I grew up with the notion that you never talk about politics or religion with other people because beliefs are different, you cannot change their beliefs, and you always end up in a never-ending argument (at least that’s what happened the few times someone bought up religion with me). Dr. Jeremiah wrote quite the opposite. He wrote about politics AND religion together! He says in this book that “people don’t always appreciate having the gospel preached to them, but that’s our work, and it is the greatest evidence of our love.” “Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World” is a follow-up book to “What in the World is Going On?” I have to admit that I did not read the first book and do not know if reading the first book would influence my opinion on this book.
This book focuses on Christianity and refers to the New Testament. Dr. Jeremiah believes that based on the New Testament there are ten practical strategies to help us live with confidence in this chaotic world of politics and religion.
Ten instructions for living life while we are looking for the Savior:
1.) Stay Calm
2.) Stay Compassionate
3.) Stay Constructive
4.) Stay Challenged
5.) Stay Connected
6.) Stay Centered
7.) Stay Confident
8.) Stay Consistent
9.) Stay Committed
10.) Stay Convinced
These chapters which explain the instructions are about what on Earth we should be doing in a time like this based on passages about the return of Christ.
