The Cross and the Flag #2 of 4

October 2, 2008
We've all heard the call: "Let's take America back!" Some would have us make political salvation our prime religious objective. It may be that some of us as runners in life's race have found a serious detour. There's danger around the bend if we don't get back on the main road. Today: avoiding the temptation to put the cross and the flag on the same level.

The red, white, and blue...we Americans treasure our flag for what it represents. But some think the flag is as important as the cross. When it comes to being citizens of both heaven and earth, believers running the race of life need to keep first things first. Stand by for some flying sparks, as Pastor Erwin Lutzer takes aim at those who equate Old Glory with the one place of true Glory.

There's a great battle going on... a battle that will not cease until the end of this age. It's the clash of cross and culture. As runners in the race of life, believers need to understand the nature of this conflict. As citizens of both heaven and earth, we have obligations to both, obligations we must keep distinct, especially at election time. Today: we'll try to sort it all out.

When culture says one thing, but God says another, whose voice do you heed? There's a great temptation to avoid the conflict. But the cross of Christ is inherently in conflict with our culture...especially these days, as much of the media flaunt immoral behavior as normal. Politicians vie for position on issues the Bible settled long ago. Thankfully, the cross can do what politics can't.

To many people, the Bible is something you put your hand on to be sworn into office. Beyond that, it's just Jewish myths and moral teaching. But the sixty-six books that make up our Bible contain powerful, life-changing truth, thanks to the God who made sure we're reading what He intended.

If you trust your eternal destiny to the writings in an ancient book, it's reasonable to ask if that book is trustworthy. In the case of the Bible, the answer is "yes," especially in terms of which writings made it into the book, a set of documents we call the canon of scripture. To learn more, stay with us.
