Humility, Civility, and Unity in Political Discourse, Part 2

October 21, 2020

Bob Lepine's paraphrase of the words of the Apostle Paul asserts that gospel unity should always be more important, more significant, and more powerful than whatever our disagreements are about, who we’re voting for, or our views on governance. Hear the conclusion of Bob's sermon, reminding believers of the importance of humility, civility, and unity in political discourse.

In the ever-escalating tension of today's culture, Bob Lepine poses this question to the congregation at Redeemer Church in Little Rock, Ark.: How would Jesus want us to represent Him when we talk about society, politics, and government? According to the Bible, what we agree on about Jesus and the essentials of our faith should bind us together in Christ tighter than our politics should divide us.

God rules over the affairs of men whether our human rulers are guardians and protectors or tyrants and oppressors. Bob Lepine shares that there is no guarantee in the Bible that the gates of hell will not prevail against a nation. But there is a promise from the lips of Jesus Himself that the gates of hell will not prevail against His church.

Dr. John Perkins saw and endured horrific racism. On one occasion, he was beaten and tortured in jail. But God convicted him of his own hateful reaction and inclined his heart toward racial reconciliation through the gospel. God used his 2-year-old son singing a song to bring Dr. Perkins to faith.

One perspective says "We're all just people and race doesn't matter." Another says "Ethnic heritage is all that matters." Jasmine Holmes, author of the book Mother to Son, wants her son to understand he is made in the image of God, to understand the beauty of diversity, and to be a hopeful optimist centered on the gospel of Christ.

Jasmine Holmes, author of the book Mother to Son and daughter to pastor Voddie Baucham, knows what strong parenting looks like. But that didn't shield her from the pain of casual prejudice growing up in a majority culture. Now a young mom, she protects her son by showing him he is "fearfully and wonderfully made."

Tired of self-focused, consumer-centric faith? Turn away from "me-ology," says Jen Oshman, and learn the powerful theology of saying, "Enough about me!" You are not the sum of your sin or of your good deeds, but you are God's workmanship in Christ!
October 13, 2020
Author of the book Enough About Me, Jen Oshman speaks to women about issues of identity and self-image. Discovering who we are and whose we are, says Oshman, is the key. Looking only inward will leave you feeling fearful and paralyzed. But there is no fear in the love of Christ.

Every extended family has in it people who are far from God. But it's never too late, says Nancy Guthrie, for God to reach the most self-righteous or the most cynical and hard-hearted. For God "shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Somewhere today, a little boy or girl has been abused, hunkered down in a closet crying, and doesn't know what love feels like. He or she is asking God to send someone to help. "That often comes in the form of an officer in a blue uniform," says Adam Davis, former police officer and author of the book Behind the Badge.

Retired police officer Adam Davis says police work takes a toll on a marriage. From 12-hour shifts to having no friends except for other law enforcement officers, the stress of the job hardened Adam's heart and made him want to protect his spouse and family so badly that he quit communicating altogether. Something had to change.
