“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

KNOW CHRIST AND SCRIPTURE
Truth is found in the Bible. It is immutable, the inerrant Word of God, our final authority in matters of faith, conduct and the cosmos.
Anything that contradicts Biblical truth is not truth. We read in 2 Timothy 3.1 "All Scripture is given by inspiration and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." In a time such as this when we are told wrong is right and right is wrong, cling to the Scriptures. Truth is not relative, ethics are not situational, strong faith is not a sign of weakness. Christ is truth.
Christ IS truth. Knowing Him and being conformed to His image is to draw near that final reality. Know Christ and His Word.
