"Navigating the significant emerging spiritual and political shift in America"
The verbiage used in the debates by the candidates running for president has plunged us into new depths of incivility. It is difficult to discover any hope for the future in such muck and mire. Such is the way of politics we are told. Oh, that really explains it. While others and I preach hope for our nation, we believe that hope is found only in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pluralists won't be rejoicing over this statement, but I have a right --- at this point --- to make such a statement.
After all, there are those who are preaching that hope for America is found in socialism. Others declare that the hope for our nation is Islam. Our current president's electioneering slogan in 2008 was: "hope and change." There are many "gospels" of hope. Simply defined, gospel means "good news." But, I cannot find good news in any gospel but His Gospel recorded in Scripture.
Jesus is The Way, not a way to God (John 14:6). Look out, now I have declared exclusivism! I sound like a simple country preacher from the hills of West Virginia. Guess what? I am. I admit it. In the middle of this current mess and malaise, I do believe hope can be restored. I do believe the Church can be reformed. And, I do believe our nation can be reclaimed.
I admit I don't have all the strategies yet to accomplish these beliefs, but I strongly believe they are available to those who seek them out. Better yet, to those who seek first the Lord God and His Kingdom. With His strategies, we can navigate the current choppy waters of political and spiritual shift in America.
