Today’s hot topic: A word to the woke

-

DR David Jeremiah, president of Turning Point Ministries and lead pastor at Shadow Mountain Community Church, San Diego, said the following during a recent Turning Point podcast:

‘One young pastor who I read about made this comment: “My generation in particular is prone to radicalism without follow-through. We have dreams of changing the world and the world should take notice accordingly. But we haven’t proven faithful in much of anything yet: we haven’t held a steady job; or raised a godly family; or done our time in BBS; or in some cases even moved away from the parental door. What we need in our churches today are fewer revolutionaries and a few more plodding visionaries”.’

The quote starts at 13 min 30 sec.

We think it could be paraphrased for the woke generation – including Miss Greta Thunberg – as follows:

‘A young social media influencer said: “My generation in particular is prone to radicalism without follow-through. We have dreams of changing the world and we shout loudly that the world should take notice accordingly. But we haven’t achieved much of anything yet: we haven’t held a steady job; raised a family within a stable and happy marriage, or learned enough to pass our school exams. We rely on Mummy and Daddy to feed us, clothe us, provide us with a comfortable home to live in, pay our mobile phone bills, drive us where we want to go, and give us pocket money. What we need in society today are fewer revolutionaries and a few more plodding visionaries”.’

Have we and the pastor got it right? Discuss!
