LESSER MAGISTRATE CONFERENCE:

You definitely do not want to miss out on our first conference of the year – it’s cutting edge! Join us Thursday, February 10, 2022 at 7 PM at the American Decency building (203 E. Main St. Fremont, MI) to hear Pastor Matthew Trewhella educate, stir, and encourage those in attendance on the lesser magistrate.

Are you familiar with the term “lesser magistrate?” Many of us could use some help in better understanding this lesser known Biblical doctrine. As Christians march boldly into this year we may not know what to expect, but we can be sure there will be some political challenges along the way.

Pastor Matthew Trewhella, this conference’s speaker, helps to define lesser magistrate for us:

“A magistrate is a person clothed with power as a public civil officer—whether executive, legislative, or judicial. As the title implies, a lesser magistrate is one who possesses less power than a higher magistrate. …”

“The duty of the lesser magistrate is to uphold that which is right in the sight of God and to protect the people where his local authority or function resides. This is a sacred duty. We define it as sacred because it is founded in Scripture and proceeds from God…”

“Simply put, the lesser magistrates provide order when the superior authority acts unjustly or immorally, and its abuse of power needs to be quelled.”

The whole of Pastor Trewhella’s article on lesser magistrates can be read here.

Much more will be coming to you on this important topic in the weeks ahead; look for it in your email inbox or visit us at www.americandecency.org. In the mean time, we urge you to look for those in authority who will stand righteously; pray for and encourage them to be Biblically bold!
