Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.9

Previously we looked at John Frame’s scriptural argument that government should offer protection from theft, not be an agent of redistribution.

I agree with this vision of justice. Scripture doesn’t support the modern idea of “social justice.”

How to be a Republican in Exile

A Trump presidency? There is little chance of that.

Look at the data: Hillary Clinton will surely defeat him. But what does it say about the Republican Party that Donald Trump was ever able to take the lead?

Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.5

How does a government reduce force in human life? There are two main ways: a legal system (the legislature and the law courts), and a defense system (the police and the military).

Your Vote Is Your Support

Does God care who we choose to *support* with our voting power?
Of course He does.

Does God give guidance?
Of a general kind.

There’s enough in Scripture to teach us not to lend support to any person we know to be monstrously evil.

Have you observed Donald Trump’s words and deeds? Any of these 11 verses from just one chapter in Proverbs would disqualify Trump.

He’s not worthy of the support that your vote signifies.
