Conservative? What kind are you anyway?

What you are about to read is not a political statement … It is a personal position…

I grieve that the term “compassionate conservative” has been maligned unjustly (it is a good term)! I must tell you, more than being a “fiscal conservative” or a “political conservative” I am a “social conservative.” I believe the Bible teaches it! I read the following passage today during my time of “coffee with the Lord” and embrace wholeheartedly what it teaches…

“God has taken His place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods He holds judgment: ‘How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.'” (From Psalm 82:1-4 ESV)

I jotted this personal message in the margin of my Bible by those verses today: “Where there is genuine need, I want to be generous and do my best to meet it! Where there is real injustice, I want to defend those who have been wronged and do what I can to advocate justice for them. Where sin is rampant, I want to live a godly life and share the life-transforming Gospel. Why? Because the Bible teaches it, God expects it, my relationship with Him demands it, and the heart within me that He has transformed desires it!
