  1. We believers need to pray that the Lord will send more labourers to His vineyard. Thanks for sharing Haden

  2. I think there’s a golden-past fallacy at work here. You have to remember that at the same time that her so-called “committed Christians” were there norm, it was also normal to think that being left-handed, dancing, and playing cards were against the Bible, that the fruit Eve ate from was definitely an apple, and that since the King James Bible was good enough for Paul, there was no reason to make any other translations. Being culturally Christian has not been the same thing as being a committed Christian in centuries. The only difference is that the information age has made it easier to demonstrate the cultural “Christian” artifacts of the previous generations for the smoke and mirrors that they are, and too many of the old-guard “committed Christians” are holding too hard and too fast to an illusion of a Christian Nation that never existed and a Christian Culture that was more pagan than they are willing to admit.

  3. Loved this article. Just wanted to clarify, too, though that Mormons are Christians, and most who I know, myself being one too, are committed Christians.

  4. I do like the aspect of parents recognizing and taking a deeper role in the raising of their own children. Sounds…obvious, right? Not so much. While I grew up in the 80’s it was a fact that most of the kids around you were Christians, and went to church on Sundays. But somewhere an entire generation of parents thought it was up to others to instruct their children. Teaching Jesus- that’s what the Sunday school is for. Sex Ed- that’s why they go to 6th grade. My wife and I found ourselves outside of this circle for one reason, nope…not Christians. We were together at 15 years old and had our first kid at 16, and a total of 3 by 21. Ya, I don’t recommend that! But it has now been 27 years. We were children raising children. We did not have help from parents and did not have a church for the first few years. This meant as we learned about life, we taught our children the same things we were learning. We never sugar coated anything with our children. which means when we finally started going to church, they rarely went to children’s church. Whatever revelation we were learning, they were learning. We would then talk about those things as a family. This led to my oldest son being baptized in the spirit when he was 5 years old. My daughter was laying hands on people when she was 4. Now they are all adults and not only are they the strongest followers of Christ I know, but my best friends.
    While I agree with much the writer says. I believe a revival to the ways of the past are not the answer. Like someone posted above me, too much corruption, and the traditions of man being taught as Christianity.
    But what is coming…is a revolution. It is The Great Awakening!
