Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Is Evangelicalism Fighting for Its Life?

In recent headlines the debate has been rekindled about whether or not Evangelicalism is a dying faith. Rick Warren commented on CBS News that the moral majority and the religious right might die off but the church will never die. The demise of Christianity has been predicted since the rebirth of the Old Testament church on the day of Pentecost but God has sovereignly protected the church and has always kept a remnant of true believers.

Unfortunately, folks like Rick Warren are part of the problem. The dumbing down of the Gospel and the Protestant Reformation has led to all sorts of heterodoxy and heresy within the Protestant mainline churches and that principle is now being reduplicated in Evangelicalism because of the spread of Christless Christianity through the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement and its illegitimate child, the church growth movement.

This video clip reveals the symptoms of such compromises and points us back to the Bible and to the Gospel.

May God grant us the grace to believe!
