Despite the call to be salt and light to the world, many Christians are hiding out in our churches, afraid to face the problems that our ever-changing culture presents. We donít like what we see out there and are uncertain about the future.
Rex Rogers demonstrates that to overcome this ìcrisis of confidence,î Christians must develop a biblical worldview, which means applying our faith to an understanding of the times and the world in which we live. We must grant fellow Christians the liberty to choose differing positions on what are essentially nonmoral issues. Only then can we move beyond isolationism, judgmentalism, and petty bickering and have an effective witness in the world.
