Do you have to be “smart” to be president? And does having academic education equal being “smart” — or does it make you a good leader?  What was the greatest sin of the false prophets?  What does that mean for us today?

Hour 1:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: I am not putting my trust in a political savior.  I am not looking for one man or one woman to turn everything around.  I am looking for a President who will be a God-fearing individual, full of moral integrity, an inspiring leader who knows how to lead, and someone with a good head on their shoulders.

Hour 2:

Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Those of us who lead or speak publicly, who have a platform and influence others, have a great accountability to God and to man.  If you want to go to sleep with a clean conscience, tell the truth, regardless of the cost or consequence.  Tell the truth with love and a good heart, but do not compromise.

Jesus, Christians and Politics online article by Frank Turek:

The United States Congress was in a rare joint session. All 435 representatives and 100 senators were in attendance, and the C-SPAN-TV cameras were rolling. The members were gathered together to hear a speech by a descendant of George Washington. But what they thought would be a polite speech of patriotic historical reflections quickly turned into a televised tongue-lashing. With a wagging finger and stern looks, Washington’s seventh-generation grandson declared, […]

Country a Mess? Blame the Church online article by Frank Turek:

As our great country accelerates its slide into economic and moral Hell, be careful whom you blame. The present boldness of liberals and timidity of conservatives are only the secondary causes. Much of the blame can be placed at the foot of the church. […]

Separation of Church and State with Joseph Infranco [MP3 CD]: The concept of “the separation of church and state” has been totally turned upside down in our day to the point that many Americans are calling for freedom from religion rather than freedom of religion – and our religious freedoms are under fire like never before. Christian students on campuses have been told they cannot publicly share their faith; atheists are taking legal action against the National Day of Prayer; the courts have decided that homosexual rights trump religious rights. This course will give you an understanding of the real meaning of the separation of church and state, providing you with an important update of what is happening in the courts today and helping you to understand your legal rights as a believer.

  2. A man doesn’t have to be the brightest bulb intelectually to be a president to get my vote though I do like to see a president shine.

    I hope to hear a president continually give God praise in his speeches. If he doesn’t quit doing that I think he will be on his way to following Jesus.

    I would rather vote for a man who is on his way to following Jesus than to vote for a man who is not, regardless of his intellect.

    If a man will follow Christ, all his sins that he commits will be revealed, all the ones he hasn’t repented of, all the mistakes he made and wasn’t aware of, and I suppose many of those of his past that have no bearing on today, those that are made known by his enemies. But I would rather vote for a man that is on his way to following Christ than for a man who is not.

    How can I tell except I listen? I suppose I can tell by what a man does though not necessarily by what he has done.

    I believe a president should be a man who knows the world can run just fine without him, a man who knows that God works through everyone in some way or another, that he needs constant help from him as well as from others, that he can call on anyone he wants to for advice, information, and counsel, that he should want to surround himself with those that do have the knowledge that’s needed to make important decisions, and yes, I would like to see a president that has a godly vision for America, one that will restore her and help her get back to God who made her great.

  4. I imagine a President, who, in addition to holding leadership and related character qualities, is not ashamed to bend his knees before God, in Christ, among other contributions covered by the media.
