  Did the pandemic reveal the character of the American church-Part 1? Silence & Complacency? Stability was shaken even in the church. -Billy Graham “bad politicians are elected by good people who don’t vote. -Ronald Reagan “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” Jude 1:4 states “for certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.” American History Removed and Replaced with Movements American History: Schools are adopting movements and removing the true foundation of Amer

The church and politics: Vote

1 in 3 Christians may not vote in this election. I was energized yesterday which was the 1st day for early voting. We took part in a rally where I talked to people which many of them were elderly and listened to their concerns about food, gas, and energy prices. I’ve been told to keep politics out of the church, but religion plays a powerful role in politics, and the relationship between the two is every-changing.

Spiritual Leadership: Boundaries Paper

  Tanya Attebery 17 September 2022 Lead 103: Spiritual Leadership Boundaries: Family, Work, & Worldview “And so, we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them” (New Application Study Bible, 1 John 4:16). This scripture encompasses the very nature of God. Our deepest need is to belong, so relationships give us a sense of connectedness and a purpose for our soul’s existence. Reading the book on boundaries I reflected on three aspects as I relate to my family, my career, and how I can take my Christian worldview to impact those who are spiritually lost. My spiritual and emotional radar was broken from childhood. My father abandoned me when I was five years old. One of my stepfathers was an alcoholics and physical abuser of my mom.
