Civil Engagement: Salt and Light

  • Dr. John Sparks wrote an excellent piece on that piece of Constitutional chicanery known as the Obergeffel decision.  It was picked up by Human Events.  “What Is Wrong With the New Right of Marriage? Obergefell v. Hodges,” July 2, 2015.
  • Michael Brown is fearless, reasoned, compassionate, and uncompromising in proclaiming Biblical truth in kind, open, winsome ways in the face of the LGBT juggernaut.  He is a prolific author with a fascinating biography.  In this sobering op-ed he details the degree to which the Left equates conservative Christianity with ISIS, not just rhetorically and really, and not just the so-called “whacko, fringe-elements” of the Left either.  Warning:  some of the quotes here are pretty disturbing.  “When Committed Christians Are Compared to ISIS.”

Scriptura

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?  It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. Your are the light of the world.  A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”  Matthew 5:13-14
…He said to them, “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”  Matthew 22:21b
