Confrontation without Compromise or Condemnation

Fire in Our Bones - Part 3

Listen to podcast audio:

Claude Houde joins the Gary Wilkerson Podcast for a conversation on the work that God is doing in the church today. He explains how the church can value older generations while ministering to younger generations at the same time.

Key Points from the Podcast

  • There are eternal things, but culture is always changing. Pastors and church leaders must be like the sons of Issachar who understood the times in which they were living.

  • A wise leader will know how to honor the older generation while also bringing in younger generations.

  • In a culture that continues to grow more pagan, the church must continue to proclaim Christ and shine as a light in the darkness.

  • Christians must be careful not to get so entangled in cultural battles that they are known only for what they are against.

  • We can’t expect a secular society to accept Christian values without first accepting Christ. Preach the gospel and trust the Holy Spirit to lift the veil from blinded eyes.

  • Pastor Claude Houde encourages Christians to follow Jesus’ example of confronting culture without compromise or condemnation.

  • Pastor Gary Wilkerson concludes this podcast episode praying for the US and the church of Jesus Christ to be uncompromising and Christ-centered.
