Too Few Pastors Spoke Up. It's the Real Reason We're in This Mess Today

Spot-on article by Michael Brown. 

"I don't want to sound critical, and I'm not bitter or angry. But I am grieved. And burdened. So I will raise my voice like a trumpet and say it plainly and clearly: The relative silence of our pulpits has helped plunged us into our current moral morass. Do we have the courage and integrity to face this?

I'm not talking about pastors and leaders becoming political. That's the farthest thing from my mind.

But I am talking about pastors and leaders becoming prophetic. I am talking about us speaking the truth in love, regardless of cost or consequence. Confronting sin in the church as well as in the society. Conforming to the image of God rather than the image of the world. Concentrating on obedience more than relevance, on pleasing God more than entertaining people."
