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.

America’s public education faces many problems. But how did we get here, and more importantly, how can we fix it? To understand how to fix anything, we must first understand the core problem. The core problem begins with today’s view of rights.

The April third Virginia March for Life was a fantastic event. An estimated 6,500+ Virginians came from all over the state, representing all ages and races. They recognized the right to life's importance, and were duly concerned with events from this last legislative session. People shared their testimonies about why we should care, why recognizing life matters. This is all very good.

We are in a war, one that we did not want nor start. A war declared on us simply because we do not profess the faith and values one group thinks we should have. Confronting the Deception sines a light on how misinformation is used in this war, one that has now lasted fourteen hundred years.

What possible connection could there be between today’s society and a Star Trek episode? Amok was a period during the Vulcan mating process where all their logic was cast aside. Raw emotion ruled their actions to such an extent they were willing to do anything to achieve their goal—because the end had to be achieved whatever the cost. Is our society any different today?

The previous article outlined differences in ideas and why they matter, using Virginia's proposed Equal Rights Amendment. I've written more generally in other articles about why ideas matter. They shape our decisions and influence our actions. Our actions form our character, and our character determines who we choose to become. But it all begins with ideas. You produce what you take in.
