No one was ever born in the wrong time and place. God places us both in the when and where we are according his will. No doubt, it’s dark time for the West. We are people under judgment. But God hasn’t called us to wallow in the ashes. He has called us to express our repentance through a joyful desire to build a holy culture where he has placed us.
