These last few years, I would say I identify as Christian. However, with that comes the knowledge that I'm not really an example of what Christ wants me to be.

Among the shitposting and memeing, the worldly politics and mind-bending comms games, and the gradual dissipation and breaking down of an entire fake media matrix, how does everyone manage to stay uplifted?

I get hopium fixes from the usual crew we tend to listen to, but that really only covers geopolitical matrix games. It can be hard to maintain faith in one plan, let alone God's ultimate plan.

How do we navigate this in a Christian way?

Do you guys have any preachers or pastors, or biblical decoders you listen to? Any podcasts, audiobooks, videos?

I don't want to hyperfocus as much on the deceptive war games and get lost in a mental fog of war.

I guess I just get a bit terrified sometimes, that the earthly things are distracting me from really getting to a good place spiritually.

I know we all generally share similar values, and I respect the opinions of those able to see past at least some of the curtains of the show.

I guess I just wish I knew how to do more to bring Jesus into my life.

Any advice from wiser crazies than I?

Love ya, you nimble navigators.

If you are looking for some books with a firm foundation, I like RC Sproul.
In particular, Essentials of the Christian Faith, Faith Alone, (Which will give you some of the history of the Reformation) and The Invisible Hand are three I'd recommend.

Same applies to Ligonier Ministries videos, podcasts, etc.

Navigation in a Christian way is more about realizing we are always under grace and it is never about working (on our own) our way to Christ , heaven or anything else, because without Him. we can do nothing. I'd recommend reading Galatians through, Slowly.
