We’re increasingly seeing nations throughout the West slide rapidly into a secular, anti-God worldview that ignores God’s Word and instead encourages everyone to do what is right in their own eyes (i.e., moral relativism). This worldview exalts man as the authority, and when sinful man considers himself the authority, the result is the moral and spiritual decline we’re seeing in nations around the world, including increasingly in my home country of Australia.
I’ve been saddened to read articles over the past number of months from Australian news sites reporting on radical changes taking place in that nation, largely due to the increased pushing of the LGBT agenda. Christians are being punished for holding to biblical views on marriage and gender, and even young children are being indoctrinated with an LGBT agenda. As with the rest of the West, Australia is headed for moral and spiritual chaos as the secular, humanistic religion takes hold of that nation. It’s a very small percentage of the population that is controlling the entire culture and forcibly trying to impose their anti-God worldview on people.
In response, we’re ramping up our Australian ministry—and I’m also coming to Australia very soon for two speaking events on Sunday, September 9, 2018. My first event is Sunday morning in North Buderim, Queensland, followed by an evening session the same day in Holland Park West, Queensland.
If man makes the rules, then why not redefine marriage, family, and gender?
Our prayer is that these free events will equip believers to stand on the authority of God’s Word from the very beginning. We want even more Christians to recognize the importance of allowing Scripture to be the authority in all areas—including history and science. You see, the moral and societal decline we’re seeing across the West is a direct result of man making himself the authority, instead of seeing God’s Word as the authority in all areas. If man makes the rules, then why not redefine marriage, family, and gender? Why not allow anyone to live anyway they please?
But we are not the ultimate authority—God and his Word are, and we need to allow his Word to shape our thinking and boldly share its truth with our dying culture.
If you live in Queensland, I hope you can join me at either of these events to get equipped and encouraged to stand on God’s Word and boldly proclaim the gospel. Learn more on the outreach page of our website.
I also encourage believers to attend Re-Engage, an all-day conference in Brisbane on Saturday, September 1, 2018. I spoke with fellow Aussie and geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling last year and received a wonderful, enthusiastic response from the attendees. I’m excited that, this year, my friends from Living Waters, Emeal “E.Z.” Zwayne and Mark Spence, will be providing practical evangelism and apologetics teaching to help equip Aussie believers to share the gospel with their friends, family, and neighbors. I encourage you to attend this conference to hear from these passionate evangelists—it’s sure to ignite a passion for evangelism in you, while giving you the practical training you need to effectively share the message of Christ with others.
Register today at Re-Engage.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
