I am confronted daily with convictions that seem to run counter to a great deal of what many in the church hold to, especially prominent figures who so many look to for guidance.
” Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength” (Jer 17:5).
This is especially true today after reading about the statement Anne Graham Lotz posted on her Facebook page regarding the women’s march on January 21, 2017. She described it as “as destructive movement leading women to their moral graves”.

I believe such a statement , which casts dispersions on everyone so broadly, lacks empathy and doesn’t reflect the heart of Christ, who “When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd” (Matt 9:36).
I don’t doubt that their were those in the massive crowd who have a wrong sense of Christian morality; or morality in general but to put everyone in the same category is no better than Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment.
Are we lacking the heart of Christ in our approach to the social challenges of today?
How can we (the church) reach the lost if we fail to, or refuse to acknowledge their true needs and hurts?
