Needed: Uncommon Courage (September 19, 2012)
In his blog post last week, megachurch minister Rick Warren said, “In a world full of ideas and beliefs that go against God’s Word, God wants you to have an uncommon courage and stand up for what you know is true and right.” He is absolutely correct.
But what requires even more courage is for ministers and leaders in the church to provide the training that is needed in order for Christians to see the issues in our public square through the lens of a Biblical worldview.
The courage to speak within the church to those issues often deemed “political” or “controversial” in today’s culture is even more uncommon than that which is needed to speak to those issues in the world. Until Church leaders have the courage to teach their members, they probably shouldn’t expect to see much courage among its members to speak to others.
