Developing a Christian Worldview Part 2 by GKC

Whoever said that politics and religion don’t mix must not know anything about either of them.

Politics and religion are inextricably linked because one is foundational, and the other resultant. As the oft-repeated Andrew Breitbart line goes, “Politics is downstream from culture,” and “culture” starts with the “cult” or “worship.” Politics is an expression of your worldview, and your religion is your worldview.

As Wisconsin reels from riots following the viral shooting of Jacob Blake; media, politicians, celebrities, activists, and athletes have not missed an opportunity to condemn America all over again. Major sports have canceled their activities in one big virtue signal, coming to their own conclusion that the officers involved are guilty of wrongdoing before the facts come to light

The story they pitch is the same, “Police kill black people for no reason.” They offer up a new holy martyr on the mantel Social Justice as means to allow Marxist-Leftist policy creep.

Developing a Christian Worldview: Part 1 by GKC

I received a request a couple of weeks ago to talk about “Jesus and Politics,” namely, what sort of politics we ought to take from Jesus’ teaching. It’s a good question, but a tricky one – it being all too easy to topple over the side of a sound argument and crash into the abyss of self-delusion and nonsense. So how do we answer this question?

With a bit of metaphor and philosophy, some straight-talk, and an honest, real-world take.

Since its conception, Black Lives Matter (BLM) has caused a severe division in the American political landscape for various reasons. BLM was founded in 2013 as a result of the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin. BLM viewed this verdict as injustice and demanded societal reforms. Subsequent high-profile black deaths in the years following led to more and more protesting by BLM.

Because of BLM’s media attention, this has led to certain confusions and myths pertaining to BLM to arise. Most of these confusions and myths relate to what BLM actually is. The most prevalent myth of them all is that BLM is just an innocent slogan fighting for black rights. Because of this, there is a significant pushback against BLM.
