The Time is Now, Friends.

Well, I haven’t published an article since July 1st. I don’t typically go that long without writing but you know how it gets. It’s summer; kids out of school, long overdue vacation, I even accepted a new position at a different company for which I’ll start soon. Quite a lot of happenings in my personal life.

But what I’m more concerned with right now is the happenings in this world. Let me go ahead and state, I don’t want to be here anymore. I am ready for my eternal home with Jesus. I look around and it’s extremely hard not to be discouraged. The fake administration in DC is threatening illegal mandates for experimental poison. School is returning soon and they’re trying to mask our kids again. They’re even flirting with more lockdowns. However, it’s not just what is happening in DC. Hollywood and corporations seem to be more blatant than ever in their pursuit for our kids. We’ve got Lil Nas X (the guy behind the seemingly innocent ear worm, ‘Old Town Road’) releasing music videos with nude men doing choreographed dances. Converse shoes releasing what can only be called Satanic shoes where their logo was exchanged for a pentagram while being marketed by a man in full demonic garb. But what really sent me over the edge was a tweet from a journalist (I hadn’t heard of her before this but she has a blue checkmark on Twitter so that from that what you will) who said that, and I quote, “Someone needs to create porn for children. Hear me out. Young teens are already watching porn but they’re finding hard core aggressive videos that give a terrible view of sex. They need entry level porn! A soft core site where everyone asks for consent and no one gets choked etc.” I can’t believe what I just had to type.

There is a lot to unpack here. Does it shock me that Lil Nas X has naked dudes in a music video? Not particularly. Am I floored that Converse has Satanic shoes and marketing? Unfortunately, not anymore. And while I’m not even really shocked that someone put porn and children in the same sentence, I am outraged. I’m beyond disgusted that someone took the time to put those words into the internet. But you already know she deleted the tweet and came out with the typical, “I didn’t properly explain myself, that’s not what I meant.” Oh, my bad. Please tell me that you didn’t mean that since kids (yes, kids – because that’s what young teens are) already have access to porn, that we should go ahead and give them some decent porn to watch. If you needed one more reminder that Satan himself is after your kids, there you have it.

The truth is that we live in a society where everything is justified and encouraged, and well, if you don’t support it too then you are an intolerant radical. And to that, I say, if doing everything in my power to protect my children from rampant evil means I’m an intolerant radical, then guilty as charged. I’m done with this nonsense. I’m over caring if I’m in the minority. I no longer care what this wicked world thinks of me. I care what God thinks. I care that the souls of our children are at stake. I care what the Bible says about love and marriage and sex. I care about God’s standard. I do not live according to the standard of man.

While I’m up here on my soapbox, let me take it one step further. If you think the events and actions taking place today are anything but an attempt to break down the human race, specifically the family unit, then you’re not paying close enough attention. For the last 18 months, they’ve tried to force isolation, causing suicide rates to increase. They’ve taken away facial recognition with masks that have been scientifically proven to be pointless in reducing viral transmission. They’ve killed your small business while Amazon is doing so well that their CEO had the money to fake a trip to space. They’ve singlehandedly ruined your child’s school experience with masks, fiberglass, and Zoom meetings. They’ve shoved alternative lifestyles so far down our throats that we’re choking to death. They’ve shamed anyone who believes in traditional values by equating them with demeaning terms such as archaic and neanderthal. The list is never ending.

So Christian friends, what do we do about this? Do we succumb to the ‘love thy neighbor’ doctrine that the modern church is pushing and say, ‘well, God is love so as you wish’?! For the love of every single soul in jeopardy, NO. Stop that. Stop perpetuating this weak image of Jesus Christ. He was not some pushover who allowed everyone to do as they please because He loved them. God IS love; so much so that He died for us. But God is also just and demands righteousness. Please take the time to read Isaiah 30. It is an excellent depiction of God’s sovereignty. It is also quite alarming how close it aligns with today. Everyone going their own way without regard for the ways of the Lord while He extends grace and pleads for their repentance before bringing judgement. We are in His Grace period right now. He is pleading for us to open our eyes to this wicked world and return to Him.

We MUST rise up. We have no choice. Fight for your families and for your freedoms. Stop putting trust in imperfect men and put your ultimate trust in God Almighty. Live your live according to His Word, no matter how hard it is. You will never be perfect, but thank God, He doesn’t expect us to be. He only expects us to lean on Him, for He is perfect in all His ways. The time is now.

Until next time,

Erica Lee
