American history is at a critical juncture. Critical Race Theory, cultural Marxism, and other troubling ideologies have gained a foothold. Our culture seems more unsettled than ever before.
A lot of people look for solutions in politics. Our civic duty to vote is an important part of influencing the culture for Christ, but our ultimate citizenship and allegiance is to God’s kingdom. We can take hope that God’s light often shines the brightest when circumstances are at their darkest and most bleak.
All of which makes today’s world an opportunity for Christians to be salt and light by recommitting to studying God’s Word and allowing the Holy Spirit to work through us into the lives of others – our families, our neighborhoods, our churches, and our communities. We are ambassadors for Christ, called to be prepared to “give a reason for the hope that is in us” (1 Peter 3:15).
To help you with that, I’m speaking with Dr. Os Guinness on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Rediscovering Faith in a Culture of Chaos.”
Os is a brilliant scholar and social critic who has devoted years of thought and study to the cultural chaos running rampant in America. I sat down with him on a recent visit to Washington, D.C. for a conversation that highlighted important lessons from history and exposed the origins of some of these godless ideologies. He offers practical, biblical guidance for understanding our culture, for living out convictional beliefs, and for engaging the world with truth and grace.
Before I close, I’d like to extend an invitation for you to become a special partner with us through our monthly “Friends of Focus on the Family” program. When you do, I’ll send you a copy of Dr. Os Guinness’ book, The Magna Carta of Humanity: Sinai’s Revolutionary Faith and the Future of Freedom as a way of saying thank you for touching others with the love of Christ. You’ll also receive member-exclusive benefits. To make your pledge, or for more information, visit our website or call 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
