Prophetic Office (via Russell Moore)

Onward

I’ve been busy reading and writing (thought not immediately for this blog) but I wanted to quickly pop in and share this quote from Russell Moore in the book Onward.

“The prophetic office is, after all, different from the kingly office. We do not rule in the present era as kings. We have been given no such authority as the church. We have, however, been given an assignment to be a witness. The prophets bore witness to the kings and rulers and nations, pointing to what their consciences already know, if only at the subliminal level. But the judgment was left to God.”

So far anyway, this book is pure gold. It’s a great balance between a call to political and cultural engagement and a call to remain faithful to the gospel.
