Unfortunately most of the mainstream media today is secular and liberal, often antagonistic toward Jesus and His followers and delighting in the cynical and base.
I believe there is a strong majority of Americans who, even if they do not follow Christ, are sympathetic to His followers and see wisdom and value in His teachings. They understand our history as a Christian nation.
We serve a risen Savior and His word has not changed. To effectively engage our culture and impact it for Christ we must be grounded in God's word and centered in His will through Jesus. Then our writing, speaking, relationships etc, will reflect God's perspective and help our society make sense of contemporary issues.
Darwinism, for example, should never have been allowed to rock the Church the way it did. The fact that a weak theory put forth by a mortal being caused Christians to doubt God and His word speaks of a Church not grounded in the Word, not convinced of Jesus's claims and not willing to step out of its comfort zone to draw a line in the sand.
In Matthew 16, Jesus asked His disciples who He was. Peter answered that He was the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Then Jesus answered, "And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it."
Gates don't advance. They may swing but they can't march! If the gates of Hell can't overcome the Church, Jesus must have intended for us to advance against them, against Hell and all that generates from it and the devil.
Spending time every day in His word and listening to Him will give us the courage to storm the gates of Hell and turn our nation around!
I love the Lord and love writing about Him. He is my husband, my best friend and my Lord and Redeemer!
