David Platt, Senior Pastor of The Church at Brook Hills, has been gifted by God to humbly speak very boldly for the gospel of Christ. Everytime I have heard him speak I have been deeply convicted by the Spirit of God.
We look back on slave-owning churchgoers of 150 years ago and ask, “How could they have treated their fellow human beings that way?” I wonder if followers of Christ 150 years from now will look back at Christians in America today and ask, “How could they live in such big houses? How could they drive such nice cars and wear such nice clothes? How could they live in such affluence while thousands of children were dying because they didn’t have food and water? How could they go on with their lives as though the billions of poor didn’t even exist?
(Note: can you guess which one is David Platt?)
