What Should We Think About Sarah Palin As The VP Candidate In Light Of Scripture?



Here's an interview from CNN with Voddie Baucham on what to think about Sarah Palin being the new VP candidate, feminism, and the women's role. This video is called, "Voddie Baucham and Sarah Palin," and you can click here to get it for yourself. Fast-forward to 1:00 to go straight to the interview.



Here, host of Generations Radio, Kevin Swanson, talks about Sarah Palin and what we can do to raise our daughters to be the next Sarah Palin's of the world. He also interviews Scott Brown on a Biblical view of women and their roles in society, the church, and their families.


This is called, "Raisin' a Palin" and you can click here to get it for yourself.

Are you a good person?

It's great to see people stand for the Lord boldly. Thank you for sharing this video.

I normally have high regard for Voddie Baucham and happen to disagree with him on this particular issue. I understand why he's coming out so strong. It is true and unfortunate, that there IS an idolatry of politics among many "Christians" in America--and that feminism has done very little good.

(I however do not view Palin as a "typical" Republican or a feminist.)

But just as when Eve sinned, Adam got the blame. (It's called "The Fall of Adam" after all)--> more Christian men need to put the blame on themselves for their failures. More Christian men need to peer through the ages and examine where MEN have failed their familes and their women, where MEN have abused their power and become a tool for Satan rather than a light for Jesus Christ.

Also, if MEN are not willing to step up to public service, then they should not waste their time condemning and judging those who do--Republicans and Democrats alike. Romans 13 applies regardless of who is in power.

However, the host of the radio show linked down on the post below seems to like throwing out names like Moses and names Paul--yet seems to know very little of Christ, proving whatever he learned from Moses and Paul to be useless. His attitude resembles that of a Pharisee ready to throw the first stone.

I pray that God reveals to him as he did for me, that the fruit of the faith is not self-righteousness and doctrinal clarity, but resemblance to Jesus Christ. Doctrine without works is dead.

A true Calvinistic belief in God's Sovereignty should inspire in us absolute humility within one's heart--not worldly, chauvinistic arrogance resembling that of a pagan Roman patriarch than of a slave of Christ.

We as Christians should speak from a spirit of brokenness over our OWN sins. We should be BOLD in our mercy towards all man, BOLD about our proclamation of Jesus Christ as Lord.

Most importantly, our LIVES should reflect the TRUTH in love and deed. Jesus did not spend his days babbling away against fools in debates---please read the Gospels for clarification.

And...

What if I want to raise my daughter to be a Queen Esther or a Deborah or a Queen of Sheba or a saleswoman like Lydia? Or a Phoebe and Priscilla?

What if I want to raise my daughter to be a Mary Magdalene? Or the woman from Bethany who poured perfume on Jesus' head from her alabaster jar?

I urge people to meditate on 1 Corinthians 13.

(oops me again) I cited Romans 13 as an example how we are to respect and pray for those in civil leadership (and for their salvation!) but I think a better chapter would be 1 Timothy 2:

1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (NKJV)

Maybe instead of Pharasaically condemning this sinful "American empire" and bashing all its leaders, we would be better in our attempts to convict our fellow unbelieving citizens of their need for Christ by living out instructions such as these. Thereby advancing His eternal kingdom.

Not to mention, with regard to temporal concerns: though a persecuted minority, and never in positions of civil power, the 1st/2nd/ (early) Century Christians radically shaped and influenced the pagan societies of which they were apart.

Cultures where women were treated and abused like sex objects and slavery was rampant, became transformed and "Christianized."
