Impossible People: Christian Courage and the Struggle for the Soul of Civilization

Date recorded: 16 Sep 2020 | Speaker: Os Guinness | Event: ELF Academic Leaders Network
Topic: Theology


More than ever Christians must resist the negative cultural forces of our day with fortitude and winsomeness. What is needed is followers of Christ who are willing to face reality without flinching and respond with a faithfulness that is unwavering. We must be "impossible people" serving an impossible God. We must have hearts that can melt with compassion but with faces like flint and backbones of steel who are unmanipulable, undeterrable, and unclubbable, without ever losing the gentleness, the mercy, the grace, and the compassion of our Lord. We must engage secularism and atheism in new ways, confronting competing ideas with discernment and fresh articulation of the faith.
