In my opinion, many nations are conscious of God’s presence. Of course the disclaimer is these are the gods of their choice. However, Psalm 2:4, “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.”
In my opinion it’s as if the world has lost its collective mind. Just a few recent examples.
Here in the United States we seek to open portals.

China constructs a huge statue to a god of war.

“A 1,320-ton sculpture of the Chinese god of war “Guan Yu” has been unveiled in Jingzhou city, central China’s Hubei Province. The fearsome bearded warrior stands 58 meters tall and watches over the panorama of the city and its people with a grave and dignified bearing.”

Add to that cross breeding combining human and animal DNA. So many moral questions. What happens to the product of such a hybrid? Does a chimera have legal rights?

One only has to research the pagan gods such as Dagon sometimes pictured as a merman. Pagan priest would often dress in what looked like fish scales. As an aside, the Pope's "Mitre" hat is often call a fish head hat. The ancient Egyptians' national patron god Horus is usually depicted as a falcon-headed man. So do chimers harken back thousands of years? Is there really anything new under the sun?
As for the impact of “political correctness” on the Church and believers today, where does one start? God was kicked out of our school in the 60s, the era of free love. The U.S. Supreme Court made abortion legal in the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. Now two generations later, we have young people in college who need a safe place. As for Christianity, it has been referred to as child abuse in some allegations.
Churches have given the government major control over them to maintain their 501(c) tax exempt status. Prosperity tele-evangelist such as Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen are motivational speakers rather than presenter of the true gospel plus they have multimillion dollar estate. Winters I attend a Bible based Assembly of God church where pastor shares the true and politically incorrect Gospel and lives in a very modern home on church property.
The famous sermon by the fire and brimstone preacher from the 1700s, Jonathan Edwards, “Sinners in the hands of an angry God” would not likely be considered acceptable today and certainly not politically correct. Much of what is preached from the pulpit today is politically correct and presents loving God rather than a righteous God of judgment who currently continue to hold back His wrath.
