In the book of Acts, when the governmental leaders spoke of the early disciples, they referred to these men and women as the ones, “turning the world upside down.” Can we make the same declaration today? If the Bible is true, then we serve the most potent Force in the universe, the epitome and Creator of love… and humanity. So why hasn’t that impact reached every facet of this society?

We tend to think that the problem is external. Our slow decline in culture is the fault of things like our Christian-resistant media, modernist progressive ideologies, the radical left wing or our secular academic institutions.
