Over three years ago, I began to grieve about the spiritual decline that was taking place in our nation. As I sought the Lord, He revealed to me our nation was suffering from immorality because pastors and Christians were no longer involved in the civil arena.
Since that time the Lord has compelled and equipped me to stand, proclaim and educate others in truth. In the past, America had been led by outspoken pastors and Christians who boldly and freely exercised their faith in every aspect of their lives, both private and public. This had a profound influence on the culture and to further the gospel. Today, we remain the sleeping “silent majority” to the point of now becoming exiles in our own country.
You may ask, what compels me? Watch this video below. Every Christian and pastor in America should watch this. Dr. Jim Garlow, senior pastor of Skyline Church articulately defines and clearly describes the problem in our culture. As shepherds of the flock with a higher accountability to God, pastors must lead in boldly standing for truth in the public square. However, all of us are called to boldly take a stand to be the light of truth not only in our private lives and circles of influence but also in every aspect of the public arena as well!
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you…” (Isaiah 60:1-4).
