Why Christians Must Not Retreat in the Culture War but Wage a God-Centred Counter-Revolution

We live in a time dominated by lies. The media and culture peddle so many things that deny the truth. We are told that some men are really women and some women are really men. Unborn babies are not human. The family is whatever we want it to be. Fake news is everywhere. Lies have …
