An Open Letter to the Democrat Party

Trump represents a political philosophy that isn’t welcome among those who enjoy seeing themselves as their own bottom line. Capitalism, Christianity, and a Republican form of government flies in the face of those who prefer Socialism, Humanism, and a government that restricts individual freedoms as part of supposed effort to weed out those who are […]

Justice…?

Psalm 14:1 says: The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. (Ps 14:1) What do you suppose that kind of perspective looks like when it shows up in a court of law? What is really being said by a witness when they’re asked to raise […]

There’s No Such Thing as the Separation of Church and State

There’s no such thing as the “separation of church and state,” at least not in the way that phrase is usually used today. Every government that has ever been conceived by man is based on a theological premise of some kind in that it will structure its approach to legislation according to the way it […]

See For Yourself…

There are two kinds of information: the kind that brings clarity to the Truth the kind that is designed to distract from it When you take a comment out of context, you don’t have a quote, you have a noise, which makes it harder to hear the truth. In order for something to qualify as […]

Locke grew up and lived through one of the most extraordinary centuries of English political and intellectual history. It was a century in which conflicts between the Crown and […]

Trump represents a political philosophy that isn’t welcome among those who enjoy seeing themselves as their own bottom line. Capitalism, Christianity, and a Republican form of government flies in the face of those who prefer Socialism, Humanism, and a government that restricts individual freedoms as part of supposed effort to weed out those who are […]

What’s Your Point?

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. (Ps 14:1) What’s your point? When you say, “You can’t force your beliefs on me,” what’s your point? If what I’m saying is true and you respond by saying that you’re […]

Two Religions

There’s only two religions in the world. Either God is God or you are. First of all, “religion” is simply the term given to the way you answer four basic questions: Where did I come? (Origin) What happens when I die? (Destiny) How am I supposed to behave? (Morality) What’s the point of my existence? […]

Something to Hide

Although it’s not always the case, when you hear someone say, “That’s your opinion,” you’re hearing someone who can’t disagree with what’s being said without sounding selfish or foolish. Knowing they can’t get people to agree with them, they focus instead on getting people to feel sorry for them by asserting the idea that to […]

Who’s In Charge?

Who’s in charge? The Oval Office? It changes every 4-8 years. How about the Supreme Court? They can reverse their decision.1 When our Founding Fathers delivered their Declaration of Independence to King George, they began by answering that question by saying our rights were not dispensed by a monarch, rather they were guaranteed by God.2 […]
