Church & State

Goodness creates order. Evil creates chaos. It is no surprise, then, that the means through which order is kept and evil is contained in society is through law: an idea first given to us by the Lord Himself.
So why do God’s order and many of today’s governmental practices seem so opposed? And how do we, as Christians, respond?
In this seminar, David J. Jones will be addressing that very issue. Discussion will range from early Biblical foundations, and the development of law as we know it, to kingdom powers and the role of judgement.
Come learn with us how we can be effective in our communities and His Kingdom.
