When big government becomes a false god it puts true worship out of tune Joel Belz
For a pretty long time, it's been a pretty good fit. Three significant groups of U.S. citizens—with a lot of important issues in common, but by no means everything—have formed a political alliance that even in recent times has sometimes seemed unstoppable.
The three groups are fiscal conservatives, social conservatives, and those who believe in a strong national defense. If you want to oversimplify, you can point to (1) limited government; (2) pro-life and pro-family; and (3) muscular military.
To that end, let me recommend a good, if admittedly secular, starting point. The "limited government" segment of the trio has no more eloquent—or funnier—spokesman than Grover Norquist, author of a new book bluntly titled Leave Us Alone. Norquist offers a pretty comprehensive catalog of the causes important to folks who fear big government. He helpfully spells out who his allies should be: taxpayers, businessmen and women, Second Amendment voters, homeschoolers, property-rights activists and homeowners, communities of faith and parents' rights, the ownership society, the police, and the military.
But that needs to be spelled out—in almost exegetical detail—with one specific issue after another. We need to demonstrate in day-to-day terms how easily big government becomes the false god that the true God of the Bible so regularly warns against.
