The Altar Call
Pulpit of the Marketplace   


I'm always fascinated about the phrase, "wall of separation of church and state." My fascination was enhanced while working with the U.S. Census mobilizing the faith-based community in southeast Michigan. I came to realize that the majority of people are clueless separation of church and state business oh break out showers group ministriesabout what all this means. The murkiness of the statement confuses so many and our society tosses these words around without full comprehension of their meaning.


It is interesting these words do not appear in our Constitution, Amendments or the Bill of Rights. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." I do believe that when the First Amendment of 1791 was written, those in power were making sure that government could not establish a universal religion that had to be practiced by every American and empowered every citizen with the right to worship, speak and assemble without fear of punitive consequences.


The astounding thing about the First Amendment is that many believers do not understand the inherent freedoms it entails. What has transpired is that the phrase, that is not written, has become the governing force that drives them in their daily life. I remember recanting to colleagues that when I walked through those doors my faith waltzed in with me. I could not be sawed in half and the most important part of my being left outside of the door, which is my faith.


This is not to say that we are not to adhere to the laws of the land as well as those that are in authority, but it does mean that we need to be acutely aware of our rights as a citizen of the United States. Even more, we need to know our rights that are inherent in the Word of God as well.


The landscape of the mission field is embracing the marketplace as never before. You see, there are many people whom we come in contact with every day who may never be imprisoned, live in a shelter or on the streets. Yet, they are crying out for answers as they seek a deeper meaning of life and seek to establish intimacy with God in an uncertain world and economic climate.


The marketplace for years has been like this forbidden terrain that although we spend the bulk of our waking hours there, we have not conquered. Yet it is the marketplace that takes us into another realm of influence and where the wealth transference takes place for us to fulfill our Kingdom mandate.


Understanding our rights and freedoms inherent in the First Amendment not only liberates us, but our children as well. Then we are able to educate, equip and empower our children with the wisdom and knowledge they need. Prayer was taken out of the schools, but when we empower our children prayer can go back into those same schools.


Our altars, for marketplace change-agents, have transformed into our work environments. Many are not slated to stand behind a pulpit, but to pull people out of the pit one job at a time. This means breaking out of a mindset promulgated from the premise of the wall of separation of church and state that has kept believers from exercising their liberties and freedoms. We have a responsibility to fulfill the mandate of the great commission, but we also have to be equipped to wisely integrate that dichotomy of responsibility with worship and work.


Oh Break Out's goal is to equip and educate marketplace change-agents with solid biblical principles for spiritual, professional, cultural and personal empowerment in expanding their sphere of influence. It provides a synergistic spirit-fueled atmosphere that encourages relationship development for further spiritual growth and business opportunities. In essence, it is equipping you to seamlessly integrate spirituality into the reality of the marketplace.


Register for the Oh Break Out Retreat Experience scheduled for November 30-December 1, 2012. Register before November 15th for $55. When five people register at the same time, receive the sixth registration free.

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matt 28:19-20 (KJV)


Doing your work readily, as to the Lord, and not to men: In the knowledge that for every good thing anyone does, he will have his reward from the Lord, If he is a servant or if he is free. Eph 6:7-8 (BBE)


Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. Prov 22:29 (KJV)


With wisdom a house is built. With understanding it is established. With knowledge its rooms are filled with every kind of riches, both precious and pleasant. Prov 24:3-4 (GW)


I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, Eph 4:1 (KJV)


Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; Isaiah 54:2 (KJV)


See, I am doing a new thing; now it is starting; will you not take note of it? I will even make a way in the waste land, and rivers in the dry country. Isaiah 43:19 (BBE)


When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. Prov 29:2 (KJV)


Every person should obey the government in power. No government would exist if it hadn't been established by God. The governments which exist have been put in place by God. Romans 13:1 (GW)


Place yourselves under the authority of human governments to please the Lord. Obey the emperor. He holds the highest position of authority. Also obey governors. They are people the emperor has sent to punish those who do wrong and to praise those who do right. 1 Peter 2:13-14 (GW)


Make clear to them that they are to put themselves under rulers and authorities, to do what they are ordered, to be ready for every good work, Titus 3:1 (BBE)





I have lacked wisdom long enough about the wall of separation of church and state. I know that You have a mandate for me to go in to all the world and that includes the marketplace. You have equipped me to sit at my desk that has become the altar in which I pull people out of the pit who may otherwise not have an encounter with You. Bless me to represent you well as a marketplace change-agent for the Kingdom of God.
