I've been stimulated by the disparity between 'what God says' and what is being 'modeled or taught' by younger ministers and believers today. I know God raises up a new generation of leaders every decade or two. He intends them to be a powerful, encouraging force in the lives of their constituents. Yet, God also expects them to stay consistent with the principles and concepts recorded in His Written Word.

This is a book of discovery! It presents a personal discovery about our current American culture, and it exposes 'culture's discovery' that it really is capable of persuading the Church to hold and keep societal values instead of maintaining godly values. It is also intended to help you the reader discover or rediscover what God's defined values and perspectives are-and how to observe them within your own life.

Many of today's young people struggle against the idea there is a defined set of moral standards to live by. It seems true that some of the younger Millennials entering the ministry hold some form of moral standard, but struggle to find that specific bar or standard as outlined in scripture. I am confident they will eventually find and accept the fact that the Holy Scriptures do set a bar or standard they are to live out. But until then, someone needs speak boldly about what that standard is.

Until they accept God's standard, the flux of today's pressures and societal expectations and political correctness binds them to societal standards that are not necessarily God's defined standard. This then is the reason for this book-to provoke each reader to consider God's Word-until they see what the Bible says is God's standard-and accept it-and then live it out within their own lives.
