where religion and politics meet

Everyone has a worldview. A worldview is what one believes about life: what is true, what is false, what is right, what is wrong, what are the rules, are there any rules, what is the meaning of life, what is important, what is not.

If a worldview includes a god/God, it is called a religion. If a bunch of people have the same religion, they give it a name.

Countries also have a worldview, a way of looking at life that directs government policies and laws and that contributes significantly to the culture. Ours used to be Christianity. Now it is secularism, which is practical atheism.

Some of us are trying to engage the government, the culture, and the people who live here to see life again from a Christian perspective and to show how secularism is both inadequate and just plain wrong.

A religion is not a culture, though it creates one. It is not what you prefer, like your taste in music or your favorite movie. It is what you believe to be true. Because it deals with things like God, much of its contents is not subject to the scientific method, but the reasons why one chooses to believe in God or a particular religion certainly demand serious investigation and critical thinking.

Every human being has the duty to search for and learn the truth about life. Education and science used to be valuable tools in this search, but science has chosen to answer the foundational questions without accepting the possibility of any supernatural causes, and education no longer considers the search to be necessary or worthwhile.

poligion: 1) the proper synthesis of religion and politics 2) the realization, belief, or position that politics and religion cannot be separated or compartmentalized, that a person’s religion invariably affects one’s political decisions and that political decisions invariably stem from one’s worldview, which is what a religion is.

If you are new to this site, I would encourage you to browse through the older articles. They deal with a lot of the more basic issues,

For now I want to focus my writing now articles specifically addressed to Christians. So most of my new posts will be on my other website listed below. I will continue to write and post short responses to newspaper columns and letters and even other articles as the inspiration hits me.

Visit my other websites theimportanceofhealing blogspot.com where I talk about healing and my book of the same name and LarrysBibleStudies.blogspot.com where I am posting all my other Bible studies. Follow this link to my videos on youtube:

Vetting the refugees: a page from their handbook

A lot of people are concerned that these Muslim refugees that our President wants to bring into our country are properly vetted.  I was able to obtain a page from the vetter’s handbook that we use to vet them, and I reproduce it here.

6)         You have a neighbor who is an evangelical Christian.  He invites you to his house for a Bible study.  What do you do?
            a)         Go to it.  Maybe you can then invite him to your mosque and tell him about Islam.
            b)         Thank him for the invitation, but say that you would rather not at this time.
            c)         Kill him.
7)         You are worried that your young daughter will be corrupted in modern American culture.  What do you do?
            a)         Get her involved in a youth group at the mosque to keep her busy.
            b)         Get her a female genital mutilation.
            c)         Kill her.
8)         Your nephew has become a born-again Christian.  He wants to talk to you about Jesus.  What do you do?
            a)         Ask your imam to go see him.
            b)         Talk to your Muslim community with people with similar problems seeking their advice.
            c)         Kill him.
9)         Your child’s teacher at school tells your child that all cultures are equal, and that we need to be tolerant of other cultures.  Your child agrees with her.  What do you do?
            a)         Meet with the teacher and explain how Islam is an exception to this rule.
            b)         Kill her.
            c)         Kill her and your child.
10)       A co-worker got into a discussion about religion and said that all religions are alike, manmade inventions, and people like Muhammad are just charlatans.  What do you do?
            a)         Engage him in discussion and ask him to show evidence for his statements.
            b)         Invite him to your mosque so he can see the truth of your religion.
            c)         Kill him.
11)       Your teenage daughter has begun dating a non-Muslim boy.  What do you do?
            a)         Have the adult members of the family talk to her of her responsibility to her family and her religion.
            b)         Ban her from seeing this boy anymore and restrict her social life.
            c)         Kill her.

Scoring:           There are no right or wrong answers to these questions.  What matters is that you answered the questions truthfully and sincerely.  Who are we to judge the religion or culture of another?  In the West, we consider all religions and cultures to be equal.  All we ask is that these are sincere beliefs.

You have passed the vetting process.  Welcome to the United States!  You will be contacted shortly about where and when you may move into your new home, and your government assistance payments will begin a week or so after you move in.  Again, welcome to your new home!
