Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.8

Here I’m going to summarize theologian John Frame’s views on Christianity and government.

It’s helpful to recognize that a respected theologian shares the basics of the view I’m advocating and to see how he derives his view from Scripture. His discussion makes a good starting point to orient us to what Scripture says on the issue.

Social Justice and Scripture: Untie the Knot Pt.20

In this final article of the series I want to address a question I brought up near the beginning: Why am I, a worship leader, so concerned about this issue?

If I’ve been right in my preceding arguments, the answer is clear. I care about my society. I care about the world I live in and the world I leave to my son. I work as a leader in a church because I want people to see God and his righteous ways. Sometimes that means taking an unpopular stand.

Christianity and ISIS: Toward a Better World Pt. 5

America has not responded to ISIS.

This moral failure proceeds from America’s inability to recognize the objectivity of morality. Our response amounts to the conclusion: there is no right response, or if there be a right response, there is no way to know it.

Drawing Lines on Islam

A logic puzzle:

What would you think if someone told you the following?

  1. I follow the Koran.
  2. The Koran tells me to lie, cheat, steal and kill in order to conquer you.
  3. I don’t want to do any of that.

What is the status of such a claim?

What Can Anyone Do?

Looking at the moral state of our society, I groan: “What can anyone do?”

Like the kings in the days of Israel and Judah, we have more wicked rulers than good ones. Even our good rulers never manage to remove the “high places” of child sacrifice, because the hearts of the people are wicked.

Our country’s greatest wickedness is its treatment of unborn children.

In the past two weeks it has come to light that Planned Parenthood sells the parts of aborted babies for around $300 a piece. The third video came out July 28th, with more to follow, apparently at weekly intervals for the next two months.

I’ve followed this story and worked to make it known. I’ve called others to do the same.
