Why We Shouldn’t Call America a “Post-Christian Nation”

The United States Has Been Marked by Spiritual Ebbs and Flows 

By Dr. Chuck Hetzler

America, along with Canada and many western European nations, are often referred to as “post-Christian.” I’ve caught myself using the term as well, but it’s actually a misleading and harmful catchphrase. Referring to America as a “post-Christian nation” reinforces a false narrative about our country’s Christian history and fosters an ungodly perspective that must be renounced.

Harvard CU Gloria Lecture: ‘The Beginning and End of Sex’

Nick Nowalk Focuses on Bible Narrative, Romance, and Marriage

By Anne Kerhoulas, Staff Writer

Have you ever noticed that the Bible begins and ends with a wedding? The creation story of Genesis 1-2 culminates in the marriage covenant between Adam and Eve when God declares that it is not good for man to be alone and how a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife as one flesh. The story of God begins with a wedding, but it also ends in the same fashion as Jesus, the bridegroom, is finally united to his Bride, the Church, in Revelation 21-22.
