As liberal theology spreads throughout our culture, and more and more people seemingly fall prey to the devil's exploits, it is more important than ever for Christians to live lives that point others back to Jesus before it's too late. Can America be restored? Find out on this episode of The Kingdom Ready Podcast With Todd Smith on the Charisma Podcast Network as he's joined by founder and president of Marketplace Leaders Ministry Os Hillman.
There are specific areas to which Hillman says we are called to leverage our influence—A "Seven Mountains Strategy." He says this strategy "represents seven areas of culture like arts and entertainment, media, government, education, business, family and church."
If Christians are going to impact culture, Hillman says, "We've got to focus our attention on helping [other] Christians live out their faith in those areas, because that's where people often establish their values and beliefs."
Our models are biblical examples like Daniel, Nehemiah and Joseph. Hillman calls them "marketplace ministers" who "used their influence with God to influence culture."
Host Todd Smith admits, "America is on a downward spiral." But he says, "We're not fully collapsed yet. And we could use our spheres of influence to redirect the culture."
Hillman agrees, "I think that we, as the body of Christ, have to utilize the gifting that He's given all of us to really be salt and light in these areas like never before."
The time is now. We cannot wait. Learn how to step into your calling to live out your faith with this seven mountains strategy in the full episode here.
