Sabbath School for a New Generation

Among Seventh Day Adventists, Sabbath School is a time for discussion and learning. It is the belief of this site that Sabbath School should be an exciting venue for the discussion of new ideas, instead of rehashing old arguments. So welcome to a virtual Sabbath School, a Sabbath School for a new generation.

Seperation of church and state

I found an article on the Los Angeles Times website that I find to be very disturbing. It discusses organizations that are training evangelical students to be "Christian" political leaders.

Nearly every Monday for six months, as many as a dozen congressional aides — many of them aspiring politicians — have gathered over takeout dinners to mine the Bible for ancient wisdom on modern policy debates about tax rates, foreign aid, education, cloning and the Central American Free Trade Agreement.


Now this could be a good thing, but unfortunately, too much of Evangelical thought has been attached to the agenda of the Republican party. It sounds like they are searching the Bible to justify the Republican position. Insteading of working towards changing hearts, too many Christians want to legislate morality.
