Censorship and the Christians

Is free speech a nicety that we stumbled on or does it derive from biblical principles

Steve Schlichter 0 162 Article rating: 5.0

Western society historically values the freedom of speech. The 1st ammendment is an expression of the innate right that humans have right to voice their values. Does this right derive from a biblical perspective or is it something that we arrived at thru other means.

We all value freedom of speech but where does it come from?

Steve Schlichter will be arguing that the freedom of speech is derived from man's delegation of the image of God and from biblical principles. He is an evangelical Christian and has 5 children with his wife, Jenni. As a libertarian, he seeks to demonstrate how the cause of liberty is consistent and necessary in a Christian worldview.

Gregory Richardson will take the position that while good, freedom of speech is not a Biblical principle per se.  Greg is also an evangelical Christian for over 40 years, he is happily married with 3 "children."  While a passionate lover of politics, he believes none of the 3 leading parties accurately encompass the Christian belief system.

Biblical justice and a fair wage

What is just according to the Bible and can it be used to determine what are fair wages

Steve Schlichter 0 422 Article rating: No rating

The Bible has a lot to say about justice as it relates to wealth and poverty. The Christian cannot escape the fact that God is concerned about the poor, the oppressed, and those that cannot defend themselves. As Christians, God's concerns are our concern. The Bible not only provides us motivation but also provides us with principles and guidelines.

What does biblical justice look like and what is the Christians role in it's implementation?
