“I keep politics out of the pulpit.” 5 devastating things that excuse will likely do to your ministry.

 

 

“I keep politics out of the pulpit.” I believe that there are 5 devastating things that excuse will likely do to your ministry. We have spent so much time talking about the hazards of speaking out that we have not realized the disasters of remaining silent. The nation is careening toward division that is even more intense than what we see now. Be warned! The middle ground is going to disappear soon.

This message is urgent. But it is not bashing pastors. It is my honor to work with thousands of sincere men and women of God in our pulpits.

Sadly, there are also many other preachers who are hoodwinked by the devil. They think they are doing the right thing by remaining silent on burning issues. It is deep in my heart for this to warn those preachers about the disaster that will come to any preacher who refuses to stand against evil when the evil is so glaring and the price of disobedience is so high.

It is wrong to keep politics out of the pulpit for the simple reason that it is no longer about politics…it is about evil.

I believe there are only two reasons politics is out of the pulpit: Preachers do not believe tyranny is about to destroy our freedom.

Or, they are so controlled by fear they are in denial about that tyranny.

No matter what, the tyranny is here and the Bible is clear about preaching in this season. Here are 5 disasters that will befall preachers who continue to hide behind a lame excuse:

1. Many in your congregation believe you no longer care about them.  They are being fired for refusing the vaccine or simply because they are Christian. Their children are suffering at school—being expelled for wearing Christian T-shirts—being groomed by teachers for sexual perversion—being labelled racist oppressors by Critical Race Theory. They are facing brutal things every day. If you do not address, equip, or defend them in the war against their families…well, no wonder they do not think you care. And do not be surprised when they take their family to a pastor who will stand up for them. The sheep want help. They need help. Paul said “I kept back nothing that was helpful…”-Acts 20:20

Christian moms go to school board meetings to confront child porn in the classroom. They look around and wonder “where is my pastor?”

2.You are ignoring your duty and power to stop persecution of the church. Paul models this duty for you in Acts 16: 37 “But Paul said to them, ‘They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out.’ 38 And the officers told these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans.” Paul did not say this to protect himself. He did it to protect the fledgling church at Philippi from rogue government.

3.God will seek a replacement. You are not only disappointing your people, you are grieving God. Mordecai delivered this warning of replacement to Esther. Esther 4: 14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Likewise, God gave you a pulpit and influence “for such a time as this.”

4.Government will not allow you to remain neutral. Acts 4: 19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. 20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.” Peter realized that he had no choice but to resist the irrational ban on the Gospel. He knew that left unchallenged, their restrictions would lead to control over everything they could preach.

In the great global reset, the state will hand you your sermon topics. In the short term silence will let you keep “woke” members, but in the long term you can lose everything.

5.You are also endangering the souls believers who consider themselves woke. Yes, there are many who see nothing wrong with combining Christ and Wokeness. They don’t see it because they are blind.

Denial will keep you from facing what Wokeness and Christianity cannot mix. Wokeness and Democrats no longer just support abortion, they celebrate it. They longer advocate for transgender rights, they are trying to destroy anyone who disagrees with their sexual mandates. They no longer disagree with the Bible and Christianity, they seek to eradicate it. Wokeness hates everything a Christian stands for.  If “woke Christians” in your church do not realize that they cannot be “woke” and Christian—that is a reflection on your preaching.

You should be more concerned about their souls than their membership.

You should be more concerned about their souls than their membership. You may have held on to them physically but they left the church spiritually. Worst of all, they do not know that the concoction of Christianity they cling to will not save them.

In conclusion: I see no upside to staying neutral and quiet. I see only disaster. In fact, I will probably not write on this subject again because the idea of remaining quiet about evil will very soon collapse under the weight of its own folly.

There is still great hope for every ministry that chooses to sacrifice for truth. Our ministry is seeing great fire and harvest. Before it is too late, follow Paul’s exhortation to Timothy. “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.”-2 Timothy 4:2
