We don’t live under a king or a Caesar. Our governing document is the Constitution. We have the freedom to vote civil officials out of office. We can petition the government for a redress of grievances. The Ninth and Tenth Amendments limit the national government.
The fact that pastors have the freedom to worship, preach, publish, assemble, and petition the government for a redress of grievances (the First Amendment to the Constitution) is because Christians addressed “political and social structures.”
The reasons Christians should be involved in politics is to lessen the impact that civil government has on so many areas of life. You can’t do that without getting involved in politics. While many Christians don’t believe in being involved in politics, politics is always involved in them.
There’s a great deal of sloppy thinking going on about human sexuality. Many Christians have capitulated on the topic of same-sex sexuality. They’ve given into the premise that God’s Word does not disapprove of such relationships. Students at some Christian colleges are the worst offenders. Students and alumni at Taylor
The burden of proof is on rebuilt-temple advocates to come up with one verse that unequivocally states that a rebuilt temple is required to fulfill some end-time prophetic program since they admit that “There are no Bible verses that say, ‘There is going to be a third temple.’”
If Christians don’t engage the culture at every level — politics included — then they will be excluded from every area of life. Get busy now or forever hold your peace when the iron boot of the State and social forces stomp on your face forever.
The following article is from Jerry Newcombe who is the on-air host/senior producer for D. James Kennedy Ministries. Thirty years ago, the good guys won the Cold War, yet today we have a frontrunner candidate for president, Bernie Sanders, who is an out-of-the closet socialist. He loved the old Soviet
Politics gets stranger and stranger. Who would have thought that same-sex sexuality would become a political selling point? But it has. Chicago just elected a lesbian mayor. South Bend, Indiana, elected Pete Buttigieg who is married to a man. “My marriage to Chasten,” Buttigieg said in a speech at LGBTQ
There has been considerable debate over the best way to interpret the three-days and three-nights language of Matthew 12:40, either as three 24-hour days of exactly 72 hours or parts of three days and three nights. Because you can’t get three full days if the count begins on Friday, some interpreters
Today’s academic institutions are shutting out competing worldviews. Professors who question evolution will not receive tenure and will most likely be dismissed. Don’t even think about getting hired if you oppose abortion and don’t bow before the altar of sexual and gender dysmorphia. Senate Democrats are opposing lawyers who are
Any document can be made to say anything if a word or phrase is taken out of context. Ripped from its context, “judge not” (Matt. 7:1) means something different from the point Jesus was making in the next verse (7:2) and other verses (John 7:24). The apostle Paul had no
The following article is from the companion book that will go along with the “God and Governments” video series I just completed “Man … is certainly descended from some ape-like creature…. [H]e may not have been a social animal, and yet have lived with several wives, like the gorilla; for
Most of us have heard of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), about a naïve Senator who ends up taking on the establishment. It’s a good film. It stars Jimmy Stewart and Jean Arthur. It’s one of AMC’s Top 100 films. It was not popular with the political establishment crowd
The Hollywood Left is on the move again trying to impose their immorality on the rest of us by trying to blackmail the people of Georgia by threatening to pull the film industry out of the state because Georgia has passed the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Over the past decade, Georgia
Jesus said, “Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself shall not stand” (Matthew 12:25). “Just preach the gospel.” How many times have you heard pastors and critics of social and political action scold Christians concerned about the moral direction the church
The Bible tells us that the world is a rational place in which to live. The world runs by fixed and predictable laws. This is why it can be studied, investigated, and analyzed with the assurance that what’s true today will be true tomorrow. Is it any wonder that science, music, and the
What you don’t know can kill you, and in the case of ignorance about our nation’s founding document, it can turn you into a slave to the State. The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution because the states were not satisfied with the claim that the Constitution was
What is the ‘Deep State’? It’s said to be a government within a government, not elected, but just there, always writing rules, subverting criticism, and never letting the opposition gain a foothold. A president is restricted to eight-years. Members of Congress can be thrown out of office at the ballot
