2012 brought up issues both interesting and significant, especially for American Christians. "Linsanity," the loss of another leader in Chuck Colson, the emergence of a Mormon candidate, and threats to religious liberty like we have not seen in our lifetime. I asked Mindy Belz of World magazine and Ed Stetzer of Lifeway Research to join me on BreakPoint this Week to talk about as many as we could fit in.
As Mindy points out, however, there are important issues that didn’t make most lists but should – especially the ongoing persecution of long established Christian communities in the Middle East, especially in Syria. Ed brought up another blind spot. In the continuing promotion of social justice causes especially by younger evangelicals, the defense of the unborn rarely makes the list.
The show with Mindy and Ed airs this weekend on BreakPoint this Week. I hope you’ll listen on radio or at breakpoint.org. I’m John Stonestreet.
