SHARING A HARD MESSAGE WITH THE RIGHT HEART

By David Warn | January 22, 2020 | 0 Comments

Probably all of us would rather share an uplifting and inspirational message rather than something difficult for people to hear. What then should we do when God calls upon us to deliver a hard message?   As the founder of Forerunners of America, I’m frequently called upon to deliver such challenging messages. One of the…

Today’s guest blogger is Sarah Monson.   “Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving.”   The…

Are We Losing Our Religous Liberty?

ARE WE LOSING OUR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY?

Speaking at the University of Notre Dame on October 11, 2019, U.S. Attorney General William Barr argued that the cultural degradation in America today is unique from other points of history and other immoral societies. According to Barr, our hope rests in restoring the traditional religious values that are under assault. Moreover, “We must place…

Culture of Lies - Understanding Fake News and Its Spiritual Ramifications

CULTURE OF LIES

Nearly half of all Americans have a negative view of the news media. Only 44% say they can think of a news source that reports the news objectively, and 66% say news outlets do not do a good job of separating fact from opinion. Now we have a president who regularly calls mainstream news outlets…

America's Drift

AMERICA’S DRIFT

From the early 1960’s until now, American culture has undergone a transformation that has left it almost unrecognizable. This shift is not only apparent to all who take the time to observe it, but it also has significant implications for the future. There are four particular cultural changes that should concern every Christian familiar with…

Making America Great Again

MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

For Christians to sit as spectators in the stands while rooting for President Trump to Make America Great Again is foolishness. Government and legislation are important but can only take a nation so far. How then can the church be used of God to make America great again?

Whatever Happened to Holiness

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO HOLINESS?

It’s a rare conversation when Christians discuss how to live a holy life. Indeed, conversations often lean toward embracing a form of grace that does not appear in the Bible and results in people feeling less convicted about sinful habits and repeated failures to follow God….

The Dangers of Normalcy Bias

THE DANGERS OF NORMALCY BIAS

I’m outside enjoying the unusually green July grass, birds singing, lush forest, and I’m not in a hurry to do anything while I sip a cup of coffee. It seems almost impossible that something could disturb this peaceful atmosphere. And yes, I want it to last as long as possible.   Even so, as I…

Is FOA Politically Motivated?

IS FOA POLITICALLY MOTIVATED?

At Forerunners of America, we are focused on warning people about three things:   1) The consequences of ignoring our national purpose of drawing people back to God (Acts 17:26–27) 2) The consequences of God’s people remaining silent on moral issues in our country 3) The consequences of our nation’s rebellion against God’s moral standards…

Are You Sleeping

ARE YOU SLEEPING?

There are few things more tragic than a sleeping church in a time of great need. In Luke 9:32, as Jesus prayed on the mountain, His appearance was radically transfigured. Yet, Peter, James and John almost missed it, simply because they were “overcome with sleep”….

Have Churches Evolved Into Entertainment Centers

HAVE CHURCHES EVOLVED INTO ENTERTAINMENT CENTERS?

Wilhem Ten Boom, a Dutch pastor in the 1930’s, tried to awaken his listeners to a biblical understanding of Europe’s instability and the rise of a new dictator, Adolph Hitler. Rather than responding to his messages with faith-filled action, one church after another decided…

Full Engagement

FULL ENGAGEMENT

My overarching takeaway from our recent Forerunners conference is the necessity for me (and each of God’s people) to become fully engaged in God’s now purposes. Simply put, a business-as-usual mindset will not win the day nor adequately prepare us for the future.   As a backdrop to this takeaway, I am reminded that Jesus…
