Pastors, not to speak is to speak

Image may contain: 1 person, text 

Pastors and teachers, will your sermons and teachings this week engage the actual world? Or will our passivity give folly and death more ground?

Legalized infanticide in New York. Hate Hoaxes framing innocent bystanders (the Covington kids etc.). Borders open to drugs and crime, with thousands of victims.

I urge every Christian minister to step up to the plate this Sunday. Conviction and courage, friends. In time of war, silence isn't golden. It's yellow.

Be a Bonhoeffer. A Paul. Be like Jesus. Speak, stand, act - because of love. It's time to restore the garden in which we're placed to steward, and to grow.

Sorry, Kelly—we’ve never heard a sermon on abortion, on marriage, on war, on drugs, on friendships and relationships destroyed by political animosity—and we never will.
