Politically Incorrect Titus Part 11 â€ťPresidential Idolatry.â€ť
I Text: Old Covenant: (Daniel 2:31-49)
New Covenant: (Titus 3:1,2) 1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, 2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
II Doctrine: The living God of the Bible is not the servant of Men and Nations. Men and Nations are the servants of the living God who directs all of history. This is extremely insulting to all unregenerate people both great and small. Christians are to stand in the midst of a rebellious world and apply the Bible to all of life. We are to be productive citizens and obey the laws of a society that are not in direct conflict with the law of God. Godâ€™s covenant people are not endowed with â€śinalienableâ€ť rights. They are blessed with freedoms from God, and those freedoms are also taken away at certain times in History. In both circumstances Christians must seek Godâ€™s face and aim to please Him.
III Reasons: 1) God created a universe of order and hierarchy. All social units benefit from mutual cooperation among the members. Whether it is a tribe, pack, hive, or flock, obedience is a virtue to ensure the survival of a group. (Exodus 1:8-22) 2) There are rare instances when the leaders of a group must be met with opposition from the lesser magistrates within a group. The resistance must be mitigated and controlled as opposed to revolutionary. (Daniel 3:1-16; https://lessermagistrate.com/the-doct... )
IV Application: 1) Christians must resist political idolatry and seeking Men to deliver us from our current troubles. We cannot exp
Great Sermon! Pastor Rubino: I listen to you a lot. Like you, I am a Christian and love America. I am also a white man. You have a very kind unique way of bringing all cultures together under the love of Jesus Christ. We need more ministers like you. I was disappointed in 1 point you made in your sermon. I thought you seemed to equate Nazism to America Slavery. I don't agree with that. I am not a minister or theologian but I don't see any condemnation of slavery in God's Word. The Bible even admonishes slaves to obey their masters. MISTREATMENT of slaves (separation of families, beatings, lynchings, transporting like sardines, etc) is clearly evil & wicked. This has created a false narrative in my view that evil white America committed the unforgivable sin of slavery. Slavery was common. Slavery in & of itself is not condemned sir. This has fomented talk of reparations, riots, vandalism, resisting arrest hatred of white people etc. You probably think I am racist. God knows I am not. I love my black brothers & sisters. I pray for the emancipation of ALL people. To say slavery is not condemned in the pulpit these days is not PC and would be roundly condemned. You are the kind of minister who proclaims the truth boldly in spite of PC. God forgive me if I am wrong. God bless your ministry sir.
