There’s a world of difference between being a veteran in peacetime and being deployed at wartime… and there’s a lesson in that for the Church here in America.
For a very long time, Americans have been enjoying the tangible benefits of the hard work of earlier generations. We have enjoyed the peace and prosperity that came from a culture heavily influenced by Christian faith and practice. We directly benefited from not one, but two ‘Great Awakenings’ as well as the evangelistic energies from parts of the 20th century.
That Christan worldview bled into our civics, our culture, our education, and our economy. It came to be taken for granted, and American pulpits lost their sense of urgency.
Eventually, America’s pulpiteers woke up from their nap, rubbed their eyes, and wondered how so much of America became apostate, and aggressively hostile to God, so quickly.
The Church wasn’t taking the job seriously in peacetime. Now, the Enemy has brought the fight to our doorstep.
A hostile environment often breeds a better kind of Christian. Question is, when the going gets ough, has America produced the kind of Christians that will step up, or top out?

From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
