there has been some interesting critiques of the left, by the left of late. They argue that the left in its inception was a champion of freedom of speech and the voice of the average 'man' on the street. Today, they have become the chief cause of the suppression of individual liberty and far from giving the man on the street a voice, they have become elitist and prefer instead to control the thoughts of the average person.
Agree! culture contained complacent christianity will NOT successfully combat Islam. The writing is on the wall.
the modern left is just extreme fascism!
love the tie!
I think it is wishful thinking to imagine that a robust Christian culture will affect the growth of Islam. People tend to be committed to the faith of their upbringing. Islam is growing in this country with full knowledge of robust Christianity, and it makes no difference.
Yes, we need to evangelize, but the issue is that this country is entirely secular culturally. There is no real interaction between Christianity and Islam, they exist separately in their respective secular bubbles.
Dr. Craig is right about the need for robust Christianity in America (the West), but what we have now is Christianity in chaos, and falling steadily behind a growing secular movement. Hence, Islam is growing here basically unchecked, and at a moderate and somewhat steady rate. Otherwise, one would not see grassroots organizations like "ACT for America" so outraged at the spread of Islam here, and working to combat it. As far as France is concerned, this is a far cry from the "French Wars of Religion" which took place between 1560 - 1621, and beyond. How things change. Of course, Dr. Craig offered a solution, and I did not, but I will be eager to agree with his.
Nice message at 6:15 Dr. Craig.
