This article says that we are in a place of a likely fall, and then an end to our own civilization in the West.
