Politics - Class 4 | Trends In American Politics

October 12, 2020 • Hunter Beaumont

We conclude our class on Politics by looking at big trends that are shaping American politics right now and asking: How does the gospel of Jesus speak in a unique way to these tensions? First, we see that America was founded on principles of liberty, protected by the rule of law (aka "classical liberalism"). Today, the stability of this liberal order is being stressed by illiberal forces on both the right and left–a resurgent nationalism (right) and a lack of confidence in liberalism to produce social justice (left). Then, we learn that this is happening at the same time that America is becoming more secular and politics is functioning as a replacement religion.

Politics - Class 3 | Debating, Discussing, Voting

October 5, 2020 • Hunter Beaumont

In part 3 of our Vision for Life class on Politics, we learn about different "political cultures" inside American Christianity and how these different cultures are causing tension inside the Church.  We ask: In light of our cultural and political differences, how can we talk about politics in a constructive way?  We also take up the subject of voting, using Jesus' famous teaching, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's.” Presentation: https://storage.snappages.site/gcsxwc/assets/files/politics-3-debating-discussing-voting-12.pdf

Politics - Class 2 | Political Engagement

September 28, 2020 • Hunter Beaumont

In part 2 of our Vision for Life class on politics we ask: how should Christians engage public politics? We examine several common but misguided ways Christians have tended to engage and craft a more sustainable approach. We also ask: how should teaching in Scripture inform the public policies for which we advocate? Why is wisdom needed for most of our political choices?

Politics - Class 1 | Political Foundations

September 21, 2020 • Hunter Beaumont

In part 1 of our Vision for Life class on politics, we look at three foundations from Scripture that help us navigate politics. What do we mean when we say "politics?" Why does God ordain government? What purpose does good government serve? How is the Church also political?
