Satan Never Quits
In case you are wondering and have not decided, the answer is absolutely, yes. Satan does exist, and he is wandering happily throughout the American culture during modern times seeking the ruin of souls. He has many tools: immoral sex; money; cohabitation; greed; envy; murder; hate; Godless living behavior. All of these surround us on a daily basis 24/7. There is no end, only if God wishes it.
Each year during lent prior to Easter Christians are reminded of how Satan three times tempted Jesus during his forty days away from everyone as He prayed and meditated. After the third temptation Jesus said to Satan, “I know who I am. You shall not tempt the lord thy God.” With those words Satan departed a big loser.
Satan hates Jesus with an everlasting passion, and he never gives up trying to win souls away from God for all eternity. Now, during modern times, Satan is unbelievably successful. Practicing Christians clearly knotice that is what is going on constantly around them.
Satan has modern favorites: immoral sex and money. Sex and money are not inherently evil. They become evil when Satan uses them as a tool for sinfulness, and he is working overtime using them for sinfulness in our modern world. The thanks can be given to the counterculture people living the philosophy. Sex becomes evil through cohabitation, infidelity, prostitution, rape, child abuse, homosexuality, teen sex, etc. These evils are running rampant in America's modern culture. Satan uses money as a tool for evil very frequently. Murders are arranged and carried out for money. Prostitution exists primarily because of the money that changes hands. Money is stolen. Banks are robbed. The worship of money has replaced the worship of God in so many lives, and Satan loves that tremendously.
When the Roman soldiers were nailing Jesus to the cross he asked His heavenly Father to "forgive them for they know not what they do." Something similar can be said to the counterculture people, “forgive them for they opened a giant can of worms which has permeated the culture ever since." It is so sad to realize that so much evil behavior is accepted as normal everyday behavior. The American culture is on the ropes and will never again be rehabilitated. It can only become much worse.
