"We can't solve modern problems by going back in time. Retreating to the safety of the familiar is an understandable response, but God has called us to a life of faith. And faith requires us to face the unknown while trusting Him completely." Charles R. Swindoll
No doubt about it--the Post-Modern world is presenting challenges both to the Church in general and to us as individuals. How can we cope with the continual barrage of sensuality, political rhetoric, misinformation, changing morality, relative values, and the pleasure seeking/materialistic-centric culture that surrounds us? Sometimes the answers are neither clear nor simple, so, we just put a stake down and stand. Personally, it is a call for "me" to stand for God and respond to others with love and integrity. The scripture that comes to mind is a word from the Apostle Paul to Timothy.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV) RJD
