Who is that preacher, and what was his message? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
Jake Sutton, preacher of the Moultrie Church of Christ, is director of a national effort called “Campaign: Capitol Hill” that brings pastors from Churches of Christ to preach at the nation’s capital.
A worthy endeavor. We looked around, but “Campaign: Capitol Hill” doesn’t have a website. They are on Facebook, if you care to look. Here’s what the rev said:
“We see our culture and country going farther and farther from the moral standard that pleases God concerning a nation and He cannot and will not bless any nation that continues to spit in His face by removing him from our government, our school systems, our political world and from our homes,” Sutton told the audience. “No one man, leader, elected official or president can change this situation, but rest assured, the Almighty God can.”
Give ‘em hell, Jake! How dare they remove God from our government and our schools? And even our homes! Let’s read on:
Eight men preached during the event Aug. 7: In addition to Sutton were [seven other fearless preachers, including] Dave Miller, the director of Apologetics Press, a creationist organization that gives the biblical approach to the known world in the realm of science [and others].
What an impressive bunch! Washington needs to hear from them. The news story continues:
Sutton preached on “Standing the Gap” and he explained it has always been God’s desire that his children, members of his church, stand in the gap between God and the wicked and to plead with them about repentance.
He’s not talking only about those politicians in Washington. He’s also thinking of you, dear reader. Here’s more:
Sutton said the event was covered and recorded by a live desk producer for NBC, based out of Charlotte, N.C. The Gospel Broadcasting Network was on site the whole day recording the event, he said. The Gospel Radio Network, based out of Texas will be airing it across their state and online to the world.
Wow — what coverage! They not only had one NBC reporter from North Carolina, but the Gospel Broadcasting Network was there too. This was a big event! Here’s the end of the story:
“This is just the beginning” Sutton said. “Lord willing, we will be back there next year and the permit is being secured to do so.”
You gotta admire preachers like Jake. He’s willing to take his vital message right into the lion’s den — and he’s going back next year. Things will start changing in Washington now. We hope it’s not too late!
