What caused the collapse of civilized society in Germany in the 1930s was the abandonment of ethics and the failure of the Church-except for a brave few-to stand for truth. Dr. Timothy George makes the case brilliantly in a half-hour talk comparing the Manhattan Declaration and the Barmen Declaration crafted by the confessing Church after the Nazis had taken power. You'll be struck by the incredible parallels between the documents, which simply underscore the urgency of the moment for Christians to rally behind the orthodox faith and defend the most foundational truths. I urge you to watch Dr. George's presentation from the VALS Conference in March at Colorado Christian University at at http://www.ccu.edu/vals/video/.
In today's morally troubled times, just as in the 1930s, the Church must rise up and stand for Truth and virtue. This is why the Manhattan Declaration was drafted and why now nearly 500,000 people have signed it. But supporting the Manhattan Declaration doesn't stop with just your signature.
We need you to:
1) Share the Manhattan Declaration with your friends and urge them to sign it;
2) Use the Manhattan Declaration to engage in public dialog in a winsome way;
3) Get your local church to teach on the Manhattan Declaration.
