Have you felt our culture's growing contempt for Christians?
Do you think things will "go back to normal" in our country-where the Christian faith is respected and considered foundational to our liberty?
Do you believe overt persecution is coming for Christians in the USA?
Victory through Voice grapples with these and other questions. Imagine how the first century disciples felt as they preached the good news to a culture that demanded their silence. We can look to their solutions-Christian love, Holy Spirit boldness, and firm faith in the Lord Jesus-as our way of responding to the current cancel culture. These first century Christians can encourage us in our time of being silenced and even persecuted. We, like they, must obey God and not the unbelieving culture.
Our society's celebration of sin under the guise of progressivism, tolerance, political correctness, and critical race theory threatens to destroy even the strongest denominations in this country. More than ever before, we need to speak the truth in love even when the culture demands our silence. All believers need to minister the gospel to our dying culture. Godly living and sharing the Word are essential to speak the message of grace, truth, righteousness, and life.
During this time when many voices clamor for lawlessness, confusion, chaos, and immorality, society tells Christians to stand down and be quiet. Cultural leaders seek to silence all voices that stand against the avalanche of evil. They defend their spiritual darkness. They call its activities good and call traditional morality evil. They strive to shut us in a closet so they can slam the door on our message of grace, truth, righteousness, and life. We must avoid the closet at all costs.
Victory through Voice discusses relevant issues such as racism, critical race theory, the 1619 project, gender confusion and other LGBTQIA+ issues, and abortion from a biblical perspective and in agape love. Many readers will have discovered that it is increasingly more difficult to speak out on these issues without being silenced, shamed, or canceled.
As Christians, how can we speak out in this toxic cultural climate? Will we be persecuted for speaking truth when the culture demands silence? Victory through Voice encourages us to follow in the steps of the first century Christians and trust Jesus for victory.
The book considers other topics such as prosperity, which has lulled many Christians to sleep, allowing the toxic effects of a rebellious culture to spread to K-12 schools, universities, media, entertainment, and even the military. During the Covid-19 shutdown, especially, we saw many isolated examples of persecution and silencing of Christians. Will this trend grow worse? We must use our voices to speak truth in love.
