Chuck Colson

Even with a believer in the White House, Christians are not released from our obligation to teach worldview and to work for righteousness. As agents of God?s common grace, we are called to help sustain and renew His creation, to uphold the created institutions of family and society.

In the final analysis, winning the culture is more important than winning elections. To paraphrase the Scriptures, what will it profit us if we win the presidency?but lose our children to a corroded culture? The election is over, and now it?s time to get down to our job, to be steady at our posts?discipling our children and transforming culture, the only way cultures are ever changed: from the bottom up.
