WATCH: Greg Laurie Has Some Striking Words for the Next Generation of Gospel Preachers

Published

Did Jesus ever worry much about being culturally relevant?

Not really.

In fact, the Messiah, during His ministry on earth, actually spent an awful lot of time exposing the trends and traditions of the day that deviated from the eternal wisdom found in the Holy Scriptures.

In a world that is dark and dying, it’s hard not to feel desperate in our fulfillment of the Great Commission to share the Gospel with everyone we meet.

It seems that many today have no interest in the dusty old Gospel, it can be tempting to try to make the Gospel fit into the world, rather than save the world with the Gospel.

Greg Laurie, who was saved as a young man through a youth Bible study, has an important warning for the next generation: worry more about the Gospel than you do about the ways of the world.

Or, as he put it, be careful not to “sacrifice the Gospel for ‘coolness.'”

“I was a 17-year-old kid. I was using drugs every single day. I was going in the wrong direction in my life,” Laurie says, in a recent video posted to Christian video service PureFlix’s Facebook page.

Laurie is the founder of Harvest Crusade and Harvest America, and currently serves as the pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California.

As a teenager, his life was changed forever when he came across a Bible study on the lawn of his high school.

As he listened in on the study, he heard the words that would forever change his life: “Jesus said, ‘You’re for me, or against me.'”

At that moment, he asked himself: “Am I against Jesus?”

He says the question so touched his heart that he accepted Christ that very same day.

He is now sharing this message for those, young and old, who are in the same position he was, and also explains why he believes America may soon witness a second Jesus revolution.

Lord, we know your Word is what our nation sorely needs!

Beto’s Bizarre and “Witchy” Rituals are Dumbfounding Democrats

Let’s not overlook the fact that O’Rourke also subjected his family to his esoteric gibberish as well.

Beto O'Rourke

The behavior of Beto O’Rourke would the prime fodder for the writers over at Saturday Night Live, if they were ever inclined to take a shot at a liberal politician. No, the folks over at NBC likely won’t be talking about Beto O’Rourke’s whimsical mysticism, or the fact that he believed that eating magical dirt would give him superpowers. That second bit, while certainly a striking and piercing accusation, is absolutely true. O’Rourke, who came up short in his bid to unseat Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, despite raising $80 million for the Senate push, told the story of his earthy snack in a sprawling 3,000-word profile published by The Washington Post. “In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers,” the profile reads. “He brought some home for the family to eat, too.” This shamanic nonsense comes to us just days after O’Rourke’s sprawling interview in Vanity Fair had the 2020 democratic candidate discussing how politics are his “destiny”, and how he was “born to” run for President. Beto’s latest tirade came at the expense of the electoral college – a system of voting that the democrats are increasingly looking to alter. “I think there’s a lot to that. Because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor,” O’Rourke said in a video posted online on Tuesday. “It puts some states out of play altogether, they don’t feel like their votes really count. “If we really want everyone to vote, to give them every reason to vote, we have to make sure their…

Ditching the Electoral College is Popular Among Dems…Here’s Why

If you think this is a good idea, you should speak with folks in Northern California and Upstate New York…

electoral college

Of all of the issues that we expected to see arise during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, one may easily carry with it the most weight. That idea is the abolishment of the electoral college; the system of voting that our nation has utilized since 1804.  Sure, the process can be a bit tedious and tumultuous at times, but, as the President himself explained, there is a very real purpose for this convolution. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108187855954870272 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108190837257764864 The Commander in Chief makes a great point here, and it’s one that the people of Northern California and Upstate New York can attest to well. You see, in those states, the popular vote is used for a number of ballot initiatives and general public decision making.  In both of those states, the liberal population hubs of The Big Apple and the beaches of Southern California completely overwhelms the rest of the state’s far more rural and conservative population.  This means that, proportionally, a tiny fraction of the state is lording over the greater mass of the state on all matters. To some, it sounds a bit like a King in his castle, looking out amongst the vast expanses of farmland in serfdom. For others, the issue is not just the idea of taking away a well-established, tuned, and tested system for voting, but rather the appearance that this move, combined with other liberal pipe dreams, is all due to their poor sportsmanship at the end of the 2016 contest. President Trump had a tweet for that, too. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108217768187449344
