Of course Christians cannot ‘join in’ the world’s cultural wars. We are citizens living in foreign land. We are ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:20) and priests (1 Peter 2: 9). Yet this secular piece is prescient. It reminds us, if of nothing else, that social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc) are becoming agents of the State. Or should that be the other way around? https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/19151/liberty-worth-the-fight

Rev Paul Langahm in his wonderful little book “Understanding Revelation” (2005) makes the point that towards the end of this world as we presently know it, big business and governments will in a sense morph into one. We are surely beginning to see this.
