On Political Strategy: 3 Reasons Evil Has Conquered

Chess.

[This was published in June 2016, but I believe analysis continues to be relevant]

In light of the news that David French may be running as an independent in order to weaken Trump, many conservative voters are now asking,

Does it matter?
Should I get on board?
Shouldn’t I support the candidate who is second worst?
What about the Supreme Court?
What about practicality?

Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.13

What of “socialism” in the Bible?

Many Christians (including professors, pastors, and leaders) reason that since God desires us to do good toward others, the government should step in to provide for those whose needs are not met.

To judge between people who claim wrong has been done and to marshal the people in times of war.

“Religious Liberty” — A Different Take

Al Mohler recently published an article at the Southern Blog called “The moral revolution threatens religious liberty.

Mohler is a noted evangelical leader and the president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He considers “religious liberty” important. His article comes only a week after a previous one at his blog, entitled “Religious Liberty vs. Erotic Liberty—Religious Liberty Is Losing.”

Mohler’s explanation of “religious liberty” bears close study.
