Don’t Put Your Light Under a Basket!

(By Dr. Micahel Brown) Whenever I hear Christian leaders talk about the inevitable collapse of the church of America (or elsewhere) I ask myself, “But hasn’t Jesus risen from the dead? Didn’t He ascend to the right hand of the Father? Hasn’t all authority in heaven and earth been given to Him? And aren’t we commanded to go and make disciples in His name and by His authority?”

If so, how then we can speak of any inevitable collapse of the church (or, specifically, of Christian society), regardless of how inevitable that collapse appears to human eyes?

I, therefore differ strongly with conservative journalist Rod Dreher, who has written that, “The culture war that began with the Sexual Revolution in the 1960s has now ended in defeat for Christian conservatives. … Don’t be fooled: the upset presidential victory of Donald Trump has at best given us a bit more time to prepare for the inevitable” (from his new book The Benedict Option: A Strategy for Christians in a Post-Christian Nation).

  1. It is good to see a Christian link like this. Keep the Holy Word strong in it. God is real and he is love and to have a relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is to experience real love. Someone once told me it is the little things we do for each other that matter most. Proverbs tells us his “glory endureth forever!”

    Keep it “real” and keep the faith my brother.
