This is the ninth episode in Eric Ludy’s winter Daily Thunder series that dives into the unstable season of American history known as the Antebellum period (1815-1861). This particular message addresses the complex and challenging issue of a Christian and the World — a point of intense debate and division for thousands of years in the Church. Is a Christian supposed to avoid the World and shun it completely? Is a Christian supposed to become like the World in order to reach it? Or is there a better way for the Christian to engage this thing called “The World”?
