Why I’m taking the ‘Bullseye Challenge’

My good friend Larry Tomczak has been serving God on the frontlines against the anti-Christian left for over four decades. He’s a best-selling author and, I’m proud to say, a contributor to BarbWire.com. Larry has introduced a fantastic new project (and resource), along with his latest book titled, “Bullseye: Becoming an Informed Influencer in Today’s Changing Culture.”

Together with this must-read book, Larry asks that readers take what he calls the “Bullseye Challenge.” The challenge simply asks for “15 minutes for 30 days so you’ll hit the mark on the culture’s controversial issues.”

I frequently have concerned believers contact me and share that they feel helpless as we watch our nation’s foundational and God-centered pillars crumbling around us. They recognize that we, as a culture, are in a death spiral and desperately want to play a role in helping spur America back to her spiritual and cultural origins.

To that end, I can recommend no better resource than the Bullseye Challenge. In this short video, our mutual friend and fellow BarbWire columnist and brother in Christ, Dr. Michael Brown, summarizes Larry’s amazing project:

Here’s more on how it works:

Investing 15 minutes for 30 days, individuals can hit the mark by understanding and communicating confidently on the controversial issues of our day. This innovative approach consists of three steps: review a video for three minutes; read an article for 10 minutes; then, reflect and pray for two minutes. In a compelling and enjoyable manner, Larry addresses these hot button issues:

  • Social justice
  • same-sex marriage
  • racial inequality
  • Islam
  • legalizing marijuana
  • transgenderism
  • atheism
  • living together
  • the apocalypse
  • divorce
  • capital punishment
  • abortion
  • affairs
  • immigration
  • AIDS and STDs
  • suicide
  • masturbation
  • gay Christians
  • sexting
  • death with dignity and more.

Larry’s passion is for everyone to know the truth and then confidently communicate it with charity and clarity. In a national survey, 67% of conservative Christians said they want their church to provide them with more information – more biblical teachings – about the issues that are so important in an election. Additionally, Barna Research revealed that 90% of Christian leaders believe the Bible addresses most of today’s controversial issues, yet only 10% said they were willing to address them! Here is a resource to supply adults and youth and pastors and everyone with what they need to be equipped and engaged in making a difference today. Larry Tomczak has given us a gift as well as a secret weapon to become confident communicators and change agents in today’s confusing world. He’s calling everyone concerned about our future to take the 30 day Bullseye challenge to change our lives and our nation.

That’s it. And I second Larry’s call. Take the Bullseye Challenge. I am.
