I’m a Reluctant Revolutionary

I really enjoy being a local church pastor.  I enjoy teaching the Bible, discipling men, and leading a church.  I was born to teach and lead.  It’s what I’m good at, and it’s what I signed up for when I took up the calling to fulltime ministry.

I’ve never wanted to lead a movement.

But over the last few years, as I have observed what’s happening in our nation, I have become increasingly concerned.  I think what really got me thinking was the government mandate to shut down our churches in April of 2020.  What made me uncomfortable during the covid scare was the lack of facts, the lack of research, and the arrogance of the mainstream media.

As I studied the covid19 situation during the “pandemic,” I could see that the closure of businesses and churches had less to do with safety and more to do with governmental control.

When I decided to open my church, The Road @ Chapel Hills, in May, 2020, I did it based on biblical principle, well-researched data on the virus, and a deep conviction of the fear of God. Since that time, the facts are coming in that most of the Church got taken with a bait and switch that is proving to be exactly what I suspected—government control and a desire by the elites of Big Tech, Big Gov, and the mainstream media to diminish our freedoms.

El Paso County

In El Paso County, our church and many of our leaders have become involved in many government issues and numerous educational causes; and we have worked hard to save the lives of many covid patients by using vitamins and natural supplements that have literally saved the lives of over 1,700 people.  We have worked closely with elected officials to keep our freedoms alive.  This is becoming a Kingdom of God revolution that is building a great county!

It has been exciting to see how important it is to get involved in fighting for educational, governmental, spiritual, and medical freedoms; the very freedoms that our Constitution protects.  Would I rather just sit on the sideline and let things happen? Yes.  But I just can’t.  I can’t because something bigger is happening right now.

Because of our success in elections, school board involvement, and building our church, it is exciting to live in such a free county.  In El Paso County, we have no business or church closures, and no mask or vaccine mandates!

Recently, one of my sons was home. He lives in a “red state,” and he commented to us, “Wow, there is such freedom in El Paso County and Colorado Springs. It feels freer here than in Georgia!”  I love it.  Let’s keep the revolution going!

 

A Reluctant Revolutionary,
