Because a Good Word Bears Repeating

On the need for the Church to address the decay of the family in our culture:

This is not a rallying cry for Christians to be more aggressive in pursuing political action. Far too much of the church's efforts in recent years has been squandered trying to confront anti-family trends, such as abortion and homosexuality, through legislative efforts alone. Reform is no answer for a culture like ours. Redemption is what is needed, and that occurs at the individual, not societal, level. The church needs to get back to the real task to which we are called: evangelizing the lost. Only when multitudes of individuals in our society turn to Christ will society itself experience any significant transformation.

Yes ma'am! Hey you ought to read "I Sold My Soul on E-Bay". Terry has it and says it's fascinating to see how other's really (and articulately state)see Christians.

So far as I can tell, we're really screwing this up.
