We are experiencing unprecedented political confusion.   There are all kinds of opinions, but no solutions coming forth from the world’s system.  The Bible has the solutions for every area of life, including American government and politics. Biblical Civics 101 teaches the solutions, to break through the confusion – and plant us on a solid trajectory of liberty, for our children’s future.  And it starts with the individual.
