The thesis of this book is simple: Christians should not follow the agenda of the donkey or the elephant but, rather, the agenda of the Lamb. The agendas of the two leading political parties in the United States are not consistent with God’s plan for individuals or the country. Rather, the way our country and its people can best be served is by meeting at the nexus of the cross. If we, especially Christians who seek to follow Christ as closely as humanly possible, establish a vertical relationsh ...more

Sammy Rodriguez doesn't shy away from the political stance that aligns with the gospel. Of COURSE it doesn't align with either political party, it's the agenda of the Lamb. He could easily start a political party with the agenda and policies described in this book. And I'd vote for its candidates with great faithfulness. Right on.

The opening of this book is super compelling, and I'm on board with this book's central message--especially as it's articulated in the first few chapters. Christians must indeed live at the nexus of the the cross, missing neither the vertical (relationship to God) and the horizontal (sacrificial service to humanity). That being said, I do think Rodriguez missteps a bit with his extended lion/lamb analogy beginning in Chapter 10. In scripture, Satan is seen as a lion (roaring because he's toothle ...more

My introduction to the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), came by way of YouTube a couple of years ago when I watched the rousing six-minute speech he gave at Ebenezer Baptist Church on MLK Day in 2011 (earlier this year, he became the first Latino speaker to deliver the keynote address for that same event). In that 2011 speech – which I’ve embedded at the end of this post – Rodriguez sought to reassure his audience, saying with a t ...more

“During the early years of the Republic, an even more intense battle was being waged between the pro-slavery forces and the Christians who opposed them. Although slavery has existed almost everywhere since the fall, abolitionism is a purely Christian invention. Thomas Jefferson, although not a particularly religious person, worried, as Evarts did, that America had violated its divine contract in its tolerance of slavery. As a slave owner, Jefferson had good reason to feel anxious. He wrote in his book, Notes on the State of Virginia: God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” 1 likes
“God is not afraid of our inquiries. The question we must ask ourselves is whether we are we afraid of his. If questioning exposes truth, let us question. A faith that is threatened by doctrinal inquiries and evaluation of certain tenets is no faith at all. A faith that blindly demands belief subjugates the very inquisitive soul that God gave us. What is more, it disqualifies itself from being a faith and more accurately falls under the category of a cult. True faith welcomes questions; false faiths discourage and prohibit them.” 1 likes
