Awakening the American Church: Call to Action Against Cultural and Political Decay

Eric Metaxas joins us with an urgent message that resonates through time from his latest work "Letter to the American Church, " challenging the church to awaken to its pivotal role as the moral compass of our nation. Drawing from a chilling historical parallel with the German church's silence in the 1930s, this conversation is a stirring call to action, asking Christians to boldly confront the cultural and political storms of our day. We delve into the stark realities of governmental overreach, censorship, and the quagmire surrounding transgender issues, underpinning the imperative for the church to reclaim its voice amidst America’s third great existential crisis. As the dialogue unfolds, we uncover the profound influence of Eric's book and its cinematic counterpart, crafted to stir hearts and minds within congregations across the nation. The documentary’s poignant message, underscored by the film’s availability for church screenings, signals a revival of collective responsibility and biblical citizenship. In this episode, we confront the encroaching shadows of globalism, contrasting it with the luminous ideals enshrined by America's founders, urging the church to stand defiant against a burgeoning one-world government that seeks to erode the sacredness of individual liberty and divine truth. Join us for a compelling episode that serves as a clarion call for the church to rise, engage, and preserve the freedoms we cherish. Support the show
