The church of the present and the future must be a wartime church. The days of peace are over, whether you want them to be or not. Prepare.
The points Dreher makes are more the case for the Church in the West but if those of us in other parts of the world think that the battle is not ours to fight, we are rather deluded. We all - the body of Christ - need to prepare for war always remembering of course that He will win every battle.
