If you think throwing a Molotov at a riot or punching Nazis are part of taking a “Righteous Stand” … think again.
Donning masks and hitting people with clubs or mace is NOT “righteousness.”
It is, in fact, CRIMINAL activity. If you doubt that, feel free to drop the phrase “Antifa Mugshots” into your favorite search engine.
Watch Doug and Rich give those sanctimonious, sucker-punching sloganeers a reality check.
Actually stepping up for righteousness as a Christian takes a lot more guts than mobbing some randos at a march.
Violence should be reserved for the protection of others, or for situations where walking away is not an available option.
As for picking fights, even Jesus flipping tables and braiding a whip could never said he was ripping up the backs of the moneychangers. He was far more likely driving the cattle out of his Father’s House.
Notice where Jesus focused his open conflict? In setting his OWN house in order. The same plank-eye message he preached, he also applied.
Sure we can stand up and be critical of culture. John the Baptist sure did, and paid a steep price for it.
Rather than dressing in black and demanding that others conform to your will, Christ calls us to do something much more difficult … master our OWN passions and will.
Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. — Proverbs 16:32

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
