The last article presented why corruption has grown in our society as we’ve fallen away from God. Today we’ll take a brief look at how erasing our history contributes to this change.

Things just get stranger as the year goes on. This weekend is the July 4th holiday, celebrating the American Colonies declaring independence from Britain. Their actions acknowledge our Creator, His law, our equal nature, His endowing man with certain natural rights, and government’s purpose in securing those rights.

God designated two spheres of power where man is to exercise dominion. They are God’s through His act of creation and not man’s. He provides their basis so both require stewardship. They are religion and governance. The first teaches people what is right and good. The second enacts justice when someone acts unjustly. Our natural rights to assemble and communicate give us the opportunity to learn and practice doing good as individuals and a society. This occurs through the customs, behavioral expectations and standards we create through our choices.

We hear this phrase daily from the media, CDC, on the radio, in ads and articles. But what does it really mean? The last several articles looked events around the Coronavirus in relation to the end times. We can use those same events to learn about our responsibility for stewardship and duty. We’ll focus on the relationship aspect first as that is more relevant. Stewardship over things will come later.

Jan Markell recently wrote about the church’s silence regarding current events and the end times. I had to smile as I read it, as I was in the process of putting this article together. She closed with “You can almost hear their hooffbbeats.”

 

I say they are here and have been for some time. The four horsemen mark the beginning of God’s first set of judgments in the book of Revelation. Judgment occurs because of man’s rejecting God’s laws. We have the free will to make that choice, but it comes with consequences.

This article is not about the Chinese people. They are our brothers and sisters in Christ; made in God’s image as we are. It concerns China’s leaders and government. Their ideas result in corrupt immoral actions. Witness their influence in institutions such as the World Health Organization. China’s leaders allowing 9 million Chinese to leave the country when they knew there was a serious health crisis is irresponsible. But these are only the most recent in a long train of abuses. The Chinese people also suffer under their leadership. And yet many in our media advocate on China’s behalf. Obama’s Education Secretary praised their education system saying, “There is much we can learn from them.” Do we really want to model such ungodly immoral behavior? Actions showing a complete lack of love and compassion for our fellow man and God. I think not. But what should we do?

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.

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.
