Making The Connection

As Christian citizens living in a land that God has bestowed liberty unlike no other in history, there is a crucial need for us to get a clear understanding of the United States Constitution and American Government. The times in which we live make it imperative that we understand how our government is supposed to function under the Federal Constitution. The Bible commands us to take “every thought captive to obey Christ (2 Cor 10:5).

Unfortunately, for far too many Christians today, the last thing they think about when it comes to spiritual things is their government and the United States Constitution. A proper understanding of the Establishment and Free Exercise clauses is something every American Christian should seek to have in order to protect these special God given liberties. In order for us to develop our Christian Worldview, it is imperative for us to understand the truth about history and make the Biblical connection to the truths about limited government under the Rule of Law (United States Constitution).

Lets strive to understand this subject from a Biblical Worldview in order to bring Glory to God with our thoughts and actions concerning our government. To that end, I hope to begin posting short essays and blogs pertaining to thinking biblically not only about government and the Constitution but also about a wide range of issues.

  1. The Founders had much to say about how our liberty was dependent upon a Christian worldview. Shaeffer's coining of the term "worldview" was still a couple centuries in the future, but they knew the concept.

    Looking forward to reading your exposition of this subject.
