If Scripture is authoritative, it should guide not only religion on Sundays, but politics, economics, and academics the other six days of the week. That’s the premise of the Saint Louis Statement, a position paper issued by some friends of mine.

They were concerned about the many Christian schools and churches that buy into relativist, collectivist, and leftist ideas in disregard of biblical teachings to the contrary. We can all think of examples. (Colorado Christian University, sponsor of this blog, thankfully is not one of them; not in the least.)

The statement, entitled “The Bible, the Republic, the Economy, and the Academy,” is posted here. Those of us already listed as signers welcome comments and discussion, as well as anyone wishing to add his or her signature.
