It is, as we saw in the previous column, “public truth.” And as the cosmic announcement of the crucified and risen Jesus as King, this message stands at the heart of the Scriptural Story of our world. Public Truth, Minimal Change…

Can the Church Actually Restore Civility to Our Culture?

Can the Church Actually Restore Civility to Our Culture? by THOMAS MCDANIELS for Charisma News The last decade ushered in a shift in how we relate to those of opposing views. Civility in the areas of politics, religion, and government is stretched thin. This is certainly not the America we once knew.
