“It is always better to know the truth.”As I plodded through David Murray’s important book,The Strange Death of Europe, I had to remind myself of that.  The truths he documents are painful.As a young Christian, I felt privileged to visit Europe, having been inspired by the book Here I Stand (Roland Bainton), the story of Martin Luther.  Luther had courageously proclaimed the forgotten truth that in Christ we are justified by faith apart from the works of the law, a simple but revolutionary truth that changed the worldview of Europe.Though the cost of that changed worldview included bloody wars, Protestant Europe gave rise to modern science, the end of slavery, the spread of the Christian gospel to the world, and the American revolution, with a government established by “We the people.” The historical benefits of Christian Europe are beyond measurement, so it is especially tragic to see it collapse and die from suicide.

The Golden Secret: Mom's Classic Children's Story

Children gulped their milk and got stomach aches.
