The Dominion Mandate Meets Positive Law

Jan 26, 2024

The proposed federal “Parental Rights and Responsibilities Act, and similar legislation in the states, may look like it is in furtherance of the dominion mandate, because parents have God-given rights and a God-given jurisdiction in relation to their children. Today David explains why there could be nothing further from the truth than that assumption.

Looking at the Dominion Mandate in Real Time

Jan 19, 2024

In recent years, the “dominion mandate” in Genesis 1 has come alive for many Christians. Today David begins a three-week series that looks at various considerations for its fulfillment. This week, he looks at its application in the context of abortion legislation, and the divisions it has exposed among Christians. Has this situation exposed something that must precede taming the wilderness?

How I Would Analyze and Vote on Upcoming Abortion Legislation

Jan 11, 2024

Today David explains why, if he were still a state Senator, he would evaluate forthcoming legislation in several states that would subject pregnant women to a criminal sanction through the prism of Matthew 6:33 and how he would do it. Then he will give the remarks he would provide in a legislative hearing. Finally, he closes with a challenge to Christians on both sides of the issue.

Re-Evaluating the Pro-Life Establishment’s Approach

Jan 5, 2024

Recent videos by EndAbortionNow have focused on two approaches often taken by mainline pro-life organizations to justify their approach to abortion legislation. David looks at those approaches, as well as his own in times past, to see if they align with the gospel. He points to aspects of the gospel that would have Christians re-calibrate their perspective on this and any number of other political and electoral issues.

Do Some Abortion Abolitionist Have a Gospel Problem?

Dec 29, 2023

A new video by EndAbortionNow.com asserts that women who make an abortion decision should be subject to criminal penalties. Some in the video contend that not doing so denies to her the gospel. Today, David uses Sinclair Ferguson’s The Whole Christ and Robert Haldane’s Exposition of Romans to consider whether such thinking reveals a problem with our understanding of the gospel.

Applying the Christmas Story to the Abortion Abolition Movement’s Proposed Law

Dec 22, 2023

Last week another video was released by EndAbortionNow.com “revealing the main issue” that “is keeping abortion alive in this nation.” Surprised by what it was, David puts in under the microscope of the good news that is the Christmas story, asking if the new law the movement proposes can be the death knell to abortion in our nation?

What’s Missing from Christian Political Engagement?

Dec 15, 2023

Fundamental theological truths about God are generally considered unimportant to Christian political engagement. David explains why that is the problem. This episode will help you evaluate whether the politicians and policy and legal organizations you support can make a difference.

A 1938 SCOTUS Decision and the Rise of “Nominal Christianity”

Dec 8, 2023

A decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1938 rejected the Christian understanding of the world and, therefore, it changed our understanding of law. David will explain the decision and give examples from his lobbying work to demonstrate how it helped change Christianity. It gave rise to what he calls “nominal Christianity.”

Thinking Through the Pastor Jeff Durbin-Speaker Mike Johnson Abortion Law Differences

Dec 1, 2023

Last week pastor Jeff Durbin of Arizona released a video that “revealed” new U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson’s opposition to a bill two years ago in Louisiana that would have treated the unborn as persons entitled to equal protection of the laws. Today David wades into the controversy to examine what kind of cosmological thinking may lie behind it with the hope that God might use the situation to edify and build up in love the Body of Christ.

What Arguing for a Biblical Cosmology in Law Looks Like

Nov 17, 2023

David takes the issue of abortion pending before the Supreme Court in Iowa and contrasts the way in which the pro-life cause was argued by the state’s attorney general to the way he presented the argument in a brief he wrote filed on behalf of pro-family organizations in 32 states. You’ll see the difference between just trying to win and trying to win in a way that restores the cosmology that produces a right to life.
