The Truth About America’s History

Faith and Politics

One of the greatest influences in the founding of this nation and throughout its history has been the Bible. If you don’t agree, listen to some of these truths historian David Barton shared at Living Word the weekend of October 20–21. Read More…

Faith, Economics, and Foreign Policy

Faith and Politics

One single matter perhaps most negatively endangers our economy right now in America: the national debt.

The national debt has grown to a figure that is almost intellectually incomprehensible. This astronomical debt is not a sin, but it puts us in a very difficult position. Proverbs 22:7 says that “the borrower is servant to the lender.” Not only are we servant to someone other than God, but we are not able to obey Romans 13:8, which says we are to “owe no man anything, but to love one another.” “In debt” is not a good place to be.

Faith and the Moral Foundation of America

Faith and Politics

Two pillars of America’s moral foundation are currently under attack: the right to life and the definition of marriage. If we’re going to continue in God’s blessing as a nation, our society cannot tamper with these two things.

Let me quickly address the first one. The most basic inalienable human right granted by God and our constitution is the right to life. When somebody takes another’s life, they have robbed them of the most precious thing of all—the opportunity to experience God’s destiny for them. In addition to that, the Bible makes it clear that life begins at conception. That being said, if you want to vote scripturally, the issue of abortion needs to be taken into high consideration when voting at the polls. Read More…
