Proverbs tells us there is victory in an abundance of counselors, so I called a few of my wiser friends and asked if they’d share their counsel with us as we navigate a historic and contentious presidential election. We hear from Dr. E. Calvin Beisner in this episode.
From the episode:
“We may have a lot of passion, but we have to set the passion aside for a while to carefully investigate the facts. Once we understand the facts well, we can bring our passion back in and it can be well-directed.”
“Unfortunately, the social justice movement wrongly defines “justice” and, therefore, undermines true social relationships; but it also undermines the gospel because, frankly, we cannot understand grace rightly if we do not understand justice rightly.”
“Justice means rendering, impartially and proportionally to everyone, what is due in conformity with the righteous standard of God’s moral law. “
