At next month's Values Voter Summit in Washington DC, I'll be on a panel titled "God & Caesar: Worldview, Government, and the Good Life," which is scheduled for the afternoon of Saturday, September 13. Here's the official description:
This panel will address the basics of sound, biblical thinking about government and politics, beginning with the religious roots of political order and the definition of true freedom. It will discuss the key concept of "jurisdiction", the biblical idea that God grants authority to various interdependent governments--including church, state and family--in diverse spheres. Throughout the discussion, the panel will highlight the importance of godly wisdom as individuals engage the world through the political process.Since worldview thinking is meant to address all of life, and politics is a big part of our everyday existence (especially in an election year), this is an opportunity to flesh out a conceptual framework for engagement from a Christian perspective. I'll be joined on the panel by Michael Schutt, author of Redeeming Law, and we'll be moderated by Worldview Academy co-founder Randy Sims.
