...in order to change the world.
In Os Hillman’s book Change Agent, he states: “If we are to impact any nation for Jesus Christ, then we will have to affect the seven spheres or mountains of society…These seven mountains are business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family, and religion.” Hillman goes on to say: “It is important to have conversions, but it is more important to have those who are converted operate at the tops of the cultural mountains from a biblical worldview.” These are some challenging words that I fully support.
When we look at each sphere of influence, it’s easy to see how in the realm of business, the abolishment of the ‘Blue Laws’ did away with Sunday as a day unto the Lord. This had a direct impact on our culture. We witnessed how systemic racism and oppressions can dictate who receives loans, jobs, and promotions. The rules of engagement continue to lack integrity and rules to silence any godly communication or celebration are being banded.
