A great wall of ethical and moral restraint once seemed firmly encoded within American culture—a boundary line that, even when subconscious or unspoken, ideally separated good from evil, right from wrong, law from lawlessness. Few would deny that this wall has now largely collapsed, pulling even much of the mainline and even Evangelical church down with it. Can this once taken-for-granted moral framework ever be recovered in Western culture? Or do our unprecedented times require that believers seek instead to rediscover and realize within the church the original patterns of life and source of power capable of ensuring the church’s survival amidst the maelstrom of antinomianism?
Arising from a ministry that birthed an intentional Christian community now flourishing into its fifth decade, this message calls for an entirely new kind of law—one written on the hearts and minds of God’s people—one enabling the church to find the strength to stand in the day of lawlessness.
