Romans 13 discussions

Posted by: | Comments (3)

Over at the Christian Libertarian Facebook Group, we have amazing discussions pretty much all the time. A common question, especially amongst newcomers to the group, is how to interpret Romans 13. Scott B. has assembled links and dates to all of these discussions, which I’d like to share with you here. (You also can read my exegesis and discussion of the passage here.) I hope this encourages you to join this group and become a part of the conversation!

Links to posts/discussions from the Christian libertarians group on Romans 13:

From a member of the Christian libertarian facebook group:

I’m not sure who created this group, but I want to commend them for it and the members that make it what it is. This group has been very educational for me compared to other libertarian groups and it has really helped me understand how I am libertarian and christian at the same time. I read one comment on here that really stood out to me. It said, "I am libertarian because I am a christian." Love it! Keep it up!

Well, as the creator of the group, this sort of comment really warms my heart. The discussion that takes place is incredibly important and formative for all involved. We argue, we debate, we live and learn. If you’re not part of it, you really ought to be. Join today!

News of the Week (coup edition)

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Norman’s away this week in Las Vegas as a Libertarian Party delegate at their national convention, and is leaving it up to me to do News of the Week. Incidentally, Norman has been working with Lee Wrights’s campaign for the LP presidential nomination for some time.

Biggest item? Well, Norman is gone, so that means I’m in charge (at least until he approves my article for  submission).

Most absurd item of the week: Playmobil now has a TSA Checkpoint set for kids. (Short video here.) Now your kids can pretend to be molesters TSA agents, and/or parents can use this as a tool to encourage obedience to the State.

Ron Paul fans will be happy to know (if they don’t already) that Ron Paul has accumulated a considerable number of delegates for the GOP Tampa convention. Is his “Moneyball” strategy workingRachel Maddow (ironically) seems to be the only cable news host covering this with any level of honesty. Fox”News” seems to concede at times, but largely ignores Paul’s progress. Could this be 1920 GOP convention all over again?

My newest article is the most important article you’ll ever read (this week). Click here for it.

Libertarian Christians (and Norman) getting some positive attention on Infowars here, compliments Laurence Vance. (HT2 Libertarians (New) Facebook Group member Nick).

I cannot stress enough how much Jeffrey Tucker’s writings on Laissez-Faire Blog encourage me every day. While writing about state-related issues, Tucker has the uncanny ability to see it through the eyes of somebody hopeful toward the future through innovation and commerce. If you don’t have Laissez-Faire Bookstore on your RSS feed already, please do so.

A while back, I wrote post called How to Connect with Other Christian Libertarians. Unfortunately, some of that information is now out of date, and I really should just write a new post highlighting the best means I have found for connecting people together online.

But for the time being, there is a more pressing matter to which we must attend. For some time, the old Christian Libertarian Facebook Group has been without an admin due to the previous admin deleting his Facebook account without adding another admin to the group. Without an admin, this group was incapable of being upgraded to the new Facebook Groups format, and is now scheduled to be archived. I believe this means the data will still be there, but nothing new can be posted.

In response, I have started a NEW Christian libertarian Facebook group, and I hope that you’ll take a moment to follow the link and join. It’s an open group and free to join (although I think you have to be “approved” upon request). Also, feel free to add your friends, family, etc.

Christian libertarianism is a growing movement, and social networking is going to be an essential part of making sure that people know each other and can keep in contact. The previous Facebook group had over 900 members in it, and I hope we can more than double that number the next year. Please join the new group and spread the word!

UPDATE: To think, I would speak of Facebook and not remind people to “like” the LibertarianChristians.com Fan Page! Shame on me!

If you Facebook an LCC writer…

Posted by: | Comments (0)

… then please tell us who you are! I’ve been getting a lot of friend requests on Facebook recently and sometimes I have no idea who the person is. I love to connect with readers on Facebook, but sometimes it’s tricky to figure out who’s who.

So please, if you want to friend me, do me a favor and introduce yourself as an LCC reader! Much appreciated. Oh, and don’t forget to “like” the LCC fan page. That’s a good thing to do too…
