Speak Up… I Can’t Hear You!

15 Jul 2018 by SHRCChurch, Comments Off on Speak Up… I Can’t Hear You!

Make no mistake about it. We live in an era where the prevailing secular mindset demands that religious beliefs in general and Christianity in particular, abandon the public square and limit such beliefs to merely private individualized matters. The more out of sight and out of mind, the better!

We hear today that because the powers that be felt threatened by the prophecies of Amos, they directed him to leave his country and go elsewhere to preach. (from the kingdom of Israel to the kingdom of Judah). It’s an old story: guilty consciences and fallacious beliefs, resist correction and often resist violently.

We baptized, who like the Twelve, are sent to preach repentance from sin and falsehood in such a situation need to be mindful that we, who have been “…sealed with the promised Holy Spirit…” have courage as one of the gifts of that Spirit!

Our times need to hear loud and clear – in the public square – the message of the Gospel!
