"I don't need positive thinking; I need Jesus."

The dangers to Christianity in the U.S. aren't at the movie theaters, says Victoria Gaines. They're on every street corner, where Christians "look for a cushy life just because we're the King's kids":
If we pursued God's heart with the same vigor we pursue the American dream, our faith would earth-shattering. Our lives would be turned upside down--for the good of Christ, not our own comfort.

The power of the gospel to penetrate through so many layers of muck continues to amaze me. I've been pondering of late how much we engage in these battles of the mind because our hearts remain so far from God. Thanks to both of you for these insights.

Amen, Mike. I think you're right that we'd rather debate doctrine than really get down to living and worshiping as God calls us to do. Peace.
