Wolfgang and Mercy Simson follow up their letter to American believers with a longer letter (PDF download) elaborating on the root causes of the US malaise:
“The real pink elephant in the room, the problem so big that hardly anyone can or wants to see it, is this: most Christians are not in the Kingdom. They may have knocked at the door, but never entered in. Or they may have entered, said a quick prayer, raised a hand, but quickly walked out of the Kingdom again, unable or unwilling to leave the ways of the world behind and submit themselves to the King. It really breaks our heart to say this, but we really mean it: if Jesus does not evidently rule our lives, he is not our King.”
Fortunately, it’s not too late to turn things around.
