Thank you Rev. Swanson,
Thank you so much for this message. You and your guest hit the nail on the head when you pointed out that the CT school massacre is a SIN problem. I also benefited from your link of this tragedy to abortion and violent media. Thank you for this thoughtful, Biblical response to the terrible tragedy in Newtown.

Yes, so talking a good game does not a conservative make.
"Spending during Reagan's two terms (FY 1981‚Äď88) averaged 22.4% GDP, well above the 20.6% GDP average from 1971 to 2009. In addition, the public debt rose from 26% GDP in 1980 to 41% GDP by 1988. In dollar terms, the public debt rose from $712 billion in 1980 to $2,052 billion in 1988, a roughly three-fold increase."
"During Reagan's presidency the annual deficits averaged 4.2% of GDP after inheriting an annual deficit of 2.7% of GDP in 1980 under president Carter."
And a plurality of Americans think the polls are biased? Probably just a couple of reformed baptist pastors - they are fixated on plurality.
Great Sermon! hi pastor muether! just wanted to be an encourager since you are encouraging me with this series. looking forward to the next one. maybe we will come down and visit in the next couple of weeks.
Great Sermon! I was convicted by my own busyness and distraction in life. This is such a blind spot for so many who struggle to be still and know God. Thank you for speaking truth on this topic. Praise be to God!
Just what I needed! I have been so discouraged lately by what I see. Sometimes I am tempted to just bury my head in the sand, but that is not God's way. Thank you, Dr. White, for reminding me of that.
