April 5

When the Bible teaches that God engages the World for the sake of the world in two distinct ways, modern people tend to hear “Church and State” alone. Or, even worse, they hear the “separation of Church and State,” as if the Church needs to avoid having a voice in the public sphere of things in American culture. The Bible doesn’t teach such a nice, neat package. And, the founding Fathers of America weren’t afraid of too much “church” in society. They were afraid of too much power being amassed in an overarching government. For more information see www.lcrlfreedom.org

Jesus said some very clear things about how things are. One thing that He said very clearly, “My Kingdom is not of this world.”  Yet there He was, in the flesh, in the world to save the world. Jesus own ministry among us reveals the truth that Christians are to be in the world, not of the world, for the world. For more information see www.lcrlfreedom.org

One of the main efforts of our Lutheran Center For Religious Liberty’s work in Washington D.C. is to partner with various, like-minded organizations to roll back the weaponization of politics today, especially as it concerns valid differences of opinion as to how we are to live our lives faithfully and morally.  For more information see www.lcrlfreedom.org

A Christian, 2 Kingdom citizen realizes that God is at work in the world two distinct ways to bless. In the “Left-Hand” kingdom engagement, God actually works through the orders of His creation as well as through the blessings of good government. So many of the issues that we face today are some form of breakdown in these orders or through these public vocations. But so many things are tied together, are in relationship with each other.  For more information see www.lcrlfreedom.org
