    It is OK but where is the biblical alternative?

    Nancy did a great job rehashing Francis Schaeffer's themes into one book. However, like Schaeffer's works, and many other worldview writers, she did not present an alternative biblical worldview to counter the secular worldview. Francis Schaeffer wrote the book "How Shall We Then Live" which presented a great history of how we got where we are, but he never presented a biblical alternative to derive the particulars of a biblical worldview. What we need at this time is an analysis of how we can get out of this moral mess we are in as a nation. Our churches have been compromised, we are losing our kids to the secular culture and the government has been taken over by secularists and progressive Marxists. However, what I hear from many Christian leaders is "not to worry" since we are going to be "raptured" any second now. No wonder the kids reject Americanized Christianity in its current form. It makes Jesus and his church out to be losers against the omnipotent Satan and the anti-Christ. Jesus was apparently deluded when he commanded us to "disciple the nations." Did he not know that prophecy teaches (according to La Haye) that we are going to lose? And since we are going to lose to the all powerful Satan - why bother trying to redeem the culture? As dispensationalist D. L. Moody used to say regarding cultural redemption, "Don't bother polishing brass on a sinking ship!" In other words, we are destined to lose, so don't try to change things. In fact, some leaders teach the rapture is so close that we do not even have time to disciple our own people, much less the nations of the world. The only problem with this belief is that it is open rebellion to what Jesus commanded us to do. We are commanded to disciple the nations in spite of what the future looks like. I suggest that people actually investigate the historical origins of the dispensational theology that has neutered the evangelical churches. They need to understand how it has undermined the covenant theology upon which this nation was built. They should then investigate the covenant Reformed theology which fueled the Reformation and led to the establishment of our nation (Read "The Legacy of John Calvin: His Influence on the Modern World" and "Who Are We" - by Samuel Huntington). I really appreciated Nancy's analysis of current church leadership and its misguided emphasis on the Superstars. Pastors are supposed to serve the sheep, not use them to further their fame and celebrity status. While the arts are an important aspect of culture, it is only one aspect. We lack a holistic worldview that addresses all areas of life. Calvin's work came closest to establishing the intellectual framework for a holistic biblical worldview.
