Does A Political Candidate’s Religious Beliefs Determine If I Should Vote For Them?

Episode 539 Show Notes 

From the Show

As November approaches, ask yourself, “where is my confidence and my trust?” That does not mean you should not be involved in these discussions and through this pursue the good of your neighbor, but don’t for a minute think that God’s kingdom depends on who the next president is. The kingdom of God isn’t that fragile.

—Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

1. I’ve noticed a lot of books in the Bible are named after people who supposedly wrote them even if the books never claims that. The Gospels are an example of this. I’m wondering why this wouldn’t affect our trust in Biblical inerrancy?

2. How do we respond to movies that are promoted as Christian and biblical, but contain things that are obviously not biblical?

3. In Genesis 11 we are told that God confused the language of the peoples who were trying to build the Tower of Babel up to heaven. Does this mean that cultural and ethnic diversity resulted from God’s curse? What would this mean for heaven when God sets everything right again?

4. Should my vote change depending on what a candidate’s religious beliefs are?

5. I’ve heard a lot about salvation by grace that excludes our good works, but if God didn’t want our good works, why did he give us the law? In Leviticus 18:5 we read, “I am the Lord your God. You shall therefore keep my statutes and my rules; if a person does them, he shall live by them: I am the Lord.” Doesn’t this mean that life comes through fulfilling the law?
