I’ve thought much about leadership because early in my life I realized I was both designed and called to be a leader (whether I wanted to be or not). Leadership is both a God-given ability (“You can’t put in what God has left out,”) and a learned skill (“Leaders are made, not born”).
Four events happened in the past week that incited my thoughts on leadership. They include the Tucker Carlson/Vladimir Putin interview, the Robert Hur Report, the Super Bowl, and the birthday of America’s greatest president, Abraham Lincoln.
Sunday Bowl 57 between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles showcased some of the best offense and defense ever seen in football.
True, the offenses were better in the Chiefs 38-35 win, but both teams made it to the big game by playing good defense. Philadelphia, the best defensive team in the NFL, didn’t live up to that billing in the second half–and lost.
Here’s how we can apply the lessons of football to the current culture war for Western Civilization. People of faith must turn up the heat offensively and defensively to save their nations.
Last week I wrote about organized evil that appears to be growing in the United States and other nations.
The obvious questions are “What is allowing this to happen?” and “Why now?”
Today, I’d like to discuss what is America’s gravest and most ominous threat. It is not anarchists, God-haters and communists, snowflake universities, twenty trillion dollars in debt, global terrorism or North Korean nukes, or inept and delinquent political leadership.
