Thursday Thought: Observations from a Christian Statesman (from Sept 2016)

Point of Grace talk featuring WI State Representative Jesse Kremer (Sept 2016).

Why does the 'state' have a vested interest in ensuring and encouraging that marriage remains a civil institution... even if marriage between a man and a woman has not been protected at the federal level? In school I was taught that most of the Founding Fathers were deists and atheists; is this true? What was the origin of our public schools and why were they begun? Is it probable that within the next 50-100 years Muslim flags could be waving over our statehouses and many aspects of Sharia law be integrated into our statutes?

This presentation is not intended to be political, but to tie Scripture with our role as Christians when it comes to discussing government. I hope the discussion will open eyes as to how government, especially state government functions, and some issues that we must address within our own churches and schools so that future generations are not only fearless for the Lord, but understand the true history and nature of this nation. 

The Gathering Series is presented by The Point of Grace - Milwaukee Area Campus Ministry (TPOG)
