The Centrality and Supremacy of Jesus Christ
I know it is not the approval of man that you seek, but we do appreciate you and the ministry of Woodland Hills. Thank you for challenging us as Christians to look beyond the easy road of life and our worldly desires to the call of the cross. We have been attendees at Woodland Hills off and on for over eleven years now and continue to pray for the ministry of Woodland Hills. I appreciate your message probably more than the Democrats who feel vindicated. My values certainly influence how I vote and where I spend my political capitol, but you have reminded me that my mission as a follower of Christ is to advance the Kingdom of God, and not a political agenda and given me tools to go into the world and do it. The entire Cross and the Sword series has been a great conversation starter too — the way you have articulated the conflict has lead to some amazing opportunities to witness to my colleagues in politics that are confused by the role the church has played the last twenty years. Keep teaching us new things and challenging us to move beyond our comfort zone.
