Fear, Courage, and Easter (April 3, 2013)
Last week a newspaper reporter told FACT’s president she was shocked at how hard it had been to find a minister from a theologically conservative to church to comment in opposition to the gay marriage issue before the Supreme Court that week.
Ironically, this apparent lack of courage was demonstrated at Easter when our courage should be fortified by the reminder that the God who protects and provides for us has demonstrated His over power over even death. If God can save us from death can he not sustain us in the face of criticism? Sadly when those who lead the church have no courage, then those they lead will have no courage either.
Christ is alive. He has risen. Now it’s time for the Church to come alive and rise up as well.
