The modern western world is hostile to Christianity

Satan hates morality, chastity and virtue. He hates goodness. He hates Christianity — real Christianity, true Christianity — for what it is and stands for. Modern western man in following the ways of lust, immorality and wickedness, whether he is conscious of it or not, is of the same mind, spirit and outlook as Satan. Depraved modern western man’s sympathies are with the wicked and the immoral. He is hostile to goodness, chastity, morality. He is hostile to real Christianity, true Christianity. He is hostile to the same things his master (Satan) is hostile to. He may be friendly to nominal Christianity, or modern popular sugar-coated apostate Christianity. He may even call himself a Christian. But he is hostile to real Christianity. The following are the words of Jesus to his disciples (and to all who would follow him):

John 15:18-20 If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.

Anti-Christian discrimination. The modern western (Christian) world is a giant Sodom, wicked in the extreme, depraved in the extreme. In such an environment the true Christian can expect to incur the dislike and hostility of many. He can expect discrimination. Jesus warned us of that and there is good reason why it is so: wickedness cannot stand goodness. Birds of a feather flock together. Birds of different feather don’t flock together. Goodness and badness don’t mix.

Discrimination in the workplace. A person has to eat. He has to support himself (and his family). He has to earn a living in some way. A Christian may find himself having difficulty getting a job or keeping a job. If he has a job, he may find himself under pressure to submit to immoral demands. Working for the wicked has its dangers. A Christian has good reason to be concerned about anti-Christian bias in the workplace. How can a Christian best live in a highly wicked and hostile society? It is a question I have often reflected over. I think a Christian would do well to find a way of supporting himself where he doesn’t work for others. In pondering the question, I always come back to my idea of a “Christian Brotherhood”, an Amish style community such as I have described in the article Christian Brotherhood.
