Why does America desperately need pastors to Speak Up?
“Growing government intrusion into the affairs of the Church is posing a serious threat to church autonomy and our most basic religious freedoms. Pastors are being censored, the proclamation of God’s Truth is being blocked, and churches are being discriminated against and threatened with punishment.
This was not the intention of our Founding Fathers…And throughout our nation’s history, churches have been recognized as the moral leaders of our society and Christians have enjoyed the freedom to express their religious beliefs.
“The Church’s assignment is to be the moral and cultural conscience of the nation.”
Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr.
Church of Hope in Beltsville, Maryland
But all of that is changing very quickly. At the urging of anti-Christian groups seeking to secularize America, courts and government are increasingly treating our churches more as nuisances than as pillars of the community. And some are treated not just as nuisances, but as criminals for exercising their Christian faith!”
