Among Evangelicals, there is a rising trend of “counterfeit courage.” Christian leaders/pastors will “courageously” speak out against threats to the church, but only once it becomes culturally acceptable to do so. These men are mere “opportunists,” rather then actual leaders. Apart from real courage, a man will not be willing to say and do what’s necessary when the time comes. Biblical faithfulness assumes real courage, and compromise is the inevitable result when this courage is absent. If you want to continue to spiritually grow, you need to be able to discern the difference between counterfeit courage and real courage so that you can surround yourself with those who possess the latter.
