TODAY’S GUEST – Christopher Cone serves as President and CEO of AgathonEDU Educational Group, and leads Colorado Biblical University and has served as a President (Vyrsity, Colorado Biblical University, Calvary University, Tyndale Theological Seminary), a Chief Academic Officer (Southern California Seminary), and as a Research Professor (Vyrsity, Colorado Biblical University, Calvary University, Southern California Seminary). He is the author and general editor of more than fifteen books, including Authentic Social Justice, and Priority in Biblical Hermeneutics and Theological Method

We discuss a few points about Bible interpretation and the  proper view of the Scriptures regarding individual civil liberties. It’s important to understand competing views on religious freedom and be able to refute them from God’s word.

“God first provides a platform wherein we can understand what He has said and what He intends (epistemology), then He has revealed to us the realities of which He wants us to be aware… Once we understand the realities and have confidence that we have understood Him, we can understand what we should do about all this (ethics), and how we should interact with each other (social political thought); [W]ith the literal grammatical historical understanding of Scripture, we end up with similar conclusions as Locke, Smith, and the writers of the Declaration – these who recognize that all humanity possesses unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of fulfillment and blessing by knowing God and utilizing that which He has given to us.” Dr. Cone
