What is the role of government?
Well, that depends on whether we’re talking about self-government, family government, church government, or civil government.
But we don’t even seem to know that there are such things as self government, family government, and church government these days; at least not in the sense that these areas of government are every bit as legitimate as state or civil government. Instead, we tend to default to “government” as relating to the State, with individuals, churches, and families all subservient and absorbed under the authority of civil government.
Yet nothing could be further from the truth – or more dangerous in practice, as we see more plainly with each passing day of State power grabs and cultural decline here in the “land of the free” and the home of the NSA.
So what do we do to right this ship?
What do we do to correct our misconceptions?
What do we do to reform and restore our dying culture?
These are some of the questions that we’ll be diving into in this week’s Tennessee General Assembly Bible Study in Nashville, which I’d like to share with you here (especially because my prep time in writing and laying out the print material pictured below substantially cuts into my blogging time during Session, which runs from early January to April or May).
For those of you supporting the Bible study as we head into our second year: Thank you!
