SECULAR CONSERVATISM AND CHRISTIANITY AT THE SAME TIME IS NONSENSE

"...justifying particular governmental policies by using Christ's words that were intended for his followers and the church is a hermeneutical error and ignores the Scriptures' jurisdictional instructions for the family, church and government." — David J. Sanders, columnist, Stephens Media, Little Rock, Arkansas; "Opinion: A Christian and a conservative."

Well, no Christian is to "support" the coercive secular government, period. Also, by "the Scriptures' jurisdictional instructions for the family, church and government," it is no stretch here to say that David here is referring primarily to the Pauline, with which I do not hold.

David lays claim to being a secular conservative and a Christian at the same time. It's nonsense.

While I say to people that if they are going to continue making the same error that is coercive government, they may as well at least try to be fairer and more just. However, I never tell them to settle for coercive government but rather to go all the way to Heaven. David's conservatism not only doesn't do that, his ideology tells him to embrace the less fair and less just.
