Writer and conservative political commentator David Limbaugh sat down with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles Tuesday to discuss his new book about Jesus Christ, and how it applies to the church and culture today.
Limbaugh’s newest book that he co-authored with his daughter Christen Limbaugh Bloom, “The Resurrected Jesus,” is the final title in Limbaugh’s bestselling “Jesus” series. In his latest edition, Limbaugh seeks to show the “irrefutable proof” of Christ’s resurrection. The brother of the late conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh told Knowles that his book is relevant because the culture has been destroyed by leftism and needs to be called back to the eternal truths of Scripture.
“We are seeing the glorification of evil. We’re seeing the celebration of abortion, the murder of babies, not just the reluctant abortion, safe, legal or not, we’re seeing the glorification of it and the demonization of anyone who opposes it, anyone who champions life we have lost our compass, our moral compass, and the Bible sends us back to it. So to that extent, it’s relevant today,” Limbaugh said.
Knowles and Limbaugh discussed how many modern churches have exchanged the meaningful truths of Christ’s gospel for a more “woke” form of Christianity influenced by the political Left.
“It’s shameful. It’s disgraceful. The Americans have become so liberal and just diluted the gospel to the point of it’s unrecognizable, you know, it’s woke and all that stuff,” Limbaugh commented.
Knowles then explained that Limbaugh’s book focuses on the spread of the early church and that it’s easy to be disheartened comparing the success of the church after Christ’s resurrection to what appears to be a church failing in many areas today. The Daily Wire host mentioned a recent Pew Research study that suggested the Christian population in America could drop below 50% by 2070.
As of 2020, the Pew Center estimated that about 64% of Americans are affiliated as Christian. People identifying as “nones” or religiously unaffiliated included 30% of the population, with other religious groups, such as Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists representing the other 6%.
The Christian writer said that Christianity has been diluted with other belief systems in America, leading to the decreasing Christian influence on society, and in turn, a more liberal culture.
“I think you have syncretism, the combination of pagan beliefs with Christian beliefs and mixing it together,” Limbaugh said.
