BOLD LEADERS ARE NEEDED!
Does that sound right to you--that God's leaders today should be bold?
Some folks think the word "bold" doesn't fit well with God's leaders. In fact, they think it doesn't fit well with Christianity itself! They think God's leaders, as well as all Christians, are supposed to be quiet and passive.
Yet, what do we find when we go to the Bible? We find leaders who were humble and lowly, yet were bold and aggressive at the same time. Do you want some examples?
When one disregards the sacredness of that which belongs to God he can hardly be expected to be reliable in his word and in dealings with others. He can be depended upon only so far as business policy, public sentiment or some such motive many seem to him best in promoting his own selfish interests.
To some, these statements may seem extreme. But, are they? Can you expect one who does not respect that which belongs to God to respect that which belongs to man? Why should you?
