We believe that we are in a spiritual war because many societal values are changing, in our opinion, for the worse. Critics will ask us why we are being authoritarian, judgemental, and warlike. We may well argue that satan is a clever pied piper that is leading the majority down a destructive path which seems good but is not.
"We're at war," is often an excuse for throwing morality out the window.
"Come all of you cowboys and don't ever run As long as there's bullets in both of your guns" -- Woody Guthrie
