“Is There a Christian Position on _____(Fill in Any Current Public Policy Issue)___”

February 22, 2013:  Stephen Monsma

In his lecture, Dr. Monsma argued that although there is not one, true Christian position on public policy issues, yet by using certain basic Christian principles, a careful assessment of facts, and prudence one can arrive at policy positions that are shaped, or molded, by our Christian faith. And we as Christians have a duty to attempt to do so. The lecture in part drew upon Dr.Monsma’s recent Apple iBook, Healing for a Broken World: Christian Perspectives on Public Policy.
