What is the future of church? Matthew 16:18 tells us even the gates of hell will not prevail against it. However, what the church will be depends a great deal on our endurance, on judgment, mercy and faith, and how we bring up our children in the face of the spirit of the times. Are we prepared to meet the challenges before us? The challenges are many, and the faithful are few.
