Benham Brothers Explain How You Can Be "A Professing Believer But A Functional Atheist"

How can a "predominantly Christian" nation be so full of wickedness? Any poll will tell you that the majority of people call themselves Christian in America, yet our politics, entertainment, and family structures do not mirror that. How come? The Benham Brothers, known for their strong Christian stance (even getting them kicked off their HGTV show), say it's because many are "professing believers" but really "functional atheists."

When asked in an interview how Clinton VP pick Tim Kaine can be "personally" against abortion but politically in support, the brothers answered:

"This is a trap into which many Christians fall today. Unfortunately, we have many professing believers but functional atheists. In other words, they claim to have faith but refuse to make it a framework through which they live faithfully to God ... in every area of life. We cannot divorce our faith from the decisions of life (marriage, finances, raising children, education, civic duty, etc.). In light of that, God's word is clear that His people are to be a voice for the voiceless. So if Tim Kaine ignores this vital aspect of his faith, what other parts will he ignore as he seeks to lead this country?"

The Benham brothers are urging Christians to behave as Daniel did, when living in the Babylonian culture that hated the true God of Israel. They warn that believers in America may soon face, as Daniel did, a time where prayer and faith in God is banned. "When a law passed that targeted [Daniel's] faith, he publicly targeted it back by praying with his windows open, in full defiance to the unjust law. We may find ourselves in a situation to do this very thing soon, so we must be people of conviction and commitment now--then, we'll stand with courage."
