Its a result of Christians abandoning the culture.

Nope most Christians have not given up. Hope doesn't come from this world but rather through Christ. The Bible warns us we will be hated and we are the minority.

We need more Christian music, movies, literature. This false worldview is winning because there is no alternative.

It's out there more than ever before if you simply look for it. Thanks in large part to a legally blind preacher and his wife plus Bill Gaither's efforts Southern Gospel took off and can be found on TV. Many sermons are available 24/7 as well. Family TV shows or movies? Get Direct TV or Dishnet and it's there.

The Gospel has indeed been literally spread now to all nations. The Prophecies of communication, knowledge, and travel as foretold in Daniel have come to pass. It isn't the Christians abandoning the culture rather it's a majority of non believers rejecting Jesus Christ with prejudice. The few Christian sects that have abandoned GOD's Laws you have to ask were they ever Christian churches to start with? United Church of Christ harbors some of the most radical "get GOD out of our nations face and out of public venue" so called preachers. Again were they ever Christian to start with? Some maybe perhaps.

The moral collapse was started in the 1930's a quiet planned low key infiltration from Marxist Germany that Hitler kicked out. Columbia University invited them here. From them came the 1960's campus riots and college take overs. The phrase "Make love not war" was also their product. Added to that was Lyndon Johnson's Great Society where fathers were told go do your thing the government will raise your kids and btw moms more babies means more money.

From there TV began an abrupt change. Norman Lear I think was the name of the man had a liberal agenda and thus All in the Family and other shots aimed at Conservative Christian stereotyped Dad began.

It hit the music industry hard as well. Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll. Rock became so tainted it encouraged kids to seek out destruction. Some left the industry in disgust at the heights of their careers over that. Remember the group Kansas? A decent bad lyrics wise. The key song writer Kery Livgren left the band after becoming a Christian. With him he took the bass player who had a serious drug addiction problem. That bass player is now a Priest. Livgren stayed involved in music but not to a destructive degree. The group America had Dan Peak. He too left the industry. The ones who lead normal lives you don't hear about. You never heard about Alice Cooper after he straightened out. Some artist in Rock and in Country as well are trying to reverse the impact and get both their secular and Christian music out there. One of the most sucessfull is Ricky Skaggs.

Don't get me wrong there is still good secular Rock out there but parents need to read the darn lyrics before allowing it in their home. Review TV as well. The Occult and the fascination with it is now all out in the open and being glorified. In my childhood Devil Worshiping was not heard of as such. It was considered kookery. My first encounter with one such person came in the Navy in the late 1970's. It's a shame too as much talent as AC/DC had they wasted it on garbage like Highway to Hell.

The Master is allowing the wheat and the chaff to grow together in the same field to harvest time when separation shall come.

This is why I don’t watch these circle jerk award shows, and also why I haven’t set foot in a movie theater in about 20 years.

There is also the “Dove Awards” for Christian music.

"Nope most Christians have not given up."

I strongly disagree. Probably 50% of Christians are totally on-board with the Grammy awards and all other manifestations of contemporary "culture." Another 10-20% are a bit out of touch with it, but don't take it seriously. Probably only about a third of professing Christians were really offended by the Grammy's tonight.

Oh conservatives have given up for sure. Gimme Shelter the conservative movie that opened this weekend ranked number 22 and didn’t even make a million dollars. No wonder Hollywood doesn’t make more of these movies. What a bomb.
