“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

My father has been dead for nearly 50 years. He was of an older generation that believed Christians' should hold themselves accountable to civic responsibility and their faith should be reflected in their public and private lives. Below is a quote of his about the Christian Church in the community.


“The Christian Church is the most stabilizing influence for any community and that influence is reflected in the interpersonal relationships of its people. This stabilizing and strengthening influence – supplied by Christians who are aware of their responsibilities to live under the direction of their God – has its effect also on their young folk: It is reflected in the schools; it has its effect in young people’s appreciation generally of things that are provided for them at all levels of government, as well as by their families. Not only are they easier to serve within the municipality, but they almost govern themselves. These are ideal people within any community.”
