Faith Before Politics

Dr. James Dobson
Bob Vander Plaats
When Ronald Reagan campaigned for President of the United States, he said, "I believe this country hungers and thirsts for a spiritual revival." Nothing could be more accurate today. On today’s edition of Family Talk, guest speaker Bob Vander Plaats, President of the Iowa-based public policy organization, The Family Leader, urges citizens to engage the Body of Christ and anchor it with prayer. Bob encourages pastors to be boldly biblical and culturally relevant from the pulpit. Only then, as Hebrews 2:1 teaches us, will the church and its people be empowered to stand firm in their knowledge of truth and boldly proclaim it.
