Radical environmentalism. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Socialist congresswoman from New York, proposed the framework for a “Green New Deal” saying,
“Today is the day that we truly embark on a comprehensive agenda of economic, social, and racial justice in the United States.”
God told man to “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:28
Wise stewardship of creation is God’s call, not using environmental scaremongering to gain massive government control over your life.
Life is Best. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
David says about God in Psalm 139, “For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.” What is abortion? The intentional killing of a human being that God formed in the womb.
Ever wonder why abortion is the most revered sacrament of the Left, arousing such zealousness? Because it combines into one issue fallen mankind’s rebellion against God in favor or personal and moral autonomy.
Christians, we need to continue to stand against the injustice being perpetrated against the most innocent and defenseless of God’s creation.
Reparations for slavery? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Remember Zaccheus, a hated Jewish tax collector, who were known for over-charging? But then he met and believed in Jesus, saying, “Behold, Lord, half of my possessions I will give to the poor, and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will give back four times as much.”
That is biblical restitution—voluntary repayment to those directly harmed. Contrast that to the call for slavery reparations today that would compel those who didn’t commit injustice to pay those who weren’t directly harmed, which only fosters entitlement and resentment.
Thinking biblically about race. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a national holiday this week that commemorates Dr. King’s impact on civil rights, particularly for blacks.
A half century after Dr. King, the issue of race is still contentious in society and the church. Because resentment resides in the heart, ethnic divides can never be bridged through laws, quotas, reparations, or shaming.
Jesus never focused on ethnic divisions but rather proclaimed repentance and faith in Himself, which transforms the heart and the treatment of others. As the Bible says: believers “are all one in Christ Jesus.”
