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?
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post that mentioned a flat world. I'm not talking about literally, but spiritually. Our spiritual topography looks like Kansas since we've taken the magic out of it. We disenchant reflexively but hunger for the magic again.
