(Natural News) Dr. Rick Scarborough, Christian activist and founder of Recover America, joined Dr. Steven Hotze in the Oct. 31 episode of “The Dr. Hotze Report” on Brighteon.TV to discuss why having godly people running for public office is important.
“A society led by a government praising wickedness and punishing righteousness is inviting God’s judgment,” Scarborough told Hotze.
Hotze described Scarborough as an active leader of the modern-day Black Robe Regiment, who seeks to fight secularist forces trying to establish a communist society in America. The Black Robe Regiment referred to the influential clergymen who promoted American independence and supported the military struggle against Britain in the 18th century.
According to Hotze, many pastors these days do not possess the testicular fortitude, the biblical conviction and the boldness to stand up and oppose the tyrannical civil government leaders. But Hotze noted that his guest has challenged members of his congregation to get involved and bring the Word of God into government. Scarborough’s group has also encouraged pastors in Texas and other states to mobilize their congregations into voting.
For his part, Scarborough admitted that his return to the pulpit was a public repentance for earlier keeping his church members from being involved in and overreacting against politics.

“I released our people to run for public office. I encouraged them to run. I preached on a passage that talks about elected officials being appointed by God and ministers to rebuke evil and reward righteousness,” he said. “So, I began urging our people running for city council.”
Christians need to stand up against people promoting ungodly standards
Hotze pointed out that Christians have a responsibility to stand up against those who promote ungodly standards that are leading to the destruction of society and the souls of people. He lauded Scarborough for being a courageous Christian patriot who is willing to take on the authorities participating in the evil going on in the world and recruit godly men and women to take a stand and run for public office.
In response to a question from Hotze, Scarborough mentioned that there were many hirelings out of the 20,000 pastors he and his group worked with. He noted that those who succumbed to the fat checks easily fell into temptations, while those who were truly called stood up and bucked the trend.
God has never needed a majority, Scarborough said, and all He has ever needed is a dedicated minority. Scarborough added that God is going to anoint and honor those who honor Him.
“People have seen behind the curtain. They saw what was being taught in their schools. They said, ‘No, we don’t want our kids having it’ and parents started rising up. We’ve seen the effects of this unholy and ungodly approach to governance where all the boundaries are removed,” Scarborough stated.
He said America may soon witness the third Great Awakening that Christians have been praying for and God may give the nation another chance to get things right.
