ABOUT THIS EVENT
Does it matter what happens in culture as long as I do what's right?
Should the church speak when The Moral Law is overturned?
Is there any hope for the chaos and confusion of our time?
Does God care about our laws?
When a nation's most powerful institutions reject God's Moral Law and redefine it for everyone, certain things are inevitable:
And who condones the actions of these groups - are they not also responsible?
It is not begging the question to say that all church leaders should know the importance of the Church speaking about violations of the Moral Law, and consequently be leading the way in this area.
There is adequate proof from Scripture, church history, and modern research to support the need for strong Church leadership regarding moral standards in society. One does not have to look very far to find tragic examples of the consequences of the Church's failure to speak clearly, and with one voice, on the issue of the State's legislative overthrow of God's Moral Law.
Join us as we discuss how & why the Church should respond to institutional (e.g. government, media, academia, & big tech) violations of God's Moral Law, and why it is dangerous and unbiblical to remain silent.
