Western culture is degenerate. Conservative Christians have exerted considerable energy fighting cultural decline, but their efforts amount to minor skirmishes compared to the war that needs to happen with the church and her teaching of divorce and remarriage.
The blame for our cultural depravity has generally been directed toward liberalism, feminism, and the homosexual agenda. Contra Mundum Swagger debunks that view. Christians shouldn't be directing their efforts in fighting these battles at first. It's a strategic mistake. Rather Christians ought to destroy the idols in the church that have perpetuated them.
Jack Shannon admonishes church leadership who, by allowing divorce and remarriage to happen, have caused God's people to sin and lose their cultural dominance. At the same time, these figures have harshly judged the outside unbelieving world, but judgment begins in the house of the Lord.While the criticisms in this book are often difficult, they're imparted with love. Ultimately, Contra Mundum Swagger doesn't seek to point blame; it strives to help reform. Only by accepting how the church has erred can we take the necessary steps to call her to genuine repentance and rebuild a Christian society that lives by God's Word.
