How many preachers do you know that would gladly forget all the worst aspects of a local politician if their politeness meant an invite to some public function?
The answer to that question is easy: TOO many.
It wasn’t ALWAYS that way.
Whether you look at the Black Robe regiment or Civil Rights preachers in modern history, and the Christian origins of the anti-slavery movement in US history, or the long line of Old Testament prophets who put tyrants in their place, the modern notion of religious leaders going with the flow is an abdication of a responsibility that earlier generations of God-fearing leaders understood all too well.
Today’s text focuses on a biblical example where doing the right thing and putting God above all else cost someone a far higher price than any of our flavor of modern pampered pulpiteers have ever had to pay.
Buckle up. This week’s message doesn’t pull any punches.
