The Problem in America Today

We sometimes ask our students “What’s the greatest problem in America today?  Is it ignorance or is it apathy?  One time a student answered, “I don’t know and I don’t care!”

That sums up the problem in America today.  Many of is are ignorant and apathetic about the truth – but not when it comes to money, medicine, or other tangible items we mentioned earlier.  We care passionately about those things.  But many people are ignorant and apathetic about truth in morality and religion (we know you’re not, because you’re taking the time to read this book).  Are people who have adopted the “whatever” theme of the culture right, or does truth in morality and religion really matter?
