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.

The prior article focused on justice. Today’s focuses on life, but not the political hype surrounding the issue.

This next series extends the conversation begun last time. That article ended with the statement that today’s liberals are betting prosperity can only occur under government direction. Its all about achieving specific ends, ends that must be directed from the top. That is the basis for their false claim the Obama administration’s policies are responsible for this past year’s economic growth.
