Dr. Jim Denison Reports:
“You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
There have essentially been two forms of governance across human history: autocracy (“the rule of one”) and democracy (“the rule of the people”).
We are watching the former on display in China, where Xi Jinping has claimed an unprecedented third five-year term as chief of the Communist Party and surrounded himself with loyalist officials. And in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, where Vladimir Putin has declared martial law in areas he illegally annexed and is now building defensive lines to deter Ukraine’s advance.
We are watching the latter on display in the UK, where former chancellor Rushi Sunak looks set to become Britain’s next prime minister after former prime minister Boris Johnson pulled out of the race late yesterday evening. And in Pakistan, where an election commission has disqualified former prime minister Imran Khan from holding public office.
But the political issue that strikes closest to home for Americans is, of course, the subpoena issued by the January 6 committee on Friday. The committee is demanding that former president Donald Trump produce documents it has requested by November 4 and sit for a deposition on November 14. This is just the second time in modern US history that Congress has taken such a step.
FGGAM Shares a Biblical Worldview Everyday:
“The Biblical worldview says there is a God—One who is personal, powerful and caring—who created the world and everything in it. It states unequivocally that man is created in God’s image, living in essence as God’s co-regent over creation. Mankind—born and unborn, rich and poor, able and disabled—has intrinsic worth. Almighty God is a sovereign God, ruler over nations, states, empires, and governments. He is to be worshiped and obeyed through the precepts and principles revealed in His infallible Word. He not only exists, but He is sovereign over all of history according to His wisdom and purposes, and He is intimately involved in every aspect of life.”
