We must recognize that we're losing the war in politics because we are losing the culture war. Although I believe it's a two-flank battle--keeping an eye on government (the unique responsibility of a free people) and fighting threats to the culture, I believe that the latter is the primary flank. Yet it's the aspect of the battle that gets the least attention because it's much easier to deal with political issues than it is to tackle moral and spiritual ones.
In short, if we don't do something to change the spiritual state of this nation, our troubles will only get worse. The solution to our governmental problems is an indirect one. One that emphasizes a change in the hearts of Americans, one by one, who in turn will impact this nation for the better.
