The institution of the Church is the primary force to affect change in a culture that so desperately needs it. God has commissioned us both individually and collectively to go and be the salt and light of the world, and to let that light shine before men. It is for this reason Eric Metaxas is coming to speak in Houma.
Many of us are concerned regarding the trends of our culture and are asking the question “What kind of world are our kids growing up in? “The efforts of Eric Metaxas, along with his team at BreakPoint, a ministry founded by Chuck Colson, are on the cutting edge of affecting change in our culture. They work tirelessly and are outspoken and active on a range of issues like abortion, defense of marriage, and the threat to religious freedom in America, just to name a few. They are winsome and articulate proponents of “making the invisible kingdom visible.” They work side by side in unity with people of different faiths.
Mr. Metaxas has written several books about Christian men who made an impact on the culture of their generation and we are experiencing the effects their efforts today. These are men who literally changed the world we now live in. Some of those books are 7 Men, Bonhoeffer Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, and Amazing Grace, all of which have appeared on the New York Times Bestseller List. Mr. Metaxas will be available to personally sign his books before and after the meeting on November 8th.
As someone whose faith was affronted by liberal philosophy in his college years at Yale, Mr. Metaxas has a special aptitude to engage the intellectual Christian, and provide students with the tools they will need to engage the counter-Christian ideologies they will face if they pursue higher education. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit local ministries in Houma such as Hope Extreme and The House of Restoration, as well as missionaries currently serving around the world.
Eric is funny and engaging, an entertaining speaker who speaks truth throughout his message. He has moderated debates with Bishop Spong and President Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright; and has spoken at the White House, including the keynote speaker at the 2009 Presidential Prayer Breakfast, on Capitol Hill, at West Point, Yale, Cornell, Princeton, and many other venues, and was the featured speaker at the 2008 Louisiana Governor’s Prayer Breakfast in Baton Rouge.
