This is not about being for President Trump or against him. It is about why & how he surprisingly emerged and won 4years ago against all odds and this time with 73m votes, inspite of a pandemic shocked everyone with his followership. This was broadcast the day before the election
It sends a message to political leadership who may be cut in the bubble of governing thinking only in terms of political friends, catering only for the elites with influence. Its about the mass of people who feel forgotten which will give rise the unexpected happening.
Nigeria maybe ripe for this type of movement.

To be authentic you must speak from your journey, seek deeper interpretations to the events in your life and teach from that. Reason is, there is nothing new under the sun in terms of human experience. We may toay use more sophisticated tools but the emotions behind are the same.
Whoever is "successful" & gives advice their words must be consistent with who they are and their own experience. They can counsel out of their failures or successes but it must come from somewhere authentic. There was a reason why Jesus went to the temple to hear the Pharisses.
2. The reason he sat and allowed the Pharisees who had flaws to teach, asking them questions is that life is a continuum. Even the failures of the previous generation are meant to be lessons for the new and the new can only stand on the successes of the old to make real impact.

One of the worst things in leadership is to create an echo chamber around you where only those who agree with your point of view are allowed into your inner circle. Those with honest but different ideas are punished with exclusion. Every other person suppresses their convictions.
2. However what causes this is not as straight forward as many may think. The leader may have been betrayed in the past by those he trusted. His first experience with difference in opinion may have come through a very cantankerous person with the intention to break cohesion.
3. By removing the scorner, strife did cease and there was great cohesion within the group and through the power of agreement, great things were achieved. His institutional memory of "diversity" is therefore negative and makes him shy away from such opposing view points.

The Church cannot afford a liberal theology that is not founded on the written word of God. If that is allowed, we may increase our popularity but at the expense of spiritual power. In obeying God, we will have to contend with a dual opinion report some will say good others bad.
Am sure it will have been more popular for the apostles to have been directly involved in helping widows but in Acts 6:2 they said this, "Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, it is not reason we should leave the word of God and serve tables"
They had to clarify to the people God's intended role for ministry and then delegate the social work aspects to the laity. The force that propelled any minister into a place of influence is his or her prayer life and quiet times with the word. This is the root of our influence.

1. To those reaching out for the new. Nothing wrong with a new generation of ministers wanting to take the Church in a new direction. The Church is ripe for a new wave of the Spirit. However it won't be realized by attacking the old but by defining & substantiating the new.
2. You will fail if your voice is divisive. It must be substantiated from a heart void of offense. Once you start with a voice of attack & not words of knowledge, not with speech seasoned with salt ministering grace but in bitterness, you lose 95% of the people you want to reach
3. Understand this also, ministries are not born on the pages of social media but in the place of travailing prayer. If your soul hasn't labored in prayer over the sound you have heard in your spirit, you will only have a "near birth" experience i.e clouds without water.

1. Recently I heard of the pledge you had to sign up to in order to join the civil rights movement.

The Birmingham campaign pledge was a commitment card that, according to Martin Luther King, all volunteers were “required” to sign in order to participate in the movement.
2. The card consisted of ten commandments, including:

1) meditate daily on the teachings and life of Jesus.

2) remember always that the nonviolent movement in Birmingham seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory.

3) walk and talk in the manner of love, for God is love.
3. 4) pray daily to be used by God in order that all men might be free.

5) sacrifice personal wishes in order that all men might be free.

6) observe with both friend and foe the ordinary rules of courtesy.

7) seek to perform regular service for others and for the world.

1. If as Pastors we do not teach people to ask honest questions when they have a problem with teachings and their faith, if we teach them to embrace the attitude of "my pastor said it, I believe it and that settles it" even though they have unanswered questions in their hearts.
2. If we deny them the opportunity to be intellectually honest with us when they do have questions about the teachings then we are silencing something in them and we should be ready for the new challenge.
3. We would have "created" a people in whom critical thinking has been destroyed and when "error" comes in and they are easily taken by it, we should have no one else to blame other than ourselves for we would have created people driven by emotions rather than quiet discernment.
