Join Us in Washington D.C. This September
No student of history can deny that the Christian church has decisively shaped Western culture. The medieval primacy of bishops and monasteries, the recovery of the gospel in the Reformation and consequent explosion in literacy, the scientific revolution, and the principled separation of church and state with the attendant freedom to evangelize have all resulted from Christians who have tried their best to apply the teaching of Scripture to all of life.
We are grateful for this legacy, even as we recognize that our culture has largely forgotten this rich history. Today, we are living in a post-Christian and even anti-Christian society where the holiness of God is mocked, Christians are silenced, and the gospel is largely seen as irrelevant, even in many professedly “Christian” churches. Those of us who are disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ often find it difficult to find our bearings in this ever-changing world, let alone shine the light of Christ into the darkest recesses of the culture.
In an effort to help believers learn how to live out the implications of the gospel in this culture, Ligonier Ministries is hosting a conference September 17–18, 2010, in Washington, D.C., featuring Thabiti Anyabwile, Robert Godfrey, Albert Mohler, Burk Parsons, R.C. Sproul Jr. and R.C. Sproul (via live video feed). This conference, “Being a Christian in a Post Christian Culture,” will provide sound teaching as to how Christians can recover a biblical understanding of the world around us and, consequently, how we can reform out lives and our spheres of influence. Focusing on topics such as the Christian’s relationship to the culture, Christ’s promise of success to the church, the eclipse of God, the dangers of statism, and others, this event should be an exciting time to gather with Christians from across the country as we look at how we can be the salt in this flavorless world.
We hope that you will be able to join us this September in the nation’s capital to study the things of the one Sovereign whose kingdom has no end. Please pray with us that it will be a valuable time for Christ’s church.
