Fearless

Fearless…

No, I’m not talking about Taylor Swift :)

Far from it.

I just wanted to take a minute to comment on a fearless leader.

Fearless means unafraid, bold, brave, courageous, dauntless … and all of these words describe Pastor Voddie Baucham. He’s long been known for his dedication and obedience to God’s word, even when it means going against the cultural grain. A few days ago, he did something that most pastors would never dream of doing. He wrote a blog post on politics.

I respect him for doing this. I’ve always felt like it was a major no-no for anyone in ministry to talk about politics (could risk your popularity), but never felt like it was right. So, I am glad that Pastor Baucham broke this unspoken Christian ministry taboo and shared his opinion.

I’m glad that he makes it clear that his hope is not in politics or candidates, but in Christ. And I’m glad that he is transparent enough to let us into his reasoning of who he is voting for and why. More Christians should speak up. Not forcibly, but transparently.

We need more fearless Christian leaders. Men not swayed by cultural Christianity or man’s opinion, but only concerned with God’s opinion.
