Are the Days of the Silent Pastor Over?

Politics that once focused largely on the economy, national security, and the deficit, now tackles important moral issues. These major issues have enormous implications; to remain silent actually makes a statement that we are not concerned enough. This is not just about the loss of jobs; it’s about the loss of morality. This shift requires us to stay closely involved. Topics that are “too controversial” are often critically important; we can no longer ignore them.

Revival Continues in California Despite Recent Restrictions, but Is it Legitimate?

Revival in breaking out across California and I believe what we are seeing in the sunshine state is genuine (in most cases). Is there genuine fruit? Does the experience align with God’s Word? Is the fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5 present: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control? A true, genuine experience with the Holy Spirit will produce godly fruit and obedience to God. It seeks to promote those things that are pure and righteous.
