Ryk, a friend of mine, did a survey about Christianity and shared his findings. The results parallel other surveys' findings, and it's depressing. Christians are ignorant of the Gospel.
It appears the pressure is rising for Canadian and American Christians again. We still have it easy compared to the rest of the world, though that won't remain the case. Why are Christians persecuted? The same as anyone, we're different. It's not only us. It's Romans 12:2 in action...
If I were to recommend only one book other than the Bible to a person, it would be Mere Christianity.
If we look like the culture, why would people bother to come to Jesus as we represent Him since they have what they want now?
