Are You Taking A Stand In The Pulpit?
By Scott Anderson on Nov 3, 2012
During this critical election season, we have the privilege and the obligation to take a stand for the values we believe in.
This short video from Decree for America is simple but powerful. What do you stand for, and how will your take your stand? As a pastor and leader, are you willing to stand up for biblical values—both in the pulpit and in your life?
During this critical season, we have the privilege and obligation to take a stand for the values we believe in and not shrink back. The way we take a stand is also important. We shouldn't convey our beliefs and values in arrogance, but in humility and love.
Discussion: How are you handling the election season? Are you making a bold stand on biblical issues or do you keep a reserved stance to allow your people to decide on their own? How far should we go in the pulpit when it comes to politics and policies that impinge on biblical values? Share your thoughts, feedback and stories in the comment section below.
