There is reason to hope. The new coronavirus cases for the past seven to ten days remains flat, and several respected doctors say we may be reaching a turning point. We’ll know soon—so long as we don’t lose focus. Even if we’ve reached the peak, there are over 300,000 people who are sick. Some of them will not recover. Our prayers should be with them, their families, and those caring for them.

This article examines the link between leadership and fear, using our reactions to current events. The flu occurs every year, with different strains and virility. Past methods for controlling it include; isolation, quarantine, good hygiene, disinfectants, and restricting public gatherings. These limit transmission. They are common sense and should be voluntarily observed in a free society.

A friend recently sent me a link to a blog article titled This is Worth Reading. I don’t know the person who wrote it, but that doesn’t matter. The post lays out a reasonable line of thought expressed by many liberals today. It also deserves a reasoned response. I’ll attempt to provide one in my own small way, addressed to the original author, whoever it is. While addressed to them, it is not about them. Rather, it is about the ideas they appear to hold.

This week’s events display some of modern liberalism’s fruit. I’m speaking specifically about the impeachment process underway in Washington, and Virginia Governor Northam’s actions surrounding the recent lobby day on the Martin Luther King holiday. Both events reveal the liberal perversion of principles such as stewardship. Stewardship is important for a number of reasons, and this short series explores that topic.

Man must discern good from evil. It is part of how Man fulfills his purpose. Original sin occurred when Man turned from God by disobeying and eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Not taking a bite from the fruit, but choosing to take that bite. The action was only the end. Man's will and choice were the means. The means underlying our actions matter.

This upcoming year is likely to be a rough one. Our basic rights are under attack. This article is a repost of one written a year ago. We will likely see the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) passed by the legislature and signed by the governor this time. Like it or not, we are in a war-one of ideas. Legislation like the ERA represent one thread of ideas, a pagan thread. The other comes from Judeo-Christian principles derived from God's word in the Bible.

The following is an excerpt covering the writing of John Locke from my forthcoming book, The Light & the Rod. It uses writings of Machiavelli, Hobbes, Spinoza, Locke, and Rousseau to demonstrate teh outcome of trying to reconcile Judeo-Christian ideas with pagan ones. But this too is nothing new. We can trace this idea back to the period just prior to the Renaissance and Enlightenment. Pagan philosophy was only preparatory for Christian ideas; it is not consistent with them. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Last year I wrote about the natural rights we possess, where they came from, and why we have them. But over the last several weeks, as I lay in a hospital, I had lots of time to think—and of course watch movies. There wasn’t much else I could do. What I noticed made me realize I’d missed an important point about our natural rights. This article addresses that omission.

Well, we had two more mass shootings this past week. Both done by people who held very different beliefs. But their cause is the same. I believe there is a solution that solves both cases, if we are courageous enough a people to accept it and act accordingly.

We hear today compromise is needed to get things done. But what exactly does this mean? Surely compromise requires common ground? This article explores some items likely to appear in the Left’s platform for this and next year’s elections, and why those items contradict our natural rights and biblical governing principles. While aimed at Christians, the arguments should matter to anyone who wants to truly remain free.
