You must create direction for yourself. Are you running through life learning what others teach you? Part of this life will be generally directed by others. Our parents direct us. Our elders and pastors direct our lives. The Christian authors we read direct our lives. But ultimately, does most of the direction of your life come from the theologians of the film world/sports/advertisements/clothing designers/secular artists/authors/etc.
Take for instance the Super Bowl half-time show. This was a worship service (in the words of Madonna) that saw Madonna as preaching a sermon to the largest audience in America. And yet most Christians will think of this as a well put together or show with no impact on their lives.
Look at the feminist movement or the attack on patriarchy. These beliefs have been pushed incredibly hard by the Marxists raised up in the Frankfurt schools of thought. The school that pumped out some of the biggest destroyers of culture today. We can see that their beloved ideology is being worked out into a reality in the destroyed families of today.
I think many people try to say there is some sort of neutrality in life. But in reality, you’re going to either take dominion or be taken over by others. Attacking life with vigor is something we have to do. We have to summon the moral courage to conquer the lies of neutrality, Marxism, socialism, and the man other outworks of these ideologies. It’s not as if it’s easy, to any extent.
What can you look back on that you have done in your life? Or are you being led around by the media from one Marxist ideology to another?

And that's great stuff.
"I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish."
Keep it up!
