Sermon Illustrations

Recently I picked up Kimball’s new book called, “They Like Jesus But Not The Church.” He makes this observation about our young America today: “Our world has changed whether we like it or not!” “We are living in an increasingly ‘post-Christian’ culture. America once was more of a ‘Christian nation’ whose influences and values were aligned with Judeo-Christian values and ethics. Even most atheists had a good sense of the story line of the Bible and its main characters, and usually respected the Bible and Christians pastors. Movies and media generally taught values and ethics that aligned for the most part with the Bible. However, the world around has drastically changed over the past thirty years or so” (page 15).
