Here is a staunch warning for those who have adopted modern American Christianity - Your form of Christianity is coming to an end. Your idols will be crushed, and your faith tested. God is judging the West, and bringing in tyrants to rule over us. He will purify and reform his bride, and that will require trials of fire. Those who repent and change their life to follow Christ will be strengthened, but those who turn aside to lies will wax worse and worse. 2 Timothy 3:12-13 2 Timothy 4:1-5 Matthew 13:20-21
How has American Christianity in particular been corrupted? Through syncretism, defined as "the combination of different forms of belief or practice", and specifically in relation to our acceptance of idolatry in our lives.
Listen to a sermon which details this idolatry and the consequences - "Judges 17 & 18 - Syncretism and Societal Ruin" https://youtu.be/JF7XCB5dkjc
"Syncretism brings decadence and decay to theological thought, which in turn brings decadence and decay to society, and to the governments of men." - Matt Trewhella
