Living in the Land of Lies discussed some progressive principles, how they impact society and differ from our founding ideas. Progressive ideas are not limited to any particular political party. This article draws from the 2016 Democratic Party Platform, a platform steeped in progressive ideas representing man’s enlightenment of himself. Man turned toward man, or man and man alone.

My heart goes out to those at the recent Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting. My prayers are with you, your families, the first responders, and medical personnel who assisted those who were wounded. It was truly a calamity, but as we’ll see in a bit there were also some very hopeful moments in the midst of the tragedy.

This article examines our governance, specifically its guiding principles. This article is not party specific. It doesn’t matter whether you have a ‘D’, ‘I’, or ‘R’ after your name. One’s ideology and derived principles are what matter, and today’s ideological buzz word is ‘progressive.’ People holding progressive ideas exist in both major parties, and are outlined below. Later, we’ll review portions of the 2016 Democratic Party Platform for its underlying principles, not picking on that particular partybut today’s Democratic party is largely controlled by communists and socialists. Their platform provides all the evidence needed to see where they actually stand, regardless of what they say.

This final article continues discussions from last time considering why God must be good. To go further, someone good must be just, as justice is the virtue of giving each their due. The worker earns their wages and should be paid what they have earned. It is morally right. Doing the moral thing is good. Therefore a moral being must give someone what they have earned. As God is not only good, but the source of good, He must also be morality’s source.

This series ends by going back to the beginning, why these articles were written in the first place. First, the present inter-faith discussions do not promote open dialogue. The outcome is determined by its participants before an event begins. Second, Islam’s supporters use these events to paint a false picture of Islam and thereby promote division among the uninformed within Richmond’s Jewish and Christian communities. Third, as just alluded to, many Christian’s understanding of their own faith today is so thin they do not understand the differences between Christianity and Islam—let alone why they matter.

It is amazing how much things can change in a month. Only about four weeks ago the Charlottesville, VA riot occurred. There was endless media analysis about what had happened and what it signified, the first of many more ‘race riots.’ All the ‘facts’ were in, interpreted and tied into a single neat package. America was accused, tried, and convicted by the left using the values of the left by the court of the left.

There is a lot of talk today that the current administration is populist. Is it true or, like many other stories carried by today’s media, just another lie? Populism is a form of collectivism, similar to socialism and communism. It focuses on;

Early charity in America was based on the idea of the deserving and undeserving poor. These have their basis in the Bible. We are to provide for those in need (Matt. 5 & 6). We are to take care of those first within our family (1 Tim.), and those who are capable of taking care of themselves are to do so to the extent they can (2 Thes.). Charity is a matter of helping another create their own independence. Not an independence in respect to autonomy from God, but instead a greater ability to each fulfill our purpose - that of being transformed toward good by our actions and the virtue we develop.

During the week before the July 4th holiday, we vacationed in the Carolinas. We were reminded of the many sacrifices made by those serving in our armed forces. Fort Moultrie in Charlestown was one example. It was the site of one of the earliest colonial victories against the British in our war for independence, and was in service through the end of WW II. We thank those who are, and have been, in the armed services for your service and sacrifice.

Things took a turn for the worse last Tuesday (June 13) with the deliberate shooting of people practicing for a Congressional ballgame in Northern Virginia. Like it or not, we are in a civil war - one of contradictory and incompatible ideas. Up to last Tuesday it had just not been a shooting war, but there is no doubt the first shot was fired last Tuesday. I pray that it will be the last and only incident. Hatred and division has been stoked by eight years of the Obama administration and continued by those supporting his party’s ideas. We have not been this divided since before the war between the states.

Being successful requires understanding both the languages of reason and faith; reason alone is insufficient.
