Something to chew on....

Christians possess a divine privilege that the world cannot have: they have been given the mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:16) and are empowered by the Holy Spirit to know the Truth (1 John 2:20). But the church has deferred much of this gift to the popular scientific ideas of today, abandoning its divine right to the Truth.

…many churches are doctrinally and morally weak. Many, many people are thirsting for something stronger than ambiguous stories and unanswered questions on the origins of life, and they seek confirmation of the holy nature of a God who is often portrayed as cruel and untrustworthy.

How can the church impact the world for Christ if so many professing Christians mistrust their God and the revelation He gave to them? Why accommodate the secular and often blatantly atheistic world, when the biblical worldview answers the many questions that the world cannot? The Bible offers the power of the true gospel, and despite the protestations of the relativistic culture, people are hungry for Truth.
