"The rise in government action, laws, and policies has had an impact on the ability of the Church to operate, their commitment to Biblical sexual ethics and biological reality."Kristen Waggoner
After a brief introduction, Kristen Waggoner, legal counsel for the General Council of the Assemblies of God and the CEO of the Alliance Defending Freedom, captured my attention with the statement cited above, which she unpacked over the next 30 minutes during a recent General Presbytery meeting. This video will allow you to hear firsthand the challenges we are facing as a church and nation.
The following are helpful recommendations gleaned from Kristen's presentation for staying true to Biblical sexual ethics while navigating current social trends for church, office, and camps:
As I listened to Kristen's presentation, I was reminded of Psalm 78:70-72, which reads,
"He chose David his servant and took him from the sheepfolds; from following the nursing ewes he brought him to shepherd Jacob his people, Israel his inheritance. With upright heart, he shepherded them and guided them with his skillful hand."Psalm 78:70-72
As God used David to masterfully lead Israel, I am confident he will use the ministers of the Oregon Ministry Network to effectively shepherd and guide God's people in today's challenging spiritual climate.
You can lead with confidence as a God-called shepherd of God's people!
