After losing his race for lieutenant governor of Virginia back in 2013, E.W. Jackson became a senior fellow with the Family Research Council and in that capacity, he spoke at FRC’s “Watchmen on the Wall” conference last week, where he preached that those in attendance should be regularly donating to support FRC’s “missionary” work to all of the non-Christians in America.
“It bothers me to think that my own country is a strange land,” Jackson proclaimed. “I never thought that there would be a day when my nation would prosecute the Bible-believing Christian for standing for what the word of God says and reward those who come against it as if they are heroes, as if they are great Americans for standing up against God. But that’s where we are. I never thought I would see the day where people would brag about their ability to destroy children in the womb, but that’s exactly what we have today.”
“It ought to make us weep,” he continued. “Sometimes it seems like we’re living in a foreign land … There comes a time when we need to be willing to give. God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. Well, who should we give to, Bishop? Well, I know that most of the churches in here probably have missionary budgets, but you know, I’m here to tell you today that there’s a new mission field called the United States of America and that the Family Research Council is a mission organization. And we need to be prepared to give to help take the word of God to the lost and dying in the United States of America. We’ve got as many souls that need saving here as they have in Africa or Asia or anywhere else in the world. Increasingly, we’ve got people here who’ve never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ and they need to hear it. We gotta give! We gotta give!”
