Ephesians 4:17-19 Amp. Bible
17. So this I say, and solemnly affirm together with the Lord [as in His presence], that you must no longer live as the [unbelieving] Gentiles live, in the futility of their minds [and in the foolishness and emptiness of their souls].
18. for their [moral] understanding is darkened and their reason is clouded; [they are] alienated and self-banished from the life of God [with no share in it; this is] because of the [willful] ignorance and spiritual blindness that is [deep-seated] within them, because of the hardness and insensitivity of their heart.
19. And they, [the ungodly in their spiritual apathy], having become callous and unfeeling, have given themselves over [as prey] to unbridled sensuality, eagerly craving the practice of every kind of impurity [that their desires may demand].

If there was ever a time that Christians need to stand together today is that time. For as the early church was prosecuted we are also facing persecution.  We have seen the U.S. Supreme Court uphold atheist in their attempt to take God out of our lives.  By using the Separation of Church and State to take away prayer in school, whatever the activity may be.  We have seen the Court allow that any Christian symbol be taken down on government property. We have seen the Court uphold gay's the right to be married, which is against God's law.  

We have seen the rise of political correction take a more lead in how we should talk.  To the point of just saying Merry Christmas is a no,no.  What's next, when you say God Bless you if a person sneezes?  So what are Christians suppose to do against these attacks? 

Ephesians 4:23-24 Amp. Bible

23. and be continually renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh, untarnished mental and spiritual attitude].
24. and put on the new self [the regenerated and renewed nature], created in God's image, [godlike] in the righteousness and holiness of the truth [living in a way that expresses to God your gratitude for your salvation].

We need to continually renew our mind in the Holy Spirit, so whatever the world tries to throw at us we will stand firm in our belief in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Knowing that Truth overcomes the wicked.

Ephesians 4:26-27 Amp. Bible

26. Be angry [at sin---at immorality, at injustice, at ungodly behavior], yet do not sin; do not let your anger [cause you shame, nor allow it to] last until the sun goes down.
27. And do not give the devil an opportunity [to lead you into sin by holding a grudge, or nurturing anger, or harboring resentment, or cultivating bitterness].

1 Peter 5:8-9 Amp. Bible

8. Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour.
9. But resist him be firm in your faith [against his attack---rooted, established, immovable], knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being experienced by your brothers and sisters throughout the world [You do not suffer alone.] 

The world doesn't recognize that there is a devil, called Satan, and will look for human reasons for why a evil event happened.  And this is the reason that we need to affirm together with the Lord, because we know there is a devil and he prowls around like a roaring lion.  And it is by stand firm with other that also are spiritually with the Lord that we can stand against the attacks of the world.  Just like those in the being of our faith.

Ephesians 4:32 Amp. Bible

32. Be kind and helpful to one another, tender-hearted [compassionate, understanding], forgiving one another [readily and freely] just as God in Christ also forgave you.

God Bless,
Have a good day,
John T. Begin
