TCW Minute: Socialism in the Country and Church (Week of May 13, 2019)

2019-05-17T12:46:06-05:00May 17, 2019|

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 […]

TCW Minute: Pete Buttigieg and a False Gospel (Week of April 15, 2019)

2019-04-20T22:37:42-05:00Apr 15, 2019|

Pete Buttigieg and a false gospel.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

A relatively unknown 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana named Pete Buttigieg is running third in the Democrat nomination for president.

Buttigieg is a Harvard graduate, Rhodes Scholar, and U.S. Navy veteran.

He is also a “married homosexual” who speaks frequently of his progressive Christian faith, asserting the gospel is about helping the poor, the stranger, the hurting.

That’s what the Bible calls […]

TOPIC: How the Popularity of Mayor Pete Buttigieg Reflects the Worldview Transformation of America

Guest: Greg Gilbert, Senior Pastor, Third Avenue Baptist Church

I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.  Galatians 1:6-7

Consider for a moment that a relatively unknown 37-year-old mayor of […]

TCW Minute: Lurch to the Left (Week of Feb. 18, 2019)

2019-02-22T11:02:32-06:00Feb 22, 2019|

Lurch to the left.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

If conservative Christians thought President Obama had a leftist worldview, the new faces of the Democrat Party—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Cory Booker, and others—are even more so.

Now, killing a baby during or after birth is openly supported, restructuring our entire society to slow climate change is a necessity, and affirming homosexuality and transgenderism.

The prophet Isaiah said, “Woe to those who […]

TCW Minute: Lessons from the Kavanaugh Nomination (Week of Oct. 8, 2018)

2018-10-08T14:03:34-05:00Oct 08, 2018|

Lessons from the Kavanaugh nomination.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

After weeks of drama, including accusations of sexual assault, protests, and non-stop media coverage, the Senate narrowly voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

There are many lessons here.  One is that elections matter.  Imagine what kind of judge Hillary Clinton would have nominated had she been president.  Consider Kavanaugh’s chances of confirmation if Republicans hadn’t held a slight majority […]

TCW Minute: The Power of Accusation (Week of Oct. 1, 2018)

2018-10-04T16:55:34-05:00Oct 01, 2018|

The power of accusation.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

According to those who work with him, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to fill the Supreme Court vacancy, has lived an upstanding life.  But very late in the confirmation process, an accusation was brought forward that Kavanaugh, 36 years ago when he was 17, sexually groped a 15-year-old girl.

Even without corroborating evidence, the damage has been done to his reputation.

Revelation 12 […]

TCW Minute: Is President Trump Making America Great? (Week of Sept. 24, 2018)

2018-09-25T12:53:19-05:00Sep 24, 2018|

Is President Trump making America great?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Great nations typically have a strong military, prosperous economy, and domestic security and equity.

President Trump has strengthened America in many of these categories.  But Christians should pray for him to set a better moral and interpersonal example.

Psalm 2 says: “Take warning, O judges of the earth. Worship the Lord with reverence … Do homage to the Son, that He not […]

TOPIC: Is Trump Making America Great?

2018-09-22T10:25:23-05:00Sep 22, 2018|

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.  Proverbs 14:34

Back in August, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo stated, ”We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.”

This is the sentiment of many on the political left, who view America as historically and structurally racist against blacks, sexist against women, intolerant toward Muslims and other non-Christians, bigoted toward homosexuals and transgenders, and not nearly helpful enough to […]

TCW Minute: Independence Day and Socialism (Week of July 2, 2018)

2018-07-06T20:01:17-05:00Jul 02, 2018|

Why the demand for socialism?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Independence Day is this week, commemorating the US colonies signing the Declaration of Independence from the British Empire.  Our Founders believed in limited government and individual freedoms.

Today there is a growing demand for the opposite—socialism.  The dictionary defines socialism as, “In Marxist theory, a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.”  Almost half of Millennials […]

Christians and Government: When to Submit, When to Resist

2016-10-26T10:14:40-05:00Aug 01, 2015|

Guest: Gregg Frazer, author, The Religious Beliefs of America’s Founders

Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. 1 Peter 2:13-14[…]
