#201 Listener Questions, Part 1

Program #201 “Questions” – 9/6/2015 – Synopsis

In Program #201, I answer the following questions from listeners (1 Peter 3:15):

1. Why aren’t more Christians standing up against abortion? (Romans 12:21)

2. Why do the vast majority of Christians lack discernment? (Luke 18:8; Matthew 7:13-14; Luke 13:23; 2 Timothy 4:6)

3. What is the proper role of Christianity in our society today? (Acts 24:25)

4. Do churches and pastors have a responsibility to encourage their congregants to engage in our civic society? (1 Timothy 2:1–4; Titus 3:1)

5. Why do many Christians fail to vote?

6. Why aren’t more Christians politically involved? (1 Corinthians 1:26-27)

I conclude by pointing out that all of these questions express the same exact frustration that the Old Testament believers had with the nation of Israel. The questions coming from Christians today reflect the same question that the people of God have asked for centuries – Why do the wicked rule and the righteous are few in number? (Micah 7:2, Psalm 12:1, Jeremiah 5:1, Isaiah 63:5, Isaiah 59:16, Isaiah 50:2, Isaiah 41:28)
