A Weblog Dedicated to the Discussion of the Christian Faith and 21st Century Life
I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

The Church Has an Identity Crisis
The church in the 21st century West faces an identity crisis which it must resolve. Is the church going to be the people of God Jesus called it to be making disciples for the purpose of making disciples, or will it continue to grasp after a Christendom past that is almost used up never to return? Will the church in the West move into the future as God's one, true nation or will it seek once again to make an earthly nation Christian when in reality it never was?
