CHRISTIAN JOURNALIST AND COMMENTATOR MARK BRETON DISCUSSES THE MENTAL STATE OF THE EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY AND ITS MEMBERS TODAY, ON THE 10 – 14 AUGUST 09 “FUTURE QUAKE” RADIO PROGRAMS
Nashville, TN – Mark Breton (www.rdawsi.org, markbreton.com), author, freelance writer for the Nashville (TN) Scene Magazine, and founder of The Relational Discipleship & Worldview Studies Institute, discusses the corporate mental, emotional and spiritual state of the evangelical community in the West today, as well as that of its typical individuals, families and churches, with host “Doctor Future” and co-host Tom Bionic, airing daily during the week of 10 August on the “Future Quake” program, broadcast on the Christian talk radio station WENO, 760 AM in Nashville, TN (and archived at http://www.futurequake.com). Mr. Breton has received a Masters of Arts Degree in Religion, with a major in Pastoral Counseling, from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, and is current pursuing a Doctorate of Ministry at the Trinity Graduate School of Apologetics and Theology. He serves as a freelance writer for the Nashville Scene Magazine, writing on current events with commentary from a Christian perspective for a very philosophically diverse audience. He is the founder of a new organization known as “The Relational Discipleship & Worldview Studies Institute”, which is stated to be “founded on the principles of the absolute authority of God's Word, the life of Christ in the believer, and the outpowering of the Holy Spirit into the church; growing us together in maturity and wisdom.” Their stated mission is to be “a resource to the church to assist in the maturity and growth of believers in the local fellowships and communities”, and focus on “relationships, discipleship and worldview, and how these three areas of life integrate to form the whole man through the grace of God in Christ Jesus”. In this thought-provoking interview, Mr. Breton discusses how the typical evangelical individuals today are self-centered, and focused on what religion can do to help themselves and their problems and fortunes; he counters that they would be better served by focusing on gratitude for what God has done for their lives, and devote themselves to Christian service as an expression of love for the Lord. He also acknowledges that many modern adherents find embracing the fundamental teachings of the Bible, and the moral guidelines it demands, to be distasteful and constrictive, and thereby resist such commitments. These traits are contrasted to Christians of the past, who worshiped out of devotion and gratitude, and generally devoted considerable time to community Christian service and ministry. This recent influence is shown to impact family relationships (with such self-centeredness drawing family members into their own separate paths), church families, and the Body of Christ in Society. This and other provocative findings are discussed in this thoughtful discourse.
