Ken Hutcherson — affectionately known as "Hutch" — is senior pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Wash. He's a former middle linebacker for three NFL teams: the Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys and San Diego Chargers.

In an email, I recently asked Dr. Hutcherson — who, incidentally, is a friend of Rush Limbaugh and Peter LaBarbera — this question: How can we Christians make America better?

He graciously responded:

    'In Genesis 11:6 we read that when God came down and saw the Tower of Babel that the sons of men had built, He said: 'Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; and nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.'

    'What? These were unbelievers and God said because they had one language and one purpose, nothing would be impossible for them. Can you imagine what we Christians could accomplish as one people, with one language and one purpose with God?

    'It is time for Christians to stop being concerned with who gets the credit and start speaking with one voice in upholding God's standards in the world.'
