Who We Are
Economic life, like every other area of life, is motivated by inescapably religious assumptions. As the people of God, it is important that we cultivate a biblical set of economic assumptions. In this week’s episode, Joe Boot addresses a class at Regent University on the question of justice and economics.
The great need of our generation is the recovery of a uniquely Christian mind, which will include a thoroughly Christian approach to language. In our minds, speech, and action we are to be submitted to the authority of Jesus, the Word of God.
How do we balance bad news with a confidence in the victory of the gospel, and how should a Christian live and work in this climate?
The idea of ultimate authority is an inescapable concept, which is clearly on display in our vision of politics. Any claim to authority rests on an idea of sovereignty – it all depends which god you believe in.
