Product Description

The political correctness police won't like this, but "I am the way, the truth and the life" applies to politics and law. One reason why people get emotional about elections and political issues is because these issues come from ideas about political theory, such as justice, ethics, and truth. These ideas, in turn, come from philosophical or theological ideas about what is the ultimate reality of the universe, which will either be theistic or atheistic. The difference between the opposing ideas is that they have different answers to the same questions of truth, ethics, and justice. God has as much right to be heard on public issues as secularism and other nontheistic ideas.
Our challenge is to understand the basis for the principles in legal and political issues and then choose the one that best corresponds to reality. The book analyzes the different systems of looking at reality to see which system best conforms to fact and reason. The author brings to the table different emotional, political, and legal issues and discusses them to determine from which worldview they come from. The conclusion is that the theistic system, and orthodox Christianity in particular, provides the best foundation for a civil society that seeks to promote liberty and virtue together.

Publisher's Description

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."
