As Christians living in post-Christian America, we are experiencing a time of unprecedented cultural transformation and decline. Several of this week’s selected posts highlight some of the ominous challenges to our religious freedom. I believe that a proper understanding of the problems facing Christians is vital to our being able to stand for Christ and share the truth of the gospel in an increasingly dark society. Also, this week there are a couple of posts which share some exciting archaeological discoveries that once again speak to the truth of the Bible. As usual, I have tried to include a few posts to help pastors and church leaders lead more effectively and minister with understanding. Read and enjoy this week’s list, and I pray that this simple list equips you to better walk and live for Jesus.
