The “Christian Persecution Act”. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
One Christian professor says about the Equality Act: “It is the most dangerous bill to freedom of speech and the free exercise of religion that has ever been proposed on a national level.”
The Equality Act adds “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to federal non-discrimination law. What you can’t do based on another’s ethnicity would be the same for homosexuality and transgenderism.
The Equality Act has already passed the Democrat-majority US House. If it becomes law, Christians will be prosecuted for obeying God’s word.
Remember what the Bible says, “even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed” (1 Peter 3:14).
What has changed the country and the church? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Over the last many decades, our country has cast off biblical foundations in favor of humanistic values. And the evangelical church, instead of obeying the call to be separate from the world, has become more like it.
Satan and our sin nature are always at work, but where that work has been most effective is through higher education, whether at secular or Christian colleges, and even seminaries, when an orthodox understanding of Scripture is undermined.
Truly does the Bible say: Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 1 Corinthians 1:20
Socialism in the country and the church. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Socialism is a worldview which believes a bigger government ordering every aspect of life will result in a better, more equitable society.
And it’s rising in popularity, with policies such as universal health care, universal basic income, government-controlled public education, free college, open borders, redefining of marriage and morality, and social justice.
When the latter enters the church, the gospel is quickly neglected.
Truly does the Bible say, There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. (Proverbs 14:12)
Only two religions. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Jewish radio host Dennis Prager and Christian pastor Alistair Begg recently took part in an event to discuss theological issues.
Their interchange made clear that all religions, including some Christian ones, are based on man earning favor through doing works. Only biblical Christianity is based on Christ earning favor for us through His work on the cross.
It’s the difference that makes all the difference.
Romans 4 says, Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due. But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness. Romans 4:4-5a
