Welcome to The Word on Politics! As this name implies, the purpose of this blog is to shine the light of God’s Word into the political arena, upon culture at large, and upon contemporary geo-political trends. Of God’s Word, the Scripture, Psalm 119:105 declares, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” The light of Scripture is not designed to be confined exclusively to spiritual or ecclesiastical matters. The Bible was inspired and written in such a way that it speaks to every area of life, including matters taking place outside the four walls of the church. Because the Bible speaks authoritatively about government, family, and morality, etc…the purpose of this blog is to let the Bible speak to the great moral, social, and political issues of our day. Many of these “culture war” issues are currently being fought in the political arena. This blog will regularly allow the Bible to speak to these matters.
I was greatly blessed and encouraged while in Duluth, Minnesota through my participation at the Duluth Bible Church Fall Conference. The hospitality and spiritual receptiveness of those folks was nothing short of overwhelming. Also, I was consistently validated and reinforced by the Scripture and the Holy Spirit as He used the various speakers to affirm me in my deeply held conviction that the grace perspective is the best way of viewing and teaching the Bible. Here is my sermon from the conference in its entirety. I hope you are blessed by it.
