From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham
Believers are wise to consider accusations from others because it allows us a chance to examine the motives of our hearts and correct what may be wrong. But certainly not every accusation is justified.
Sometimes accusers lash out because down deep they know they are wrong and insist that their interpretation of what God declares in His Word is according to their way of living.
The architect of popular culture is none other than Satan. He is the chief designer and chief marketer, and he has been branding worldliness since the beginning of time. His methods are shifty and constantly in motion, changing fads, trends, and lifestyles to keep the world running in circles. Worldliness is an inner attitude that puts self at the center of life instead of God. Too many people today want a brotherly world in which they can remain unbrotherly, a decent world in which they can live indecently.
The Christian is beset by secular and worldly propaganda, but Scripture says, “Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him” (1 John 2:15 NASB).
