HOW Then Should WE LEAD?

The film By What Standard? identified worldly ideologies and depicts their influence on evangelical teaching and churches. When we finished watching the film, we felt a deep sense of responsibility for the present situation. Pastors are to keep watch over the flock. And this happened on our watch. We began to see that we have confessed the Bible as inerrant. We have held the Bible to be sufficient. We have spoken of the authority of Scripture. But we have not wielded that Word right here in the world God made.

The inerrant Word sits encased in glass on the mantel, well-lit and plenty sharp. But it is time for pastors to lay hold of that sword and employ it in the battle as God commands. Doing so is costly. Doing so hurts. Doing so is dangerous. And courage is required.

The sons of Isachar lived in tumultuous times. They knew two things. They understood the times and they knew what Israel ought to do (1 Chronicles 12:32). We’re convinced that a coming generation of pastors and Christians need to know the times, and they need to know how to “do the word.” In a phrase, they need to wield the sword.

Founders Ministries is now working on producing a series called Wield The Sword: Pastoral Courage In Perilous Times. It is a call to arms. By God’s grace we hope to encourage and equip pastors and Christians to take up the sword of the Spirit and wield it with courage. We intend to do a several part episodic docuseries covering how to wield the sword in these areas:

1. The Word and The World

2. Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

3. Vocation

4. Aesthetics

5. Education

6. Church

7. Race Relations & Justice

8. Preaching and Pastoral Ministry

9. Family

10. Sexuality

11. Culture

12. Economics

13. History

14. Metaphysics

15. Authority and Responsibility

Why are we doing this? Because more needs to be done. Many have seen the challenges we’ve been articulating. Many have asked what might be done to bring God’s Word to God’s world. In the response to these requests, we are moving forward with this new work and ask you to join us and wield the sword.

Help Fund season two!

Your financial support will help us make this series available to pastors and churches in American and beyond. We believe that, as God’s people are informed about the nature of the worldly philosophies that are infiltrating evangelical congregations and institutions today, they will rally to the call to “contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). Thank you for investing in this vitally important effort.
