FACT Report: Why History Is Important

Karl Marx once said, “A people without a heritage are easily persuaded.” And no doubt many in politics and media now want to take advantage of what we’ve not been taught about our nation’s history or the misinformation we’ve been fed to “persuade” us to their way of thinking and to the policies they want to impose on us.

But perhaps the most important bit of history that we now tend to forget or deny is this: “In the beginning, God.” When we forget this, we can be easily manipulated by those who, in place of the real God, want to lord it over us for their glory.

That’s why we commend to you an excellent documentary called Is Genesis History? because if Genesis is not history, then we can be persuaded to accept just about anything.

FACT Report: Could Tennessee’s Legislature Lurch Left?

Next year’s election cycle for the Tennessee Legislature will be dominated by a large number of Republican primaries. And Tennessee Thrives may be a hidden force behind the election of more moderate, establishment Republicans.

Tennessee Thrives is a group of Tennessee businesses that want to avoid an LGBT boycott of our state at all cost. It was launched by Freedom for All Americans, a national group dedicated to advancing the LGBT agenda and killing religious liberty measures. Many of those businesses’ executives have become a strong lobbying force in their respective states.

But 2018 will be the first election cycle for groups like Tennessee Thrives. What will they do? Don’t be surprised if those executives now begin funding moderates who will abandon social conservatives. If Tennessee’s Legislature lurches to the left, you may have just learned why.

FACT Report: The Cure for a Fractured Society

Increasingly, society is breaking down into factions, and, consequently, some of them turn to civil government to force others to engage with them, as LGBT activists are doing with wedding vendors.

But when it came to whether individuals would engage in relationships with others, commercial or otherwise, our Founding Fathers thought liberty was required. They knew that when civil government assumes the power to mandate individual interactions, liberty is lost. And that, in turn, leads to factions—those who fear government-mandated interactions band together to protect themselves from those who may band together to mandate those interactions.

Ironically, if we want to mitigate the divisions in our country, perhaps we should be more concerned with how factions will use the coercive power of civil government than with what a vendor will do with his or her liberty.

FACT Report: New Biblical Worldview Seminar, Restoring the Vision

What is the point of being a Christian? What are we are “saved” for? Is Christianity about more than piety in this life and heaven later?

FACT’s president, David Fowler, grappled with these questions at a crisis point in his life. And on November 11th, at FACT’s Restoring the Vision seminar, he will share the foundational scriptural principles that changed his worldview and altered the course of his life.

Restoring the Vision will not only give you the tools you need to see the world through a biblical lens, but also help you discover how your life fits into the overarching purpose of God for His creation.

Restoring the Vision will be at the Nashville School of Law on the morning of November 11th. Register for Restoring the Vision here.

FACT Report: Mixing Politics and Religion

A Christian recently emailed us this question, “Do we want the legislature enforcing our faith-based views of how we live?”

It’s a great question because historically some ugly situations have arisen when civil government tried to control the ecclesiastical structures of the church and various ecclesiastical structures tried to control civil government.

But can we really keep God out of government? This Christian had a view about God, namely that God was irrelevant to civil government. That was the view of God he thought should inform our politics. So, it is not that this person really wants all of us to leave our views about God and religion out of government; he just wants to exclude those views that are different from his.

Remember this the next time someone tells you not to mix politics and religion.
