We are in interesting times as a culture. We are daily becoming more like the first century Roman world that was obsessed with sports, sex, and politics. Where are the Christians of old that took a stand for truth in the face of opposition and persecution?
Several years ago my friend Eric Ludy drew a line in the sand when he wrote the book The Bravehearted Gospel. Though I have been a fan of his writing for many years, I think this is Eric’s best work to date. The book is incredibly piercing and desperately needed. We need Truth. We need boldness. We need a backbone. Men and women who were willing to stand in the face of politics, in the face of the religious culture, in the face of hungry lions, and declare with firmness and unwavering devotion that Truth is not only unchanging but is Jesus!
The book causes a stir and a burning desire within one’s bosom to square the shoulders, to throw off everything and anything that hinders, and to lose one’s self in the pursuit of Truth, the Living Word, the Person of Jesus. It is the call of Christ, the essence of the Gospel.
When I first read it, God revealed that I was lacking a backbone in my own life. Even now, years later, there is a constant pressure upon my soul to rise up, be a man, and stand for Truth. I need to rescue the widow, the orphan, the destitute. I need to be a man full of the Bravehearted Gospel. I have only just begun the adventure, and the rest of the world vehemently needs to hear the call as well.
