Marriage Policy Preservation

This is a specific look at the Scriptures that speak to marriage, especially as would be relevant to a discussion of public policy.

From Genesis to Revelation, marriage is a picture of our relationship with God.

Genesis 2
[18] And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”

For Evangelicals Defending Freedom

Daniel Darling is my friend and pastor for a family member in the Chicago area, and he has called on evangelicals to speak up about guns. He and I have engaged on this issue before. He publicly raises some good points and other points worth a response, so I thought I would answer his call here.

"The Bible doesn’t clearly express an opinion on the possession of guns, but many evangelicals defend the unlimited distribution of firearms with the same fervor that they defend biblical orthodoxy."

Somewhat to my surprise, an opportunity to "defend biblical orthodoxy" came along sooner than expected, even since I read his recent year-ending post.

The Two Biblical Purposes of Government

There are two sections of the New Testament that both speak clearly and directly to the two purposes of government, and both can also easily be misused.

This post is an attempt to give clarity to these passages, the purposes of government, and how Christians should respond to governments that do and do not stay within these purposes.
