THE BIG QUESTION:
WHY ELIMINATE GOD FROM SOCIETY'S EVERYDAY DECISIONS?
DISSING GOD, by Wallace Auser, is written for the thinking Christian who passionately care about the political and legal direction America is taking and is tired of being asked to be an intellectual schizophrenic .This myth that a person, a legal system, a political party, or a government can be religiously neutral in today's secular progressive culture is pure nonsense.
As a practicing lawyer for over thirty years, Auser states, "God has as much right to be heard on public issues as does secularism and other non-theistic ideas."
Auser brings to the table ethical, political, and legal issues and discusses them to determine the source of these differing world views. The conclusion is that the theistic system (orthodox Christianity in particular), provides the best foundation for a civil society that seeks to promote liberty and virtue together. he wants to give Christians the tools to hold their own in a public dialogue as they base their ethical or political decisions on their theistic beliefs.
Of course, the political correctness police won't like what the author says when he references Jesus' statement by saying. "I am the way, the truth and the life' applies to society's ethics, politics, and law."
