In 2009, the late Chuck Colson led the charge among Orthodox, Catholic, and Evangelical Christian leaders to draw up a declaration that addressed three key issues crucial to the health and well-being of the culture: life, marriage, and religious freedom. Within months, over a half a million people signed the Manhattan Declaration.
Ten years later, we at Focus on the Family remain firm in our support of the tenets detailed in the Manhattan Declaration. In fact, to reaffirm them, we’ve invited John Stonestreet, the president of the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, to our studios for a timely conversation about how Christians can keep their bearings in a culture that’s ever-changing.
On our Focus on the Family Broadcast, we’re shining a spotlight on these foundational truths:
The Christian faith is about modeling the very essence of God on this earth. The question is, how do we express that in authentic ways with the Fruit of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, self-control, and mercy – in what is increasingly an alley fight?
John Stonestreet says, “Ideas have consequences. Bad ideas have victims.” Christians can impact and change the culture only if they’re clear on their convictions. The way we help the next generation is to give substantive answers to the questions, “Who am I?” “Why did God create me?” “What is God’s purpose for my life?”
John Stonestreet is the president of the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview. John has co-written a great book called A Practical Guide to Culture: Helping the Next Generation Navigate Today’s World that helps moms and dads equip their children to engage the culture and to share the love of Christ in these challenging times.
