Day 4
Session 11

3:20 PM

Nothing separates good intentions from sound economics as effectively as political rhetoric. National, state, and local leaders often conflate government action with "compassion" while portraying a belief in private solutions as callousness or indifference. This course will examine and assess contemporary examples of emotionally charged, manipulative, or factually inaccurate rhetoric from a Christian perspective. It is intended as a guide for citizens seeking to identify and compare competing truth claims about the government's role in human flourishing.
