""I believe that strong, principled, courageous political leaders can be an enormous force for good," I told the audience of some 2,000. "But I also believe that as followers of Jesus Christ we dare not wait on any president, or parliament or prime minister to change the world for good." We need to help raise up a new generation of godly leaders who understand that the only thing the Lord is truly building in this world is His Church, not political movements or multinational corporations.
Jesus said in Matthew 16:18, "I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it."
Today, all around the world -- and even in the Middle East, the epicenter -- Jesus is building His church and He's also looking for people who will join Him in an eternal cause. He's looking for world changing leaders -- game-changing leaders --to show the world just how great and powerful and glorious He really is....I noted how discouraged and divided our country has become by the perception that our government is failing in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Lebanon and in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I pesonally don't believe we are failing. I believe the fight we're engaged in against radical Islam is the most important global struggle since the Cold War and the battle against Naziism. Failure is not an option. We dare not cut and run because a new Hitler -- Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad -- is on the rise and feverishly trying to build, buy or steal nuclear weapons. That's why I wrote Epicenter and made this new documentary film.
At the same time, however, I noted that we need to understand that the big, untold story in the Middle East is a story of dazzling success, not devastating failure. More Muslims are coming to faith in Jesus Christ today than at any other time in history. More than one million Shiite Muslims in Iran have converted to Christianity in recent years, up from just 500 in 1979. More than 5 million Sudanese have come to Christ in the last 10 to 15 years despite a radical Islamic government engaged in genocide. Even in Iraq, thousands upon thousands are coming to faith in Christ, many through dreams and visions of Jesus.
I believe that God is raising up a global movment of believers around the world to stand with these new brothers and sisters in the epicenter. It is our job to pray with and for them, to encourage them, to strengthen them, to fund them, to help them love their neighbors and their enemies in the name of Jesus as the Lord builds His Church through them despite Hellish opposition. God is looking for a new generation of world changing leaders.
The big question is: who will answer the call? "
