Render Unto Caesar: Seek the Welfare of the City

Model_on_Flip_Chart.jpg

This sermon is the final of a 4-week series I am doing on faith and politics. My goal is not to tell people what to think or who to vote for, but rather to address some of the underlying spiritual issues at play in our national and global politics. I want to help Christians learn how to think about politics.

This sermon explores how Christianity is based on core convictions that we have to prayerfully translate into voting and policy decisions. I drew the diagram that is pictured here.

This sermon is the third of a 4-week series I am doing on faith and politics. My goal is not to tell people what to think or who to vote for, but rather to address some of the underlying spiritual issues at play in our national and global politics. I want to help Christians learn how to think about politics.

This sermon explores the politics of the Bible and how the Bible should inform our politics and how Jesus should be our political example.

Render Unto Caesar: Some Trust in Chariots

IMG_1861.jpg

This sermon is the second of a 4 week series I am doing on faith and politics. My goal is not to tell people what to think or who to vote for, but rather to address some of the underlying spiritual issues at play in our national and global politics. I want to help Christians learn how to think about politics.

This sermon was given on September 11, 2016. It was the 15 year anniversary of 9/11 attacks on the United States. I reflect on the feeling of fear that we have had since that day and the growing violence from guns in our country in the years since. How should Christians think about war and violence?

Render Unto Caesar: Two Kingdoms

RenderUntoCaesarFlyer.jpeg
This sermon begins a 4 week sermon series I am doing on faith and politics. My goal is not to tell people what to think or who to vote for, but rather to address some of the underlying spiritual issues at play in our national and global politics. I want to help Christians learn how to think about politics.
In this sermon, I look at the idea that, in the Bible, we are part of two kingdoms--the kingdom of this world and the kingdom of God (sometimes also called the kingdom of heaven). What does it mean that we live in these two kingdoms? How does the idea of two kingdoms jive with America's idea of the separation of church and state?
