Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
—Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:13)
This warped perception happens when a culture separates itself from the transcendental truth of God’s law. It is like a ship without a rudder. It wanders aimlessly. It is in danger.
The word for this blending of cultures is syncretism. Syncretistic christians are not warriors. They are deserters. They are salt that has lost its savor.
I happen to see the centralized, materialistic industrial system as a wicked system because it has almost totally sapped the vitality of families, churches and our nation as a whole. The popular culture we see around us is the spawn of industrial culture. Both anti-Christ cultures feed off each other.
