Item Description...
Overview
The political correctness police won't like this, but "I am the way, the truth and the life" applies to politics and law. One reason why people get emotional about elections and political issues is because these issues come from ideas about political theory, such as justice, ethics, and truth. These ideas, in turn, come from philosophical or theological ideas about what is the ultimate reality of the universe, which will either be theistic or atheistic. The difference between the opposing ideas is that they have different answers to the same questions of truth, ethics, and justice. God has as much right to be heard on public issues as secularism and other nontheistic ideas. Our challenge is to understand the basis for the principles in legal and political issues and then choose the one that best corresponds to reality. The book analyzes the different systems of looking at reality to see which system best conforms to fact and reason. The author brings to the table different emotional, political, and legal issues and discusses them to determine from which worldview they come from. The conclusion is that the theistic system, and orthodox Christianity in particular, provides the best foundation for a civil society that seeks to promote liberty and virtue together.

Publishers Description

THE BIG QUESTION:

WHY ELIMINATE GOD FROM SOCIETY'S EVERYDAY DECISIONS?

DISSING GOD, by "Wallace Auser," is written for the thinking Christian who passionately care about the political and legal direction America is taking and is tired of being asked to be an intellectual schizophrenic .This myth that a person, a legal system, a political party, or a government can be religiously neutral in today's secular progressive culture is pure nonsense.

As a practicing lawyer for over thirty years, Auser states, "God has as much right to be heard on public issues as does secularism and other non-theistic ideas."

Auser brings to the table ethical, political, and legal issues and discusses them to determine the source of these differing world views. The conclusion is that the theistic system (orthodox Christianity in particular), provides the best foundation for a civil society that seeks to promote liberty and virtue together. he wants to give Christians the tools to hold their own in a public dialogue as they base their ethical or political decisions on their theistic beliefs.

Of course, the political correctness police won't like what the author says when he references Jesus' statement by saying. "I am the way, the truth and the life' applies to society's ethics, politics, and law."

Thought Provoking Questions for the Thinking Christian  Oct 18, 2007
In "Dissing God: The Myth of Religious Neutrality in a Secular Progressive Culture" Wallace Auser urges the reader to explore the two prevalent perceptions of reality and how these impact the laws, ethics, justice, and morality of our culture.

In his discussion of separation of religion and government Auser asserts that any system of basic fundamentals and precepts is religion. Secularism, for instance is a non religious religion. Auser reminds the reader that religion and theism have a role in law and in government, and in the foundation of our nation.

Auser's studies in philosophy and theology enable him to fairly examine a comparison of these two fields of study in light of the role they play in determining one's beliefs. In a discussion of morality, rights, and duties Auser concludes, "The more freedom societies have, the more they need virtue."

Auser introduces the difficulty faced when ideas of theology and philosophy inter play with civil society. Tension and conflicting claims are prevalent at a time when it is an essential truth that for a nation to function the people need to be on the same basic theoretical wavelength.

Whether dealing with absolutes and relativism or on the essence of being human Auser writes with conviction, clarity, and logic. He presents concerns, about abortion, family and marriage, marriage and homosexual relationships, and justice and righteous indignation with fervor, as he calls the reader to higher standards and more responsible citizenship.

"Dissing God" asks the question, "Why eliminate God from Society's Everyday Decisions?" Wallace Auser presents his case: "God has as much right to be heard on public issues as does secularism and other non-theistic ideas." Auser's writing is strong, convincing, and articulate. "Dissing God" adds important dialog to the discussion on issues of ethics and moral philosophy prevalent in our culture today.
