One thing that separates the Bible from the Koran is the prevalence of stories that inspire us about life and truth. While the Koran contains the “recitations” of one man over a few weeks, the Bible was written by forty authors over two thousand years. That’s an amazing difference.
Because of its depth and breadth, God’s Word contains many stories, both historical and allegorical, that are memorable and life-changing–such as the parables of Jesus. One of my favorites is the Prodigal Son. It instructs us on the dangers we face in the Western World–and how to find the way home.
But what will it take to awaken the Prodigal West?
During Memorial Day Week, I often share the heroic story of my Uncle Dick who was shot down in a bombing raid during World War II. To me, he will always be “The Bravest Boehme” and his story is worth remembering.
My uncle fought for an entire culture–what history calls Western Civilization. That war still rages today.
Here’s an important update on the war for Western Civilization.
Not long ago a friend on the east coast went through a major moral failure. After much prayer and sharing, I sent an email to him sharing my best advice on righting his personal life.
Because he was not a believer, I decided to appeal through a popular concept that contained sound biblical principles. That teaching is called “Confronting the Brutal Facts.”
We need that same truth today to face what might be the most consequential development of our lives.
History may one day call it “The Great Turning Away.”
