Who Is Your Legislator Loyal To?

As this two-year cycle of Tennessee’s Legislature winds down, social conservatives need to understand something: The natural tendency of political parties in the majority is to make sure they stay in the majority.

Over the last two years, that’s been done by party leaders making sure their party members don’t have to vote on particularly tough political issues. And right now, that’s been legislation that might cause an economic boycott by groups like the Human Rights Campaign. That is why, for the last two years, bills that would limit the LGBT movement weren’t even moved or seconded, let alone voted on.

So, when a candidate this fall says to you that he or she is a social conservative, make sure that candidate is more loyal to you and to those values than to his or her party’s majority status.

Can Constitutional Rights Be Repealed?

Former U. S. Supreme Court Justice John Stevens’ call to repeal the Second Amendment shocked many, but it tells us something about the view of many Americans and particularly those who’ve been trained in our law schools.

In their view, God may exist, but He’s irrelevant, particularly to civil government. Therefore, in their minds, if the Second Amendment is repealed, the right to defend one’s self, even by the deadly force of a gun, goes away.

But if there is no lawgiver to provide rights that exist independent of and prior to civil government, then the only lawgiver and rights-giver is civil government. If that’s true, then the right to life, speech, and religious liberty are gone, too.

Think about that the next time someone tells you to leave God out of politics.

How You Fit into God’s Creational Purposes

NOTE: Since this radio segment aired, Restoring the Vision has been postponed from the original May 5, 2018, date until later this summer or fall due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts. We will advise you of the new date for the seminar once it has been rescheduled. We apologize for any inconvenience and will promptly make refunds to those who have registered.

What is the point of being a Christian? What are we “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 May 5th, 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 help you discover how your life fits into the overarching purpose of God for His creation.

Tennessee Law License Revoked?

Christian lawyers could find themselves disbarred if Tennessee’s Supreme Court adopts a proposed change to the ethics rules that govern Tennessee’s attorneys.

The proposed change adds a commentary to illuminate the intent behind the rule prohibiting discrimination. The proposed change says it is unethical for lawyers in either their professional or personal lives to “discriminate” on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status.

But to advocate against same-sex “marriage” and the cultural acceptance of homosexuality is not discriminatory to the Christian who believes that those things pervert God’s creational design for humanity.

Of course, others would disagree, and that points to the problem the professional organizations advocating for this change have: They have not provided a standard upon which certain actions can be deemed discriminatory. And with the absolute God who provides that standard, they cannot.

Are Inalienable Rights Dead?

Our recent focus on taking back marriage from the Supreme Court raises an even larger question: Does the right to marry come only from a legislative statute or a judicial ruling?

If it does, then inalienable rights may be dead. The whole premise behind them is that they do not come from a “law” that civil government makes, but from our Creator. But if we no longer believe marriage is rooted in the pre-existing creation law of God, then on what ground can we assert a right to life, free speech, or religious liberty? After all, civil governments have forbidden those rights in the past, but never the right to marry.

If Christians won’t fight for the right of a man and woman to marry without a government license, then maybe we don’t believe in inalienable rights anymore.
