Morality has rapidly declined in America in the past few years. Culture seems to be descending into chaos on many fronts. I’d describe it as a cultural tsunami in which tolerance no longer reflects a willingness to listen to different points of view. It now means joining a revolution that seeks dominance.
How do Christians reach out in the name of Christ to a culture that is drifting further and further from its biblical moorings?
Renowned theologian, popular public speaker, and award-winning author, Dr. Erwin Lutzer says America’s religious institutions will either be complicit, complacent, or courageous in this cultural moment. Only the courageous will be effective messengers of the Gospel.
While it may seem like the sky is falling at times, our assurance and our hope are found in Jesus Christ.
Dr. Lutzer joined me in our studios for an important conversation that we’re airing on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Living a Life of Bold Faith.” He will help you understand today’s hot-button issues and equip you to stand firm in your faith while offering the love of Christ.
Dr. Lutzer says: “Does calling people to repentance produce harm? A deceptive view of love leads to a deceptive view of repentance.” “God’s Word cuts that it might heal; it wounds that it might bind us up; and it devastates us that it might redeem us.”
This discussion is inspiring and hopeful. Join us on your local radio station, online, on iTunes, via Podcast, or on our free phone app.
