Eric Metaxas Christian thinker, philosopher, and public intellect has lit a signal fire for Christians to stand strong in their faith against cultural evil through his new documentary film titled LETTER TO THE AMERICAN CHURCH.
“It’s up to believers to speak up for what is right and good and true, and to bring our faith into the public square; not to be afraid of politics — to get involved in politics — because this is one of the ways God has given us to effect change,” Eric told The Christian Post. “And I think a lot of people are more worried about being liked. They think that being a Christian means ‘I don’t argue with people; I’m winsome all the time.’ And sometimes you have to battle.”
Metaxas stated bluntly: “If you, as a Christian, do not participate with those who are standing against it, the Lord will allow evil to continue to rise, and what we’ve seen is just the beginning. It will come for absolutely everyone. And that’s the warning.” “You think it’s just going to happen to other people,” he continued. “That’s never the case. It happens to them first. If you do nothing, eventually it will find its way to you and to your family, and I think that we’re commanded to love our neighbors. If you love your neighbors, you won’t let this stand.”
Metaxas first wrote the book: Letter to the American Church, an it became a surprise success.
The description of the book reads, “Can it really be God’s will that His children be silent at a time like this? Decrying the cowardice that masquerades as godly meekness, Eric Metaxas summons the Church to battle. Silence is not an option. God calls us to defend the unborn, to confront the lies of cultural Marxism, and to battle the globalist tyranny that crushes human freedom. Confident that this is His fight, the Church must overcome fear and enter the fray, armed with the spiritual weapons of prayer, self-sacrifice, and love.”
The documentary features Metaxas, as well as Charlie Kirk, Dr. James Lindsay, Pastor Rob McCoy, Seth Gruber, Pastor David Engelhardt, Victor Marx, Eileen Marx and Pastor John K. Amanchukwu Sr.
“LETTER TO THE AMERICAN CHURCH lays out the parallels between early 1930’s Nazi Germany and other totalitarian regimes, including Mao, Stalin and what is happening in America today and how the Church has been silent in the face of this evil,” Yahoo reported. “Because of America’s influence, the Church has received a calling to defend the voiceless and speak against the powers that silence the cry for freedom. The film argues that the Church’s decision to stay out of politics undermines the very message of the gospel and its power to transform every sphere of human existence.”
