You Didn’t Raise a Complaint When America Interfered With Elections Around the World…

So why are you complaining now that you think Russia may have done the same to us?  That’s the classic definition of hypocrisy.  So two passages from Scripture are offered to you:

  • You reap what you sow.
  • Do to others what you would have them do to you.

If you don’t like having it done to your vote, you should despise it when it happens to the votes of persons in other countries by your OWN government as it seeks and has sought to expand its power and influence by any means necessary.

If you weren’t offended then, don’t pretend you’re offended now.  You just don’t have the right.

Etc.

This guy sounds fantastic! I MUST go!!!

Newman Research Centre for the Bible and its Reception

The early Church father, Tertullian, once wrote: “[w]hat indeed has Athens to do with Jerusalem? What concord is there between the Academy and the Church?” (De praescriptione, vii). Sometimes, some of my students take great pleasure in reminding me of this!

It is therefore a great pleasure to welcome to our shores someone who is amply qualified to guide us through this (often tempestuous) relationship and offer to you all…
