The Rise of the Tyrant, Part 1 | William Federer

October 17, 2016
The Bible carries prophetic suggestion that one day a tyrant will establish a global government. On the national scale, some people fear that the polarized state of the United States may become stepping-stones for the rise of a tyrant. What do we know about trends that lead to tyrants? Bill Federer has been studying this topic in depth, and in this interview he raises thought-provoking issues related to the national and world scene, all related to historic trends. Did you know Greek philosopher Plato predicted democracy would degenerate into anarchy once people lost their virtue, then a tyrant would arise? Did you know that power inevitably concentrates into the hands of one person? What was the first nation in recorded history that attempted to rule itself without a king? (Hint: they left from Egypt around c.1400 BC). Join us as we dive into this significant topic.

About Beyond Words

Beyond Words radio ministry began in 2008 (formerly known as The Vital Connection). Originally the broadcasts were focused upon the community around Dr. William P. Campbell’s church in Hendersonville, NC. Today, Beyond Words has expanded to include guests and topics that address issues facing the church across the nation and world. Guests have included Os Guinness, Dr. Richard Blackaby, Dr. Lloyd Ogilvie, Paul Young, and Dr. Richard Foster. Campbell and his guests have covered topics ranging from revival and prayer to Christian responsibility in business to issues of church and culture.

About Dr. William P. Campbell

The son of the founders of Community Bible Study, Bill knows from personal experience that people grow in spiritual depth and Biblical knowledge when they use carefully constructed Bible studies illuminated with well-researched commentary background. Bill saw Community Bible Study develop from his parent’s living room to an international ministry serving many thousands of people. Having written commentaries for Community Bible Study, he began writing material for the churches he pastored so that he could connect Sunday sermons to weekly devotional reading and small group Bible studies. He tested and improved materials in congregations over a period of 15 years, and through his Divinity Ministry studies at Fuller Theological Seminary, he researched the most effective ways to build the Connections ministry. He also holds a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Seminary and a Bachelors of Biology from Westmont College. Bill has written a variety of articles, publications, and authored one book published by Zondervan. Bill serves as Executive Director and President of the Board for Scripture Awakening, and pastors First Presbyterian Church in Hendersonville, NC.
