Government

A Christian view of government differs significantly from views proposed by many political theorists. The basis for civil government is rooted in our created nature. We are rational and volitional beings. We are not determined by fate, as the Greeks would have said, nor are we determined by our environment as modern behaviorists say. We have the power of choice. Therefore we can exercise delegated power over the created order. Thus a biblical view of human nature requires a governmental system that acknowledges human responsibility.

While the source of civil government is rooted in human responsibility, the need for government derives from the necessity of controlling human sinfulness. God ordained civil government to restrain evil (cf. Gen. 9). Anarchy, for example, is not a viable option because all have sinned (Rom. 3:23) and are in need of external control.

Health

As we seek to enjoy the blessings of God in our lives, it is necessary that we bring those lives increasingly under His control. In an ultimate sense, of course, everything is absolutely under God's control. In an immediate sense, however, there is much we can do to make our lives conform better to God's holy Word and to improve our relationship with Him. One of the significant areas we should consider is how to take proper care of this body that God has provided so that we are able to perform His will on this earth.

Finances

The Bible contains about 500 verses on prayer and a little less than 500 verses on faith, yet over 2,350 verses that address in very practical, specific ways how to earn, save, spend, invest and give money. Two-thirds of the parables deal with money. The Bible has more to say about money than heaven and hell combined, even more to say about money than salvation. The Bible has more to say about money than any other subject except love.

Biblical financial principles applied yesterday, they apply today, and they will apply tomorrow. His principles apply if you have a little or a lot, if you are single or married,
if you are young or young-at-heart.
