Opinion | Church in America, wake up

“Christian Pastors in America have largely refused to intertwine political issues and biblical truths because of fear of backlash. The truth is, they can’t be separated.”

Fellow Alabamians,

It has been a long while since I reached out to you.

I’m thankful to Bill and Susan Britt and the Alabama Political Reporter for agreeing to release this message because it’s an unusual message for a “political” publication.

This message below is a sermon given by Pastor Gary Hamrick of Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, Virginia.

He gave this sermon a few days prior to the election; it’s a history lesson on “Church and State” and answers the question clearer than I’ve ever heard it answered before:

“Should Pastors delve into politics from the pulpit?”

The truth is, they can’t be separated.

Pastors in America have a long history of discussing political issues of the day and have done so from the pulpit since 1776.

Pastor Hamrick’s message convicts the American “church” in words that are not sharp and condescending; but in the soft manner in which Christ would speak.

I encourage you to take the time to listen to this message and share it with your Pastor, your friends and family.

May the Lord Bless this nation, time for the Church to “Wake Up.”
