Our look into the 2016 presidential election continues with our second and final segment with Tom Hoefling of America’s Party. Last week we spoke mostly about Tom’s passion to defend the rights of the unborn. This week we learn more about America’s Party and the differences between it and the Constitution Party. We also chat about Christianity’s relationship to our American concept of freedom and the so-called faith of Donald Trump. Don’t worry, of course we had to ask, is a vote for Tom Hoefling really a vote for Hillary Clinton?

Should Christians Forgive No Matter What? – Should Christians forgive someone even if he’s not sorry? Or does true forgiveness require repentance and a desire to reconcile?

6 Reasons We Shouldn’t Freak Out over Word Variations in our Modern Translations – In reality, there is no such thing as a strictly “literal” translation, since all translations involve interpretation, all translations must render Greek and Hebrew grammar in ways that are understandable in English, and all translations have places that are “functional” in nature. At many points a literal rendering of Greek and Hebrew word order, for instance, would sound like gibberish in English! – George Guthrie
Some Things You Should Know About Christians Who Struggle With Anxiety – This is the anchor of our soul: That our status before God is secure because it’s not dependent on our turbulent feelings, it’s dependent on the finished work of Christ, and when God looks at us, even when we’re being smothered by a wet anxiety blanket, he sees a beloved child, perfectly clothed in the full righteousness of Jesus Christ. – Adam Ford
The Book of Proverbs and a Winning Strategy for Candidate Trump – So, here’s my counsel: Start every day by reading one chapter from Proverbs out loud, together with your closest staff or family or advisers, if possible. Then note what Proverbs says about wise people and fools, examine your conduct and your words in light of what you read, and then ask God for wisdom. – Michael Brown
