Is There Any Hope for the Future? — Lucas Miles
Our current cultural moment is full of chaos and deception. Denying reality causes havoc in people’s lives. However, no political movement or militant group can ever put Jesus Christ back in the grave. Our hope in Jesus Christ is not a feeling, nor is it wishful thinking. Our hope is grounded in the reality of seeing things clearly through the perspective of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.Our current cultural moment is full of chaos and deception.
