Without God—no culture can survive. In fact, left to itself, civilization self-destructs!
That’s the bad news. The good news?
God loves the world—and preserves it through the gift of His Son, Jesus. And before Jesus left planet earth, he launched one of God’s best ideas: the church.
A recent article published by Religion News Service said that Americans are increasingly choosing not to identify with a religious tradition. And among young adults, one-third check “no religious affiliation.”
The church isn’t perfect—I admit! It’s the opposite of perfect.
It is weak, tainted and blemished. Because it’s made up of people.
But for some mysterious reason, God chose to accomplish His kingdom through the church. Through the true church, he preserves us from inevitable self-destruction.
But despite the uncertainty of our times, Jesus himself said, the very gates of hell will not stand against his church!
