Why Don’t More Pastors Speak Out on Moral and Cultural Issues?
Dr. Michael Brown
Have you ever wondered why more pastors don’t speak out about controversial moral and cultural issues? Why it’s rare to hear a sermon about abortion or homosexuality?
I’m sure many pastors would say, “That’s not my calling. My calling is to preach and teach the Scriptures, not to be a cultural commentator.”
But doesn’t the Bible itself comment on culture? Doesn’t God’s Word intersect with society? Didn’t the prophets of old confront the evils of their day?
Other pastors might say, “My calling is not to be political. My calling is to make disciples.”
But how should disciples live? What happens when we experience injustice in the workplace? What happens when our kids come home from school crying after the latest sex-ed class? What happens when racism raises its ugly head in our community? How do we respond as disciples?
Shouldn’t church leaders help us answer these questions?
I say the answer is emphatically yes: As leaders in the Body, we need to equip our people to deal with the cultural challenges of the day. And our people want to be equipped!
Why, then, don’t more Christian leaders speak out? The answer may surprise you.
