I think it is becoming evident that the traditional conception of 'a Christian Life' - which was essentially about obedience to God's commandments - has become inadequate. Has become, indeed, harmful: evil.
For me, this has been brought to the fore by the fact of so many active, devout and observant Christians joining (showing all appearance of enthusiasm) with the demonically-evil Global Establishment core strategies of birdemic-peck healthism, CO2-climatism, and the leftism of antiracism and sexual revolution.
Since early 2020 there has been an unprecedented collapse of all the major Christian churches partly imposed, but willingly embraced and even amplified by the church leadership (I hesitate to call them 'priests' or 'pastors') - and blandly accepted by most of the laity.
Yet the colossal scale of this church collapse seems apparently to have passed unnoticed, is barely discussed, strenuously denied.
I interpret this as solid evidence that the 'model' of traditional Christianity, the model of what constituted a good church, a good Christian - was profoundly inadequate, fundamentally mistaken.
Because we have on the one hand Satan triumphant, blatant, obvious... The establishment of a global, a totalitarian 'world order' that is busily engaged in wholesale, accelerating, multi-pronged spiritual corruption; via all forms of social organization and institution...
And on the other hand, not just a comprehensive failure to discern this massive fact; but many positive attitudes and acts of support for this strategic worldwide scheme of damnation.
In other words, it is clearly possible, indeed easy, for someone to be a dedicated traditional Christian - an active church-goer, whose life is in accordance with the rules of living: one who studies and knows scripture, knows theology, spends significant time in in earnest prayer, meets with other Christians to study scripture and edifying books, does good works etc etc...
All this and more; and yet to fail the biggest and simplest task of of spiritual discernment - and thus to become an agent of totalitarian evil, a dupe of the devil.
In other words, as of 2021 it has become commonplace for 'exemplary Christians' not merely to comply with the demands of evil; but to join the side of evil in the spiritual war of this world.
This proves, to my satisfaction, that the traditional concept of 'being a Christian' is fatally inadequate; and that something more and/or different is necessary as a matter of extreme and personal urgency.
The simultaneous and overall failure of so many different denominations and types of Christianity is evidence that they all lacked what was necessary - and doubling down on old notions, or adding more to the list of externally imposed practices and rituals, will be useless or counterproductive.
What then - in general terms - should Christians do, how should Christians aim to live, in the world of 2021?
The answer would appear to be related to the concept of 'creation', active and chosen personal human creative activity: so long as 'creativity' be properly understood.
As Francis Berger has recently described well: each Man's role as a Christian here-and-now (however different it may have been in other times and places) requires a personal commitment to think and act creatively in-harmony-with divine creation.
This is necessary because 'the world' is already and necessarily being co-created by Men - that is, we our-selves supply the concepts by which the chaotic perceptual phenomena become knowledge.
There is no knowable 'objective' world out there and independent of Man's consciousness: We are all of us, all the time, unavoidably co-making, co-creating this world.
The huge problem is that this is co-creating process is mostly unconscious, and that many Christians deny it; or even regard the idea of individual Men actively creating as pride-full, reckless; regard co-creating as arrogantly evil-motivated.
But since co-creation by Man is real and unavoidable, this leaves the field open to Satan.
Thus modern Man is continually co-creating the world while unaware or in denial of the fact; and this creative activity has therefore been increasingly hijacked by the powers of evil; such that Mankind's co-creative activity is now substantially aligned with the Satanic agenda.
I don't just mean that creative people (in the obvious domains such as visual arts, writing, music etc) are overwhelmingly working for the Satantic agenda - this is obvious enough, but merely the tip of an iceberg which extends to all of our experienced-and-known life.
The major harm - a deep, wide and pervasive corruption - is in the actual observations, experiences and understandings of the mass of Men.
Because all our knowledge is being-made, moment-by-moment, with our own creative input; and because this co-creative input of each Man is denied by most Christians and has been externally-diverted by evil powers; therefore Modern Man is living life seen through Satanic Spectacles.
Modern Man does not perceive obvious evils - because his knowledge of the world has been unconsciously formed (co-created) using externally-derived evil concepts - without his knowledge.
Modern Man adopts attitudes and performs acts that are evil - under the impression that they are good; because he is habitually making his world passively, using Satanically-inverted values.
Modern Man sees good as evil; because his systems of evaluation are constructed with concepts that he has absorbed from The World; and the institutions of The World (the whole world) have been brought into overall alignment with the vast demonic strategy.
Each Christian absolutely needs to recognize that he is co-creating The World. It is a lethal error to suppose that God's creation lies outside of himself and that a Christian needs merely to conform to that external reality.
That whole attitude is wrong.
The Christian should recognize that he personally is contributing to creating the actual world; he should strive to become conscious of his own creating; and he should make the conscious choice to align his own inevitable moment-by-moment co-creating of reality with God's primary and pre-existing creation.
The key words are 'conscious' and choose.
First we need to be aware of what is-happening; then we make our choice:
Do we choose to ally-with God's real creation, or do we choose to ally with The System?... A System which is a product of Satanic, externally-imposed, passively-absorbed, this-worldly concepts.
Consciousness and choice are things that can only be done by each person, one at a time.
They are our responsibility, mine and yours - and (as of 2021) any avoidance of this individual responsibility is a de facto decision to join with the side of evil.
But, on the plus side; if we can become aware of co-creating and make the right decision of its alliance, and keep making it; our activity of co-creating reality will 'materially-assist' God's creative plans for this world: assist God immediately and personally, but also in the long-term and generally - by divine providence - in all kinds of unpredictable and unobservable ways.
Note added: Our ongoing co-creation of this world is taken from what Owen Barfield terms "figuration", in his book Saving the Appearances - and this book (if studied with care) is highly relevant to the above argument and our current condition. However, Barfield does not make an explicit link to the spiritual war, nor to our conscious choices of co-creation/ figuration being that of picking sides in that war - consequently, the argument of StA can (misleadingly) seem rather abstract, complicated, or even 'post-modern' (in its emphasis on choice). The spiritual distinction of God or Satan is implicit in StA, but I could wish that Barfield had made this core aspect clearer and simpler.
