Archives For moral decline

As 2013 winds down, I will be re-posting the top three original blog entries of this year. Included in the repost will be some fresh comments detailing why I believe these were so popular.

The third most popular post was: Do You Hate Your Life (at least parts of it)
The second most popular was: 8 Traits of Grace-Filled Leadership

and the most popular post of 2013 with fresh comments is……..Surviving in an Anti-God Society

—————

The airwaves of social media are laden with the demise of America. Christians are seen mourning over election results and some are stocking up on guns.

The question of surviving in an increasingly anti-God society seems to come up often.

I recently finished teaching the book of Daniel, which also asks this question. Daniel was taken captive from Jerusalem to Babylon. He was indoctrinated with the culture and customs of Babylon in an attempt to strip him of his Jewish identity. Daniel was forced to serve in a horrible, pagan government.

No More Doom and Gloom

April 25, 2012

This post is mostly for my American readers in hopes of bringing a different perspective to the sense of doom and gloom which pervades the United States. For my readers of other nationalities, here is a chance to focus on the good in America, not merely the mistakes highlighted by the global media.

The demise of Christianity in America is overstated.

If I take my cues from Facebook, Twitter, and the news reports I receive while overseas, one would assume American Christianity is going down the toilet.

Believers are a in virtual terror at the thought of the political party they support not winning. Claims of the moral decline of America clog the internet’s social media channels. I could easily assume I would be setting foot into a reincarnated Sodom and Gomorrah upon returning.

Yet, to the amateur eye, I saw a different perspective on the level of faith in the United States recently.
