Evangelical truth from a black evangelical rooted not in "biblical values" but in biblical truth. There once was a time when biblical values and biblical truth were congruent. That no longer is the case. Biblical values in the West have become so closely aligned and narrowly defined by the politics of the right, that many have become disillusioned, confused, and worse have and are turning away from God and the church. Dorothy speaks to the issues of the day through the lenses of scripture in truth and love.

    What The Fight Is REALLY About!

    What The Fight Is REALLY About!

    Politics and governing are not the same. Two systems. The world system of politics is under the authority, rule and control of the god of this world - Satan. The other, government or governing, is of the God of the Bible. The clash of kingdoms.

    Not preached on much today but impacts all of life. Every aspect of life on the face of the planet.I painstakingly in the kickoff of my new season explain the difference and why we are seeing what we are seeing in the political arena today.

    What the fight is really about. Satan hates us all. EVERY human, black, white, brown, rich or poor, gay or straight... but will use us all to get what he wants. Power and absolute control.

    How is it working for any of us? It isn't. Evil never does. Not for the rich, middle class or poor. Every human is his target.

    "What the Fight is REALLY About."

    Integrity: Every Leader's Saving Grace

    Integrity: Every Leader's Saving Grace

    The foundation of trust is integrity. People follow leaders they trust. Integrity is every leader's saving grace. If you have it, you will never be booted from Congress, your town council or school board for lack of character. Character and integrity are two sides of the same coin and one ensures, assures and insures the other. Integrity is the only coin we get to spend with every decision we make. It spends for us, spins for us and speaks for us!

This episode kicks off the new season of the Governing God's Way Podcast, hosted by our Founder and President, Dorothy Burton. Timely. Relevant. Challenging us all as leaders to examine ourselves and how we are representing Jesus Christ and the Kingdom in public space.
