Because of the times that we live in, I am often asked what Aglow’s stance is in the midst of what looks like the redefining of society. To know where we stand, you can read our Core Values. Our stance will always align with Biblical values. Those values are fixed and cannot be redefined.
Our God who never changes, who is the same yesterday, today, and forever has forever fixed Himself to be the anchor in our lives. He is immovable and not tossed about by the whims of society.
As I pondered the past year, I thought of a blog I wrote several years ago and with a few edits, I would like to submit it to you again today:
We are living in times when many of the “norms” or “accepted ways of conduct” we have known in the past have changed, some radically so. “Christian morality is being ushered out of American social structures and off the cultural main stage, leaving a vacuum in its place – and the broader culture is attempting to fill the void. Barna reveals growing concern about the moral condition of the nation, even as many American adults admit they are uncertain about how to determine right from wrong. Do Christians see truth and morality in radically different ways from the broader public, or are they equally influenced by the growing tide of secularism and religious skepticism?” (The End of Absolutes: America’s New Moral Code.
