For much of its existence, America has been defined as an extension of the conservative Protestant values of its first settlers. That worldview is rapidly vanishing in America, and Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, the policy arm of the Southern Baptist Church, says now is the time for the church to reclaim its mission.
"We were never given a mission to promote 'values' in the first place, but to speak instead of sin and of righteousness and judgement, of Christ and his kingdom," writes Moore.
His new book, Onward: Engaging the Culture without Losing the Gospel, offers a blueprint for how to speak to a culture that is not only indifferent to, but at times openly hostile to Christianity. more >>

"AiG points out that as a non-theistic religion, atheism is a belief system that attempts to explain everything in our world, including how the universe came to be and how one should relate to his fellow humans. As such, it's a naturalistic, comprehensive worldview (as opposed to a supernatural one) often referred to as secular humanism," Ham wrote on his Facebook page on Wednesday.
