In a world and country that is increasingly hostile to the ways of Christ, it’s easy to lose perspective and begin fighting the wrong battles. The battle for our culture is important, no doubt about it. At the same time, it is not the most important fight. Even if we lose the battle for the culture, God’s plan will carry on undeterred. If you’re like me, it’s hard to not be dismayed at the moral decline all around us.

To see it unfold in my lifetime has been both sobering and maddening.
