Dr. James Dobson (Facebook/Dr. James Dobson's Family Talk)
It's easy to recognize the intense spiritual war going on in the U.S. right now. It shows up in our politics, our media, our classrooms and even our families. And as believers, we can't afford to ignore it.
In Charisma's November cover story, titled "The Spiritual Struggle for the Soul of America," I write about this war and how believers must respond if we want to see our nation choose a righteous path again. I believe the insights I share in that article will bless you, but since the article is so long and in-depth, I split it into three parts. In my last two Strang Reports (Part 1and Part 2 of the article), I wrote about John Kilpatrick's prophetic word about Jezebel warring against Trump and Chuck Pierce's prophetic exhortation to align with God's will for this nation.
Today I want to share with you the final part of my print article, in which I share Dr. James Dobson's take on our culture's spiritual war. Dr. Dobson, founder of Family Talk Radio, is widely respected, so I was grateful to interview him for my latest book, Trump Aftershock. He says the solution to the culture war is spiritual.
"Most of the contentious issues that divide us are rooted in Scripture and theology," Dobson says. "Those of us on the conservative side aren't dealing with mere differences of opinion. We are trying to live by standards that are eternal and 'God-breathed.' Those principles are not negotiable. We must, however, defend them within the context of love for our fellow human beings. That is a given for followers of Jesus Christ. Our task is to defend our beliefs without insulting or wounding those with whom we disagree."
America stands again at a precipice. God is leading us to make better choices, just as He did with Israel. Moses and his people continued to wander in their comfortable, desolate wilderness and missed God's direction.
