Why do people risk their lives, and everything they hold dear, to be a part of our great nation, America? What can you do to help this country stay the greatest in the world? Join Mark Matta, and the rest of the team, as they answer these questions, and many more, in this brand new, short series of videos called, Ideas That Work!
What makes a nation great? Is it the size of a country's landmass, economy, military, natural resources, population, or is it something else? Ideas That Work, in this episode, answers this question and aspires, in future episodes, to answer many more just like it.
What principles form the foundation of America, preserving our God-given liberty, and what is their source? In this episode of Ideas That Work (IDW), we'll explore the great lengths our Founding Fathers had to go through in order to find out the principles that make our country stand in liberty; even in today's day and age! We'll also explore what these special principles are and where they come from.
In this episode, Jonathan Matta defines the word "government". What does it really mean, and do normal people use the term correctly? In this 5-min video, we'll also cover "God's Three Institutions:" (#1) Family, (#2) Church, and (#3) Civil Government. But, don't let me tell you, watch it for yourself!
If you haven't seen the last three Ideas That Work Episodes, don't worry. In the first part of IDW: Episode #4, Jonathan Matta goes over what he covered in previous episodes. This is to make sure you have these topics grounded. The second part of this episode is to show and tell you our Biblical duties toward civil government, which are essential for preserving our God-given liberty. We must:
1) PRAY for all in authority. Also, we must REPENT and humbly seek God.
2) VOTE to select those who uphold Biblical principles.
3) OCCUPY --- standing up in the arenas of business, education, and public policy --- for Jesus and His principles.
4) RESIST tyrants and laws that violate Scripture.
5) REMEMBER and TEACH our children and grandchildren God's perfect principles, and the blessings they bring to everyone.
