One Nation Under God? An Essay By John P. Gordon.

I believe religious beliefs should transcend political associations, there is not one political party that could or should claim to be the party of God. There are enough wrongs to go around to pin on both parties. (We are all sinners...) That said, I am posting an essay that analyzes statistics from a recent Pew Report that breaks down religious beliefs by party affiliation. This is not meant to be a partisan attack on one party or the other nor is it the main focus of the essay. I think it is a thoughtful essay on the degradation of religious belief and the role of religion in today's public square that every person of faith should be aware of.

Podcast from the Center for Parent and Youth Understanding with Dr. David Ayers on the Sexual Practices of Evangelical Youth

I was a young teen and adult during the tumultuous 60's and 70's, this was the beginning of the sexual revolution whose mantra was, Drugs, Sex and Rock'N Roll. Women's liberation, birth control pills and abortion all stoked the fires of promiscuity and the "Love the One You're With" ideology. We are now reaping what we have sown generations later in the sexual revolution part II. Through social media young people have 24/7 access to pornography that is shaping the expectations in our young men and women on sex. We are not just talking about unbelievers, but believers as well. In this podcast Dr. David Ayers discusses trends and statistics that should be a wake up call to parents, grandparents, youth pastors and the Church. Please take the time to listen to this podcast and I hope it would be a basis for frank discussions in the Body of Christ at Beverly Heights.
