Signs of Sincerity in American Christianity

While finishing up the study of Mark over the last few weeks, I started to think about an issue with which many Christians occasionally “struggle.” I put “struggle” in scare quotes because we often look at this particular issue as a 1st-World Problem.

I do not think it is possible to speak of it generally enough to be helpful to people going through it. It requires individual intervention. And of course, I cannot use one of these articles to spell out answers to a particular person.
