The culture has been destroyed by leftism and needs to be called back to the eternal truths of scripture, Missouri author David Limbaugh says. Limbaugh and his daughter, Christen Limbaugh Bloom, wrote the new book “The Resurrected Jesus,” the final title in Limbaugh’s bestselling “Jesus” series.
“We are seeing the glorification of evil,” he said. “We’re seeing the celebration of abortion, the murder of babies, not just the reluctant abortion, safe, legal or not, we’re seeing the glorification of it and the demonization of anyone who opposes it, anyone who champions life. We have lost our compass, our moral compass, and the Bible sends us back to it. So to that extent, it’s relevant today.”
Limbaugh discussed how many modern churches have exchanged the meaningful truths of Christ’s gospel for a more woke form of Christianity influenced by the political left. “It’s shameful,” he said. “It’s disgraceful. Americans have become so liberal and just diluted the gospel to the point that it’s unrecognizable.”
Limbaugh’s book focuses on the spread of the early church and that it’s easy to be disheartened comparing the success of the church after Christ’s resurrection to what appears to be a church failing in many areas today. A recent Pew Research study suggested that the Christian population in America could drop below 50 percent by 2070.
As of 2020, the Pew Center estimated that about 64 percent of Americans were affiliated as Christian. People identifying as “nones” or religiously unaffiliated included 30 percent of the population, with other religious groups, such as Jews, Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists representing the other 6 percent.
Christianity has been diluted with other belief systems in the United States, Limbaugh said, leading to the decreasing Christian influence on society, and in turn, a more liberal culture. “I think you have syncretism, the combination of pagan beliefs with Christian beliefs and mixing it together,” he said.
The book is receiving positive reviews from readers. Rachel, reviewing the book on Goodreads.com wrote, “This book inspires me to continue to pursue and speak the truth boldly. The authors do a great job of breaking down the teachings of Paul, who is a faithful follower of Christ. The bold prayers in each chapter were my favorite as they helped me put my faith into practice. As always, every detail was supported and God’s word was passionately revealed. How special and refreshing it was to read a book written by a father and daughter team.”
