I posted an absolutely mind-blowing post and ONLY got four comments about some knock out truths; I can say it was mind-blowing because I didn't write it. The head master at Briarwood School, Barrett Mosbacker, did.
I bombarded you with a much too lengthy post. So, for your ease, I have chosen a portion which I hope you will read, savor, and begin racking your brains for some salt shakers to hop into the political mix.
"As a practical point, the development of distinctly Christian think tanks, which combine the skills of theologians from various orthodox persuasions, the expertise of Christian scholars from many different disciplines, and the practical insight of the policy analyst and those experienced in the "realities" of the political process would be of inestimable value in assisting the Christian community in its role as salt and light.
Rather than bemoaning what is wrong, we are responsible to teach our students how to think biblically and how to apply biblically informed thinking to specific policy issues. This should be an exciting and very positive endeavor with the goal of working to see "see God's will done on earth as it is in heaven."
