I'm glad someone had enough concern and passion for our country to say something. If it was left to most Christians in our day our country would go straight tell hell while they all stand around not getting involved in politics.
How did the political arena become a Christ free zone? I thought the Lordship of Christ extended to every sphere of life?
Maybe we're just too biblically shallow to put Scriptural truths together like the puritans did and apply them to every aspect of life. Maybe they only seem wrong to us because we are wrong and think that we're right.
It seems to me that as the puritan mindset faded from our country and our churches we sank into a bottomless pit of debauchery and stupidity. Just look at where we are now!
Have you read Bahnsens book for yourself? Do you really think that they are advocating a return to everything in the O.T. Law? I believe that if you did the Biblical thing and studied the matter more thoroughly for yourself you would find that several of these quotes are taken completely out of context. Such things are completely unbecoming of true Christian behavior.
