The problem in the world today seems to be that darkness is growing. The following quote, which I wholeheartedly agree with, from Henry Blackaby says it better than I can:
"If society as a whole seems to be getting darker and darker, it is not the problem of the darkness; the darkness is just acting like its nature.

Pastor Francis Chan gives great insight into this step in his message, " I'm not Your Moses".
