If Pastors Don’t Stand and Preach the Truth, America Will FallShane Idleman – Christian Post – July 15, 2015

A paraphrase that is often attributed to Alexis De Tocqueville—a Frenchman who authored Democracy in America in the early 1800s, helps to open this letter: “I looked throughout America to find where her greatness originated. I looked for it in her harbors and on her shorelines, in her fertile fields and boundless prairies, and in her gold mines and vast world commerce, but it was not there.”

“It was not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her success. America is great because she is good, and if America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

Over the last few decades, Americans have seen the destruction of the institution of marriage between a man and a woman, the removal of God’s Word in several areas, and the blatant murdering of millions of babies. This is an indictment against America and the pulpit is partially responsible – our silence speaks volumes.

The pulpit regulates the spiritual condition of God’s people which affects the nation. A lukewarm, sex-saturated culture (and church) simply reflects the lack of conviction in the pulpit as well as the pew.

Sadly, many pastors are exchanging truth for passivity, boldness for cowardliness, and conviction for comfort…they are not aflame with righteousness. We aim to be motivational speakers rather than preachers of righteousness.

Pastors (and Christian leaders alike) must take responsibility for the spiritual health of today’s church, and the nation. We don’t need more marketing plans, demographic studies, or giving campaigns; we need men filled with the Spirit of God.

    Dear Jason, Ps Daniel and Rise Up Australia Team,

    Thank you for your emails, your courage to stand up against evil.
    We are fighting against the same enemy – bless you.
    We should try to contact some church leaders in America and encourage them.
    Do you have any email addresses of church congregations in America to contact and encourage?

    I am dismayed that there have been marches and protests continually happening in our cities yet there has been no Christian party, church or groups standing up for the rights of traditional marriage. The Adelaide CC is considering “rainbowing” a footpath to show their support for so called “equal rights”, and other councils are flying the flag. Yet where are the Christian voices expressing the truth. Why haven’t there been any peaceful marches expressing the truth of marriage. I would like to know what your party is doing?

    Regards,

    Katherine

    Then in the 1980’s Pastor Jerry Falwell took a stand against the homosexual agenda and many leading pastors and churches also ostracized him across the country as being a little too political and getting off focus of preaching the gospel.
