Why Build a Website?
After many members of the UnShackled for Life LIFE Group expressed concern about attacks on Christians and the Church, as well as the general downward trajectory in today's culture, we decided that we needed to do something. And this day and age being what it is, we decided that 'something' was to build a website.
This website is intended to serve several purposes:
as a source of information and actions for Christians concerned about attacks on Christianity and the general breakdown in society.
as a source of inspiration and encouragement for Christians who feel they should become more involved, whether it be in their local church, in their community, in parachurch organizations, in politics, or anywhere. Being silent in our faith should no longer be an option.
As an invitation to non-believers to join the family of Christ.
What should we as 'activist' Christians do? Speak God's truth boldly. We must become actively involved in the public square and this includes being active politically. The political cudgel is being used against Christians and Christian beliefs and we cannot respond without becoming political activists ourselves. But more than anything else, we must commit ourselves to personal revival and to pray for and push for revival in America.
Of course, there is much more to this website than just a bit of stuff pertaining to our major objectives. Check out our site directory for an overview of all the pages on this site. Some pages don't easily categorize themselves into the main menu, so the directory gives you an overview of everything on a single page as well as a link to every page on the site.
Thomas Cole: "The Voyage of Life: Youth" (1842)
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Philippeans 4:8-9 (NIV)
