Jay Ashcroft on Principles & Values



Is government here for us, or are we to serve government?

[On Audacy Radio]: "I think we really need to decide, is government there to serve the people, to create an environment where the people can be successful, where they can be free to make their own decisions? Or the people here to serve the government?" Ashcroft said.

Bible calls us to obedience, not to accomplishment

One of the themes of the Bible that I think is so often overlooked is that we are not called to accomplish anything in the Bible; we are called to obedience. God will give us what we should do. Politics can be a very arrogant business. You think you know what you're doing. It's all about you. I think we all fight against that. The concern is: how do I make sure that I'm looking to Him for guidance and His wisdom instead of, quote, "my own"?
