Rule of Law or the Rule of Man
- 2013Jan 22
John Adams said we are a nations of laws and not of men.
He was responding to enlightenment intellectuals by going all the way back to Aristotle who said that "it is more proper that the law should govern rather than man."
Our Consitution presuposes self-evident truths and the laws of nature and nature's God.
It is only the Natural Law of God that gives us the freedom to avoid the consequences of sin - my sin and yours.

Debates on First and Second Amendments
- 2013Jan 22
Why are conservatives and Christians more up in arms (pun intended) over the compromise of the Second Amendment than they are over the compromise of the First?
We seem to be ready to go to war at the loss of our right to own a gun but yet we sit back quietly at the loss of our right to worship our God as we see fit.
Restrict high capacity magazines and clips and we say “over my dead body.” Restrict the Body of Christ and we say little to nothing.
Attack Guns on the floor of congress and all hell breaks loose. Attack God on the floor of the Dem National Convention and we elect the party that does it.
Can we not see that without God, government always steps in to fill the vacuum and where there is more government there is always less freedom?
Without God we will not have the freedom to own our guns.

Calling Good Evil and Evil Good
- 2013Jan 03
Writer says the solution to school shootings is to hate the hateful, be intollerant of the intollerant, and even to kill the killers... http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/01/02/liberal-ex-columnist-death-threats-published-in-des-moines-register/
This article from the Des Moines Register is yet another example of the deception and logical darkness that plagues the human mind when it is no longer governed by Common Sense, Objecitve Truth and Natural Law.
M. Scott Peck called such two-faced duplicity "the diabolical human mind."
The Apostle Paul called it a "reprobate mind."
And the prophet Isaiah called such logcial incoherence "calling evil good and good evil, darkness light and light darkness, bitter sweet and sweet bitter.."
He also gave a warning: "Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight... The Lord's anger burns... He lifts up the banner of distant nations... [who] will roll over the land like a roaring sea."
Calling sin righteous and righteousness sin will always bear consequences....
