I just read an article by Russell Moore entitled The next Billy Graham might be drunk right now. Read it because it’s great. What Moore says should give us great hope for the generations after us, even though it may seem we should despair. The current state of the church and even the non-church right now is no teller of what it may be, as God likes to switch things on us. Or should I say He likes to switch people.
“The next Jonathan Edwards might be the man driving in front of you with the Darwin Fish bumper decal. The next Charles Wesley might be a misogynist, profanity-spewing hip-hop artist right now. The next Billy Graham might be passed out drunk in a fraternity house right now. The next Charles Spurgeon might be making posters for a Gay Pride March right now. The next Mother Teresa might be managing an abortion clinic right now.” ~ Russell Moore
Take heart. Have hope. And read the article.
