GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. (WordNews.org) Jan. 12, 2018 – Robert Bakke has a litany of accomplishments under his black belt, including being a best-selling author, NASCAR driver and jet captain.
He’s also a reverend, and he’s delivered a clarion call to his fellow pastors: Step up.
Bakke says Hollywood has replaced the church in America and it is dismantling the country on all fronts.
“America’s economy, our morality, and even our common sense as a nation has been derailed by a Hollywood culture that is totally self-absorbed and full of hypocrisy,” Bakke said. “Hollywood’s influence must be overpowered by the church, but that won’t happen until every pastor in America rises up with the guts to fight.”
Bakke believes well-financed churches are critical to providing the resources for the faith community to produce its own movies and programs that will ultimately “reshape the morals and prosperity that made America the most successful nation in history.”
He said the Hollywood elite have been using their entertainment platform to spread their own gospel on a variety of issues.
“They use their media platform to shape the public’s political opinions, and thanks to Hollywood’s movies and primetime television shows, we now have little boys believing they can be little girls as a matter of choice,” Bakke said. “It’s got to stop, and that means pastors must rise up with fearlessness and start pushing back.”
Bakke cites the 1954 Johnson Amendment as the culprit that began the church’s declining influence, but says pastors need to remember the God they serve.
“He is a powerful, wealthy God who commands us to win, which is something many organized religions have long forgotten, and every churchgoers needs to hear,” Bakke said.
