<![CDATA[ver the years I've watched many people who have called themselves Christians. I'm not judging them, but I'VE observed their lives. Sometimes a person's words and his walk line up perfectly and that is what is known as integrity. Other times, I've heard people say one thing, but then watched them do another thing. But the Bible is clear on this point, that if we are going to talk the talk, then we need to walk the walk. Unfortunately, over the years Christianity has slipped into the mode of easy believism. The way Christianity is taught in some circles, it is as though people are going to just trip over their shoestrings and fall into heaven. In fact, if we stand up for the authority of Scripture for all men, in all times, and in all cultures, then we are viewed as radicals, as fundamentalists who are as dangerous to the American way of life as Islamic terrorists. So Christianity has tried to become politically correct and more moderate as we have coated the truth with sugar and watered down the new wine so that we don't make anyone uncomfortable.]]>
