Whatever happened to "Christian" America? American Christianity is under attack in this increasingly hostile climate, believers need knowledge . First they need biblical knowledge, and then they need awareness as to how many Christians in America are suffering for their faith. Deborah J. Dewart's Death of a Christian Nation offers a case-by-case look into how current laws and judicial decisions impact Christians' ability to apply biblical principles in the workplace. In each chapter, Deborah explains to Christians where they can turn for help. In her opinion, without this knowledge, our "Christian" nation will die.
Some believers may object to political action. After all, the church's mission is to preach the gospel, and we tread on dangerous ground when we perceive non-Christians as "the enemy" rather than persons who need Christ. But we cannot stand by idly while fellow believers suffer serious legal consequences for practicing their faith. Moreover, our freedom to preach the gospel is rapidly diminishing, and preservation of that freedom is vital to the church and its mission.
We must never forget our primary mission by becoming too entangled in political warfare, but neither can we hide our heads in the proverbial sand.
