Christians are losing the ideology wars…

Hindus believe there are many paths to God, while conservative Christians have been taught Jesus is the only way. Jesus Himself said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (Jn. 14:6). But according to a 2008 Pew Forum survey, “65 percent of us believe that ‘many religions can lead to eternal life’—including 37 percent of white evangelicals, the group most likely to believe that salvation is theirs alone.”

It would seem that conservative Christians are rapidly losing the ideology wars. I believe this is because we often do not have a biblical worldview ourselves. Having raised the last two generations of believers on the back of entertainment, instead of solid teaching of the Word, we have not equipped them to grapple with the Scriptures and the opposing philosophies and religions that surround us. In order to begin to correct these deficits, we must return to a serious commitment in our churches of proclaiming the whole counsel of God.
