Stepping through Troubled Times is a cry in the wilderness. It cuts through the media hype and fear mongering to show why Americans must stand strong. Biblical truth reveals a clear parallel between political liberalism and the lost nature of man as evidenced by fear of global catastrophe and widespread religious hypocrisy. A subtle tyranny has grown out of failure to accept responsibility for our own actions and developed into a cry for government to provide all our needs. Dr. Nelsen focuses the Word of God upon both the political unrest and our personal failure of faith which has led America down the destructive path towards socialism.
The reason for the Stepping through Troubled Times is two-fold:
(1) Confusion of Americans: Patriotic Americans and Christians in general are confused by the media hype and fear-filled news reports that inundate our daily lives. Political correctness and hypocrisy is pervasive in our culture. Discerning truth has become much more difficult in recent years. Moral relativism has replaced the awareness of right and wrong. Immoral behavior is more acceptable in this generation than ever before. Tolerance of evil has become a requirement, and Christian values are seen as bigotry.
(2) The depth of our trouble: Most Americans are unaware of the extent of socialist ideology in our government and society. Soft tyranny has invaded our thinking and legislative action has restricted the fundamental freedoms envisioned by the Founding Fathers. Our God-given liberties have been codified into law for government to provide. God has been taken out of the picture, and America as a nation is drifting rapidly into a Marxist ideology.
