I have been reading a book, “Distortion” by Chelsen Vicari. It is a convicting book that looks at the changing outlook on life in the United States. Specifically by the church. Chelsen points out that there are those who claim to follow Christ but emphasize the social gospel at the expense of a personal relationship with Jesus. The social gospel tries to help people which is part of applying the Loving your neighbor method. Which is good, but some have shifted the emphasis from helping others to promoting their personal opinion about prolife, homosexuality, social justice, feminism, Christian persecution and the nation of Israel. It was a very insightful read and I would recommend it. It will show you how the world is trying it’s best to under mind the true gospel of the Lord. How we must involve ourselves in the battle. The future of the gospel in America may depend on our willingness to join this struggle. It is a deep read. I found it to be inspiring and motivating.
