Larry Tomczak Says the American Church Is Facing a Dietrich Bonhoeffer Moment

To those trying to convince us that these are America’s greatest days and revival is breaking out, I humbly challenge this perspective. Granted, there are “pockets” of some encouraging spiritual activity, but by and large the church is successful numerically but unsuccessful influentially.

How we need to take seriously the 2 Chronicles 7:14 promise:

“(If) My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from heir wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

In the meantime, opposition to Christianity is becoming more aggressive and hostile. Nowhere is this more evident than in the areas of natural marriage and sexual purity.

Who could have fathomed just a decade ago the ABC family network would feature a primetime show, “The Fosters,” with two lesbian “parents,” a transgender teen and two 13-year-old boys kissing?

How about rampant perversion and pornography a “click” away on kids’ and youths’ smartphones? Should it surprise me when our state newspaper, The Tennessean, features a front-page article that our college rape reports are up 77 percent?

How about laws being passed allowing men to share public restrooms and showers with our 10-year-old daughters because they identify themselves as a “transgender”?

One more …

After 5,000 years of Western civilization defining marriage as the union of a man and woman, we are on the precipice (barring miraculous intervention) of the Supreme Court imposing homosexual “marriage” on all 50 states. Marriage referendums passed by the overwhelming majority of citizens in state after state are probably going to be obliterated in this watershed moment and the floodgates opened for homosexual “marriage,” polygamy, polyamory and whatever.

Recently the largest Protestant denomination, the Presbyterian Church USA, changed the wording of its constitution to fully embrace sodomy-based “marriage.” Influential and heretical author Rob Bell stated on Oprah Winfrey’s TV program that the Christian church in America is “moments away from embracing gay marriage.”

I’m praying and fasting this not becomes reality but I’m also aware of how far the nation and church have fallen away from God. Judgment comes in diverse ways.

All of this means we must be prepared for greater risk-taking and courageous action in these “perilous” times foretold in 2 Timothy 3:1-9. Are you ready?
