The dilemma is, “why didn’t we do the training?”
Our Seminaries and Christian Universities have failed us. They are turning out adult males and ladies with educational degrees, who simply cannot defend their faith.
Our church buildings seldom even bring up the matter of abortion, homosexual marriage, evolution, or ethical relativism.
