Wokeism is a Demonic Counterfeit

“You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” – James 4:4

There’s now a whole secular cult called wokeism. It’s a non-religious but highly spiritual pagan cult that has overtaken Western culture. Everything God creates, Satan counterfeits. Woke is the opposite of being born again. In Christianity, you’re born again; in wokeism, you’re awakened to see how you’re a “victim,” not a villain. In wokeism, you’re a good person, not a bad person. Nothing in you needs to change, but everyone else needs to change how they respond to you. In Christianity, when you get saved and are born again, you get baptized. The counterfeit of that in woke culture is coming out of the closet. That’s their way of taking their private beliefs public and no longer being ashamed of their shameful behavior. Everything I’m saying here is highly offensive to the world, but it is fact. 

Today, the culture sees the Bible, and the God it reveals, as evil, bigoted, patriarchal, oppressive, and unjust. This includes social justice and demonic groups like Black Lives Matter, whose original mission statement on their own website said the following (until it was taken down and curiously removed from the internet): 

We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead. We…do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women[.]…We build a space that…is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered[.]…We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in the private even as they participate in public justice work. We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure[.]…We foster a queer-affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intent of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).

The only thing left that provides some sanity, some sense of order and law for human life and flourishing, is the Word of God. No longer is a grown man in a princess dress wearing lipstick a minority weirdo. If you want to truly be a radical minority today, read your Bible and believe the crazy parts like God is your Father, Jesus is the Son of God, and you too are a son of God. That will make you a complete weirdo in our day when the weirdos are now the majority. 

There has always been, and will always be, constant conflict between the world and the Word. There was a day when Western culture was rather positive toward Christianity; we displayed the 10 Commandments in public places, expected our politicians to believe in God, and had our weddings and funerals in churches. The world then shifted to neutral in relation to the Church – people did not really care whether you went to church and, if you were a nice person, whatever you believed was seen as good for you. More recently, however, the world has become increasingly negative toward Christianity and the Bible. (1)

If you are a born-again Christian, you know and believe that the Word of God is the only source of truth in this fallen world. I implore you men to diligently watch out for woke influences trying to get into your marriage and family. We must not bend a knee to anyone or anything other than the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Come back for tomorrow’s devotional that includes some astounding marriage statistics. 

If you’re married, how can you protect your family from the influences of wokeism? If you’re single, how can you protect yourself from those influences while preparing for marriage and having a family?
