"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
"But if the watchman sees
the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not
warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand."
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge."
I'm writing you from deep behind the pro-abortion lines at the Texas State Capitol. As I write this, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis is an hour and a half away from successfully filibustering the pro-life omnibus bill. Whatever happens on this legislation, however, one thing is obvious.
We need to have a conversation about stewardship.
While God is sovereign over this world, He also expects us to act as prudent and wise managers of all that He entrusts us with. That includes our votes. And Christians in Tarrant County have been terrible stewards of the votes God has given them.
In 2012, Wendy Davis won re-election by barely 6000 votes.
And that's where you come in. Your flocks allowed Wendy Davis to squeak through last year. 50% of Christians don't vote nationally, and I suspect the numbers are similar for your own congregations.
Fortunately, God is graceful. He will forgive us for allowing things to get this far. The question is: what now?!? Now that you know that this Texas Senator was elected out of YOUR community by barely 6000 votes, what are you going to do about it?!? As Christian leaders and men of God, it is your duty to inform your flock.
This revolution begins in the pulpit.
