I grew up in a fundamentalist church culture that demanded outward performance, to the detriment of genuine faith. Because my brain didn't work like other Christians I knew, I learned to blend in and keep my mouth shut.
In addition, the church has been dealing with issues of political correctness and which things or lifestyles are really sin. All of these are important issues in Christianity. However, our understanding and personal preferences about them can cause debates and quarreling which only leads to further division.
May a new generation rise up to the same boldness and integrity that Dr. Graham had and may the message he preached for more than sixty years, the message of salvation found only in Jesus Christ, continue to impact lives for eternity.
The man with the beautiful voice, Pastor Eric Kelly of The Family Church, continues the series of Honoring God with our Bodies.
