This is the New Christian Paradigm in the Public Square for the 21st Century
Houston Pastors

Last month, I wrote these words in an email to the 100,000 American Renewal Project pastors:

Evangelical and Pro-Life Catholic Christians can no longer operate on the model for civic engagement entrusted to us from the last generation, a sort of do-nothing approach.

The currency in the political arena is:
  1. how many votes can you bring to the table, or

  2. how much money can you bring, that brings votes to the table. Press conferences, mass distribution of press releases, and getting an interview with Megyn Kelly is public relations-useful for boosting one's reputation, improving one's image, and promoting one's self.

"Organizing" is the largest denomination in political currency. Speechifying is way down on the list of political currency, worth maybe a half-nickel on a dollar. A Sunday sermon is not a denomination of political currency.

After watching this video filmed by 100 Houston area pastors in response to the Texas "Bathroom Bill" (SB6), I want to throw my hat in the air and shout Hallelujah!

Pastors have begun to turn the corner and erect a new paradigm in public square for the 21st Century. And what is the goal? To restore America to her Judeo-Christian heritage and re-establish a Biblical-based culture.

Over the past fifty to seventy-five years, Evangelicals and Pro-Life Christians cowered under the false god of Secularism.

Consider just two public displays of ignorance and lack of spiritual wisdom.

First, ponder the carnal inclination of Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor; they see God in nothing. It's sad in a way, that with all of their learning and God-given intellectual firepower, they have no understanding.

Why? Because wisdom has a moral dimension. As Bruce K. read more
