In 2008, more people of faith voted for Barack Obama than for any other Democrat in modern history. They cited concern for the environment, a change in leadership tone, hope for a fresh start in foreign relations, a different approach to reduce abortions, etc. It’s 2012. What about results?
I thought this classic moment from the Democratic National Convention 2012 needed a soundtrack. Especially at the end.
Conservative Christians get a bad rap nowadays. We’re seen as reactionary, irrelevant, closed-minded, one issue voters. A new generation of believers has rebelled against the perceived excesses and hypocrisy of their parents and has embraced environmentalism and so-called social justice. The raw political power of the Religious Right, once a driving force for a sought-after voting bloc, now lies squandered.
In Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It’s Too Late, James Robison and Jay Richards explore the fundamentals not just of a political movement, but of a world view. Through this monumental work, Robison and Richards show that those of us who cling to a conservative philosophy of government while living a life of faith are not convenient pawns of a political party as the Left would suggest. To the contrary, when examined through a Biblical lens, being both culturally conservative and fiscally responsible are indivisible.
This book, perhaps combined with the great Politics According to the Bible by Wayne Grudem, would work beautifully as a homeschool resource for a government course. That’s what we’re doing in our house!
