One of the major problems the church faces today is that the Christian faith has been reduced from its public engagement of civilization to a private relationship with God. . . . There is more to Christianity than the personal side of the faith—there is the cosmic side, the claim of Jesus Christ to be Lord of the universe—Creator, Redeemer and Ruler of all. What I am asking of us all is to think through what it means to proclaim “Jesus is Lord.”
