Six Convictions I hold today, on Inauguration Day, which are all true at once, all at the same time:

Six Convictions I hold today, on Inauguration Day, which are all true at once, all at the same time:

by Pastor Eric Anderson

1. Joe Biden is now President Biden, and I will refer to him by this Title. This is important for me do so, and for my witness. I honor the office which is God ordained, even if I am less-than-optimistic regarding the one who holds the office. (I Timothy 2:2, Romans 13).

2. Joe Biden as US President is God’s secret will revealed (Daniel 2:21). I opposed his election, for many reasons. I have serious question regarding election integrity. I also understand now that, above all this, it is God’s will revealed that Joe Biden is President. I can rest in this because God alone is the Sovereign, and President Biden’s heart is like water in the Lord’s Hand (Proverbs 21:1), to turn as He so wills.

3. This does not mean I agree with his Platform and positions and that I will go along with them, cart blanch. We should work for election reform, and for courageous leaders to elect in the next election. We should oppose, resist, and speak against evil. (I am against almost everything, both as written and unwritten, on Biblical grounds, which the DFL stands for today)

4. The election of President Biden and all of the destruction which, (predictably) will probably come from his administration is what we deserve, not what we should or do want (Romans 1:17-31)

5. This is a great time for the church, as both an heavenly and earthly reality. There is much we can do, many things to teach, to speak, to practice, which are the will of God for our lives, regardless of our nation or circumstances, whether in the the promised land, or back in Egypt (Colossians 3:23).I hope we appreciate anew each and ever freedom and opportunity we have beforehand taken for granted, and get to work.

6. God’s Providence, of which He is the first cause, using secondary causes, both human and natural, is surprising at every turn. Under God’s Providence, we should be specifically thankful for any good that happens during this Administration while speaking against the bad. Practicing discernment is good, making and listening to acute and specific prophetic predictions is unwise.

“All Things will work for the good of those who love Him and are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28)

Podcast: The Law of God: The foundational authority and abiding ethic for all of life

Here is an Audio Link to the podcast from the December Zoom Conversation on our series called “A Place for Truth.”

In the first part we covered foundational topics of the Law of God in Creation, the organic unity of the Bible, and the pitfalls of the Law/Gospel distinction. For the final 45 minutes we covered application of God’s law to cultural issues/controversies, such as mask mandates in church, COVID-19 responses, legalism, virtue signaling; ultimately with the assurance and hope that we have in obeying God, believing the Gospel, and loving his Law. We hope and pray this is of great benefit to you, as you seek to think as a Christian to the glory of God.
