Dog the Bounty Hunter
You are listening to the sermon from 08/13/17
Faith Wesleyan Church in Rockford IL.

Scripture texts: Matthew 5:13-16

Synopsis: Human beings are influenced by other human beings. It’s not a matter of whether or not we have influence, but what kind of influence we have. Christians are to be the positive influencers of all time. Sadly, Christians are losing traction in this department. Pew Research reveals that Christian influence over the culture is in decline. When asked, Do yo think Evangelical Christians are having an increasing or decreasing influence on life in your country, the responses were overwhelmingly negative. Even 82% of U.S. Evangelical leaders said Christian influence over culture is decreasing. 53% percent from the U.S. said the state of evangelicalism is worse off than it was 5 years ago, while nearly half expect that downward trend to continue. That Christian influence is on the decline is accurate, but who is getting the blame isn’t. Christians blame secularism. That’s only partly true.
