Philippians 1:9-10 And this I pray, that your love may overflow still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that you may discover the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and blameless for the day of Christ.
Christianity is first a religion of the heart. It is also, however a religion that asks us to engage our minds and our intellect in order to understand the full scope of the grace God has extended to a lost and wayward people. It is not enough to absorb the abbreviated history and skepticism peddled throughout our years of being subjected to a secular education and the view of Christianity as just another offering in the vast smorgasbord of “spiritual practices”. If we are to understand the magnitude of our belief then we need to understand how it is, and continues to be, contextualized in the lives of individual believers and in the larger culture as well.
Being a Christian in the United States is fairly easy except for some parts of Michigan and other places where Islam holds sway. It is a far different situation in Nigeria or India or China. John 16:33 has a far different degree of poignancy in those types of places than it does here. How we “feel”, think and respond to that difference is a question that each of us must ask ourselves.
