Election Year at Place for Truth
How should Christians act and speak in the midst of this loud and divisive political season? While websites devoted to politics and news give you the latest buzz, polls, and minute-by-minute analysis, you will find Place for Truth slightly different, dare I say refreshingly different. Place for Truth will not only provide a biblical perspective, but one from the past; a past that the Church should not forget. Each week new quotes, outlines, and sketches of important sermons selected and edited by contributor David Hall will be posted – sermons originally delivered in conjunction with an American election or an American political debate.
Visit Place for Truth to read David’s inaugural post, “Unlimited Submission and Non-Resistance to the Higher Powers,” a sermon preached by Jonathan Mayhew in 1750. While there be sure to subscribe to receive updates from David and all of our Place for Truth contributors including Mark Johnston, Tim Witmer, and Jonathan Master, host of the bi-weekly biblical doctrine podcast Theology on the Go.
Is it possible that pastors from the past have something to teach us about political involvement in our own day? We think so; and we hope that this wisdom from the past will benefit churches and pastors committed to faithful living in America today.
