In case you didn’t know, we live in a post-Christian culturePhil Cooke says, and I agree, that it’s important to understand this, going forward.  Thoughts?

    I understand what Phil is saying, but not where he’s going. Every generation has it’s own brand of heathenism. Maybe Phil is suggesting we examine our methods of interacting with heathens? Our medium is a weak message at this point … to twist a phrase from Marshall M?

    i think he’s right. i hear so many Christians speak of some idyllic past of one kind or another…”our founding fathers” are often assumed to have been upright Christians but let’s look at their Masonic ties and reevaluate, people! i take all these things with a grain of salt because while there may have been more Christians at various points in the past, i’m sure there were some nominal ones and people just fitting in with what was the norm. just like how it’s cool today to be the rebel. don’t expect people to act and think like Christ if they don’t truly follow him. i think he’s saying be aware and learn how to communicate with people who do not share your worldview. what we do know about the future of Christianity is that before Christ returns everyone will know who He is and either accept or reject his free gift of salvation from sin and hell.

    Jazz makes my point well, I think. ” … while there may have been more Christians at various points … etc.” The admonition to ” be aware and learn…” was just as necessary back then as it is now, except that then we thought that in order to be separated from the world we needed to be isolated, in many ways, from the world. And even then, there were Phil Cookes.

    Nothing new under the sun.
