Many people are in distress as they see America as a nation in decline.  However, if you could go back to the early 20th century, Germany didn’t look like a nation that was on the brink of world-shaking terror.  It looked like many of us have known the U.S. to be.

The guest on this edition of Crosstalk wrote a book in 2010 and it’s as relevant today, perhaps even more so, than it was then.  It warns us of a nation and its future that none of us wants to see.  So what can we do in times like these?  

Joining Jim to answer that question was Dr. Erwin Lutzer.  Dr. Lutzer is Pastor Emeritus of The Moody Church where he served as the senior pastor for 36 years. He is the speaker on three radio programs that are heard on more than 750 outlets. He’s an award-winning author with multiple titles including, The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent, Life Changing Bible Verses You Should Know, We Will Not Be SilencedNo Reason to Hide and the one discussed on this program, When a Nation Forgets God.

Is America currently experiencing a political problem or a spiritual one?  Dr. Lutzer believes it’s both.  He contends that there are problems that Washington cannot solve, yet in spite of that, he still believes that politics is very important.  After all, as he noted, “Would you rather live in North Korea or South Korea?”  On the other hand, for those of us as Christians, politics, as important as it is, is not supremely important.  What’s supremely important is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  

Dr. Lutzer brought up numerous critical points.  The first concerned laws.  He noted that if you don’t have transcendent values when you make your laws, you have Hitler’s laws.

Another critical point concerned propaganda.  He indicated that it’s very powerful and it’s used on both sides of the aisle.  The result is that there are cultural streams that few people are willing to stand against.  It happened in Nazi Germany where the individual meant nothing and the state meant everything.

Hitler went so far as to reinterpret Christmas and Easter.  Sound familiar?  So just as Hitler wanted to diminish the impact of Christianity, we’ve been seeing that play out in contemporary America.

Finally, when chaos breaks out, people want order.  In Nazi Germany that meant the abolition of personal rights and the people were willing to accept it because they felt they’d rather live and have their rights taken away than keep those rights and die.       

Are we repeating the story of Nazi Germany?  You decide when you hear what else Dr. Lutzer had to say on this critical edition of Crosstalk.
