What would you say is the most important KIND of Christian?
Think about it.
While answers will no doubt vary with the convictions of individual Christians, let me share a personal conviction. Given the state of the church and our nation, I’ll contend that the most important kind of Christian is the one who is actually making a positive difference.
To help equip you and other believers to be effective kingdom change agents at this crucial time in the history of the church and our nation, we’ve added two resources to The Apologist’s Arsenal:
The Great Evangelical Recession: 6 Factors That Will Crash the American Church and How to Prepare by John S. Dickerson.
The American church is on the precipice of a spiritual recession. Our overall membership is shrinking. Young Christians are fleeing. Our donations are drying up. Political fervor is dividing us. Even as these crises eat at the church internally, the once-friendly host culture of the United States is quickly turning hostile and antagonistic. How can we avoid a devastating collapse?
In The Great Evangelical Recession, award-winning journalist and pastor John Dickerson identifies six factors that are radically eroding the American church and offers biblical solutions to prepare us for spiritual success, even in the face of alarming trends. If you care about the state of the church in America, this is both your wake-up call and your road map to genuine hope.
How to Be an Atheist (Why Many Skeptics Aren’t Skeptical Enough) by philosopher Mitch Stokes.
Atheists Talk a Lot about the Importance of Skepticism. But the Truth Is, They’re Not Nearly Skeptical Enough. While atheists champion the importance of a critical stance toward religion, they often fail to take that same stance toward their own beliefs. This double standard results in grandiose claims about the certainty of their unbelief—which is logically inconsistent at best and intellectually dishonest at worst. Turning atheists’ skepticism around on their own naturalist worldview, philosopher Mitch Stokes critically examines two things that such skeptics hold dear—science and morality—and reveals deep inconsistencies among their most cherished beliefs, inconsistencies that undo atheism itself.
