The Prophet’s Complaint / Christian Socialism
The Prophet’s Complaint – I have no patience with pretenders to the prophet’s office, though I have encountered a few of them. What is it about disasters that brings so many would-be prophets out of the woodwork? Jesus’ disciples asked Him what would be the sign of His coming and the end of the age. He said nations would rise against each other, there would be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes. Thus a flurry of earthquakes can excite prophets telling us the end is near. But what are these prophets overlooking in Jesus’s answer? Learn what the Bible says about these would-be prophets.
Christian Socialism – Many Christians have difficulty sorting out who they are politically. Where do Christians fit in the political spectrum? Are they more conservative than liberal? Are they more socialist than nationalist? You hear a lot about “social justice,” but there is a marked difference between a just society and a compassionate one. Do you understand the difference? Should your faith inform the way you vote? Churches are generally nonprofit organizations, hence not allowed to support this or that candidate, nor any ballot issue. It remains to be seen how long churches will be allowed to condemn immoral behavior. These are crucial issues you need to understand and will learn about from this broadcast.
