Signs of evolution develop when someone or something experience subtle changes over time. Certain species of animals may go through genetic alterations as its ecosystem is impacted by disease, over population or the weather. Meanwhile, societies undergo spiritual transformations from generation to generation, either drawing near to God through revival or backsliding due to what I call the deviluation of a nation.
For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. – Genesis 3:5
Devilution is spawned by adding and or subtracting to God’s commands. Challenging, questioning and reinventing the rules attempts to create doubt within the minds of citizens. This atmosphere has inspired past writers like Saul Alinsky to promote curriculum in the form of Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals. If these teachings are embraced by enough leaders, a culture shift will begin amending beliefs, values and worldviews of a nation.
Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you. – Deuteronomy 4:2
When minds are persuaded to taste what was once forbidden fruit, justification and rationalization is conceived. Subsequently, right and wrong is turned to gray, genetically altering truth. A byproduct of this switch elevates opinions to fact status; thereby causing absolutes to disappear little by little. According to the Bible, these conditions breed demonic strongholds, Ephesians 6:12, enabling dark powers to deceive an entire region. If unstopped, the next generation will learn to do what’s right in their own eyes.
In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit. – Judges 21:25
May God help us all to do an about face so that the devilution of America will be replaced by a spirit of prayer and fasting.
