GUESTS:

You might recognize the topic of this week’s show as a slight variation of our motto of The Christian Worldview: “Think Biblically, Live Accordingly.” But isn’t that what the Christian life should be about – understanding any given issue as Christ would and then acting in accordance with that truth?

The issue before Christians right now is the 2008 federal, state, and local elections that take place on Tuesday, November 4th. Never before have I seen our country at such a tipping point (as Daniel Denninger points out in this article). Democrat Barack Obama has Read more

Must Evangelicals Dirty Their Hands In Politics – Part 2

[Continued from last week. If you missed Part 1, you can read it here.]

Suddenly, politics didn’t seem so “this worldly” to me any more. I started to make the heavenly connections and began to see how politics was really an important means to an end – God’s end – in this case, the protection of innocent human life.

I thought, “What were Christians doing leading up to that awful Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973?” Someone had obviously been asleep at the switch. As Edmund Burke rightly observed, “All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.” Now the damage of Roe v. Wade had to be undone. Sure, prayer would be needed and changed hearts would be nice; that’s where the gospel comes in. But, ultimately, it would take political action to accomplish the task. Read more

Reflections on the Republican Convention

LISTEN NOW:

The last two weeks in politics were something to behold as the Democrats and Republicans each held their national conventions. Living here in Minnesota, I attended the Republican National Convention all four days and saw the speeches, the fundraisers, the media punditry. I will tell you all about it on the program this weekend and give some behind the scenes stories as well.

Perhaps the biggest story of all has been the sniping of vice presidential nominee, Governor Sarah Palin. “She doesn’t have enough experience to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.” “She shouldn’t be juggling a high-powered career with mothering five children, including a baby with Down Syndrome.” And from some Christian circles, “Should a woman be exercising leadership over men?

Pass the hot potato! Tune in this weekend to The Christian Worldview as we discuss all this and more in our effort to be “biblically correct, not politically correct.”

Why Conservatism is Most Christian

LISTEN NOW:

The Democrats anointed their messiah last night at the Democrat National Convention in Denver.

Having heard from Michelle Obama on Monday, Sen. Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, former President Bill Clinton and vice presidential running mate Joe Biden on Wednesday, the “transcendent” and “transformational” candidate, Sen. Barack Obama, spoke to a packed stadium of 85,000 people last night about how he will “change” America.

He’s correct, he will change America — just not in ways that Christians should want.

Meanwhile, the Republican National Convention starts Monday here in St. Paul, Minnesota where Sen. John McCain will make the case that he would be the best choice for president.

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we’ll focus on politics — why conservatism is most Christian, the faith of the candidates, and whether McCain’s vice presidential choice is a good one.

The Rick Warren Forum: McCain and Obama in Their Own Words

LISTEN NOW:

Say what you will about super-pastor Rick Warren, but he certainly provided us an excellent and important look last Saturday into the minds and hearts of the two major candidates for president, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama.

What the mainstream media consistently fails to do in their debates in both format and questioning, Rick Warren did in the simplest of ways — just sit down one on one with each candidate for an hour and ask questions that regular Americans want to ask. Some are considering this a turning point in the 2008 election.

If you didn’t see the forum, you can watch it here or read the transcripts here.

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, you won’t want to miss sound bite highlights from the forum and analysis of the candidates responses.
