Artial radio was something I have never considered Many people might not think radio has as much influence with the proliferation of the internet we must always remember that all people have internet access So while the internet is not considered a public good but devices with antennas are free to access broadcasts radio is therefore accessible Rush Limbaugh and his influence would therefore be a counterbalance to the university influence Grudem mentions in the campaign finance section I have long believed in personally balancing the information I consume I actively listen to liberal and conservative podcasts since the 2016 election I also balance between national and locally based conversations I think that we are living in an age were many have falling into far right or far left echo chambers and thus our
Political Institutions Are Starting To Reflect As institutions are starting to reflect as I think it is a dangerous thing regardless of which end of the spectrum you fall into When we lose perspective that is enemies are not flesh and blood but the forces of darkness we can start demonizing our fellow brothers and sisters instead of loving them as our neighbors that God calls us to doOverall I thought this was a great book and I enjoying both Grudem s perspective and the manner of how he balances spelling out political topics and looking at scripture for how a Christian should respond While I do have my criticisms for certain areas they
are not enough to lead me to dismiss Grudem s arguments I would encourage others to it not enough to lead me to dismiss Grudem s arguments I would encourage others to read it I would hope that Christians would challenge themselves concern how they come to certain conclusions concerning certain political observation. Ook is a must read for any Christian concerned about current debates over social issues such as abortion education homosexual marriage pornography religious freedom and others Not every reader will agree with the book's conclusions But by grounding his analysis deeply on Scripture Grudem has euipped Christians to better understand and respond to some of today's ey political debates wisely and in a manner consistent with their primary citizenship as members and ambassadors of the ingdom of God. ,

Small Disagreed With SomeparagraphI with some Grudem s conclusions for the negative impact of campaign finance laws He argues that many of the richest people in politics who have been elected are Democrats he also identifies the rich mega donor George Soros This presumes however that there are not as eually rich if not billionaires who contribute to the Republicans As I write this in 2020 many of the examples Grudem mentions for Democrats are now appointed in executive levels of the US government within a Republican administrationThe Supreme Court ruling Citizens United v FEC is mentioned in the book This has subseuently lead to the creation of Super PACs which allowed for privation donations to be permitted and obscured Grudem mentions that while private individuals should be allowed to make political contributions he supports the reporting of contributions that exceed the amounts common people would provide I agree with the sentiment but since the case the regulations were struct it has expanded the level of corruption in my opinion I do now I need to get a better understanding of this area I also felt that while it is appropriate to highlight the manner of influence from academia and movies the argument for grouping these areas into the campaign finance section wasn t strong enough for meThe area that seemed to be most enlightening for me was the 1949 FCC policy the Fairness Doctrine While many of the components of what Grudem shared isn t new the idea that no longer the Fairness Doctrine While many of the components of what Grudem shared isn t new the idea that no longer radio stations to present different sides of controversial issues lead to the rise of Litical positions that would be called conservative than liberal However “it is important to understand that I see these positions as flowing out of the Bible's teachings rather than positions I hold prior to or independently of those biblical teachings he writes My primary purpose in the book is not to be liberal or conservative or Democrat or Republican but to explain a biblical worldview and a biblical perspective on issues of politics law and government Concise yet carefully argued this .

Time Of Writing As Politicalof writing as political and platforms for the parties can change over timeI appreciate the manner of how Grudem presents topics such as birth marriage religious expression and one s right to defend himself from both the Biblical standpoint and the laws and rulings that have addressed these areas He also doesn t remove his opinion on these areas making clear where he stands and his political involvements when relevant I don t believe a person could claim to be non biased while addressing such topics Gruden also concludes his book by addressing the manner of writing a book from either a Republican Democratic or balanced view perspective He doesn t hide his conclusions in support of Republican ideologies and acknowledges another author who writes from a liberal point of view as a counterbalanceThree areas another author who writes from a liberal point of view as a counterbalanceThree areas my attention in the book These were the conversations on capital punishment the abolition of campaign finance laws and the end of the fairness doctrineI feel could be said about the impact on capital punishment with several types of communities given the history of how it has been.
