How many times in the passing of a year does the average American evangelical attend church and hear some combination of: “Christians need to expect persecution, we are just pilgrims in a strange land, and Jesus will rescue us through the Rapture”? It is difficult to know where to start, in my attempt to keep this simple and short. Yes, it is true that there is to be suffering in this world, as we hear every Sunday of our dear Saints that are in pain; and yes, we are but travelers passing through; and yes, we are not of this world. But – Matt. 28:19 says: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, …” Should not the sheep expect to be guided – from our pulpits – by a message that stands our ground at some point and tells them who is in charge of what? That is what I am looking for: just a small bit of Biblical push-back; just a little of showing that Jesus Christ is Lord of Lords and every knee will bow (Romans 14:11). Should we not be hearing something like that coming from our pulpits?
