Attack on Christianity: 10 Strategies Christ Used to Fight the Culture War

Attack on Christianity: 10 Strategies Christ Used to Fight the Culture War

by David M. Howard




Christians are being systematically persecuted by various political segments in the federal, state, and local governments, along with secular progressive principalities like the press and ACLU. Their goal? To dominate and diminish Christian influence in our culture. If nothing changes, persecution will only grow. It's time for Christians to stand up for religious freedom—but how?

In Attack on Christianity: 10 Strategies Christ Used to Fight the Culture War, Montana state senator David M. Howard calls and equips American Christians to engage in our increasingly hostile culture. He begins by laying out the progressive principalities' dependence on lies and their irrational attacks on the Bible, Christ, and absolute truth. He then highlights ten strategies Christ used to engage in the culture war while He walked on earth, strategies that demonstrate the need to unite in prayer, tactics, and public action for God's glory.

Through examining Christ's strategies, we are transformed from uninformed and uninvolved to front-line Christians. We learn to motivate and embolden the body of Christ to put on the whole armor of God and speak boldly as Christ's ambassadors into the marketplace of ideas.

Attack on Christianity asserts that our survival as a Christian nation depends on us waking up and taking on a more public role by speaking life through the Spirit of Truth into our culture's darkness. Consequently, we secure our descendants the same invaluable gift our forefathers gave us through God's providence—the full freedom to live in Christ's liberty and practice our Christian faith.

Attack on Christianity motivates Christians toward involvement while answering the oft-asked question “What can we do?”
