Baptist Leader Speaks at BYU: "We Share a Common Urgency"

Key points from his talk:

The Modern Age has alienated an entire civilization from its Christian roots.

Recent research shows that 1 in 5 Americans is thoroughly secularized, with no religious affiliation at all. Worse yet, 1 in 3 younger Americans under age 30 is so identified.

Secularization has come about in 2 primary social locations: western Europe and the American college and university campus.

The weakening of marriage is a first sign of civilization collapse.

Children are routinely sacrificed to the romantic whims and sexual demands of their parents, who may or may not be married, may or may not stay married, and may or may not include both a father and a mother at any point.

The talk is insightful and worth reading:
