NEW YORK — Christian author Joe Battaglia breaks down the "intellectual dishonesty of political correctness" in his new book The Politically Incorrect Jesus and he recently stopped by CP Voice to discuss his latest book further.
The writer, who is also the founder and president of Renaissance Communications and has had a hand in promoting such films as "The Passion" and "God's Not Dead" feels Christians need to rise above the politics and polemics of the day as Jesus did. He also explained that no cause should trump the mission of Christ in a Christian's life.
"As I say in the book, whenever we raise the flag higher than the cross we have a problem," Battaglia told CP Voice. "People get confused. Any flag or any cause. [Because] Christ said when He gets lifted up, not when a political party gets lifted up, not when an idea gets lifted up, not even when His best representatives get lifted up, but when He gets lifted up He will draw all men to Himself." more >>
