Pastor John Koopman appeared on Issues, Etc. last week discussing the dangers of cynicism. Pastor Koopman says that a cynical outlook is a fatalistic one, assuming nothing can be changed for the better. He warned listeners that it is very easy to drift along with the culture, citing how many in the church no longer stand with biblical marriage and sexuality. It was a great reminder for Mad Christians not to be overtaken by despondency but rather to engage this battle with faith and courage. As we anticipate the celebration of our Savior’s death and resurrection, it is a stark reminder that with God, all things are possible. Even the cruel and humiliating death on the cross brought the greatest good to mankind.
