Knowledge and truth have fallen on hard times in contemporary American culture. We are distracted from thinking deeply about anything because we are too busy focusing on ourselves and our own entertainment. Sadly, this problem is not merely "out there" in the world. Overnight, contemporary churches have become entertainment centers and purveyors of self-centered spirituality. Encouraged by smiling television preachers to have our best life now, modern Christians have almost lost sight of Jesus and his saving work. We desperately need to follow the advice of the apostle Peter, who encouraged believers to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Pet 3:18). R. C. Sproul joins the panel for this special edition of White Horse Inn recorded before a live audience in Orlando, Florida.

  • I agree. I've spent over 10 years looking for a church and for Christian media that will help our family through the difficult times and challenges we've had. For example, my husband suffered cancer for nearly ten years and died at the beginning of 2011, but the Christian media tend to say things like one notable speaker, whom I quote nearly verbatim "when I say we all have to carry a cross, I'm not talking about poverty, cancer, or other things like that." This famous speaker, like many others, felt that if we were "really close" to God He would be able to "trust us with health and prosperity." That sort of thinking makes those who suffer from cancer feel as though they have failed God. If also makes me feel that they never read the Books of Job, Isaiah, any of the Gospels, or the rest of the Scriptures. My son and I do manage to go to church, and I compose and perform Christian Music- we just don't "fit in."
