We’re Not the Moral Majority, but the Prophetic Minority
It was so refreshing to hear these words from Dr. Russell Moore, “We are not the moral majority, but the prophetic minority,” on CBNNews. He was speaking to the previous mindsets of Christians in the history of America where some formed organizations and called themselves the “moral majority.” Moral majority is a frightening identification for anyone who is in touch with what the apostle Paul speaks of in his letter to the Roman Church in Romans 7:7-8:4. The last thing Paul would call himself is a “moral majority” as so clearly stated here. I believe he would call himself totally dependent upon Jesus Christ, Who is able, to empower Him to live a life that is pleasing to God. I believe he would say through his complete reliance on the finished work on the Cross of Christ God’s Spirit empowered him to walk a moral life that he could have never done outside of the empowerment of Christ, yet he still failed at times even with good intentions, but God’s grace is sufficient and now that he walked with Christ he avoids and hate the darkness he once loved now that he lives in the Light, i.e. HUMILITY!
Polarization! – Are They Using Tips from Lucifer to organize America and the world?
Greg and Pat continue the conversation [see previous conversation] seeking an answer to the question is America and the world being organized? If it is, what for and how should we as Christians respond? Greg is sharing from the book “Rules for Radicals” that gives a shout out to Lucifer as the first one who organized a community and got his own way because Marshall Ganz, a well-known community organizer who says he worked with President Obama explains how you organized people saying to Bill Moyer, on the Bill Moyer and Company Program,…
“it’s like Saul Alinsky says… Organizers have to be well-integrated schizoids, because you have to polarize to mobilize and depolarize to settle. But without polarizing you’re never going to mobilize anything. And yeah, THEN there’s a time to negotiate…”Rules for Radicals. (1)
This makes logical since if you have to encourage someone or a representative government who may refuse to look deeply at how they may be being unjust in their actions. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr demonstrated that very well. With his stand for civil rights, but is also can be used for evil as so clearly written about in Saul Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals.”
It is amazingly eerie how seemingly most every point Alinsky makes in this book for community organizers seems to be demonstrated in the actions of our President and in those supporting the “fundamental transformation.”
Polarization is when you put people, organizations, ethnic groups, religions, nations, etc. against each other. Present one as a polar opposite of the other, then “egg one or both on” to go after the other.
Greg shares how it looks like not only has American Christians, religions, races, sexes, parties, houses of governments, judges been polarized, he has also seemingly been a part of polarizing Israel and the middle eastern Arab League nations, especially Iran. It is one thing to polarize a community because you want to traffic light, or even a nation for injustices and it’s an entirely different matter to polarize THE APPLE OF GOD’S EYE, Israel. Joel 3:1-2; Zechariah 2:8-9 listen to the broadcast for it in its entirety.
