The Nomination of Elena Kagan: What Questions Should Christians Be Asking?

With the summer quickly approaching, Americans ready themselves for another Supreme Court nomination battle.  Today, President Obama nominated the current Solicitor General of the United States, Elena Kagan, to be the next Supreme Court Justice.  Given the crucial role the Supreme Court now plays in the shaping of American culture and life, Kagan’s nomination is one that Christians must take seriously.  On today’s program, Dr. Mohler discusses this nomination by challenging Christian citizens to take seriously their responsibility to ask the right questions.  Of all citizens, Christians are those who carry the greatest responsibility to live faithfully before God and submissively under their leaders.  And, in the case of Supreme Court nominations, faithfulness before God requires Christians to thoughtfully engage their leaders with questions and arguments that will lead to laws that increasingly reflect the character of God.
