Careful observers of American culture over the past few decades can’t help but notice the loss of a moral center. Instead of wringing our hands, though, we must recognize that this is a great occasion for the Gospel’s advance. Providing hope from 1 Peter, Alistair Begg asserts that if the church will bow to Christ’s lordship, it will be a light shining out in the darkness. The reign of Christ and His people will outlast every human regime.
15but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.
