Pastor Tony Evans Urges Christians to Live Out Godly Principles in ‘Modern-Day Babylon’ – or Future Generations Will Sufferfor Gospel Herald
GNN Note – We need more this type of service happening on the ground across the U.S. We need strong, outspoken Ministers that shepherding their flock in ways that motives them into action. The heathens are gaining ground as Christians hand it over instead of speaking up, pushing back and proclaiming God’s sovereignty and dominion.
ORLANDO — Pastor Tony Evans has warned Christians living in a “modern-day Babylon” that if they fail to consistently live out biblical principles before a watching world, true transformation will never happen, affecting generations to come.
Evans, a bestselling author and founder of the Urban Alternative, told those gathered at the annual Kingdom Advisors conference that “you and I are living in a postmodern age” where Christian principles are no longer valued.
“We’re living in Babylon right now,” Evans said. “But [God] says, ‘You can benefit Babylon if you will bring my world view and infiltrate it through my people in the culture,’ which is precisely what you are doing. You are seeking to bring God’s worldview into the culture so that it begins to spread through the businesses, through the families, through the ministries, in order to affect and infect the society.”
Currently, everyone is looking to politics to fix society, the pastor said, but transformation begins within the body of Christ: “God is not going to skip the church house to fix the White House,” he declared.
“Until God’s people begin to understand, implement, and apply God’s principles, whether it’s finance, whether it’s family, whether it’s race, whether it’s culture, until God’s people get consistent in applying God’s principles before the watching world, we will not see the kind of transformation that we need to see in the areas that we pray about,” he emphasized.
“Until it becomes the practice of the church, it will not infiltrate into the needs of the culture,” he continued. “While a lot of us are waiting on God, it’s actually God is waiting on us.”
