So far the book seems to be about the lack of prayer in the Church and it's people and how THAT is what is bringing about the downfall of the church and Christianity. Not the government, the politicians, the laws being passed, the increased secularism, etc. But lack of quality time with Christ in the form of prayer. Whether it be corporate, individual, in homes, in churches, in your car on the way to work. This was hard for me to understand at first because I look at the world and think- of course it's the government, politicians, etc. But when you really look at it, it IS the lack of prayer. And it started a long time ago and has had a domino affect over the ages. I won't try to go more into that because, as I said, I am a fairly new Christian and Mr. Cymbala can and does explain it far better than I.
I know the two things that shocked me the most was the real statistics of who really is Christian in this nation (it is NOT what you think percentage-wise) and that there are churches out there that do not have prayer, nor do they encourage it. I do not get that AT ALL. Jesus says in the Bible his house (church) will be a house of prayer. Yet there are churches with no prayer. That's just one thing that points to why all is circling the drain- other than the fact that the Bible said it would. Thankfully my church does include prayer in everything it does and we have prayer meeting outside of regular services.
I highly encourage this book. Pastor Cymbala is hitting the nail on the head in this message and we all need to hear it.
It is also a powerful wake up call to all Christians...about the simplicity (not easy...only simple) of the role of Christ in the world and the role of us in Christ and in the world. It is a very important read.
