I just finished watching / listening to (most of) Daily Wire's "Terror on the Prairie". So I want to do a movie-review, even though that's not what this page is primarily about, because I think this movie raises several issues that Christians need to think through. So, in this review, I'm going to engage with what I think are the main spiritual issues that need our consideration.
I think we need to challenge the way of thinking that divides life into different spheres and then attempts to assign Jesus' various teachings to their relevant spheres. Jesus is not just Lord over one or two spheres of life, he is Lord over All!
Christians adopt the same attitude as that of Christ, who did not come with a sword to crush the unjust, but became a man of sorrows to overcome sin's tyranny. This, not by war, but by peace, is how Christians overcome injustice.
While living abroad in China I began hearing the drum-beat of war. I was there during the Hong Kong crisis and the trade-war.

We're living in a world of increasing hostility and division. People feel threatened by those who choose not to get vaccinated because they see their choice as being reckless and cavalier with other people's lives. And they're frustrated because they feel that the unvaccinated are prolonging the pain of the pandemic. Others see the coercive force being implemented to pressure people into getting vaccinated as threatening the foundations of our civil freedoms. And they feel threatened by the potential dangers of the vaccine given questions about its long-term health impacts. As Christians we find that it is through the chaos of all these questions and doubts that we are called to become peacemakers!
Should Christians vote or be involved in politics? Come reason through this question with Biblical wisdom.
