How To Deal With Bad Pastors & Bad Politicians

It really shouldn’t surprise anyone to see a cozy relationship between religious leaders and political power brokers.

The only thing that should really surprise us is how willing Christians are to put up with it.

Anyone who thinks God dances to the tune of any political movement could flip over to the 6th chapter of Joshua where he saw the Commander of the Lord’s Army. Joshua asked the question: “Are you for us, or for our adversaries?” That was the wrong question.

God is on His Own side.

It’s on us to fall in line with Him.

But because humanity is a messed-up, sinful critter, generation after generation needs ongoing remedial instruction on this Big Idea.

If the timid little quislings leading too many churches want to shake off their slumber and live in the prophetic instead of the pathetic and snip the strings of political puppeteers, we’ve got a text from scripture that will show you exactly how it’s done.

The Master himself and his God-ordained opening act put on a master class on how to handle the political powerbrokers whether they come from government, business, religion, or any other institution that thinks they have God dancing to their tune.

John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening.

This timely little tome chronicles the politically incorrect ministry of one of God’s most effective wildmen, John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Christ’s ministry.

The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.

In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.

Available in paperback for those of you who like the feel of the pages in your hot, little hands, on Kindle to keep it right at your fingertips, and as an epic Audiobook.
