“Not knowing what happened before you were born is to be stuck in
childhood forever. What does a person’s life amount to
without the historical consciousness that weaves one’s life into the life
of earlier generations?”
Marcus Tullius Cicero (January 3, 106 BC – December 7, 43 BC)
orator, statesman, political theorist, lawyer and philosopher of Ancient Rome

Civic involvement is an important part of my Christian faith. I am not an expert investigative reporter nor am I physic. I do not know if these articles are accurate. I am just a mom who is concerned about the world my child is inheriting. I post them to promote thinking. If you are easily offended, then go away. This blog is not for you. I am sharing what concerns me and I want to understand what is going on.
“To find out who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

Over the last years I’ve traveled, I’ve been asked this question over and over again: ‘Dr. Jeremiah, do you think God is finished with America?’ But that is the wrong question.

Much has been given to us, and much will be expected. If we choose not to vote, if we isolate ourselves in a Christian subculture and ignore the injustices around us, if we do not encourage the oppressed, help orphans and widows, or work for a just society, then we will bear a significant measure of the blame for the evils that surround us.”

We Christians must submit to government. Any government. Read your Bible, and leave me alone,” or words to that effect. No doubt, some who use this argument are sincere. They are only repeating what they have heard their pastor and other religious leaders say. On the other hand, let’s be honest enough to admit that some who use this argument are just plain lazy, apathetic, and indifferent. And Romans 13 is their escape from responsibility. I suspect this is the much larger group, by the way….”
