The more we try to push the Bible out of the public square, the more we forget as a people the impact the Bible has had on society. In particular, on just about every facet of Western culture that we now take for granted. As Summit Ministries just chronicled in its newsletter "The Journal," it was the Biblical idea of universal human value from which notion came for the abolitionist movements of the last several hundred years, as well the less-known abolitionist movement during the Middle Ages.

The Biblical idea of personal responsibility motivated entrepreneurs to create better products and processes that help masses of people. This created free markets and generated wealth, which in our own time has been responsible for lifting more people out of poverty than ever.

We need to be able to remind society why the Bible is so important, and Summit sums it up in March issue of "The Journal" in detail.

Come to, and I’ll link you to Summit’s great resource.
