On his American Family Radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer explained that the whole purpose of life is for people to prepare themselves to help Jesus Christ govern the world when he returns and that taking a stand against things like marriage equality and LGBTQ rights now is a sign that one can be trusted to help Christ “right the world right” in the world to come.
“When Christ returns, he is going to rule on the surface of the earth,” Fischer said, “and he is going to be asking us to help him run things. We’re now going to be under Christ’s reign in positions of authority to help him manage and direct and govern the Kingdom of God as it comes to earth and as it is administered on earth.”
Fischer said that “this life is designed by God to be like grammar school, like elementary school; the day is going to come when we are going to graduate and he wants us to be mature enough and wise enough to help him manage affairs on earth. It’s preparing us to exercise authority in the age to come.”
“So when we talk about the issues that ought to be exemplified, the values that ought to be enshrined in our culture, this is all part of us being prepared to exercise authority in the age to come, so we know Kingdom values, so we know what Kingdom values are,” he continued. “We know what the standards for society ought to be so when we get our turn to administer and to guide and to govern, we will know the policies, the standards that a society ought to be embrace.”
Fischer said that Christ is watching everyone alive today, looking for those he can trust to help him govern when he returns, “so when we talk about issues like homosexuality and the standards for marriage and sexuality and all that stuff, this is all a part of God preparing us to help him run the world right for the first time.”
