Government by God's Design Bible Study
The first Bible study started on January 29, 2017. The next session will be held on Sunday, February 12, from 5-7 pm at Greater St. Mary Missionary Baptist Church on 2nd Ave in Lake Charles. The Feb 12 session will focus on the Biblical worldview. Click here for Bible study details.
The world has done a good job of trying to removing God from the very process and institution of government that He designed - and we have allowed it. The church should equip Christian politicians with the training and processes needed to be successful in their pursuits to honor God as elected officials. In politics, it's very easy to get caught up in special interests, surveys, studies, power, pride and the next election. Unless there is clarity of belief, purpose and priorities our best efforts will not honor God.
The Bible provides the needed guidance for our governing authorities, but understanding that guidance and knowing how to apply it to today's situations could use some discussion, examples and practice. Please join me in an effort to inform our elected officials and candidates as well as ourselves about God's design for Government. Let's discuss the Biblical principles, apply Biblical processes and prepare ourselves for more effective Christian collaboration.
Workshop options - Workshops include instruction, videos, breakout sessions, practice and personal discovery. A mix of elected officials/candidates and interested Christian leaders (1:4 ratio) is the ideal audience for a full workshop. There are 10 - 12 hours of instruction and interaction, which can be broken into two, three or four sessions.
Presentation options - The materials, with some limited activities, can be presented by topic to Sunday School classes, non-profit groups or other groups as interested. Time allotment determines the level of detail presented.
If you would like to host a workshop or deliver one, please contact me for more information.
Remember, 1 Timothy 2:2 tells us that it is those in authority who create the space in which we might lead peaceful lives and we may be Godly (spread the Gospel).
