The Book That Transforms

By August 21, 2017Day 05, Day 09, Day 14

I’ve recently started reading “The Book That Transforms Nations” by Loren Cunningham.  Just a few pages in, the author challenges us with some serious food for thought. Quoting economist / author Dr. Michael Schluter, Cunningham states that perhaps God judges a nation not by its income but by how well it obeys Scripture. He then cites several areas of society where America leads the way – one of the highest divorce rates in the world, millions of inmates in prison, and addictions to everything from drugs to gambling to pornography. And, what guides our moral decisions? What do we rely on to make life’s choices? Well, according to a Barna Group poll, most Americans make their decisions based on “feelings” or “beneficial outcomes” for themselves. That might not be a huge surprise to you, but here’s the rub. How can this be true when over 84% of Americans identify themselves as Christians? Obviously, we are not living our lives and making decisions according to God’s Word. Seems like that needs to change. Do you agree, or do you have a better explanation? Think it over, and then pray as God leads you.
