The Christian Principle of American Political Union
April 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT$10
Presented by Dr. Rodriguez. Christianity produces civil or political union in a different way than the world does. It produces union based upon spiritual unity. Congregational clergyman Leonard Bacon observed that the early churches “became a community united, not by external bonds, but by the vital force of distinctive ideas and principles.” The unity of believers eventually works its way from the individual sphere to the family, church and civil spheres.
Join us Monday, April 15 at 7:00 pm for our next Lessons in Liberty presentation on the Seven Principles of Liberty, Principle number 7 “The Christian Principle of American Political Union” with Dr. Rodd Rodriguez.
Dr. Rodriguez graduated from Regent University School of Law and Government. While at Regent, Dr. Rodriguez became aware of the works of Verna Hall and Rosalie Slater and the Principle Approach to American Christian education. He quickly developed a passion for this approach that teaches one to reason from the Biblical bedrock principles of a subject to its particulars. The connection between Biblical theology, character, education, liberty and government led him to explore this relationship further. In 2009, he received his Ph.D. in Civil Science from Andrew Jackson University, School of Government with a focus on the nexus between Christianity, the West, individual rights and liberty.
Dr. Rodriguez served as Principal at New Covenant Christian School in Plymouth, Massachuttes and as an adjunct professor at Eastern Nazarene College. Today, he is part of the teaching staff at Stonebridge School in Chesapeake, Virginia with hopes to continue to expand the influence of the Principle Approach and the message of God’s liberty to individuals, families, churches, and nations. Rodd and his wife Karen have been married for 28 years. They are dedicated parents to their children Josh and Christa.
All Lessons in Liberty lecture series are presented live in our classroom at the Hall-Slater Library or live streaming online. A charge of $10 (individual or family) includes the live presentation, video-recorded session, and handouts.
