Gradually, though no one remembers exactly how it happened, the unthinkable becomes tolerable. And then acceptable. And then legal. And then applaudable.
She was writing about assisted suicide, and yet so many of today’s hot-button issues are just as relevant to her point: abortion, gender, marriage, and the list goes on.
In a culture that values subjective truth over God’s absolute truth, we shouldn’t be surprised at our culture’s prevailing opinions.
But neither should we be dismayed.
God is still on his throne, and he is still moving in power.
In fact, we believe God is seeking to renew America in our lifetime.
In the latest book from Denison Forum, The Fifth Great Awakening and the Future of America, we offer a biblical path toward renewal and—we pray—the next Great Awakening.
As you’ll read, every Great Awakening was preceded by Christians desperate for a move of God in their community.
And that desperation started first with a desire to see God move within themselves.
Within The Fifth Great Awakening, you will read about:
- the history of the four previous Great Awakenings
- practical steps to help turn ourselves and then our country back toward God
Why is that important?
Because that history shows something strikingly consistent.
When God’s light seems to have dimmed, the Spirit moves through his people to help it shine again in powerful ways. And there is nothing about our present circumstances that would preclude him from doing so again.
Billy Graham was right: “To get nations back on their feet, we must first get down on our knees.”
Unless something changes quickly, the US will soon become a post-Christian nation.
The good news is that what we need to do, we can do—today.
Request your copy of The Fifth Great Awakening and the Future of America today to be inspired and challenged.
And pray with us that God will move in our lives, in your own life, and in the lives of Christians across this country so that we may witness another Great Awakening to God’s love, grace, and mercy.
