Refuse to battle people and institutions. The real battle
for the soul of a culture is a warfare empowered by love. It is always waged
beyond the most visible and heated battle lines drawn by sensitive social
issues like cultural diversity, race, gender, sexual orientation, personal
politics, packaged news broadcasts, fear-based advertising and everything else
that wants to divide people against each other.
When people of faith join a movement of refusal they will
step into supernaturally empowered solutions that can never be achieved when we
fight and struggle with the same failed weapons and tactics of battle employed
by the world around us.
Refuse! is a resistance movement that will change
everything. Most importantly, it will change the way we think enabling us to
accomplish infinitely more than we could ever hope or imagine had we remained
hunkered down in the fruitless trenches of natural battle firing off the
weapons of anger, wrath, and division.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,
against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the
spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12).
