Colliding With the Culture

The theme of our recent Mandate Conference was COLLIDING WITH THE CULTURE. Culture is shaped over time by our values and beliefs that are repeated in practical ways. The Latin term for CULTURE means TO CULTIVATE. Culture is cultivated by plowing and planting consistently over time.

I John 5:19 describes the secular culture we are called to penetrate in our day. John tells us that the whole world is under the sway of the wicked one. This is a SECULAR culture that is pushing God out. This is a HUMANISTIC culture that is setting human beings as their own gods. This is the culture we are assigned to COLLIDE with.

Babylon is a biblical word that describes this culture. It means CONFUSION BY MIXTURE. There is a mixture of belief systems, ideologies, and moral standards that causes great CONFUSION in the minds of many people.

We need to understand that he who controls the minds of a culture controls the land. Alice Bailey – a New Age guru – has played a BIG part in influencing European and American minds. She was born in 1880. She made a pact with a demonic Grand Master. She opened her spirit to guides from the spirit world, including a master from the Tibetan world. She wrote many books, claiming she was dictating what he said. She came up with a plan to set people free from the “restrictions” of Christianity so that they can enjoy the liberty of life. Her principles have been implemented in the Western world as LAW, including her influence in the foundational aspects of the United Nations. Her plan (which is really Satan’s scheme) therefore works.

We need to know that Alice Bailey (who started writing in 1918) focused on Europe. Europe was the focus of Christianity at that time. Her plan was to create a new world order and to introduce anti-Christian values. Bailey said: “Don’t bother with the adults; target the children. If you can change the children little by little, every generation will be more susceptible to THE PLAN than the one before it. Eventually it will become the normal way of thinking.”

THE TEN STRATEGIES OF THE PLAN – Alice Bailey
1. Push God out of the schools. If the people grow up without reference to God, then they will consider God irrelevant to day to day life. In the last sixty years this has happened. God is irrelevant to most people.
2. Break the Traditional Judeo-Christian Family Concept. Break communication between parents and children so that parents can’t pass on spiritual values to their children. Do this by pushing excessive child rights.
3. Remove restrictions on sex. Sex is the biggest joy and Christianity robs people of this. People must be freed to enjoy it without restrictions. It’s not just for married, it’s for everybody.
4. Since sex is the greatest expression of man’s enjoyment of life, man must be free to express sex in ALL its forms. Homosexuality, orgies, even bestiality are desirable so long as no one is being abused or harmed.
5. People must be free to abort unwanted children. If a man can have sex and then live without the consequences, then the same should be true for a woman too. A woman must have the right to abort an unwanted child.
6. Every person develops soul bonds, so when a soul bond wears out a person must be free to divorce. When one starts to “grow”, one must be free to get together with whoever they want even if they are married.
7. Defuse religious radicalism. Christianity says JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY. Defuse this by a) silencing Christianity and b) promoting other faiths (the creation of interfaith harmony).
8. Use the Media to Influence Mass Opinion. Create mass opinion that is receptive to these values by using TV, film, the press etc.
9. Debase art in all its forms. Corrupt music, painting, poetry and every expression of the heart and make it obscene, immoral and occultic. Debase the arts in every way possible.
10. Get the church to endorse every one of these nine strategies. Get the church to accept these principles and to say they’re OK (then legal ground is given for these values to get a foothold).
Conclusion: Is Alice Bailey succeeding? Are the powers that controlled her mind controlling the minds of people in Europe and America? Have these principles succeeded in weakening Christianity in the Western world? YES! The plan works!

This is the cultural mind set we are assigned to COLLIDE with. One of the effective ways we have of penetrating and influencing the culture is addressing all ten of Alice Bailey’s points by bringing the opposite view, which is the biblical, kingdom view.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
