|May I add that David is an adorable husband and father?|
David's passion, hope, zeal and urgency for the Gospel of Jesus Christ radiated from his countenance as his voice even cracked with emotion as he challenged the several hundred Christians that were gathered on issues where professing Christians and Christian leaders have been strangely silent.
He urged us to take the same Gospel—which burns in our hearts and compels us to speak against the horrors of injustices like the concentration camps, poverty, starvation, orphans, sex trafficking and slavery—to stand in direct opposition to the moral disasters of today of abortion, sexual immorality, and so-called "same sex marriage."
David gave us 4 Biblical principles drawn from the book of Genesis to show that followers of Christ do not have the option of being passive and silent on these social issues. He was particularly concerned about the lack of zeal among younger evangelical Christians (although not exclusively younger Christians) against these morally disastrous social issues.
I taped David's entire 45 minute talk and hope to get that out to you next time, to encourage you to not be silent on these issues in your life, but to take a clear stand to protect the unborn, socially accepted pornography (and worse), and marriage—just as you would if you lived in the days of the atrocities of the German concentration camps or the culturally accepted days of slavery in the South.
I'll give you those 4 Biblical foundations David gave us from Genesis next time, along with the entire talk to the professional video. Be prayerful for God's courage to help you receive and then stand up for Biblical truth!
Listen to his five minute introduction and challenge to Christians!
It's Wednesday and time for Wednesday's Prayer Girls and Link-Up Party!
Before we begin, I wanted to mention that I'll be giving away two gorgeous ceramic prayer bowls made in Portugal for www.PrayerBowls.com in September!

|Isn't this prayer bowl lovely? |
Mine sits on my kitchen table where we can easily pray for others after we eat.
