Keep Christianity Strange.As the culture changes all around us, it is no longer possible to pretend that we are a Moral Majority. That may be bad news for America, but it can be good news for the church. Whats needed now, in shifting times, isMoreKeep Christianity Strange.As the culture changes all around us, it is no longer possible to pretend that we are a Moral Majority.

That may be bad news for America, but it can be good news for the church. Whats needed now, in shifting times, is neither a doubling-down on the status quo nor a pullback into isolation. Instead, we need a church that speaks to social and political issues with a bigger vision in mind: that of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

As Christianity seems increasingly strange, and even subversive, to our culture, we have the opportunity to reclaim the freakishness of the gospel, which is what gives it its power in the first place.We seek the kingdom of God, before everything else. We connect that kingdom agenda to the culture around us, both by speaking it to the world and by showing it in our churches.

As we do so, we remember our mission to oppose demons, not to demonize opponents. As we advocate for human dignity, for religious liberty, for family stability, lets do so as those with a prophetic word that turns everything upside down.The signs of the times tell us we are in for days our parents and grandparents never knew. But thats no call for panic or surrender or outrage. Jesus is alive. Lets act like it.

Lets follow him, onward to the future.
