The crisis of leadership in our country is palpable right now, and Christian parents feel that challenge in big ways and small. We don’t have a pure choice at the ballot box, particularly on the national stage. Many Christians have a crisis of conscious when choosing a presidential leader.


How should we respond?


Catherine continues her conversation with the world-renowned author, philosopher, historian, and theologian Os Guinness. Together, they have a frank discussion about:


*The evangelical roots of abolition.

*The bewitching of Americans from the ideals of our revolution to the ideals of the French Revolutions.

*The “Long March” (infiltration of Marxist ideology) on our institutions.

*Antonio Gramsci: 5 Pillars of western civilization that must fall for a successful Marxist Revolution to succeed identified by Antonio Gramsci (religion, family, education, media, law).

*Classical Marxism (communism) vs. Cultural Marxism.

*The link between faith and fertility/secularism and futility.

*The perilous state of our union.

*The crisis of leadership on the national stage.

*The dilemma Christians face at the ballot box (co-belligerence vs. alliance).

*The prayer we should pray for the leader we need.


Much of their conversation centers on the desperate need for Godly leadership at all levels of our government, but especially on the national stage.


“Leaders serve. Great leaders of free republics are teachers of freedom, like Moses,” says Os. We need that kind of leader. Os admonishes Christians to hold our leadership accountable while recognizing the difference between co-belligerence (uniting for a common cause) and alliance. Os also shares the prayer that he and his wife pray over our nation every day:


“Lord… Set over us a leader such that it would be to Your glory to give the victory through him or her.” Amen.
