Christians have been arrested in Turkey again. This time for “street evangelism.” A government official claims they are more dangerous than terrorist organizations. Perhaps he is right in a sense. Terrorists can blow up buildings, vehicles and people. The Gospel breaks open the gates of hell. We need to ask ourselves if we are dangerous enough. Do we proclaim the Gospel clearly and boldly? Is the trumpet which sounds from our pulpits clear or muddled. Does our proclamation clearly declare Law and Gospel or do the listeners take away from sermons whatever they want? Perhaps our sacristy prayer should include: Lord, make me dangerous today.
