Part of the The Coming Spiritual Earthquake series, preached for Growing Together Radio

June 8, 2004, Los Angeles County Supervisors caved to the ACLU and will remove a small cross from its official seal. This is not the first attack on Christianity in the public square in America, and it won’t be the last. Dr James Dobson says “today, people of faith are being sent to the "back of the bus." Are you willing to go against the flow like a Cross on the courthouse in an ACLU world, or are you more like a dead fish who never saw a stream it couldn’t float down. Today we will examine the methodology we need to use to let our light shine when it is not politically correct.

We must never be silent. When you are a cross on a courtroom, don’t sit down, shut up and leave, instead, politely stand up, speak up and kindly explain the good news of the Gospel. We must tell the world that Jesus is the only way to eternal life. And today, Jesus wants to invade your life. Jesus is knocking at your heart’s door. .
