|The Rise of Western Lawlessness|
The principle enemies of Christianity, according to St. Paul, are spiritual strongholds and those ideological arguments which run contrary to the wisdom of Christ. The antagonistic religious, philosophical, and political systems opposing Christ are easily observable and can be traced throughout western history. The Rise of Western Lawlessness documents the progression of man-centric thought, from ancient times to the present, so that God's people might "bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ."
This book is written in a narrative non-fiction style and includes powerful Bible verses to contrast God's thoughts with the feeble thoughts of man. The narrative has been prayerfully assembled to lead the reader on a journey of discovery through 3,000 years of western development. Historical references guide the reader through all of the concepts needed for understanding the problem of lawlessness. Lawlessness is mentioned in 2nd Thessalonians as an ungodly state of civilization that will exist at the end of the age, and the Lawless One is typically equated with the Antichrist. The Book of Romans describes fallen man's slavery to uncleanness as "lawlessness leading to more lawlessness." At this crucial time in human history it is imperative that Christians recognize lawlessness and understand its destructive nature.
