Russell Moore was a recent guest on Bill Bennett’s radio program, Morning in America, discussing the status of Christianity, culture, and American political life. Dr. Moore published an essay in the Wall Street Journal last month which began this way:
‘The Bible Belt is collapsing,” says Russell Moore. Oddly, the incoming president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission doesn’t seem upset. In a recent visit to The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Moore explains that he thinks the Bible Belt’s decline may be “bad for America, but it’s good for the church.”
Why? Because “we are no longer the moral majority. We are a prophetic minority.”
Here’s the audio of their interaction.
