Why Doctrine Matters

Mere Christianity was a book written by Clives Staples Lewis and published in 1952 (based on a number of radio recordings by Lewis on the BBC during World War II). It is one of the most influential books of the 20th century, written by one of Western culture’s intellectual giants. In the book, even though it gives a baseline apologetic (or, defense) of the Christian faith, it contains an impressive depth of what we call doctrine.

In the years since its first publication, the Church has undergone a continual seismic shift.

Legacy in Business; Prioritize Prayer; The Zealous Faith of Secularism; How Can I Possibly Believe that Faith is Better than Doubt?; Revivals and the American Church and more, in this issue of Christian Union's bi-monthly email brief.

In celebrating the Reformation most people and commentators have concentrated on the remarkable gifts to the church that it provided.  We forget, however the impact the Reformation had on culture.  In the context of the universal coherence and centrality of faith in all spheres, Os Guinness makes a case that this movement was also the single strongest set of ideas that made the modern world.

Great things happen when you decide to pray!

Prayer is a forum that brings fulfillment to a life in Christ.  Without prayer Christianity is a title alone, but with prayer, Christianity is an ever-growing, intimate relationship with the God who promises to honor those who honor Him (1 Samuel 2:30), reveal Himself to those who search for Him (Jeremiah 29:13), and draw near to those who will draw near to Him (James 4:8).
