Christian Political Judgment


Christian Political Judgment from Faith and Law on Vimeo.

How should Christians arrive at political positions? How does Biblical political judgement differ from secular judgement? Is there a place to exercise Biblical judgment at all in our modern politics? Join Dr. Micah J. Watson of Calvin University and Dr. David Corey of Baylor University for a conversation about Scripture, faith, and reasoning by natural law.

On November 19th, 2021. Baylor in Washington hosted a lively and insightful discussion on these very issues in partnership with Faith & Law.
