Politics and the Gospel

I was visiting Fellowship Greenville a few weeks back and the “teaching” hit home with me: Politics and the Gospel. Charlie Boyd is one of my favorites and I enjoy hearing him when I can be away from my home at Christ Church Episcopal.  I have talked about many times over the past couple of years how we live in very trying times. I have never witnessed such divisiveness….such anger…there is no civility in our political process anymore.  What do we do???   This has been especially so these past couple of weeks as we have witnessed the modern day crucifying of Judge Brett Kavanaugh….and his family(I say his family because last week he told the story of his young daughter suggesting prayer for his accuser ) and now the left is making fun of her…for praying.

The mixing of politics and church has long been debated as to the appropriate level to which one should involve each of these important parts of our lives. I have read Romans in the past, but not until I listened to Charlie did I truly have clarity of the role the Gospel plays in our political lives.  This is the statement that got my attention: “if we do not live the Gospel in our politics then we won’t live it effectively in the other areas of our lives.” BINGO!!  Read Romans 13:1-8 when you have a minute. Better yet watch Charlie Boyd teach this lesson….only after you listen to my segment below as I talked about this topic on my show recently.

Senator Lindsey Graham on Upstate Live.

US Senator Lindsey Graham joined me for a few minutes to talk about the death of his friend and colleague, John McCain; how his office will be working with FEMA to assist any damage to SC from hurricane Florence; how we may reintroduce civility to the political process; his thoughts on the Trump administration and ……how he doesn’t leave home without his My Pillow!!![podcast src=”https://html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/7044311/height/90/theme/custom/autoplay/no/autonext/no/thumbnail/yes/preload/no/no_addthis/no/direction/forward/render-playlist/no/custom-color/4178a3/” height=”90″ width=”100%” placement=”bottom” theme=”custom”]

Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him.

Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls them racists, white supremacists and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right “by any means necessary.”

Through stunning historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, Death of a Nationcuts through progressive big lies to expose hidden history and explosive truths.

Lincoln united his party and saved America from the Democrats for the first time. Can Trump—and we—come together and save America for the second time?
