~ Agathos Church is a non-denominational Christian Church in Columbus, Ohio. This blog post is an adapted excerpt from a sermon by Peter DeWitt. You can hear the whole sermon, Valuing what God Values (Part 6: Addressing Secular Humanism) by clicking here.
American Christians often think that the church should be separated from state, but that’s not what the constitution says! The state is not supposed to run the church, but as believers we are called to bring God’s will (His Kingdom) to every area of society! “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Mt. 6:10)
If the church does not shape culture for Christ, others will shape it for us. Secular humanism had taken hold of our government and educational systems with a motto of “good without God.” We are in a season where the foundations of secular humanism in our nation are being shaken and many believers find themselves disoriented.
God is looking for a band of believers whose minds are not confused by the ways of the world, but instead are clear about the Word of God. We do not need a pastor-in-chief. The church is called to disciple the nations. Secular humanism’s hold on our country is dying and God is positioning the church to fill that void and rebuild the walls of righteousness in our nation. A wave of revival has already begun in our nation and God is hoping to partner with each of us to cause His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven!
